The hotel is situated in a quiet district with 2 metro stations, tram and bus halters nearby, If somebody cares- there are some funeral parlours opposite the hotel building but it was not a problem for us. It took us about 20-25 minutes walk to get to the beach. Our room was very small bur cosy with all the necessaries. The fidge was in the full-equiped kitchen on the floor. But we usually took a breafast at the cafe on the ground floor. There is a small swimming pool with sunbathe area at the roof of the hotel building read hotel review

Great hotel for a cheap price, obviously you have to consider that it's not a 5-star hotel. The rooms are very small but clean and modern! The pool on the roof is crazy! Good subway connections with the Stations Marina and Bogatell. I can only recommend the hotel, only the restaurant isn't recommendable. read hotel review

The Residencia Melon District Marina Hotel consists of three or four buildings altogether. Only one of the buildings is a hotel, the others are student dorms. The average age was around 20-30. When we were there, there were a lot of Spanish people, but we didn't know if they were mainly students or tourists. We had the feeling that many travelers had only booked for a short stay. We were lucky that we could sleep with the window closed. It's probably not possible in summer. Then it would be a bit loud from the students drinking their beers outside. Condition ..., cleanliness, and location of the hotel is simply great and all of this for a very good price. read hotel review
  • Room

    The rooms are furnished really very sparsely and designed for travelers who are out a lot and looking at the city. The room was very small, it had a wardrobe, a closet with a free safe, a desk with a chair and 140cm wide bed. The small bathroom consisted of a toilet, sink and shower with a shower curtain. But all very clean and quite new and modern furnishings. If you wanted to have a chat or to round the evening off with a game, you could go into the kitchen. Each floor has a rec room with kitchen. You can sit, eat and drink there together. We didn't use the kitchen, but it looked very clean. Each room has its own small fridge in the kitchen, that you can close with a small padlock that you have to bring with you. We used it without a padlock and our beer wasn't stolen.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    We only had breakfast once in Café Melon during our stay. Cleanliness and hygiene were good. We chose a type of meal which included muesli with milk, juice, a coffee and something sweet or a baguette roll. The museli was just Kelloggs, the juice was from Tetra pak. The coffee was very good. (You can also get coffee to go) We only had breakfast there once, because we weren't happy with the value for money. The meal costed about 5 euro. We did, however, notice in other cafes that this price is pretty standard everywhere. The restaurant/cafe was always busy in the evening. There was also room service.

  • Service
    6.0

    The service was very good. We managed to do everything with English or Spanish. The people were all very nice and helpful. We had no housekeeping throughout our stay (4 days) and didn't actually need it. For more toilet paper or an extra cleaning you had to pay a little. We didn't need it, but if you're missing something then you can really easily buy it in the small supermarkets that are really close by (2 minutes away).

    The hotel has a small roof terrace with a couple of loungers and a pool. We spent most of our time here and enjoyed the view of the city. It's really worth it for that. Especially at night with all the lights. It was a bit too cold for us to use the pool etc. in April.

  • Location

    Distance to the nearest subway station: 5 minutes (the station is called Marina and is only 2 stops from the city center). Distance to the beach: about a half hour walk; about 10 minutes on the subway. Distance to the airport: we landed in Girona and we had to take the Barcelona bus for about 1.25 hours to Estacio del Nord (bus station about 10 minutes walk away from the hotel). Distance to restaurants and shops: the biggest shopping mall in the whole of Barcelona in about 10 minutes' walk away. Distance to excursions: about 15 minutes' walk away from the Sagrada Familia. It's only two subway stops to Plaça de Catalunya. The Ramblas are here and the harbor's not far away either. This square is the crossroads of Barcelona; there are lots of subway and bus connections, the hop on/hop off bus tour starts here. There are lots of possibilities for shopping and enjoying Spanish food here.

There are drinks and snacks cheap vending machines to buy, in addition, per floor a kitchen, where you own compartment in the fridge (small padlock carry forward!). At the reception, there was wi-fi, in the room you need a lan cable (with availability at the front desk for free to borrow). read hotel review

    The room is small, but sufficient, if one anyway not much time want to spend. Also the bathroom (with toilet and shower) was small. It is not 100% ig clean. The room seemed a little worn, but perfect its purpose. There is a safe and a tv - apparatus (with 3 german transmitters), as well as internet access (lan cable at the reception free of charge to borrow.) Depending on the room and floor has a great view of the city or the sea.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    The self-service restaurant had a cafeteria character, we only ate used. It was not more everything from the extensive menu card available. The offer contains hardly any dishes typical for the country, but burger, pizza and co. The quality of the consumed food (burgers, chips, käsepizza ) was very good, price-performance ratio was alright. A breakfast was offered, which we didn't use it.

  • Service

    Against surcharge can food from the restaurant on the room. This service we didn't use. Room is only with stays longer than 6 days is cleaned. Also, there is only one set of towels per person. Extra towels you got for an additional fee.

    On the roof of the hotel there is a pool, that you until 22 hours which could. The water was very chlorinated. Pleasant atmosphere on the roof, as a 'relaxing launch' called is. Great all-round views!

    The hotel is not attractive area, but very conveniently located. The metro station marina (l1) is about 5 minutes' walk away. To the placa de catalunya it is from there 3 stops. The station el glot, from where the airport train runs, is only 2 underground stops away. Further there is a tram stop in 3 minutes walking distance. A large shopping center (glories) is circa 15-20 - minute walk or 2 tram stops from the hotel. A supplier of city tours (barcelona city tour) has a station to the shopping center.

Chic, modern, affordable, beach and hotel close to the center. Hotel? I know still not it is hostel, residence? In once a week room cleaning. Is perfect 15 minutes to the beach, about 25 minutes to the La Rambla. Atmosphere processed by schleußen, each building has its own small rectangular roof pool with beach chairs, or it is located on the wooden floor, supermarket around the corner for self-catering. Very good affordable way to short break and beach holidays to combine, metro around the corner, but is walking distance to centre very easy to reach. read hotel review

We were now in may a day there for the night, as we then a cruise from Barcelona did. After the cruise, we were again for an overnight stay in melon district to explore Barcelona. Melon district is about 5 minutes' walk from the metro station 'Marina' to reach. From Marina until to the center it is also just 3 metro stations. The front desk is optically very attractive and the staff speak spanish and english. The check in was very fast and you get two room cards with which one also a absprerrung can go, that means the only ... people to the room, which was checked in are. The rooms are very small, include a 1.40 meters bed (in a double room ), a few closets, table & chair and a small bathroom with a shower. However everything very clean and tidy! And i was always very important! It is important, that the rooms only after 6 days stay cleaned and towels to be replaced. But we were only in each case 1 day, so it was all the same to us that. There is a communal kitchen with a bin in the fridge, but we didn't use it. Wifi is free of charge available. On the roofs of buildings (there are 4 building) there is a pool including beach chairs and you a great view across Barcelona. There was a 'restaurant' the rather a cafeteria resembles and where you can eat (burger with fries 6,8 Euro, schokocroissant 1,20 Euro). My conclusion: for city trips to Barcelona the melon district definitely right, because the price for a night in circa 33 Euro and the link to the city center is great. read hotel review

The location the accommodation me immediately convinced, as you in 2-3 minutes to the next metro-station and in a few minutes the desired location in Barcelona. The staff was very friendly and helpful, check-in/check-out was in a short time finished. My single room was not very big, but for me not a problem was, as i the whole day on the way was. The residence was all very well maintained, you feel in good hands and safe. The only problem were 2-3 small stains on the sheets. Great is the pool on the roof, there one has a great view ... over the whole city. read hotel review

The hotel is ideal for Barcelona to ask, however one can give oneself the 5 €per person per day for breakfast save. One has the choice between 1 coffee or cappuccino, 1 juice or water, 1 bowl of cereal or yogurt and 1 rolls or dry Croissant - there are in the surrounding area but more cafes for breakfast. Our room was very small and changing or refresh service is against an extra charge. All in all you with a city journey anyway rarely in the hotel room, that's why for us it was acceptable. Highlight was the pool on ... the roof terrace - here one has a view over completely Barcelona. read hotel review

We have only one night before our cruise here. For a city break more than enough. The rooms are very small, but clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. Circa 5-8 minutes away from the metro station Marina. A small supermarket is approximately 5 minutes away. In the complex there is a kind of kantinenrestaurant, where you can have breakfast.

Very small rooms, but clean and for 1-3 nights enough. We were only one night in the hotel. The staff was very helpful and could good english. The location was good, to metro only 5 minutes on foot and it was very quiet in the hotel. In the hotel there is a breakfast restaurant with self-service (costs extra). For the price to be recommended, even if the bathroom very small was. read hotel review

We had a double room booked, but got comfortable a single room: the bed was 1.35 meters wide and there were only a blanket, as well as a towel. Also after multiple complaints gave there solution. The room and bathroom were unbelievably tiny, especially you could only from one side to bed rise. The cleaning of the rooms respectively linen had additionally cost. Even when the toilet paper ran out, we were greeted by the cleaning lady pointed out, the other roles cost money. The in the room price included breakfast consisted of 3 (!) Components, the coffee, Croissant ..., glass juice, submarine small rolls or cereal could choose from. Everything else would have extra cost. The building is located directly next to a large mortuary. read hotel review

The hotel residencia melon district Marina is a complex area with several houses. Each of the homes has a pool and roof terrace with a magnificent view over Barcelona. In the whole complex it is very clean and well-kept. In the hotel was everything very modern kept. As it is also a complex is for students in Barcelona is the average age low and lots of young people were guests. Otherwise truly mixed audience all nationalities. Breakfast is not included, but the in-house restaurant in addition be used. Reasonably priced also really moderate (€4.95). The security the entire area ... must also when i checked out. Only with the room card one comes only in the complex and in the respective guest house. read hotel review

    Our standard studio with kitchenette a bit small however more than adequate. It was convenient and functional decorated. The minimum capacity were well used. The small kitchenette was also well equipped and for the daily use wonderful. In the room there was a tv (unfortunately only with spanish channels) and a safe. Otherwise was also here the condition of the room great and the cleanliness perfect.

    Belongs to the hotel a café, in which inexpensive and well can be eaten. Also there is a large degree of cleanliness and the dishes were in good quality and spotless. The price is also convincing. If you for the way a coffee needs can this either in the cafe or the machines use. Guests can fizzy drinks to be bought.

    A highlight is in fact the pool on the roof! A dip with a wonderful view over Barcelona to the mediterranean sea. But also over simply times to relax after a long trip is the roof terrace suitable. There are loungers and chairs with tables is required where you can make yourself at home. A wi-fi connection in the hotel and is free of charge. During our stay there was a karaoke evening, which really was funny. Also ' el Classico' (barca - Real Madrid) fell in our period of stay and therefore there was also an event. Who has desire can also the beach for relaxing use. This is 10 minutes away on foot distance and also very nice. The water and the beach are very clean. Beach chairs and sun screen are in my opinion with 18 Euro a bit expensive but also bearable.

    The location of the hotel is also very good. Two metro stations and a tram stop are in the immediate vicinity. The landmark sagard family you can easily on foot arrive. In the historic part (gothic quarter) is left with the metro or by a bit longer walk. Basically about this hotel most of the to reach on foot, if you don't mind walking. Until to the beach it is about 10-15 minutes and to the next shopping center ' glories' also 10 minutes. All in all a very good location and the city Barcelona to explore and exploration. In terms of sightseeing you can at the shopping center across from the torre agbar in the bus Barcelona city tour to enter.

Melon coffee is enough for breakfast ( kipferl and coffee €2) we ate out Room was to our surprise really big and the bathroom enough. Pool at the roof is good for a few laps but always only one person Is deseamed only against arrangement and against an extra charge. Towels not changed. Just basic at the start -except on request against an extra charge. Would book it again any time the location is great centrally located and the subway is right nearby and 3 stops away is you to the bus station! All in all very recommendable if one ... functionality wishes for a reasonable price! €30 per person without breakfast read hotel review
