Room was small but cleverly designed, breakfast very good and the location unbeatable, but the best part of my stay was the staff, full of helpful advice on restaurants, traveling around the city, booking tickets for attractions. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Just arrived. This room is the tiniest room we have ever seen. Nothing like the pics. The double bed is shoved against the wall so I have to climb over my husband to get up. I will be banging my elbow on the wall if I turn over during the night. Forget a bedside table for a clock on either...

We took the Aerobus (recommened) from the airport to the Placa de Catalunya and easily located Hotel Curious down Las Ramblas. Situated in an ideal location for walking around this great city. The staff is helpful and professional. The breakfast had varied choices and was filling. The rooms are a bit small but that is something that shouldn't come as...

My partner and I have just returned from a short stay in Barcelona and we stayed at Hotel Curious. I can't understand how the hotel is only one star, because it's brilliant! Modern facilities, music players in the rooms, good showers with hairdryer, balcony, TV, comfortable beds, great breakfast and the location is superb! Even though it is located on...

This charming hotel is perfectly located just off La Rambla, across from the Gothic Quarter and just up the street from the Boqueria. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and provided excellent restaurant recommendations. The room was very quiet even though we were near the bustling streets.

Great place to stay, didnt feel like a one star hotel. Fab welcome email two days pre-arrival was a nice surprise, with weather and what's on info to set us up. Mateo and his staff were brilliant, no complaints, only praise. 2 mins from las Ramblas. We will be back!

We recently stayed at the Hotel Curious for 3 nights.The location is superb for seeing Barcelona, convenient to many of the more prominent tourist sites. The staff is exceptionally friendly and all are fluent in English. We cannot speak highly enough of how accommodating they were. The setting is quite secure with 24 hour staff presence. The breakfast was good,...

Loved this little 1 star hotel close to Liceu metro, just off La Rambla. Reception staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. The single room is small with window opening onto the tiniest alley I've ever seen. The room has great en-suite with fantastic shower. Very comfortable bed. TV seems to have all Spanish channels only. Lovely music piped into...

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.
