We recently spent 4 nights at the Hotel Europark. Our stay was very enjoyable. The hotel was initially chosen as we were looking for somewhere with a pool and Tripadvisor comments recommended this as a good choice. The hotel was very quiet and comfortable, located close to the Metro and supermarket for essentials and the staff were all very helpful. Our rooms were great and housekeeping looked after them well. We would recommend the Hotel Europark to other travellers.

We had a great stay in Hotel Barcelona Universal for five nights from 14 till 19 September. We stayed there during our Herbalife Extravaganza, because it looks good on the website and it was central to Palau Saint Jordi, where the convention was.
It was better than expected. Friendly staff who appoliziged that we had no rooms together (3 families). Beautiful room, clean and have everything you need.
There was a wide choice at breakfast. The nice swimming pool on the roof gives us a nice view over the city and a pleasant relaxing bath.
This hotel will be our standard whan we visit Barcelona. Till next year!

It was our second stay at this wonderful hotel. Strengths of this hotel are:
- Its central location in relation to both the historical center and as well as the business districts of Barcelona.
- Highly comfortable and well equipped rooms with a very neat room service
- A varied breakfast buffet with an accurate, pleasant service
- A very friendly and efficient organization at the reception desk
- ICT facilities
- The stunning roof terrace with its surprising view of the surrounding neighborhood
An absolute must for those who want a carefree stay in a bustling metropolis.
I’d most certainly wish to return at Europark Hotel.

We came for four days to Barcelona and booked our room at Europark Hotel thanks to the good feed backs on TripAdvisor…and we absolutely don’t regret it. The Hotel was very nice and the staff very helpful. The swimming pool was a real delight after long hours of walk around most of Barcelona’s must see sights. The only weak points of our room I could find are that it was right under the breakfast room and it was a bit noisy from 6 am, and that we heard many doors slapping early in the morning (especially the one separating us from the lobby – our room was on the ground floor)
However we really enjoyied our stay!
Thanks Europark team.

This is our second time spending a week in Barcelona at the Hotel Jazz. For the price it’s unbeatable. Comfortable rooms with contemporary Spanish design. Great rooftop pool – not huge, but not a puddle like at some other design hotels like Cram. The rooftop pool has enough comfortable loungers, enough nice fluffy towels, and a nice little bar.
Very helpful and friendly desk staff. Great central location right in between the main square (Plaza de Catalunya, direct bus to airport, Corte Ingles department store) and the Eixample/Gracia shopping, restaurant and nightlife area.

My 2 grown daughters, wife and I stayed in two rooms at the Barcelona Universal Hotel from July 29-August 1. It was a wonderful stay. The hotel staff assisted us with hotel and non-hotel matters: from recommendations for great restaurants and the best way to use the subway, to changing my daughters’ room (within 5 minutes!) when one of my daughters said the mattress was too soft for her taste and to arranging a late check-out. Our rooms were very clean and inviting. The hotel offered excellent value for the rate which we paid. In recent years, I can’t remember having a better hotel experience.
The only recommendation for improvement that I would make is the result of me being a vegetarian. The buffet breakfast (which was included in our rate) had an excellent range of meats (which I don’t eat), but had very little in the way of salads or fresh vegetables. There was some cheese, fresh fruit and yogurt, but only tomatoes (no lettuce, cucumbers or salads as such). I would encourage the addition of fresh salads or salad vegetables.
I would enthusiastically recommend this hotel to friends (even vegetarians) and will choose it again if/when we return to Barcelona.

We are Silvia e Matteo from Italy. We stayed in Europark Hotel for four nights, from July 25 to 29. Since we entered, we found the hotel simply perfect! The place is very charming, near the centre of a wonderful city, just few steps from a Metro station.
The staff is kind and efficient; when we saw our room we thought “this is a four star, not a three!”: it was spacious, with design furniture, a big double bed and a comfortable bathroom. The swimming pool on the roof was perfect to take a rest after a tiring day.
We thank you for your kindness and your interest and we hope to come back soon!

Das Hotel Barcelona Universal hat unsere Erwartungen voll erfüllt. Zimmer, Frühstück, Service ob an der Rezeption oder an der Dachterassenbar, alles in unserem Sinne gut. Das Zimmer 218 hatte sogar noch eine große Terasse, so dass vor dem Zubettgehen dort noch ein Bier genommen werden konnte. Wir würden bei einem Aufenthalt in Barcelona erneut dieses Hotel buchen. Sehr empfehlenswert.

The evening of June 23rd is the Eve of Fire before the Feast Day of St John the Baptist. Revetlla de Sant Joan is the Catalan name for this Eve.
In Barcelona and related Mediterranean areas, ancient pre-Christian traditions related to fire festivities are still among the most popular. Bonfires are lit in the streets or on the sand of the beaches, the rituals are jumping over the fire, touch the water that is blessed in the night or asking for some wishes, and there are fireworks too. Special meals are also served on this occasion. Coca de Sant Joan, a traditional Catalan pastry, can be found on every table.
Both if you are plannig to go to the beach, or staying in one of our terraces in Barcelona, make sure to enjoy this magical Eve and be ready for firecrackers and fireworks all night long.
We have just stayed in your fabulous hotel (Europark) for four nights, 16 of us celebrating my 40th birthday….we had a blast!!!
Absolutely everything exceeded our expectations. The hotel was in a great location to enable us to explore all the sights of Barcelona. Countless bars & restaurants in the nearby vacinity & the most helpful, friendly staff I have ever encountered. The reception staff were always willing to suggest good restaurants, call cabs & generally help with everything we needed. In addition to the great service was the cleanliness of the hotel (rooms, restaurant,bar,reception,pool area)all areas were kept immaculate.
I would,indeed & already have recommended the Hotel Europark to my friends & family. I would love to return!
Please thank your wonderful staff….they made our stay very enjoyable.
