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.
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.
Property 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.

perfectly sited

the hotel EXE Laietana Palace Hotel is situated perfectly for all the major areas of interest in the city. it sits on the edge of the gothic, el born and barcelonette, and just a short walk from the Ramblas. there are a bewildering selection of excellent restaurants, tapas and pintxos bars with in a short walk. Both The Cathedral and the Sancta Maria are close by as is the wonderful market place which we found ideal for a late breakfast. would recommend a trip on the touristic buses to get your bearings, but it is really easy to get around and find your way. Our room , a small double, was comfortable with an excellent bathroom. it was a little too warm for my liking even in February and opening the window wasnt really an option due to the noise of the traffic, but this was not a serious problem. all in all we greatly enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

Amazing stay

The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The hotel has a great location 2 minutes from the seafront and the port, and located in the Gothic area has some stunning architecture. Our room was perfect with comfy beds a beatiful bathroom which was spotlessly clean. I would recommend this hotel, much better than i expected.

Location is PERFECT

The best thing about this hotel is location. It's on the edge of Gothic and El Born quarters, both are very lively areas with beautiful little streets to walk and so many great restaurants and shops. Hotel itself is pretty basic, more like a three star, but the staffs are wonderful. Angela at front desk really tried hard to try to accommodate us. She helped us get a quiet room since my husband is a light sleeper, and eventually got us a room facing the old Roman wall. The view was amazing!! Room is a bit small, but normal in Europe. Bed is old and noisy, which was the thing we disliked the most about this hotel. In general, we loved it here and would definitely recommend it.

Great location, good for 1-2 nights

Convinient hotel, great location surrounded of coffee shops, metro and other turistic places. Room too small and old furniture but clean and comfortable. Recommended only with deal/discount.

staff cared for us

We arrived late and had a comfortable room but next to a lift shaft which kept us awake all night - then we had a plumbing nightmare the next night in a change of room in the great flood of 2012. Sounds bad but the hotel did their very best to try and sort things out and did really well! a very good hotel and despite the problems would recommend as they did everything they could in very difficult circumstances

Good location for strolls around the city

The hotel has a very good location in the centre of Barcelona, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was kept clean and towels changed every day . The air con has just a switch on and off not a control device to adjust temperature. The TV remote control doesn't work properly it is actually not suitable for the TV set. The WiFi internet was missing all the time.

Small hotel next to the Gothic quarter

If you love ancient part of the city this hotel has perfect location. Just few steps to the Medieval streets and walking distance to La Rambla etc. Hotel is small -- about 50 rooms. Staff on reception is very friendly and welcoming. Frankly I've never seen any other staff but room has been cleaned daily. I have never had their breakfast because there are a lot of restaurants around. This was our first time in Barcelona and we spent most of the time outside so the room size and amenities was not a priority. However, rooms are so small that it was hard to pack two suitcases in a time. The sound insulation have a lot of potential for improvement. The hotel provides free WiFi in rooms, but you have to login every time and every device have to have a separate password. It is a bit annoying. Overall impression -- good location friendly environment but small and some disturbance from neighbors.
