We chose this hotel first of all because of the location - close to Plaça Catalunya, to the Ramblas etc. Quite nice quarter, a little bit noisy, but safe ( not as near the Ramblas!) The design is simple, but sympathic. Very clean. The lady on the arrival gave us a map and explained everything about the city, the bus... More

Apt. Balmes is a great way to stay in the downtown core on a budget, but it would have been nice to have a working water heater while we were there. Barcelona (and the apartment) is hot and humid so a warm shower would have been a great way to recover from the day. Also the steady stream of ants... 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.
