3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The outstanding:location,cleanliness and staff. The good:breakfast. The need improvement:the hotel advertises itself as new.Not only it is not but it aged far from gracefully:cracked Ikea type furniture,scratched walls and room doors. The unpleasant:single rooms are the size of a closet/Barbie doll room.Double rooms are not better. The unacceptable:dampness throughout the hotel.

We spent 3 days mid September at the Hotel Curious. This was our second time there, and due to our excellent experience the first time, I didn't even look elsewhere. It was just as quiet and convenient. Staff are friendly and helpful, and a nice breakfast to start the day. What is not to like??

This little gem in the middle of Barcelona never ceases us to amaze us: * The reception staff (Mateo and Karin) are great, extremely helpful in recommending sights, things to do and where to eat. * The rooms are spacious, very clean and quiet. We had an outside room and we were surprised by the lack of street noise, given... More

Arrived mid-afternoon and front-desk (Alberto) checked us in. He was super friendly and gave us the rundown of what to see/do. I liked that he gave us an honest perspective on Barcelona, so we took his advice with much appreciation. Room (404) was a decent size with a queen sized bed. Located at the back of the hotel we had... More

Ok, let us break up my rating to be fair, so you can see how I got to my average total: 1. Staff: 5/5 - everybody I met, from reception to cleaning, was helpful and exceptionally friendly. 2. Location: 4/5 - it is really superbly located, literally 200m off La Ramblas. Only thing that would have given a 5 here,... More

Not a fancy or expensive hotel, but great location, very helpful staff, decent breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms. 2 min walk to La Rambla. Good restaurants in the area (go to Bar Lobo for great meal). Trip to the airport was about 20 euros. We will stay at Hotel Curious again.

We booked a one-night stay after reading the excellent reviews on trip advisor--& we were not disappointed. The staff was so helpful & friendly. We were able to check in early after our overnight flight from Chicago which was a pleasant surprise. We were given excellent info about exploring the city. Great breakfast. We were able to store our luggage... More

Hotel Curious was in an amazing location, situated just off La Ramblas - you couldn't get any better! The reception staff were the most welcoming, helpful and cheery staff I have ever encountered; no request was too much for them. Our room was fabulously decorated, spacious and we were lucky enough to have a balcony. Everything is modern and well-designed,... More
