Aparthotel Montjuïc, is located a 5 - 10 minute walk from Plaza Espanya. The large and traffic-filled square is popular amongst both tourists and business people. It is the home of Barcelona's Palace - sitting elegantly at the end of a large tree-lined avenue. Many tourists climb its wide stairs to enjoy views of the Plaza Espanya and of the city.
Plaza Espanya is also home to the Fira Barcelona. This convention centre is one of the largest in Europe. On a daily basis it brings business from all over the world to the city. During conference periods it is likely to be harder to book room, so it is worth planning in advance.

Along the way you will pass treasures such as the Miró Museum and the Art Deco style Miramar hotel. At the top of Montjuïc there is a castle where you can walk around the grounds and take in views over looking the entire city.
The hotel is also a 5 - 10 minute walk from Espanya metro station. This will ensure that the majority of the city is within relatively easy reach.
