I love Barcelona! Charming people, great wine and fine tapas. Take the altenative route by staying at Chic and Basic. Just a short walk away from La Ramblas, Port and beaches. The hotel has a funky style and vibe and is clean. The reception staff were friendly and it was one of the most efficient checkins I've experienced. There is... More

I recently stayed for a week with my partner and the hotel was perfectly located to explore the city. It's just off Las Ramblas, close to the harbour, with a metro station on the door step. The hotel is cute and quirky and always spotlessly clean and I always found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We didn't... More

We as a family stayed just one night in this hotel due to unexpected extension of our stay in Barcelona. The lobby is cool with the little green car, old suitcases used as a decor and nice lighting. The location is superb: a minute to Ramblas and metro, with the seaside, Columbus Monument and Gothic Quarter across the street. Easy... More

This hotel was a big surprise. I booked the room (through Venere.com) in a hurry when I noticed that rooms in downtown Barcelona hotels were running out because of the Champions League final which was played during the same weekend. Don´t get fooled by the hotels websites´ charming picture of a small green car in the lobby. The whole atmosphere... More

Hotel was located close to the port and beginning of Las Ramblas. Clean property but staff was somewhat overwhelmed during busy times. If you are in your 30's to 50's and want a location just as trendy but within a typical Spanish neighborhood with a good feel and a few more blocks from the over touristy Las Ramblas, try the...

Lovely experience at this hotel for 3 days visit in Barcelona with 2 adults and 2 teenagers . The original booking online did not get through so I phoned directly the reception and my problem was sorted immediately although the hotel did take the whole amount due instead of swiping my credit card details. Staff were efficient and pleasant throughout... 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.
