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

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.

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.

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.
