Mercer Hoteles started out in 2005 with the opening of the Mercer House Bòria BCN. It is set in an 18th century mansion and hosts 11 luxury tourist apartments in el Born, one of Barcelona’s most fashionable districts. Four years later, the Mercer Casa Torner i Güell was unveiled, a hotel in a Catalan Art Nouveau building with 16 rooms in the centre of Vilafranca del Penedès (Barcelona), the leading Catalan wine-making region.
In 2012, we opened our first 5*GL establishment in Barcelona. In the heart of the city’s Gothic Quarter, the chain’s flagship is in a medieval mansion on part of Roman Barcino’s city wall. Featuring 28 rooms in a listed building, Mercer Barcelona was remodelled by renowned architect Rafael Moneo, winner of the Prince of Asturias Award for the Arts and the Pritzker Prize, often referred to as the Nobel Prize of architecture.
In 2016, Seville was the setting chosen for a new venture. The remodelling of the former Casa Palacio Castelar, a 19th century middle-class mansion in the historic El Arenal district, was commissioned from Cruz y Ortiz Arquitectos, the firm in charge of the refurbishment of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and other iconic projects. The Mercer Sevilla is an innovative 5*GL hotel with 12 exclusive rooms.
In 2018, Mercer Hoteles kicked off an ambitious expansion plan with the addition of two luxury hospitality flagships. The first was the EME Catedral 5* (December 2018), a luxury hotel in one of the finest sites in Seville, opposite the Cathedral and the Giralda. A historical building dating from the 16th century and originally made up of 14 traditional Andalusian houses, its remodelling was directed by Spanish architect Juan Pedro Donaire and it is now a contemporary hotel featuring 60 rooms. Then secondly, along came the Torre del Remei 5*GL in March 2020, a luxury hospitality icon in la Cerdanya. This Catalan Art Nouveau mansion dates from 1910 and has been recently remodelled by Mercer Hoteles. It features 24 rooms encircled by an impressive garden and affords relaxing views over the Catalan Pyrenees.
The hotel chain’s expansion plan is now moving forward with the forthcoming opening of new luxury establishments in towns in Spain including San Sebastián, Cordoba and Alella (Barcelona).
Guided by renowned Spanish chefs, Mercer Hoteles is reaffirming its commitment to quality signature cuisine which embodies respect for traditional recipes and local produce while also adopting a contemporary vision and an innovative approach.
