We had a wonderful one-night stay at Le Petit Hotel de Riu de Cerdanya as part of a five-day self-guided hiking tour through the region (organized by InnTravel, which proved to be an excellent tour company). The hosts/chefs, Joan and Emma, were truly wonderful and made sure everything about our stay was pleasant. Their English is limited, but they are very patient and a little bit of Spanish or French along with English will easily do the trick.

This is a tiny family run hotel, very convenienly situated on C-16 when crossing the Pyrenees or going to Andorra. We were the only guests for the night and were warmly greeted by the owner. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Nice view from the window. On the other hand, it needs some minor maintanance and attention (a slowly but anoyingly leaking toillett). There is a nice modern elevator! Which saved us the need to schlep the suitcases up the stairs. Food was not something to write home about, but on the other hand it is hard to blame the owner for the selection when the hotel is mostly empty at low season. If you are on C-16 and looking for a place to stop for the night and rest, I certainly consider the Petit Hotel de Riu.

We have looked for a small, cozy room as a basis for our 3-days trip in the Pyrenees mountains. We found much more than this. A family of two very dedicated, nice people, opened their hearts to us, gave us very professional information about the nearby attractions, sat with us to tell about their life, including about the wealth of artistic artifacts from all possible countries, decorating the entire hotel, They listened to us about our experience and interest in life, and we soon found many common fields of interest. Dinners were very tasty and inexpensive, breakfasts were a bit dull, but they were improved upon our request. The rooms are not big but well equipped, including free wi-fi. The small village surrounding the hotel is a nature's beauty by itself, a sheer pleasure to wander around. The place is comfortably located near the Cadi tunnel, thereby making it an ideal place for daily trips in the entire east Pyrenees region. Highly recommended!

We stayed in this hotel for a long weekend - 2 adults, 2 children and 1 dog. The rooms are clean, the village is quiet, (well-behaved) dogs are very welcome, breakfast is good. If what you want is the full amenities of a big chain hotel, then don't go to this hotel. If however you're looking for charm and a good base from which to visit the region, then I would recommend this hotel. A recommendation: if you're a light sleeper, then take ear plugs - like 95% of the hotels in this part of Spain, the walls are paper thin. Then again, after a day of full-blast skiing, your head hits the pillow and you're out for the night :)

We stayed here on night one of an 8 day walking holiday around the Cerdanya region. A very warm welcome from the owner and his wife, beers on the terrace before an excellent Catalan meal. The hotel was very quiet, in fact we were the only two there! Comfortable room, peaceful location and a good breakfast (with excellent picnic) before the long walk to Meranges. We don't speak Catalan or Spanish but managed in French, the owner was keen to practice his English and we managed a very interesting conversation about the Catalan history, its culture and customs whilst drinking wonderful regional red wine late into the evening. An excellent start to the holiday.
