We stayed 3 nights last December. We've been to Barcelona numerous times as we love the city, great time to visit with Christmas decorations and markets etc. We found this hotel to be very comfortable and got a good sleep in a twin room at the back of the hotel where it was quiet. The breakfast room was very pleasant... More

We enjoyed our recent stay at Hotel Curious. Its central location so close to Las Rambles is great. Beakfast is very good and reception staff most helpful. We were only there overnight on way to cruise and our room was small but well appointed. If we were to stay longer we would opt for larger room. Free wifi worked well... More

Although our room was very small, it was more than made up for by the wonderful service and thoughtful pre-arrival advice provided by the staff. I'd recommend this to anyone who is looking for 5 star service at an affordable price.

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.
