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.

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.
I've stayed in a few Barcelona AirBnBs, and this is one of the nicest. Everything is brand new ikea, nice air conditioning, and very clean. I appreciated the wine, too! Thanks Augus!
Agus was incredibly warm and welcoming and made us feel completely at home in our 'home from home'. The apartment is stunning, better than the pictures and we had everything we could have needed - including a lovely bottle of wine and 3 glasses left out for us which was a lovely touch. The hand written manual left out was also brilliant and gave some great advice on the best local bars and restaurants in the area - just a shame we only had 2 nights there and so couldn't even make a dent on all the amazing places suggested. A perfect, modern and luxurious apartment in a perfect location - central and bang in the middle of everything but without feeling surrounded by tourists and the chaos of La Rambla. Thank you Agus and Victoria.
Very nice apartment! Everything was clean and comfortable! The location is very good - just 10 min walk to placa catalunya. Agus was very nice and reachable everytime we needed him! :) First we had some wifi problems but Agus checked them and after one day the wifi worked perfectly! We had a very nice stay in Barcelona!
The flat is awsemone and its really situated in the centre. Agus is very kind and helpful. He provided a lot of usefull informaton. The Best place to live when you want to see Barcelona by a foto :)
