Barceló Raval

Rambla del Raval 17–21, Barcelona, Catalonia, 08001, Spain

For lodgings with an edgy, contemporary sense of design, at reasonable rates, in one of Barcelona's most colorful neighborhoods, this is a welcome addition to the city's hotel scene. The lobby has polished black stone floors and tables, with splashes of red in the armchairs and banquettes, and very subdued lighting; rooms have modish white furniture and high-end gadgets like espresso machines, iPod docks, Internet-capable TVs, drapes that open and close on remote command. There are connecting rooms available, for families. The upper floors on the Mediterranean side of the hotel have sea views, but everyone can enjoy the 360-degree vistas of Barcelona from the rooftop terrace.
