4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was our first time staying at Hotel Curious. It is a nice little boutique hotel. Check in was very easy and the front desk staff was always friendly and could answer our questions. The only downside was that the air conditioning didn't work very well in the room. It was the beginning of August and we were on the... More

Perfect location - we only had 1 night in Barcelona so location was important. Hotel is quiet and very clean. The best part is the friendly, accomodating and helpful staff. They really make Hotel Curious a special place. The rooms are small but very clean and quiet. I would like to see better pillows and a softer bed. Would we... More

Really helpful and friendly staff. Comfortable rooms, good breakfast, wifi, great location. Really everything that you want. For me the staff was the most amazing thing. When we brought dinner back to the hotel very late, they got us plates and silverware and let us eat in the breakfast room. Helped us numerous other times with arrangements. Didn't have any... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, the hotel is clean, rooms have everything you need. Location is great, just off Las Ramblas. The free breakfast is excellent with bread rolls, cereal, yogurts, fruit, pastries, hard boiled eggs, coffee you cant go wrong.

We stayed two nights in Hotel Curious. We found the location to be ideal, near the la rambla and within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. It is located in the older section of Barcelona which is exactly what we wanted. The rooms were air conditioned and very clean. The hotel staff was so accommodating. They gave advice when... More

The hotel is right in the heart of Las Ramblas by La Boqueria market. Very convenient to go anywhere. The hotel is clean. Room size is on the small side but our triple was ok. We got used to European sizes. The only complain I have is not about the hotel but about Las Ramblas. Las Ramblas is old and... More

Really friendly hotel and top location - really near La Ramblas but quiet which was great. Some nice restaurants downstairs and away from Las Ramblas as well. Staff are wonderful as per previous reviews and even organised an early breakfast for us to depart which is not common in hotels - very much appreciated. Downside was that the room was... More

This is the second time that we have stayed here and we were very pleased with our two rooms. They are small but clean and comfortable. The reception service is excellent, they were helpful with information and very friendly. The hotel is very close to Les Ramblas.

Very handy location and spacious room for the normal standards in Spain. Breakfast was very good with many choices and a pleasant walk to the buzzing central shopping area with all the restaurants and souvenir shops. The hotel has lots of character and staff are very friendly and helpful.

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.
