“Clean but no frills”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

The taxi driver who brought us from the airport hadn't heard of this hotel. Given that its situated on Las Ramblas , I was somewhat perturbed.reception staff were polite and efficient but on opening the bedroom door we were met with the smell of smoke plus an aroma of damp ! It appeared that our room was one of their smoking rooms (we weren't asked if we required one) but it was late and we wanted to get to bed. Sleep was almost impossible as the v uncomfortable bed had a plastic backed fitted under sheet on.......similar to ones used in hospital. Our night went from being hot and sweating profusely to feeling cold and shivery. Breakfast was in a coffee bar through the wall in the reception area. We were given 4 photographs of breakfast food to choose from, all consisted of scrambled egg and bacon, so not a lot of choice. We couldn't take 3 more nights here and kindly made our excuses and moved to a hotel 5 mins walk away.

Room Tip: Check you don't get given a smoking room

Stayed at Flor Parks Hotel for 3 nights before our cruise and it was perfectly situated. Las Ramblas is a hive of activity and we found it safe to walk around at night even though so many people had warned us about pick pockets. Room was in quiet spot but wasn't very big and bed not too comfortable but having aircon was great. It was great to be so close everything and I found the staff very helpful and friendly. Free wifi was useful for picking up emails and found out on last day that there is free wifi all around Barcelona. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Barcelona too!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the garden - so peaceful especially as Las Ramblas very busy street and can be...

Flor Parks Hotel was a little oasis of calm in the bustling La Rambla. So good to escape back to and to be able to look out onto the quietness of the trees in the garden out our window. Staff. We're all very helpful. Great stay

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.
