Our Host Marta made our visit memorable. She was so helpful in planning our day trips and what to do in Besalu. We stayed 5 nights and were happy we did. Her breakfasts were memorable and so complete and thoughtful. She only has 12 rooms so she is often full. She runs the hotel totally by herself with just one... More

We stayed here for just one night. The caretaker lady is very helpful and friendly. Although it was written that we need to check-in before 8 pm, she called us to inform and confirm. We had some issues while reaching this place by car using GPS. There is no parking at the hotel, but you can ask her to help... More

We had a strange experience on 1st April; April Fools’ Day at this hotel. When we arrived in Besalu, we went to check out availability of rooms at the 3 Arcs, (as we had read good reports of this b&b) but all the doors were locked – even though there was a light on over the Reception desk and there...

Hotel is in a good central location, the staff were friendly, the room was a bit plain but entirely adequate, the breakfast was good. Walking distance to the famous bridge and the river and the medieval town.

Had a few days here recently. The hotel was delightful and the manager was a lovely girl who went out of her way to make us comfortable. We had a nice room with a small balcony, and enjoyed a great breakfast every morning. Besalu was a lovely town and the hotel was in an ideal location right in the centre... More

The hotel is in the old town and not far from Main Square, shop, restaurant. The owner (very lovely young lady) is friendly & helpful. The room is clean and good bathroom. We had a very pleasant stay and would recommend to our friends & family to stay here again.

Great place, friendly atmosphere and nice hospitality in a superb location. Highly recommended and good value for money. We spent there a weekend and we also found it great to visit the surrounding villages and the bañolas lake.

We really liked Besalu - a charming medieval town with a great atmosphere, especially at night. The hotel was well located, just off the main square. In terms of other positives, the room was clean; receptionist friendly; and the breakfast in the bakery at the front of the hotel was pleasant. However, the bedroom we had was small, impersonal and... More

Right in the middle of the old town with short walking distance to the old bridge and the town square. Nice room with rather small but adequate bath room and a small balcony overlooking a street without disturbing noice. Comfortable bed, good wifi and well working air condition (without any strange smell). Nice breakfast that we had on the terrace.... More

The best feature of this hotel is the location, right in the heart of the old city in Besalu. The room was small but cleaned daily and was overall ok. If you want to ask reception any questions make sure you do it first thing in the morning as the front desk is not always manned. Also try and get... More
