This hotel was exactly what we were after - just a few minutes from Las Ramblas, but quiet, small, fairly basic rooms but comfortable. Coffee making facilities in doubles (but not singles, and only herbal teas).

I booked this hotel almost 6 months before my stay just because of its location. but just 3 days before I was slated to arrive in barcelona and already in the middle of my vacation. they cancelled my booking by giving silly excuses. Probably because they found someone that was ready to pay much more. On top of that they... More

This hotel is right off the main drag in Barcelona, just a few minutes from a metro station, so getting around is quite easy. Apotheke and several bakeries/convenience stores in the immediate vicinity as well. Front desk was friendly and very accommodating - the pillows were essentially flat so we asked for two more. Everything was very clean, the rooms... More

It's not a high-end luxury hotel, and a saying goes like "you get what you pay for". However, in this case, I feel like I got more than I paid for All the basics were covered. Easy access to the rest of Barcelona, clean rooms, good service, and relatively quiet (considering where it is placed, and I stayed there during... More

We've been here at the end of February, it was really an amazing stay. The price was quite fair, 60 euros for night, for stay in a quiet hotel, very clean, near La Rambla and the Mercato de la Boquieria. The position is perfect, near the metro, near the sea, near La Rambla. The street where it is situated is... More

We were a little skeptical first day we arrived at the hotel, as it is located in a narrow side street. We got a small but perfectly OK room. Clean and nice.

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.
