I love everything about Hostal Grau. Though it is technically a "hostal," it is a far cry from the stereotypical image many Americans might have in their head. Tucked away from one of Barcelona's busiest streets, Hostal Grau was clean, adorable, and the perfect choice for two weary travelers hoping to enjoy a week in the heart of that great... More

This place is very central although a bit noisy at night. Our room was on the 3rd floor so the likelihood is the lower levels are more noisy. It is clean and simply decorated. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Funky and clean rooms in top location.. Staff were really helpful. A little hard for the cab to find it when we first arrived but the locals pointed us in the right direction! It was also close to the bus to the airport as an alternative.. Would definitely recommend.

We had a really great stay at this very clean and friendly Hostal. The reception staff were always cheerful and helpful. It was close to the metro and plenty of really good eating places. Walking was the easy option as it was in relatively quite street.

We could reach the hostal very easily: we arrived at Plaça Catalunya by Aerobus and it took only 5 minutes on foot to get to the hotel. It is situated in a narrow side street of la Rambla, which is very practical. The street, C. de Tallers, isn't touristic at all: there are different kinds of shops, bars and bakeries.... More

Hostal Grau, is in such a perfect location for what ever you want to do in Barcelona. The staff was so friendly and the place is clean and unique and so very comfortable and cozy. You will definitely hear a little street noise with there being a bar down on the corner but would recommend anyone try to stay here.

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.
