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

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 de 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.
