The roof is awsome, and you can see all of Barcelona from there. Its only a short walk from the Sagrada Familia, and a 10 min... More

We decided to spend as little as possible on an (decent) accomodation, and enjoy beautiful Barecelona to the fullest.This place is a great value for money, we paid €76 for 2 nights for 2 adults, and its central enough to walk everywhere! Beach is less than 10 min away, Sagrada familia is half an hour away, we just loved it.... More

Stay here for 2 nights before boarding Transatlantic voyage to Ft. Lauderdale on October 27, 2013. Found this hotel to be minimalistic, clean, with tiny rooms. Ideal for students and anyone under 25. Not at all suitable for the well seasoned, adult traveler. What a mistake it was for us ... never again!

Pretty basic and the rooms are a little small but really clean. The communal areas are great,especially if you don't want the expense of eating out for every meal. The roof terrace is nice but again, a little small especially if there are a lot of guests in hotel. Really nice staff and free luggage holding service.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 10 days in September of 2013 for the La Merce festival (the best time to be in Barcelona without a doubt). We found the Melon District to be perfect for our needs, lets face it - you get what you pay for. The rooms were small, but perfectly formed. We had a studio... More

I stayed with Melon District for three months during my trimester at a Barcelona university (April-June 2013), and it was the biggest mistake of my entire Study Abroad. Most Melon residents I encountered were American students, many of whom had their accommodation with Melon arranged by their home University, and most of whom spoke very little or no Spanish. The...
