“Great apartment, lovely stay in Ordino”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

My family wanted to spend a few Summer days in Andorra so I looked on-line for an apartment or hotel that could cater for a family of 5 (children 15, 13 and 8), was rural but not completely isolated. Casa Vella came up in the search results and we booked for three nights not really certain of what we were going to get. However, we were very pleased. Ordino is a village about 30 minutes drive from La Vella, the capital of Andorra. First, it is obvious that there is a lot of money in Andorra as the village had something like four banks, a swimming pool and sports complex, a museum and several restaurants/cafes. Even the public waste bins were emptied every night and the streets are beautifully clean and maintained. The debt crisis seems to have left Andorra alone! Anyway, the Casa Vella apartments are two minutes walk from the main village facilities, right opposite a small, children's play area. The manager/director of the apartments Luis is a star. So helpful and friendly and never seemed to mind our constant list of questions (he even gave us tourist information on Barcelona!). His wife is also the cleaner and does a fine job.Our apartment was two bedroomed with a large sitting room/kitchen area which had a sofa bed in. The mattress on my bed was bit too soft (old), but I slept okay. The bathroom was enormous and had a spa bath. The kitchen facilities were a bit limited (microwave plus two hobs for heating and a few saucepans - but sufficient). TV had plenty of French and Catalan channels plus BBC World. Wi-fi was excellent, fast and free - suitable for an internet dependent family!. No air-con but great big windows allowing cool air through. Lift to room. Parking on the street or near by (all safe). Would return. We did not realise breakfast was included until our last day, which was a pity as it was excellent. Luis' friend owns the hotel opposite which has a pool Case Vella geusts can use if you fancy a swim.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2010

Hard to review objectively if hotel allows your pet to stay with you. Endless gratitude for that.
Nice hotel, middle standard, provides small kitchen, fully equipped bathroom, comfortable rooms. Cozy and warm winter sports hotel. Little used up - furniture and bathroom - still holds up. Do not recommend rooms on first floor - noisy. Would definitely visit again if traveling with pet.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2008

Excellent clean accommodation. Friendly reception staff who were especially very helpful and understanding when we had car difficulties and needed a late check-out. Beautiful location in Ordino. We loved the mountain views, and our young children loved the playground directly across from the hotel. Would definitely stay here again.
