First time in Barcelona and what was important was to be in a accessable location to historic sites, eateries and evening entertainment areas. The hotel certainly proved favourable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No Frills Budget Hotel... Reasonable Central!"
Have been here before so knew in advance what to expect. It was a good price and reasonably centrally located... directly opposite the Franca train station. The hotel rooms are incredibly thin & you will scarily think at times that someone else is in your bathroom! You can distinctly hear conversations & other things in adjoining rooms!!! Rubbish collections […] will wake you as will general street noise! The rooms themselves are adequate but the whole hotel is showing signs of wear & could do with a makeover! The Staff are ok, it's a bit hit & miss whether you'll be greeted with a frown or scowl... rarely a smile & they will happily keep you waiting at the desk whilst they attend to anything else.. Not making you feel entirely welcome or wanted but after all, you get what you pay for!!! The breakfast is very like any other continental breakfast & is adequate in variety of hot & cold choice! I chose this hotel because I wanted somewhere reasonably central for a reasonable price & wasn't planning on staying in much! I arranged a taxi myself from the airport to the Park Hotel & it cost €25... However I asked the hotel staff to arrange a taxi for my departure & it was the worst experience ever.. The driver had long white/grey curly hair with a bad attitude... Drove like a manic, took a detour.. Took us to wrong terminal then wouldn't let us have our suitcases from boot before we parted with €50 ... Our elderly relatives were scared to death by the experience!

Great location close to the beach, train station, underground, bars, retuaruants, par and some amazing shops! We didn't have to go far to fi d anything we needed to see Barcelona! Staff were very friendly and even let us check in early! Will definately visit again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Terrible hotel with rude staff"
The hotel was of very poor quality. When I arrived the receptionist was rude. I asked if there was a storage space for cases and my bike, he said they did not have one. Normally hotels do have this space. He was generally abrupt and rude. I checked into a room which smelled strongly of cigarettes although I had booked a no smoking queen size room. […] When I asked the receptionist he said there was no other room available, although he did not look. The receptionist sent a foul smelling air freshener which I did not use, I ended up opening the window, however outside it was very noisy. This left me at night from time to time opening the window and closing the window, giving me a poor sleeping experience. When I checked out I noticed the door open to a storage room. I asked the morning receptionist about the room and he confirmed it was a baggage storage room. Therefore the night receptionist was lying. I would like a refund for the entire sum, or a voucher redeemable at a good hotel, to compensate if that is achievable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, Great location"
On arrival there was nobody waiting at the front desk, but the man working was siting some papers. He didn't acknowledge us for about 5 minutes and then carried on with paperwork before asking for name. He then pointed at 3 places to sign on a form while talking on the phone. He finished the call and quickly gave us 2 room keys and said third floor. […] I appreciate sometimes hotels get busy, but this reception did seem unnecessarily rude. Other than the initial greeting the hotel was nice, all people working at the hotel were pleasant and friendly and we had no complaints Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellantly located for touring all of Barcelona!!"
Clean and tidy hotel. Rooms a bit small, but then again, we only slept there so didnt need much room. Had everything we needed. Was a great location for seeing all of what Barcelona has to offer in the way of food, drink, shopping and sightseeing. Was opposite the train station and was a doddle to get to and from the airport.

"Good struation - handy for everything in Barca"
We go to Barcalona for the cultural experience - Picasso, Joan Miro, MACBA, Tapies, MNAC etc. It is a shame there were no classical music concerts being staged while we were there - other than classical Spanish guitar. However, we ate well - avoiding city centre rip-offs - and met with kindness and gentility from the local people. Barca is one of our […] favourite places. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"If we can help it, would stay somewhere else"
The best things about this hotel is its location, but when we arrived our room had sugar and chocolate on the desk and the floor wasn't very clean as you could feel lots of bits underneath your feet, couldn't walk around bare footed. The top blanket had lots of stains on it, some not that old, we asked for it to be changed and it was put in the cupboard […] with nothing to replace it. The photos all seem to be of the first floor rooms, where the corridor looked a lot nicer, the rest of the hotel was out of date and the rooms very small. The location of the hotel is great, so if you can't afford anything more than this and want to be around great resturants and just off the main tourist bit, it is great for that.

At arrival, the person at reception was speaking on the phone with his mate and never even acknowledged us. After a few minutes, he did hang up but was not a pleasant welcomer either.

"Good all rounder for Barcelona"
Minutes from Barceloneta metro. The room (425) had a black out screen for the window and cannot say there was ever excessive noise from outside. The wifi signal was a bit sketchy. There was a luggage room we could leave he bags on checkout day. I left a piece of jewellery in the room on check out and it was handed in to reception by housekeeping by […] the time we got back to collect the bags. Never used bar or restaurant so cannot comment on that. Overall would recommend and would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"In Barcelona, in 1972, Colin Stein scored one..."
For our first trip to Barcelona, we were advised by friends that the Gothic Quarter was the area to stay. Based on reviews, we decided to book with Park Hotel. We couldn't have picked a better hotel in terms of location. There was an abundance of good restaurants and many lively bars within four blocks, Barceloneta Metro stop less than 5 mins walk, […] and Port Vell harbour and Parc de la Ciutadella ten mins walk away in opposite directions. The hotel itself was good value. Staff were extremely helpful and rooms always clean. The shower was one of the best and most powerful I have had in a European hotel. Minor criticism was that WiFi was quite temperamental with being able to log on - that said, it was free to guests so not a big issue. Overall, we would happily recommend Park Hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona. A great base to explore a wonderful city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here for 4 nights in November 2012. We had a standard room which overlooked the side alley way. The room was small but clean. Fine for a couple or a single person. Maybe friends/relatives would like a bigger room. There was a large wall mounted TV, and reasonable sized bathroom. The shower was fantastic. The room was serviced everyday and kept […] v clean with all toiletries replaced. It had double glazing which did block out a lot of noise but as its a city you will still hear some city life. Inside noise was OK although we could hear phones ringing in other rooms and clattering of maids carts v occasionally. Ear plugs block this out completely for a great nights sleep. Breakfast staff were v nice and pleasant, but sadly staff on reception were pretty indifferent. They got the job of checking in and out and few directions done but with no warmth or care really. Breakfast was included for us and was fine - a selection of cooked meats, and eggs, cheeses, breads, fruits, yogurts and a nice coffee machine. It set us up for the day and was of average quality. the location was a major plus point. directly opposite Franco station and not far from the metro for v easy traveling. Located near to plenty of spa type shops, restaurants/tapas bars, and bars in the lovely gothic quarter. No problems finding anywhere to eat, or shop. And very near to tourist attractions and the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was nice and are placed great. Got wheelchair and had a room at 7th floor (722). It had bathtub, which are a misunderstanding by many, cause a chair are easier for many disabled, but the tub are nice. The room has 2 queen size bed which I prefer when not traveling with my husband. Wi-fi wasn't great there (didn't contact them about it) […] unless the weekend. Cleaning was not the best, but again we didn't contact them. No clean glass in the 12 days we had the room :O (neither bathroom or the drinking glass). The lifts are small - the right are smallest, but a regular wheelchair can be in it. Think the width of door are about 68cm and the room a little more). Outer doors are manual - open 2 doors at once to get in/out. The breakfast was fine, and they got a ramp down to the area. The fruit was whole and not cutted, which I prefer, so I didn't eat as much of it as usual, there wasn't many changes in fruit, meat, cheese ect when we lived there. Love the location and I think that they would have changed some of the 'nots' if we had told them. Will maybe choose it again next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location and very convenient for Franca stn"

Appeared to be recently refurbished. Good buffet breakfast with juice, fruit, cereals, hot & cold selection, good DIY coffee machine; but very slow chain toaster.

"Excellent location for all the sights"
Overall a good hotel, comfortable room although I would have preferred a carpeted floor rather than wood effect. Very good light/sound shuttering, excellent wide screen TV, and good breakfast buffet. All good, no complaints !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Firstly, the location of this hotel is simply the best for the Estacio de Franco train station (directly opposite) which made it an easy trip to & from airport, but it's central location also makes easy work of sight seeing, it really is as central as is possible, but wasn't noisy from either street or road. Our room was spotless, comfy and large double […] room size with excellent bathroom facilities especially the shower. A self activated safe was handy for valuables. The entrance hall, lobbies & communal areas were tastefully decorated & clean & tidy. Lifts are available, but the staircase is beautiful!! The dining room was clean tidy and generally attractive. The breakfast was more than adequate. A good continental style of cereals, fruit, breads & pastries & cooked sausages, bacon, eggs (boiled, fried, scrambled) coffe juices etc. The staff were friendly, welcoming & helped us with anything from directions, to advice on tours and were happy to supply pots of boiling water for my own tea making in the my room. They were also kind enough to look after our bags before & after check-in/out. Also kind enough to print out our boarding passes for us. All in all, this hotel served it's purpose beautifully, I wouldn't hesitate in returning and would highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I stayed with my friend for 3 nights in Park Hotel. We had everything we needed in the room and we missed something it was not a problem as we didnt spend much time there anyway. Hotel is close to everything so we walked everywhere. 2 metro stations r close too if you need to get anywhere further or tired of walking. One minor we couldn't get AC working […] so had to keep windows opened at night which was a bit noisy because of the bar nearby. But that didn't ruin our night sleep. Staff was helpful and kept out bags locked the last day as our flights were in the evening. Nice hotel if you want to stay in the middle of everything. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"1950's character & style in great location"
Had a fantastic stay at this hotel. Well worth paying a little extra for a superior room and our balcony, on the top floor, was simply out of this world. Probably not for children, anyone unsteady on their feet or with vertigo, but rooms are available on lower floors. Our superior room was ample size, incl. kingsize bed, comfy bed settee, large bathroom […] with window and minibar. Minority of rooms have balconies, so worth asking if you want one. Don't come to this hotel expecting the latest in new-fangled designer furnishings or technology (though there is a large flatscreen TV in all rooms). However if you want a stylish 1950s design classic, refurbished by the original architect's son, worn in places but full of quirkiness and character, then this would be a good choice. It's also very well-placed on the edge of the gothic quarter, trendy El Born and close to 19th century fisherman's quarter, Barceloneta. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Really Nice Area"
Hotel was in a very pleasant area (in Old Town) near a Metro station, and right across the street from a train station. Room was nice, and I was even given one with a small balcony. The only issue was the shower was very small, and hot water (I mean, scalding hot) would abruptly come on at least once during a shower, so I had to be careful and try to […] dodge it that when it happened. I enjoyed staying there otherwise, though. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My only complaint about this hotel was the lack of storage. There was not one drawer in the room and the shower - no place to put anything. No shelf so you landed up balancing soap on the shower fixture and shampoo on the floor. A little too minimalist for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel, nice location"
The hotel was clean and the hotel desk clerk was friendly and efficient. My room was small but tidy and worked fine for a one night stay prior to departing on a cruise ship. The bed was not the most comfortable, but again, for one night it was acceptable. The surrounding area is lively with lots of sightseeing, shopping and restaurants within walking […] distance. I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
