While we have visited Spain several times this was the first trip to Barcelona (4 days). Hotel Curious is just 100m off Rambla in the thick of that district of shops and restaurants. I have never found a hotel staff more helpful. They understood our mobility limitations as a senior couple. Restaurant recommendations were right on the mark and obviously not just the popular tourist places. While spartan, the staff and location more than made up for this. Room was large and comfortable. We like the rooms that face Carme, particularly the upper floors. WiFi works well and is free. Security was excellent as no one can enter with out being seen by the front desk and they seem to know all the guests by name after check-in. A small frig would have been a nice addition. Best value we have seen in a long time. Don' miss the lunch counter in the market (entrance from Carme, 50M) or Rambla). It will be the one with a crowd waiting. You have to wait for a stool but the vegetables and sea food are outstanding
