I stayed here for 4 nights in April. The location is great, a few minutes walk to the rambla which is only good because you don't have all the notice coming from there. The hotel is clean and the standard rooms a small, only a bed and a bathroom. So if you have problems with small areas, chose a bigger... More

I stayed here for 9 nights in July. The rooms are decent and clean. The cleaning ladies are very nice people aswell. The breakfast was okay. The reception were helpful when asked. The downsides to this hotel is the wifi signal is very poor. If you want wifi you have to stay down in the lobby or get another hotel.... More

Basic room provide for our one night stay. The room was clean and tidy and of a reasonable size. Staff were helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and there was a good choice available. One downside was that we had money stolen from our case. Free wifi. Hotel is convenient for the Ramblas. Ok for a short stay but lock up your... More

The hotel is very well situated and it's clean, "ibis like..." if you stay at the queen bad, get ready to walk into the bad, the room was very small, no fridge and WiFi kept dropping on my room. First night my TV didn't work and staff didn't do much to resolve the problem and the A/C was weak. I... More

This is a good hotel if you are on a short trip to Barcelona, especially if you are visiting the first time. We stayed for 3 nights and had a double room. The room was small, but that didn't bother us, as we weren't really spending time in it, apart from the nights. The bed was rather small too -... More

This is a budget hotel with no services other than vending machines and wi-fi. On first impression the halls feel like a derelict hospital. The service desk was manned by two male individuals. One who seemed eager to help yet did not speak or comprehend much of anything, let alone English. The other, an old and grumpy man, bickered with... More

The hotel is just a short walk from everything that is wonderful in Barcelona. The bathroom was clean and modern. However, don't expect large rooms, this is an old converted building and a bit of a rabbit warren - one of the great things about travelling Europe is the living history. The beds weren't five star, and the floor is... More

This hotel is very nice & clean with big airy rooms. The bathroom is neat & clean like a typical business hotel. The location is the best part about this Hotel, it is right next to Les Rambles & the hub of all the good restaurants in the vicinity. One very good thing is that if you are a large... More

As mentioned in other reviews this is a noisy hotel and yes you can hear the front door closing every 5 minutes, people walking down the corridor and parties etc.. I asked to be moved to another room so I could get a good nights sleep but this was beside the lift which I had heard was loud also. On... 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.
