We spent a weekend at Hostal Centric, and would strongly recommend it. Excellent central location, professional service, clean and comfortable room, and fast Internet connection on the plus side. The only point not quite as good was the size of the room which was relatively small. It is firmly on the list of possible hotels for our next Barcelona stay.

The hotel is very modern, centrally located and close to many of Barcelona's amenities. Lots of restaurant (and affordable ones) around, a convenience store right next to it. The staff is really nice and helpful, the rooms are rather small but very clean and comfortable. We were at the back of the hotel and it was very silent.

Reception very welcoming , rooms very clean and modern , nice sheltered terrace to sit . Lots of cafes near by , not far from La Ramblas. Would definitely stay there again. Staff extremely helpful in guiding us to where to eat, they also have kettles, travel adapters if required

Stayed here with my family for several nights. The room was pretty spacious for three people, and the staff were very helpful. The design of the hotel was pretty basic, but comfortable. The location was also quite good.

This hotel although only a 2* I think only due to there not being a restaurant, this would be worthy of 4* the rooms are modern and clean, free WiFi and ensuite with tv and not far from the Metro, there are cafes and restaurants near by so not having a restaurant in the hotel is not a problem.

My friends and I stayed here for an event I organised in Barcelona. For its location in Barcelona and the quality of rooms - you get really great value for money. We had doubles, twin and triple rooms and they were all great - clean, good size & great showers. Down in the lobby there is a living room where... More

My only bad point for this hotel is that they use those horrible foam mattresses. So on that basis I would not go back. Otherwise very well run, good staff and nice and clean. The position is ideal, near enough for most things the city has to offer yet quiet enough to relax.

Convenient location between three metro stations, clean rooms, modern furniture. Staff was very helpful. You can leave luggage in the special room with individual lockers and keys, that you take with you. Excellent wi-fi connection.

The Centric is termed a Hostal as it is without catering I believe. As a frequent business traveller (on the company dime) I would gladly stay here if booked by my company. The location is excellent, with AirBus in the next street and a block north of the medieval Gothic Quarter. On this trip I was travelling inland, so stayed... 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.
