We stayed at the Grau during a four day stay in Barcelona in July. Overall, the experience was positive, and the hotel is in a great location, with rooms that were being refurbished to meet a modern and stylish new standard. Unfortunately, the hotel was running way over schedule with the actual refurbishment, and the lobby and hallway on our floor was a construction site. We were not informed about this upon booking, but were given a decent discount for our troubles.
The room itself was light and comfy, with a well-functioning aircon and blinds to keep noise out. Once the last patches on the walls are made I'm sure it will be even better.
We were particularly happy with the service that greeted us. The receptionist with which we had the most contact (her name might have been Kinga...) was extremely forthcoming and friendly, despite having to work long hours in a small corner of the unfinished lobby.
I'm sure we will be back when the travails are out of the way and would recommend the place to everyone who's looking for a place in the old town/raval area.
