Reviewed 25 April 2014

We spent a couple of nights at the Hotel Paral.lel on our first visit to Barcelona and thoroughly enjoyed the city and the hotel. Paral.lel is a fairly small, smartly decorated establishment which provides comfy accommodation, a decent breakfast and a pleasant welcome from its staff. Its location is excellent for exploring the city, as it is very close to a metro station, near to lots of eateries and within walking distance of many of the main attractions. The hotel provides excellent value for money and the only down side is the number of homeless sleeping in the doorway and is the reason I gave the hotel four stars instead of five.

Hotel Paralel.lel offered great value for money in a very convenient location. It is basic but very clean and great staff.
No tea/coffee making facilities in room.
The hotel is within easy walking distances to most things, and when you need to take the metro or bus, the stops are really close by.

Very nice hotel. Good Location. Very clean and nice staff. I stood here for nearly a week and I don't have nothing bad to say about the hotel. The only remark I have regards the bed witch had less blankets that it was supposed. As the weather was a bit cold, and extra blanket would be apropriate.

Everything was good. Paral-lel street may be a noisy at night time but that's not a big problem. Also wi-fi wasn't available at my room when i arrived, but hotel workers corrected it immediately after i told them. So i hope to get back there someday!

2 Single women aged 35 and 43, went 23rd - 27th March 2014. We booked twin single beds (the photos look like the beds are double but they were single), thought our booking included breakfast and went to the breakfast room every morning, staff asked for our room number which is not unusual, however, it was only when we were booking out were we stung for 30 euros each for breakfast for 3 days. If you are purchasing a room with breakfast, make sure you take a screen print of your order before submitting for payment and make sure it is on your email booking confirmation. Apart from this little niggle the hotel staff were extremely friendly and helped me when I tried to use my very basic Spanish. The breakfast included plain or strawberry yoghurt, 3 types of small rolls, 3 types of sliced bread (wholemeal, white and a denser bread), pineapple, orange, peach juices, flavoured tea bags as well as the normal breakfast tea bag, sachets of chocolate powder, coffee, muffins, custard and plain croissant, one morning we had pizza, the next was a fruit cheesecake like desert and the next was Spanish omelette, there was an open toaster so used my noggin and was able to make cheese on toast was also able to use it to warm up the pizza and omelette! Room was clean, towels changed every day, tv had cnn and bbc news plus the usual Spanish channels, free wi fi. Lockers cost 1euro (which you don't get back) and we were able to fit both our suitcases (50x 40 x 20) in one locker. Lockers were in a locked laundry room. Hotel was very easy to find, we used the aero bus from the airport and walked from Placa Espanya. This hotel is on the lower end of town and yes there were two tramps that slept in the doorway next to the hotel but they never bothered us. There is also a burger king and KFC within a few steps. We liked the hotel because it was close to La Rambla and the harbour without having the noise of the traffic, also close to the metro and funicular for Montjuic. We didn't hear our neighbours so cant comment on the thin walls, however, it would have been nice to have tea making facilities, instead we bought a bottle of sangria!

Room Tip: we were in room 407 which faced the side road so was away from the morning traffic
