A nice hotel, close to Plac Espanya & Parc Montju
Posted Sep 9, 2016
At first the place seemed far out but once you explore a little you will find Parc Montju on the hill just behind the hotel and the Plac de Espanya and Fount Majic and art gallery are all five minute walk away, the bus from the airport stops almost right outside hotel and there is a metro five mins away. If your feeling fit it is a nice two mile walk from the bottom of las ramblas along La parallel road, back to hotel. There are plenty of small cafes and restaurants close by and the ones on top of the "bullring" at Espanya are reasonable price considering the locaion. It is an aparthotel with most of them private, the "public" rooms are reasonably sized and have a decent sized fridge, the rings and microwave are useful. Could have done with a kettle or a small pan to boil water for coffee but other than that was adequate. Pool at top of building was welcome but could be crowded as it was fairly small, just need to pick your time to visit. No balcony in room but the communal balcony wasn't far away. All in all a very good place to stay for a reasonable price. Staff were great and the room was cleaned very well.
