The hotel is situated a couple of streets away from Las Ramblas, a short stroll from the port and right by a metro stop so in a great position. It took about 25 mins by taxi from the airport which cost about €28. Check in was pleasant and easy. The hotel on closer inspection is a little tired, and if...

Everything about this place is uninspired--its decor, its staff, its services. Had a friend not informed me that breakfast was included with the price of the room, I never would have known since the front desk advised her of breakfast during check in but not me. Breakfast, as it turned out, was probably the best thing about staying here so...

This hotel is ideally situated for exploring Barcelona. We walked to all the tourist sites . 5 mins from the main shopping areas. 20 mins in a taxi from the airport. Our room was large and light. There were really good blackout curtains , which I like . The tv had a few English channels on offer too, not just...

Generally OK. Rooms are a little tired (torn bed sheet, regretting in bathroom needed) some staff a little rude (a woman with glasses in the breakfast room-left myself and an American lady quite speechless with her abruptness). Staying in summer with no working air con could be uncomfortable. Best feature- location.

Mediocre. Location’s convenient but not in the least bit picturesque or pleasant (though did appreciate easy access to Montjuic’s funicular). Internet, and this is hard to believe, is almost as slow as the cruise ship I came from! It’s free, but useless Internet, even when it’s free, still works out to being useless.

Good location, nicely off La Rambla, a metro station 40 meters from front door (to four directions plus funicular to Montjiuch). Friendly staff - they arranged rooms for family as requested with family coded door keys. Good cleaning and very nice buffet breakfast to start a day in Barcelona. Wlan internet included - not very fast but still.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
