We stayed here for our Wedding anniversary trip to Barcelona. We didn't speak any Spanish, but the staff were super with us. They helped us learn enough to order coffee and drinks. The room was so lovely, and the views of the hills were great! Free Parking meant that we didn't need to worry about the hire car. The location... More

We stayed here for one night on the 1st of January primarily because of the facilities and the proximity to the airport. The hotel is a little tired in places and the indoor pool is in desperate need of a deep clean, but this is the only grumble I have about the place. The beds are really comfortable and the... More

Just stayed here for one night to speak at a conference on site. The hotel is a bit tired, but very comfortable and great views. Would agree with some other reviewers on the restaurant - food very good. Not the place I'd come to if a paying guest out of choice. My favourite in the Castellfedels / Gava is the... More

Beautiful hotel in the hills of Castelldefels close to Barcelona. Good rooms and excellent restaurant. However, there is a very noisy construction next to the hotel, so it is impossible to stay at the hotel during daytime. We told the management that this was a problem, but they said that they were not responsible, that it was another construction. We... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your comments. Just tell that to the attached hotel, works are not the hotel itself, but are of a private owner and in no event Soteras, has nothing to do with these works Regards Gran Hotel Rey Don Jaime (Grup Soteras) More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here in July. This hotel was beautiful. Idyllic views across Castelldefells, a lovely pool, good bar area and our room was beautiful too. Had everything you would want from a hotel. Rooms were cleaned daily and there was free wifi. Good value for money. My only problem was it wasn't near any amenities whatsoever. You... More

Very average hotel, it's authentic in a way, on a hill, taxi ride to the beach, pool is not very big, rooms need refurbishment, it's old and tired and needs a good clean, bathroom needs a good clean, if you need a basic hotel and you get a good deal go for it, it has nice veiws.

A decent hotel to be used as a base for Castelldefells and for trips into Barcelona. Rooms have tile floors and ample space, same for the bathroom. Shower was a bit poor, but on the whole a solid room. Food in the restaurant was overpriced with tiny portions, case of thinking it's something it's not I would say. Luckily the... More

The hotel is very dated and the rooms very average. We went for a business conference so it was adequate. I wouldn't consider this hotel for a holiday. Although it is 20 minutes walk down a steep hill to the beach and the facilities on the beach front are very good, the hotel lacked somewhat in every respect.
