Wow - we're finally here! Landed and took a taxi to our hotel, the H10 Montcada. It was about a 20 - 25 minute ride and our first introduction to the city. First reaction - it looks like southern California. Mountains in the distance, hilly landscape - obviously very Mediterranean looking and feeling.
We got to our hotel and decided to …
... one of the main hubs of the city. At 9:30 in the morning, this large and open plaza seemed sleepy and quiet for the time being. It seems we managed to get our day started before the crowds.
After enjoying a delicious breakfast at a small restaurant on La Rambla, we decided to take a bus tour of the city. We bought our tickets at a kiosk in the Placa, were given two pair of headsets and pointed toward a double-decker bus. Jenny ...
... can't blame me, as she's famous throughout the World, with men journeying from afar to catch only a fleeting glimpse of her beauty, to share a brief moment basking in her vibrancy. Discriminating as to who she sees, not every man who ventures to Barcelona is fortunate enough to nibble on her sweet goodies, let alone have been with her twice, like I have.

I could have done without the museum but Megan really wanted to go so that was cool. We then headed to the main shopping street which is called la roumba.

Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Montcada Hotel Barcelona
Ask for a twin room!
Yes, the double-bed rooms are VERY small! We asked to change rooms to two twin beds, and were much happier. But overall, the hotel decor is modern, the staff are excellent, and yes, the breakfast is superb. We loved the location -- it was great if we wanted to stop back for an hour or so in the midst of our touristing. Would recommend it highly -- as long as you don't get the teeny tiny rooms!
Too small to swing a cat!
Good first impressions - someone to help with our luggage, glass of
cava in the reception area. Then the problems started, when we arrived
up in our room (211). It was tiny, about 4.5metres by 3 metres plus
bathroom. The bed was smallish, and about 1 foot from the wall on one
The hotel was full so we couldnt change rooms and left after 1 night, and went to the 3 star Montblanc further up the same road, which was cheaper (about (113 euros for room per night). Much better room size, we had a great time there, still in same first rate location.
Location of the Montcada hotel is excellent, staff spoke great English
and were very friendly if just not much use. We had checked in just
after 1pm, but still could not accomodate a change of room for us.
Go by all means to the Montcada, but find out the size of room you will
get in advance.
H10 Montcada "Fantastic"
Our first trip to Spain and we stayed at H10 Montcada Hotel for 3 days 2 nights. From the minute we walked through the doors (with a wonderful welcome of a nice chilled Cava) to the minute we left - the reception was very welcoming. Hotel staff very efficient. The hotel is very central and within easy walking distance to a lot of attractions. We are already planning to go back and stay in the same hotel this September!
The Best !
I have just returned from H10 Montcada Hotel and it was just great !
The staff where so helpful & the complimentary carva when we walked in the door was such a nice touch ! We stayed in room 703, it is a corner room and has 3 windows to views cross the city it was a twin room, we had asked for a double but we just pushed the beds together and it was fine.. It was very very hot when we were there so the cool jacuzzi on the roof was fantastic to cool off after a morning of site seeing.....
I will be going back with out a doubt.
Not enough room to swing a cat!
We stayed here one night due to the fact that the hotel we had booked had had a flood and could not accommodate us. We were shown to a room that was so small that it was impossible to unpack a suitcase. The double bed was pushed against the wall and there was no room to move around. We decided this was unacceptable and at first we were told that no other rooms were available - however, when we refused to stay in that room, another room was found for us. After that, we did enjoy our stay, the location was superb for exploring Barier Gottica, and the breakfast was indeed superb, but I agree with the reviewer who felt it was not up to 4 star standard.
We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of May 2003. Very impressed with hotel and staff. Very clean and very friendly. Would definitely recommend it. Very pleasant area on roof for rest and relaxation with hot tub and sunbathing area.
What a Treat!
We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of October 2002 and loved it. Found the staff very helpful. Hotel centrally located - we could walk everywhere. Our room was spacious - especially the bathroom with everything you could wish for - shame about the view though - just the rooftops - never mind. The buffet breakfast was excellent - only needed a small snack during the afternoon to keep us going until dinner.We would recommend it unreservedly.
Great location, but could do better for a four-star hotel
The hotel is almost opposite the Jaume I station, so it's perfect for getting around the city (Plaza Catalunya is about an eight-minute walk away and the Ramblas about five) and it's only three months old, so it looks lovely and clean. Our room was small, but well equipped with a minibar, satellite tv (limited number of stations, though), heating control and some decent bedding. The bed was firm and very comfortable, but the bedsheets weren't changed everyday if that's what you expect from a four-star hotel. The shower was large and powerful, but erratic with hot and warm water. The in-room safe was very useful for storing passports and money. Beware, though, there were very few instructions about how to use anything, including the safe or the phone (no mention of how to contact Reception). You only get one key, so if one of you is in the shower the other one can't get back in until your room mate's free. The breakfast was great. Freshly prepared fruit (pineapple, melon, kiwis, etc.) and tinned fruit, cooked breakfast was limited to bacon, sausages, fried eggs and scrambled eggs), cereals, toast and delicious pastries. The air-conditioning was on in January, so it was a bit nippy if you ended up under a vent. Most of the hotel staff were friendly, but the manager and one male receptionist were not what I would call customer-orientated. I rang to ask about getting a more powerful hairdryer for the room as I have very long hair and wash it every day. I was told that they couldn't do anything as there was nothing wrong with the hairdryer provided. Unfortunately, it took me 40 minutes to blow-dry my hair every morning as a result because they refused to accommodate in any way. (Good luck if you have any problems or requests they're not geared up to serve customers...) Everywhere else I've been to in Europe, they've had a powerful hairdryer available and, if they didn't as in one hotel, they went out and bought one. There's no restaurant, but there is a small cafe/bar area in Reception with newspapers available for you to read. There are lots of places to eat and drink near the hotel anyway, so you certainly won't starve. I wouldn't say it was value for money. I think I'll try somewhere else next time.
Not very impressed
Stayed here for one night. Room was okay, shower fantastic, but the traffic noise was too much. Also the central lobby area seemed to be used by visiting sales reps, rather noisy and not relaxing. Breakfast was good. Location fairly central. Stayed at the Gravina the following night - much better.
Mmmm 3 course breakfast...
Very centrally located, we could walk everywhere! There's no restaurant but with so many restaurants, cafes & bars within a few minutes walking distance, you don't miss it. Just across the street is a metro stop, you can actually feel a faint rumble of the trains in the lower ground floor when having breakfast.
Everything was new, clean & shiny. The shower was very good, bed was okay - maybe a little bit too firm for me and the aircon was good & very quiet.
There was an enormous buffet breakfast, with a wide variety of food, so we could eat enough to keep us going until mid-afternoon, which is good as the Spanish don't eat lunch until about 2pm.
I enjoyed our stay at Montcada & would recommend it to anyone going to Barccelona for either a holiday or business.
