Very nice small but clean hotel. The hotel is walking distance from the Ramblas which is an area full of restaurants and shops. The food was amazing in all the restaurants near the hotel. Staff wasn’t very friendly but efficient with check in and check out.

When You Think You Can't Be More surprised, you come across again with an amazing reception hospitality from Joan.... (long hair and beard guy) he is so friendly and professional, one thing I like in this place.. second time I come here and they always gives us a great room, first time was 215 this time room 502 (amazing) Internet Is Quick, and although the check in time is at 3pm we always arrive around 10 and by 1pm we have our rooms ready. Also You Will love the large selection of food for breakfast, keep it in mind this is 2stars hotel.. but in London standards is 4!! ENJOY Your Stay :) Kind Regards Pedro Caballero Clemente

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The rooms were spacious and modern, and the location was great. Very close to a metro stop, easy access to everything, and walking distance to La Rambla. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was great. The only downside was that I found the bed overly stiff and unforgiving, and not great for my back.

A lovely hotel, room and breakfast, with in walking distance of many bars, restaurants and tapas bars. An interesting walk up to the old town with many streets and ramblers to explore before arriving at the main rambler. Would definately stay again on returning to Barcelona.

We stayed here for 6 nights in barcelona. It is so startegically located that u can walk down to la ramblas or to harbor or placa cataluniya. Also the place ia surrounded by good food, snacks, busstop, metro and grocery. The hotel is neat and clean and staff is very helpful. U can reach in hotel from airport in 60 Euro or u can also take airport bus which vl drop u till placa catalyunia and then u can take airport bus which is 7-8 euro from there which is again very cheap n cheaper then taxi. While staying barcleona take T10 ticket from metro for 10 euro which can u used both in bus and metro for 10 journeys. Plz note if get of a metro n get in a bus immediately it will be counted as 1 trip which makes it very cheap. For indian food go to shailmar n for breakfast go to a cafe next to burger king near the hotel.

The only downside to the short stay overnight was the city tax which we paid twice. Get a receipt for every transaction. Not the money 💰 it was only 1.44 Euro 💶 but paid it twice. Not very honest so our trust was breached. Otherwise it was all passable

The hotel has an excellent location and staff were lovely. However, our room was very close to the escalator - and with very thin walls we were frequently disturbed by other guests. To the point where you can hear conversations word for word. The view was of residential balconies and felt a little exposed. The room was also not as clean as I'd have liked. On the first day there was a mark on the bed spread and was still there after the cleaners had finished the next day, there were also quite obvious dirt marks in the bathroom that had been missed. I try to always give as positive reviews as possible but unfortunately the hotel was a little too disappointing.

Stayed 2 nights pre cruise in this hotel and it was excellent. Only downside is there is no bar or refreshment area. There is a small breakfast room if you book B & B, with a small seating area off it. Really fresh, clean and modern. Excellent and helpful staff. Thank you Jose for helping me with my email problem. Hopefully returning in the near future.

U.S. visitors should know that Hotel Parallel is nothing like a 2 star hotel at home (La Quinta, Fairfield, Comfort Inn). The typical room has two hard twin beds, no artwork, no couches or chairs and vinyl flooring. The bathrooms are modern and clean as is the hotel in general. Other reviewers have raved about the breakfast buffet which is ok but beware that it isn't always included in the room price. I was surprised that my one visit to the breakfast area for a piece of toast generated a $19 charge. Hint not only here but all places that require the key card to be inserted to get A/C and lighting: Use any card instead (grocery loyalty card for example) to prevent the A/C from going off and coming back to a stifling room that may or may not cool down. Would recommend spending a bit more for better quality unless you miss your dormitory days.

The hotel is in a fantastic location for Barcelona attractions and right near a metro stop. The rooms were spotless, and when we had a problem with out tap on the sink the hotel sent someone up to fix it right away. Breakfast selection was good, and the service from all staff we encountered was great. The only down sides were that the beds were not all that comfy and the noise during the night was awful. Being in the city we expect noise from outside the hotel however all the noise was from inside, the walls and doors were way too thin.
