“Great great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Have no complaints with this Hotel......we arrived from the airport and were given great instructions by The Park of what train to catch to Espanya de Franca...the hotel is opposite the station.
This is quite basic accomodation ( well our room was but no complaints) but honestly the location makes up with luxury! Our room was always cleaned promptly and efficiently and the front of house staff were always polite and very very helpful. Although our room was over a busy alleyway, the noise was never a problem as they have shutters on the windows if you want to use them.
The LOCATION is amazing to The Born district...literally out of front door and turn right and straight into maze of alleyways, bars, restaurants and cafes. Too much to choose from. Also right near the Born Cultural Centre.
Also you can hire bikes nearby to see the city or go to the beach...which is only a 10 minute walk to the beach.
Cannot recommend this Hotel highly enough and would definitely return

Looks rather uninspiring from the outside. However reception is welcoming and the room whilst small and basic, is clean and perfectly adequate. Free safe and WiFi although my I Pad did not obtain a very good signal. The main asset of this hotel is its very convenient location. Close to the Gothic area where there are numerous bars, cafes and shops. Las Ramblas and the beach are both about 15 mins walk. Tourist bus stops nearby and the rail station connecting with the airport is simply across the road.
Very good value for money.

This hotel is opposite the train station which makes it really easy to get to from the airport.
5 minute walk and you are in the gothic quarter, rambles and the red/blue bus route.
Free wifi and safe in the room.
Only negative, bedrooms smell of cigerette smoke even in non smoking rooms.

Room Tip: Side rooms are noisy as restaurants and bars underneath

We weren't sure what to expect when we booked this hotel as the reviews seemed fairly mixed at the time. However, we had a lovely, modern, well air-conditioned and well appointed room on the 6th floor. The bed was comfortable, with a firm mattress and good pillows. The safe in the room was appreciated for security and we had notepaper and a pen which came in handy. There was no noise at night, from either other guests or from the road. Free wifi was an added bonus and let us book tickets for the Sagrada Familia in advance.

Location was superb - on the edge of the Gothic Quarter, walking distance to virtually everything south east of Plaza Catalunya and with lots of restaurants close by. We loved being able to walk to the port every day. It was perfect being near the sea yet close to the older, more historic parts of town.

Staff were helpful - nothing was too much to ask. Breakfast was good for the Mediterranean - a selection of cooked meats and cheeses, fresh fruit, yogurt and pastries as well as sausages and eggs for an English breakfast. The breakfast opening times were generous.

We would happily return here and highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the higher floors - reading some other reviews, some floors may have not be...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We decided on the hotel because of the parking facilities, which was very good. Almost everything about the hotel was a pleasant surprise. A large, cool room, good beds, a working and free wifi, and a very good breakfast. The location turned out to be just great: charming (by El Born), a few steps away from the worst crowds, with nice restaurants and shops nearby. Two drawbacks: ask for a room to the side-street, the main street was a bit noisy. And the bath room was due for a renovation, it looked a little shabby - but was quite functional and clean. But all in all quite good value for the price.

Room Tip: choose a room to the side street.

Great location, friendly staff.
Rooms a bit small but they have a modern decor scheme.
I'd stay here again.
The closeness to the old quarter was a real bonus.
I thought it was a real value for money hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
ARCHITECTURE, DESIGN AND COMFORT IN THE MOST EXCITING HAPPENING AREA OF BARCELONA Park Hotel is a 3-star historic hotel located in one of the most emblematic quarters of Barcelona, el Born. The quarter where the art and the fashion have always been merged to, it is an area full of live, museums and wonderful gastronomy. The Born quarter is the area where the old tow lives with the latest trends. The building was built between 1950 and 1953 by the Architect Antoni de Moragas I Gallissa. It was one of the first buildings of the neoracionalism movement of postwar Europe. The interior design made by Eulalia Calaveras was done to the last detail, to make guests feel at home while in Barcelona. ROOMS The hotel offers 91 welcoming rooms, all of which are exterior. The furniture, combination of wood and textiles and clever lighting all create an atmosphere of warmth and light. Our security system combines the use of magnetic strip key cards and motion detectors to provide greater security and intimacy during your stay. The presence sensors will then switch off the lights as you leave, in keeping with our commitment to sustainability. Guest Room Amenities: Air-conditioning, heating Direct telephone line Safe LCD and LED televisions Satellite channels Digital+ Mini-bar Laundry service Wi-Fi Internet service, free of charge Handicapped rooms RESTAURANT 10's In the heart of the Born district, right where the ABaC Restaurant began its journey over ten years ago (now to be found in Avenida TIbidabo and currently holding 2 Michelin Stars) 10's offers an informal and casual ambience with capacity for 60 guests. It distances itself from the stereotypical Spanish tapas bars with a fresh image Offers tapas and side dishes true to the philosophy of ABaC; tradition and modernity in equal measure. Jordi Cruz defines them as "Uncomplicated creations, packed with flavour and impact. The idea is one of an orchestra where the excellent "patatas bravas" - always in their skins, or "calamares a la andaluza" play permanently and invite an exclusive ABaC guest star to play each week; such as the Cherry Ceviche or the Figs with Foie Gras. Generous portions, quality produce and inspired creativity are all offered on a plate at a good price." To complete the experience there are two terraces and one reserved for 20 guests MEETING ROOMS The hotel offers a meeting rooms, from 2 to 50 people, with day light and views to Avenida Marques de Argentera, equipped with the most modern technology. For whatever event you may wish to undertake, our highly qualified personnel will take care of every detail and will work with you in all aspects regarding organisation to guarantee a memorable experience.
