We stayed here in September 2016. I simply cannot find fault with this hotel. If i am being ultra picky; I would say that the breakfast is on the expensive side but then again, I tend to eat a light breakfast and so never get my "money's worth". If you enjoy a long and substantial breakfast then I expect it...

Right in the centre of Barcelona, right on La Ramblas we lived this hotel. Bedroom clean and comfortable, great spa, great roof top bar and pool. Staff really helpful and breakfast more than adequate. We are not strangers to the city, we found this little gem rather than staying at our usual on the beach. This time of year it's...

Perfect location and beautiful hotel both the decor inside and out. The roof top bar and pool so spectacular and relaxing and then you can walk out the front door into the heart of Barcelona. The staff were all friendly and happy and the service through out was perfect! This is the best place to stay in Barcelona!!!

One of the best hotels I've ever visited. Great courtesy of the staff, very rich breakfast, and rooms full of peace and silence just steps away from the noisy Rambla. Price is high but adequate to the quality of the service.

Fantastic breakfast buffet, really. The lounge and bar are so beautiful, great staff and reception, the spa is fabulous and clean. The room was very nice and surprisingly quiet given the location of the hotel.

Nice roof bar and pool. Smart rooms. Very good service. Lovely cocktails. Eating out is probably best as there is so much close by, but there is nothing wrong with what's available at hotel. It was a business trip but I'd happily stay for a short relaxing break.

Great location, very professional and friendly staff. I had a classic double room, small but cosy. They face a very small back yard, the next building is about 2m away. Even on the 5th floor you can't see the sky. Nothing for claustrophobic guests. The air con didn't seem to work in my room but you fully enjoy the constant...

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.
