BCN Montjuïc ApartHotel
BCN Montjuïc Aparthotel, Barcelona is tucked away down a quiet street just behind Gran Via Corts Catalanes. It offers an impressive array of facilities, including a pool, sauna and fitness centre. Considering these facilities, its prices are impressively low.

The hotel is located at the foot of Montjuïc - this large hill looks down over the city of Barcelona and is covered in ornate floral gardens and benches to sit and watch the world go by. The hotel is also situated a 5 - 10 minute walk from Plaça España - the home of both the Fira Barcelona conference centre and Barcelona Palace.
