If you value a good nights sleep, then this isn't the place for you. As other reviews mention, the rooms are very noisy, you can hear the busy streets outside until the small hours (3/4 am) and the occupants in the other rooms (especially the ones above, just even walking about). Other than that, the hostel is ideal in every... More

We booked a very spacious and clean family room in this gem of a hotel less than two blocks off the Rambla. It was outfitted with a small kitchenette so we were able to have breakfast in the room which was nice after two weeks in hotels. The staff was engaged and very eager to help meet any needs. There...

Pros: •Very friendly and extremely helpful staff •Freshly remodeled, eco-friendly and simple rooms that were very comfortable •Great café (Cafe Centric) adjacent to the hotel, but breakfast buffet was underwhelming given the 12 Euro price (venture out for 3 euro crossiant and café con leche instead) •Very convenient location to Las Ramblas and Placa de Catalunya, •Lots of great food...

Hostal Grau was one of the few options left when I booked for this years MWC congress in Barcelona but it turned out to be not a bad option at all.

Hostal Grau is a great little independent hotel nestled off of a side street just off of La Rambla and Catalunya Square. The smaller street makes the hotel quieter and offers several restaurants and smaller shops just a minute or two from the door on foot. The rooms were very spacious with very nicely appointed private bathroom accommodations. The breakfast... More

Great location and value. Big 'family room' worked great for our family of four (2 teenagers)...funky room layout but that just added to the charm for us. Very friendly and helpful staff at the front desk 24 hours. Also, some books say that there is no elevator but there is now!

Balconies overlook the street which is bustling but with the windows closed -and there is a very efficient and controllable air conditioning system- the rooms are very quiet.

We have just returned from a 4 day break with three friends. We have stayed at Hostal Grau before a few years ago and had no hesitation coming back. The location is great, so central yet also so peaceful down a wide street just a couple of minutes from the Ramblas. The staff on reception each day were very helpful.... More

Booked to stay here in September 2013. However, the hotel was not quite finished due to works being carried out. To their credit they are making great efforts to become the most sustainable hotel in Barcelona and this should really be applauded. The staff and Monica in particular made a big effort to find alternative accommodation. I can't thank her... More

We stayed at the Grau during a four day stay in Barcelona in July. Overall, the experience was positive, and the hotel is in a great location, with rooms that were being refurbished to meet a modern and stylish new standard. Unfortunately, the hotel was running way over schedule with the actual refurbishment, and the lobby and hallway on our... More
