Hi, It is hard to find folks who know all these hotels.
I looked at both Jazz and Europark but have not stayed at either one.
I e-mailed Jazz to ask about the smoking/non smoking situation and never received an answer so although it is very popular on this site, I did not book there.
They all get good reviews on Trip Advisor. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Rev...Catalonia.html
I'd read carefully and not look at the star level or the popularity ratings.
I like the neighborhood where the Europark is located and ended up booking a less expensive hotel not far away from there.
The Jazz location is the most central.
Carnival Spirit & Miracle BEST]
Norwegian Star to Alaska--Alaska great NCL-NOT!
Legend of the Seas-RCCL-fun in Mexico
+Venice,Florence,Rome,Barcelona,Paris,Naples, Prague on land
Haven't stayed at either but did stay at Jazz this past June and loved it. I can't swear to it but think the hotel was nonsmoking. I am a former smoker and can spot smoke as soon as it wafts my way and never noticed it in Jazz.
Re: Jazz room size - rooms in Europe are pretty small and many only hold 2 (why families here have problems finding a room). Jazz was the largest of the 3 rooms we stayed in Barcelona, Venice and London (but since rooms are small to begin with) "larger" only becomes a relative term. Just saying, probably won't be able to walk into a room the size of what we are used to here in the US, all mine were much smaller.
