    Luxury Boutique Hotel in Barri Gòtic


    Tucked away in a small plaça in Barri Gòtic behind the Barcelona Cathedral, this stunning palace-turned-hotel is named after Carrer Sant Felip Neri, the small alley where it is located. The 18th century building hides a cutting edge interior with only 22 rooms and top amenities. Its location, in the heart of old Barcelona is unmatched. This is where I wanted to stay in June 2008, but the price was higher than our budget (especially because of the declining dollar!), so instead we chose to stay at Hotel Cram. We visited the hotel to take a look and were highly impressed. The hotel's restaurant seemed decent too. If you decide to stay here, make sure you bring luggage with wheels, for it is hard for the cars to park in front of the entrance in this old part of town with narrow streets.

    Directions: At Plaça Sant Felip Neri, just behind the Cathedral

  • In the Heart of Barri Gotic


    Excellent 4 star hotel in the heart of the Gothic Quarter a block away from the Cathedral. A truly "hidden" gem as locals do not even know where it is. Due to heavy foot traffic in the area, it is not easily accessible by car. Taxis are available 2 blocks south at Placa St. Jaume. This is also the location where you should request that the taxi drop you off. Trying to find it for the first time from La Rambla is like walking through a maze.

    Unique Quality: Great central location for visiting the Picasso Museum, waterfront, Montjuic, La Boqueria, Placa Catalunya and short metro ride to Sagrada Familia. It was an 18th century palace that has been remodeled with interior design that is absolutely beautiful and relaxing. We stayed there in early December and were able to get a suite for 270 Euro from, which is less than the rack rate for a standard room.

    Directions: Barri Gotic - one block west of Catedral off Bisbe

More about Hotel Neri

Església de Sant Felip Neri

by MM212

The small church of Sant Felip Neri is located on a secluded namesake plaça right next to the Cathedral. It is part of the 17th century Convent of Sant Felip Neri, which is accessible from behind the church on Carrer de la Palla. The Baroque-style church, however, is a later edifice, dating from 1750. Above the entrance is a statue of the saint himself. Opposite the church, on the same square, is the medieval palau housing the elegant Hotel Neri.

Great food and atmosphere

by rnleviine about Neri Restaurant in Neri Hotel

The Neri Restaurant lived up to its expectations. The food was great, as was the service and the atmosphere. It was expensive, but worth it. Not huge portions, but very satsifying. The food, according to the chef, is an updated Catalan style. The pork cooked for 14 hours with a lime chimichuri sauce was amazing. Also, the tuna spring roll and the watermelon salad were great. We also tried the pasta starter with jamon and asparagus, which was just okay.

Need to return to the Neri!!

by TripAdvisor Member leehill1507

Just returned from a fabulous weekend at the Hotel Neri. What a great place to stay. The design of the hotel is truly funky, without being over the top. The rooms are all of a modern style, with the bathrooms finished in stone. The lighting and the BOSE speaker system in the bathrooms are all nice touches, not to mention the wide-screen TV and CD player in the bedroom.

The roof terrace was nice, but we didn't have the weather for it. The breakfast looks a little expensive at 18 Euros, but when it arrived, it was well worth the money!

All staff are friendly and helpful, and can't do enough for you.

With regards to the location - it couldn't be better - 5 mins walk from Las Ramblas / Catalunya Square, and 2 mins from the Cathedral in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. I have noticed some comments about not being able to get a taxi to the door - big deal! It's a two-minute walk at the most; a small price to pay for the experience you will have when you arrive.

The best!

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Hotel Neri is one of the best I've ever stayed in! All of the staff that I ran into were nothing but fabulous, friendly, and accomodating. It is a little noisy, but if you're going to stay in the city, you should expect this! I personally think it added to the charm. You cannot find a better location, close to so many things. We were only there for 1 day and we saw so much just by walking. Cabs do drop you off a little ways away from the hotel but it is not dangerous! My husband and I had no problem walking to the hotel from the cab with 3 suitcases and a carry-on. Contrary to what some people have written, you will not be worn out or perspiring from the walk!! The rooms were ultra-modern and the staff will explain EVERYTHING electronic in your room to you! We would definitely stay here again and have recommended this to many others!! Enjoy!!

Honeymooning in Neri

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband and I just spent four nights in the Neri Hotel on our honeymoon in Barcelona and would recommend it highly to anyone.
Best points - rose flavoured drink on arrival, chilled cava in the room for the honeymoon couple, very large bath (more than enough room for two!) in stone finished bathroom, large plasma screen tv with films on demand, chocolates and weather forecast on your pillow every evening, charming and extremely helpful staff, the beautifully designed roof terrace, and all things considered, pretty reasonable price for what was on offer.
Some tips - the restaurant is lovely but pricey, and don't eat until after 9:30pm or you'll feel very conspicuous as you'll be the only ones there and the staff are very attentive. Given the time again, I would not eat there at all, as I felt the experience of eating in the nearby tapas bars was altogether more enjoyable and easier on the wallet. Same goes for breakfast, which can be found for a whole lot cheaper than 18Euros.
The walk to the hotel is easy, and the small amount of exercise required will do you good after you spend time in Catalonia eating all the lovely food on offer!
The noise from the school can be a bit much, but it's also charming (what nicer noise than kids playing???) It didn't bother us a bit.

just nice...

by A TripAdvisor Member

We were not informed about the fact that you have to carry your luggage for more than 5 minutes because the taxi can not get to the hotel. This is not nice specially when is raining.
The hotel is very nice but the neighborhood is dangerous and dirty... Not recommendable.

Very good

by TripAdvisor Member debsam3

We stayed at Neri in Sept, for the first few nights of our honeymoon and loved it. The architecture and design is great. We loved our room. It had a view over San Neri square and we were never bothered by the noise. The rooms are a little on the small side but are laid out very well so we never felt cramped. We loved the location, very central, and never felt concerned for our safety. It is in one of the oldest parts of the city and so there are many narrow alleyways, but tons of shops and people. The walk from where the cabs can drop you off is really not bad, not even a block. We would highly recommend this place to someone interested in staying in a unique hotel.

Discreet Charms Of The Neri

by TripAdvisor Member nosittap

On Tripadvisor comments I booked this hotel for a short 4 day break - we weren't disappointed. It is the perfect small hotel with the emphasis on quality rather than quantity. Having travelled extensively, far too many hotels rely upon offering a plethora of services that guests will never use. The Neri, in common with good hotels, simply concentrates on providing excellent accomodation where a good nights sleep is guaranteed, excellent assistance from the helpful staff, and a wonderful location for sightseeing.

The hotel deserves to succeed.

Barcelona hotels question

by geniehk2003

I was wondering if anyone has stayed or heard anything about Hotel Neri and/or Hotel Banys Orientals? I think the Hotel Neri just opened a few days ago, and the Banys Orientals opened a year ago. We are visiting Barcelona in November, and would like to stay in a charming boutique hotel that's not too expensive. Thanks!

Re: Barcelona hotels question

by listenandlearn

Between HOtel Neri or Hotel Banys, we would suggest you book at Hotel Banys Orientals...except that the location is not too safe when dark other than that for what the cost would be Hotel Banys Orientals would be best.

Re: Re: Barcelona hotels question

by annnnne

The area of Banys Orientals not too safe????
El Borne is really a happening area and very lively, I would say that it is a very safe area, especially calle Argenteria where Banys Orientals is located.

I heard that Banys Orientals is full booked untill the end of the year though..

Hotel Neri seems nice to me too, but if you're worried about safety, these narrow streets around the cathedral are not unsafe, but more quiet by night..

Re: Re: Barcelona hotels question

by TimMiles

I have just returned from four nights at Banys Orientals - very nice indeed, but the room I had overlooked an alley and was a little dark, so ask for a room with light, or on the front. Very nice interior though and great restaurant next door and very good value. And safety? The street is 50 feet away from a main road and the pedestrianised street that the hotel is on itself was packed every night with people until the (very small areas), and as one poster says, El Born is a very happening (and busy) area. Perhaps best not to go wandering down any of the smaller alleys unless you kn0ow where you are going though

Thumbs up from me though.
