“Fantastic Hotel in a great location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

Just returned from a 2 night stay in Barcelona. Hotel is perfectly located, just off the main La Rambla area.
Hotel is very modern, exceptionally clean everywhere and well maintained. Rooms are very comfortable and well equipped with TV and hair dryer. Modern feel of the rooms gives the relatively small rooms a spacious feel.
Breakfast was great - continental style, fresh with good choice.
Reception staff make the hotel. Always friendly and polite. They are only too happy to offer advice on anything from where to visit, what time is best to go, where to eat, transport system and weather. They recommended two places to eat at and both were fantastic. If you stay here make sure you make the most of their excellent local knowledge.
In summary, great hotel, perfect location, fantastic staff. I would highly recommend the hotel.

I stayed with my mom for 2 nights prior to a cruise at the end of March. The location is perfect for most tourists. We were able to walk everywhere. We did take a cab to Sagradia Familia, but that was the only place we didn't walk to.

We had a twin room and like other reviews, the room is sparse but clean and the bathroom was fine. We like the fact that we could open the windows.

Breakfast is good with cereals, bread, meat, cheese, yogurt, fruit, eggs, pastry coffee and tea. Juice was an additional charge. Free internet and computer in the lobby was a bonus.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The next time I'm in Barcelona, Hotel Curious will be my first choice!

Dear Customer,

Thank you so much for your lovely review about Hotel Curious. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Hotel Curious is the perfect place to start the day, as it is located in the very city center and it allows you to literally have a walk to all the most emblematic places: the Cathedral, Las Ramblas, Maremagnum and the port, the Gothic Quarter, Passeig de Gràcia (shops and restaurants...)! Sagrada Familia is only 20 minutes walk. That's fantastic. As a starting point, Hotel Curious is great. Also, our staff will provide you with a map and all kind of information you ma need: restaurants, bars, shops, what to do, where to go... just ask us and we will help you with anything!

In the breakfast only Natural Juice (just made juice) has an additional charge. However, we offer bottled juice and you can drink all you want for free, of course.

Once again, thank you so much and we look forward to see you soon in Barcelona!

Best regards,

Artur Artigas

I hesitate to write this review becasue some of this many be beyond the control of the hotel itself, but how the situation was handled was very poor. The staff at check-in was great and the room itself was very good. We also enjoyed our breakfast on the one morning we stayed there. We were booked at the Hotel Curious for 3 Nights, but after our 1st night we had no choice but to check-out. There was construction going on in the building connected to the hotel and the noise in our room was so loud you would have thought the workers were standing next to us. Voices, yelling, hammering, power drills, etc. It was HORRIBLE!

When I asked/told the front desk about the noise it seemed as if theyvsimply could care less. Telling me, "Yes, there is construction going on, there is nothing we can do about it." While that may be true, a decent room where sleeping is possible is surely not too much to ask. They even refused to move us to a room without all the construction noise for the duration of our stay. I was shocked by this, especially after reading all the good reviews.

The man working the desk, Mateo, was not helpful in the least and refused to take any blame for the hotel renting out this particular room, which was truly unbearable. I am very disappointed with this property, we relocated to the Hotel Turin down the street which was quite nice. It would have been a great place to stay without this happening, be sure to ask about construction before booking!

Room Tip: Is there still construction going on in the area??? If so, AVOID THIS PLACE!

Dear Customer,

Thanks for your comments, they are all very important to help us to improve.

We deeply regret the problems caused by the construction works in the building next to us.
We inform that those works are eventual, as some of the floors are being tied up. Most of the times they are not loud at all, and only in some times they have to do noisy works. Until then, when they work in the morning, they finish before afternoon, but never during the evening or night. We are having several meetings with the manager of the building construction, as works are in another building, not in our Hotel. You only has to read the last comments to check that it is true, and that 99% of our guests are satisfied with our Hotel.

Unfortunately we could not change your room as we were fully booked during your dates. We are deeply sorry if you felt offended by this, but the change was impossible at that time, although we offered to return the money to you.

Regarding the receptionist who attended you, Mateo, he has always had very good reviews, and many customers write to us just to thank you for his attention and treatment. He is a cheerful, a helpful and a very good professional, and we are proud to have him in the hotel.

Despite this experience, we really hope to see you soon at Hotel Curious!

Best regards,

Artur Artigas

I went in March on a citytrip to Barcelona with my mother. We've stayed here 4 nights. Location is excellent: in the middle of the center but quiet at night. Our room was small, but very clean! We had our own balcony, which was also very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. They speak fluent English and French. Nice breakfast, with eggs, croissants, cheese, meat, yoghurt,...This is certainly a place I would recommend!

Dear Customer,

We would like to thank you very much for taking the time to write some lines about us. This is what really makes all of us improve in our daily work!

Hotel Curious is a small hotel located at the heart of Barcelona and it is ideal for short city breaks. Its location makes it perfect to go anywhere by foot. It is right next to Las Ramblas but not IN Las Ramblas, so there is no noise at all.

Our building has the appearance of an ancient construction of the old Barcelona, so its balconies are just lovely. From them, you can see Las Ramblas and have some fresh air. They are certainly beautiful.

Thank you so much and we hope to see you soon at our place!

Best regards,

Artur Artigas

Stayed here from 2nd to 6th April. The hotel is spotless and an excellent base for the whole of the city, being very close to Las Ramblas and a Metro Station. Staff very helpful, breakfast plentiful.

As a solo traveller, I felt very comfortable, safe and relaxed here.

Hope to return sometime and no hesitation in recommending Hotel Curious.
