Jet lag must of really hit me today as I felt so tired and very drained but to finish the day off with a Hot Stone Massage was awesome, I did fall asleep while she was massaging. after massage I went back to my room and Emily had ordered room service and we sat and ate and chatted. I then showered and fell asleep I think around 8pm which is so early as the sun doesn't go down til after 10pm.
Off to Paris tomorrow cant wait!!!!
... We almost have to put some string on Warren as his self-confessed dreadful sense of direction could see him lost in this area, never to be found again.
Barcelona is a key port and many cruise ships come in. We watched one leave and two come in while we were at the beach. Strange to say beach. While there is plenty of good sand, the waves are a little sad, similar to Wynnum.
Finally got to bed around ...
... architect became famous - though the owner of the building was mocked and the building made the butt of many jokes, it is now a local treasure and an architectural wonder. That said, there wasn’t much to see when we got there to find the whole building covered with scaffolding. We continued on and up a steep hill (steep enough that there’d been built outdoor escalators towards Park Guell, another of Gaudi’s projects and the largest in terms ...
... right in front of an Italian sailing ship visiting the port, the Amerigo Vespuci. Following lunch it was the aquarium, and then again by taxi to Barceloneta to take the teleferico to the Mirador at Mont Juic. We had to go up a steel tower probably a hundred feet high, but from there one can see the beaches full of people enjoying the summer sun and Sea. The ride to the Mirador above the port is short and takes about ten minutes, it ...
... We found it on Airbnb. We had a private bedroom and shared a bathroom and kitchen with other guests. Our housekeeper, Maria, greeted us, and helped us squeeze our luggage into the two door elevator. I wish I had taken a picture. We barley squeezed into it. The elevator car was made of wood, with a metal cage surrounding it. You must have the metal cage door and both of the two wooden doors closed for it to operate. It felt like we stepped into the past when we were in ...

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.
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....
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.
