Just a note to say a massive thank you to the staff at Hotel Paral-Lel, Barcelona! My boyfriend and I have just returned and want to go back ASAP.
The staff were lovely, not over friendly but super helpful. As an architect I was so impressed with the decor. Loved the serenity of the colours in the room and fab wall paper in the hallways. The wi-fi always worked. The shower was great. The bathroom was spacious, modern and a little bit glamorous with the black stone mirror surround. The black-out blinds helped us sleep. The lack of a bar or breakfast area helped us to get up and about into the beautiful Spanish sunshine and tasting the Barcelona Tapas. The lonely planet’s best tapas bar being on the same street was a bonus. The area is safe and close to fun student and artistic areas.
Thanks for booking our airport taxi and the wake-up call.
All the best, hope to see you soon,
Maeve, September 2013.
