It is just off La Ramblas, and is a 5 minute walk to a metro station. Mateo and the rest of the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is...

Two years ago we stayed here and as soon as I found out we were returning to Barcelona, I immediately booked the Hotel Curious. This time we booked 2 additional rooms for family members who were traveling with us. Two rooms were at the front of the hotel, the single faced the rear. The single room was very small, but...

Firstly the location is perfect for access to the city and what has been said many times only a couple of minutes walk from Las Ramblas. The hotel is a gem decent sized and spotlessly clean room, pleasant staff and also a lovely...

I was a young female, traveling alone to Barcelona so safety and courtesy was of great importance. The staff put all my concerns to rest immediately upon my arrival, telling me how to best travel around the city, what to be careful of (which wasn't much) and the cost efficient ways to enjoy my time. The location right off of...

We stayed at Hotel Curious prior to a cruise with friends. When we arrived at the hotel at 10:30AM, our room was ready but our friends' room was not. We placed all of the luggage in our room and venture off to explore. The hotel is right off of Las Ramblas. La Boqueria is right around the corner. We used...

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.
