The hotel is located just behind the main street that crosses the centre of Calella, towards the mountains (making it a quite place to stay than directly in the vibrant centre, where you'll have a lot of noise of youngsters partying at night). Although the hotel is rated three-stars, our first impression was that of a two-star hotel: in general,... More

Despite it is three stars hotel, it is much better than four stars neighbour ones, indeed. Because it is new, clean, small and its restaurant is perfect. It is not so far from a sea - it wil take 5 min to reach a beach. Friendly personell, especially Eva at the reseption. Highly recommended.

Nice and clean hotel, spacious rooms, everything very clean, comfortable beds, all hotel staff very friendly. I would say the meals were good (maybe too good, not recommended to the people wanting loose weight...lol), not a huge variety, but all fresh and well cooked. Problems with free parking in Calella, it is a better option for renting the parking place... More

Good food, fresh vegetables and fruits, awesome tomatoes, salmon (1st day). Nice rooms, we got one on roof top with terrace. Must see Barcelona, 'Tossa de mar', visit local vineyard - awesome sangria blanco.

Is is 10 min from the beautiful beach of Calella. But I don't recommend for families, because the hotel is full of group of young people... More

The hotel is situated towards the rear of the town about a 10 minute stroll down to the Old Town and the same to the beach. A good location despite all the 'club 18-30' type groups all around = noise into the small hours! Not great surroundings but the hotel itself is difficult to fault, it is very clean and... More

Spent five nights here in July 2013. Initial impressions were good - the hotel looked clean, tidy and well maintained on the outside. Check in was quick and efficient. Room quite small with 2 single beds and a wall mounted TV - single English language channel being BBC World News. Bathroom with shower over bath again quite small - door... More

Maybe an unlucky day, but er had to reactivate the room keycards twice during a 15 hour stay, plus they gave the room to someone else while we were still in bed... Pay attention to early breakfast and checkout.
