Off we went to visit Barcelona Zoo which was 35 minutes' walk from our hotel. This was my first time visiting a zoo outside of London and this was Rudi's first time visiting a Zoo.
We bought the tickets at the entrance which were 19.95 euros per person, I did find them to be quite expensive although looking at the prices for the London Zoo …
Another day in the sunny Barcelona town, the best feeling in the world is when you walk out of the hotel and you feel that burst of hot air hit your face. LOVE IT!

So this was more of a relaxing day, due to Rudi hurting his feet the previous day with his brand new shoes that he bought in England.
Unfortunately this wasn't going to be a day to walk around much so me and Rudi went to Dino and Pan for breakfast to have our usual croissant and glass of fresh orange juice.
Poor guy had to go to the …
Good Morning to the 3rd day in Barcelona! It was an early morning for us because we had to get up early to get to the meeting point where the coach would pick us up to take us to PortAventura theme park.
We took a cab to get to the meeting point which wasn't far at all, but as we don't know the city well we didn't want to get lost and …

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Paral.lel Barcelona
A great Hotel to stay at. Newly refurbished room. Nice and clean. Simple and yet comfortable. FREE WIFI in rooms and they have pc in the reception area. Takes about 25/30 mins walk to the the marine/beach. Great walking distance and Las Ramblas can be reached in like 15 minutes. Loads of restaurants near by. For those looking for fast food, there's KFC and Burger King next door. Dino Pan is a place i recommend its 2 min walk from Hotel Paral.lel on the right hand side. They serve coffee and all sorts of drinks and have a great selection of pastries and croissant, sandwiches etc. Lovely for breakfast.
Loads of bus stops and metro stations around. Pretty easy to get everywhere. Shower is great!!
P.S- ask to stay on the higher floors as the breakfast room is located on the first floor.
Would stay again! Thanks!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Paral.lel Barcelona
My single room was clean, the bathroom was fine, the little balcony outside a nice extra. My only complaint was, the phone in my room didn't seem to receive incoming calls, so people arriving for me had to come up and knock. When I asked for a wake-up call the next day at 7:00 am, they sent someone to knock on the door promptly at 7:30. (It wasn't a disaster, just an annoyance.) Still, everyone was nice, housekeeping was immaculate, and the price is right. The tv got BBC news, which was nice. Free internet in the lobby, although it's only one computer and is often being used, so you'd have to wait your turn. The location was great, too--near a major subway stop, walking distance to Las Ramblas, near the labyrinthine, interesting, easy-to-get-lost-in Barri Gotic.
Not luxurious but more than worth it. I'd go back.
This was a much nicer hotel than we expected! My boyfriend and I had also been in Amsterdam and Paris on this vacation, and had booked a less expensive hotel in Barcelona since we weren't staying there as long. Hotel Parallel actually turned out to be the nicest place we stayed! The staff members were very friendly and some spoke quite good English. The location was also great - very close to the Metro, which is definitely the best way to get around (and it's much easier to figure out than some rail systems!) I would definitely stay there again!
Just came back from a weekend in Barcelona and found this 2 star hotel to be well placed (near the Rambla walkway) and very comfortable. 100 euros for a double room - breakfast was a bit much at 8 euros each. Recommend going to the market if its not too hot.
We found the hotel to be clean, modern and well appointed and with friendly staff. Our room was a decent size and the air conditioning fantastic. Although we looked out onto some scruffy apartments it didn't matter as we were out all day!. Slightly dodgy area but not a long walk to the ramblas and the port. Breakfast okay but quite expensive - possibly worth making the effort to find somewhere else for this.
Recommend this Hotel
I booked 4 rooms here for my hen night. When we arrived the hotel had double booked but they made up for it by putting us in a larger room and letting us have the mini bar and breakfast free. Like someone else has said it is like a travel lodge in the UK. It's clean, not too far from Las Ramblas and the staff are very friendly and helpful. For the price we paid everyone was extremely happy.
Met my basic needs
Parallel Hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The accomodations are basic, but included everything I needed, as I was out sightseeing during most of the days I was there. For such a reasonable price, the accomodations were super clean and neat. I am a gay traveler and found that most of the clubs/bars were about 1 metro stop away or a 20 minute walk. I loved this hotel but I would rather have been located farther up Las Ramblas near Catalunya Square to be closer to the action.
Value for Money & great location
We went to barcelona for easter weekend and we found the hotel very easy to find and we coudl walk to the ramblas for dinner and also good for the funicular..
the rooms were like travelinns in uk
Good if you just want to sightsee and need a cheap bed!
Value for money
I found this hotel on the internet and it was cheaper than many others in Barcelona. This is because it's about a 5 minute walk from La Ramblas.
The Hotel was clean, the rooms were not huge, but not tiny and they had a TV, safe, air conditioning. What more could you want for the price, definatley value for money!
Small and Basic
I was given a small room on the second floor, which made for a loud night considering this hotel is on a major thoroughfare. Perhaps that is where they put those that purchase on the discount wed sites? Located a short walk to La Rambla and the port, the location was great. The room was small but very clean, and they had free internet access in the lobby. The ambiance is antiseptic and minimal - not what you would expect in Gaudi Barcelona.
Clean and basic accomodations
We chose this place mainly for its basic service after returning from a week-long cruise. This is a good place for average accommodations - clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful. Note that you have to carry your own baggage to and from your room. Although no taxis are waiting out front, the desk clerk can call and a taxi will arrive in less than five minutes. It is a 20 to 30 minute walk to Las Ramblas and Port Vell area. A taxi ride to the Museo Picasso was approximately 5 minutes. We only stayed one-night, but would consider it a good value if you only need a place to sleep and shower - a decent place to allow one to explore the city of Barcelona. It did not seem very close to restaurants that I would want to go to, but again we were only there for one night.
