Hotel Paral-lel is the perfect budget hotel. Nice, clean, simple designed, new looking rooms. Cleaning service perfect. Everything we needed. Kind and helpful people at the desk. Perfect also with children. Ca. 20 min walk to Rambla. Short walk to Paral-lel metro station. Small playground around the corner. Can truly be recommended.

I was recommended this hotel by a friend who stayed here previously and it did not disappoint. Big room with a large balcony (although no outdoor furniture to make use of it), TV, decent wifi, spacious bathroom. Breakfast was outstanding - heaps of choice and replenished constantly. The lovely lady who was there for the five mornings we ate there works super hard and does a great job. Location is fantastic, a couple of minutes from the metro, and about 20 mins walk to many major sights, and best of all, just around the corner from an awesome strip of top quality pinxto bars that seem to be busy every night of the week! Mini bar prices are steep but there are two or three little supermerkats on the same street as the hotel selling water, beer, anything else you need very cheap. Similarly while we were hoping to use the laundry service but found the prices very steep, there are fortunately laundromats very close by.

As most of the previous reviews this hotel punches well above its weight. Easy and quick check in, a silent and smooth lift took us to our room 401. Large for a city hotel and an immaculately clean room and bathroom. We have no hesitation in recommending it. Some great Tapas bars (used by locals) in the same street. No view from the window, but hey you are not paying for the view, just for a comfortable and modern place to put your head down. Free safe was a bonus.

As an American I can tell you it's not safe, period. Within an hour we were confronted by young men shouting etc. due to our nationality. Protestors are nearby. Taxi drivers will tell you it's not a safe area. Rooms are small, shower fell apart, hallways are narrow and not well lit. Breakfast was excellent, staff very good, but that's not enough to book there. Travel Advisor charged $225. Total price was $125. Why the difference? Sorry but this property invites problems for Americans.

Was here in July/2017 with my wife. We are a young cuban couple visiting Barcelona for 4 days. Staff was very kind. Breakfast in the 2nd level mini restaurant was also good. The ladies there were always very kind. The room had street view, not super big but fair enough. Internet connection great. An elevator change occur while our stay but always the staff gave us preference to take it. Very well location, super near of Paral-lel Metro Station. I would definitely return I have the chance.

We were not actually staying at the hotel, but I wanted to thank Juan for his assistance during our dilemma with our booked accommodation elsewhere. He assisted us with offering the Wi-Fi code to a couple in need. We were able to find our accommodation and conversed with our host due to his excellent customer service. Thank you. You saved our trip to Barcelona.

I stayed here from 11th - 14th September and was immediately happy with the hotel. The reception service was extremely helpful and the hotel in general had a very pristine feel to it. The room was a decent size with plenty of floor space and the bathroom was lovely. The only downfall I would mention is the shower head holder was pretty low in comparison to any hotel I've stayed in. Obviously the shower head can be removed to bypass this problem but people with back problems etc may find this a little difficult. The location was perfect, just a 2 min walk away from the metro station and again a 2 min walk from the streets with tapas restaurants, and also fast food if people are looking for this too. I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

This is a great little boutique hotel in an ideal location. About a 10 minute walk to La Ramblas and, more importantly, only a 2 minute walk to the Paralel Metro Station, from where you can get all over the city quickly and easily. Hotel is comfortable and spotlessly clean, and the reception staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Only downside is that there are no teamaking facilities in the rooms.

We (2 adults, 2 children) recently stayed here for one night while waiting to board our cruise, we stayed in a family suite which was spacious and had a large terrace to sit and have a glass of Estrella. The location is excellent, near Las Rambla's and not to far from the port. The hotel staff were extremely helpful, we arrived a couple of hours before checking in time but they made sure we could access our room as soon as possible as our children were tired. We will be staying here next time we visit Barcelona so I would not have any reservations about recommending this hotel to anyone.

Location near the city center and only a few hundred meters to the nearest metro station so I could easily get to the congress I attended. Clean rooms with the service I needed. Satisfying Wifi access
