We stayed here one night before a cruise. The hotel is a bit dated and the staff not real friendly, but the breakfast buffet was pretty good. The location was nice in that you can explore Barcelona on foot, and it's close to the port. For our overnight use it sufficed- but I wouldn't book it for a romantic get...

I here because of the location. The staff was okay. They were very much in to talking among themselves at the front desk. My room key did not work when I placed it into the key slot in the room that turns the lights on. The person at reception implied that I did not know where to put the key!...

Having looked around online we found this to be a value for money stay with breakfast included in a location that was handy for the airport (cheaply via train and metro using a T10 card) and also for local attractions such as La Rambla, the port and Montjuic (via the funicular railway that was accessible from a metro station just...

We stayed at this hotel at the end of a very enjoyable Mediterranean cruise and we were pleasantly surprised given some of the negative publicity we had read about on Tripadvisor previously. Our room, although not large, was clean,comfortable and lacked for nothing. The hotel is conveniently close to the cruise liner docks and wonderfully situated for easy access to...

The first room I was in was not up to standard at all, the furniture was coming apart, the shower did not work and the air-conditioning unit was leaking all over the floor.

We booked our honeymoon in Barcelona and decided to stay at the Tryp Apolo. The location seemed perfect and the photos on the site made the rooms look amazing. Unfortunately, the photos are not accurate. The room was dank, with carpet stains, poor lighting and flimsy bed. We asked for a room upgrade, noting that we were on our honeymoon...

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
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.
