TravelPod Member ReviewsEuroPark Hotel Barcelona
The Europark is a modern hotel in the Eixample district of Barcelona. It is 20 mins walk to the Sagrada Famiglia , 5 mins to nearest Metro station and 20 to 30 mins from other main areas of interest. We chose room 901, which has a balcony but beware the high step to get onto it! The bed was very large and comfy. The room and bathroom decorated in modern black and white. Quite a good buffet breakfast but the scramble egg needs to be got as soon as it is put out. I would recommend to anyone who is over for just a couple of days doing the sightes.

Historical Traveler Reviews EuroPark Hotel Barcelona
Good base for sightseeing.
Stayed March 2004, Good location for visiting all attractions, Nice clean rooms(don't expect them to be large it is a mid-price city hotel remember), Breakfast was nice, typically european (bread,meat,cheese and cakes!) Lifts are very small and hold only 2 peple at a time.
Remember to ask for a 'room with natural daylight' as alot of Barcelona hotels have inside rooms which don't have windows and are quite small and dark(but still they are only for sleeping in!). Staff where friendly and will give you a map of the city if you ask. In walking distance (10-15 mins)of the famous catherdal (sagrada familia) and Las Ramblas. Bar closes at 22:30. Get a taxi from the airport though don't try to find it yourself!!. Would stay at the Europark again (if wanting a reasonable room for a affordable price- if you like expensive luxury look elsewhere). Barcelona was great.

I stayed in the Europark Hotel February 2003 and found the room very small and basic. There was a terrible smell coming from the sink and some staff members on reception were not very helpful at all. We paid a lot for the weekend in this hotel and felt that it was overpriced.
Weekend visit to Barcelona
I stayed in the Europark Hotel for a long weekend in Dec 03. The room was small, dark and very hot - we found it hard to sleep. There was air conditioning but it did not seem to work effectively. Saying that the room was clean and we did not spend much time there as there was so much to do and see in Barcelona. The hotel staff on the front desk were not in the least bit friendly. It was a very impersonal hotel.

Europark Hotel, Barcelona
I stayed at the Europark for two nights a week ago and found my room dark and dingy with little natural light - felt claustrophobic and cramped. Facilities were fine but the breakfast was a rip-off 9 Euros for a meagre buffet style spread - avoid it at all costs and find a local cafe instead. Good location though - set in the Eixample Dreta, it was a great place to use as a base with many of the Modernista buildings within easy reach. Do not believe the marketing that says you can see the Sagrada Familia from the hotel! If you can get a good room rate deal, go for it but do not expect high standards. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Perfect for Weekend Break
Great Little hotel right in the middle of everything. All the sights are easily accessible by foot or by the really easy to use and safe Metro. Staff were very friendly and full of information on request. Breakfast wasn't great but adequate. Could see the Church Familia - Gaudi's masterpiece from our room and this being one of the most famous Barcelona landmarks meant you knew you were there every morning just by looking out the window. Can't wait to go back there.

... and although I didn’t have the instructions, I knew I’d need to go to Plaza de Catalunya. There was a young couple from the U.K. seated behind me that also wanted to disembark there.
When I arrived, I tried to use the GPS to find the hotel, but unfortunately it wasn’t listed so I had to retrieve my Guidebook from my large pack. I found out later that the hotel name had changed, and it IS in the GPS under its former name. I had a bit ...
... Guell which is this really famous park were the even more famous Gaudi consturcted a whole wall of mosiac benches next to this amazing view of the city. It was great, unfortunately, I wore terrible shoes - But the view was still incredible. We also saw the Sagrada Familia, which is another of Gaudi's pieces. Since is wasn't finished when he died, they (whoever they are) have been working on finishing it. He died almost 100 years ...
... stupour until about 8.40. We had dinner at Centre Cultural Euskal Etxea, a Basque restaurant and tapas bar. We had the set menu, fried chorizo, a blue cheese salad, fish and duck and just because the waitress liked us so much she gave us two desserts! Just what we needed! All washed down with a couple of glasses of cava (spanish sparkling wine) and a bottle of Rioja. Hit the sack at about ...

The rest of the tour was uneventful, well no more problems at least. Then we travelled to the Sagrada Familia (Gaudi's Cathedral) scheduled to be finished in 2026, a very impressive structure. We also visited two apartment blocks that ...
