Scratching the surface

... went to. We had 3 tapas dishes and some desert and left about 9.30 and there were still only 3 or 4 other tables occupied. I know they eat late but thatīs ridiculous.
Yesterday we did a hop on hop off bus riade around the city to see some more of it. No more Caudi apart from the drive bys. We stopped at the 1992 Olympic stadium, which is now used as a home ground by the local rugby club! it was original buuilt in 1929 ...

... unbelievable vegetarian dinner at Teresa Carles restaurant on our last night and with fresh ingredients, well rounded flavours and an appreciation for quality vegetarian food, we truly enjoyed every bite. Even vegan banana bread and soy chai lattes for dessert. While it's no seafood paella to satisfy the carnivorous half of this duo, it was an absolutely fabulous way to end our visit to Barcelona, and the paella would just have to ...

We left Levanto on Tue morning with over 900 km in front of us heading toward Barcelona. We crossed the Alps as we headed for Genoa watching the changing landscape. The steep mountains were dotted with character filled little villages that looked like random collections of children's blocks clinging tightly to each to prevent tumbling down the steep ravine. We passed through Italy, into Monarco (you knew ...

... duh!

Today, Yang and I hung out by ourselves, without parental guidance (LOL). We went to chill at the W Hotel and hang out around the beach because last time we were here, Yang didn't have a chance to walk the boardwalk. Its such a nice place. Yang was very happy spotting nude bathers. We walked around a bit before my buddy from Hong Kong sent me a message to join him for ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Paral.lel Barcelona

    Good value


    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.

    Great Hotel!


    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!

    Good location


    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.

    Pleasant Surprise


    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.
