Just arrived. Horrible hot, poky room with tiny window overlooking air conditioning units. Where is the balcony & view we were promised? Receptionist not interested & reviewed to move us. Could not be more disappointed. Location is good - we will not be spending time here!

Sunotel Central was a very convenient, clean and exceptionally friendly spot. The staff were very helpful and informative, the rooms clean, well appointed and the location is really good for both Pl. de Catalunya, La Rambla and the metro. Good food, shopping, etc. nearby and it was a very pleasant stay for us on two occasions.

The hotel is very near plaza cataluñya and the old city center. It is well served by subway and bus. Very small rooms, small bathroom. No additional pillows, unefficient roommate make the hotel at least 2 or 3 stars category. Prices are for 4 stars category. I think you can find something better at better price.

The hotel staff were very helpful and gracious, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. We selected a room facing the street so that we could have a balcony, which worked for us. This big city keeps late nights, so there was street noise. If you think that might keep you awake, you can select a room at the back of... More

Far from a 4 star hotel !Rooms where small and pokey. Roof of hotel was closed over with a plastic covering so when you opened your window no air came in. Air conditioning was poor. Breakfast was very poor and cold and waiting staff very rude. No stopper for bath pillows where thin and bed uncomfortable. Only for we stayed... More

Advertised as 4 star, I suggest 1 to 2 star at most. Everything needed was there but only to the most minimum standard. For example; poor lighting in the room, whole place in need of refurbishment, only 1 towel each (not changed in 3 days), staff (except for 1 receptionist) bad mannered and surly, had a room at the back...

Just returned from a short break in Barcelona and stayed in the Sunotel Central. Great hotel with a fantastic rooftop pool which we were lucky enough to use due to the amazing weather. Our first night was spent in a room at the front of the hotel and was incredibly noisy due to high volume if traffic. We asked to... More

Ok this is an average hotel . But I have stayed 4 times here because every time i look for a hotel in Barcelona this is the best value for money. Its close to the center (10 minutes on foot) its rooms are adequately sized and breakfast its ok . Cleaning services should come every day sometimes they forget that

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.
