I have recently returned from a trip with a couple of friends to Pas De La Casa and stayed at the Catalunya....

First of all the good:
The location is fantastic literally 100m and your at the base of the lifts....Perfect
The staff were all very polite and attentive to all queries
The food was what you expect in a HB ski hotel, no means gourmet but a good scram after a day on the slopes
The hotel was always clean even after people bring snow in on their equipment, quickly mopped

Now the bad:
The hotel rooms were tiny, barely enough room for two adults let alone your clothes with a single wardrobe. The temperature in our hotel was also highly volatile switching from comfortable to sauna throughout the night.

And finally the ugly
THE NOISE..... I have visited Pas several times and expected a lively holiday however I have never heard anything like this, keeping us awake and I am a notoriously heavy sleeper... Attached to the hotel is a pleasant little bar which is a "continental" bar (Spanish, Portuguese and French patrons), the bar closes in the wee hours of the morning and on closing the patron take it upon themselves to wake the entire street with chanting...EVERY NIGHT.... Even a night on the sauce myself didn't allow me to sleep through the noise.
Our group even mentioned it to our rep in passing and they were surprised at the noise when they were walking passed one evening

Basically it looks adequate in the photos however sleeping in a noisy box with your friend breathing on the back of you neck whilst you sleep was not the best aspect of the holiday....

The skiing/boarding was amazing which made up for it!!!

I didn't choose my self this hotel, as I stayed there as a contest prize. I read awful reviews here and I was scared. But the hotel is not such a bad place at all! The rooms are not big but they are clean, warm and fairly equipped, bathroom as well. The food is not gourmet but is quite ok to a ski week. The staff is very nice and they have always be kind to us. The only two things I have to point is about noise from the bar if you stay on the 1st or 2nd floor and the absence of wifi access. This hotel was renewed some months ago, so the previous reviews are no longer valid. The hotel is really near Solana track.

My boyfriend and I have just arrived back from the Catalunya, this holiday was booked last minute and had little time to read reviews. I now wish i had.

The reviews above are very accurate, the rooms are basic yet very clean, with it being mopped and fresh towels given every day. The rooms are very, very hot and uncomfortable.

The food i was very suprised with, being a bit fussy a bout food i was shocked to find that it was tasty and enjoyable, we ate at the restaurant every night. The staff were friendly and helpful. The dinners had loads of options but breakfast was a bit basic and boring, but deffinately was edable and filled a hole.

The noise was another matter, we stayed in the hotel when it was full with large groups. There was alot of couples and the noise from the people staying at the hotel was not that bad, it was the dodgy plumbing that kept us awake making the windows rattle.

Other than that the hotel was ok but could not of stayed there another night so glad to get home to some comfort.

Greg Jones (March 2007)
Was a bit worried about the catalunya after reading some of these reviews, but found it to be ok. The noise wasnt such a problem for us, but that may have been because we were on the 4th floor. The only night we had trouble sleeping was the last night, and that was because of the locals passionate support for barcelona (they were playing real madrid that night). The room was basic but clean, and you can expect the cleaners to be kicking you out the room at 10am each day (no bad thing - you are there for skiing after all!). The hotel bar is in the basement and is for hotel clients only (the locals fill the ground floor bar - which has a good atmosphere and does a cracking tunamayo baguette!). The barman in the hotel bar (Juan) deserves commendation for providing such a great relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere. He's always happy to have a chat at the bar and if you treat him well, he will treat you even better. Invite him for a game of darts and discuss sevilla football club and you have a friend for life!!! Id actually go as far to say that if it wasnt for Juans bar then the holiday wouldnt have been as enjoyable. If i ever go back to pas de la casa, ill certainly stay at the catalunya just to renew acquaintances. The atmosphere in the bar was always great too, as everyone caught up on a days skiing. I certainly made more holiday friends in the catalunya than on any other holiday ive been on. The hotel restaurant opens at 7.30, and for me was the only drawback to the hotel. Theres stacks of food served on a buffet basis, and whilst theres nothing wrong with it, it just got a bit repetetive after 3 days. Plus the restaurant was boiling and you're always eating your dinner next to a queue of at least 15 people waiting to get to the buffet. Last but not least, the hotel is situated right next to the lowest ski lift, and will take you about 30secs walk (perfect when you're carrying ski's). Just make sure you turn right out the hotel door to get there (if you turn left towards the main high street then you have an arduous uphill struggle for about 200m - trust me, we did it the first 2 days!). So thats it, a basic hotel with a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Cheers Juan, and keep karate chopping those bottel tops!!!!

Just returned from the Catalunya on 25 Feb 2007. Stayed for a week with wife and two kids, aged 16 & 9. We had read some reviews on this and other sites, and to be honest we were not particularly looking forward to going. My theory was that since we were going at half term, there would be less teen rowdies, and more families in resort, and as such less noise. This turned out to be the case, and the Catalunya was mainly filled with families. (Apart from a couple of groups; some of whom really really didnt give a monkeys about anybody elses right to a decent nights sleep...)

We ended up in two rooms on the fourth floor, which were clean and reasonably spacious. Our only real gripe about the room was the lack of a kettle....why oh why dont they provide one?

Noise, as mentioned everywhere, is a problem. We could hear everything the little darlings in the room next door said, every toilet flush, every bed creak. Not good. Also, the open stairwells allow noise to travel up from the bar and cafe downstairs, and anybody coming in late or drunk can be heard by everybody else. The locals love the cafe, and stay till three in the morning before spilling onto the street. The bar is similarly busy till the small hours.

Good points though: food is hot and plentiful, and if you time it right you can eat twice!...the restaurant is open for hours!
(Breakfast choice could be a bit better, it alternates from : Fried eggs/sausage/beans to scrambled egg/bacon/beans, but there are toast/croissant options).

The staff are friendly and helpful, especiallly Juan in the Bar.
Location is brilliant for the slopes and Ski School...fifty yards to walk to the lifts. Free ski lockers outside your room Plenty Hot water for showers/baths, and rooms properly cleaned every day.
My advice...if youre going at school holidays, its a cheap as chips option, but make sure you put some earplugs in, and ask for a top floor room. Outside of school holidays, i would recommend going somewhere else...cause the Catalunya'll be full of party all nighters, and you'll be better off paying a bit extra for a decent sleep.

If you are one of those party animals however....go for it...theres a really good atmosphere, and you cant beat the location! Just remember to SHUT UP when you come back to the Hotel after a night on the razzle!!

Enjoy....we did
