The hotel is only a five minute walk from Las Rambles and the metro. The room was pretty spartan but clean and the breakfast was good and the front desk staff were uniformly helpful with excellent English. Rooms on the street have interesting views but may be noisy; we had an interior room which was quiet but a bit gloomy.... More

The hotel is right in the Old City, very close to a subway station and most of the places one wants to visit or dine at. It is decorated quite simply, but our room was spacious, neat and clean. Upon seeing that we were in the senior guest category, the staff immediately changed our room to an interior one so... More

This very functional hotel is situated just off Las Ramblas in the centre of Barcelona. The rooms are clean and spacious (but not luxurious if that's what you're looking for) with a TV and good sized bathroom. The buffet breakfast is very generous. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Will certainly be back. Thank you!

The hotel has a really good location, just on a side street of La Rambla. This can be and advantage when it comes to visiting the city but it also means that it's extremely noisy. Also for some reason the door needs to be slammed for actually being closed, i.e. if you have a light sleep you will not rest... More

This hostel is very basic with dorm like rooms, I missed the cosyness of my room in madrid! However, it was clean and had everything I needed. The location is really good, just a short walk from las ramblas, and metros near by. 24 hour reception with helpful staff. There was a free breakfast which was very basic, but better... More

No complaints about the place as it was very average in terms of the room. The price was fairly affordable, especially for that area which by the way is The area to be in in Barcelona. The room was very basic but clean so that is nice. I hardly spent any time in doors so didn't really mind. I would... 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.
