Perfect location a short walk from the Rambla (2 min) and the port (5 min walk), but is tucked away on a side street, so it's quiet. There is the possibility to use a small garage if you arrive by car. Well connected, Drassenes metro stop is very close. Our room was very spacious (sixth floor), with a kitchenette to... More

I like this hotel a lot. We've stayed here for a short trip to Barcelona and we really enjoyed our stay. It's kind of different from other hotels because of its specific interiour but this it what it makes it special. The staff was pretty friendly. Can't say anything about the food because we always had food whilst in the... More

I wanted a pool, and looked long and hard for a hotel that also had a pool but was in a good area. I thought I found it but it turned out to be a pool table. Not what I expected but the hotel was lovely and in a terrific location. It was a simple room but all that you... More

Friendly staff who went above and beyond to help. Clean and comfortable rooms that included the amenities we needed (inc. an in-room safe, kitchenette etc.) Fantastic location. We were able to safely walk to bars and nightclubs in the evening and enjoy a range of nearby restaurants and shops during the day. I personally felt very safe in the area... More

It`s just 3 minutes from La Ramblas, and a nice walk to Barcelonetta. I loved the reception-area, with an old Fiat inside. Our room was a large family-room. On the negative sides: We did not get a room with balcony (we had a wish about this... but we did not get any promise). There was very little place to store... More

Hotel décor with its themed doors and posters is quite unusual. I especially liked the old fiat in the reception area We had a broken shower which took a couple of hours to resolve (eventually by changing our room) The rooms had balconies, but the views were un-inspiring

This trendy, cute hotel is in a great location to visit El Born, El Ravel, and the Gothic quarter. It's very basic, so bring shampoo and conditioner. I enjoyed my stay. Try the lunch of the day at La Monroe nearby. They also give you a device so you have wifi anywhere in the city! Very convenient!

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

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.
