Hotel Curious is a lovely hotel right in the center of Barcelona. You can reach all the most imporant spots by foot, but also public transport is right around the corner. The rooms are small, but clean and modern. You will find everything you need. In case you're missing anything, the friendly staff is always keen to help. The only... More

A central, modern and spotlessly clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed 3 nights in a twin room and I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Barcelona. I will be recommending Hotel Curious to friends and family.

This is a cool, quirky hotel, perfect for a short stay in Barcelona. I booked it at a reasonable price for an Easter break. Travelling by myself, I opted for one of the more snug single rooms which was clean, practical and quirky. The single rooms are next to the lift shaft and on the inside of the building which...

Small details make all the difference, and this hotel won me over before I'd even arrived when they sent me an email containing their staff's own guide to Barcelona, plus useful info such as the weather forecast - so easy to do, yet few hotels go to this kind of effort in my experience. They were also keen, when we... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It was spotlessly clean, simple, modern facilities. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The position was excellent for exploring the city and the area felt safe and was quiet at night.

In a city where there are so many accomodation possibilities why choose Hotel Curious? That is the question the following comments attempt to answer. This was my 9th visit to the city and my 9th different hotel so if I visited again would I break the pattern and stay somewhere for a 2nd time? It is to Hotel Curious's credit... More

This very reasonably priced hotel was worth every penny. The location was excellent - close to Metro, city centre bars, restaurants and the market. The staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel was immaculately clean and the wifi was excellent, Breakfast was very good. A good selection and nice and fresh. Taxi fare from airport about 30 euros but then... More

I have just arrived back in Birmingham and felt I needed to immediately comment on trip advisor about this hotel. I booked Hotel Curious based on trip advisor reviews, but was very concerned to see it was a 1 star rated hotel after I had booked. However, I definitely had no reason to be concerned it is a great hotel,... More

Had a really good stay here, great location, convenient for getting around Barcelona. The hotel, and its rooms, are pretty compact but clean and modern and have all the basics. Breakfast had all you needed and as much as you wanted. The staff were all friendly and helpful. One tip, take your own shampoo, the stuff supplied is horrible! I... More

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.
