“Perfect modern hideaway in great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Stayed in the Barcelo Raval for one night in October prior to a med cruise-we were very impressed!
Great ultra modern design hotel in a great location 5 minute walk to middle of Las Ramblas!
Rooms are good with large windows with grilles which is the local modern style,comfortable beds ambient lighting electric curtain tracks and good flat screen TVs.
Great 360 degrees roof top terrace with bar,plunge pool and fantastic views.
Stupidly went out for breakfast which was false economy!
Great value at 90 Euros for a superior room must be best value in town.
Minor grumble that drinks are a lot dearer on roof top!

Room Tip: Ask for high floor

Best hotel I ever had. Good breakfast, Nice reception, good staff, good services, lot of attention to small details, a luxurious hotel with a good feeling. You get a 'home' feeling when entering. The bar is expensive, but it has a great vieuw. The swimmingpool gives a hot air and is great to lay down a bit. The rooms have airco that is usefull during the hot days.

Room Tip: Ask the reception for a LAN-cable. There are connection points in the rooms and it is faster and bet...

Stayed at the Barcelo Raval in Barcelona end of September. It's an amazing tube-like hotel with round walls (obviously) and with neon mood lighting and eclectic objets d'art - it also boasts a roof top splash pool and views to die for. Perfectly placed for Las Ramblas and a short taxi to the various Gaudi edifices. Reasonably priced, rooms, food and drinks. Hotel staff were fantastically helpful, from bar staff to front desk sorting our scooter hire. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: the higher the better because the view improves.

Barcelo Raval is an interesting hotel. The desk staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke English very well. They answered every question we had. The rooms are very modern, have no storage and very bad lighting. We stayed before and after a cruise. Our first room had a shower, tub combination which was very had to get in and out of. The tub was deep and there were no hand rails to help in climbing in and out. The shower doors didn't close properly so water was all over. The second room just had a shower and that was easier but the glass wall to the bedroom area was different. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was included and was very good. The location of the hotel is good. It is in a changing area but I never felt unsafe. It is close to Las Ramblas and there are several places to eat near the hotel. I would stay there again because the location is so convenient but the amenities of the rooms leave much (such as lights, seating and drawer space) to be desired.

Have always found Barcelo Hotels fine and this was no exception. Agreed, it is near some shady streets but the hotel was a safe haven for a few days break. It is very handy for many of Barcelona's attractions. The rooms are very nice - clean with all facilities although not sure we liked the colour scheme of lime green and mauve. Breakfast was fine (although I wish they had a toaster that worked a bit quicker.
Would I stay again - Yes. It was a good hotel for a reasonable price.

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights, the hotel is a short walk from the ever bustling Las Ramblas. Hotel is very modern, rooms are clean, staff were very helpful. Only downside is the the short walk to and from the hotel is through a seedy road. Although, there were no incidents, it's not a very comfortable feeling and one learns early on not to make eye contact! Overall, a good hotel in terms of location to transport and Las Ramblas.
