Travelled with my 8yo son. Booked 4 nights. The first night we stayed in a room behind the reception desk. This room was extremely noisy, due to the activities even after midnight at reception, the doorbell ringing and the TV playing. Slept very bad, and would advice to not accept this room. The following 3 nights were quite okay, as... More

When I arrived at 23.20hrs, I was told they had sold my room & they were full & had no rooms available for me. The very rude man at reception refused to... More

Well located place near Plaza Catalunya. Modest, but clean and well kept. We were traveling with three kids, and had the cuad room, which was very nice with air con. Asked for an extra bed, could not get it, but we managed to squeeze the youngest with us. When leaving for the airport, receptionist convinced us to get a taxi... More

We took the Aerobus from the airport and got us to there in under 40 mins and it stops right outside the El Corte Ingles department store. Its very convenient. The hotel is on the first floor of a...

We stayed here for the Easter weekend. Room was small and basic. However it had free air conditioning, wifi and tea and coffee making facilities. It was also very clean. I would stay here again, for the price paid it was a bargain. The staff were also friendly.

Great location and very friendly staff, as I had travelled on my own it was ideal. Use of a computer is available at one euro for 30 minutes which I found very useful. The subway system is very easy to use but I wouldn't buy day passes online, as trying to redeem the voucher proved impossible and given my Spanish... 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.
