    While hotels in Barcelona are not cheap, especially centrally located ones, I'm really glad I stayed at Hotel Curious. The staff were kind and very helpful. The rooms are small, but comfortable and have all the necessities. I was surprised at just how quiet my room was. Breakfast is a lovely bonus.

    Great stay but bedbug sighting ”

    The space was just fine, the location was right near la Rambla so very central, the staff was delightful and the breakfast was great. The problem is that after I got back from my run, around 11am, I sat on the bed and saw a bedbug sitting next to me. The hotel staff and their expert insisted it wasn’t a bed bug but the exterminator I showed the picture to when I got home said that it definitely is. I didn’t have any bites and it’s weird for a bed bug to be out at 11am but I am suitably horrified and terrified that I brought home bugs or eggs. Honestly, with any hotel there’s a reasonable risk of bed bugs. The best thing you can do is keep your stuff off the floor, in the bath/shower if possible, and throw everything away if you think you might have them. Ugh!!

    Great location ”

    Pros The staff member who checked us in was very friendly, polite and helpful. The staff at breakfast were polite and friendly. The location not far from Plaça Cataluna was very convenient because that is the drop off/pick up area for the airport buses. The room we chose was the cheapest (economy) room. It was small but with a balcony. And it was exactly what we wanted : a base from which to explore Barcelona. The room was clean and the bathroom was absolutely fine. Breakfast was good. Not an amazing selection but we were happy with it. Con The only criticism was that the TV has very few tv channels and there was no access to international news channels. But there was WiFi which meant a news addict like me wasn’t kept in the dark.

    Sad, i really liked hotel vibes on agoda so I picked here but they don’t provide any basic rinse, soap or body shower gel. Room/bathroom are very small but water pressure is strong enough. No bin in the room. Plus room is too stuffy without AC. Probably its because of the room size.

    A strategically located 1-2 star hotel”

    Spent three nights here in a triple room with my parents in early May 2017. The hotel's room is pricey for a 1-2 star hotel but considered reasonable if compared with hotels around the area due to its strategic location (close proximity to Mercado de la Boqueria, Metro stn, Carrefour, Cathedral de Barcelona and walking distance to the water front). Although the room is not spacious (with very little space to walk around after you open three luggage bags) but some rooms come with bathtub and small balcony (like ours) which offers view of the alley. The journey thru/fro airport is app. 30 minutes and cost around 30-40 Euro/way. I would recommend this hotel to all travellers as the location is ideal for all.

    The hotel is in a great location and the staff, especially Mateo, was very nice and welcoming. The hotel itself is very basic but my room had a cute little balcony. Using the shower causes water to go all over the bathroom, as the shower head is a bit rogue and there is only half a shower door (this is by design). Honestly, I had no real issues with the hotel until I found something crawling on my breakfast croissant. THANK GOD I tore a piece with my hand instead of biting into the croissant because that thing would have been in my mouth. I informed the front desk. He was genuinely shocked. I left and had breakfast at the airport so not sure what was done with the remaining food

    Great budget hotel at the heart of the city”

    Just only steps away from the centre of La Rambla street, literally at the back of the food market. Hotel room is adequate and clean for the money and reception staffs (Karin and Mateo) were extremely helpful. Breakfast was continental but abundant, good to start the day. We had 2 rooms at 2 different floors. Noise could be a slight problem as noise from the street permeated through the walls coupled with some noise from other guests within the other rooms.
