This is a wonderful location for staying whilst in Barcelona, it is 100m from Place de Catalunya, from where you can catch all buses around the city, and to and from the airport. It is the start of las Rambla and is very close to the Gothic quarter. So if you are intending to be out and about 12 hours a day and just need a place to rest your head Citypark is good. However if you are looking for a hotel with a few facilities, choose another one. Citypark is just bedrooms with NO facilities, no lobby, just a different attendant on the door each time we came and went. So for the positives: it has free Wifi, it is clean, daily maid service, it has a safe (essential for Barcelona), the beds are a good size and hard, it is well priced and it is very well located with lots of restaurants and cafes all around the hotel to eat and drink at. On the negative side, the air conditioning does not work, and the rooms are stuffy and hot (this is the beginning of April), so the only option is to open the windows, and then it is like sleeping next to a motorway, or to sweat it out in a hot, airless room. The pillow is about 1 inch thick, and there are no other spare ones in the hotel, the rooms are quite small and there is no comfortable seating/relaxing area in the hotel. It is only a 2 star, and I understand why. However I would return purely because of the location, but I would bring my own pillow and fan and it would be perfect.
