The residence was clean, the staff helpful and friendly, and walking distance to plenty of great sites and restaurants.

The Mercer House Boria Bcn can best be described as a must-see hotel. Opened in 2005, this hotel is housed in a small palace from the 18th century. Meticulous effort has been made to preserve the historic features of the building, especially its gorgeous exterior. The 11 immaculate lofts, rooms, and suites are elegantly decorated with refined taste and feature carpeting and hardwood floors, paintings, large dining rooms, and exposed wooden ceiling beams. Everything inside is extremely modern and meant to cater to your every need. The terrace on the top of the building provides a great view of the Barcelona Cathedral, the Santa Maria del Mar Church, and the Mediterranean Sea. If you are looking for something with a unique character combining history and modern comforts, the Mercer House Boria Bcn will exceed all your expectations.

Convienent, clean, and well suited for parent(s) with three teens”
We stayed in the Mercer House Boria for 2 nights as a stop over in Barcelona. The suite was perfect with excellent air conditioning, a nice sitting area, and two separate sleeping spaces. It gave our family enough space to spread out, a needed break after traveling long hours together. The residence was clean, the staff helpful and friendly, and walking distance to plenty of great sites and restaurants. From this locale, you can easily walk to La Rambla, the History of Barcelona Musuem, the Cathedral, and many shops in the Gothic District. I thought hot water was a problem (I took several very cold showers), but learned from my children that I was turning the tap the wrong way! I should have asked! Breakfast was convienent and had enough variety to satisfy all, to include one vegan teen.
Great location & Enjoyable stay”
We stayed here for a couple of days before a cruise and would stay here again. If you want to stay in the Gothic Quarter, you couldn't have a better location. Staff was helpful and pleasant. With only a short stay we didn't utilize the kitchen in our room, but if we would if we were to stay longer. Our room and bed were comfortable. The only thing missing was the lighting (a few more lights would be great). Breakfast is included. An absolutely delightful buffet spread, European style. But the fabulous chef will also cook eggs to order (and they were excellent). Definitely check out the Mercer House for your next visit to Barcelona!
Fantastic boutique hotel with amazing staff”
I settled on Mercer House because I loved the location. Having lived in Barcelona I knew this was exactly where I wanted to stay. What turned this into the perfect stay was the amazing staff, th beautiful large & spacious accommodation & the delicious breakfast. I will continue to return to Mercer House.
Great location but not very comfortable ”
Mercer House Boria BCN is in a great location, walking distance to Las Ramlbas and many other sites. Train station is a few metres away as is the taxi rank. Unfortunately from a comfort perspective, the beds were hard as rock and the bathroom very awkward. Also strange smell came from the shower area. Although on the 4 the floor you could hear people outside when walking loudly down the alley ways. It is unfortunate as the staff are lovely and assisted us in many different areas.
The room (loft) we booked was more like an apartment with a kitchen. Pretty spacious and clean. Also the interior design was quite nice. The location of the hotel is superb and you can reach almost every sightseeing attraction by foot! There is also a near subway station. We purchased a 5 days Barcelona Card but NEVER used it because we walked to all spots. The hotel is a little bit difficult to find. It's exactly there where google maps directs you. Watch out for a big wooden door. There is no hotel sign board or something like that. We haven't tried the breakfast at the hotel as the food outside is a lot more tempting. I can definitely recommend the hotel for the price (around 180 Euro per night) and the location as well as the room comfort. Enjoy your stay. Barcelona is a great city!
Perfect location ”
Loved Boria! Perfect location. Walking distance to everything. Apartment was big and had a lot of character very old building renovated beautifully! A little noise on street at night. Very authentic!
Beautiful and wonderful location but...”
This hotel is absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend it for its cleanliness, location, and look It's very clean, very quaint and really well located. It doesn't have a swimming pool or 'facilities' but it has everything else when it comes to beautiful scenery. We were upgraded to a suite and wow! That was beautiful! The lady at check in was really very helpful and kind - she really took the time to write on a map and give us suggestions and directions so we were delighted with her help as we only had 1 night!!!! Little issues we found: -not wheelchair friendly for sure - a lot of staircases (even in the bedroom) and no bell man to help you with the luggage. When you ask the receptionist to help you, you are subject to a little attitude (when we checked in- the girl was awesome but when we checked out, wow we had one grumpy woman!) -we had booked our hotel stay with breakfast as we intended to have breakfast before leaving barcelona on a 14 hour flight journey but it appears breakfast starts at 8.30am and when we asked, we were told very strictly & rudely (same check out woman) that we weren't going to get any breakfast even though we paid for it as we were checking out too early (would it have been impossible to give us a few croissants and a coffee before we left?? Or maybe a refund on breakfast could have been offered!) Aside from those two points - I will most certainly recommend this place. A lil bit more service minded attitude and it will be a perfect place to stay!
Great place located in the innercity of Barcelona. In the very heart of Barcelona. Only one night the man at the desk was on toilet for 5-10 minutes and couldnt let us in..
Fantastic location for exploring Barcelona. Excellent, comfortable room. It was quiet despite being in the heart of el Born. The breakfast was high quality and delicious.
We love this hotel. We did not expect based on previous reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised! The place is difficult to find, but once you find it, it is really easy to get around to major places. The hotel is clean and the room we had is perfect. Thank you for a wonderful visit. We had a great time!
Mid week break”
Excellent location, friendly staff. Room slightly on the small side for four star. Facilities slightly limited - (no bar) - overall merits the excellent reviews - the location alone is worth this.
Lovely hotel in the center of Barcelona”
we loved this hotel. we spend three nights here and we very pleased. the rooms have been renovated and they looked very new. our suite had a bedroom and a living room, with kitchen and a fridge so it is very convenient if you want to keep food or beverages. the hotel is superbly located in the born area and is walking distance to all the walking tours of the old town.

The best you can have, when you are out of home..for a reasonable price..outlook may not be 100% but..location, rooms staf, service and availability of everything makes it a wonderful place.
Cold and lacked atmosphere ”
The location is perfect, the staff were very helpful and friendly but overall I think the hotel needs some love. The bathrooms were quite tired as were the rooms. Also there was an unsettling smell in the second bedroom which we weren't going to use anyway but it forced us to keep the door closed at all times. It was good value for money but only because of the discount we obtained on your site. Granted it was 7c outside and it Jan but we found the hotel very cold with no atmosphere...
Fabulous and big room”
Loved staying here, breakfast was great, large room with kitchen and very clean. Location can’t be beat and the price was superb
Lovely boutique hotel. Fantastic breakfast! Amazing location in Gothic Quarter. We booked a “superior” room but it was small and basic. It was very noisy at night - but the location is worth it and earplugs worked a treat. Staff were all wonderful.
We are repeat visitors and will return again, amazing staff”
We have stayed in three different rooms and enjoyed all of them. The lower smaller rooms are darker but perfect for sleeping, the two upper loft rooms were very spacious and well appointed with kitchenettes. All had the same comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. Breakfast was excellent. Staff was very friendly and helpful, we would love to return.
Loved this hotel”
Great location within walking distance of most sights. Our room was huge and perfect for traveling with our older teenage boys. It had a small kitchen with a nice size fridge. You could get food and cook in if you wanted. Beds a bit hard, pillows a bit soft. Nice breakfast included. The staff was nice and helpful in recommending sites and restaurants. Even helped us when we had a dental emergency😢 Would highly recommend!!!
Recommendable accommodation in Barcelona”
1. Great location for tourists. Many restaurants and shops around. 2. Spacious room. 3. Some facilities in the room are broken e.g. kitchen cupboard. 4. Super friendly and helpful staff. My flight was delayed and I arrived 3 am in the morning. I called before hand and the staff reassured me that the guard will get the door and key would be ready. 5. Super friendly staff were willing to provide me with all information. 6. Hotel is located in a lane but taxi can still stop at the door.
Fantastic location - worth a stay!”
The hotel is conveniently located near a metro station in the Gothic Quarters, with tons of amenities and restaurants around. The hotel was nice enough to let us check in early and even gave us a free upgrade to a loft room. The space in the room is amazing, but much room for design in the loft area which was completely empty! Cleanliness in the room was sub-par, mostly because of the many dust bunnies at the side of the bed! Still worth another stay because of the great location
