“Easy to underestimate”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

If you judge hotels by star ratings, you might overlook the Park - it only has three stars. And the lifts are small and slightly scruffy, and the the rooms aren't huge. But it's a very nice hotel. The guy on the front desk was excellent, the bed really comfortable, the bar (which serves tapas) is really good, and the location is fantastic. It's reasonably priced, and a really good option to stay in Barcelona.

We spent a long weekend in Barcelona and stayed at the Park Hotel - its location is great with being close to the train station and in between old and new Barcelona - however could be a little noisey with being near a main road! The staff were very helpful, friendly and accommodating - I can't speak for all rooms but our double room was quite small and could have done with refurbishing as it was quite tired but it was clean which was the main thing - the entrance to the hotel was very modern. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as there were a multitude of cafes in the vicinity to choose from. All in all it was a pleasant stay at the hotel - Barcelona is a fantastic city and would love to go back soon.

We enjoyed our stay at Park Hotel. We stayed three nights. We were concerned about noise, seeing that this was on a busy street. They gave us a room in the rear of the hotel. That, and the black-out metal blinds gave us a great night's sleep! Everyone at the front desk was helpful and courteous. Very small room, with the sliding-glass bathroom door, but I found that this is not uncommon in Spain. And we were not spending a lot of time in the room.

The included breakfast was very good, without being too much.

The location was so so great, though. Right by the train station, so the trip from the airport to the hotel was very simple, fast, and cheap. Walkable to the beach and all the other neighborhoods. We even walked to La Sagrada Familia, but that might be a little far for some.

I would stay at this hotel again.

Great location
The hotel is right along a main street within walking distance of many attractions, restaurants, and cathedrals. Dont be afraid to walk around - there are all kinds of little surprise streets and squares that sometimes have random entertainments happening - lots of buskers and street entertainers. And of course there is the most amazing architecture! I felt completely safe here, but do make sure you have read and understand the warnings about pickpockets and take those warnings seriously.

The windows are triple pane, and there is a rolldown shutter (play with the various switches - you'll figure it out). These combine nicely to keep out most of the noise at night - some noise will still get through, but not much. The price you pay for being in the heart of the action.

Check in/out were efficient, staff friendly and very helpful. They will hold your bags if you are off on a cruise and want to investigate Barcelona before you go.

The hotel room was small - very small - but then I didn't come to Barcelona to sit in a hotel room! The bed is firm and very comfortable. The pillows are a bit flat, but you can stack them up for a bit more support. There is a closet, but not a drawer anywhere. There are a few shelves and a safe in the closet. Get some instructions on the use of the air conditioning system if you are not used to European systems, there are no instructions in the room and it can be confusing. It does work well once you figure it out.

The bathroom is surprisingly large. Due to the layout, expect water on the floor after you shower. Lots of hot water, good water pressure. Basic toiletries are provided - soap, shampoo, and a comb!

Just finished a 4 night stay in Barcelona in the Park Hotel. The outside of the hotel does not give the best representation as it does look quite old, however, once inside the decor is very modern and clean. I arrived 2 hours early for check in but the staff were very friendly and still found me a room so I didnt have to wait. I stayed on the second floor, while the view wasnt amazing (facing a side street) it was very quiet and the room was lovely and clean and i got a good wifi connection. The walls were a little thin and i could hear whenever the people in the room above me had a shower or flushed the toilet, luckily i had very quiet neighbours so this was not a big problem for me. There is a wide variety of food for breakfast, something for everyone. The hotel is ideally placed near the centre, everything is very easily reached by foot or by metro. Parc de la cuitadella is literally just to the left of the hotel. The beach and port are a pleasant 10-15 minute walk away, with many shops and restaurants. The nearest metro is Barceloneta, which is not even a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Estacio Franca station is opposite the hotel although not on a direct line from the airport, which got me a bit confused. If getting the train from the airport, get off at passeig de gracia and stay on the same platform, getting the R2 train which then goes to Estacio Franca. On my return journey to the airport, i got the aerobus from Placa Catalunya, which i found a lot easier. Overall, a very lovely stay and i would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

Good location for walking around the Born & Gotic areas.
Rooms basic, pleasant bathrooms, clean. Nice, bright restaurant with a good selection for breakfast, available 07 - 11 each morning. Helpful staff.
Whilst the outside of this hotel is not the most appealing, once inside it is perfectly fine for a city break of 3-4 days. We wouldn't hesitate to use it again - and I like my 5* hotels! But Barcelona can be expensive and we wanted to keep our euros for other things. The restaurant offers tapas in the evenings, we tried it once but not quite our thing but it was well frequented by the local community - so we were the problem not the restaurant.
The hotel is right on the edge of the Born district opposite the Franca train station and the taxi rank (cost 20.96 euros back to T2 airport terminal & 7 euros to Sagrada Cathedral). There are miles of tight, old streets behind the hotel, which open into pleasing squares with some wonderful old architecture - we spent alot of time looking in churches and cathedrals - don't miss the geese!
For lunch try the self-service cafe in the El Corta Ingles Department Store at Placa de Catalunya. Nobody mentions the fantastic city views from this 9th floor cafe nor the reasonably priced food - a closely guarded secret it would seem!

Room Tip: Whilst the front rooms do have balconies, they are onto a busy road, so go cheap and opt for a quiet...

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.
