Fantastic staff, helpful and friendly with great recommendations. Hotel is in a great central location. Easy walking distance to get tour buses, walk to the marina and its a minute away from the La Ramblas with all the shops, restaurants and the market.

This is a cute little hotel that was fairly clean. The road that it is on seems sketchy but isn't bad. Problem is that their air conditioning is awful. I thought it was just the room and had them move me but the other room was the same. If you can't handle sweating while you sleep this is not the... More

A friend recommended this hotel to us as being central, economical, clean and quiet. All the things we wanted in a hotel! We stayed for 4 nights in late June, so it was certainly nearing the height of tourist season, and this hotel is located just a block from the Ramblas. It's tucked away down a side street and the...

This was a great hotel for the price. No frills, not luxurious, but it was clean. We stayed here with our three kids. It was the only place that even accommodated the 5 of us that I could find in Barcelona. All we wanted was a clean place to sleep and it delivered. The rooms and bathroom were clean. The... More

Close to everything in Barcelona, walking 40 mins to Sagrada Familia, nice continental breakfast, cleanest hotel ever, small and basic but spotless. Great staff and will store bags, easy access to public transport. But taxis super cheap.

We stayed 1 night prior to a cruise from Barcelona, this was our second visit to the hotel and we were not disappointed. We took a taxi from the airport because of the amount of luggage, it would be an easy transfer by bus or train with only one case, the taxi fare was about e30. The hotel is less... More

We have not stayed in any other hotels in Barcelona so we can't compare, but we found this terrific little hotel pretty much as described by other TripAdvisor reviewers - it was great for us. We stayed four nights. The front desk staff were all helpful; we dealt mostly with Matteo who worked days and was unfailingly polite, friendly and... More

Just returned from a 6 night stay at Hotel Curious.

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
