Montecarlo Review

The Montecarlo makes a good first impression: an ornate, illuminated entrance takes you from the Rambla through a grand marble hall to a sumptuous reception room with a dark-wood Art Nouveau ceiling. Rooms, which vary wildly in size and facilities, are modern and light with white walls and crisp bedding, but they're far more paired down compared to public spaces. Many overlook the Rambla, a debatable bonus depending on your susceptibility to noise. Those seeking quiet should book one of the back rooms overlooking the intimate palm-shaded jardín romántico (literally, "romantic garden") of the Ateneu Barcelonès, Barcelona's literary club and library.
