Historical Traveler Reviews HCC Montblanc Barcelona
Good hotel for the price, and walls are thin yep!
I stayed there 3 days. It's a nice hotel, and the location is very good if you want to visit the city. There were not so many people when I was there so I have not to complain about the noise, but I heard once some people on the room next to mine, and I suppose that in peak period, this must be somewhat noisy.
Walls are thin !!
Nice hotel but walls are thin !!! I was in room 430 and I could hear my neighbours on both side talking, snorring, showering, tv and so on and they were not of the loud type ...One of the guy travelling with me did not experience this problem as he was on the second floor on the other side of the building.Cleaning came back very late around 10 pm.No in-hotel store.If you get a rate with breakfast included, make sure to eat at the hotel because that you eat there or not they will charge you 13 euros for every night. I was even charge on the morning of my departure for a breakfast that open at 7 and we left in taxi at 6 h 30. For that price they provide us with croissant and orange juice ...For ?on the road workers? there's free ADSL Internet in rooms and free Wi-Fi in bar - dinning area in lobby. Make sure you allow your start page to be modified otherwise you will not be able to connect. You can't access secure sites such as ?https? type, the're blocked by their firewall.I would go back but ask for a room in the other part of the hotel.
Stayed for 3 nights. Nice clean hotel in a great location, easy access to all tourist sites. We didn't eat at the restaurant as it seemed expensive and breakfast wasn't included, but there are plenty of restaurants nearby. When we arrived, the room we had been allocated had not been cleaned, but we were re-allocated straight away and that evening reception sent a bottle of Cava on ice to our room as an apology. Great for a winter weekend break.
A great place to stay
We have stayed at the Montblanc twice now and have had no problems. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Breakfast plentiful and good quality including hot dishes. The staff were helpful and child-friendly. Decor was modern and attractive with a strong Gaudi influence. The location is perfect for sightseeing, shopping and feeling part of Barcelona.
Was looking for a 4* but this 3* came recommended and I wasn't disappointed. Very good location, near to Place de Catalunya and the old town. Staff were helpful (better than Tourist Information!) and rooms are a good size. I can also recommend the restaurant. One strange thing - you have to fill the bath with the shower; there was no spout on the taps! Well worth 99 euros a night.
Fantastic hotel, Fantastic location!
I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the hotel Montblanc. It was a great hotel, it is clean, modern, in the best location, being in a road running parallel to the ramblas and leading down to the Marina.
The room was spacious, and clean and the bathroom was close to luxurious. Breakfast was not included and was expensive to add on, but it wasn't really necessary! We would definately return to the Montblanc on any stay in Barcelona.
Very Nice & Spotless.....
The next time we drive into a big city in Europe and do not have a reservation I will look for the tourist office. We had to relocate for one night to this hotel because they were full at the other hotel... This turned out to be reasonably priced a very very clean.... You could pull you car in the hotels garage and not a public one... This made it easy for the next day... The staff was very helpful and friendly... Would stay here again....
Great place and location.
The rooms were very spacious, comfortable and clean. A little noisy if your room is on the busy Via Laietana side. The location is great, close to the Catherdal, Las Ramblas and a lot of interesting sites to see in Barcelona. It is also close to the city tour buses and the lovely Plaza de Catayluna.
The bar and restaurant were quit pricey but this hotel is close to a lot of great restaurant. The staff was a little less than friendly.
Seem to be in a hurry all the time, didn't explain a lot about the hotel or the safe box in your room and if you ask them to help book a Flamenco club, they seem to act as though they really don't want to be bothered, although, they did make the reservations.
We would still highly recommend this hotel, just don't ask the front desk for any additional help.
Great Place to Stay!
Spent 4 fabulous days at the Montblanc in Barcelona in August 2003. The hotel has been recently renovated and shows it - there was not one part of the hotel that showed the slightest hint of sub standard service.
All the rooms have safes and air conditioning, with excellent powerful showers and double glazing that blocked out all noise, not that there was any with the majority of the rooms facing onto the swimming pool terrace which closed at 6pm. Breakfast was plentiful with hot food also available in addition to the continental buffet.
All the staff were multi-lingual and extremely helpful.
The location of the hotel was also brilliant, being just one block away from Playa Catalunya and situated close to the metro.
Couldn't rate this hotel more highly and would definately return.

... There was a stand called City Smart, this had a few different types of Segways. Geoff has been trying to get me to do a segway tour and to say that I’m not keen is an understatement. He was offered a go … and guess who had trouble keeping his balance…not me. No I still don’t want to do a tour on one…I’d probably run over a poor old lady. It was really pleasant to be able to walk around without any real restrictions. ...
... While waiting for it to be time to catch the bus to the airport, we found ourselves a wall in the park and lay in the sun, while the street performers entertained us; all around others had the same idea. It was perfect - until the sun went in and we had to cover ourselves with a coat to be warm enough. At this point we realised we had more in common with rough sleepers than sunbathers, and we headed for the airport, sad to be leaving but glad to be returning in a couple of weeks.
... 2nd time in 2 days (suitcase fell on it yesterday) as it comes loose whilst going through the scanner. I am stifling a laugh as I'm iPad gets swabbed at security for drugs (yep seriously) I last took drugs back in the 80's (just a bit of weed..., did nothing for me) so am fairly confident it will pass which of course it did. We purchase our customary bottles of Veuve Clicquot at duty free for sailaway on Sunday before getting some breakfast. ...
... my host. I highly recommend airbnb in general for a great place to stay whether in Barcelona or elsewhere around the world!

... Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Born in Germany but living and practicing in Chicago for most of his life, I have seen a lot of his work first hand. His Barcelona Pavilion was designed for the 1929 International Exhibition. The detailing and material selections are all my professors talk about in school when they discuss this project. Each of the screws in the window framing is perfectly aligned in an x when viewed, not a single one out ...
