The Meson Castilla is ideally placed for access to the Rambla and the Gothic Quarter and there are bars and restaurants even closer. The metro at Universitat is only 3/4 minutes away and Catalunya Square less than ten. Rooms are small but clean and the breakfast more than adequate. Staff helpful and with good English. Overall good value and with... More

Internet is very slow, almost not available. Cleaning not so good but after the tips things goes better :) I had no window in my room. Location of hotel is really nice, right in city center. Personnel is friendly.

Excellent. Bit different from the everyday - interesting history/origin. Great value. Good room/bathroom - very clean. Really helpful staff. Great situation - so close to Ramblas and Placa Cataluna. Good bars and bakeries close by.

Excellent. Very stylish decoration, excellent friendly staff, a very good food. The room was cleaned daily and very accurately. The only week point -- the size of the room (very small, although the bathroom is normal and very clean), and not a very comfortable bed. But the environment, location and food are so good, that we really recommend to stay... More

The room was small but correct, and compared to mys sister's room, I had the chance of a revamped bathroom. The walls are very thin, so that your comfort at night and morning depends on the good behaviour of your neighboors. The hotel is old, with some character compared to all the impersonal ones that you find everywhere. The location... More

A super hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Within easy walking access of most museums, galleries and attractions. The traditional Catalonian style furniture a pleasant change from modern chain hotels. Very comfy beds and super continental style breakfasts with excellent coffee. Bathroom facilities were a little tight but OK, and it would have been good to have coffee/tea making... More

The hotel is located near the Ramblas, in a very lively neighborhood. Nice bar on the corner, close to the Placa de Cataluña. Lot's of nice little bars and shops. The hotel is old but charming. Beds were good.The buffet breakfast is fine. Only no fresh orange juice and machine coffee. Other than that, fine. We had a room on... 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.
