We decided to stop at the Novotel Sant Joan Despi because it suited our needs - close enough for the city and near enough to visit friends in nearby Igualada. The public transport is fantastic and took approximately 40 mins to get into the city via tram and metro. We did hire a car, however it is pointless because it... More

We were allocated in this hotel for 2 nights on April 2015 by Ryanair as they cancelled our flight due to a strike, so we didn’t choose it nor pay for it but we were satisfied with this accommodation. Upon check-in they gave us room n. 326: the room was large and clean, there was a normal double bed (though... More

Thank you very much for sharing your experience in our hotel. We are glad you had a good stay with us. It is true that we are at the entrance of Barcelona, so you have to take the public transport until the center, that’s why our rates are competitive. Anyway, if you prefer to be in the center for your... More

Was there during a conference, booked this hotel last minute as all the other hotels are sold out. The furniture reminds of any Ibis hotel. Despite the location that is off the town it is pretty OK, despite being just beside one of the major highway the sound isolation from my room is very good. So do not expect anything... More
