Second stay here, nothing to add. Exactly as described, breakfast, wifi, location, all great. Would definitely recommend. Yes room is small, not a great view out the back, but there's Barcelona outside, how long will you spend in the room?

Hotel Curious is small in scale and GREAT in service, attitude, and amenities. Thoughtfully providing a guide with restaurant recommendations (that we agreed with). Comfortable beds, good hot showers, good breakfasts. Great location. We were very pleased and would love to stay again.

Loved this hotel! Being from America hotel rooms in Europe can be a bit crammed. This hotel room was very efficient with the space. It was not a huge room but was able to fit 2 backpacks and 2 humans comfortably. The bathroom was nice and the shower was spacious enough to shave in! The staff was more than helpful.... More

We stayed for a week in late June 2014. Located just off LaRambas near the market, gothic centre and metro stations this affordable hotel offers the perfect base for seeing the sites of Barcelona. Very very quiet at night in the rear of the hotel which is perfect to get a good sleep. Staff excellent and the continental breakfast ideal... More

We walked everywhere in barcelona thanks to this hotel. Just off of las ramblas we could stay out enjoying the shops and bars. The room has some small updates to give it a more modern look an the bathroom was clean. A basic room that worked well for a 2 night stay. Breakfast in the morning is always convenient and... More

Dear Guest, Many thanks for your nice words about our little boutique hotel in Barcelona! As you said, we're next to Las Ramblas, but our neighborhood is called Raval, on the right side of Las Ramblas. In front of us, the Gothic Quarter. Breakfast is very complete: eggs, different kinds of bread, jam, butter, chocolate, cured ham, cheese, fresh chopped... More
