Private palazzi


Side-street sanctuary

Formed from two palaces in Barcelona’s Barri Gòtic, Hotel Neri’s architecture spans several centuries (half dates all the way back to the 1100s). The narrow mediaeval streets of the Gothic Quarter are right outside, as is arty La Ribera and the equally gothic cathedral. There’s a rooftop with a bar and a pool, a terrace that sprawls out onto Sant Felip Neri Square down below and a restaurant so good, you almost won’t need to venture out to the buzzy barrio’s many bars and tapas joints (but you really should).

The palazzi may inspire clothing that edges on extra.

Hotel Neri
Sant Sever, 5

Hotel Neri is in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, close to the cathedral and only a brief ramble from Las Ramblas.


Barcelona’s El Prat airport is a 40-minute drive away. Hotel transfers can be arranged for around €100 each way.


Services from all over Spain call in at Estació de Sants station, 20 minutes away by car. Transfers arranged by the hotel cost upwards of €60.


The Gothic Quarter’s narrow streets are pedestrianised, but the hotel can send a valet to meet you at a nearby car park to help with heavy luggage.

Worth getting out of bed for

The Barri Gòtic location means you’ll be close to the cathedral and all the bars and restaurants this cool quarter has to offer. Museums nearby include homages to both Picasso and Joan Miró. It’s also close to La Boqueria market, just off Las Ramblas; and for great views and multi-coloured mosaics, don’t miss Gaudí’s modernist masterpiece Park Güell. 

Local restaurants

A Barcelona institution since all the way back in 1835, Los Caracoles may have been named after its snail signature dish, but there’s a lot more on the menu today, including Iberian ham, firewood-roasted chicken and lobster paellas. Another historic backdrop awaits amid the lofty ceilings, brick walls and wooden beams at El Pintor. Or for a little slice of hipster-heaven Hackney in the middle of Barcelona, head to Caravelle, a 10-minute walk away from Hotel Neri, for brunches and house-brewed beers.

Local bars

Barri Gòtic is one of Barcelona’s buzziest neighbourhoods, so you won’t go thirsty – nearby drinking dens include Bar Cañete and Bar del Pla.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this historic hotel in Spain and unpacked their bikinis and beach towels, a full account of their city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Hotel Neri in Barcelona…

If you’ve ever asked the question, ‘Why have one castle when two will do?’, Hotel Neri is the regal Barcelona residence for you. Set across two palatial pads in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, it’s Barcelona’s best-kept secret. The unassuming side-street setting is close to the cathedral and the barrio’s buzziest bars and restaurants, but you’ll be secluded a little way from it all – the neighbourhood’s liveliest nightlife is right outside, but you’d never know it from your private palace. 

The hotel’s blueprint may include a 12th-century palace (plus an 18th-century one), but its interiors are modern, with colourful carpets and curtains, whole sheets of glass, cream sofas to steer clear of any sangria and even a saltwater pool up on the rooftop terrace. The decor also stars gilded mirrors on stone walls, ornate metalwork and lots of velvet and silks. Another of the city’s oldest areas La Ribera is also nearby, with many of Barcelona’s best bits within walking distance – with the ultimate address in the city yours to come home to.
