Hotel Neri Relais & ChâteauxLocated next to the picturesque Sant Felip Neri Square in the atmospheric Gothic Quarter, the Hotel Neri Relais & Châteaux comprises two historic mansions, one dating to the 12th century. The modernist aspirations of the hotel are immediately clear, though, from the front entrance’s elegant combination of glass and metalwork to the stone walls of the lobby. Rooms are crisp and subtly decorated in grays and greens offset by the wooden floors, and they're filled with high-tech features such as satellite TVs and Bluetooth speakers as well as desks. Bathrooms feature natural stone and rain showers, and most rooms look out onto the Gothic Quarter’s cobbled streets. Elsewhere in the hotel is a romantic restaurant with 12th-century inspiration and a roof terrace complete with hammocks and a beer-and-wine bar.
