Great location, just a couple of minutes walking, off Las Ramblas. Restaurants, bars and old district easily accessible. Pre booked parking was very reasonable nearby. (Much cheaper to pre-book though). Rooms pleasant, but nothing special. Hotel staff not terribly friendly and hotels in same area better value. Bar area had amazing carved fireplace with relaxed atmosphere.

This hotel is in a very good location, around 2 minutes walk to the Metro and Las Ramblas. The room was small, but beautifully decorated. The bedroom has a double bed with various pillows. The flat screen TV has lots of channels, although only new channels in English. The bathroom had a toilet and shower cubicle with glass dividers. The... More

We had a terrific stay here. The location couldn't be beat, the staff was very attentive, the room was well appointed and quiet (not an easy feat in bustling Barcelona), the breakfast choices were many, and the recent refurbishment of the hotel was top-notch, highlighting the original modernist details in the public spaces. Alas, there wasn't time on this visit... 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.
