We spent 3 nights at this hotel , which is very well located for most things Gaudi and the city centre etc. We were checked in very efficiently by a very informative receptionist and were in our room, which could be accessed by 2 lifts or stairs in minutes. The hotel itself is very modern with spacious rooms, complete with balcony and triple glazing. The one that we were allocated had a 6 foot bed which was very comfortable, writing desk, chairs and 2 built in wardrobes plus 2 drawer units, Sky T.V, aircon and plentiful lighting . The pillows could have been more substantial but there were plenty of them. The safe was free and below was a well stocked fridge with prices that were not out of the way. All doors were very thick and secure which must have added to the soundproofing as we never heard any noise from other guests arriving or leaving. The rooms were very clean as was all of the hotel , which employed an army of cleaners. The bathroom was a good size with walk in shower and a box of toiletries that were renewed each day comprising of soaps, gels, shampoos, comb, shower caps and even a razor. The large mirror was heated to prevent steaming up and hairdryer prominently positioned. Elsewhere in the hotel there was a small pool and sun loungers on the 8th floor. The restaurant and bar on the first, which we never frequented so cannot comment and a free internet service on the ground floor.
As this hotel is situated on the Carrer d'arago that is 6 lanes wide you can expect a bit of traffic noise. We were at the front on the sixth floor and at home live where traffic does not pass by. Although we did hear some traffic noise through the night, it was not excessive. Request a rear facing room if you are a really light sleeper.
Location On exiting the hotel if you turned left , walked for 2 blocks to Passiege de St John then left again for about 4 blocks to where Carrer de Mallorca and Avinguda Diagonal intersect, continue up Mallorca for 6 blocks you come to Sagrada Familia. Incidently! right on the corner of Mallorca is Marbello Cafe ( I think!) where they do an excellent freshly made English breakfast, fresh orange juice and coffee for 6 Euros.
If leaving the hotel and taking a right. Within 1 block is an excellent market with fresh fruit, veg , meat and breads. Walk for 5 blocks you come to Passeig de Gracia, where immediately down to your left and across the street is Gaudi's house, also here is the Metro station. Tip. You can buy a T10 ticket for 8 euros, which entitles you to 10 trips, if there is a party of you, it can be used against each individual rather than buying seperate tickets at 1.40 euros each BEWARE Ensure you don't enter by the ticket gates to the railway as we did, you cannot swap over and it will cost you. The Metro entrance is marked but it is also hidden away to the right beyond the rail entrance. What we were informed by a ticket inspector was. On the metro, one trip means to a place and return. Where on the rail system one trip was only the one way. The next street down from Gracia, is La Ramblas, which stretches right down to the sea, it is a haven for pickpockets as is Sagrada Familia, thankfully the friendly locals went to great lengths to tell us this. Some guests in the hotel had not been so fortunate loosing passports, cards and money. Finally about 4 blocks down right from the hotel on D' Arago is a restaurant called La Rita, it opens at 20:30 hrs. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced hence the queues trying to get a table from 21:00 onwards ( they eat late in Barca. ) A typical 3 course set menu with a glass of wine and a bottle of water is 20 Euros.

Unique Quality: All as above

Directions: Gaudi attractions and near to La Ramblas avenue.

I stayed here five nights on the ninth floor (with balcony) and liked it a lot. The rooms were so clean and decorated in this modernistic Ikea type of way. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. I wrote more about the Hotel Europark, with photos on a website about my wonderful stay in Barcelona at http://barcelonafunguide.com. I will say that being able to walk just about anywhere from the front steps of the hotel made my stay that much more enjoyable.
On the negative side, the pool was kind of small. There was just one computer in the business center and it was often taken, but the rooms came with high-speed internet that worked great. I loved sleeping on the comfortable sheets with the good ac turned up.

Unique Quality: The location and cleanliness were the best characteristics.

Directions: Four blocks from the Sagrada Familia and La Ramblas

I didn't actually stay in Hotel Europark, but my mother did when she came to Barcelona to visit me in November 2005. The hotel was undergoing an expansion into the building next to it, but the construction never interrupted her sleep or bothered her while she was staying at Europark. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful (the two maid were exceptionally friendly) and guests have free internet access in the café on the 1st floor of the hotel. The single rooms are a bit small, but there's not much more you can expect to get in downtown Barcelona in this price range.

Unique Quality: The rooms are very nice, but the best part of the hotel is its location. It is in Dreta de l'Eixample, a 5-10 minute walk to Passeig de Gràcia and very near the Girona subway stop on the yellow line. This area is exceptionally safe and quiet, even if there are a number of restaurants and bars in the basement or ground floor of the buildings near the hotel. It is near Mercat de la Concepció and a number of flower markets, which make an evening walk near the hotel just a pleasant as one down Passeig de Gràcia.

Directions: 4 blocks west of Passeig de Gràcia

Our room (804) was larger than many we have experienced in Europe. Our friends were in 703 and it was smaller, but still plenty large enough.

Front Desk Staff was excellent. They spoke English, were helpful and friendly.

Internet access was good, but closed AROUND 10:30pm most nights, sometimes earlier.

Location was the biggest weakness. If you can get Hotel Granvia for the same price -or even a little more - you will be more in the center of things. However, taxis are easy to use and cheap in Barcelona, so the location wasn't a huge factor to us.

Overall, this was a VERY GOOD hotel, and I'd give it four stars on a European rating system.

You are very close 1 1/2 blocks from the Girona Metro entrance, but if you are a group of four, taxis are cheaper and easier than the Metro most of the time. The hotel is close to a couple of convenience stores and a grocery store. You are four blocks from Passeig de Gracia which is the main drag and 8 blocks or so from La Rambla. If you can hoof it, the location isn't bad.

Directions: 1 1/2 blocks from Metro Girona. Four blocks from Passeig de Gracia and Casa Battlo.

We stayed in the three star Europark for our last night in Barcelona. Although everything was nice, and might even have pushed its way up into the four star categories, I really didn't think it gave bang for its buck.

Unique Quality: For $140 a night I expect to have a few amenities like complimentary wine or breakfast or something, but there was none of that. It did have a high quality and free internet connnection in the bar. The bar itself was a little expensive but came with some drunk Irish women to take your mind off the steep price. The shower was extremely small.

Directions: On Arago
