Had a lovely weekend break staying here. Hotel staff are fantastic, friendly and helpful! The hotel is in the center of things with lots to do! Breakfast was extra- buffet type. We popped to the wild rover pub two minutes away for €9 full Irish. Overall for the price I cannot speak highly enough of the cleanliness and the comfort... More

We stayed for 4 nights , the hotel staff were friendly and so helpful ,we would recommend for location as only two minute walk from ramblas which was perfect for restraunts and night life,the breakfast was poor value and we would recommend going elsewhere unless the toaster was now working !!

if you want a cheap and clean and stylish hotel, just in the middle of barcelona, you can stay at chic and basic ramblas. 1 minute to ramblas, 45 seconds to metro. All stuff members are very kind, helpfull and with a smiling face. and hotel has a very fast wifi connection.

Great reception area - photo opportunities! Bring yer t-bags, there are kettles! The not so good stuff:... More

Was treated to this hotel as a surprise birthday short break and found it very nice. Decor is very nice and the 60s photos on the doors and in the rooms were very fun and interesting to look at. Location is fantastic, just 5 minutes walk max to Drassanes metro station, same to the southern end of the Ramblas and... More

Stayed at this lovely small hotel recently with my four sisters. We were looking for somewhere nice & safe, but cheap enough. It is situated just off Las Ramblas in Barcelona and it was a genuinely lovely find. The staff were so nice and the hotel itself was clean with quirky touches throughout. Would definitely recommend it to all people... 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.
