Recent guest reviews
Amazing boutique hotel in the Gothic quarter. Pleasant staff, great breakfast, nice size rooms. There was a very sweet young concierge that worked evenings, I believe her name was Leila, she was amazing!! So helpful-- answered all our questions, gave plenty of awesome recommendations and truly made us feel welcome! Thank you for a great stay.
The hotel facilities were good and the staff was amazing. The street where iris is located need some improvement in terms of environment and illumination. Even when you do not have to be worried about security issues...it was a bit scary for my wife and kids! Everything else very good. The air conditioning of RH main room should be a bit bigger.
Loved the authentic old Spain feel (not commercialized modern hotel). Loved the huge room! Loved the location!
Hotel Boria Bcn is in the heart of the Gothic quarter. The location is perfect! With the bars, restaurants, museums, and shops of the Gothic quarter and El Born at your feet, leaving the area is almost not necessary. If you choose to leave, which you should do, almost all of the major sites of the enchanting city are walking distance (the walk back from Sagrada Familia, for example, was a simple trek). My mother and I arrived early on our first day, arriving at the hotel well before check-in. We took a taxi directly from the airport which dropped us off on a different street (making the hotel a bit difficult to find). Ask the hotel for taxi directions before arriving. Given our early arrival, the staff stored our luggage while our room was being prepared, gave us a map and clear directions to some sites in the area and sent us on our way. It was great to catch the city in the morning. With the elevator, getting our luggage to our room was easy. The accommodations were spacious and apartment-like (complete with fridge, microwave, bottled water, and kettle), with a nice homey feel. However, given the lack of direct sunlight to the rooms, they were chilly, quite chilly. My mother and I are often cold, so we were worried. Thankfully, there were two heaters (one in the living room, and one in one of the bedrooms) which we left on to heat up the rooms. There was also a bit of mold in the shower, but nothing too terrible. The beds were quite comfortable, and the curtains blocked out almost all light. I don't know if it was because we were so tired at night, but noticed very little street noise. We opted out of the breakfast plan as there were plenty of cafes in the area offering breakfast. Overall, our stay was quite pleasant. It's a beautiful building in a perfect location. The staff was more than helpful and made any travel arrangements (taxis, printing tickets, etc) that we needed. If I'm ever back in Barcelona, I will be staying at Hotel Boria Bcn again.
Couldn't have asked for a better place! Tremendous area if you are looking to explore Barcelona and all it's neighborhoods. Only tough part will be finding the hotel. Located on a small alley with minimal advertisement on the outside. We had to ask locals since we kept walking by it! Perfect place; exceptional staff, exceptional rooms.
