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.

L’appréciation est difficile à donner compte tenu des problèmes que nous avons eu, je vais donc essayer d’être le plus impartial possible.
Nous sommes âgés de 67 et 72 ans nous avons retenu cet appartement car il y avait un ascenseur s’arrêtant dans l’appartement et nous avons bien précisé que c’était pour nous une condition primordiale.
L’ascenseur existait mais ne fonctionnait pas du tout.
Pire, l’escalier de secours n’était probablement pas aux normes européennes, donc en cas d’urgence les secours ne pouvaient pas l’utiliser, et sa descente était dangereuse.
Conséquence, nous utilisions cet appartement comme une chambre d’hôtel, nous partions le matin pour rentrer le soir. Pas question d’y monter des courses pour faire nos repas, prendre l’escalier était un risque. Je ne suis pas invalide je fais 8000 kms de vélo par an).
C’est une société de gestion dont les représentants étaient bien embarrassés par cette situation. Pour notre départ ils se sont chargés de descendre nos bagages, ils sont très commercialement aimables. Nous avons laissé la ½ bouteille de vin faisant parti du pacage commercial car nous n’avons pas mangé à l’appartement.
Gentiment, le directeur nous a proposé de nous faire une ristourne, mais nous nous sommes fiés à un vieil adage qui s’est vérifié : « les promesses n’engagent que ceux qui y croient », ce qui c’est vérifié.
Un drame elle était entièrement en anglais, je ne parle que l’espagnol, le français et le catalan, je pensais que cela serait un atout à Barcelone.
C’est un bel appartement très propre, la wifi fonctionne bien, la TV aussi mais les chaînes sont très réduites. La salle d’eau impeccable mais un lavabo petit et très bas.
Sa localisation est bonne, le quartier est calme.
We had a lovely time staying in this very nice flat, and the only problem was the lift was not working while we were there which made it difficult carrying our luggage up and down the stairs when checking in and checking out. The bed was nice & comfortable as was the other furniture. One night we heard the neighbors, but turned on the fan which masked the noise. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends.
Agus was very professional and the apartment was lovely as described. We got lost finding it (the charming old El Raval streets will turn you in circles!) but he patiently waited for us and had a binder filled with restaurants to visit and places to see. The flat is walkable to all the old city and some of the most fun restaurants in Sant Antoni and Poble Sec (we highly recommend Quimet y Quimet). It's just far enough off the main tourist drag, though, that it's a great place to stay if you want to feel like you actually live in Barcelona. Highly recommended!
Our host wa very helpfull and nice. He had told us a lot about what can we do at the city. The apartment was great as it described at the website. The neighborhood is veery nice and located perfectly!
We had a great weekend staying in Victoria's and Angus' flat. It was cosy, clean and very central, so we could walk anywhere.
The only thing we were not sure about as the tiny lift going straight to the flat (basically as a second entrance) however, the flat can be reached via the main staircase as well, which we would rather recommend to use.
All in all a pleasant experience.
We had a fantastic week at Agus´s place. He is a very nice host and told us everything we needed to know about the flat, the surrounding and which places to see (great communication through WhatsApp). The location couldn’t be better – La Rambla within 5 minutes walking distance, there are also several shops around the corner and just a few steps to the nearest metro station. The place is clean and all the essentials that you need are available in the apartament (really convenient to have a washer&dryer there) - this makes you feel like at home, though in my own flat I don’t have a lift going straight into my hall ;) We can highly recommend Agus and his lovely flat. My friend and I had a wonderful time in Barcelona and would definitely choose this flat again!
Great location, cosy and most importantly clean! Agus was helpful and provided great tips on where to go for food and how to navigate around the city. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here.
