““A nice hotel up on a hill””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

A nice hotel up on a hill. be wary of the not too steep hill if you are on foot - after a day sightseeing in BCN it was a little tough on the feet to climb. the hotel is in need of a little touch up here and there imho but this should not detract from the stay. I had a nice room with a side on view of the sea and mountain behind. the hotel is in a Y shape with the 2 top parts of the Y the newly updated/built part of the hotel, the straight end part of the Y is the older part of the hotel. nice common area's with interesting bits on the walls. good choice for breakfast and stunning view of the beach from the window. 15 min walk to station Platja Castellfedells, 25/30 mins train ride into BCN city, get a T10 card if you're likely to travel a few times in, makes much more economical sense. a few choice restaurants around, Fosbury Cafe, Las Botas, the restaurant at the hotel, Chalo de Tapas

An excellent location and choice for a nice romantic break with my partner.

The hotel is split in 2... the old building which is was a mansion and the new building which was the modern side. We had a great room in the new building which had breath taking views of the mountains.

The rooms were ultra modern with all amenities provided. Breakfast was included in the rate also which was great. There was 3 swimming pools, squash courts and gym... didnt get to use any of these as was on a romantic break. Oh there's free wifi in all rooms and around the resort which was great as most laces tend to charge for wifi usage.

Hotel staff were wonderful and very helpful. I cant wait to go back for a long break.

Friendly service and great views. The rooms are comfortable and train station is very close. Breakfast is pretty standard though the dinner selection is very good. Also the hotel's bar is fully stocked with various spirits. Overall would stay here again.

Excellent four star service where I enjoyed a business conference. Do not miss the dining with a quite beautiful view of the coast and excellent food in a very comfortable and uplifting surrounding. Great facilities both for conferences and holidays with exquisite service.

Dear Customer,

Thank you very much for your feedback. We like that you had gone totally satisfied with our hotel.

The truth that we are a hotel where you can balance stays as entertainment company and we currently have many companies that conduct their meetings at the hotel and then take the opportunity to stay longer so we can enjoy the hotel and the area outside the workplace .

Hopefully see you again soon.

Regards

Developed from a past mansion, the hotel is situated on a hill with stunning view over the Mediterranean from the garden and dining areas. The bathroom presented a generous set of toiletries that in addition to the standard selection of lotion, shampoo etc. also included items like tooth brush, razor, comb, shoe shine and sewing kit. The fitness area contains a well equipped gym, two squash courts, two saunas and huge indoor / outdoor swimming pool. In the corridor there were wi-fi routers mounted outside every 4th room door and internet connection was consistently reliable and fast. The only negative comments I can find is that the shades outside the window left the daylight out (an attempt to swing then open ended in a big bang as the wind swung them back during the night), and a complementary water bottle and in-room tea/coffee making facilities would have been welcome.
