This Hotel is a great location, 5min walk from the town centre, and 10min from the beach. The Hotel itself is very clean and tidy, but be aware of add extras. The food is a buffet for breakfast and dinner, with a vast variety to choose from. The staff are great fun and friendly. The pool is nice, clean and very warm, but not of a great size, with plenty of loungers to use.
All in had a great stay, and a good time.

I stayed at this hotel in period 02.06.13 - 12.06.13.
I've booked privilege room. My room look like at photo on the hotel site. It was very comfortable and nice (5th floor).
I really liked the fact that the maid had seen and heard, but in the room was always well cleaned. Just delighted the staff: very responsive and friendly people. Almost all of the staff speak English, which made it easier solution to some problems.
I would love to be stopped and this hotel again :-)

Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noise and have beautiful view of the sea

I recently stayed at this hotel with my wife and 6 years old son.
We arrived late at night around midnight so we didn’t get supper but were greeted with two plates of fruits which was nice.We booked 2 beds standard room and found only two beds in the room although they knew its 3 of us coming ;-(
As it was too late in a day to sort out bed for son we slept all together and 3rd bed was sorted next day after breakfast.
I’ve asked for higher floor for better view, we get 3rd floor with sea view I knew it overlooking Calella trainstation but according to previous reviews it was quiet station and it was throughout our stay.
The hotel itself is generally good condition. All areas are immaculately clean. Rooms were cleaned daily. The rooms are fairly small but not impractical only downsides TV is tiny and fridge extra charge along with safe. Walls are thin, we had a problem with neighbours knocking on a wall and couple of times concierge knocking to ask reduce TV volume as next door old neighbours were going to bed early around 8:30 pm.
We had a sea view room and it had a lovely big balcony. Modern and wonderful area to sit by the pool with comfortable sunbeds. Open air Pool appears quite small but in our experience it was not heavily used and therefore this did not present a problem.
Great breakfast and dinner. The food is good with a lot of choice to suit every taste. Very helpful and nice staff. Mind you drinks at restaurant in evening extra charge too. Staff partly russian-speaking. Most other guests were Russians and Spanish.
Beach 5 mins walk - through the subway under the railways. Sunbeds with discount for the Volga guests. Beach club provided sun loungers for a reasonable €3 per day including towel and sunshade. The hotel is situated no more than 5 minutes walk from Calella beach where we spent most of time. You get three (shampain) cava at The Volga beach bar. Beach itself is very clean with a few nice beach bars along it. Evening entertainment in a hotel was ok but mostly for children, Friday night was fantastic specially evening meal and later entertainment of Spanish flamenco.
It is also only a couple of minutes walk from the hotel to the main shopping area of Calella which also has a number of nice cafe's & bars.
The train station is nearby making it easy to visit Barcelona.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Calella

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms catch the sun. Street facing will be quieter, but shaded most of the time

I recently stayed at this hotel in a group of 5 adults & 3 elder children.
It is a very clean hotel with very helpful, friendly staff.
The food is great with a lot of choice to suit every taste.
Our rooms were nicely decorated & cleaned daily.
The pool is very clean & we managed to get sunbeds at all times & even had the pool to ourselves on a number of occasions.

Booked this hotel because we didn't want to go for one of the huge hotels in the more built up area of Calella.

When we arrived, at about 10pm, we were told that unfortunately there had been an error in our booking and that we couldn't stay there for that night. Initially we thought 'oh no this is a disaster already' - my mum, who I'd travelled with had previously had similar problems when travelling to sunny holiday resorts and had normally been hugely disruptive. However, this was nothing more than a mild inconvenience as the hotel dealt with the problem very well. We were first offered to go down to the restaurant for a plate of food, despite the restaurant being closed, which we did and the meal was hot and very tasty and with 2 plates full of fruit for desert. They then drove us in the minibus to their sister hotel, Kaktus Playa, within the busier area of Calella and came and picked us up to return to Volga Plus after breakfast the next morning. As compensation, we were upgraded from half to full board, which was very much appreciated and saved us a lot of money during our trip.

The hotel itself is generally excellent. All areas are immaculately clean. The rooms are fairly small but not impractical and are very well fitted out. Walls are thin but fine if that sort of thing doesn't bother you. We had a sea view room (did not book this especially, but called in advance to request it, at the advice on others on here!) and it had a lovely big balcony. Modern and wonderful area to sit by the pool with comfortable sunbeds. Pool appears quite small but in our experience it was not heavily used and therefore this did not present a problem.

The restaurant was perfectly good quality - the meat was, on the whole, not of the best quality, but the seafood looked good (I am allergic so can't eat it myself!) and there was always a good choice at Lunch and Dinner, although it did get a bit repetitive after a week - that said there was something for everyone. Breakfast also had good choice.

The hotel also has a good bar with a cheap cocktail of the day. Didn't use any of the entertainment but it looked like there was a lot on. It's in a quieter area of Calella, but we still found it easy to walk to the shops and old town during day and until about midnight (as 2 safety-cautious women) and SO easy for getting to the station to get to Barcelona/the airport.

Most other guests were Russian or Spanish, staff spoke English although sometimes there were misunderstandings.

Overall, despite a small booking hiccup on this occasion, I would highly recommend Hotel Volga as an immaculately clean, calm and relaxing hotel in a good part of Calella.

Room Tip: It's been said before, but it's all about the sea view rooms.

Stayed for a week April 27 2013. Very clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful. Food excellent with plenty of choice at the buffet. Entertainment of some kind every evening. We had a magician, Belly dancers, Flamenco, Bingo. Our room faced the pool and the sea. Good location near the railway station. You can hear the trains but would not consider them noisy. Return fare to Barcelons 10 euro calling at every station. Went to other towns on market days. We will certainly return.

Spent a week in small nice city of Calella, near Barcelona.
Hotel in eastern part of the city far from big hotels. 5 mins from Railway station - about 1 hour to Barcelona approx.10-15 euro return ticket.
More than 30 mins to Calella Lighthouse.
Big shopping street near. A lot of small restaurants.

Graet breakfast and dinner. Very helpful and nice staff. Had troubles with safe but this was fixed. Staff partly russian-speaking.
Pool on the open air. Beach 5 mins - through the pass under the railways. Long chairs with discount for the Volga guests. Beach is not very big, but not crowded.
Our room was facing the street. Sometimes there were some songs late in the night.
Rooms facing the pool have the view to the see and railways. Don't know if they are noisy :)
Big room with big bathroom. Quite clean. Small balcony.

Totally recommended!
