“Very overpriced and not that good either”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Stayed here on business for visiting a conference in Barcelona. I booked quite late so prices are high across most hotels in Barcelona due the conference, but over 300 Euros a night for this hotel is daylight robbery. I'd still be questioning whether it was god value for money at 100 Euros per night. Plus I'm amazed they still wanted another 17 Euros for a terrible breakfast - continental buffet that's just about OK, no hot food unless you wait ages for it, and terrible coffee. The final cheek is that to use the safe in the room the hotel want to charge another 5 euros per day for that as well!
The room looks like something out of a 70's XXX movie - small, orange/brown dated decor - two single beds pushed together - sheets and a blanket on each bed. I can't remember the last time I wasn't sleeping under a duvet at a hotel. The bathroom has a shower over the bath - but no bath-fill, only a shower - which worked OK most of the time, except coming in late on my last night the hot water was scalding hot and the cold water was even hotter! Dangerously hot. Reception said they knew about the problem and suggested I ran the taps to clear the hot water out of the cold system - tried it for 10 minutes just ended up with a steamy bathroom and still no cold water.
The location is pretty good, but I'm sure you can find much better in the area for the same or less money. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone - glad to be checking out......

Room Tip: Although the view is terrible the rooms not overlooking the streets are much quieter.

We took A1 bus from the airport to Central Barcelona and found that it stopped in Cataluña square that was only 400m walking distance to the hotel. We had a good size room with air con and clean bathroom. The hotel was also just 600m from the Cathedral and half an hour walk to the port and the beaches.
Breakfast in the hotel costs 17€ each so we did not do that , if you come out of the hotel and turn left you will find several places like Starbucks doing breakfast for 5€ each.
We stayed 3 nights and the hotel restaurant and bar always seemed to be empty so we went out to eat each night,
cheaper and more atmosphere.
Good value for a central location if you don't eat there !

Room Tip: We were facing the man road but were not disturbed by traffic noise

I checked in today and I want to leave. the room is pokey no space around the bed. we booked a double but what we have is 2 singles shoved together. with single bed linen. window looks out at a wall. noisy vents on the roof next to our window meaning it has to stay shut. not proper curtains so the sun will be waking me in the morning. €5 a day for safe takes the Mick. if the receptionist smiled it would be a start but no chance. dreading to think what awaits us at breakfast tomorrow.
don't bother with this hotel. I feel conned out of my hard earned money

The Montblanc hotel is clean and modern in style. We've stayed there twice for short sunny breaks in Barcelona. The staff are helpful and the rooms are spacious, well cleaned and reasonably quiet. The hotel has a small pool which is great for a dip after a hard mornings shopping or exploring. The breakfast buffet has a wide selection and plenty of tables for seating. The hotel is well sited for the main attractions; only five minutes from the main square Place de Catalunya and train station, also airport buses; five minutes from the Ramblas and the Gothic Cathedral ; a handy bike hire store is only 5 mins round the block and the Metro stop is only 3 mins up the road by the Burger King.
It has an ideal location for exploring Barcelona and easy to get to from the airport via the airport bus system.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool seem quieter.

Mont Blanc is ideally situated for the Placa de Catalunya and the Gothic quarter where all the good restaurants are. Good safe parking as you would not want to drive around Barcelona as their public transport system is excellent.

Room clean and good size.
Breakfast is circa €17.50 each but just outside the door turn right and about 30 metres is a good breakfast place for €5.00. Eating out is very inexpensive in this area with great selection

First day ,Sept 15th, took more than 30 minutes to check in. When we went to the room ( rm 121), and opened the bathroom supplies, we got a used comb with lots of hair on it. We brought this to the attention of the concierge, and he asked if we wanted to change rooms which would take more waiting time. We told them we'd stay in the same room, but to please replace the used bathroom supplies and we never got a replacement. Breakfast time, coffee was cold and the toaster was not working. We were told to wait an hour for the electrician. The only plus for this hotel is it's proximity to the center of the city!! Very bad experience here!!!!!
