...brilliant for accessing the Gothic quarter, just 10 minutes walk from the Renee (airport bullet train) stop - Passeig de Garcia; 12-15 minutes from the Apple, Adidas, Nike stores et al; Starbucks a block away... The hotel itself is more like a 3* hotel - our room on the 4th floor/5th storey was very dark and depressing, with little space...

Location, location, location. That's the biggest positive of the Sunotel Central in Barcelona. Right on the Gran Via, it's less than 2 blocks from the Universitat Metro station, there are buses that stop right outside the hotel, and a bunch of museums and galleries and shopping within walking distance, as well. I just got back after 3 nights at this...

Rooms are nice and spacious. Location is extremely strategic: we walked to la Rambla and to Sagrada Familia. Since the bed in the first room wasn't comfortable, we asked to change room. The person at the reception has been extremely kind and arranged the change immediately. The new room was identical to the first, but with a bigger bed. IMPORTANT!...

Poor value for money- period. I've been in equally nice European cities in luxury hotels that cost a fraction the price of this one. Wonderful location near the top of La Rambla and a straight drive in from the airport. Lots of shopping and plazas nearby and a few places to eat. Really liked the breakfast but the lobby was...

I booked a surprise trip away for my boyfriend for his 28th birthday. This hotel is in an ideal location, breakfast is pretty basic but it is close to lots of cafe's so you can easily save and go room only. Staff are very helpful. The rooms are on the small side but were fine for a weekend away. The...

My wife and I stayed for a week here in Barcelona late September 2016. We wanted something simple, clean and comfortable and did not need anything too fancy. The one thing we were hoping to find was helpful staff; I can report that we were very pleased in this area. The staff was great about restaurant suggestions and busing/Metro help...

Location was perfect. 10 minutes walk to Passeig da Gracias and 2-3 minutes walk to metro station Universitat. The hotel is clean and worth staying. The rooms are small and with the view of the street.

I stayed at Sunotel Central with my girlfriend for four nights as part of a city break. The staff are polite and accommodating, the hotel is clean and the bathrooms are very modern and spacious (I have never seen such a big shower head in my life). The double room we booked wasn't that big but the bed was very...

Booked this hotel last minute and wasn't disappointed. Great location, very friendly staff, with a couple of great bars round the corner serving tapas until 2am. Rooms are comfortable with a/c and very modern bathrooms. Would definitely stay here again.

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.
