El Raval is a neighbourhood in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona, Spain. The area, especially the part closest to the port, was also informally known as Barri Xinès or Barrio Chino, meaning "Chinatown". El Raval is one of the two historical neighborhoods that border La Rambla, the other being the Barri Gòtic, and contains some 50,000 people.
An area historically infamous for its nightlife and cabarets, as well as prostitution and crime, El Raval has changed significantly in recent years and due to its central location has become a minor attraction of Barcelona.
The northern border of the neighborhood is marked by Plaça Catalunya and Plaça Universitat, and the street which connects them, Carrer de Pelai. It ends in the east with La Rambla, and in the west and south, the neighborhood is delimited by Ronda Sant Antoni, Ronda Sant Pau and Avinguda del Paral·lel.
There are a few historical monuments such as the Monastery of Sant Pau del Camp, as well as newer additions such as the Rambla del Raval, and the MACBA (the Contemporary Art Museum of Barcelona) or the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona.
In the southern part of the neighborhood an old wall and gate of the medieval city called Portal de Santa Madrona still exists as part of the Maritime Museum. The Raval is also known for its large statue of a cat by Fernando Botero, located on the Rambla del Raval. The city's most famous market, La Boqueria, is also situated in the Raval.
In the east of the neighbourhood, Antoni Gaudí's Palau Güell is located on the Carrer Nou de la Rambla.

This was a last minute booking so was happy for Kristian to accommodate us. I never met Kristian but he had a friend Myra looking after us who was very helpful as I had to call her a few times for directions. The unit was in a good position, but was very very noisy at night. The main bedroom doesn't have air con and you couldn't leave the doors opening onto the veranda open due to the noise. But this was the only set back with the unit.
Great apartment in central Barcelona! Just as it looked on the photos. The check in process was very smooth and the apartment had all of the amenities we needed and more. The only improvement could have been the shower pressure which I found quite weak. We would recommend to friends!
This place showed exactly as it was advertised. Very clean and enough space for three adults. I was very helpful to have airport transportation thru host and they were waiting for us at the flat. Totally would recommend this flat to friends and stay here again. If I had to find one thing they could change would be to provide more than one set of keys.
Kristian and team was very helpful and made staying at the apartment easy! Great location, great view, clean, easy!
Lovely flat just as described and had no problem being met and getting to the flat. We enjoyed the neighbourhood as it was way less touristy than other parts of Barcelona we visited. More where the locals live.
If there is one drawback it is that it can be a little noisy at night but we were so tired we crashed. It could just be that it is the same all over Barcelona.
Very nice and well furnished apartment. Metro and bus stations are very close. He is very friendly. Thanks for all.
Apt looks and is as advertised, great AC unit too! It was very hot while we were there, so that was a great thing to have. Great location to multiple metro stops which is extremely convenient when trying to get around the city. Only problem I had was communication on day of arrival. I dealt with multiple people trying to check in and that didn't go very smoothly. Wasn't too huge of a deal tho. Note: Check out time is 10am...Don't know how we missed that originally so we had an early morning on day of check out!
