Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Raco Del Pi Barcelona
Trawled the internet to find a last minute deal for Barcelona and ended up at the Raco Del Pi a bit by default.
The Taxi driver said he couldn't drop us off at the hotel door as it was a pedestrian street but the hotel is just a short 5 minute walk.
After our "welcome" cava drink we were given our room. Placed on the top floor with a small window and a sky light wasn't a problem for us given all the other pluses to this hotel.
It was really centrally located the cathedral just 2 streets away and the nightlife a short stroll. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. If you are looking for a central hotel which is very comfortable and reasonably priced I don't think you can do much better!!
Shame about the showers
Well situated but plenty of problem with the showers which were barely warm. If you were late using them expect them to be cool. Fine in summer but not so nice in a cool February. Despite letting staff know and it being 'fixed' the temperature did not alter at all. It spoilt the stay. The first night we were moved to another hotel as there had been a leak in 'our' room so I believe they do have a boiler/heating/water problem.
This hotel is superbly located - less than five minutes walk from La Rambla and a Metro stop, and just around the corner from the Cathedral.
From this hotel, it is easy to explore all the main sites of the city, and retains a lot of character amid the squares and charm of the gothic quarter. The hotel itself is simple and stylish and, whilst not luxurious, provides everything for the tourist looking for something far beyond the basic. Although the rooms are not the largest, they are well furnished with high standards of cleanliness, hygiene and comfort.
The hot and cold buffet breakfast provides a good choice, with a high level of care taken for the quality and presentation. The service offered in all areas was always prompt and polite. Overall - an excellent base to explore the city.
Fantastic location, fantastic staff
Went to Barcelona for a last minute Christmas break. The H10 Raco Del Pi is in the Gothic Quarter, without doubt the lovliest area of the city. It's a great hotel, lovely rooms (get one that faces the central courtyard if you can), quiet, and the desk staff are wonderful. They all speak perfect English, and are always happy to recommend (and book) restaurants etc. We were only there for 3 nights but felt like we could have stayed for weeks! (P.S. don't bother with Ramblas - it's good as a central point for getting your bearings, but far too touristy and expensive. Stick to the Gothic Quarter, explore the narrow streets and find all the beautiful little squares filled with friendly cafes, restaurants and quirky little shops!)
Good location and competent staff
On our arrival they gave us a small room on 4th floor. The day after we asked and obtained to move to a bigger room on the same floor. Seems like all the rooms on 4th floor have windows at the floor level.
There's a free internet access at the bar. The staff, especially Martin, was kind and competent.
Excellent hotel, central location, goods service, contemporary bedrooms and decent bathrooms. Good value for money.
By the end of our stay we loved this little hotel but we had some reservations initially. It is 2 blocks from the main road on a mainly pedestrian street. Our taxi driver would not or could not drive to the hotel and dropped us two blocks away. The area around the hotel in the Barri Gothic looked unsafe and unsavory. The very friendly and helpful staff assured us that is was safe. It turned out to be safe and a fantastic location of narrow winding streets with historic treasures around every corner. The hotel itself is small but architectually fasanating. We had two rooms, 1 was large 1 was smaller. They weren't the cleanest rooms we've had but were tolerable. A/C was fine when it got going. You need to leave the room key in a slot to work the electric which means you can't run the a/c when you're out of the room.
Included breakfast was good and sociable. For the price, thi was a great bargain. By the time we left, we felt like it was our home. Also, the staff had no problem having a taxi pick us up at the door. I would call ahead to make sure that your taxi can drop you at the door - we may have just had a bad taxi driver.

... share...it was pretty tasty. Overall a great meal!!We then walked around the block to the fountain. The show was pretty awesome to see, although it's meant to be choreographed to music...you couldn't really hear the music, but still it was really cool to see though! There was so many people watching, as this was the first one of the season. We are so amazed with the area we were in too, it was very beautiful and had very cool building surrounding the area. Certainly somewhere ...
... Smell this," she says, shoving some local soap under my nose and treating me to some vague perceptions of burnt crow feathers. And she's ecstatic! "Try this," as we dip tasting sticks into some locally made jam - toe jam, perhaps. Now I'll admit that the local honey is more interesting when infused with lavender (this is, after all, Provence where absolutely everything seems to have a lavender variant - lavender liqueur, anyone? Or how about some lavender-infused salmon ...
... to stay still, because it sometimes feels as if it is not being hold by anything, but the marvelous reason for this is that it is mostly being held up by the outside columns, not by the inside.
What was very interesting to me when arriving to the church was the exaggerated amount of tourists that come to see this building. Of course, it is understandable that for the 3rd most touristic city in the world, its ...
... around taste testing – skewers of olives, peppers and onions doused in a delicious olive oil marinade, a cold seafood salad with fresh prawns and green and red capsicum and a mouth watering dressing, sweet plump dates, some of the best pistachios we’ve ever tasted, cups of fruit salad – we really could have stayed all day and just eaten our way around the market! We also sat at stools and one of the inside tapas / seafood bars, watching the chef expertly grill the ...
Our last full day!! We got up showered stopped at the market for bread cheese and meat and off we went. We jumped on the jump on jump off bus and sat at the top! The view was fantastic and it was very exciting to get away from the strip and go see Barcelona! We saw the beach and immediately realized we should have done this tour on our first day and not the last, Sinisa and I were just plain disappointed in ourselves but hey what can you do we know for next time now.
