The room was quite big and it had a design that i really liked. The room was clean, we had A/C, and the bathroom was big... More

This is more like a hostel, with basic amenities. The location is excellent, a few blocks off La Ramblas and near La Boqueria. Rooms are clean. However, the fan in my room was making a lot of noise so I could barely sleep. Staff are friendly and helpful though.

This is a special short stay residences for academic people but accept walk-ins via bookig.com. It is recently renovated. The rooms are spacious, the amenities are good. Moreover you are minutes away from La Ramla. And the prices are much less than three stars hotels.

The hotel is right in the Old City, very close to a subway station and most of the places one wants to visit or dine at. It is decorated quite simply, but our room was spacious, neat and clean. Upon seeing that we were in the senior guest category, the staff immediately changed our room to an interior one so... 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.
