Reviewed May 30, 2013

the hotel is close to the main line station a pleasant 15 minute walk through a very quiet neighbourhood.The trains to barcelona and the airport are every 20 minutes or so.The hotel was very clean and the staff were helpful throughout our stay.We had a nice room overlooking the pool.The bar was open in the evening till about 22:30.the lovely beach is 10 minutes walk away.with some nice restaurants on the promenade.There are also a vast amount f restaurants to choose from in the town itself.The hotel had a very pleasant atmosphere very relaxed and your privacy was respected.We didn,t eat at the restaurant so can,t comment on that but all in all a very pleasant stay and would return.

This hotel is really close to Castelldefels beach and is only a 15 minute walk from the subway which takes you straight to the city center. The room was nice and clean with a balcony overlooking the pool which was unfortunately closed for some reason. Wifi was decent too in the room.A couple of negatives, there was no bar open in the evenings and the issuing of the tourist tax at check out time was not welcome rather than including it in the price and making me aware of it when I checked in.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights. We jumped on the L99 from the airport to the hotel (located in Terminal 1) which dropped us off right in town. From there we walked 15 minutes to the hotel which was easy enough to find. We had breakfast at the hotel on the last morning and found it a bit over priced for what it was. Unfortunately it was too breezy to go for a swim, but the pool looked nice. It is close to the beach and is in a cozy neighborhood.

The rooms were great. Everything was clean and the receptionists were helpful. Overall it was a good experience and we would go back. There was a sneaky tourist tax of 50cent per night per person that we had to pay before checking out. I don't really get why they didn't just add that to the overall price when we paid for the room.

The hotel is located in a residential area and right next to a sporting complex making the street parking a little difficult.
The hotel itself is nicely appointed with friendly staff and the rooms are quite comfortable and clean, but the evening meal is best missed, fast food some of it cold and not worth €14.

Booked this as it was close to the airport by hire car and were travelling on the next day.
It was well signed from the roadway and was able to find it quite easy despite it being late at night.
Arrived 10 minutes after the restaurant had closed but the receptionist offered to get rolls made up for us, which were ate in the bar with a few beers.
Room was very good and the air conditioning worked, which was a bonus.
Arrived down to reception the following morning to find we'd missed breakfast by 10 minutes, so it would have been useful to have been made aware the previous night of the times of breakfast.
As we were only there overnight there wasn't time to explore the hotel but it gave the impression that there was a lot of facilities there.
Would definitely stay there again for the closeness to the airport.

What a hotel... Quite an experience staying there! Sometimes really had the impression of staying at "Fawlty towers" hotel. I booked this hotel because of the nice pictures on their website, don't be fooled..
The room was dirty (not cleaned at all!), The floor was dirty, pool was dirty...
the restaurant temperature was sub-zero.. Really, it was cold in Barcelona and the dining was not heated, guess temperature was between 5 - 10C. The few guests that were there, went back to the room to get a coat. Food choice was poor (2 options).
