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
Never have we experienced such a welcome from a slick hotel, the hotel is impressive however we have been completely blown away by staff and 1st class service, we were surprised and truly felt like vips from the minute we checked in, the lady on reception set the tone of our stay and then the personal greeting by the general manager was exceptional, are room was upgraded and it didn’t disappoint. Cool vibe and great size, plus our favourite brands such as nespresso and the white company we’re a real touch. Having been to Barcelona a few times I really don’t think I would stay anywhere else and would highly recommend!
Great location, modern amenities, friendly staff, excellent food and optimally located near the heart of Barcelona. It has easy access to the beach (10 Euros) taxi ride. There are enough restaurants within a 5 minute walk to satisfy most foodies. The room we booked was a bit small, but met our needs. The 360 degree bar on the roof provided wonderful views of the city and even if you stay somewhere else is accessible, and not to be missed. The pool located in the 360 bar area is very small, so only plan on using it to cool off if at all. We enjoyed our stay, but don't miss the restaurant, we had our best meal there.
Once you step inside the hotel, i only have great words for it. The rooms were modern, the internet was great, the service fantastic... Despite how close it is to the Ramblas, I can't say it has a great location.... I just didn't feel safe walking around the area, and i wish i had known that before i booked.
Good location, not far to La Rambla.. Nice view at the top-11 floor. The swiming pool was Very small, We expected it to be much bigger, couldnt Swim there.
Good beds, fast Wifi.
Expensive breakfast, We ate another place.
Beautiful modern hotel with stunning room in a central location with everything in walking distance. Breakfast had a great selection of healthy options too which made a good change from my usual fry up! Staff were really good, all around very impressed
