Even though we have been to Barcelona 3 times before, the place always looks different, possibly because staying in a different area gives a different perspective. This time we were in the Europark hotel which is in the Eixample district and convenient for all sites. Our room was on the 9th floor and had a balcony which came into its own on the …
Barcelona! Only a day and a half here, the plan was to see if it was a city we would like to return to, to explore more of. Neither of us had been to Spain before, so this was the one stop where we had no clue of what to expect. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon, and the city was shut down pretty tightly. Which was a good thing for driver Rick. He …
Hola Everyone -
Today was my first day in Barcelona. I arrived at the BCN airport and decided to take the RFE (train) instead of a cab... hey, if I'm in a different city, I might as well try their public transportation. I arrived by train about 500 meters from the hotel (whatever that means) at a place called Passeig de Gracia. I got to …
We started our day with a 4 hour tour of the city. Armando was our tour guide. Or as David would say, "ARR MOON Doe". Poor guy, he really didn´t stand much of a chance. But he was a good sport. I asked him a ¨few¨ questions and he laughed and told me I was "ruining his speech." Apparently, I was getting ahead of his memorized dialogue. But he …
So our "European Vacation" has begun! We headed to the airport with Billie Sue and George for the first leg of our trip - flight to Amsterdam. Although I told Billie Sue about the 1 or 2 bag, but total maximum 50lb, limit for the airplane, she didn’t listen. Am I surprised, of course not. Here’s a picture of her with our poor baggage …

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
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.
Europark Hotel Barcelona
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.
