The Silken Ramblas is shown as a 4 star rated hotel which I'd disagree with. It is in a good location and the rooms were clean but very tired looking and although the bed was huge it was uncomfortable. The room was cleaned everyday and the facilities in the rooms were adequate. As the location of the hotel was very... More

Barcelona : what a city, what an experience. Silken ramblas is located very close to Barcelona's most happening Ramblas street. The location of the place is fantastic - walking from 2 metro stations, walking distance from the beach & marina, and shopping center. The staff is cordial. The service is very good - I had asked for blanket at 3... More

This was my first visit to this hotel. It's a good location and has a fairly modern and clean looking reception. The room was ok, but the beds were a little makeshift, didn't feel very solid or comfortable. The decor was ok but a little tired, panels marked or chipped, door frame trims adrift. The air conditioning didn't work, apparently... More

We found this Hotel to be a great choice for a short break in Barcelona. It is a stone's throw from Las Ramblas and surrounded by excellent bars and restaurants. The rooms were clean and comfortable, bathroom with bath/shower, TV, coffee/tea making facility. We asked for quiet rooms on 3rd and 4th Floor and with the windows shut there was... More

I visited Barcelona with a friend to see the opera at the Liceu which was arranged by a specialist tour operator. We read some of the reviews with dread and nearly cancelled our stay but decided to go ahead and make a decision upon arrival. First, the location was brilliant in a small street off The Ramblas. That meant that... More

Let me start with the one good thing this hotel has to offer: the location! It is good, close to the Rambla, but enough "off" to not be too touristy. Unfortunately, location is not enough. The first night of four I was awoken by something crawling on my leg and found a brown-black bug happily walking around on the bed.... 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.
