“A joy for an architect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2006

My wife and I have just returned from a week’s stay in Casa Camper Hotel, Barcelona. We are owners of Hix Island House in Vieques, Puerto Rico which has a #1 Trip Advisor designation for hotels in Puerto Rico. We chose Camper because it was #1 on Trip Advisor in Barcelona. Camper’s unique plan of a separate living area across the corridor from the sleeping area ( the quiet side) is excellent and fun.

The cheerful desk service cannot be topped. Reservations, travel, whatever-they do it for you. My wife discovered that she had over- paid 20 euros for a shirt, Guillermo, one of the Camper Team at the desk, went on her behalf and retrieved the money from the local merchant. Now that is service.

The made to order breakfast and our ability to snack on salads, sandwiches etc. ( included in the rate) is contemporary and convenient in a city. But as an architect, it was refreshing for me to be living in a well thought out design ---and that lovely rain shower topped off a perfect day.

We've just returned from a couple of wonderful days in Barcelona.
The first night we stayed in Casa Camper, it is like a four star Hostel for over forties. The staff were excellent. The accomodation comprised of a big spacious comfortable, well equiped bedroom with a lovely sitting room with a view over the roofs of Barcelona. The dining area had free food and drinks available all day. The hotel is located three minutes walk from La Rambla. Treat yourself its worth it.

I can't praise the Casa Camper Hotel enough. My Fiance and I were on a 1 month trip from Madrid to Holland and we stayed in Casa Camper along the way. Of the 7 places we stayed, this was my favorite and Barcelona was my favorite city!

The hotel is located right off of the head of Las Ramblas. Everything is close by yet since it does not face Las Ramblas directly, it was quiet and peaceful. The coast is only a 15 minute walk down the Ramblas and only 5 minutes on bike (which are available at the hotel).

The rooms were especially unique. Each room is split by the main hallway common to all the rooms. I won't spoil all the surprises but I will say that the mastermind behind Camper has introduced a refreshing twist on the traditional hotel suite.

The rooms inside are very clean and comfortable. There is no carpet and lots of tile which is easily cleaned. The shower and bathroom overlook a beautiful private terrace filled with shelves and shelves of one variety of a local plant. The overall feel of the room and adjacent lounge is very modern and hip (but not overly so).

The staff were the most friendly in Europe who did everything we asked from Checking train schedules to giving us maps and directions. There is an open/complimentary bar and cafe in the lobby for snacks, water, and softdrinks, midnight cravings, etc. Breakfast is included in the room rate and consists of the typical fare plus a cook who can make omelets and the like.

If you are going to Barcelona and you can afford this hotel, I implore you to stay here. You will not regret it, despite what some other naysayers have claimed in these reviews. Some people are never satisfied.

  • Liked — Friendly staff, great location, cool and hip design
  • Disliked — I loved everythings.

Well ... this new Casa Camper hotel has a lot going for it! Great location. Clean, colorful design. And a smart, functional concept. The bathrooms are awesome ... with a huge window that allows you a bright look into their simple courtyard with a rolling outdoor shutter that will close out the light for an afternoon nap. zzzzzzz

Another unique aspect is a small sitting room across the hall .. allowing you to use it as an office, place to read or as a brief getaway from the bedroom and your significant other. Enjoy the romantic street below and rooftops of Barcelona on the upper floors. The simple, but elegant breakfasts and snacks available most all the day and night were a welcome refreshment. During the day the kids can be a bit noisy from a school across the street ... but let's face it ... it was the joyous sound of "fun."

But ... the very best thing about Casa Camper was the staff ... the standouts were from Spain, Brasil and France ... Christina Noguiera, Ferdinanda, Laurent, and Joel ... and a wonderful lady with the coolest white glasses ... these folks bent over backwards to make sure you were happy, knew where you were going and never stopped smiling. What a welcome relief from the stodgy, bored front desk people of the world ... Casa Camper staff rocks ...! Bravo.

  • Liked — Staff and the design
  • Disliked — The fact that I had to leave.
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask them anything ... they will help you.

We chose to celebrate our marriage in Barcelona because we wanted something special for us and our family. Barcelona lived up to our expectations - but it would not have been extraordinary had it not been for the excellent Casa Camper Team.

Never have I experienced such a service minded and helpful team - for every little detail. Everything we didn't think of before the last minute - they had already fixed it... The roof top terrace was perfect for an all-night-dinner (by special reservation only) - the team set up a bar for us, played music and made everything just perfect.

I can totally recommend Casa Camper for those seeking an extra-ordinary experience. They don't have an open restaurant, but cook upon orders. It seems like this make them more motived for the meels they make - our compliments to the chef !! (Their set menu was good value).

Pricing is a bit on the high side, but if you appreciate such an extraordinary stay it is still very good value!

Thanks a lot to Natalie and her team!
We will come back next may to celebrate our anniversary!

What can I say. My wife and I loved every minute of our stay at Casa Camper. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is central being only 5 minutes from Placa de Catalunya where the Aerobus stops and only a couple of minutes from La Rambla.

We stayed in a suite and even though it was €20 more a night it was well worth it.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We are seasoned travlers who have been around the world several times. We booked four rooms for a family of 11 traveling to Barcelona and staying for one night prior to boarding a cruise ship. We had spent several hours with AMX travel including calling the hotel in order to make sure that there were no problems. We had booked four suites. Our AMX travel counselor had called ahead and found out that each suite would accomodate up to three persons and we were quoted a price of 235.00 euro's per room for up to three people per room. Since there were 11 of us this would be great ( there were seven adults and four children 14 and under). Anyway, once we got there everything was fine and we checked in early as requested. However, when we left to go out sight seeing several hours later they informed us that we would have to pay 90. Euro's extra each for two of the children. We spent over two hours trying to reason with these people, to no avail.

The rooms were small but nice. However,being ripped off for an additional 180. Euro's was not pleasant. So... be careful with this hotel.
