“Perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Coming out of the Estacio de Franca train station, we were thankful that the hotel was just right in front of us with the big P-A-R-K letters gracing the side of the building. It looks like an apartment building from the outside but we were surprised by the modern furnishings inside. The staff was very helpful in giving us directions and advise for where to eat and shop. The room was small but more than adequate for 2 people and clean. The location is really the best selling point here as it's walking distance to Port Vell, Las Ramblas and many other sights; there's a Metro station nearby to get to places beyond the Barceloneta area. The wifi skips in and out and the street noise from the many nearby tapas bars may waft into your room but beyond those, this is a terrific place to stay in Barcelona.

Nice place to be.. Nothing to be offended over. Close to everything, city, train, park, zoo, water, shops, whatever you need. Staff is helpfull and kind. I have nothing bad to say about this place at all. The breakfast is also very good, and the bar in the lobby serves a wicked sangria :)

very nice hotel, clean and very convenient. Its close to both a Renfee station (for Airport and around) and barceloneta metro (local). Bit noisy at night since its close to a few Tapas bars but manageable.Rooms are large and spacious.
Very helpful staff but average breakfast.

Room Tip: take ones that do not face the road

Location, Location, Location! The Park Hotel is a wonderful place to stay. The hotel is a five-minute walk from the Cathedral of the Sea, a ten-minute walk from the Picasso Museum, a three-minute walk from the Ciudadella Park, a three-minute wak from wonderful restaurants and tapas restaurants. Want to go further--a metro stop is five minutes away, and a taxi is always available. On the sidewalk in front of the hotel are two or three cafes where, after a day of walkiing and sightseeing, we sat down for some beer and snacks.

Staff was very good. When we arrived, there was a small problem with a mechanism in the toilet--the manager came and fixed it immediately. The buffet breakfasts were outstanding. And we were most gratified that when we arrived after flying to Barcelona from San Francisco via Miami--a long trip--our room was ready when we arrived in the morning.

Moderately priced, fine service, clean (room a little small but that's hardly unusual for Europe)--the Park Hotel is a wonderful 3-Star property.

The hotel is just across the street from the Estacio Franca, therefore, very easily reached by train from the airport. It's walking distance from a myriad of worthwhile things to see and visit on foot - the old town, the harbor, the beach, the city park. Also, a sightseeing (Hop On/Hop Off) bus stop is 2 minutes from its front door, allowing for exploring the more distant city attractions. Our very contempary double room was immaculate, comfrortable and quiet. The windows even opened - a rarity these days. The buffet breatkfast was outstanding and the gentleman in charge was most courteous and nice. For location and price - a very good choice. Would return any time.

We are just back from Barcelona and stayed at the Park Hotel. Location was great, in the brilliant Born area, close to everything. We know the city so just got the Aerobus to Placa de Catalunya and walked down (15 min stroll).

The reception area is small but nice. Check in was quick. Have your passport ready for ID. We got a twin superior room on the 4th floor. It was a decent size, all muted colours. Good tv, 4 spare power sockets, mini bar, wifi etc The bathroom was nice too. All better than we expected and nice.

The glazing was good so we didn't suffer too much noise. The air conditioning worked great too. Staff were lovely and the maids very friendly. Our room was always tidied and refreshed quickly.

Wi-fi was just below 1mbps in our room but was good enough. If you exit the hotel and head left, there is a handy supermarket 2 minutes along the road for supplies. Tucked behind the hotel are all the delights of the wonderful Born area, including all the bars, restaurants and shops you could want. We enjoyed Pitin Bar.

Overall I would totally recommend the hotel. My only real negatives was with the Tens tapas bar attached to it and also blackout curtain would have been good in our room but none. I've posted photos.

A tidy little hotel, easy to spot when you come out of Estacio Franca. It is a little walk down to the beach but the best thing is that it is easy to go back to when you have been out in the old town. It is on the outer rim of the old town but compared to ones inside the maze it is neater and have a easier approach. I found it to be a little bit to far to to the metro-station Barceloneta.

If you come from the airport I suggets you take R2 to Passeig Gracia (the one after Bars Sans), step out on the platform and wait for the R2-South towards Estac Franca that will come in less than 20 minutes.

I stayed up on the seventh floor, the elevator was a bit slow, with a small balcony to a side street overlooking the cities rooftop landscape. The windows wasn´t well isolated so you got up quite early because of the sounds of the city. The room was quite small but the bathroom was terrific, large and light wuith the frosted doors to the balcony, I especially like the marble sink.

The personel was quiet and didn´t say much but they seemed to manage some english. In the bottom floor there where a kind of finer artisan tapas-restaurant (named 10´s). General standard was OK, it was clean and no other troubles.

Room Tip: A small balcony is nice, found on some rooms (the large balcony cost extra).

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.
