Nice hotel in very good location, easy to get from Airport and back to Airport. Also train station is close by. Room size is ok and great room service! Room is clean and had nothing to complain about. Cleaning ladies, I guess, were reading my mind and were not annoying me with small details, like if I left shampoo in... More

I would definitely go back there. Good location for getting around the city. Walkable to the Port (25 minutes) and... More

It's one of the best places I've stayed recently. Excellent service, great location, very comfortable, and the staff the friendliest and nicest you can find in Europe. Near the Plaza España, with easy access to all major attractions.

But the hotel is also nicely located to visit the center of Barcelona (depends on you walking ability of course..), to visit the Miro museum, actually to do everything... More

Short Version: our 2 night stay at the Lugano, was great. The staff was very friendly, the accommodations were very good, and the location was the best. Not too close to the hustle and bustle of the downtown, yet the subway station was only 2 blocks away. Long Version: we arrived from an early morning flight from Bilbao, and by... More

We travelled as a couple to Barcelona at the end of August. We stayed at the HCC Lugano and were pleasantly surprised. Very clean, and quite spacious and modern hotel for European standards. Staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Hotel is in a great area, walking distance to most tourist attractions. Glad to be away from the hustle and bustle... More

With just one night to spend in Barcelona we got the pick of the hotels. Handy to everything. It provided great accommodation. We had a short walk to get onto the Hop on Hop Off bus and this enabled us in a short time to see all the highlights of this wonderful city.

Well located just a short walk from Espanya metro station, one stop from Sants, where you get the train to/from the airport. Easy to get to from airport, just catch free bus outside the terminal which takes you to train station - short journey to Sants, the main station in Barcelona. We got a four day pass, pre-booked via internet... More

Very nice, conveniently located near Plaza de Espana. Very helpful, friendly, yet professional staff, was always ready to help. Tickets for "hop on/hop off" city tours could be purchased at the hotel's desk. Very nice " Breakfast buffet" served on premises. The shower's water pressure was great! It was an excellent experience!

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.
