“Perfect location”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Flor Parks Hotel in Barcelona is absolutely perfectly located - 15 minute walk to Placa Catalunya and 15 minute walk to the Columbus Monument and exactly on La Rambla.
Room we stayed in was relatively small, but we just needed a place to sleep and not some fancy retreat while in Barcelona. Room was clean, bathroom was great. That's all we were looking for.
Staff was very helpful. Would be great if they had more info about events nearby.
We asked about concert of Spanish guitar and they did not have any knowledge of such an event. It turned out that the following night there was one just around the corner at Basilica Santa Maria Del Pi. Once we found this out, they did all they could to make sure we get our tickets and to top it we got a "special" service since a really good seats were held for us :-)
Subway was right there, good restaurants, of course....
We read numerous stories about "dangers" of Barcelona....
In three days we were there we did not see/experience a single problem. Like in any other big city you have to be smart. Barcelona is no different. It is pitty that its beauty is being shadowed by the stories of pick-pocketers and small crooks.
Police presence was visible during our stay. I think city of Barcelona is doing more than any other city to address the problem. Good job....
Barcelona is by far the most beautiful city we've seen (and we've seen a LOT).
Can't wait to go again...

This hotel was booked online, so it was a super pleasant surprize to find it was right amongst the action, in La Rambla! Our first trip to Barcelona too!! Our room had adequate facilities, and was comfortable and clean. The Staff were super friendly and so helpful, and this gave us the confidence to be adventurous and check out attractions to visit. Barcelona is full of history too, and we took advantage of the transport system which was just amazing, also a the Hop on Hop Off bus was very convenient.. The "Information" Kiosks are informative. The Hotel was handy to the markets; just amazing to see the variety of foodstalls, so well set up and colourful! The hotel is handy to many restaurants the choices are mind boggling!!

Room Tip: The room we had on 3rd floor, non smoking, accessible by lift, quiet.

The hotel is centrally located in the middle of Las Ramblas. The room (and hotel), while small, was nicely appointed and very clean which is my main concern when traveling. Easy access to the train-metro and free wifi which was a plus. Numerous eateries and small stores in the area - great for souvenir buying, etc. The hotel must have double or triple paned windows/doors because we were on the street side and never heard the evening festivities which I'm told go on until all hours. The small office staff was very helpful and all spoke very good English. I'd say it was a very good value for the area and would stay there again. We took the bus from the airport and it was only a short walk to the hotel. If you email them with questions, you get a fairly prompt reply and answer.

Room Tip: We were on the fourth floor on the street side and it was quiet. They have 2 small elevators to ac...

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!
