... kilometres away due to a 24 hour taxi strike throughout Europe. Sick of dragging their suitcases across the cobbled footpaths they took the Metro to the centre of the village then continued their long walk. They eventually arrived at their hotel tucked away down a narrow alley in the Gothic Quarter, within sight of the Cathederal. The Relays & Chateaux Hotel Neri is a 12th century boutique hotel of about thirty suites. Part of the hotel consists of a ...
... no idea where the street was where our apartment was located. Finally we walked into a laundromat to use their wifi, and the lady that work there took out a little book of maps to help us. She said, "follow me.." and went out the back door of the laundromat into the alley where our apartment was. No wonder we couldn't find it...it was HARDLY a street. We spent 3 good nights there at the apartment on the 6th floor in this alley/street with ...
... person room but it was really nice because it was like the bed was in a cubby and each had a curtain so the noise was blocked and couldn't see the light coming in and the bed was so comfy. Since it was 2 am at that point we just went to bed. The next morning we decided to do a free walking tour to get a feel of the city and learn some history. It was a very good tour, brought us throughout the whole city and learned about Barcelona. Barcelona is in the region Cataluna, ...
... worker came in, took my ticket and left. By this time there are three others in our compartment with us. The man came back with the woman, and handed a phone to Jessica. She was on the phone for maybe 2 minutes, and by the time she was done her head was in her hands, and she just kept saying okay. We had to buy new tickets, since our tickets didn't work for this train. Of course this ticket to Warsaw, cost almost as much as the ticket from Krakow to Berlin. Suddenly we were starting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hotel Barcelona
The Park Hotel is in a fantastic position, in El Born with lots of interesting shops, bars and restaurants nearby.
There is a metro stop around the corner and the open-top tourist bus stop is just down the road.
The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are very modern. The staff are helpful and the hotel seems to run very efficiently.
Breakfast is served in the ABAC restaurant and is very nice.
In November 2004 I booked a room in the Park Hotel for April 2005 via HRS (Hotel Reservation Network). The room rate should be confirmd at least 6 weeks before. 6 Weeks before I asked 3 times for the confirmation via HRS, but the hotel din`t react or denied to give it. Therefore I canceled the reservation, but now, 4 weeks before my trip, all hotels are much more exensive, because there is an exhibition in barcelona. That is very annoying. So better be careful with the Park Hotel. I don't feel quite good to have given my credit card number to a hotel, which I can't trust.
Very Stylish Hotel!
Great hotel, very stylish and well priced. When we stayed they were half way through renervation and were originally given a room that hadn't been refurnished. We requested a better room, had to wait an hour but then got a really cool room. Breakfast is good too. Great Location!!
Quiet and central
A great little hotel on the edge of the trendy Born area but with rooms overlooking quiet side streets. First built about 50 years ago but completely renovated. Small but well fitted out rooms have quite thin walls but any noise overcome by the reassuring hum of the very effective air-conditioning. Helpful staff, good breakfast included in the 135 euro room rate. Very good location, all of old city in easy walking distance, Barceloneta seafood restaurants and beach only 10 minutes walk away. In the same building is the fashionable gourmet Abac restaurant - very expensive but well worth it if you like that sort of thing. Recommended.
Lovely hotel, great location, NON-SMOKING ROOMS
Loved this hotel. Perfect location: close enough to walk to many major sites in different directions (but Barcelona Metro is so easy to use anyway), but outside the main tourist area. Especially loved the proximity to Ciutadella Park, which is a jewel of a park, and one of the great places to run that I have ever experienced (I am a runner and always try to stay close to a park for that reason). Staff was very helpful, breakfast, included in the rate, was excellent. This hotel also had non-smoking rooms, a very valuable feature in a country where smoking is rampant. We asked for quiet room, and our room was on the side of the hotel that overlooks a pedestrian street. All in all, we would certainly stay at the Park hotel again.
Nice room - shame about the noise
This hotel was well sited for the old town and harbour - nice neat rooms - friendly staff - well priced.
Lots of little bars and restaurants close by.
Its a shame that one of these restaurants was below our room and it always seemed to open just as we were going to bed. V. Noisy.
A pleasant stay
My family and I enjoyed two nights at the Park hotel which is situated on the edge of the Barri Gothic area of Barcelona, opposite the main railway station and 2 minutes walk from the port/marina area. Very comfortable rooms and bathrooms, excellent breakfast (sons recommend the hot chocolate) with friendly and helpful staff.
