Came to Barcelona with loads of excitement with my girlfriend. Arrived at the hotel the receptionist was not welcoming. Checked us in gave our keys on table and just sat back down and carried on doing what he was on his computer. Did not direct us to the room or what floor it was on etc. Once in the room... More

We had 17h long stopover in Barcelona and had to spend the night there. We chose Pension 45 because it was close to Plaza Cataluna, had 24h reception and reasonably prices. Our plane arrived at midnight and about 1:30 we made it to the pension. It's not especially nice place, but facilities were functional and room clean. Checkout is 11:00... More

Very central easy to access. Rooms are clean and adequate. Be sure to ask for private bathroom, not all rooms have them. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Best of all is Centric Ravel Tapas Bar below it.

We arrived for 3 nights on the airport transfer bus - dropped us in Placa Catalunya and it was surprisingly easy to find our way to the Hotel - although some bigger signage on the building might help!. We were welcomed in, checked in, given the wifi code and told to ask if we needed any help. Ok, the place... More

Fantastic location, 200m to plaza catalunya and la rambla. Room smallish but clean and adequate. Many nice bars and restaurants very close by. Staff friendly and very helpful. Could not recommend more highly for value and location

As other reviews have said, the location is great but do not expect to sleep well during the summer because is very hot, there is just a basic fan and the streets below the rooms can get noisy at late night. Rooms are very basic, is not hotel. Be aware of the shower and the bathroom as they are shared... More

We read some reviews on tripadvisor about this hostel. It's clean, it has free wifi, it's directly in the centre of Barcelona (5min. to Ramblas). If you're looking for luxury, this is not the place to be, but you'll get everything you need. The staff is very friendly. One thing: as we arrived at 11pm it was already dark outside... More

Budget hotel, located just 2 minutes from La Rambla, close to 'Placa de Catalunya'. We got a double bed bath attached room - nice and spacious enough with good bath. Didn't feel like anything being compromised for the low price. The stay was very comfortable, also the person at reception was of great help in planing our days in the... More

The location of this hostel is perfect just 2 minutes away from ramblas; and the price paid for such a good location is awesome. I think no hotel/hostel in the area can beat such an awesome price (we paid a total of €300 for two for 6 nights). The guy in the morning is very helpful and friendly additionally he... More

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.
