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.

I was pleasantly surprised at quality of this hotel in the centre of Barcelona for the price I paid. The rooms are clean, modern and functional with private bathroom. There are common kitchens and lounges on each floor and a café on the ground floor. You just need a keycard to access the building 24/7. It's just on Av. Parallel,... More

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...

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.
