El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.

Great service and big rooms, a bit boring decor, feels a little outdated. No bathrobes were available. A fan that sounds all night in the room must have earplugs. The pictures are better on the website than in reality. The breakfast was very good.

Yes, they will store your bags either before check-in or after you have checked out. Just hand them off to the Porter. Super easy!

As far as I can remember, there are no washers and dryers at this hotel. I stayed there for 3-4 days and would recommend this hotel but really don't believe they have washers and dryers
