The hotel was nice, and the rooftop bar was spectacular to have, but our experience with two of the staff members in particular was above and beyond what we expected, and what we experienced for the rest of our trip.

We stayed here for 5 nights and were really happy with our stay. The views are jaw dropping from the top and sitting in the pool overlooking it was great. The hotel itself is very modern and has some quirky bits e.g room numbers lit up on the floor! As for the location, from reading reviews prior to staying it was easy to be very weary of where we walked as people said don't go behind the hotel but we DID and it was completely fine!! Regarding prostitutes yes there are quite a few but about a 10 min walk from the hotel not down the road behind it at all. It seems like the El Raval area gets a really bad name but it's a lovely part of Barcelona we found great bars (Marmalade being our fave) and local supermarkets were handy.
The wifi was fine, couldn't get it on the roof but that was no problem at all we were too focused on the views.
You can leave your luggage there when you check out which was good and there's taxis right outside the hotel (even better!)
Overall it really is a fantastic hotel and the staff are polite and friendly, ignore the comments about it being in a bad area it's really not. Oh and also very close to La Rambla! Would stay here again.

All in all we were impressed with the Barceló Raval.
Its in an obsolutely prime position literally 5 minutes walk from La Rambla and the marina.
The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and being on the 10th floor we had great views of the city.
The rooms are very pod like and you feel you are on the set of space 1999 or something.

We stayed there for 4 nights and overall it was average. The pictures are not a true reflection of the facilities. The pool was really disappointing it was so small and it was always crowded and difficult to find seating. The rooms were a good size but no proper bathrooms.The staff in the bar and restaurant and front desk were all very good and helpful. The streets behind the hotel was less desirable even though the hotel was very central and good for sightseeing.

Room Tip: There was a lot of noise from the rooms next to each other and from the corridors the rooms were cle...

I was wary in staying here after reading reviews of it being in a bad area, and that there was no roof terrace with pool. However I am soo pleased I ignored them! What a fantastic hotel with a fabulous view of the city in a great location. The bed was soo comfortable and the rainfalls shower was soo nice! It was a hotel I can say I felt clean in my whole stay and I am very fussy normally! A definite recommend ( I stayed on the 8th floor - which was fabulous view from my bed!)

Interesting design in all area, nice view from rooftop, a special atmosphere in this hotel. The only thing that i didn't liked is the area between Las ramblas and this hotel. But this was not something so annoying, the hotel is a good/best option for visiting Barcelona again, for me.
