A clean and simply appointed hotel - perfect for our short visit to Barcelona! Our room faced out on to the street with a small balcony. Despite being so close to Las Ramblas, it was quiet and peaceful. The room had everything we needed and was cleaned daily. Our bathroom was modern and very clean with a good, strong, hot... More

If you are looking for a perfectly located, no frills hotel you will not do better than Hotel Curious. Firstly the location on a side street just off Las Ramblas is excellent. A 2 minute walk and your on the Las Ramblas and also close to the subway system. Although in the centre of the tourist area in the bedroom... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Hotel is just off Las Rambles and only a five minute walk to La Bouqeria (must see!) Room and bathroom were small but adequate. We even had a little terrace! Breakfast in the morning was decent. They offered pastries, bread, meats, cheeses, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, coffee, and juices. Staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

Given this a five rating, though of course they are not claiming to be a five star hotel. However, in delivering what they promise it is hard to imagine anything better. Perfect base for a few days (or longer) in Barcelona, just off Ramblas. Very clean and comfortable, staff all ecxellent and very helpful. Couldn't fault it, and when we... More
