We had a coffee here a couple of times. One hot latte espresso grande 3.50 Euro. Good comfortable viewing area both inside and outside. This cafe is situated next to the marina and ferry port, therefore plenty to see.

The coffee is great! I am a fan of the latte coffee! Mixed with a bit of vanilla flavor and cinnamon, makes a great way to start the day! Recommend the place!

There are many places that sell much better coffee than the standardised Starbucks but their hot chocolate and/or frappacinos are good and what is better, you can use the toilets-an input and an output so to speak. The Starbucks on Pelai off the Placa de Catalunya was much cleaner than the one on the Ramblas-and with pleasant service.

This cafe is run by nice friendly staff. Prices are cheaper than I'm used to and there was a wide range to choose from. The cafe itself could be doing with a clean, staff should go round more regularly to clear up and sweep the floors.

It is always nice to find a known name in a new place... I normally don't go for Starbucks but the iced americano was great overlooking an amazing view of Barcelona PORT. My step daughter fixed for the trip..

What a disappointment at Starbucks in La Rambla facing Citadine hotel. Food hygiene is always a priority in any outlet and I am used to the consistent quality that I find in all the Starbucks that I go to from China to Dubai to Beirut to Paris... And many more that I go to for my favourite coffee and snacks... More

As you would expect from this worldwide brand the premises were clean, the service was good by well trained friendly staff. When you visit Starbucks you always know what you will get, the coffee was particularly good

Nice staff. The place was 20% full wit 3 staff but most table were full of garbage I had to clean one myself with wet tissue as it was sticky. I stayed over one hour and still no staff to come to clean. Not at all Starbucks standard

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
