Recently stayed in the hotel for three nights. It is basically a cylinder, covered in chain mail, which looks very futuristic in contrast to it's immediate surroundings. Hotel is very dark inside (a design thing) but very modern and quirky. Fluorescent pink and lime green are the accent colours to white and black. All the staff were very friendly and... More

I'm sure this is the nicest hotel in what is a slightly shady area. Don't bother with the breakfast it's pretty poor rather try Caravelle which is less than 5 min walk. The rooms are really well laid out with funky decor, comfy bed and a great shower! 2 things which bugged me were when returning to the room there... More

We stayd for 6 nights with my girlfriend and enjoyed our stay at Barcelo Raval. The view from our 10th floor window was stunning, as was the view from the roof-top terrace. The location of the hotel was good (somewhat near to downtown and beach), however the Raval district is maybe not the best part of Barcelona. The bed was... More

I stayed here for 4 nights with my parents and little brother. Arriving at the hotel we were very impressed with the service and how modern the hotel was. They arranged for us to be on the 9th floor where there were stunning views over the city. The rooms were very spacious and again very modern, however more suited for... More

We are 80 year olds and enjoyed a 5 night stay at Barceló Raval Barcelona. Could not fault the hotel. Excellent location close to La Rambla and tourist buses. Did not dine at hotel but many eating places close by. The staff were very good friendly and efficient. Rooms were modern design and very comfortable with tea/ coffee and security... More

Not safe location at all! People asking to sell cocain in front of the hotel. The smell outside the hotel is garbage. Hotel to dark inside. Felt like a club and was not relaxing. The pool was a joke. The service of the staff not so good. Couldnt sleep at night, to noisy outside and you could hear the streets.... More

This hotel is a modern silver building that looks like it has landed from outer space into a traditional Spanish street. Rambla De Raval, the main street outside, looks nice on first glance but the various bars and restaurants are uninviting on closer inspection. Don't use the hotel door leading out from the bar / breakfast room area, you will... More

The hotel was nice, and the rooftop bar was spectacular to have, but our experience with two of the staff members in particular was above and beyond what we expected, and what we experienced for the rest of our trip.

We stayed here for 5 nights and were really happy with our stay. The views are jaw dropping from the top and sitting in the pool overlooking it was great. The hotel itself is very modern and has some quirky bits e.g room numbers lit up on the floor! As for the location, from reading reviews prior to staying it... More
