Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
From up here on Montjuic there views of the city are amazing. Although the building looks old, it was only built in 1929. Go early to avoid the crowds but sunset up here is spectacular.
As usual in Barcelona, watch out for pickpockets.
Probably one of the most convenient and reasonably priced ways to access the Parc de Montjuic is by the Funicular de Montjuic station, accessed from the Paral.lel metro station. This is part of the metro system so if you’ve been making use of the excellent value T10 tickets then this is included in that (Tip: the T10 can be used...
A low profile establishment located in a beautiful area ideal for walking around for hours.
The collection is impressive and beautifully displayed. I particularly liked the explanatory notes helping you navigate through Miro’s artistic life.
If you have enough time, you can dedicate a full day to this place and the surroundings. If not, 2 hours suffice for the museum...
Just chanced past this place walking through the area. All the food is on sticks at the bar - loads of options and you serve yourself. Relaxed atmosphere and when the bill came we were expecting at least double the cost! Two of us were stuffed and had drinks for only €27! Highly recommend!

"Typical and unique "
reviewed 1 week ago by Dionigi V
A little typical place where you can taste unique tapas. I firmly suggest the smoked salmon,yogurt, truffle oil and honey tapa which is amazing. All the tapas are made at the moment with fresh products in a really traditional and particular place full of wine bottles on the shelves and fresh products shown on the "barra". Family management, Tradition and...
Tiny tapas bar/ restaurant on the way from Montjuic Hill. Apart of few seats inside, also five small tables on the sidewalk.
Very friendly staff, with good English. The daily menu surprisingly good and varied. The meals are perfectly seasoned with spices, with some unusually compositions and tastes. Prices not low, but acceptable.
The hotel is a fantastic example of a boutique experience.
The atmosphere is great, staff goes out of the way to help, the recommendations for staff's favourite places are creative and useful. Delicious food on the property - no need to leave for breakfast or brunch, order off the local menu. Super clean room and great fresh linen on a...

Very nice clean hotel. Conference center. Big lobby with nice bar. Rooms are small but adequate - ours seems narrow - same with bath. Comfortable though and the room was carpeted!! We were on the second floor and avoided the elevator which took a while if you needed it. Stairs were just fine. Breakfast bar was fine. We ate at...
Nice hotel, modern equipment, everything works.
The staff is very friendly and helpfull.
Breakfast - without words!!! + 5 *
One of the few hotels that left me without one negative opinion.
It's not the hotels fault about the outside noise...room 106 is very noisy ....the hotel is great for the metro, 15 mins walk to las ramblas...but remember this is only a two star hotel, if you want more, then pay more..... it's very clean, good location, good price...
Lovely hotel. Great views. Close to cruise ship ports! Only down side was they didn't allow us early check in and we arrived from the UK. Otherwise very posh. The restaurant was nice too. We are arriving for a transatlantic cruise so it was very convenient.
