Hotel Montecarlo Barcelona
Travel Blogs from Barcelona
Enjoyed a last late breakfast at the cafe/deli by the Darro River. The lovely proprietor gave me a small jar of honey to take home with me but I declined the gift (I didn't think the Australian Custom authorities would be happy with the import).
What a surprisingly endearing city this is - full of character and charm, culture, history, …
Well got up at ripe old 5:45 today to catch the plane to Barcelona. Ugh. Had to wake kids at 6:30- karl was great, Kurt very grumpy. But they rallied, grabbed their backpacks and suitcases and hauled it 12 min walk to the s-bahn toting their own stuff. Kurt complaining the entire way but did it. We got there and couldn't find the ticket machine, …
... hand, I also got to speak with several people who were pro-independence. These were some taxi drivers in Catalunya and also some people I spoke to in Madrid (of course). The argument these people gave me is that Spain is dragging Catalunya down with them, given their hard recession, rising unemployment and diminishing investments. They think that, because Catalunya has the biggest GDP in all of Spain, and is even larger than the average in the EU, they ...
... a quick pass by. It'll be better to see and navigate crowds without backpacks! This was the first place I would say we were like hawks keeping our eyes on the kids til we veered away from the crowds. Our place is a few blocks from the Marcat de Boucaria which looked like an area to go back to! We had arranged with Sabrina to drop our bags off around 12:30 when the cleaning lady was there. It turned out that Sabrina was close by so she dropped by which saved ...

We returned back to our unit hoping to get into Sagrada Familia Cathedral, but unfortunately we could only get into see the cathedral, not get to visit the tower of the cathedral. So we headed back to the Underground and headed for the Port, catching the Funicular then Cable Car up to the ancient ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Montecarlo Barcelona
We had a pleasant stay at the property, and might have rated it somewhat higher except for an unfortunate incident at checkout (more on that later).
Little gem right in the centre of the city
This is a real find, right in the centre of all the action, but once you step into the cool hotel lobby all is calm. Great bedroom with fantastic bathrooms. Staff professional with good suggestions for places to eat and how to best get aournd.
I just spent three wonderful days at this charming small luxury hotel located in the best part of Barcelona ,on Las rambla at 100 metres from Catalunya Square . The room was charming with a fusion of antique and modern furniture with a great large Jacuzzi tub , a large shower and bathroom .
Weekend in Barcelona
Just spent a fantastic four days in Barcelona. Stayed in the Hotel Montecarlo which is situated on the far end of La Ramblas. Brilliant location as tourist info. bus stops and good restaurants all within a stone's throw. Could not fault the hotel, staff were incredibly helpful and the rooms were clean and modern. We stayed in rooms "Sants" which include a jaccuzi bath and adjustible beds, which were the most comfortable I have slept in away from home. We would definitely return to this hotel again, good value and an excellent location in an amazing city! Use the Tourist Bus upstairs for the best views of the architecture, as there is so much at roof top level. The bus visits all the main attractions and you can hop on and off as many times as you want on your ticket.
My brother and I stayed at the Hotel Montecarlo from March 18 till March 20, 2004.
This hotel was perfectly located right in the main shopping area on La Ramblas. The front desk staff spoke English, and were very helpful and friendly. Our twin share room had a minibar, safe, cable tv and a spacious bathroom. Overall, this was one of the best hotels we have stayed in, and we would stay there again without any hesitation.
As a family we have stopped in several hotels in Barcelona, with friends and my daughter we visited the Hotel Montecarlo, what an experience. Complimantary gowns and slippers, wooded floors and up market beds that could be adjusted at the touch of a button a totally modern hotel inside but retaining its culture outside. This hotel has been given three stars, I disagree the price was reasonable and the luxury warranted at least four stars. Staff were polite, breakfast excellent. We shall be stopping there in the future
Nice location, great service.
What a great experience!
We (a group of 4) recently stayed at the Montecarlo and had a wonderful experience! The staff was great from the moment we arrived. Everyone was friendly and when asked about available rooms (other than the ones we reserved), we received incredible rooms with balconies overlooking La Rambla. The rooms were immaculate and were beautifully furnished. The bathtub jacuzzi was great after walking all day. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone. A great staff, an outstanding room and the perfect location. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.
I just love the Montecarlo!! The staff is very friendly and helpful. This hotel is beautiful, very clean, comfortable, and quiet.After a 10 hour ride on the RENFE from Leon to Barcelona I was so happy to see a bed with lots of big white, fluffy pillows and soft linens. Delicious! Stepping into the hydromassage bath sprinkled with sea salts is so soothing after a long day of sight seeing! Terry cloth bathrobes and slippers are also provided.My room had no view outside the windows, but that didn't bother me at all. I wouldn't want a room overlooking the Rambla, since it can get very noisy out there.The Montecarlo is smack in the middle of the Rambla. You can walk to the seaport where you'll find a mall and many seafood restaurants. The Cathedral, the Picasso museum, and La Pedrera are just a few other attractions within walking distance to this wonderful hotel.Check out their website ... for more info and room rates. I was able to get a better price on their website.
Fantastic service outstanding location
This could not have been in a more central location right in the middle of Las Ramblas making it ideal when you want to experience a bit of life then participate in a siesta. Room was excellent with a small lounge area with television, jacussi bath and electronic bed to raise and lower your feet or head. It also has a balcony looking out on to the Ramblas which meant you could watch the world go by when raiding your mini bar but the double double glazing ensured a very silent nights sleep. Service from the staff was impeccable with every need catered to even if it was to press the lift button when you were outside the hotel. I could not give this a better review without doubt a favourite which I will return to again and again!
