Trendy hotel with accommodating staff. Good but a little pricey in house restaurant. Flamenco music on weekends was lovely. Comfortable rooms facing quiet street. Close to the southern end of Ramblas and Metro.

We stayed in this hotel during February half term hols for 5 nights with my son, 9 years old. We arrived late on a Saturday night and had a round of tapas with live spanish guitar in the hotel bar, which is not like a hotel bar but a real bar with the best jamon in town. The whole place...

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a couple of nights in May 2016. The location was both good and bad - it is a central location, right of La Rambla, you can walk to many restaurants and it was really close to the metro (a big plus!). However, the street/neighborhood itself was a bit rough - when we returned one...

The center of Barcelona is very easy to walk. The hotel itself was ok,nothing special,but it was decent. You don't have view from the hotel because it surrounded...

The hotel is what it's name says, basic but clean and tidy. The location was great just off La Rambla near the port end so great for exploring. Having said all of that, I think it's probably the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed in! Don't know if it's the guests that were there when we were or if it's just...

The room was too basic, the only thing that kept me from making trouble at the reception was its low price comparing to other options for that weekend. We had a room for 4 and our friends were in a double room which was much better. The shampoos and stuff in the bathroom were a good brand but this was...

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.
