The hotel is relatively low cost for Barcelona town centre, however a local informed us to keep an eye on our possessions and walking around it is obviously not the best area in town. That said there are some excellent restaurants within easy walking distance (go see the Ramblas but eat elsewhere). The town is making efforts to pull the... More

We booked this hotel as it has easy access to Rambla and the Old City without the higher cost or noise associated with properties in those areas. Local tour operators did not consider this hotel to be in a good area but we never had a problem despite walking everywhere including past midnight. The rooms had everything we needed. It... More

We booked the hotel because it was close to the city center and because of the discount offered. It was freezing cold there when we arrived. We thought that our 4-year old son would catch a cold right away (and so he did). The personel of the hotel told us that they had some problems with the heating system and... More

Stupidly thought iPads work everywhere (beginner) so didn't download a map of the Hotel. Flew in from Perth via Amsterdam, bus from the airport to main square and then had to ask many folk for directions on foot, but on arrival it was superb and a haven! Clean, bright, welcoming, lovely helpful staff with English. Room was comfortable and afforded... More

This is a lovely hotel, clean and staff are friendly. Good location to see everything we wanted to see. Looks a bit of a rough area but we didn't actually see any trouble. We had a room with a balcony which was great. Bathroom well equipped and spotless. I would stay here again. Lots of bars on the square outside... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Was not so sure about the location at first as we took the bus from the airport but in the end we just figured as much to stay off the side streets. Especially at night! Friendly staff, elevator, fast wifi, ac that works and very clean! We did not eat here. Beds were a bit... More

We said here one night prior to sail on a 12-night cruise. The hotel was great and the service fantastic. It was a group of 40 people and they handle us with care and patience. The rooms are a nice size. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was also updated and modern. Our stay included breakfast... More

Helpful and well mannered hotel staff (we red about others' negtive comments on this, but did not come across with anything of the sort). 3. Breakfast: freshest, widest variety and best quality food amnogst the 3 or 4 hotels of similar stars... More

Even though it is not on the Barcelona ramblas it is on the RAVAL ramblas which is nicer and got places to sit and eat or take tapas. Personnel was extremely helpful with personal requests. Rooms ample and very quiet.

If you are after a reasonably priced hotel within a short walking distance to la Rambla then try Abba Rambla. This hotel is very clean and smart and the staff are very friendly. The rooms are air conditioned and the free wifi works well within them. Around the hotel there are a few bars and restaurants but within a few... 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.
