We checked into this hotel for one night at the beginning of April. There seemed to be no other options in town that night, but I was slightly wary of this hotel, as previous reviews I had read had been somewhat unfavourable. I was nonetheless happy when they said that they had a room available and they gave us the... More

Besalu is a lovely out-of-the-way place, very attractive with beautiful mediaeval buildings, and this hotel is right on the central square. Rather than scrabble around finding fault with the bathroom fittings as some travellers seem to do, we enjoyed our comfortable stay here and would definitely recommend the hotel.

The outside of this hotel is attractive, and it's right on the square in lovely Besalu, but I'd suggest finding someplace else to stay if you can (we couldn't -- everything was booked). Our room was very spacious, with high ceilings. The bathroom had a tub and one of those hand showers, so a little inconvenient, but not such a... More

Let's start from the premise that this is a FOUR STAR hotel under Spain's rating system. Yet -- foul odor in reception at check in, dingy room, mold in bathtub (see photos), scratchy sandpaper towels, paper thin sheets and no mattress cover so blue mattress was clearly visible under the sheet, bottom sheet too small to cover top or sides...

We showed up in Besalu without hotel reservations and was referred to this hotel by a local resident we stopped on the street. The front desk could not have been more patient with our request to look at about 10 different rooms before we decided to stay there for 2 nights and chose the 2 rooms we liked the best... More

We stayed with a group of 20 people for 4 days and we where surprised of the very good service and hospitality by the staff. The breakfast was beoynd our expectations and the nice girl in the reception even went out to buy us fresh fruits. The rooms are excellent - well cleaned and good condition. Keep in mind this...

As other reviewers have commented great location in a lovely old town. Rooms look like down market Travel Lodge. No English spoken - you can get by a little in French.We had a surprisingly good meal in the evening. Breakfast average. WIFI?! Could be so much better.

Wow, the other reviewers are not too generous to this hotel. Yes, this is not Sofitel, the service sucks, wifi doesn't work, rooms could be better designed and more comfortable, sleep quality is not good, but you on the main plaza of the wonderful old town of Besalu, one of the most historic and atmospheric little town of Catalonia. So... More

The hotel is well located but the staff is unfriendly and not helpful. The rooms look nice, but the shower doesn't. We stayed there just because we arrived late into town and had no other choice. The wifi hardly worked even in the lobby. Avoid.

Nice hotel in good location but we were checked in by someone who spoke no English (why allow bookings through UK websites if you can't have at lease some basic help for guests). She tried to explain something to us but had to 'phone a friend' who told us an important message about the breakfast (which we did not order)... More
