This was probably the nicest place we've stayed in on our trip so far. Hotel modern, nice furnishings, rooms adequate, bathroom nice, free wifi, friendly staff who were very helpful. It's a close walk to the ramblas but a bit of a hike to some other attractions, however it suited us. Close enough but a bit away from the hustle... More

Rooms OK, small, & in need of a lot of small repair jobs. toilet & shower are cramped. staff speak English. Shops & Metro close by. Quiet & great view from upper floors with dbl glazed windows. TV reception was awful, but WiFi was free.

Hotel is clean, small rooms, good for 2 stars. Friendly staff. Wifi signal was so weak in my room, I can not use it. Rooms are noisy. You can hear all from next door room. All in all not so bad considering price. I would recommend this hotel if you need or want to stay in this, not nice, area.

Stayed here with my partner for 2 nights is Barcelona. It was my first visit to the city and the hotel is ideally located. It is around 10 mins walk from La Ramblas and has a metro station right outside to allow access to the cities hot spots such as Gaudi and the church. The hotel is boutique and has... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice and would stay there again when I return to this great city! It was renovated in the nine year gap between visits and it now represents great value for money for a small well presented hotel tucked away just off the main avenue. It is a reasonable walking distance to the beach and... More

I stayed at the Paral.lel my last two nights in Barcelona. I was recommended the hotel by a travel buddy who had stayed in a nearby hostel. I'm sure glad I took his advice! Upon arriving I was checked in by George/Jorge, who was extremely friendly and welcoming. He had actually spent some time in my hometown of Charlotte, which... More

We really enjoyed our time in this hotel. It was clean and comfortable and the decor very chic. Ignore older photos submitted by guests it looks nothing like this! Wifi was excellent throughout our stay and staff were polite,friendly and helpful. There are no facilities apart from a breakfast room which we did not use as they wanted 11euros each... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights whilst visiting Barcelona in August. On arrival we were struck by how friendly the hotel staff were and how clean the hotel was. Hotel has 5 floors- we were located on 5th floor, and room was a good size with TV/Air Con/Hair Dryer. There was limited storage space for clothes but this... More
