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.

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.

The greatest sight in Barcelona is definitely the Sagrada Familia. Building began in the late 19th-century and was the dream of Gaudi who worked on it for over 40-years until his death in 1926. It is still a work-in-progress and they hope to have it completed by 2026 for the 100th anniversary of Gaudi's death.
The next stop was Park Guell …
This morning we walked over to the Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família which was designed by the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí.
We then jumped on the Hop-on Hop-off Bus that took us by all the major sights of the city. This gave us a good overview of Barcelona and will allow us to hop-off at several sights tomorrow.< …
In the early afternoon, we caught a British Airways flight from Prague with a connection in London Heathrow Airport. After a 2 1/2 hour layover in Heathrow, we flew via British Airways and arrived in Barcelona, Spain around 9:00 in the evening.
The flights were on-time and all our luggage arrived with us....life is good!

Hop on/off bus stop close by, so we set off to find that. It is a lovely day, sunny but not too hot. No rain in sight either. We did all the bus tour which usually takes several hours. We were blown away by the absolutely stunning architecture of Barcelona. Didn't realise how different the Gaudi style of architecture was. A big surprise for us.
We were able to get into our room, so after we settled our stuff in we ...
