My husband and I stayed for one night at the Hotel Curious before our 11 night Mediterranean cruise on the Disney Magic. We chose it based on good reviews and frankly, I thought the name was cute.
The location is prime, right off La Rambla and by the big food market, there is so much within easy walking distance. The Hotel itself is kind of retro and funky, with a cool design. Free use of their computer. Breakfast was included and was typical for European breakfasts with lots of bread. Rooms were clean and cool looking, with good space usage. The view from the balcony is not good...they tried to put a hanging greenery to block the nasty view of the apartments across but more greenery is needed because you can see the people that live across do not take care of their places.
The bed was extremely hard, which some people may like. It did not do good things for my back, although my husband had no problem with it. I thought the staff was very nice, and spoke English very well. I thought this hotel was a great value and a very, very great location...next time I'm in Barcelona I will be staying there again! I will also be booking it for my clients.
Just something funny...this was my first experience with a European hotel room and it truly stumped us with the room card insertion for electricity, we were very confused at first, lol.
