Everything you need apart from an iron, bottle opener and tea and coffee in the room. Apart from those small details we couldn't fault the place. Friendly staff, very clean, and great location! Would stay again!

Stayed there for 4 nights with my gf. The rooms were very clean. The hotel is about a 15 min walk to La Rambla and right next to the train and bus stops to get anywhere in the city. The staff was very helpful and warm. The only minus was the breakfast which costs 11 euro and which we only... More

A great choice especially for it's comfortable price.The only downsize I found - that the single room were I stayed was pretty small

This is a nice clean hotel you won't be sorry you booked. It's clean, well furnished, offers a nice breakfast (extra). Granted it's not within walking distance to most tourist attractions, although we were able to walk to La Rambla in about 20 minutes. Take the subway, it's only 2 blocks away. Regarding the reviewer who claimed of noise and... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights prior to embarking on a cruise. It was conveniently located, clean, and reasonably priced. Our room was at the back of the hotel, therefore very quiet. Room appointments included a large bed, desk, television, small refrigerator and a safe. The bath was modern and included a hair dryer. We... More

I had a good stay here - nothing fancy, but all worked well and staff were helpful. TRIP ADVISOR, I can't understand why you set a minimum number of words for a review when I've said what I need to say.

My husband and I took a cruise out of Barcelona for our honeymoon and the night before it left, we stayed at Hotel Parallel. The room was exactly as pictured, the lobby was well appointed, and the staff was wonderful. They spoke excellent English and helped us navigate the city with our map and guide books. The only complaint I... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
