      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Medium Monegal Barcelona

      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!!

      Brilliant location!


      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.

      Good location


      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!!!!

      Excellent Location!


      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.

      Hotel Monegal


      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.

The spires run to the ground outside the church and a huge arch holds the falling spires over the main entrances, so you can gain access through the time portals into the chapel itself. As you enter the doors there is a myriad of creatures and people welcoming you to the church. Turtles hold the columns aloft and a turkey in one side and chickens on the other are there watching you pass.

Again as we crossed the border though there was no fanfare. This was getting ridiculous really - I'M IN ANOTHER COUNTRY!! But we were a little rewarded because once in Spain, the French no longer reigned supreme and the Spanish delivered their announcements in English as well! How friendly! They were ...

      ... being swallowed in these places. Gaudi not only succeeded in his quest to make it seem like you were at the floor of a great forest, but he used light as one of the elements of construction. As a result, the interior was light and airy, and walls would shine with vibrant colors from the stained class. It was stunning and made you actually want to stay in church.

      After some caffeine to ward off the jet lag, we headed over to Casa Batllo (aka ...

      ... place to relax for a few days, and Vilanova was perfect for us. We decided against staying in Barcelona as parking would be difficult and Vilanova is only 45 mins on the train, and more importantly it was on the coast. The first evening, we went to a beach club overlooking the beach, and enjoyed our sundowners while the sun set in front of us. It would be pretty packed in summer but was nice and relaxed in early September, ...

      How lucky are we! We have arrived unscathed, in good condition and still happy. The journey was uneventful, interesting and very long. Well that is the end of my blog!

      THE GOOD
      We worked out the mystery of duty free shopping (in Adelaide). Wow fantastic prices - although the penalties are stiff if you go over the limit! The man had to tell us gently to put some some of it back on the shelves or we would pay dearly!! Must remember ...
