For a one star hotel you receive a five star reception. Your experience will start before you even arrive as the staff will contact you to give you advice beforehand and a nice guide that the staff have put together of things to do around the city. The rooms are small and you can hear noise from other guests, if... More

Hotel Curious, an enigmatic name for a high quality, low cost, friendly, small hotel in the very heart of Barcelona, just yards from La Rambla and the Boqueria market. We were looking for a budget winter break in Barcelona and we couldn't have found a better hotel. It was easy to travel from the airport and we took the budget... More

We really enjoyed our staying in Curious hotel. The staff was more than friendly and patient given our 1 year and a half son who had a lot of energy during the time. The room wasn't too big but comfortable and clean. The breakfast was above our expectations: various type of food, enough for everybody. The location is more than... More

It's very close to Las Ramblas, a wonderful street where it's possible to find many kinds of restaurants and attractions. Since the first day the staff were very kind and friendly. It's possible to use the metro Liceu, where you can arrive after 3 minutes walking. Great experience!

I come to the hotel every time, when I´m in barcelona. It´s basic and very nice. Single rooms are a bit to small, so double suit very well. They are friendly there and it´s feel a bit familiar. Bed is perfect plus a plain design of the room. All what you need to have a good time.

Stayed at Hotel Curious on a number of occasions and don't anticipate staying anywhere else whilst in Barcelona. The location is excellent, the service from staff is excellent and nothing seems to be a problem. The rooms are basic with no drawer space and limited hanging space. Breakfast is basic but adequate and is included in the price. Don't expect... More

It took me a few days to make a decision where to stay especially if the time spend in the city was an issue. We decided to choose Hotel Curious for the location, breakfast, price and, I have to say, a room decor. The decision didn't fail us, and now I can add "service" to the list. We arrived with... More

Perfect location, just off Las Ramblas. I booked direct from the hotel website. A few days before our trip I received an email with suggestions of places to visit and recommendations of places to eat together with a weather forecast and handy phrases in English, Spanish and Catalan.

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.
