If you're looking for a low budget central place to sleep, this place is a good option. We stayed in the double room and it was quite small, but it was enough for us. Clean and cozy. Breakfast is simple

Stayed for one night in this hotel. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The rooms were ok for one night but could do with updating especially the tv. The breakfast was poor croissant and toast. Hotel is clean and good enough for one night. The rooms are not sound proof and we could clearly hear peoples conversations as they walked... More

Room had been recently updated - quite charming with exposed bricks. Corridors a bit shabby. Continental breakfast is 2 pieces of toast and a croissant but sufficient to start the day. Staff friendly and helpful. Good budget hotel for our three night break. Location is good - five minutes on foot to Las Ramblas and near metros. 10/15 minutes from... More

We booked on booking.com.The very friendly owner and a lady cleared their garage next to the hotel for us as we had requested secure parking for 3 motorcycles. We paid extra for this but it was worth it.One girl on Reception was bit miserable but professional. Big Lockers available in reception for two euros, much cheaper than room safe. The... More

Booked for only a one night stay, thankfully. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly, location was excellent, but all went downhill when we got to the room. Very small, felt very grubby, marks on walls, curtains were filthy and window looked into a utility area. It would take less than a day to update this small room. lick... More

Stayed here on a budget, knowing I had paid not a lot for this hotel and knowing from previous reviews there were some issues, I also read lots of things on Barcelona saying not a good area etc especially at night. Used city discovery shuttle to get from the airport and was dropped off quite near the hotel but with... 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.
