The name of the hotel seemed different from our booking which was the Fira Palace. In any event after a little confusion we found the hotel and the check in was efficient and packed full of information - very good! An issue with the cold water in our room led to us asking for a room change. This was actioned... More

In general not bad, quite comfortable and clean. Good service. I suppose I expected more after reading opinion on the official site. The swimming pool was supposed to be free, but it turned out to be extra charge 25 e / day ( not worth the money) . The gym very basically equipped. The breakfast was supposed to be 14... More

Return visit to Barcelona and chose this hotel based on location and review - we were not disappointed. We were greeted warmly by reception and given a large and very comfortable room which had everything we needed for a three night stay. Admittedly we didn't spend much time in the hotel so our experiences were limited to our room and... More

Stayed for a week with my wife in this pleasant hotel adjacent to the Fira Centre (which looks closed). The magic fountains have lost their magic for the time being - broken! As was the case for the Montjuic Funicular! However taxis are available all day outside the Crowne Plaza, but a refreshing walk will get you to all sights.... More

Stayed second week of February 2015, room, staff, service outstanding. Club lounge very good, nice selection of tapas and drinks. The only thing not up to Crowne Plaza standard was the breakfast, in the lounge or downstairs in the restaurant everything was cold, eggs, bacon, potatoes, and pancakes. I know it difficult to maintain hot food on a buffet but... More

Stayed here for a few nights in December and it was great. Room is VERY large and very clean. Strong wifi in the room, nice staff and decent food in the hotel bar area (though I ordered the same thing two nights in a row and each plate was substantially different). Easy access to restaurants and convenience stores for cheap... More

We stayed there for a long weekend and it was worth the trip and the stay. The location was perfect and it was within walking distance of some noteworthy sites. The area is interesting and a bit on the eccentric side. The dancing fountains 3 blocks away were fantastic and was a congregating point once the sun went down. We... More

It's located centrally to all the areas for tourists but ion a quieter street without all the chaos of some other areas. It was about 30 mins to the hotel from the airport in afternoon traffic.

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.
