We took a triple room for two nights and couldn't have been more pleased. We slept well in a clean room with cute balcony (I did need extra blankets delivered by housekeeping) and found it incredibly convenient for sightseeing and dining out. The breakfast was great and good timing (until 11). Soap and sachets of shampoo were provided but it's worth bringing your own toilettries. We also opted for the massages which were an hour of heaven and the relaxation one in particular was transformational!

Room Tip: There is a lift but even first floor didn't seem noisy to us.

Dear Guest,

We would like to thank you very much for writing these lovely review about Hotel Curious! We are so glad that you had such a great stay with us!

As you already pointed out, Hotel Curious is at the heart of Barcelona, so this is the perfect point for visiting the whole city by foot. Metro station is 3 minutes walk, so if you decide to visit a far venue, there's no problem to move through the city and be always very well connected with our hotel.

Once again, thank you so much and we hope to see you soon again at Hotel Curious!

Our best regards,

Artur Artigas

Very close to the boqueria, las rambas, beaches, etc. staff was very friendly and breakfast is served until 11am, what I found great! Thea rooms are small and compact. - we did have some issues with the tv, also, they should offer more English speaking choices. We travelled with our 2 y old and they were great with her! Super friendly!!

The bed was a tiny bit on the uncomfortable side. - thin mattress.

Dear Guest,

We would like to thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about us!
Yes, we thought that when our guests are on holday, they don't want to wake up very early, so we offer our breakfast service from 8am until 11am every morning. Holidays are for relaxing and sleeping and resting a lot!
Regarding the TV, we are trying to add more channels on our TV in english.
According to the most of our guests, mattresses are very comfortable. We are very sorry that they did not please you.

Once again, thank you very much for choosing Hotel Curious.

Our best regards,

We stayed in double room with balcony that opened through the internal courtyard on the first floor (there's a different color theme for each floor, first floor is green). It was very nice and quiet at night. Room was on the small side but functional and comfortable. We didn't feel cramped at all, though we were travelling with 2 huge luggages! Bed was comfortable. Shower was great. Reception staff was super nice and helpful. You'd feel right at home here. Hotel location was A+++++ at the center of everything! Walking distance to Plaça Catalunya, Passeig de Gràcia, Barri Gothic. Many great resaurants nearby. We'll definitely be back!

As many before me: this hotel is about its location and the price. My room (looking to the back side) was a bit small but OK. It may be helpful if there were a few drawers. Breakfest is OK but is the same every morning. The staff at the desk - most helpfull.

Great location, friendly staff and very clean, if tiny, rooms. If you are looking for a budget accommodation with en suite bathroom, I'd highly recommend. Would be even better if guests were provided access to the rooftop terrace.

Room Tip: Requested a balcony room, received a note that they would try but no guarantees. In the end, I had...

We have a rooftop terrace but according to the law, at this very moment we can't open it for guests use, but we are on negotiations. Nowadays it is full of machines of the aire conditioning system.

Curious is extremely well located. The rooms are clean and very simple but have all you need, except good tv channels (3). Breakfast is quite good and staff is welcoming. Careful with the discounts available at the reception as some places may not accept them. Overall a well deserved 4.
