Travel by Aerobus (4.25 euros) from the airport to Pl. Catalunya and it's less than a five minute walk to the hotel.
The beautiful Monte Carlo Hotel is cool and inviting after the crowds of La Rambla.
The reception staff are the most helpful and friendly you will ever meet.
We stayed on the 31st May in a standard room overlooking a small garden and we were pleasantly surprised how spacious and modern it was with a jacuzzi bath and electric adjustable bed. No need to ask for extra pillows for once.
After our cruise we stayed again on the 6th June. This time in a superior room. We requested a balcony overlooking La Rambla and were lucky enough to get it. I couldn't understand the comment that one reviewer made that it was noisy. There are two sets of doors and once they are closed there is absolutely no outside noise. The superior room had a large round jucuzzi and the same 6' wide very comfortable beds as the standard. The room is just larger and a little more luxurious.
As there is no evening dining we went to The Attic Restaurant a few doors away. The decor and food are excellent and not too expensive. We had the veal fillets and they were delicious. (Look at the photos of each meal at the top of the menu if you can't choose). The house rose wine was reasonably priced and very nice. I recommend booking a table at weekends as it gets busy.
Pl. Catalunya has all the city bus tours and El Cortez Ingles department store and at the lower end of La Ramblas across from the Colombus statue is a bridge leading to Mare Magnum shopping centre with some nice cafes.
Other places of interest as well as the Cathedral and Football Stadium are Pl Espanya, The Fountains of Monjuic and Tibidabo. if you don't want to take a tour the Red and Green line Metro will take you to most of the sites and a T10 (zone 1) ticket will cost 7.70 euros.
