Mercer House Bòria Bcn

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a small boutique hotel on a tiny street off of a main road. I love the windy narrow streets of El Born, I think the hotel is in the perfect location, tons of places to eat, bars, restaurants, shops etc right near by. We walked pretty much everywhere we wanted to go in BCN, only ever took one taxi. They didnt have the loft room we reserved available when we checked in so they gave us a free upgrade. We ended up with a huge open room with a second bedroom, full kitchen, two balconies, and a private patio! They give you free bottled water as a welcome. You can control the heat. The bathroom was also huge. My only complaints are that the hot water in the shower ran out faster than I'd like and the hairdryer is the type that is attached to the wall and not at all powerful; but that is all very minor, overall I would stay here again in a second. There is a very nice roof top patio and the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. High recommend!

Since we flew into Barcelona, we wanted to be very central and this was certainly it. Great location. We had a family loft suite on top floor and it was huge. King bed in main loft space and separate bedroom with door and queen bed. It's noisy in the neighborhood but quiets down by 11ish. (we never figured out the air conditioners so left the windows open and slept with ear plugs.) Good firm beds. A kitchen which we barely used but appreciated the possibilities and made some tea and coffee. They have two nice outdoor spaces one flight from the top floor and breakfast is classy and nice. No eggs tho - would have liked a bit more protein. But good coffee and nice setting. Good value for the hotel.

This place is warm. I mean it got soul and style. And we loved it very much. It was a birthday weekend and Mercer House Boria was an essential part. First of all, it is ideally located. Everything is at hand and the local district is ancient and authentic, packed with restaurants and bars. Beach is a 15 minute walk and what a pleasure to swim in the sea in October! The second benefit is a wonderful design which is based on the ancient origin of the building, but also generates that modern style, which results in genuine flavor of taste and cozy luxury. Everybody very open and willing to help. God bless all of them! We love you, friends! Your place is lovely and inspirational! We will come back with pleasure! See you soon!

We had a Gran Suite, with 4 beds and 2 bath rooms. The food was fitted with a mini kitchen with fridge and dishwasher. One of the bath rooms only had these semi-see-through doors that appears to be popular in new hotels. Clean room and good beds. Got some tips for restaurants and attractions from the reception staff. Basic breakfast spread, but it is satisfactory. The woman handling the breakfast was very sincere about the arrangement. The hotel has 2 roof terraces ( ca 30 m^2 each) with sun beds that is nice when the temperature is good. Very good location in the vicinity of the most tourist locations ( Las Rambla, Barri Gottic, Passeig de Gracia, Citadel park, Barcelonetta etc), yet a bit away from the most crowded streets. Will definitely come back.

This place is a real disappointment form the moment you walked in. 6 sharp steps to get to the elevator and as you catch your breath carrying your luggage you area exposed to an elevator that fit 1 person and a suitcase. We hired a service apartment and when we got there we were confronted with another 6 sharp steps going down that led to what i thought was our dwelling for a short period. This apartment had to service 4 adults and you had to over come some flaws. 1 toilet, glassed and in the bathroom 1 bathroom with the walls not going all the way to the roof. You can imagine what happensed when some one went to the toilet for relief A bedroom with the walls not going all the way to the roof The most uncomfortable king bed (As hard as a rock) Breakfast was ordinary at best but then again what could you expect A view of birds being captured in nets at the building across and the piece de resistance The continuous odour of smelly pipes and a strong ammonia like disinfectant If you can over come all the flaws above this is the place for you in the heart of the gothic quarter in Barcelona - Mind you the staff were very helpful at all times

Centrally located for tourist purposes. Spacious Loft rooms. Plug points not very convenient. Great breakfast spread. Slow service though. Good quality rooms & common areas. Approach & entrance a little tricky due to the street layout. overall positive experience

We had high expectations based on good reviews and photos but checked into our suite to find cheap furniture, dirty walls, walls stained by drips from the air conditionioner, nylon pillows and all the views were onto ugly concrete building making the room very dark and dingy. Nothing like any of the photos. Depressing, charmless and ugly. We had to prepay for 3 nights before arrival €280 per night (which should be enough to get some quality) and after seeing the horrible room we immediately asked if we could get a refund and move hotels at least after the first night but were told there was no chance of any refund whatsoever which seemed very against any basic consumer rights. We were stuck and very unhappy and would never recommend this place to anyone.

Escape the crowds of the Ramblas in this cute boutique hotel. We had a suite that was very nice and quite reasonably priced for what it was. No breakfast or food of any kind in the hotel that we were aware of but we did have a coffee machine and a kitchen in the room to make ourselves what we needed and plenty of nice places nearby to eat. Would definitely return.

Ultra modern and cozy boutique hotel with excellent location downtown walkable to everything. Laia checked us in and couldn't have been more helpful or kind. She spent an hour planning our day actually listening to what we wanted to do and see, helped book tickets for museums and recommended great walking tours outside of the touristy areas. Loved Gracia area! Room 401 was incredibly huge and felt like a loft apartment. Will def stay here again! Thanks for a great evening in BCN.

The staff couldn't be more helpful. We had a loft room which was quiet from street noise but not from upstairs neighbor. Delicious breakfast with fresh fruit and breads, yogurt and chef on hand for special requests. Excellent location in the Born district. I'll return!
