What we are (and aren’t)
We like calm, simplicity, honesty, quality without the frills, welcoming each guest by name… We like to represent the style of Barcelona: Mediterranean, dynamic, diverse, a combination of history and modernity.
Here you won’t find superfluous design, social events, groups, noise… You won’t find large or excessive facilities (we don’t have a restaurant, spa or pool).
We prefer to focus on the most important thing: a boutique hotel with personality, designed for individual travellers, with spacious, impeccable rooms and high quality materials, elegant but not sophisticated, peaceful, where, the second you cross the threshold, you’ll be swept away by the Rambla itself.
Customer service quality without the frills
Excellence in the service: This is where we focus our attention, resources and time. It is also the aspect noted most by our guests in feedback after their stay and the main reason for which the Montecarlo is, and has been for years, one of the most highly rated hotels in Barcelona.
Built in 1910 with a classic, stately style, especially evident on the facade, the building looks spectacular when it is illuminated at night. It started out as the residence of a typical bourgeois family and then became the head office of the newspapers “Las noticias” and “El correo catalán”. In 1945, the owners at that time (the Lleó-Juanola family) transformed it into a hotel.
We have been strict in our maintenance and renovation of the facilities, whilst always keeping within our style: applying constancy, discretion and being highly self-demanding. For example, with each renovation we have reduced the number of rooms to make them more and more spacious.
Breakfast quality without the frills
We serve a buffet from 7 to 11, on the ground floor. The breakfast price is 14 € per person per day
In line with our usual approach, we offer a peaceful atmosphere and use fresh quality produce: from freshly squeezed orange juice to coffee from the best brand which we prepare the way you like it along with freshly made bread and pastries .
Peacefulness quality without the frills
We are on the lively and unique Rambla itself, but as soon as you cross the threshold of the hotel, you will enter into an oasis of calm:
- Double-glazed windows
- Room distribution to facilitate your isolation
- We don’t accept groups and limit the number of children
- Quiet atmosphere in the communal areas
Security quality without the frills
- Security cameras
- Qualified staff
- The communal areas and rooms are exclusively for guests
- Safe in the room
- Visits to the rooms are not permitted, registered guests only
Eating and dining options
We don’t have a restaurant, but you will be staying in the most iconic district of one of the liveliest cities: there are so many options in the surrounding area that you’ll be hard pushed to decide. At the hotel reception we will be happy to help you choose or make a booking.
