Came here a few weeks ago with my family, the moment we walked in the door we had a wallet stolen (big group - 14 of us) and then 2 whole suitcases from my uncle who was standing in the lobby, on his blackberry with his bags beside him! The men at reception didn't show much care or interest at all - and I later found out that a good friend also had her purse stolen from this hotel bar - apparently its a pickpocket hotspot in particular.

One bonus was the central location - we just walked everywhere.

Apart from that the hotel was totally average, breakfast wasn't very nice, rooms were clean but nothing special.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet, modern room (in our group some had much nicer, more modern rooms than others - same...

Close to Barceloneta metro stop, tourist bus stop & Picasso Museum. Good firm bed & strong shower. Large tv, clean room, decent breakfast and my favorite- the mechanical black-out shade. Staff wasn't terribly warm but helpful. I would bring all your own toiletries- they were not the best quality. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask not to be on the front/street side.

The location of the hotel makes it a good base to visit the city. Barceloneta metro station is a 3 minutes walk away. The Ciutadela park and the Zoo is 100m away from the hotel. The harbor and the beaches are also easily accessed by foot.

If you take the train from the airport, change at Passeig de Gracia for a train to Estacio de França (same platform). That station is situated right across the street, in front of the hotel. If you have bagages, this is far better than taking the Aerobus + metro, as metro stations in Barcelona have often a lot of stairs, without escalator.

Room had a large, comfortable bed. A huge plasma TV. A terrace. Although the street in front of the hotel is very busy, there was no nuisance from the street, as the windows offered a good noise isolation. Room was clean.

although it is not located close to Ramblas, the good thing is that it gives direct access to the airport from Estacio Franca (train station), which is located just oposite, and has also close access to metro. You will not be thrilled from the outside view of the hotel, nor from the reception and the elevator, but rooms are cosy and very clean. In general, rooms have nothing special, but it is an organised hotel, with good breakfast, in a quiet location close to Barceloneta and El Born District, with very nice night life. Prices are not that reasonable but this is Barca.

This was my first time in Barcelona and wasn't my first choice of hotels. The other hotels that I tried were all booked out 4 months in advanced due to the Le Merci festival. Park Hotel was recommended by one of the other hotels, and ended up being a great choice. We stayed for one week and had no problems.

Its in a great location. Forget about Ramblas, the Gothic and Born areas was great. No where near as touristy as many other parts, GREAT food and bars down the various lane ways, and many of the best museums. Plenty of transport for getting around town as well.

The Hotel was modern and clean. The showers were hot and strong, the free WiFi worked well, staff were friendly & helpful and the AC was good. It can be a little noisy at night, but hey, it's Barcelona and you should be on the street contributing to the noise :->. Take a room on the higher floors and close the windows and you probably won't hear a thing. It was a bit pricey for Barcelona, but this may have been due to the festival.

I can recommend this hotel, the area, and being there during Merci (great festival and one big party all weekend)

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. For whatever event you may wish to undertake, our highly qualified personnel will take care of every detail and will work with you in all aspects regarding organisation to guarantee a memorable experience.
