Review Hotel Nouvel Barcelona

Page Content

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 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 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.
