At the beginning my stay got off on the wrong foot but by the end I could not have asked for a better stay in Barcelona!
This particular accommodation is within close proximity to Plaça de Catalunya, as well as an abundance of bus stops and metro stations.
The place I stayed at had a great spot in the Pablenou area, boasting nice cafes and a beach just a short distance away. Its rooms were okay, though some cosmetic repairs were already due.
I had a great time staying at the Barceló Raval on my city break with friends. I didn't understand the complaints about the area; I never felt unsafe at any point. I used my usual street-smarts and I was fine.
This accommodation was a real find! The room far exceeded my expectations and the special teas in the room were a real treat. The staff were an absolute delight - they were so helpful, professional and friendly.
