I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend for 4 nights September 2016. Really nice hotel, lovely staff and it was clean. Yes the rooms are small but who cares? Whole point of going Barcelona is to venture out not sit in your room. Towels and bed wasn't changed but it does say when booking that they wont do this... More

I stayed in this property during June 2016. Nice, clean and straightforward, but too expensive for the services that are offered. Good location, friendly personal, good for short stay in the city. The rooms were too small.

I stayed in many hotels in the recent years, but the Melon District PobleSec is the worst of all of them. The bathroom is a small plastic container and the floor is just concrete . The ceiling is also only concrete. We stayed there for 1 day, and that was too long. Those pictures show the room in a very... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights and we loved it! The rooms are very basic but great as all we did was shower and sleep there. Having a shared kitchen with others on the floor was also great as it meant that we could conveniently keep water in the fridge and make our own meals instead of... More

Very tiny rooms, but nicely equiped and very clean. Location is perfect. Subway is very close. There are pYoulenty of nice restaurants and tapas bar when you can go in the night. Go out around 11 pm to get some beers and wonderful pinxtos (1-3 eur per each).

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.
