The best of this stay, was the attention from personnel and the perfect location, as it is at 200 meters from the Plaza Cataluña. Besides that, I didn´t like it. Rooms are very small and in poor conditions. Extremely small bathrooms with old fixtures. Very noisy! The air conditioning didn´t work well. I do not recommend this hotel and the... More

If you just need a bed and a shower then this hotel is fine. Location is excellent, close to Pl Catalunya and is kept very clean and is small and secure, but don't expect any extras whatsoever. You will even be charged to use the safe in your room! Staff answered our questions in a perfunctory manner but were very... More

On arriving at the Hotel by taxi (which had trouble finding it) we carried our luggage along a badly lit covered passageway, up a flight of stairs to the lift. The lift took us up one floor where we had to turn right and press a bell for the door to the reception to be opened. We signed in and... More

This hotel is in a good location for a quick walk to the Plaza Cataluyna. I found some of the staff to be quite friendly and helpful. Besides that, I was happy to leave this hotel after 5 nights. The guest rooms are located near the entrance door and main desk. That means constant noise. You hear whenever someone rings... More

Stayed 4 nights in Hotel Pelayo with friend. 2 nights in a room down the hall from the reception. Small, quiet and clean. Changed to a bigger 3 bed room for the last two nights. More noisy as it faced the street, but still ok. Would recommend this hotel to visitors to Barcelona who wants a good hotel for a... More

If location and price are the things you are looking for when choosing a hotel, this is the place, just off La Rambla and Placa Catalunya, nothing fancy but perfect, clean, Juliet balcony or a window to the courtyard, without breakfast, but plenty of cafes and bakeries nearby for that, free WiFi, courteous staff, would stay again

We were a group of friends. Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and was a perfect location for traveling across Barcelona. Ramblas are just 100 meters away, there is a metro station about 50 meters from hotel, from where you can explore hole Barcelona. Room was clean and modest.

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.
