Las ramblas is the most famous street in Barcelona. It goes from ‘La Plaça de Catalunya’ to Columbus monument down in the harbour.
The splits ‘ciutat vella’ district in two: ‘El Raval’ and the Gothic quarter. The street is full of life, day and night, yes we mean it, day and night.
If you are about to book accommodation in this area, we highly recommend the area, but if you are traveling with your family, make sure you choose a Hotel in one of the adjacent streets to avoid the noise at night. Although we have to say that in Las Ramblas street there are very nice Hotels like Le Meridien or the H 1898 that have invested in noise insulation systems that make their rooms completely free of street noise.
So the recommendation is to look at the traveler reviews about noise before book a hotel in Las Ramblas
