Great welcome, staff spoke very good English which was so helpful. Rooms are clean and well appointed, lovely white cotton sheets. Would certainly use this hotel again when we return to Barceloba which we plan to do.

This Hotel is very well named, you get what it is called. The location is great just off the bottom of Ramblas however I would not walk to the hotel on my own in the dark though through the streets off Ramblas. All the attention to detail in this hotel has been put in the concierge, lobby & bar -...

This is exactly the kind of hotel we needed for our low cost city break to Barcelona. It's stylish, has comfy beds and decent free wifi which comes in very handy when trying to plan where to go in the morning before you head out into Barcelona. It's very close to Las Ramblas, the harbour and Drassanes Metro station. The...

This was a selection based on the reviews, location and my visit to the Chic and Basic in Amsterdam. Myself and a friend were going on a cruise on the Tuesday, we arrived on the Sunday evening and it was the perfect place. If you are going on a cruise all you need to do is walk down towards the...

We fond this hotel by any hazard because we had big problems with the Hotel Acta Mimic. And the staff at this hotel did everything to help us out of our situation, extremely helpful, extremely friendly. The location was perfect for us: very close to the Ramblas (3 Min. walk) and just a short stroll to the harbour bus (for...

My husband and I checked into this hotel following a cruise from the United States. Our room was not ready as it was early in the morning. We chose to wait in the lobby as my husband was not feeling well. We got into our room on the 6th floor about 2:00. The room was basic and very yellow. The...

Centrally located within easy walking of main tourist areas and also close to the port, beach (15 mins walk) and Passeig de Gracia which has a more upmarket range of shops. The hotel itself does exactly what it say on the tin, it's a retro type feel with simple touches that elevate above your average, mid range tourist hotel. The...

The hotel is right next to Drassles metro and has very good access to most of the sites. It's very next to Las rambles and walkable by foot. You can also walk to Le Barceloneta beach by foot in 20-25 mins. So location is perfect. We stayed in Room 114 which is a very standard twin. The room is decently...

We chose this hotel because of its location, close to the Ramblas and the cruise terminal, as well as the kitchenette in the room. However, there was no pots and pans provided. There were only a kettle, two cups and two forks. We asked the front desk but they never took care of our request. So we only used the...

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.
