You enter through the bar, provided you arrive before it closes. During the night they have another entrance on the side, which I haven't tried. The man doing the checkin didn't speak any English but I still managed to understand his explanations. The room was small and poorly furnished, just enough to sleep and take a shower. The street wass... More

Although the hostal is well situated and the people nice and helpful so the place would be basically OK, I was not happy with it. I understand that Barcelona is expensive and in high demand, especially in summer, but what I got for the price was: - a 4-person room where it was really difficult to navigate once all 4... More

The access to the hostal is apparently normally through the bar/ restaurant.I had informed the hostal I would be arriving around 11pm, when I arrived the bar was shut. Luckily I had taken down the phone number (as it wasnt very visible) and rang to ask how to get in saying I had a reservation and was standing outside the... More

I arrived late evening on Monday and it was all locked up, after a phone call the owner came very quickly and let me into the room. I was offered a drink and shown to a clean and tidy room. Great location and price. If I was in Barcelona again I would look forward to returning to Hostal Oliveta.

Paral-lel Metro is 3min walk away. When arriving with the metro, go in direction "Sortida de rda. Santa Pau" and at the exit take the "Sortida Fontrodona". You arrive at a little plaza and the hostel is in the second street to the right (between KFC & Burger King). The hostal "reception desk" is IN the restaurant Oliveta after 150... More

The room was cosy and clean and the stuff was very nice and helpful. The hotel offers not expensive, tasty beer and food in the bar. The location is excellent - close to the port (~1 km) and Plaça d'Espanya (~3,5 km).

My friends and I didn't stay here, but we ate at the restaurant below. It's a wonderful place to eat with really great food. The owner and his restaurant staff are friendly and recommended plenty of Spanish food which wouldn't break the wallet. I would recommend the Iberico ham, paella, seafood, and raw fish. Trust me, you'll probably have one... 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.
