Better than Trafalgar Square
agree with all the positives of other reviews. if you want to get to the spirit of barcelona, you could not do better than to choose this great value hotel. Placa de la Catalunya is every bit as exciting as Trafalgar Square in London with great balcony views, but I bet you'd never get an equivalent London hotel at this price!!
We arrived into Barecelona by train - conveniantly enough the hotel is situated practically next t the station. At first we were dissapointed with our room as it didn't have a double bed as requested only two singles - but we weren't that bothered as the view over catalunya square was mega and the room was spotless! - the beds were changed every day. The breakfast were also good and staff very helpful and friendly. This hotel is a basic budget hotel but worth every penny.
We booked an extra comfort room but were disappointed with it. Hotel was clean, staff very pleasant and the breakfast was very good, plenty of choice. States T'V's in rooms but only English speaking channel we could get was Eurosport.
Don't book a single room
The single bedrooms are the size of a closet. And especially, made sure you do not book a room that only has an interior window that opens into the enclosed space in the middle of the building. The room gets hot and opening the window lets in horrible smells. It was so bad that the smells woke me at night and took days to get out of my nose.
Room was clean, staff was helpful and pleasant.
Clean with some great views!
A hotel right in the centre of Barcelona life. A 2 minute walk from the airport bus stop in Plaza Catalunya makes this hotel an easy reach.
Some great views over the Plaza Catalunya and the Rambla and a fantastic buffet breakfast.
Perfect Location, Great Room, A little noisy.
Stayed here for 5 nights in January 2004. We were amazed at how well located this hotel is, being right on the corner of catalunya square and at the top of the Ramblas. A perfect location for getting anywhere easily. The hotel is quite modern compared to the ones in the Ramblas so probably has less "character", but this does mean the rooms are clean and sturdy. We had an amazing balcony room with views over the ramblas and catalunya square. The only negative aspect was the noise.
As this is located so centrally there's a lot of traffic, singers/buskers, and general drunken tourists all making lots of noise.
Take your ear-plugs, or just do as we did and drink lots of sangria!
Amazing place for the price (60 euro/night). Highly recommended.
Clean, affordable and personable
Superb. An attractively priced hotel in the perfect location to explore Barcelona. And on the beginning of Las Ramblas! Do it!!!!
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found it to be perfectly placed for exploring the city! We were lucky enough to have a balcony overlooking the Catalunya Square and La Rambla, great for people watching in the evening. Rooms were basic, but very reasonably priced and extremely clean... Highly recommended.
Yankees, stay home
Just back from a week at the Monegal Hotel in Barcelona. Hotel was very nice, moderate priced and on the Plaza Catalunya (center of city). Double decker tour bus was well worth the two day pass we purchased, saw LOTS of wonderful sights. Three years ago the people in Barcelona were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Not so this trip. There was grafitti of 'Yankees Go Home' and a distinct coldness in their attitude when they heard English spoken. They hate our president and their own also, for the war. I would think twice about traveling to Spain while GW is still in office. Plus the Euro is in their favor right now, making everything a little more expensive there than here.
Just to say that the Hotel Monegal in Barcelona is highly recommended. Right at the end of the Ramblas on the Playa Catalunya, this 2-star hotel cost 65 euro/ night (September 03) and was clean and quiet. It's an ideal location to stay in if you want to visit Barcelona, the only caveat would be the lift wasn't working for a brief period of time during our stay and you need to be fit to climb up to the rooms.

... seemed to out of place compared to the wonderfully complete and in our opinion beautiful Nativity fašade. In fact this disjointed nature can probably best sum up our impression of the building following the tour, since the outside is still very much a work in progress. Our guide finished by letting us know that we were all welcome back when the project is expected to be completed in 2026 and we left thinking that it would be a good idea to return, simply to see if they can ...
... after all said and done, we went to Pals, which is on the costa Brava. It's very very beautiful and I played soccer on the beach for the first time. The kids were amazed that I don't ever get to go to the beach, but I told them I am from a place that doesn't have any water like the beach. They had no idea what I was talking about. After we came back from Pals, I started my week with the kids. They didn't have school on monday, because it was ...
... We had a pitiful send off on the train where we both looked like retards tearing up in a carriage full of people just going about there daily business. Ive never been graceful at goodbyes. but one of the great things about travel however is that you can make an absolute fool of yourself wherever you are, because then you move on and no one has any idea you were that person crying on a train during rush hour in barcelona. Unless your like me and go ahead and write about it on your ...
