This hotel has it all!! We were greeted promptly and with friendly reservation specialists. After check-in, we went to the hotel bar at the top of the hotel and witnessed an outstanding 360 panoramic view of Barcelona. The pool (although small) is also located on the top floor. The room was very clean and very modern. The breakfast was equally... More

My wife and I stayed for one night - it was a little expensive for the size and amenities of the room, but it was a meticulously clean and modern room. 360 terrace view was a huge highlight, both day and night. You can see the whole city and get great pictures of the landmarks at a distance. Bed was... More

This is about the brunch, I didn't sleep at the hotel as I live in Barcelona. Space: nice designed lobby, comfortable with some sense of humour, kind of place where you would host a chic cocktail party. Helpful and nice staff. Food: Superb choice of warm and cold dishes,vegetables, fresh made benedict eggs, gazpacho, saumon, serrano ham, spanish omelett, choice... More

This is a nice hotel in what we thought was a great and central location. The information people at the airport spent some time telling us it was in a dangerous location but we didn't feel our safety or personal security was compromised at all. We were, though, careful. The hotel is fine and the staff helpful. Like all city... More

We visited Barcelona in May 2015 and stayed at the hotel for 4 nights along with the wife's 2 sister and partners to celebrate a 40th birthday. the hotel was superb great location close to the centre but quiet enough to relax and visit the local bars. Although set close to a Red light district this only added to the... More

The Barcelo Raval, Barcelona was great, the location is in the city, about 700m away from the main strip of La Rambla which was not a problem at all as the walk is lovely. The service at the hotel was great, although they really could have used some more staff, every time I went to reception there was quite a... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The room was extremely comfortable, spacious and clean. I loved the decor in the room and around the hotel itself. The rooftop terrace was very relaxing with panoramic views of Barcelona - many an evening could be spent there with drinks from the bar. The hotel restaurant as well is perfect with great, well...

Location is close to las ramblas and enough off the beaten track that it's not jam packed. I have read reviews about being dodgy at night and speaking for myself and friends that visited: you are in the middle of a city and will see all walks of life around. Don't be put off by this review as the location... More

We checked in here while on a work/pleasure vacation. This is a nice hotel, lobby is well maintained and very chic. The only thing would be a strong perfume smell is a little overwhelming. The rooms are well appointed, modern and simple. The sink area was a little small, showers ok, however, I did find the room (even on the... 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.
