Stayed for 4 nights between Christmas and New Year. Location is excellent - close to plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants, and shops. Metro and bus stops within a few minutes walk. We had a triple room (with 3 single beds) which was large and very quiet as was at the back of the hotel.

the location is perfect. In the center of town and very quiet. Our room was very clean and airy and the bed was comfortable and warm. it was rainy outside so the location was more important than usual. The personal service really helped us feel at home.

We stayed in one of the apartments, two bedroom, bathroom and livingroom/kitchen. It was spacious and quiet, right next to La Rambla with restaurant, shops and supermarket for food etc. I would definitely stay again.

We arrive to the hotel 12th of November on the afternoon and we stayed for 3 nights. At first glance the hostel was looking great, amazing location (5 minutes walk to Plaza Catalunya) and very friendly service. The next day morning is when we started paying more attention to little things in the room, such as cleanliness, noises and service....

Very well located and clean hotel within walking distance of Las Ramblas and the metro to other attractions. The hotel was clean and eco-friendly. It has the front desk in a small lobby manned at all times and good security - you have to ring a buzzer to get in the hotel. My only complaint is that it had no...

Stayed here for 2 nights with a group of friends in 3 twin rooms. Location is perfect - walking distance to everywhere touristic, near the metro/airport bus, but set on a quiet pedestrianised street. The rooms, and the whole place, are stripped back, clean, modern and basic. That is, basic in a good way: no clutter, no tv, no kettles,...

I shall return here if I ever go back to Barcelona. Superb location - a couple of minutes walk from the central Placa Catalunya, where the bus from the airport drops off passengers heading into central Barcelona - and close to some really good, reasonably priced restaurants. Walk further and you'll find even better ones. The hotel doesn't offer breakfast,...

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.
