Hotel Curious is small in scale and GREAT in service, attitude, and amenities. Thoughtfully providing a guide with restaurant recommendations (that we agreed with). Comfortable beds, good hot showers, good breakfasts. Great location. We were very pleased and would love to stay again.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for taking the time to share your opinion about our little hotel with other travel lovers on TripAdvisor

We really celebrate that you had such a great stay with us.

As you mentioned, Hotel Curious is a boutique hotel in the city center, rated with only one star (we do not have luxuries or spa) but we try to give always the best service, the one we want to receive when we are far from our homes.

As you pointed out, Hotel Curious is right in the city center, so you can visit all the most beautiful places by foot!

Thank you for choosing and trusting us, among so many other hotels in Barcelona. We are so glad you had such a great time that you would like to come back!

Best regards from Barcelona,

Artur Artigas
Hotel Curious Manager

Dear guest,

First of all, we are very thankful that you chose Hotel Curious for your stay in Barcelona, and want to thank you for this wonderful review you left us here on TripAdvisor. Our guests satisfaction has always been our main priority and words like yours make us feel very good and proud of our daily work.

We celebrate that your experience in our place was this great! We really hope to be your home in Barcelona any time you wish!

Our beds, medium-hard texture, are very well-known among our guests. When we chose them, we decided this kind of hard because it is better for the back's health.

Moreover, our staff makes always an effort to make your stay in Barcelona as pleasant as possible and they are always taking care of you.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you once again, and we hope to see you soon!

Best regards from Barcelona,

Artur Artigas
Hotel Curious Manager.

we stayed in this little gem overnight on 19/6/14, heading out on a cruise the next day.we couldn't have picked a nicer hotel to stay,ok it was basic enough but what a friendly bunch of staff.Mateo was on the desk when arrived he took time to mark our map and tell us about his city.Rooms were spotless and tastfully decorated and we had lovely buffet breakfast the next day.the location was the best one minute walk from la rambla,i would highly recommend this hotel,and we cant wait to go back.

Dear guest,

Many thanks for your nice words about our little boutique hotel in Barcelona!

According to your words, we understand that you had a great stay with us and this makes all us very happy and satisfied with the service we give to all our guests.

Hotel Curious is a small hotel located in the city center. It is perfect for short cultural stays in this wonderful city. Our rooms have a right size, we believe. And they are completely equipped with all necessary amenities and any extra can be ordered in the front desk.


Thank you for choosing and trusting us, among so many other hotels in Barcelona. We are so glad you had such a great time that you would like to come back!


Best regards from Barcelona,

The hotel Curious is a small, but very nice hotel - situated in a perfect spot in Barcelona - close to 'everything'. The staff is very very nice and always helpful and the atmosphere is pleasant.
Next time we go to Barcelona, we' ll stay at Hotel Curious - and we won't hesitate recommending it to friends and family.
If you prefer a luxury hotel with bars and lounges and a more impersonal staff ...choose another hotel - if you want a clean, nice and functional hotel in the middle of Barcelona stay at the hotel Curious.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for your nice words about our little boutique hotel in Barcelona!

Reviews like this encourage us to continue working to satisfy our guests every day.

As you mentioned, Hotel Curious is a boutique hotel in the city center, rated with only one star (we do not have luxuries or spa) but we try to give always the best service, the one we want to receive when we are far from our homes. All our rates include a complete and varied breakfast to start the day full of energy.

As you said, cleaning is very important for us, so all our rooms and the whole Hotel itself is cleaned daily.

And our staff... is always willing to help you so do not hesitate to ask us anytime you wish. We're here for this!

Once again, and as we said at the beginning, thank you very much for your great and complete review about Curious. We are so glad you liked our modest little hotel after your stay with us!

All the best from all staff at Hotel Curious,

Artur Artigas
Hotel Curious Manager.

Loved this hotel! Being from America hotel rooms in Europe can be a bit crammed. This hotel room was very efficient with the space. It was not a huge room but was able to fit 2 backpacks and 2 humans comfortably. The bathroom was nice and the shower was spacious enough to shave in! The staff was more than helpful. We ended up staying an extra night! They have breakfast included and it is a pretty nice spread. Will stay here again if I come back to Barcelona!

Hotel Curious is a very small hotel (no gym or restaurant or swimming pool), that's why we are a one star rated hotel. One star does not mean we can't have a lovely design and decor, 24h of good attention of the staff at the front desk or obsession for silence, clean and relax.


Once again, thank you so much for trusting us! We look forward to welcoming you soon again!

We stayed for a week in late June 2014. Located just off LaRambas near the market, gothic centre and metro stations this affordable hotel offers the perfect base for seeing the sites of Barcelona. Very very quiet at night in the rear of the hotel which is perfect to get a good sleep. Staff excellent and the continental breakfast ideal for starting the day. Great value.

Dear Guest,

We are very glad that you had such a great stay with us. That is exactly the most important point: we try to make our guests feel like home. Nice atmosphere, good feelings... our guests satisfaction is the most important!

As you said, Hotel Curious is right off Las Ramblas, behind Boqueria's Market (the city center), only 5 minutes walk from Catalonia and Liceu Metro Station.

All our staff live and love Barcelona, so they know very well the city and can suggest hidden gems, those that you know only if a friend tells you.

We'd like to thank you very much for trusting us, and we really look forward to welcoming you soon again!

Best regards from Barcelona,
