Stayed at a twin room with a friend in October 2016 for a week. Had the best price offer for that period. This place is absolutely lovely, our room was really comfortable, had a TV, fast wi-fi, a spacious bathroom and air conditioning. The room service did the best job ever, leaving the room behind like new every time. Reception... More

Simple, clean and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Exactly what I wanted and needed. Shared bathrooms quickly filled up in the morning but having a sink in the room made it ok to wash etc, just a bit of a stretch of the bladder! Very satisfied.

We booked a twin room for two. It's actually a bed room made of two separate rooms: one with two single beds, the other with a convertible couch. A TV in both rooms. The AC worked perfectly and silently, the fridge is high enough to put bottles. The safe is new. The bathroom is big, clean, towels looking like brand... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful 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.
