My second time here. First time we had a room to the front of the building and the noise, even high up, could disturb a light sleeper. Having read other reviews it seems 'internal' rooms leave a little to be desired. Any where at the back is great as there is no noise and at my stay 2 weeks ago...

Possibly the worst experience of my life. Internal room with no ventilation making it difficult to breathe and no way to cool down the room without opening the front door. The extractor fan in the bathroom would keep coming on in the middle of the night in an attempt to cool the room down. Staff not interested to help and...

Situated between plaza universidad/ catalunya/ la rambla. Only minutes from all main tourist areas, buses, metro. Excellent location for shops, eating out and partying! Close to main gay nightlife! Hotel chic, comfy beds and well maintained! Would definitely use again!

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We were only here for 1night before getting on a cruise. The location was just close enough to Las Ramblas, Catalunya Plaza, and the metro - about a 5-10 minute walk. The room was clean, modern, and served it's purpose. Two elevators ensured no waiting. The bottled water was a bonus. The staff...

We stayed here for one night before heading to the Costa Brava. Rooms are clean and modern, but somewhat sterile. You do get unlimited supply of free bottled water, which is nice. Main issue was terrible service at any price - staff was unfriendly and did not make the slightest effort to help us with the most basic information. You...

Hotel Ciutat Vella is very very well-located; 5 min. walk to reach Plaza Catalunya, 5 min. walk to reach El Raval; next to the Airport Bus stop (Universidad). The lobby communicated a fresh and young atmosphere at the first sight - perhaps a blend between a boutique and a youth hotel. The bedroom was fine, clean and spacious, although it...

Location. Very good, but do not stay in the street facing room! Noise! There is some glass bottle facility in adjecant building and they are starting with sorting at 5 AM. Every morning. And if you somehow oversleep that, cleaning vehicle at 5:15 AM will wake you up. Our room was clean and tidy. It is on the small side...

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.
