I stayed here before many years ago and remembered how great it was back then so returned again with my wife. The entire hotel is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. I have spent twice the amount staying in hotels in neaby Pineda de mar that are not as nice as El Pekinaire. The rooms are spacious with all the facilities... More

Andres and Esther, the hotel owners, are very hospitable. First of all, the family hotel looks very modern. The suite has all the necessities: comfortable furniture, flat screen TV, free Internet and a safe. The hotel is near the beach, restaurants and stores but unlike the big hotels, in a quiet place by the city center. We followed Andre's recommendations... More

Looking at the other hotel prices in August, Pensio El Pekinaire was offering a really good price. The owner of the hotel is really nice and gives really good advices about where to go and what to see around. The room was nice with a little terasse.

Location is OK, Some 300 m from the beach and about 15 min. walking from train station. Do not use the taxi, like we did!!!!...it will cost You more than train ticket from bcn.... More
