Pros: The owner is really nice, Wi-Fi abd Air Conditioner worked well, location is good. Cons: Beds were pretty bad, especially the pillows. In our room TV didn't work, but that wasn't problem for us. Over all it was safe and nice to stay in.

The smell is disgusting, not only because of people smoking: there is a lot black mold in the air con, which is very dangerous for the health of course. The pillow smelled like years of greasy hair accumulated. Not only is it is not clean but it's a health hazard. We did not even stayed for the night and we... More

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.
