Fodor's Review

The Montecarlo makes a good first impression: an ornate, columned entrance takes you from La Rambla through a grand marble hall, to a sumptuous reception room with a dark-wood Art Nouveau ceiling. Guest rooms are modern and well-lit, with white walls and crisp bedding. Best accommodations are the quiet rooms in the back of the building, overlooking the intimate palm-shaded jardín romántico ("romantic garden") of the Ateneu Barcelonès, Barcelona's literary club

and library.

Mercure now the Hotel Montecarlo

Just returned from a weekend at the newly named Hotel Montecarlo and enjoyed our stay immensely. Clean, helpful staff and warm atmosphere make this hotel memorable. Rooms with jaccuzzi bath were 168 Euros (March 2002) which we felt was fair. Although rooms are not tremendous, they were very comfortable, with hospital type movable beds, and large, marble walls and floor bathroom. Our first room overlooked the Rambla, but even with double pane glass,

noise on the Ramblas (even at 4AM) penetrated our sleep. The staff moved us without any complaint and we spent the rest of our stay in a room overlooking a lovely courtyard that was extremely peaceful. Excellent breakfast buffet but we thought for 12 Euros it was expensive. Opted for breakfast in the nearby market, Boqueria, where the locals go at a fraction of the cost (highly recommended) If the pace of the Rambla gets overbearing, nearby trains and buses can whisk you away.
