“Good hotel, hot inside, even in April!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

We booked the hotel for our trip in April 2014 to Barcelona. We booked it mainly for the location nearby the highway and close enough to some metrostations. The area the hotel is situated in is a very quit neighbourhood were people live. Across the hotel is even a very large cemetery, so quiet enough. The hotel had good and spacious rooms, good bathroom an toilet with lot of accessoires. The breakfast was good and had enough goodies to choose from although the space to sit in and move around the buffet was a bit small. Allover a good hotel, but what was less pleasant was that is was very hot inside the hotel. With temperatures outside the hotel of ca 20 to 22 C on midday, inside (at night) it was 25 to 26 degrees, even hotter in the hallway. You could see the temperature on the AC unit inside the room, that only had a fan function, not cooling down. Complaining about it at the reception gave a surprising answer: they did not have the AC system on in the whole hotel this time of year! So bad luck if you would wish to have a cooler room in April. Not the service you expect from a 4 star hotel.

It is about four squares away from the metro and this is a little problem and also that the standard room hasn't got a fridge. But, all the other are perfect. The cleaning lady comes every day and the breakfast is served until late and this is good for them who want to sleep a little bit more!!

Room Tip: If you visit it especially in summer, choose a room with fridge.

My boyfriend and I visited Barcelona for the weekend and stayed in this hotel. We were extremely impressed with the friendliness of the staff, the room was spotless and the location was ideal. The breakfast had a wide selection of hot and cold food and drinks and catered for everyone. The reception area had a variety of leaflets including a map of the city which is extremely useful! I think it would be beneficial to add on to the hotel description the best way to get there from the airport. We managed to find our way but guidance on which bus to get and then which metro line totake would be really useful for people coming to stay! I would definitely recommend this hotel and also I would love to return again soon!

This hotel was modern and very clean. Staff were efficient but not over friendly. Hotel had little information to offer a tourist. But, it is only a short walk to the metro and 15 minutes from the centre. The beach is 5 minutes walk away and there are plenty of bars and eating places towards Port Olympic. The photo of the rooms showed coffee making facilities but this was only available in superior rooms. Would go back and recommend to others.

Hits and misses with this hotel. Hit is the location, great for a quite 10 mins walk to the "better end of the beach" with cool eating outs and late opening clubs.

I have stayed at 2 other hotels in Barcelona in last year. Europark is a 3 star, but the gym is better and free of charge. 4 Barcelona charge 5 euros for a room for usage of the gym. I have never been to a hotel that charges to use it gym before and I am fortunate to travel on hols 6-8 times a year.

Room was fair, on one of my nights, left card outside to have my room cleaned and it wasn't when I arrived back. Had to the wait 20 minutes to have it cleaned.

Not a fan of hotels that don't allow you to print your own documents. There you have to send it to them or they save it on a sub and then print it out for you.

Good size bathroom.

Arrived much too late to wake up for breakfast, so did not order any. Fairly small open lobby and rooms rather warm. But a good hotel otherwise, main attraction fab location for beach stroll.

Upon arrival staff very friendly and helpful. Throughout two night stay they couldn't have been more helpful. Gave brilliant directions to all amenities and nothing was too much trouble. We paid for breakfast at 9 euros and it was excellent and there was plenty to choose from. Room was clean, tidy and comfortable and maid came each day to clean it. Overall it is a great hotel and would recommend it!

Stayed in the hotel for 4 night, it was a lovely hotel but nothing special. Situated just a few blocks away from the Llacuna metro station and only a few minutes walk to the beach. The hotel was clean and had a basic gym with a sauna and hot tub however you have to pay £5 extra a night i think. The tv stations were not the best, on paper there should be about a 6 english speaking channels however only sky news was working during my stay. overall not a bad hotel
