Located close to all the main attractions, this is a clean, modern hotel. The rooms are awesome, with comfy beds, black-out curtains & power showers, among many highlights. Avoid the first floor, as late night street noise & early morning arrivals for conferences make for a poor night's sleep. We were moved to the 3rd floor, which was quiet &... More

Fine hotel - built like a tower, with beautiful cool SF/1960s interior design. Really nice location - close to everything, but e bit away from the tourist sell out areas. Recommended. Gin and tonic in the bar was great.

The staff are excellent people, but the hotel was a disappointment . Rooms are too small and sparsely furnished. Bathroom has just a toilet in there without a single top to lay anything on.

very central, pleasant rooms, excellent staff and very good food. It was very " Barcelona!" Fabulous rooftop bar with a 360 degree view of the city , as the hotel is almost circular. There is a rooftop pool, but its more of a paddling pool. although there is a proper pool and gym area inside.

Stayed at the Barcelo. One reason was for going to the Football at Camp Nou, and for the rest of the time exploring the city. Everything the hotel offered was really good.

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.
