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.

It’s refurbished since I last stayed there. It’s cozy and nice. Rooms vary in size but hey are well kept and clean. It’s on a noisy street and gets to be noisy at night. But it’s at the heart of Barca, between las Ramblas and...More

If you paid their website price, you did not get your money's worth here. I paid about $70 US per night (around 65% of their website price). I guess that is a good rate for Barcelona, but the rooms are very small and very basic....More

There was no kettle in my room. Can't say about other rooms. However, I think it is standard.
