The hotel is located just two blocks from Plaza Universitat. Great location to explore the city. The hotel itself is fairly good, nothing else. The rooms are little than average. The WIFI connection is very poor and they change the password every 24 hours. Be prepare, they charge 4€ daily for using the safe deposit box. The bathtub is kind... More

Excellent hotel. Friendly and very helpful staff. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. Only two blocks away from Place de Universitat for metro and bus stops to and from airport. Couldn't recommend it enough.

Tiny tiny room. No air. Smells bad. Way way way overpriced. Bad service. Old and ugly design. grumpy staff. Very very disappointing. Feels like a hostel. The small window is to a space inside the hotel, which means you don't really have a window. It cost 100 euro for a night (thank god I stayed only one night), no breakfast.... More

Ideally positioned for visiting Barcelona, spent 3 nights and we saw a lot of Barcelona, excellent location and price. Walking distance to main areas with good restaurants and cafes nearby. Would definately stay here again.

Spent 4 nights here, and only two nights were enjoyable unfortunately. Great things: 1. location, location, location. 2. Located next to a mini "supermarcat". 3. About 2 blocks from Metro Universitat stop. And easily accessible. Bad things: 1. Room we were given was a large room with a large balcony. (Actually the room was nice, although we requested a room... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice now; once in June 2016 and another in 2014. I had great experiences both times. The rooms are clean and quiet. We stayed near the rear of the hotel overlooking a lot of other apartments. Our friends stayed in the front looking out at the main street. They said their room was a... More

It's located in the Gran Via near the University of Barcelona. The Universitat Metro station is a block away. The rooms are small but clean. The wifi signal is good. The breakfast buffet is good. There is a mini grocery next door and a café and restaurant around the corner. The Plaza Catalunya/north end of Las Ramblas is 10 minutes... 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.
