Barcelo Raval

Barcelo Raval Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A sexy, modern hotel, the Barcelo Raval has a chic black-and-white lobby (dotted with splashes of color) with funky lighting, Jetson-esque seating, and an interesting ceiling fixture that lends a space-age feel to the hotel. The same vibe continues in the modern rooms, equipped with flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and open bathrooms. But the real highlight of the rooms is the view of the city that is revealed upon drawing back the remote-controlled curtains -- this view can also be enjoyed from the rooftop bar and patio where binoculars and telescopes are set up for extra viewing pleasure. A popular choice among couples, the Raval may not be ideal for some families; the sexy bathrooms are open (aside from a door to the toilet), the rooftop pool is tiny, and although the location is within walking distance of many attractions, the neighborhood is still in the process of gentrification.
Hotel Espana

Hotel Espana Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Located on a quiet side street off Barcelona's main tourist thoroughfare La Rambla, this 1859 building was redesigned as a hotel in the early 20th century by celebrated Modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. A restoration in 2010 kept many of the historic and design features, including a stunning carved stone fireplace in the bar. The striking, contemporary decor gives the hotel a very stylish flair, from the dramatic light fixtures in the common areas to the staircase that snakes up the property. There is also a great food program on the property including a restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Martín Berasategui. A rooftop pool and bar is open in the warmer months. Some nearby hotels have lower rates, but don't offer the same history or style.
Hotel 1898

Hotel 1898 Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Located on a prime piece of Las Ramblas real estate, the Hotel 1898 evokes Spain's opulent late 19th-century past with its architecture and decor. But guests get thoroughly modern pampering, with sterling service, plush rooms, a spa, and fine dining. And unlike other Las Ramblas area hotels such as Casa Camper, Hotel 1898 has not one but two pools: an indoor pool in an atmospheric grotto and a rooftop pool with panoramic Barcelona views. The property is the perfect pick for travelers willing to spend more for historic style and upscale comfort in a location right on the bustling Las Ramblas, near Passeig de Gracia shopping.
Eurostars Ramblas Boqueria

Eurostars Ramblas Boqueria Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Eurostars Ramblas Boqueria is one of the more budget-friendly options from the Eurostars brand. This 55-room hotel has modern and attractive decor with clean lines and wood floors. The color scheme is white, black, red, and grey and feels clean and modern. Rooms are on the small side but do offer wall-mounted flat-screen TVs and minibars. Each room also has a small balcony or terrace. While the central location in El Raval is appealing, amenities are limited. Hotel features include a nice breakfast room, a small TV lounge, and a terrace with sun loungers. This hotel is a good pick for value, design, and cleanliness.
Hotel Hesperia Ramblas

Hotel Hesperia Ramblas Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Hotel Hesperia Ramblas is a medium-sized, mid-range property with a great location and lots of style. Rooms are modern and a bit on the small side. They have a serene vibe, with hardwood floors, nature-inspired murals, and lots of shiny white lacquer throughout. The bathrooms are hit or miss, as some have tiny showers while others offer reasonably large bathtubs. The hotel offers just the necessities in terms of amenities: free Wi-Fi, a breakfast that can be worked into the rate, and a small meeting room. Location is the real draw here, as Las Ramblas is less than two blocks away.
Hotel Arc La Rambla

Hotel Arc La Rambla Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This mid-range hotel has an excellent location on Las Ramblas, near the harbor, Plaza Catalunya, and the Gothic Quarter. It is also less than 350 yards from a metro station. The 98 clean, contemporary rooms are usually affordable for the neighborhood; some have balconies overlooking either Las Ramblas specifically or the El Raval neighborhood in general. Most rooms stay relatively quiet (considering the bustling location), though there have been a few noise complaints and some beds are harder than travelers may like. There's a restaurant serving buffet breakfast (an extra cost for most room reservations) and vending machines for snacks. Perks include free W-Fi and bike rentals. A rooftop terrace offers the opportunity for sunning, but there's no pool. If that's a must, check out another three-pearl hotel nearby: Suites Avenue.
Hotel Gaudi

Hotel Gaudi Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Gaudi fans will likely enjoy the Hotel Gaudí not only for its location opposite Palau Güell, but also for its Gaudi-inspired design details. This basic value hotel in the Raval neighborhood is close to many attractions and several metro stations. Las Ramblas is a quick walk away, as is Maremagnum shopping mall and Plaza Catalunya. The 73 rooms are clean and larger than expected, and some have terraces with incredible rooftop vistas. More stunning views of the city can be spied from the hotel's small rooftop pool and surrounding terrace. The property also features a fitness center, but hardcore gym enthusiasts will likely be disappointed with its small size and few machines. The hotel is mainly geared towards tourists, though business travelers may appreciate the meeting room and availability of computers for guest use.
Hotel Curious

Hotel Curious Rating: 2.5 Pearls

Hotel Curious is a clean and functional hotel in the middle of Barcelona offering small rooms but an excellent value. It's a great option for tourists who need a basic, no-frills place to rest and want to be in the center of much of what Barcelona has to offer, including countless restaurants, cafes, and shops located nearby. The hotel is very close to Las Ramblas and Plaza Catalunya and the beach is a 10-minute bus ride away. All rooms are air-conditioned and offer contemporary furnishings, though they are sparsely decorated. Freebies include buffet breakfast, Wi-Fi, and satellite TV. Room service is available and there is also a bar. Guests can also get massages on-site for an extra cost. There is no parking available at the hotel.
