I liked this small hotel and I would stay here again. The location is great for sightseeing and close to Ramblas and La boqueria. We gave the hotel address to the a airport taxi which dropped us off one house wrong and we had a small scare before we found the hotel entrance. There is always someone in the reception... More

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. The hotel was minimalist but stylish and very clean. Buffet style self... More

I wasn't sure what to expect with a single-star rating but what a wonderful stay we had. The place is small, simple, not a lot of amenities but cozy. It's a great location, small alley way - just a few hundred feet from Las Ramblas, and everywhere else you want to walk. The staff made us feel welcome the minute... More

A one-star hotel with 5-star support. Free wifi, great local advice as to places to go and where to find things, free breakfast, and a great location. I will go back to this place. Much better than the other place I stayed, which cost 3x as much and not nearly as much fun.

Just off Las Ramblas in fantastic location, this little hotel is just what you need for a city break. Rooms are not spacious, but if your staying in Barcelona, what you doing hanging round in your room? Bed comfortable and bathroom clean.

in a fairly quiet street, but just off Las Ramblas, this is a clean, well organised and friendly hotel. It's very good value and just a few meters away from two good restaurants. Right on the edge of the barrio gothic with masses to see and close to placa Catalunya . You couldn't hope for a better location.

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.
