I booked a room and the guest service sent three different e-mails to say that my room was available and to cancel the same room on the same week. After all, they said 'there are no vacancy' and the manager asked to tell me they will not have no room the dates I was wanting.

The location is really good. 20 min walk from Plaça d'Espanya where the first stop for the Aerobus is and about 20 min walk to the main attractions. The rooms are pretty modern and stylish and just big enough. The sound from the other rooms and the street is pretty easy to hear but I stayed on the first floor... More

A really nice hotel, a bit basic but everything you really need. i personally thought the room ize was ok, not massive but not exactly a shoe box. The staff we're very helpful and it was nicely located close to the metro and not too far to walk to the ramblas.

I spent 3 nights here at Hostal Barcelona and loved it! Pure bliss. For a hostal, it has hotel standards in terms of decor and cleanliness. Location wise - excellent - close to the Paral Lel metro, Montjuic and also the city centre. Plus the breakfast is amazing and there's a cool social lounge down below.

We stayed here 6 nights with breakfast. It is a nice, friendly hostel with good location. Rooms are not very big, but they are clean and you get clear towels and clear room every day. Every room has air condition. Breakfast is included in: bread, croissants, cakes, butter, jam, yoghurt, salami, ham, cheese, coffee, tea and fruit juice. I think... More

On checking in we realized that our room was much smaller than the one our friends had but we decided not to change and stay in it. Basic amenities and well located the Hostal is a 15 mins walk to Ramblas and Placa Catalunya and has... More

Bed is very uncomfortable, pillow is hard and connected for two people together, room size is tiny tiny, hardly place to walk around. In the... More

The hotel was quite as described although room was a little small than expected. Window led to the internal shaft so anyone who talked could be heard. Nonetheless, the hostal in general and the room were very very clean which is a plus. The breakfast is quite normal with toast, yogurt, fruit and cereal but is enough to keep you... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
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.
