Reservation information for the Hotel Nouvel Barcelona
There is no denying that the façade of the hotel Nouvel Barcelona, and the lobby is historically stunning, so I felt a little let down at the interior of the hotel. However it is not without charm, the hotel was packed when I went to visit, probably due to its central location just off Las Ramblas on a popular shopping street.

Hotel Facilities

The hotel Nouvel Barcelona does not have many facilities like a pool or a sun terrace, the size of the old building perhaps does not permit them. However there is an attached restaurant called la Lluna which has recently been restored and renovated and serves international cuisine. There is also a comfortable lounge area in the lobby.

Business Facilities

Hotel Nouvel Barcelona has no business facilities, it is therefore suited for tourist visitors.

Rooms at the Hotel Nouvel Barcelona

There are 78 rooms all have a bathroom, air-conditioning, satellite TV, a direct phone line and a few have a mini-bar and a safe. Some of the rooms have small balconies overlooking the bustling street below.

Hotel Location and facilities

It is the location of the Hotel Nouvel Barcelona that is its main advantage point. It is a 2 minute walk to Las Ramblas where you can enjoy the street performers on Barcelona's most famous road. The street on which the hotel is on is narrow and beautiful because it's part of the historic Gothic Quarter and thus the buildings are all old. The street also has some tempting bakeries and cafes, as well as little shops in which to browse. Head in the opposite direction to Las Ramblas and you are heading into the Gothic quarter, the cathedral is a short walk away. However before you get to the cathedral you will find yourself on one of Barcelona's best shopping streets, Avenida Portal de L'Angel. The nearest metro stop is Plaça Catalunya, 5 minutes away, but when everything you want to see is so close I don't suppose the metro is important. There are several cash points and pharmacies nearby on Las Ramblas, as well as a large supermarket called Carrefour Express which is directly opposite as you enter from the hotel's street onto Las Ramblas. Also Corte Inglés which is department store, is just at the end of the street.

How to travel from the airport to the hotel

How to arrange your transport from Barcelona Airport in advance of your trip.

You can either arrange a private transfer or minibus shared transfer.

Private Transfer A private transfer is dedicated for you and your party only. The driver will be waiting at your arrivals gate holding a sign with your name on it. Your driver will assist you with your luggage to your own private vehicle and you will be driven directly to your hotel.

Minibus Transfer The shared minibus transfer option is cheaper than the private transfer. Unlike a private transfer you would need to make your way to a dedicated meeting point and the vehicle may be shared with other passengers. You will be taken to your hotel however there may be some stops for other passengers along the way.
