    great location (take carrer Nou de la rambla, off Aven. Parellel to Ramblas) with supermarket near on Aven. de Parallel between c. Tapioles and c. Margarit. Airport bus on placa espanya at opposite end of Aven. de Parellel to the sea. Beach is 20 min walk or more. had mini bar and tv with sky news, fox (only commercials dubbed oddly not programmes), and bloomberg. no restaurant or bar.

    i dealt with three staff members.. a young guy with long hair and a guy with a small goatie beard - both very nice and efficient. third guy sort of cold to the point of rude. speak in english to them - don't attempt catalan or spanish unless fluent. i was on second floor and was noisy during the day only. doors do slam loudly at hotel - you hear a lot.

    As a party of 27 the hotel looked after us very well. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful. We will probably visit barcelona again in 2013 and I would have no hesitation in booking Hotel Paral-lel again.

    The area in which the hotel is situated is not the best but that did not detract from our visit.

    Possibly the best 2 star hotel in Barcelona at a very reasonable price. Amere ten minute walk from the rambalas but not in the noisy center of town. 150 meters from the nearest metro stop. Reception staff very friendly. Free computer with internet in lobby. Would definitely stay again.

    What I liked during my stay at hotel Paralel is that it did have the internet and the location of the hotel was great.

    I didnt like the fact that the walls were dirty in my room and that their were cracks in the ceiling. The beds were really hard, Im not sure it had anything to do with the size of the bed or not but I didnt sleep very well. The hotel Paralel probably makes alot of money from tourist so they really need to invest in repairing the hotel. The owner should take a walk through floor 0-5 with his staff and make notes on all the things that need to be fixed or improved and not just covered up with a fixer upper. Its sad to say that I found more comfort in the bathroom then the entire room. The 1st two days of my stay the cable or tv wasnt working properly. I found it funny how they had a small fridge to try and make more money on the products that they had in there. And how the hotel would do your laundry for you. Well that money like I stated earlier should be invested in repairing that entire hotel.
