We stayed here for 3 nights and had a very comfortable stay. The hotel is in great location as you are very close to the city centre and walkable distance to some local attractions. The hotel is located 2 mins away from Universitat metro station which is served by the Aerobus service direct from the airport. It is about 10... More

Stayed at this hotel for three nights. The hotels is central, a ten minute walk from Placa Catalunya, the nearest metro stop is Universitat, which is next to the hotel. The hotel is very comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. There is a mini bar (fridge) in the room with tea and coffee making facilities. The room was very... More

The hotel is a few blocks from the Airport Bus terminal at Placa Catalunya, two metro stations and La Rambla. Just two doors away is the all-in-one Moritz cafe, restaurant and bar. It is also near the El Raval neighborhood with a number of museums, numerous small supermarkets and affordable eateries/cafes where you can get cheap coffee, baguettes and groceries.... More

I usually stay at this hotel when I go on business to Barcelona. Its location, just off the Plaça Universitat, makes it a perfect location for visiting the Ramblas, Plaça Catalunya and the Passeig de Gràcia, and the nightlife and restaurants of L'Eixample, while offering great value for money. There's a taxi rank just over the road, 100m to the... More

I stayed at this hotel for three nights while in Barcelona for a half marathon. The hotel is easy to get to from the airport (airport bus to Placa Catalunya - €5.90) then a 10-15 minute walk to the hotel (or 1 stop on the metro - but it is easier to walk). The closest metro station is Universitat which... More

Very clean and a great location for walking around the city or using the metro - station was 2 min walk. We stayed 4 nights and staff all very friendly (apart from one girl who was aloof and uninterested when I had a few questions) Breakfast is extra and was very good but a bit overpriced at 9 euros. I... More

The hotel is well presented and modern. Great location close to Placa Universitat, 24 hours supermarket open in front of the hotel, nice bar nearby for breakfast (much cheaper than the €9.90 to be paid for breakfast at the hotel). The room was very nice and the staff very friendly and helpful. Only issue is the wi-fi: they do have... More

Helpful staff (they upgraded us to bugger room and gave baby cot, even though we did not ask for it), nice and relatively clean room, perfect location, within walking distance from everything you need to see.

The hotel is situated very close to the University square, where you can catch the Aerobus from and to the airport, plus close to Metro station. It's in the center, great location for sight - seeing, but much more peaceful from anywhere close to Las Ramblas or other very touristic places. You can find nearby lots of restaurants and bars....

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.
