Honeymoon

Our experience at Barcelo Raval was excellent. The staff was very attentive throughout the entire stay. Our room was very clean, modern, and comfortable. We loved the view from the 360 deck, atop the building. Also, we enjoyed some wonderful cocktails by the pool. The hotel is in a fantastic location for travelers that love to walk and explore. Also, we didn't have any trouble walking to the bus stop for the airport bus with all over our luggage in tow. I am happy to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Gorgeous hotel in the heart of the city

I liked the fact that the hotel is in the center of the city. All you need to do is to walk to the key places around the hotel. The staff were also nice. In a nutshell, it is the place to be!

Trendy Hotel, Great Service, In the Ghetto

For those of you hoping to find an amazing hotel in an amazing neighborhood, this one fits the bill. However, "amazing neighborhood" is in the eye of the beholder. Great ethnic food all around this place, but it's a little grimey and does not feel as safe as up by La Sagrada Famila and the north end of Las Ramblas. We liked everything about this place, expect for the two twin beds that were pushed together. Make sure to book or request a king/queen size bed #there are only a few available#. The staff is great, and super friend.

Highly recommendable

Great all around! The neighborhood is close enough to the action that you didn't have to walk too far to get to it all. Would stay here again for the value. Also the bartender Katerina is a wonderful joy on the top floor hotel bar.

Anniversary trip

Fantastico!! Except for the ladies of the night endemic to this up and coming area, great food and easy metro access. Super rooftop deck but don't be fooled by pool- it is more of a shallow wishing well that is refreshing but smaller than most hotel hot tubs.

When the wait is long for outdoor restaurants on las ramblas, this area is less congested, cheaper, and more relaxing.
