The Neri is the perfect example of marrying a hotel with an historical building while still maintaining the charm and integrity of the structure. Thus the feeling of being at the heart of the Gothic quarter is ever present and the story of the uncovering of a Roman site under the hotel, complete with Phoenician ceramics is a proud tale recounted by the staff.
This Relais & Chateau member boasts just 22 rooms and yet houses a gastronomic restaurant famed for its avant garde Spanish cuisine. The roof top terrace is not unusual in Barcelona's many hotels but the Neri's take on an urban garden is truly special. Loungers and hammocks are strewn amongst the foliage and you can expect complete quiet as the Neri is located in a pedestrianised part of the old town.
The design for the rooms and communal spaces is playful and bright with modern art and furniture (the velvet knotted sofa designed by the Campana brother is something to behold) while the historic library is more rustic, with guide books aplenty to feed the imagination for a day of exploring.
All in all, the Neri is a real gem, perfect for a romantic getaway or city break.

When to go
Barcelona is a year-round destination. Many associate Barcelona with the summer sun, but August can be a poor choice – the city broils and swarms with tourists as the locals disappear to more salubrious climes. It is certainly better to come around mid-June or September. If beach time is not a priority, you can easily find sunny (if chilly) weather and fewer crowds in January and February. Rainfall is highest in autumn and winter. During September and into October the city often gets a wash down in cracking thunderstorms.
As Barcelona is downwind from the Pyrenees, cold snaps are always on the cards and the April–May period is particularly changeable. At its best May can be the most pleasant month of the year – clear and fresh.
September's Festes de la Mercè, a four-day festival celebrating Barcelona's co-patron saint, Nostra Senyora de la Mercè (Our Lady of Mercy) is a particularly good excuse to head to the city. This final burst of pre-winter madness features a swimming race across the harbor, a fun run, outstanding free concerts and a bewildering program of cultural events. Adding to the local color are all the ingredients of a major Catalan fiesta: castellers, sardanes (traditional Catalan folk dancing), parades of gegants and capgrossos (giants and big heads), and a huge correfoc (fire run). Events take place throughout much of the year, although there is more activity in the warmer months.
