The reception staff was fantastic, and helped us far beyond our expectations. They were always smiling, and gave us the best of tips on what to explore in the city. The two cute girls that work during the daytime were escpecially helpful. Rooms are small, but spacious. A little downside is that the rooms were not cleaned free of charge,... More

This accomodation was a great base to stay, its not in the middle of Barcelona, its not too far away stations, bus stops and about 15 mins walk to the bottom of Las Ramblas. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It is a secure and pleasant place, the room was small and cosy, no frills and unnecessary stuff in... More

I was first time in this hotel. Everything was clean and nice. The kitchen was comfortable and we used it with pleasure. Service was good and it is situated in a good place, you can go to the beach by walk. I advise everyone to stay there.

Me and my wife stayed here during our honeymoon European tour. It was perfect as we were there to explore the city and spend little time at the hotel. Bathrooms are a tad small. Only downside. No breakfast included - didn't bother us as we wanted to try the local cuisine. Great bakery right across the hotel.

Good location, quiet rooms, friendly helpful staff. Location is perfect, close to the old city, close to the metro. Nice restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner all around. At the back of the hotel you find Carrer de Blai, walking area with nice restaurants. Walk up to the harbour, take the stairs up to Mirador del Poble Sec and you... More

The hostel is ok, not outstanding. The location is good, close to the underground. The room is small but acceptable. For the room and amenities the price is not the best... Will definitely return to Barcelona for the 3rd, 4th, 10th, 50th time but probably not to this one.

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.
