An appealing blend of historic charm and contemporary flourishes
Housed in a retrofitted neo-classic mansion at the heart of the Gothic Quarter, EXE Laietana Palace is an elegant hotel of palatial proportions. History is palpable at this upscale retreat. Guests gaze right at the Roman wall of ancient Barcino from the back of the property. This oasis amidst the hubbub of Catalonia's capital features soundproofed rooms overlooking either the busy thoroughfare of Via Laietana or the Roman wall. Up-to-the-minute rooms come equipped with plasma TV, free Wi-Fi and hydro-massage in the bathrooms.
Highlights
  • Great location at the heart of the Gothic Quarter
  • Free Wi-Fi in all rooms
  • Hydro-massage column in the tubs
Rooms
Fresh modern design bathed in natural light graces the 62 soundproofed double rooms at EXE Laietana Palace. Each is fully-equipped with plasma-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. The vertical hydro-massage column in the bathtub features various water jets for an ultra-relaxing shower. The attic rooms come with a slanted glass roof. Some units boast ancient views of the Roman wall. Also available are triple rooms and rooms adapted for disabled visitors. The spacious junior suite showcases a private terrace with a table and chairs, ideal for an alfresco night above Barcelona rooftops.
Features

Location is the main asset of this distinguished hotel in the midst of the Gothic Quarter. A quick walk from EXE Laietana Palace sit many of the area's ancient attractions, including the Roman wall of Barcino. More contemporary pleasures are also nearby in the fashionable Born district with its plethora of hip shops and bars. With heaps of eating options near the hotel and room service available, guests don't even notice an on-site restaurant missing. A real perk for nighthawks: breakfast is served till 11 a.m. At the heart of Barcelona's cultural hub, EXE Laietana Palace is fittingly strong on culture. It houses temporary shows by various artists and has a library with a range of art and urban studies books.

nice hotel, good location

Great location on a road parallel to la rambla in the gothic quarter, right near the jaume 1 subway entrance AND the stop for the barcelona tourist bus. It's right next to the cathedral. Enjoyed the stay. AC works great, rooms are clean. Bathrooms have good showers. They speak some english, though the morning staff is better at it. have one computer for internet in the lobby which is free for guests-decent connection and not much of a wait for it. overall, great experience perched in a great location to see barcelona.

Worst hotel experience I've ever had. E

Absolutely horrible experience. The location is bad, staff unfriendly. Very little English, rude about directions. No carpet in rooms, all rooms small and noisy. Was sick, had to spend time in room--only CNN abnd BBC news. Rooms were cold and heating didn 't work well. Showers had broken or missing shelves, no bathtubs. No shampoo or conditioner. Only one roll of toilet paper at a time. This is barely a two star hotel at best. One block on either side are millions of hotels that are ten times better
