Nice hotel with small room ( for us big enough, just for overnigt sleeping). Perfect location. Terrace and pool on the roof was great. Kitchen and fridge on the floor was also useful. Staff very friedly. For money I paid was great. For young travelers and not for fancy people :-)

Residencia Melon District at Barcelona is a fantastic place for travelers that search for a modern and well located hotel in Barcelona. It's designed for students but if you are a grew-up travelers like me and my wife, you will also enjoy this hotel. It's located at one block from the Barcelona metro from where you can reach La Rambla... More

Desent location on Av. de Parellel, 5 minutes walk from "Tickets", between Raval and Poble Sec. The room is extremely basic. Not even a pen and a pad, but worst of all was this pronounced earthy smell that indicated insufficient ventilation. I kept the window open but the smell was there all the time. Sun terrace is ok.

Booked and paid for a twin room 2 months in advance as I was travelling to Barcelona with my sister. We had booked for 3 nights, and arrived late on the Friday to be told by an unapologetic man on reception (referred to henceforth as Reception Idiot) that all twin rooms were gone, and that they could only give us...

The room is clean, but I had 2 purchase a bar of soap.Shared kitchen and freezer was something new 2 me, but I'm okay with that. The laundry room was somewhat pricey and not as easy when following the instructions. Mostly surrounded by collage students, but well mannered.Ask 4 an extra blanket because they don't provide heat in any of... More

Me and my friend enjoyed 4 days in Barcelona and decided to book a room at Melon District Poble Sec. Its location is very convenient- just couple of meters from the metro station. Staff at the reception was very welcoming, provided us with all the information about the city. The only think we couldn´t get was a proper map of... More

Small rooms but in general new property and very good location 3 minutes walk form metro station. Poor breakfast (avoid to include). Friendly staff. A little noisy area due to road works. Good safety due to check control before entering the lift.

I stayed here with my sister for 3 nights, and we're glad we picked it. The rooms and the building itself were very clean, the pool was perfect for the weather (and clean) and security in the building & room was good (no one could get into the building without swipe cards, someone was on the hotel desk 24hours and...

Dont fall for the pictures. I stayed there for 3 nights and was very uncomfortable. Had to buy ear plugs as I could hear a train and if people next door closed their door it would make a serious noise. I have never seen a tiny bathroom. The curtain was sticking to my body whilst showering. I decided not to... More

My partner and I stayed here whilst interrailing and it was ideal. right next to metro stations and only a couple of stops to las rambles. Some nice shops and bars nearby too and fairly cheap. Great for a budget short stay as bathroom is slightly on the small side. Building appears to be student residences during term time so... More
