Every now and then you come across a little gem of a hotel which seems to tick all the right boxes. We stayed 3 nights, and our choice was influenced by the remarks made on Tripadvisor. The staff were very welcoming and on hand to make our stay very enjoyable. The hotel is just off the La Rambla. Our room was at the rear of the hotel with no noise whatsoever. Although it was a bit on the small side it was perfectly adequate for our stay. Comfortable bed and spotlessly clean. Complementary continental breakfast was a perfect was to start the day. Should we return to Barcelona in the future we would not hesitate to return to Hotel Curious, and definitely recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Very quiet rooms at rear of hotel

Dear guest,

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

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 mentioned, Hotel Curious is not a luxury hotel. It is a lovely and cute one-star rated hotel in Barcelona city center. All our rates include a complete and varied breakfast to start the day full of energy.

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

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!

Best regards from Barcelona,

Artur Artigas
Hotel Curious Manager.

This was a very small room, but we were on the 2nd floor at back of hotel and had a lovely very small balcony, but it was nice to open the doors and get fresh air. The AC worked very well, beds were comfortable, bathroom was small and had trouble with shower doors. Sometimes in the night when it is dark, it would be nice to have just a night light in the bathroom so you don't have to turn of the main light, as it would trigger the fan and make a noise. The breakfast was very good, fresh fruit, yoghurt, breads, meats, cheese, cereal etc. We enjoyed a different choice each day, felt for the price that the selection was good enough. The hotel staff really make this hotel what it is. They are by far the most helpful and friendly we have seen in a while. Out the door to the right a 100m walk was Las Ramblas, and a few more minutes walking brought us to both the metro or the buses. So easy to get everywhere with the local transport. Great hotel, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you like quiet, as for a room at the back.

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.

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.

We would like to note that the measures of the rooms are the standard for a one star Hotel, we know that the room measures in United States are larger due to the price per square meter which is cheaper.

As you said, we're next to Las Ramblas, but our neighborhood is called Raval, on the right side of Las Ramblas. In front of us, the Gothic Quarter. A perfect location.

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.

Once again, thank you very much indeed, and we really look forward to welcoming you soon again at Hotel Curious.

Best regards from Barcelona,

Artur Artigas
Hotel Curious Manager

Second stay here, nothing to add. Exactly as described, breakfast, wifi, location, all great. Would definitely recommend. Yes room is small, not a great view out the back, but there's Barcelona outside, how long will you spend in the room?

Stayed: July 2014

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your opinion with other travelers on TripAdvisor! We can't be happier when we read that our guests had a great time with us!

We work daily to improve every single thing we do here: breakfast, the wifi signal, our 24h service at the front desk, the variety of the breakfast, cleaning, social network content and online guest service... and recently we have launched a Barcelona Curious Guide app, for free for all our guests, that I hope that you have enjoyed a lot during your stay with us.

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,

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.
