I don't think I can praise Casa Camper enough. It was everyhting we could hope and more.
We stayed here in May 2012 with my friend and a 4-year-old kid. After booking the room I got a nice personalized email where the staff welcomed us, explained how their two-room system works and how we could get the most from our stay.
The location is simply perfect: right in the centre, on one of Rambla's quieter side streets. When we arrived we were given a super warm welcome and a little tour around the lobby and snack bar. Our bedroom was very comfy and it had enough space even with an extra bed. The living room on the other side of the hall with a view to the pedestrian street was also lovely. The hammock was a fun surprise especially for our kid.
Speaking of kids: I have never in my life stayed in a hotel where children would have been treated better. The staff took extra good care of us, played with our kid, showed him around and talked with him but also respected him as a person. This might sound weird, but in many hotels the staff is really nice to the kids but somehow treats them like they were pets or dolls or something. But not here, no. Our kid said he wants to stay here forever (and we adults felt the same). Oh, and another thing about treating people well. We felt that in Casa Camper you can be yourself no matter what you look like and to which minority (or majority) you belong to.
Everything in the hotel from the front door to the walk in showers is designed with good taste. The decor is not only stylish but also fun. Our room like the whole place was spotless. The bed was really comfy and the rain shower... whoa, I want that to my own house! On the first evening there was a bottle of sparkling wine waiting for us when we arrived.
Often hotels' 24-hour snack bars aren't that great, but the one in Casa Camper had really tasty salads, sandwiches, drinks, pastries, organic yoghourt and other goodies all of us three enjoyed very much. The breakfast was even better with freshly prepared eggs, bacon and pancakes cooked for order. One time we ate it on the cute roof terrace.
So the location is perfect and the hotel was great, but the best part was the incredible staff, one of the best I've ever met in my travels. From the first email to the check out we felt ourselves loved. Will go back as soon as possible and recommend to everybody I know.
