My wife and I stayed in Hostal Grau during a recent trip to Barcelona. We visited this hotel a few years ago and returned primarily for the great customer service. The staff was outstanding during this visit too. We arrived early and the staff allowed us to register early and held our luggage while we visited local sights. We returned... More

Lovely large (Superior) room for a reasonable price, on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the little plaza out front. Everything was immaculate, with a very nice bathroom, hanging closet and safe. There was a desk and plenty of outlets for charging electronics. Best part was the friendly, charming and helpful staff. And the Bar Centric, located directly under... More

someone really thought through the design and materials. it was extremely comfortable and bright, and feels a lot less like a hotel and a lot more like the kind of apartment an expat might rent out for a few months. our room had an absolutely massive bed.

This little gem of a hotel fulfilled all our hopes for our long-awaited trip to barcelona. Ideally located to get to all the sites by foot or metro, it was clean, quiet and eco-conscious. The beds were fantastic, rivaling much higher end hotels. We got personal attention from the staff at this family run guest house, who even made cakes... More

The directions from the website were helpful in finding the location which was near but not on La Rambla. The lobby is nicely decorated and the overall impression is that they have taken their Eco theme to heart using recycled items in innovative ways. Check-in was efficient and we were directed to our room on the fourth floor. The elevator... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights in early September. Excellent location and handy to everything. There is a good feel of local neighborhood and yet only a block from La Rambla.

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.
