Opened in September 2012, the Mercer Hotel Barcelona is an innovative boutique hotel 5*GL Monument set in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, nearby the Cathedral. It is a unique setting, where guests can meet exclusivity. Mercer occupies a collection of buildings with great architectural significance on Carrer Lledó, built on top of a section of the walls of Barcino, the ancient Roman city. It retains features from a variety of historical periods stretching from the 1st century AD
up to the 19th century, all of which have been restored not only to display but also to encourage a genuine feel for the history of Barcelona: An architectural proposal that surprises and captivates our guests. The renovation project was entrusted some years ago to Rafael Moneo, the prestigious architect who was distinguished with the Prince of Asturias Award in 2012. His work has enabled a valuable piece of architectural heritage to be rescued and then integrated with innovative contemporary architecture, thus gifting the city with a building that looks to the future from a standpoint of respect for its past. Mercer’s philosophy is based on the combination of the cultural heritage and the unique personality of our luxury hotel buildings, with the excellence of service exclusively focused on overcoming the highest expectations of our guests.
