Very dangerous neighborhood, we saw two people getting mugged and a fight with 10 guys in front of the hotel during our 5 nights stay. Hotel doors locked at night, feel like being in an Arabic country. Drugs dealers and prostitutes in every corner. I love Barcelona but will never stay again at this hotel and neighbourhood. Hotel staff says not unsafe but they lock the doors at 10 pm!

Response from Carlene García Ehrhardt, Director General at Barceló Raval
Responded 2 weeks ago
Dear guest, Thank you for your last visit. The location of the hotel is normally valued as a positive aspect as it is very centrally located. The hotel is situated only 5 minutes away from Las Ramblas and the Boquería Market, and only 10 minutes from the Gothic cathedral. Nevertheless, in the center of Barcelona, like in so many other famous european cities with tourism, tourists need to be aware of pickpockets and be carefull with their personal items to avoid any unpleasant surprise. We sincerely regret to read about your unfortunate and rather terrible experience outside the hotel, and are sorry that the external aspects tainted your experience inside the hotel and your overall experience in Barcelona. We thank you once again and remain at your disposal. Kind regards, Carlene García General Manager

Hotel's Favorite
Just back from a long weekend away and could not fault the hotel. From check in to check out the staff could not have been more helpful. Albert greeted us with a friendly smile on arrival and Ariel made fabuous drinks on the roof terrace throughout our stay. Hotel is modern and funky. Rooms were more than comfortable with the higher ones having amazing views across the city. 5 minutes away from the metro and the Boqueria. We travel to BCN regularly for short breaks and have stopped at numerous hotels across the city. I think now we have found a favourite - great location, great rooms, and above all else - great service. Thanks for the memories - we will be back!

Myself & my husband are currently staying here for New Year. The hotel is beautiful, very stylish & full of quirky art pieces & decor. It is spotlessly clean & all the staff are extremely friendly. From check in to bar & waiting on. I honestly can't fault a single thing. Our deluxe city view room is perfect with spectacular views over the city & everything you need, beds & pillows are so comfortable, amazing shower. Yes it is compact & toilet etc behind a sliding door but everything fits perfectly. The roof top bar & 360 view of Barcelona is wow! The area can feel a little daunting & we had a few beggars ask for money but it didn't put us off. Nati helped organise the New Year's Eve celebration dinner & always replied to any communication. It was excellent value for money with lots of little delicious courses including beers, red & white wine & cava for 2.5 hours. Andreas was the perfect waiter for the evening. A little goody bag of party props for the countdown to midnight. My only fault for the evening would be the ending. Maybe a gentle reminder to start making our way to the roof top for 12am to avoid large queues for lifts with a minute to spare. Also maybe a member of staff there to countdown as midnight arrives? Overall I would highly recommend a stay here as it has everything you need & is very comfortable

Nice hotel with amazing view over Barcelona. A little shady neighbourhood to walk in at night. Friendly staff at check-in and bar. In the restaurant you had to download an app to see the menu, but only for food, drinks were printed.
