The house and bedroom suites are gorgeous! And Xavier the manager couldn't do enough for us! He booked us a table for lunch and then walked us to a lovely local restaurant, and even persuaded a local bar to open half an hour early so my husband could watch the football!

Room Tip: We loved the Venice suite as the dark purple soft furnishings and stained glass windows make it very...

Beautiful old 1909 building, lovingly restored into five boutique suites, each different and unique. Some have terraces, some overlook the garden, some see the sea (<100m). Manager Xavier is extremely helpful and hospitable and found us an excellent meal nearby, even walking us to the restaurant and introducing us.

Wonderful hotel, but plan a few extra minutes for finding parking. WIFI works well. Great, quiet hotel.

Room Tip: Website has info on each suite to help you choose; back rooms overlook the garden and are more peace...

I spent a weekend in September and it was an excellent experience.

This place is more like a B & B (although Breakfast is on-request), rather than a hotel. Tucked along a small alley, rooms are (truly) beautifully decorated, equipped with self-catering small kitchen. Guests can enjoy the feeling of staying at most elegantly decorated riends/family's villa, which is so lovely.

Locations is superb, being so close to the centre of Canet de Mar and to the beach.

I notice that one reviewer mentions that there was a traffic noise problem as the place is close to the main road, however, I personally had absolutely no problem at all whilst staying at the room in front. It could simply be the matter of whether or not the guests wish to close the window and use the AC or, leave the window open.

I also notice that one of the reviewers says that manager speaks very little English, however, the management of this establishment changed in May 2013 and the current manager Xavier is a perfectly fluent English speaker who enjoys his job and helping his guests, thus, not only communication is not an issue but the service level is truly superb.

Only concern I should raise is that, since the establishment is basically a private house converted into a hotel, if other rooms are occupied with, say, noisy parties, you will hear them. I was a little unfortunate to share the place with families with babies... So, if one wishes to have a really quiet stay, it would certainly be worth checking with Xavier at the time of booking as to who else might be there at the same time. I can guarantee that he would honestly advise.

The hotel decor and furnishings are a design afficionados dream and the rooms are clean and comfortable.The rooms are in fact more like small studio apartments than standard hotel accomodation.
The proprietor is friendly and welcoming but does not speak a word of English so unless you know a few basic spanish words you will find it very difficult to communicate. the location provides quick access to the promenade and beach and is 2 minutes from the centre of town with a selection of bars and restaurants.
On the negative side, The establishment is situated up a narrow side street just off the busy N11 road . This road is also adjacent to the railway so if you are not used to the sound of traffic and trains at night you will find it difficult to get a restful nights sleep. Also, parking in Canet is a problem and there is nowhere close to the hotel. We parked our car in a vacant lot approx 500 metres away on the side of the N.
