I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, Hotel Rec was great! I would highly recommend that others stay here and would consider staying here again if I were to return! The rooms were comfortable and clean, staff was helpful, and the restaurant Fismuler was delicious!

It's fine offering nice extras but only if the basics are right. The Rec misses the mark in this respect. It's a well located, stylish, trendy, modern hotel with a great breakfast buffet on the roof terrace, free beer tasting and cocktail making evenings. However,...More

REC HOTEL BARCELONA a new way of experiencing Barcelona, exploring one of its oldest neighborhoods, La Ribera. Light, color, and simple open spaces the perfect atmosphere in which to connect and relax.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
