I've just come back from a stay at the Park Hotel and found it fantastic.
It was great value for money and the location was excellent: opposite the train station, meaning quick access to the airport (the train journey involves one change at Passeig de Gracias), and close to a very beautiful park and great zoo, as well as Las Ramblas. The beach also isn't very far and is within walking distance; as is the cable-car.
The staff were very helpful and spoke good English. They provided us with a map and the check-in/check-out process was very swift.
Only two small disadvantages with the rooms: it can be a bit noisy when people are walking around on the corridors as the walls are thin (we were next to the lifts) and the rooms are fairly small.More
