Well-placed less than a 10-minute walk from Barcelona’s famous La Rambla, the 11-story, cylindrical Barceló Raval brings a touch of modernity to the city’s historic and cultural epicenter. B-Lounge serves tapas like crispy local artichokes deep-fried with garlic as well as a variety of cocktails; hang out here on weekend nights and listen to DJs spin hot beats before continuing the party elsewhere. Open seasonally, the hotel’s 11th floor 360º Terrace wows guests with panoramic city vistas and an outdoor pool. The 186 guestrooms and suites have plush white linens with pops of neon pink or lime green, as well as iPod docking stations, Nespresso machines and free WiFi.
In the Area
Head to Antoni Gaudí’s whimsical Parc Güell to admire his beautiful mosaic creations and hike to the top for sweeping views of Barcelona and, on a clear day, the Mediterranean. When hunger strikes, visit L’Arros Arrosseria, which serves up 36 delicious variations of Spain’s signature dish, paella. Next, stroll along La Rambla, one of Barcelona’s most iconic streets, and stop at the Boqueria Market to sample fresh fruit, vegetables, seafood and meat, or belly up to one of the few tapas bars. And for a dose of culture, the artwork housed in the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya is just as magnificent as the museum’s regal exterior, with Romanesque, Renaissance and Gothic collections of paintings, drawings and sculptures. The museum is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
How to Get There
Short version: It's a lovely hotel in a very cool location. Visit the rooftop bar for a panorama of the entire city. Breakfast is amazing.
Longer version: We were looking for a hotel with a parking in Barcelona, and this was oddly the cheapest option. The parking is a bit of a challenge, but well worth it. Our room was well-equipped, but what was weird was the bathroom - a sliding door was all that separated the toilet from the rest of the room, and the shower was kind of in plain sight. Perfect for couples, not a good idea for business partners.
The rooftop bar is *amazing*. Don't trust them about the "pool," it's a bit of a downer. But do go up there and see *all* of Barcelona in a 360 degree environment.
The hotel is centrally located, you can get to La Rambla in ten minutes and go elsewhere from there.
On a side note... Raval is a strange neighbourhood - adventurous, as my cousin who lives in Barcelona put it. One day, everything is good and well. The next, two men are having an *actual* sword fight. Never a dull moment.
5 night break room ok staff friendly
Breakfast cold and slow to refill, definitely not 4star, still advertise dj tapas Sunday 360 bar not open or pool ,beggars everywhere outside most definitely won't be back
Every time I am at Barcelona, I love to visit my favorite hotel. I have been there on Sumer, but the mesmerizing view on the winter sunset if mesmerizing. It’s a very romantic getaway. Love the vino on the winter time.
Even if you don’t stay at the hotel make sure you take opportunity to visit the roof top bar where you will find some of the best views in Barcelona.
The downstairs bar are surrounding restaurants also give great choices
Stayed for the Christmas market the past few days that I took my girlfriend for her birthds, staff was welcoming and showed us on a map everyone good to go near by, showed us the way to near by landmarks, rooms we’re very modern and comfortable, was also very nice in the evening to have a quiet drink coming in just before going to bed and really made it feed homely
