We stayed only 2 nights in this hotel and it was fine although the room we got was a bit small and there is constant noise from the sorroundings and from the rooms nearby, there is no noise isolation but it's not that bad... The reception was very friendly and more than willing to help in any question or doubt.... More

The one star outside the front door with the 'Star' emblem hacked off says it all - we a couple in a larger group enjoyed staying here simply because it was only a place to sleep for us. Tiny rooms - no amenities (i.e. TV, phone, etc.) - wifi functional in the common areas (or in some rooms if they... More

If you're looking for somewhere comfortable to stay i would not recommend here.The staff was friendly however the interior and rooms were definitely not up to hotel standards; the foyer for instance was rather quirky but the decoration of excessive plants and garden like decor made it outdated, dingy and quite small.(on a positive note the WiFi in the foyer...

I have just returned from Barcelona with my best friend, and a 4 night stay at Hotel Peninsular. We were pleased with everything from the get go; The hotel is, first and foremost, in a great location just off La Rambla and almost everything you could want to do in Barcelona is within walking distance. Literally less than 5 minutes... More

The hotel was not as nice looking as it showed in the picture. Our room was at the back, and we had to go up in the lift then go down a flight of stairs carrying our suitcases. We were dismayed when we saw the room - bare ceramic floors, single beds that are more like cots covered by faded,... More

This basic ( no TV or frig) hotel is quaint with the rooms on each floor being around an indoor courtyard. It may be basic but everything works. Great positives are the friendly and helpful staff, location in the center of the old town, good breakfast and close proximity to metro station.

Peninsular is an amazing hidden gem that has barely changed since my first visit in 1999. No TVs, no plastic, nothing unnecessary that contrasts the original interior. Since last year they've installed electric keys, but otherwise they kept it simple. Always authentic, always clean, always friendly, always close to Las Ramblas. It's open patio with hanging plants from roof to... More

We stayed for 4 nights and would certainly stay here again. Basic but perfectly functional accommodation (there were two of us but we got a room with four single beds, but a bit of jiggery pokery soon made it snuggly). The staff were great and everything was clean and the room made up each day - even on the day... 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.
