Hotel Rec Barcelona is located in the neighborhood known as Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i la Ribera, one of the city’s most historic areas, abutting the famous Raval, Gothic, and Barceloneta, to make up the whole of la Ciutat Vella (the Old City).
This fabulous location puts the hotel just steps away from some of Barcelona’s most emblematic sights, like the Parc de la Ciutadella, the Arco de Triumfo, Plaza Catalunya, and the seaside Barceloneta, as well as cultural landmarks such as the Cathedral, the Picasso Museum, and the Santa Maria del Bar Basilica.
Its proximity to the Born, one of the city’s most picturesque neighborhoods, also means the hotel is just seconds from the hottest venues for nightlife and cultural entertainment.
