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.

It’s refurbished since I last stayed there. It’s cozy and nice. Rooms vary in size but hey are well kept and clean. It’s on a noisy street and gets to be noisy at night. But it’s at the heart of Barca, between las Ramblas and las Ramblas de Raval and gives you easy access to

If you paid their website price, you did not get your money's worth here. I paid about $70 US per night (around 65% of their website price). I guess that is a good rate for Barcelona, but the rooms are very small and very basic. (Trip Advisor lists a number of pensions that

Small room, perfecty optimized and very modern decoration. Everything you need is there, 2 steps from las Ramblas and all nice restaurants of the old city. And a price far away from the hotels, especially in the busy periods.

Are there kettles in the rooms?
There was no kettle in my room. Can't say about other rooms. However, I think it is standard.

Are they any room with safe in the hotel?
do the rooms have safes ?
I don't remember the room we rented having a safe, but even if they did not when we stayed, they may have them now. this is something that you can check with the hotel to see if they have rooms with safes. The rooms felt quite secure because no one could enter the hotel unless they were a resident or staff.
