I was very skeptical when my brother booked the Barbara hotel for me, especially after reading reviews, but the hotel was not as bad as the reviews make it out to be and with a little bit more effort, the hotel could gain a 5 rating. The hotel is very old and the paint work and linen clearly display this,...

Basic rooms but clean and airy. Continental breakfast but gluten free option was available for coeliac hubby when he asked. Fabulous location for exploring Barcelona. Walk to old town and the port. Metro station 3 minute walk. Bus stop round the corner. Definitely recommend this hotel if you just want a few nights as it is quite basic. Staff are...

We spent 4 nights in this hotel. On arrival we were greeted with an upgraded room (as it was my partners birthday) which was a pleasant surprise! The staff were very friendly and accommodating which is all you can ask for! The Room: The room was very clean, fresh bedding, comfortable beds and most importantly - air conditioned! There was...

Felt a little nervous about having booked this hotel after reading some of the reviews but we need not have worried. My husband and I have just returned from a 6 night stay in this hotel and had a great time. The location is perfect. It is minutes away from La Rambla and Barri Gotic, Palau Guell is just round...

The room, services and amenities are really basic and simple; do not expect any conveniences or luxuries. For example the single room I stayed in, was a small box-like room that fitted only the bed. Not much room even to put away the luggage. The room itself and toilet were clean and that was ok. In addition, the breakfast was...

Absolute bargain to stay in this hotel, great location near La Rambles and good service from the reception. Hotel lacks amenities being only 1 star but still very clean rooms and ideal for paying so cheap.

We have had no shower since our arrival, nobody repaired it today and receptions answer was "well it's only another 24 hours". We want to check out now but we have been refused a refund and simply told there's nothing they can do. There is a funny smell in the room and the staff have no customer service skills whatsoever....

This hotel is overpriced and small . The pictures you've seen in the booking website is not what you will get. Everything was wrong in this hotel. Wifi have to restarted every four hours because they said it can only accommodate 200 up address or 200 users and if your unlucky you can't use at all and you have to...

Avoid at all costs. Budget it may be, but the very least you expect is the room you booked! They didn't have one for me even though I had confirmation of my booking a few days earlier. Luckily I had friends staying there, so they squeezed us all in the one room by removing the bed side tables and adding...

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.
