So what is the appeal to El Raval? The area is vibrant, historic, authentic and full of personality. It (email hidden)ly, multi-cultural neighbourhood with a huge variety of tempting cafes, restaurants and bars. The area has also become fashionable being host to a wide variety of art studios, galleries and trendy bookshops, not to mention the imposing MACBA (museum of modern art) and CCCB which is the neighbouring exhibition centre.
Clothes shopping is also a pleasure in El Raval thanks to all the little one-off boutiques that line some of the streets giving you a truly unique shopping experience. Unlike the Eixample with its large branded name designer labels, Raval is where you find the small privately owned shops selling clothes you can't find anywhere else.
El Raval is alive all through the day and night so you will never be without an eatery to entice you in the early hours of the morning!
El Raval offers a central location within walking distance of many of the other popular areas such as the Gothic Quarter and Eixample. The nearest metro stops are on Las Ramblas, Barcelona's most famous street which runs up one side of El Raval.
Staying in El Raval also means that you are situated between two of Barcelona's famous food markets, La Boqueria on Las Ramblas and Mercat Sant Antoni. Both places are worth a visit to stock up on fresh fruit to get you through the day or to sample Spain's delicious chorizo or Jamon Serrano.
In terms of location El Raval gives you good access to many of the city's main attractions which are within walking distance.
Being so close to the centre in Placa Catalunya, bus, train & metro stations are all nearby. There are transport links to every part of the city & beyond. A taxi rank is under a minutes walk & the airport bus about a three minute walk.
The apartment is located in a private building with friendly neighbours, we therefore ask that you respect them, by keeping the noise to a minimum, especially late at night.

Agus was a wonderful person! He allowed us to check in earlier than the required time, he also provided a comprehensive to-do list for us while we were in Barcelona. The flat was spotless and super comfortable! The bed was amazingly soft. The shower worked perfectly. The living room and kitchen area is quite cozy! It actually felt like our home away from home! He also provided us with a delicious bottle of wine on the house! We will for sure be staying here again when we return to Barcelona!
Great trip! Flat immaculate as advertised. Met by Agus on arrival and made to feel very welcome. Overall great holiday, would come again!
Notre arrivée nous a créé un peu d'inquiétude car Agus, avec qui nous avions eu des contacts pour la réservation, n'était pas à Barcelone lors de notre arrivée. Il nous avait laissé les coordonnées d'une amie à contacter lors de notre arrivée pour qu'elle vienne nous ouvrir l'appartement. Malheureusement, nous étions incapable de rejoindre cette personne. On a donc contacté Agus qui nous a dit de se rendre à l'appartement car elle devait être déjà là-bas à nous attendre, ce qui n'était pas le cas. On a attendu et nous avons contacté à nouveau
Agus qui nous a dit de ne pas s'inquiéter qu'elle devait être sur le point d'arriver. Nous avons attendu encore au moins 20 minutes et nous commencions à être inquiets car comme c'était notre première expérience avec airbnb, qu'il était 19h00 et que nous étions avec nos 2 enfants, on se demandait vraiment quoi faire. Finalement la personne est arrivée vraiment désolée de son retard et s'est excusée.
L'autre inconvénient est que l'ascenceur ne fonctionne pas et qu'il faut grimper ses valises jusqu'au 2e étage dans un escalier très exigu, donc à considérer si on n'est pas très en forme. La description de l'appartement mentionne qu'il y a pourtant un ascenceur.
L'appartement correspondait à nos attentes et ressemble à ce qu'on voit sur les photos. Belle décoration et tout ce que nous avions besoin y était, incluant le Wifi pour le grand plaisir de nos enfants. Le quartier n'est pas touristique et on se sent comme un résident de Barcelone. On peut visiter facilement à pied tout ce qui se trouve au centre ville.
Le seul problème est que certaines nuits ont été bruyantes. Comme on nous demande d'être calme pour respecter la tranquilité du voisinage, on croyait que ce serait plus tranquille pour dormir. Le vacarme provenait peut-être de d'autres touristes qui occupaient l'immeuble car les discussions ne semblaient pas en espagnol. Mais ça parlaient et riaient très fort et les portes claquaient aussi très fort en pleine nuit. Ceci n'est pas de la faute de nos hôtes mais les bouchons étaient requis.
À l'exception des inconvénients décrits, l'appartement est très bien.
The apartment had the right dimensions for us 4 girls. Everything was on point: clean and with everything we could ask for. Maybe if you want to cook take a towel with you just to be sure. Agus is a really kind person, he received us and explained us on a map what was interesting to do in the city during our stay. He was always available if you needed something.
The apartment was amazing and Agus was great with his communication and made us feel right at home. He met us at the apartment late at night once we'd landed and gave us some advice on spots for us to visit. Would definitely recommend to family and friends as well as other users on here!
Agus is a great host. He was very accommodating and gave great restaurant reviews for places in the area.
Flat is very well designed and very nice inside.
The neighborhood, El Raval, is a transitioning area that is very international-right in the heat of the action and very walkable to Plaza de Catalunya, Las Ramblas, and El Gotico.
