It was hard for me to understand why this hotel only has 1 star because for me it deserves so much more. It really is a little gem in Barcelona. I stayed here solo for 6 nights in May. Everyone at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. A huge thank you to Laura, Caryn, Claudio and Mateo. They...

My partner and I have just returned from a short stay in Barcelona and we stayed at Hotel Curious. I can't understand how the hotel is only one star, because it's brilliant! Modern facilities, music players in the rooms, good showers with hairdryer, balcony, TV, comfortable beds, great breakfast and the location is superb! Even though it is located on...

The room is very basic and small, the smallest room I have ever stayed, but it is clean and bed is comfortable. Compared to other hotels I researched, this was the best value. The added bonus was the location, I could walk to most of the attractions. Breakfast was included but I didn't eat there, as I always planned on...

There is absolutely nothing remarkable about this hotel except the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The location is convenient to La Ramblas. The hotel has what you will need but our towels were worn through, there was hanging space but no closet or drawers, and a trash can only in the bathroom. The AC worked fine. Breakfast was ok...

Stayed here 5 nights at the Curious Hotel. Good location. Central to everything. Basic but spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and helpful with a ready smile, especially Mateo. Good value for money. Curious also recommend a selection of local restaurants and bars where you get a small discount with the Curious card. We will return

We recently stayed at Hotel Curious for just a short, two night stay. It was perfect for what we needed. The staff is INCREDIBLY friendly and helpful.

Granted it's been a while since we stayed here (July 2012), but the price could not be beat for this location. We were able to commute easily to all of the sites. The room was small, but clean which is what mattered most for us since we were out for most of the days.

Hotel Curious is a perfect location very close to La Rambla and the metro. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful assisting with directions throughout the city. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Also, they offered a breakfast each morning which was a perfect way to start your day with a small meal and cafe. No complaints!

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.
