Located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter and with just 28 rooms, the Mercer Hotel Barcelona is a unique establishment that has restored a heritage building of historical value to the city. The architectural restoration project was headed up by Rafael Moneo who managed to achieve a balance between the original recovered features and a new construction. The interior design of the bedrooms and the public areas, the work of Gastón & Daniela and the Mercer Hotels team, sought to set off the building’s historical features with the use of refined furniture in a contemporary design and modern materials.
The top terrace is designed with a vast selection of Atelier Vierkant planters and furniture. During the day, guests can take advantage of the pool or enjoy an aperitif in the sun. As evening falls, it opens to the public to offer a unique vantage point for enjoying a drink with views over the dome of the Santa María del Mar church and the Basilica of Sant Just y Pastor.
