Montjuic is one of the most important and beautiful areas of Barcelona. Although it is not located in the center of the city it is very close to it, making this area perfect if you are searching for accommodation.
This area is recommended for visitors that on one hand want to avoid the hustle and noise of the city center, but on the other hand still want to be close to action. There are several ways to get from Montjuic to La Rambla or to Plaça d’Espanya. You can take the metro, the public bus or if you feel adventurous you can walk to the center.
Most of the hotels in this area are located on the north part of the Montjuic hill, right next to Parallel street. This area is usually recommended for tourists with children that want to save money on accommodation. Most of the hotels found here are much cheaper compared to the ones in the central area of La Rambla (for additional information – Family-friendly Hotels in Barcelona).
If you want to experience the nightlife of Barcelona this is not a recommended area for you. In this area, there aren’t too many attractions or activity options during the night. This area is definitely worth visiting during the day, when Montjuic becomes a highly busy area and you have many activities to choose from, such as the shopping tour in the largest mall of the Mediterranean sea the Arena Mall, sightseeing from the hill and a wide variety of restaurants for the gourmands.
