first and most important: extremly friendly and attentive service, at the front desk and in the restaurant! it's a very nice and very quiet hotel with beautiful panoramic view into the valley. free wifi, not real fast though. the (cheaper) rooms at the upper floor are a bit cramped, but still OK. the architect was not really up to his...

Loved the view from our balcony of the Pyrennes and town below. Would come back here just for that! The restaurant is excellent too. However, the rooms and sitting rooms are a bit dated as other writers have indicated.

My latest visit to this establishment was on a special occasion, a club anniversary and we had really been looking forward to it as it had been promised to be special. It is of course not always easy to know which parts of an "event" are managed by the promoters and which parts by the venue, in this case the... More

Our room was beautiful and had a balcony overlooking the Pyrenees. The room was very comfortable and clean, towels and toiletries replenished appropriately. I wish they had an electric outlet in the bathroom, but that is frequently an issue in Europe. We had just stayed at a much more modest Best Western that was fully equipped with outlets for charging... More

The Hotel Castell de Ciutat is one of the select group of fine Relais de Chateaux hotels and fully deserves its status. It is located high on a hill looking out over the city of La Seu d’Urgell and the Pyrenean Mountains and the border with Andorra. The guest rooms have attractive balconies so that guests are able to relax... More

Pleasant staff but the facility is tired in it appointments and spaces. One review indicated it was "old school", which seems accurate. The restaurant is of modest quality and service and the nearby highway delivers high noise levels from the traffic.

My husband and I spent three months in Europe celebrating his birthday this spring and summer. El Castell stands out as one of our outstanding memories - incredible, personable staff, lovely hotel, excellent restaurant and to die for scenery with great hiking. We will return and, if you stay here, you will, also.
