5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for one night post-cruise and had an excellent experience. The hotel has an excellent position on Las Ramblas and offers a welcome sanctuary from the hectic world outside on a hot day. The interior is luxurious and rather dramatic with dark woods, low lighting and lots of back in the colour scheme. Our two superior rooms overlooked Las... More

The hotel is centrally located and the service is exceptional. We checked in well before check in time and the staff did their best to accommodate us while we waited for our room by allowing us to use all of the facilities (spa, pool, gym). Then we were able to check in early! The hotel is very clean and comfortable... More

This is a great hotel in a great location. The rooms that face the Ramblas are a little nosier but get one with balcony and spend time just people watching. The roof top pool and restaurant is great and the breakfast buffet is well worth the price.

Spectacular hotel with beautiful rooms, the best location, next to La Rambla and the Barrio Gotico, great food that can be enjoyed at the square, and the most friendly staff. Would stay there again anytime

This is a great hotel on the La Ramblas, short distant to the waterfront and surrounded by shops and restuarants. Spacious high ceilings, great outdoor pool and bar as well as heated indoor pool with sauna and gym. It is a boutique style hotel modern with a touch of colonial style and the service is excellent would highly recommend it.

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.
