Pleasant hotel at the Abbey Square up on the mountain Montserrat. Excellent view, Restaurant with Bib Gourmand i.e. good food for a reasonable price. Buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. We visited off-season and for everybody who wants to combine a bit of contemplation in the beautiful abbey where a boys choir sings every night after verspers with enjoying nature (well marked routes) it is a brilliant place to get away too. After visting Barcelona for three days, two nights at the mountain appeared a perfect short vacation.
In the center of the monastery of Montserrat, facing the cathedral, but it is a normal hotel.Staying at the hotel allows you to enjoy Montserrat also when it is quiet and peaceful- before and after the swarms of tourists.Breakfast O.K. You may drive to the entrance of the hotel to unload or load your baggage, but then you have to find a parking space in the parking lot, which is not so close. Saying that - there is a "train" to take you back from the parking and to it. Parking costs extra.
We just loved this hotel. The rooms were clean and had the most comfortable mattresses. Very clean bathroom and some toiletries. The breakfast was adequate, wish they had had some more fruit options. We visited the Monastery and took the funicular up to the top of the mountain, with spectacular views. The location could not be better, right next to the Monastery, and we got to stay in the "old" rooms. The rooms do not have A/C and it was quite hot in September. We left the window wide open and were able to sleep just fine. It was noisy very early in the morning, a lift truck kept going back and forth.
In the evening, after the tourists left on the last tram down the mountain, the peace was amazing. It is an experience you cannot get on a day trip. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer, since we were catching a cruise ship the next day. The room was neat, clean, and comfortable. After flying from San Diego, peace of the mountain and a beautiful mass refreshed our spirits. We look forward to staying there again, but next time we will stay 2 or 3 days so we can explore the mountain.
The room was quite big. 1. We booked in advance the room with one king-size bed (not 2 beds). Inspite of it we received the 2 beds. 2. You have to use the outside parking about 1km (not the problem but still...)
Clossness to trails and to the church Having a tree block view from window and construction noise that went into night
It was clear that this was a conference/training centre that offered odd nights as a hotel to fill rooms. The dining arrangements were poor (eg. dinner was a buffet served only between 8:30 and 9:00 pm with very limited choice of poor quality.) Thelift was out of action when we checked out. We had hoped to use public transport into Barcelona but the hotel is too isolated for anything other than using a car to be practical.
The location was very convinient,all services we were waiting of offered,pool good evenso closed on the morning, we would have used it since it was summer and we were tired visiting and travelling. There is no air condition in the rooms, the windows could not stay open because of electrical light in front of the balconies.
Setting. Would not like to stay more then one night.
Calm quiet and peaceful setting, hills and mountains and woods around, in a suburb about one kilometer from the highway, close to the mountains and Montserrat abbye, about fourty kilometers or half an hour drive from Barcelona, ask for a room overlooking the swimming pool. If You like the atmosphere of a conference place, maintenance dating back from the 1980's, very much needing restoration, and no good restaurant in about five kilometers, and the nearest historical town about fifteen kilometers away ...
The location is great, ideal for a weekend retreat
The views from the room, and the peaceful surrounding. The bathroom was not well maintained and clean. You can't open a window, as there is no A/C the room was hot during the night.
Nothing. We left after 1 night as we had to return home due to family emergency, but i think we would have moved from this place had we been able to stay in spain Location of hotel is wrong side of mountain to easily visit monastery in montserrat. Difficulty finding hotel.Carpets snd ceilings on 1st floor filthy with evidence of leaks.Painters and work being carried out as you try to find room. Room overwhelmingly hot as there was no air-conditioning or fan provided, therefore unable to sleep at night. No restaurant or food available when we arrived, breakfast very poor. This was the worst experience i have ever had when on holidays.
The staff was friendly. Pool was nice. Hotel was hard to find. Apereance was too blank. Not much things to do, only for sleeping. First room that we got was not cleaned.
The hotel was so quiet. It felt like we had the pool just for us. The mountain in front of the balcony, the sun. You really need a good map, not a GPS to find the hotel. It's not indicated at all, but manageable to find still. The carpet was really old.
Pleasantness and helpfulness of the staff. Excellent food and price. Proximity to Montserrat. Hotel rooms generally need an upgrade. Carpets were stained, tiles missing on balcony, chips in washbasin.
