Barceló Raval

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The general upkeep of the hotel room was very disappointing for what is supposed to be a four star hotel. The bathroom door did not slide close, the bath tub had rust (I wore shower shoes to get in) and the overall feel of the room was cramped and did not feel fresh/clean. I would not recommend this hotel to another person.

Hiede was not my favorite hotel . It wasn’t clean , Room was too small and terrible view.

The architecture was interesting. Nothing negative to say about the property

We enjoyed our stay at Barcelo Raval. It is located close to La Rambla which was great. It was clean and well maintained. We liked the breakfast too. The only issue we faced was that we found our room to be too cold and we could not adjust it from our room. We called room service a few times and they tried their best to make it warmer. However, we would have liked it a little bit more warmer. Apart from that, we liked the hotel a lot.

Roof top bar is amazing! The breakfast was decent with plenty to choose from.

Great staff , very friendly responded promptly to any concerns . Location is close to Las Ramblas .

Very nice hotel in a great location. Very close to Las Ramblas and relatively easy walking distance to major attractions. However, the thing that makes this hotel stand out as completely amazing is their rooftop deck and bar. The views for there are as good as or better than the views from any other location in Baracelona!

Good location in walking distance to La Rambla. Friendly staff permitted us to check in at 10:00 AM.

Very nice hotel within walking distance to great shopping and food.

We didn’t like the area. The hotel have good location but it looks like a bad neighborhood. Hotel bar have a grate view of the city. If you can afford to stay in the Barceloneta beach area I totally recommend that.

I enjoyed the view; however, I could've used more shelf space at the sink. The closet should've been accessible to the rest of the room or closer to the door. The desk could be used for shelf space if it were wider.

Good location. Staff professional but not very helpful

Nicely designed but surrounding is very loud. Needed earplugs to sleep.

This hotel had super comfortable beds and pillows, which at 6 months pregnant was the most important thing to me. However, the room was extremely noisy. To the point where there was so much noise I woke up several times every morning with the distinct impression that that noise was from someone having broken into our room and moving around in it. The location is a little sketchy - not dangerous but you see some prostitutes hanging around. It's close to La Rambla, which is good to visit once or twice, but you're probably better off staying in Eixample - it's where it seems most of the good restaurants and bars are and where all the Gaudi buildings are.

Mostly well presented room with my only quibble being the location of the towels. Out of sight, out of mind; so easy to forget to grab one before stepping into the shower.

It's a funky, smoke-stack-shaped hotel in an edgy neighborhood. Minuses first - the rooms have very little storage and the showers in some rooms are in a clear glass enclosure right in the middle of the room. There are no regular windows - there is a door that opens to a funny little "balcony" but it has to be unlocked by the hotel. And the neighborhood is a ten-minute walk to the center of the Barri Gotic and/or the subway. I was traveling with my goddaughter and we had a lot of clothes for a week's stay. The first room had the shower in the middle of the room and absolutely no storage other than 4 hangers in a "closet." no dresser, no built-in drawers. I complained and was moved to a room with a tub/shower (although it was still visible from the bedroom) and slightly more storage. Although technically in the Barri Gotic, it's really in "Raval," an adjacent neighborhood. It's right on a large palm-tree shaded plaza, with a neighborhood feel, but if you're a tourist, you're going to spent at least ten minutes every morning walking somewhere else to get on the subway or start your day. And it's right next to a large concrete open space which echoes with the shouts of kids during the days and teens until about 3 at night. On the plus side, the room was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable, the food was good, the breakfast buffet generous, and the staff very helpful. There's a nice roofdeck with bar, but the "pool" isn't more than a large hot tub, but cold.

Fantastic stay. Very comfortable. Just great. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone

Good location, hip hotel. The only improvement I would suggest is the need for heavier beds, which move at the slightest provocation.

The hotel was excellent arrived late @ night were accommodated with 2 single beds pushed together , I assume due to such late arrival i.e. 1 am , discussed room change with concierg, who informed me the hotel was full booked this evening but feel free to come down next day and request room change , left a note with reception next day did as told left hotel and retuned to a 7 level increase with amazing views of the city and a king size bed was beautiful to return to this kindness , service was impeccable , room was cleaned and reformed everyday , lovely restaurant located in the heart of the city 5/10 mins walk to anywhere, only issue with the hotel was the pool size , more like a cool off pond than a pool but does the job on those hot days, even when leaving , concierge took or bags as we where not flying out till 11 pm that night , and informed us that we could freely use the showers in the gym/sauna area to dredging up at our will , excellent hotel would defiantly stay there again , to visitors to the city highly recommend the grey line bus tour to start off the trip get your bearings and is hop on hop off which is great, mount juic is amazing and defiantly go and relax at the Olympic swimming pool at the top $6 entry well worth it , not often you can say the Olympians swam in this precise pool views are amazing also to boot , unfortunately found the metro and bus service beyond my comprehension, no mater how may times we tried , was an excellent trip hotel was a good choice area was prime and weather was beautiful
