I stayed here with a friend a week ago. I had read all the great reviews and it didn't disappoint! The hotel is centrally located just off the la ramblas. Easy bus ride to the beach, close to the underground and the main square where the buses to the airport leave/arrive to. I stayed in a twin room. The room... More

I stayed with my partner at Hotel Curious for approximately 4 days. We found our stay to be seamless and enjoyable. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice balcony. The location was easy to find and in a very, very convenient (and safe) street directly off La Rambla (main tourist area). The breakfast was adequate. The value for... More

Great location just steps away from La Rambla, and centrally located for everything that my wife and I did during our stay in Barcelona. We opted for the economy room since we don't spend much time awake in the hotel. It's about as small as a room with a queen bed can possibly be. We managed okay for two days/nights,... More

Stayed here as a family of 5 for 3 nights at the start of July, prior to cruising out of Barcelona. I spent a long time researching hotels before deciding on this small hotel.

I've never written reviews before. But this time, after staying in Curious (2 nights in July 2014), I decided to help other people in choosing the right hotel. I booked Curious based on other people good reviews and they happened to be very true. I’m very satisfied with this hotel. The room is small but clean and has everything you... More

The Trip Advisor reviews helped me pick this hotel and they did not let me down. My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel and I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Barcelona.

I stayed at Hotel curious in a room I booked as a single from 7/4/14 to 7/6/14 before a cruise. I knew I'd be out and about for most of the day so my requirements were a central location, close to the metro, and not a lot of cash. Hotel Curious met all of those and I was very happy... More

I don't have any major complaints except I could hear a man snoring in the next room. I still think this hotel is worth a try. It's good value and great location. Clean room. Free Breakfast.
