The room was a decent size, modern and clean. The front desk staff were very helpful & the location was good as many of the main attractions are walking distance. There are cheap supermarkets very close by if you are keeping things on a budget. There is a nice cafe on the opposite side of the main road for a nice breakfast.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a terrace for some outside space.

small hotel, small price, good location, very good prsonnnel very clean A.C perfect anf very comfortable bed good WIFI in the room and computer station in the entrance floor free of charge
free newspaper and city map upon request with very good help and explanation of the personnel. I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights and realy enjoy it. metro station is in a distance of no more than 100m. very close to every thing. for those people who like to walk it is about 20min. to the rambla as well to the sea port.
i didn't use the hotel dining room so I can not write how was it.

Stayed two nights over the UK bank holiday weekend. Decent size room, well finished (assume this is recently refurbished as we were on the 4th floor). No view at all - window looked onto another building, and hence there was never any sunlight in the room. Unfortunately the hotel was fully booked, so there was no option to move to another room. The bathroom is lovely - great size, super powerful shower. A couple of thoughtless niggles from me - there's no usable mirror in the bedroom for getting ready (only a large one over the bed which is awkward to use as it means balancing on the bed). There's a great full length mirror on the rear of the bathroom door, but the drainage is poor in the shower tray and hence the floor gets wet, so not ideal to sit down to apply make up/dry hair/etc. Well stocked mini-bar which was surprisingly reasonably priced. Comfortable beds and pillows. Location is great - 2 minutes walk from a metro station, which also has access to the funicular railway to Montjuic. 10-15 minutes walk to La Rambla. Secure luggage storage room if you need to check out early but your flight departs later. I was happy with our stay, and it's very reasonably priced for Barcelona, but I wouldn't like to stay there for anything more than a 2-3 night break.

Great place and location. Breakfast quite nice however no fresh fruits or vegetables.
A little bit noisy during day due to reconstruction on the first floor.

We got suite (two rooms !) as asked for a quiet room at no additional cost !!.

Good connections to metro , Rambla, Montjuic Park

Nice service and WiFi.
Recommended for all.

Had a very pleasant stay in this hotel with my family. Personnel is friendly, rooms are quiet and clean, airconditioning works perfectly, location very convenient, close to subway and bus (numerous bus lines). Breakfast is modest but covers different needs / tastes. Would stay at the Parallel hotel any time again.
