Stayed at Hostal Apolo for 5 nights for a city break and it was perfection. The location is very central just 15 minutes walk from central Las Ramblas and the harbour. Or if you're feeling tired from walking all day the metro stop is a 2 minute stroll away ;) The front desk was extremely helpful regarding directions and any... More

Stayed in Barcelona for 2 nights. Love the gothic quarter, so many niche and quint shops. Definitely do a walking tour. This place is like a budget hotel than hostel and there is no social atmosphere here. The building appears to still being renovated but this didn't affect our stay. Double room w shared bathroom was spacious with a sink... More

This place was recommended to us by a friend. Though it says ‘hostel’ in the name, it can be misleading, as this is actually much better than a hostel. I would perhaps classify it as a no-frills budget hotel, as the rooms are cleaned on a daily basis. Not the most stylish place, but for the money this was a... More

I had a cheap, double room with a shared bathroom for my stay at hostel apolo. The room was large, immaculately clean and had a nice television and plenty of power points. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location behind theatre apolo was great. It can be a little noisy, but the pharmacy outside sells earplugs for 60... More

Hostel was nice, good for the price I paid. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and quiet. So easy to get the hotel, two blocks from the Paralel Metro Station. If you have a short budget its a neat place to stay in Barcelona.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful 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.
