Small hotel in a great location. Very close to La Rambla and the metro. Very friendly, helpful and efficient staff, who all spoke English well. The rooms are minimalist but perfectly adequate, and fair value for the price. Excellent shower and good wifi too.

We were here in sept 2014. First of all this place is hard to find. It is tucked away in the pedestrian streets and there are no signs that stick out. There is a sign above the door and on the door but it is not obvious. I walked past it a few times. The front desk people are very... More

We rented 2 rooms in this hotel last winter while renovations were in full swing. I was a little apprehensive about the renovations but I should not have been. Everything was great. I liked the hotel so much that little things like the hot water not working and the door locks not working right was quickly overlooked because everything else... More

Thank you very much for your feedback. I am happy to hear that even that the hotel was not finished 100% you enjoyed your stay. It is very hard to finish a work where you put so many efforts and have to go through the "leed certification" expectations. Very high ones. We are getting to the end and would like... More

Hostal Grau is in El Raval by a pedestrian corner between Les Rambles and the University — only two blocks from Plaça de Catalunya. El Raval is nowadays comfortable, bustling, and secure. My 4th-floor room looked over the street, and it was quiet, modern, immaculate, large, and comfortable: a dreamy king-sized bed and a large, hot shower. The Wi-Fi proved... More

We loved this hotel, it was spotlessly clean and cosy, the decor was cool and the bed was amazing, so comfortable it induced many the day-time nap! The staff were lovely and friendly and the location was perfect. It's so close to the hustle and bustle but still tucked away from the noise. We will definitely be coming back here!

This hotel was perfect for our family's trip to Barcelona. It was near many of the sites we wanted to visit -- most walking distance, others an easy metro ride from either the Plaza Catalunya or Universitat stations -- and it was on a charming side street (quiet). There were nice restaurants and cafes nearby, as well as little markets.... 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.
