My BF booked this and I don't know how much he paid but he said he got a great deal. He's a savvy traveller so I don't doubt it. It was my 6th stay in Barcelona and his 1st. The hotel itself is great. The reception/lounge/bar area is quirky, stylish and fun and I enjoyed sitting there - lots to...

Booked this hotel on the morning of our trip was not sure what to expect. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised the hotel has a peaceful ambiance and the decor is quirky. The room has all the facilities needed for a city break the only slight downfall would be the size of the bathroom which is on the downside...

Perfect name for this hotel. The rooms are basic providing what is required in a simple way, however the hotel is Chic. I loved the Tapas Bar and Reception with its suitcase check in desk and car in the lounge. The location is perfect, just one block of Ramblas. The breakfast was more than ample and the croissants were extremely...

Booked this hotel online and was not sure what to expect. Was pleasantly surprised when we checked in. Rooms are nice and clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Situated nice and close to everything we wanted to do on a city trip. I will most likely book in the same hotel again on the next city trip to Barcelona.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood 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.
