Just got back from a long weekend at the hotel for our honeymoon and we could have been more pleased. Check in was easy and we we're soon on our way up to our room. Later in the evening we came back to find a bottle of champagne left in our room which was much appreciated. The room was a...

From the minute the bell boy carried in our bags from the airport taxi we were impressed with the service at the Barcelona Universal. The receptionist spoke perfect English and explained where to go for breakfast, etc. He asked if we had been to Barcelona before (we hadn't) and then made sure we knew exactly where we were going and...

This is a hotel I would recommend and use again. The location was good - a short walk to the port and the Ramblas, MNAC, the Olympic park, a couple shopping malls. Tour bus drops 5 minutes away in either direction. Several markets, restaurants, and ATMs available within a minute's walk. Taxi stand a block away, as well as a...

The location is less than a 10 minute walk to Las Ramblas. The room and bathroom provided everything we needed to be comfortable. Having a bathtub is a bonus for relaxing after a long flight. We arrived at 9am and naturally the room was not ready but the staff stored our luggage until we returned from a visit to the...

We stayed here for 3 nights recently during a 5 night trip to Barcelona. It was a very pleasant hotel; clean, modern and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast was a little bit of a let down but it was still very nice and the area was not the best, if I returned to Barcelona I would stay...

We traveled to Barcelona in April 2013 and booked this hotel randomly. The hotel location could not have been better! There is a metro station in front of the hotel, several supermarkets near by, the staff was friendly, rooms large... We were very satisfied with our 3-nights stay at this hotel.

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.
