The Location of the Hotel is close to perfect. It's close to the ramblas but far away from
the anoying crowds and traffic. Just a 4 Minutes walk and you are at the Opera Liceu at the
ramblas or a 15 Minutes walk to the port and marina. The Airport Bus is just a 10 Minutes walk as well.
The Staff is very friendly and professional and helpful any time.
The rooms are 70s Style with a Barcelona touch. TV with a lot of major european channels. A big safe for computer and cameras as well. Rooms still very new and perfect room service. Even a Nespresso Machine with 4 cups grand cru a day free of charge.
Breakfast ist extensive. Totilla, Eggs, Mediteranien Vegetables, and a big variety of ham, spanish sausage etc.
The restaurant is very stylish and has a nice atmposphere. The roof top 360 grade Bar which is perfect to
spend a quit hour after a walking the city. Sunbeds, a pool, and a spellbounding view over barcelona.

Stayed at this hotel one night prior to leaving on a cruise.
Loved the design, very original. Service was good. Room was well equiped.Never seen a room like that before.
As others have written, be carefull what road you choose to go to the Ramblas at night.
Didn't try breakfast.

well to the hotel i give 5 stars for me, everything was so amazing, from breakfast, to the rooms and the roof, and the staff, don't dare to make calls from your room, you will be suprised when you'll check out. except that, the bed was so confy, everything was amazing. but the neighborhood was a bit scary and over whelming, people are scary, and the girls that work out there are spooky. but if you look for a good hotel to stay, i truly recommend it. just take taxis :) their waiting out there

Room Tip: ask for a room in the higher floors use the gym use the taxis alot, it's worthy

This hotel is located in a new alternative area... The Raval. Near the hotel you have friendly tascas and litle stores, but you have also some people with strange and some times dangerous look.
The rooms are small but with cool ekea fourniture. The staff could be more helpfull, and they didn't give any try to understand your needs.
The restaurante as very nice ambience, but food is poor. I assedio for a cow dish but they served a porky dish... It was a total desaster! Becarfull if you have some religious ishues.

Barcelo Raval was the reason we chose to go for vacations in Barcelona. As onwers of a small hotel also we recognised the very good job in facilities, amenities and the decoration. Fast wi-fi internet helped us to organize our work and plans. The lighting was relaxing and the view from the 9th floor we stayed was amazing. We think that for approx 120 euros slippers and bathrobes should be included, but anyway the whole concept was excellent. Stuff and mainly Julian helped us for our walk and eating interests. Food in the restaurant was one the best we tryed in the whole town but unfortunately we did not stayed to have some fun which happens every Thursday to Saturday.
