October weekend

Arrived late on Friday evening. Checked in with friendly reception staff. Very nice room on 6th floor of main hotel. The only problem is always with breakfasts. The room and number of staff insuffiecient although the staff do as good a job as possible. Things like glasses and cutlery always short and some breakfast items not replaced quick enough. Only 1 of 3 coffee machines working. I still like the hotel but next time would consider not having breakfast. Plenty of places outside to get a breakfast.

Would return

My fiancé and I stayed in this hotel for three nights. I found the location to be very good and the staff to be helpful. The room was clean however our room view was another bedroom window a few feet away. This meant our room had little natural light. Great hotel for people just looking for somewhere clean and convenient to sleep while exploring the city by day.

barcelona weekend

I had requested a room in the main hotel rather than the annex through the underground car -park but was told the main hotel was full. However room was very nice apart from having no window. Breakfast was very busy, but a good selection available. Had to share tables 2 out of 3 mornings. I have stayed several times here and it is very good value and good location.

nice accommodation for overnight stay

Hotel was in a good location, close to the port, only 5 min walk to the rambla, and a metro station just across the road. Service in breakfast room was good, with a price of €8 all you can eat hot food and.continental. room was good, great shower, air con could be better, and rooms at the front can be quite noisy from traffic but its a busy city so be realistic and expect noise. Had a view of mont juic from the balcony which was.nice. cot provided for our baby at no extra cost. adjoining cafe bar had good food, although they messed up order and the bill was more expensive than expected. All in all a good stay for a short stay in Barcelona

The best thing about my stay was...

proximity to metro, and to the rambla

gag factory

We stayed in this hotel because it was right opposite the Sala Apolo which was where we needed to go for a concert so was perfect location for us, but the hotel itself wasn't perfect at all. The lobby and our room was smelly, we had aircon in the room but didn't seem to make any difference so the room was boiling all through our stay. There was no bathtub, although the shower was nice but only went to a certain temperature which for us, wasn't hot enough. We could hear constant banging throught the walls and the ceiling so we could hardly sleep at night. The rooms were clean and modern but could of done with a kettle and a fridge. We got breakfast in the hotel during our stay but there wasn't much variety and the food wasn't great so we chose to have breakfast elsewhere. There was 0% fresh air to our room because the only window we had in our room lead to a closed area where the drains were.

Good value for money

Good location and good value for money based on this and the included breakfast. The hotel itself is in need of some work however the rooms are clean and modern. The breakfast was no more than average however it did the job and was a good price for a included breakfast compared to other hotels. The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful and their English was a lot better than our Catalan!! We were able to put our bags into a locked room on check out day and go and collect them later on. During the week, there was some roadworks taking place right outside our widnow which were very loud in the mornings. This was not a massive issue as we were wanting to be up and out fairly early but if you like a lie in - consider this! great that the hotel is so close to Parallel metro station which is a very useful station in terms of getting around!

You get what you pay for?

Well, in this case you actually do, thanks to a great rate from Alpharooms. The hotel has been refurbished in the last few years and we have stayed there once before. It now has 3* rating. The rooms are new and have smart bathrooms with walk in showers. We were placed in the annex at the back, "hotel 2" with an internal view over the backyards. The rooms in the front facing The Parallel are noisier, but the double glazing and aircon are effective enough. There are flat screen televisions, but mostly in Spanish or Catalan, including the pop music video channel RAC 105. We took the breakfast as part of the deal. There is some hot food, but its basically a typical continental buffet.

The best thing about my stay was...

Good nights sleep, thanks to double glazing, aircon and good blackout curtains.

nice stay

The room was small but completely new and well cleaned. The position is only 30 meters from the metro. The air conditioned was fresh enough onlywhen I asked the second key to leave it always in task for the electricity. The Wifi doesn't work in the room, but only in the hall.

The best thing about my stay was...

Good position.

Short Stay Visit

Upon arrival at hotel, the receptionist was very friendly. We requested a room with balcony & a view, so we stayed on 7th floor. We found all members of staff friendly & helpful. The rooms were spotless with adequate toiletries like toothpaste/toothbrushes/comb/disposable razor/soap/shower gel etc etc. Ave Paral-lel is a busy street & noise levels were minimum when balcony door is closed. Breakfast was very good (served from 7.30am to 10.30 am). A recommendation here would be for breakfast trays to minimise the many trips for toast, fruit, rolls, jam, cooked food, beverages & cold meats. This hotel should be upgraded to a higher rating from the 2 stars specified.

The best thing about my stay was...

Balcony View & comfortable beds
