The Barcino (so named for the ancient Roman settlement that once comprised this part of the Gothic Quarter) is one of a group of hotels that markets itself mainly to the budget-conscious international traveler. The decor is slightly dated and the amenities are minimal. But the Barcino is family-friendly, is a good value, and is minutes' walk to anywhere in the Born-Ribera or the Gothic Quarter. The concierge will advise you on not-to-miss events in the nearby City Hall
or the Generalitat.
