What really decided on this hotel for us was it's location in Eixample and it's on-site parking. We were not disappointed and found the hotel with ease and parked on-site. The basic room was remarkably well equipped and featured a coffee machine and great bathroom. The soundproofing is not great but the room size and hotel features (pool, roof terrace...

My wife and I also booked through last minute and really wish we hadn't. Unfortunately I have to agree with a past bad review and say that the "standard room" we had only goes to demonstrate that standards need improving. The room we had on the second floor was tiny and I don't mean bijou but too small for a...

We booked this hotel through last minute as a secret hotel because the location was very central and the reviews were good. The location is very good, and definitely one of the strongest aspects of this hotel - we were able to walk everywhere from it. However - the facilities and the room itself were below par. The room was...

The hotel was an easy walk away from bars, shops, restaurants, the metro, la familia sagrada, the cathedral, la rambla. The hotel was basic, clean with a nice big shower and a coffee machine. However the air con didn't work properly and when we asked if they could look at it they gave us a noisy fan. We could hear...

Sunotel Central was a nice hotel for its price. Just a simple clean room, very close to univeristat metro station. Really close to the centre (just a 5 min walk). The employees were friendly. Didn't have the chance to taste their breakfast though

I am a very positive reviewer and always look on the bright side of life.. i am usually happy to overlook small things but in this case, i need to detail the specifics. 1. Supposed to be a new/newish hotel.. gee it has gone downhill fast, probably due to setting it up cheaply. 2. The reviews are correct. - shotty...

Sunotel is easy to find near the University, With plenty of choices of cafes, shops and bars nearby, and only a short walk from Placa de Catalunya, Passage de Gracia and Las Ramblas. The location is easily the main attraction to staying here. The room i was given was small but extremely clean, however the bed was hard and uncomfortable,...

The staff is great. The room was clean. Those are the two nice things I can say. The room was the smallest room I have EVER seen. HOT -- the air is preset to only go so low. When we opened the windows, the smell is awful. The bed was fAR too short for anyone over five feet tall. Centrally...

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.
