“Old style hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

My wife and I decided to stay an extra day in Cadaques and booked this family hotel. The hotel was clean, bed was fine, parking and a proper bathroom. The hotel itself was outdated and the floors very noise because of the (outdated) floor-covering used. If one moves a chair you easy hear it with the neighbors. The WIFI was the worst ever during this vacation it went off and on and had many lP adress server issues. The breakfast was nice and good value for money. Most family Staff was kind spoke only Spanish except one lady.

Hotel is very basic, but relaevly big rooms, good WiFi, free parking and friendly staff carered to all our needs. At this city it seemed to be the best value for money. We only needed a place to stay for one night and needed also a parkingspace. It was the best possible choice. The only downside was we requested double room which ended up being two twin beds pushed together...

We stayed in this hotel for one night only as the next day we started our way to Zaragoza-Madrid. Cadaques is a small town, so it takes about ten minutes to walk from the hotel to the beaches, though it is located "in the suburbs". The room was nice. Still, instead of a double bed we saw two separate beds just joined to each other, which is not very comfortable for a young couple. The shower is really hand-operated, as you may have read in a previous feedback, but for me it wasn't that awful. The room was clean, the walls aren't dirty at all and there was no problems with noise from the streets. The breakfast was nice (bread, butter, jam, croissants, jamon, sausage, cheese, yogurt, cornflakes, dried plums, milk, cake, tea, coffee). Parking was OK, they even let you keep it for a while after you check out, which was very helpful as we wanted to sunbathe a bit before leaving. The thing that irritated me was that only one person at the reception desk could speak English. The other staff didn't even say simple English words. There was an old woman who was a kind of receptionist, but she didn't even make any attempt to exchange information with us. We asked her some questions about the conditions of checking out and wanted to pay for the breakfast and she spoke to us in Catalan. We told her we didn't understand and she answered: "But I don't speak English, I speak Catalan and Spanish" (in Catalan, of course; after a week of traveling in Spain you start to recognize some words). Her facial expression tried to explain that it is not her problem if we understand or not. My native language is Russian, so I wanted to answer her in Russian and see her reaction. But I was too polite. So, if you decide to visit Cadaques and especially this hotel, try to learn at least some basic Catalan words and expressions.

The air conditioning worked perfectly, and the car park went really well. A very good choice to visit the lovely village of Cadaques. You should go there! The only thing was that breakfast was not included.

Some refurbished rooms at this hotel are nice, especially ones with balconies, ours was basic, dark and prison-like as the metal shutters did not open. The bathroom had a hand-held shower. The hotel faces a busy main road, there are much nicer quieter places to stay further into Cadaques, such as Ubaldo. We booked through an agency; the hotel took 2 deposits on our first night (NOT procedure) and only refunded one at checkout, charged double tourist tax for one of us. We hadn't realised this until checking our visa statement at home. It took the agency a few days to obtain a refund, and it was less than it should have been.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room with a balcony

Stayed at the hotel for three nights. Very conviently located behind the bus station, supermarket and down/old town. Hotel was clean and well kept. As previous people have noted it was at times loud due to the tile floors, but quiet during the night. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.
