The location of this hotel is very good, it was only a few minutes walk to La Rambla so very central for eating, shopping, metro, beach and sighteeing generally. Unfortunattely, the room we had, had not been thoroughly cleaned after refurbishment. There were no shelves for clothes and only a very small wardrobe. The breakfast was sufficient but very basic,...

The room was boiling hot, supposedly air-conditioned when realistically, it was just blowing hot air around.The shower was IN the hotel room, facing the bed with a transparent shower curtain - no privacy at all. The toilet didn't flush properly. The paint was peeling off the headboard, the pillows were flat as pancakes. Scariest of all, there were loose feminine... More

If you're staying for one or two nights and you want something central but cheap then this hotel is for you. Earplugs is recommended. Staff is friendly but I'm not sure room security is the best. They charged 4 euros extra per night for the safe in the room. I would recommend it if you have valuables in the room.... More

Pros: location near the heart of town, rate/price, staff friendly. Room basic but clean, comfortable and good shower. Cons: no extra perks not a good place for small children, at night the courtyard outside the hotel seem to have a criminal element present. I did fell safe in the hotel but the night time activity in the courtyard was loud... More

I went to Barcelona at the end of June for 4 nights with two of my best friends (three 21 year old girls) and chose Hotel Barbara because it seemed like it had a good location mainly, and we'd be able to get home from clubs easily. This was so true! The clubs we mainly went to were on La... More

If you are travelling to Barcelona and you are NOT willing to sleep and rest but want to SCREAM and go crazy all night in your hotel room than this is the place for you. It was like staying in a kindergarten, no rules, uneducated guests on every floor, because it doesn't matter if you are on the 3rd floor... More

best location, just 2minutes from metro Liceu at La Rambla, Market, McDonald, KFC, Carrefour all behind a corner. You can go about 20-30minutes by walk to Pl.Espanya to get cheap airport bus No.46 there. I got mad when the receptionist asked my 16years old son to sign some paper, all in spanish. I was going to sign it for him... More

We stayed in the hotel Barbara for a couple of nights during Easter. The room was big enough with two separate beds (not ideal for a couple), which were quite comfortable. Also the receptionists were friendly. The room was clean. Big advantage of this hotel: it's only 5 minutes from Barri Gotique and Rambla. The downsides: a window to the... More

You get what you pay for. Great location and friendly staff..placed in the " red light district"? Only one offer during our stay and hardly a proposal. .no worries around that. Great hotel to a low price.

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.
