“Smells like wet dogs”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

First of all the hotel is in a great position, the rooms look nice and are large and well appointed but that's we're it ends. First of all the room had a terrible odour of wet dog smell, we found out within our first hour that the hotel is a dog friendly hotel and the smell said it all. Then we found the beds yes 2 singles pushed together with a big gap in the middle, had plastic sheets on them that rustled all night. Must have been put on to protect mattresses from the dogs sleeping on them. Yuk. I like dogs like the rest of people but not in my hotel room. I would never expect this any where, should be highlighted in their advertising. Breakfast was floating in bad tasting oil, and later saw them straining the dirty cooking oil from fryers into to large bottles, maybe they use this to cook the eggs. Would not recommend eggs and bacon

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a balcony that overlooks Ramblas and one that has not had dogs in them ,if t...

We stayed at the Flor Parks prior to our cruise in May. It is an ideal location and the breakfast downstairs is good.
You can purchase you hop on Hop off bus pass at the Hotel for the red line. Centrally located, good value.

Hotel in front of the Ramblas, in front to the Liceo Metro Station. I took the train-metro from the airport to the Ramblas and just cross the street to enter de hotel. Right in front to the Grand theater, free WFI, nice personnel, 4 minutes walking distance to the Mercad de la Boqueria. Also banks, stores, restaurants, churchs, Plaza Cataluña, Plaza Colon,,etc. all close! Rooms not to big but clean. I bought a multi trips metro ticket and I traveled the whole city, and Monserrat and Sitges! beautifulllll!

Second stay here, great location for all attractions. On la ramblas, 5 min walk to lovely square (on left of hotel) with entertainment and restaurants. 15 min walk to harbour and then another to the beach! 15 min walk max the other way to shops cathedral etc restaurant attached to hotel added €5 ish if you sat outside to eat so beware. Also McDonald's and KFC 2 mins away should you fancy.
The room had all that was needed, couldn't get air con to work but didn't call reception as weather didn't require it. Very slight wallpaper peeling which was a shame and unnecessary. Great free wifi, worked on la ramblas too. Comfortable beds and mini bar left empty so could be used as fridge. Free safe also. Would be great if room had kettle etc. didn't bother with b&b as so many great restaurants nearby. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Request to not be near cleaners store room as very noisy very early. Rooms facing la ramblas are sun...

Just back from a 3 nights family and friends holiday at Flor Parks - we had 3 rooms, two standard doubles at the back and a twin room over looking La Rambla. Great central location right in the middle of La Rambla. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. We booked a 2 day hop on hop off city tour bus at reception which worked out at €180 for 6 people.

Hotel rooms and overall is very clean and in good condition. One of the standard rooms was quite cramped due to poor design and despite the bathroom (marble tiles) being very spacious the design and location of the bidet made it very awkward getting in and out of the bath / shower very difficult. I would recommend this hotel except for the beds which we found to be in the small side and also too hard.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back get the morning sun which is great to open the doors to the lean out balcony We ha...

Nice place, well situated, hotel staff very helpful. Also the French doors to the small balcony provide excellent sound proofing from the bustle of La Rambla.
Will probably stay there again. And here are some more characters because you have to put more than 200 or you get your electronic wrists slapped. Slightly ridiculous, I think...

We booked a room in this hotel for its excellent location on La Rambla.
However, we were disappointed by the very small bed (and very small room), the lack of a duvet or blanket (yes, we only had a top sheet and a bed cover, but not a proper duvet/blanket) and the lack of isolation work - we heard every noise coming from the neighbours' rooms, including every time they flushed the toilet.
The small carpets at each side of the bed looked scary - did not dare to touch them barefoot.
TV screen very small, difficult to watch TV unless you have very good eyesight.
Another minus - there is not a single plug in the entire room to charge a phone or computer - we had to use the plug in the bathroom...
Bathroom was ok.
Staff looked confused and gave us strange looks, but otherwise no problems.
Will not be back, it is overpriced for what they offer.
