Bottom Line

The 79-room H10 Montcada is a small upscale boutique located in the Gothic Quarter, across the street from the metro and the Barcelona Cathedral. Rooms are modern, spare, and stylish, with wooden floors, brown leather accents, and great amenities such as free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, Nespresso machines, and tons of toiletries. But most are on the small side, and units on lower floors may experience traffic noise and vibrations from the metro. The restaurant serves a varied breakfast buffet in a homey room (for a fee) and the lobby bar has a speakeasy-meets-travel theme that is charming and elegant. The highlight, however, is the beautiful seasonal rooftop terrace, compete with a whirlpool, padded loungers, a bar, and 360-degree views. For a rooftop pool (not just a whirlpool), travelers could consider the slightly pricier Hotel Barcelona Catedral nearby.

Scene

Stylish boutique with elegant travel-themed decor and a gorgeous rooftop area

Housed in a neoclassic building on one of the city's busiest streets, the four-pearl H10 Montcada is a stylish boutique catering to couples and business travelers. The property has chic decor throughout with a mix of speakeasy and travel-inspired touches, including tufted leather couches in burgundy, dark brown, and tan hues, world globes, vintage posters, and white tin ceilings. Wooden floors, tartan prints, and low shelves with books make the lobby warm and cozy, while cow-style upholstery and natural wood coffee tables on metal structures add dashes of style. The lobby bar has a similar feel and decor style, with red and dark brown velvet armchairs, wood wall paneling, glass-and-metal lamps, and a mirrored wall behind the wooden bar. This is a peaceful property well-suited to relaxation, especially on the scenic rooftop terrace complete with loungers, a bar, and a hot tub.

Central location in the Gothic Quarter, within walking distance of most historic attractions

Map of H10 Montcada Boutique Hotel

The H10 Montcada has an ideal location for exploring the city’s main attractions on foot. It sits right on the border of the beautiful Gothic Quarter, home to centuries-old churches, squares, and buildings, and to dozens of restaurants, cafes, and designer boutiques. The Barcelona Cathedral and the Picasso Museum are each a couple of blocks away, and bustling Las Ramblas can be reached on foot in about eight minutes. El Born neighborhood, known for its hopping nightlife and varied dining options, is just a few streets down from the hotel. Ciutadella Park, La Pedrera, Casa Batllo, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the beach are all within a 20-minute walk. Jaume I subway stop is right across the street, which makes getting to attractions a little farther afield (such as Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell) fast, easy, and cheap. The airport is a 20-minute drive from the H10 Montcada Boutique Hotel.

Rooms

Stylish rooms with wooden floors and upscale amenities -- but most are small and some are noisy

This hotel has 79 rooms, all featuring handsome wooden floors and a stylish white and brown color scheme. Rooms are on the small side for the price, and Double Basic units are tiny, with just enough space for a double bed, a small desk, and a closet. However, white walls, mirrored surfaces, and large windows make spaces feel bigger than they really are. Spare, modern decor includes leather armchairs, bed skirts, and nightstands, plus a few natural wood accents. Wall and ceiling moldings, as well as the low-hanging metal lamps, are elegant touches.

In-room amenities are plentiful and upscale, including iPod docks, free Wi-Fi, minibars, wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, Nespresso machines, and safes with power sockets to charge phones and laptops. Electric kettles are available on request. Bathrooms are clean and appealing, with beige marble-style tiles, spacious shower/tub combos, robes, and a wide array of toiletries. Light sleepers may want to request a room facing the rear of the building or on a higher floor, as the hotel is located on a busy road. Lower-floor units may also feel the rumble of the metro, which runs right below the hotel. Some higher floor rooms have excellent city views.

Features

A scenic rooftop terrace, a breakfast room, a lobby bar, a tiny fitness center, and meeting space

The rooftop area is a definitive highlight at H10 Montcada Boutique Hotel. It features a long wooden deck with padded loungers, a small bar, and a whirlpool. Although the deck is only open seasonally, guests can take in the stunning 360-degree city and sea views year-round. A varied breakfast buffet is served every morning (for a fee) in a charming room with comfy seating, but there is no full restaurant on-site. The lobby bar offers drinks and snacks throughout the day and into the evening, and has a selection of books and magazines that guests can borrow during their stay. The hotel also features a tiny fitness room, but it only has two machines, free weights, and a sauna. Meeting space and free Wi-Fi are also available.
