It's not the hotels fault about the outside 106 is very noisy ....the hotel is great for the metro, 15 mins walk to las ramblas...but remember this is only a two star hotel, if you want more, then pay more..... it's very clean, good location, good price...

Having just spent Christmas staying at the Para-lel which was ideal for mine & my daughters needs. Hotel is spotless room sizes are adequate some have little patios which went down well with me! Don't expect great views just enjoy a bit of outdoor space after a long day sightseeing. Rooms have a fridge stocked with reasonably priced drinks €2.50 for a beer. However many supermarkets on the doorstep for a cheap bottle of vino. The location couldn't be better so near the metro which gets you directly to most of the main tourist attractions. Juan on reception is super helpful & polite. I'm looking forward to my next visit to Barcelona & staying in the Para-lel

Everything was just perfect ! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Breakfast food available would put some 4 star hotels to shame ! Very near to metro busses etc . I will definitely be staying again .

Good location within walking distance from metro station. About 15 mins walk to famous La Ramba area and many other touristic places. Great breakfast for the price of room. Big room consider in a city center. Helpful and polite staff.

The hotel is located in the center of Barcelona near the metro so it is very easy to get everywhere you want.we prefered to walk and see the city these 6 days we stayed there so we used the metro only for a few times... The room was very clean, it had air condition, a big toilet, a desk and a tv. The personel was very kind and helpful and they all speak english (special thanks to Joan for his advice!) The price for the room was very good and near the hotel you can find restaurants cafeterias super markets and grocery stores! To reach the hotel from the airport you can take the metro or the "aerobus".the cost is about 6 euros and if you take the metro you take the line that takes you to the station "paral.lel" and from there it is a 5 minute walk to the hotel. So this is a very recommended hotel if you visit Barcelona!

Impressions are very good. Everything was like I expected. Location is great, breakfast was very tasty. The hotel is small, but very cosy, clean, homelike. Personnel care about their guests. I really enjoyed staying in Paral-lel.

Booked this hotel for one night, room was clean and tidy and looked very well kept, just like the rest of the hotel. Breakfast was good, location is perfect. I can't really think of one bad thing about the hotel. Also free wifi available. When I return to Barcelona I would defenitly book this hotel again.

Amazing localisation, nice 2 stars hotel really close to the Pinchos street in Barcelona. The breakfast is surprisingly good and the room was perfectly clean. The staff is also really friendly, and you are so close to the Metro station. I recommend it.

Brilliant hotel....clean and very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is well located about 100m from the nearest Metro station, but is a reasonable walk to the sights if you want to. The breakfast was great and meant that I did not need lunch ! I cannot understand why it is only two stars - modern, clean, plenty of hot water and good bathrooms....should be at least four stars!!.....would definately stay again

I’ve stayed here 3 times and every time I feel welcomed and at home. It’s very handy for the metro and connections to and from the airport. It’s also very close to some great restaurants and tapas & pincho bars, the highlight being Quimet & Quimet just down the street
