Usually the Riu hoteles are known as large resorts in coastal regions all over the world. But, Mr. Riu (the owner of the Riu hotel chain) wanted to have a special hotel in his home town Olot and he really put it into practice when he built this little gem. All rooms of the arc shaped building have a view... More

We stayed in the hotel only for one night with our 2 and 4 y.o. kids. The rooms were clean with nice views and the breakfast had a decent variety. The staff was pleasant and I would have rated the experience as very good. The part that makes me rate it as excellent happened after we left the hotel: we... More

Stayed here before and again in November. Quiet setting in quiet village, small bar and breakfast only - no restaurent. Common areas clean and tidy, bedrooms clean but dated to the point of being tired. Nice attentive staff.

We stayed at Hotel Riu for one night because it was the only accomodation we could find for four people at 24hrs notice. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the view is also very pleasant. The two downsides to the hotel are a) The seriously outdated styling; we thought this was a problem for the price, and b) the... More

Very friendly staff & clean rooms with beautiful views. Only thing we could fault it on was that juice's at breakfast were not on par with everything else.

Lovely hotel, reasonably priced, comfortable and spacious room with large porch, good breakfast. Preferable to come with car as it's a bit away from the center of town. Warm welcome, accomodating staff. Very clean.

This hotel was everything we expected, it was exactly as described online if not nicer. We arrived early but were still able to check in, we were even showered with apologies for our room not being ready and treated to a drink on the lovely patio while we waited. The room was great, clean and bright with a nice patio... More

I stayed in the Riu Olot in January just after new year with my partner. It was a nice clean hotel and we got a good deal including breakfast. To stay here I would say that you really need your own transport as although it is fairly near to the town it wasn't really in walking distance to any restaurants.... More
