Neighborhood
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.

Everything you'd like in a city hotel. Location: within walking distance to a lot of tourist spots. In front of a subway station, close to the hop on-hop off buses. Great rooftop with good cocktail and great friendly bartenders.

Dear Madeleine of Toronto, I don’t think you’ll find laundry machines at hotels in general. This hotel does have laundry services and they charge by the type of clothes and quantity.
