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. We had a balcony, but view was only of some very close apartments. This was fine as we... More

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.

We stayed at the hotel Curious in Barcelona while traveling through Spain in October. The rooms are very small but cosy, clean and efficient. The included breakfast was very good with lots of choices. The hotel is just a few steps away from Las Ramblas, the place to be in Barcelona. We definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there...

Not super posh, but comfortable, really clean and a great, helpful staff. The rooms are fine, comfortable. But the best thing about this place is the location. One block from Las Ramblas, around the corner from the market, yet relatively quiet at night. Breakfast is included and the price is reasonable. I recommend this boutique hotel to anyone visiting wonderful... More

We took the airport bus to Plaza Catalunya and walked to the hotel, it was very easy to find and only took around 10 mins. We got the twin room we'd booked and on the highest (4th) floor as requested. The room was modern, spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean. Loved the local theme to the room, a great idea.

My partner and I stayed here for a long weekend to explore Barcelona. It is a fantastic place to stay. The room was clean and tidy and very adequate (although being advertised as an economy room we found it perfect size). The staff are lovely and so helpful. The breakfast is an added bonus. I would highly recommend and it... 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.
