The location is great, the hotel itself is very clean and tidy, great place to stay! The staff was also very helpful. The hotel is 15 minutes away from La Rambla and walking distance to Plaza Espana. We were able to walk almost anywhere, there are 2 close metro stations as well.

The location is excellent and very close to the city centre and anywhere else I wanted to visit. Everything was clean and nice and the staff was kind, helpful and friendly. The facilities look good and in order for a good value. All in all, I have enjoyed my stay and might return in the future! However, a major downside...

Very nice rooms, great service, excellent location. If someone looks for a quality of hotel with reasonable prices- good place to recommend. The moritz beer fabrik around the corner. Breakfast in 365, dinner in city center and supper in moritz- that worked very good. Brewery Garage- also next to; very nice and local place to be and to drik good...

We just spent 1 night and it was easy to find driving through the the main part of the city. Everything is in walking distance and easy to get around and reasonably priced. Rooms are nothing special however modern and clean. Beds were comfortable. If I return we will be back.

Hotel Centric is a Nice,modern hotel. Some interesting places can be reached on foot, but the Subway is also very nearby. Staff is very friendly. The room was pleasant enough. There was Some streetnoice, but that is to be expected when you are staying in the middle of a big town. Good restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood.

I was so pleased with my choice of accommodation. The standard of Hostal Centric is definitely 3 star plus, however beware, there is no breakfast room. This is probably the reason why they call themselves "hostal" rather than hotel, but then a short walk away are numerous cafes with breakfast menus for a few euros, so it wasn't at all...

The hotel was very nice, modern and clean. The room we had was spacious. Good price for students like me or for those who have tight budget. It is close and in the middle of every attractions, sure other places we had to walk 30 minutes or more but it didn't seem very far as we got to see more...

Exellent location, very clean hotel and friendly and helpful staff. Price was reasonable for low budjet. Very quiet, sounds of the street didn't reach the room at all. I do warmly recommend this hotel.

If you're looking for good quality, great value accommodation in the heart if the city then this is the place! The hotel is located in a fairly quiet street just 10 minutes walk from La Rambla and only 5 minutes from the Metro stations of either Universitat or Urgell. We came in from the airport via the Rodalies train, changing...

Conveniently located to the L'Eixample District of Barcelona and less than two blocks from the subway (metro) about equal distance from the Ugell and Universitat stations. The street that Hostal Centric is on has a quiet neighborhood feel to it. I felt safe walking around even late night. We were within walking distance of most things we were interested in...

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.
