Reding Hotel
Reding Hotel Barcelona is located close to Plaza de la Universitat at the top of Raval. It is well located in terms of its close proximity to many of Barcelona's varied districts. Beyond Universitat, the hotel is in easy walking distance of Gràcia and Eixample - two of Barcelona's most affluent areas.

Raval itself, where the hotel is situated, is an up and coming area that is popular for its culture - with many interesting galleries, museums and independent designer shops.

The hotel is designed simply but classically. The lobby area is small and slightly cold, due to its glass front desk, grey marble floors and blue lighting. However, the front desk staff are friendly and helpful, giving the area the welcoming feel that it needs.
