There was a lot to like about the Hostel. The fact it was almost directly opposite a tube-station on a line which also goes to the centre made it the perfect compromise between quiet surroundings and accessibility to the city. The staff welcomed us when I arrived and gave us the full lowdown on surrounding businesses if we did not want to venture into the city at any one time. Going to the beach there was utterly brilliant, it was little used but had a life-guard right there, and the sea was beautilful. The twin-room was basically furnished but it had ample storage, the bed was really comfy and the air conditioning worked well which was a relief. The en-suite was also good. A very minor point but the shower seemed to work on a timed-basis, which was a little inconvenient, but I can see how it suit the dormed rooms, if not the two-person ones!
It was right across the street from a metro/subway station and not too far from the beach. The noisiness of the people at night. People seemed to stay up all night. It was like living in a college dorm with activity at all hours. We had people who were staying at the hostel sitting on the sidewalk in front of the hotel playing music and talking until 4am. We had to leave at 6am the next morning so we did not get any sleep that night.
i thought it was okey, good price with a smal breakfast in the price, near to the beach and metro station, far to the bathroom,
Friendly staff, good location, value for money. Functional distance from room to bathroom and toilet
Remember this is a hostel not a 5* hotel. Basic facilities but convenient for the town centre via the excellent transport system. Friendly people but they left you alone if you wanted privacy. Most important - receptionists are on the wavelength of the traveller. Unusual to have breakfast without plates so you had to eat rolls off a napkin. That's only minor.
Good location...if you have a car. Outdoor pool and sports facilities Decor looking tired
Very quiet location and well maintained. Staff very helpful. Cleaning crew very good. Location was far from train station. Would like the option of a continental breakfast buffet in addition to full breakfast or coffee pot in the room.
the hotel staff were excellent arranging taxis and explaining information Not applicable
the head board on the bed! easy to hold on to! good breakfast choice not near barcelona
The hotel was quiet. The pool was small but we had it all to ourselves. We had a wonderful lunch in the dining room - three courses for €13.00. The buffet breakfast was excellent. All the staff were helpful and friendly and towels and toiletries were changed each day. Hotel was perfect but it is a long walk to the station to get the train into town. Taxis are readily available
The room was clean and the staff was really nice. Its location is a bit isolated but not too far from Barcelona. Did not like that they had limited channels and none in english.
clean hotel, friendly staff.
We had a wonderful room and the breakfast was wonderful. As it was the weekend the restraunt was closed.
Although the hotel was in the middle of an industrial estate, just a 10 minute walk took you to the middle of the town where there were plenty restaurants and shopping and the train station which within 20 mins had you in the centre of Barcelona, 10 return journey ticket only costing just under 10 euros. The hotel was very modern, but very clinical at the same time, the staff were not over friendly, but were helpful with directions etc, our door to our hotel room was broken and we reported it 3 times during our stay and still nothing had been done by the time we left, not good !! Also the pool area could have been cleaner.
good price, nice place. Close to a small town where you can walk and be in nice cofee places. not having free wireless internet. pillows where a bit hard
Hotel was very clean, facilities like swimming pool, gym and sauna all were excellent and service provided by staff was very good as well. Three things I did not like: Our room air condition was not working so it was really really hot during night and there is a strange smell like horse stables nearby which is so strong that we were not even able to open the windows. and lastly hotel is a bit far from the station about 25 mins walk . other than that it is good.
The setting is lovely, the room and its beds were great. Lovely garden. The pool was dirty. It was more like a B&B, or chambre d'hôtes, as the whole family lives in this small hotel, and uses all the customer space. One felt like an intruder at times. The hôtel did not offer any food at all, just breakfast. This could all be due to the fact that we were at times the only guests. The economic crisis is strong in Spain.
An oasis in a hillside town with a friendly and amiable atmosphere; the host was both courtious ad helpful. No
Very friendly and helpful staff. Very nice historic building located in a nice little village just few miles from the coast.
this hostel is very calm and plesant for holidays nearby Barcelona
The Hotel front is main road very busy road and nise too mach.
only that location . realy i did not like the hotel at all bucause the pictures that i saw at the net are not the same in the hotel which was so bad to me and my family .
The comfort, the ease of acces to the train station and the beach. The buffet breakfast had few options and hasn't change at all for 10 days.
nice hotel staff, very helpful and courteous far too noisy due to the main road in front of the hotel
big balcony with sea views (there is only two rooms with big balcony). beach and trainstation was near. nice little hotel. room furnitures was old. breakfast was boring and same everyday.
No bar or restaurant also building work going on at the hotel and no mention of this at the time of booking. Got charged €6 day for parking my car as well.but I think this nshould be free if you are stayingn at the hotel. Breakfast very limited and the same wouls have bben nice to have some variation.
Your hospitality, friendly and family-like atmosphere and communication. Englishspeaking staff. Nothing we did not like.(you cannot do anything about the high-way noise). But very comfortable that there always is one of the staff who is able to understand and speak a little english.
Overall the hotel was nice to live in and the staff were friendly. It's also in a good location close to Barcelona. Most of the staff can't speak English and sometimes ignore you if they don't understand. Also there isn't a good selection for breakfast they only offer you some toast or a croissant with some tea or coffee. No eggs or cereal!! Its would have been good if they had a menu in multiple language so it is easier for customers to order. They can't provide you with lunch or dinner either because they don't have a chef. During the time that I was there for two days we didn't have any hot water because of some gas problems in the area. I think the hotel should have made some alternative arrangement while they sorted this problem.
AC installations were swithcing off automatically after 1 or 2 hours. I think for the economy of energy.
Despite language issues, very friendly and helpful. Good value, and I expect to go back again. EXTREMELY close to the Sunday and Tuesday market. Less than 1km from a very clean and comfortable beach - Forget Barcelonta beach with pollution, building works, and hard sand. Reasonably priced hotel bar. Double glazed, Air con, Tv in each room. 3 blocks from the Metro system. Buy the 5 day pass if you're there for a while. Covers almost all transport. Had no concerns about the staff, for the safety of money or valuables left in the hotel room. Had a minor problem with the room at the start, from a previous tenant breaking a lock, would have taken an hour to correct, changed rooms with no hassle. Internet access is too expensive. The rooms have single beds only. A double is just two singles pushed together.
I liked the kindliness of the staff, the simple, but confortable room, the good location of the hotel (outside the downtown, but 15 minutes from there by metro) mainly the language problem, they don't speak any language, exept their native language, The other problem was the noise on this front of hotel (the hotel locates too close a motorway flyover)
close to metro station, very friendly, helpful staff breakfast- there is no big variety of choice
lovely area,beach few minutes away,very spanish. it was quite cold inside the hotel
Good location but the room is too small!
liked the location from the venue CCIB,also well connected by tube ,train,tram,bus
breakfast This Hotel is overpriced. To use the spa and pool costs an extra 30Euros, most of the equpiment didn't work. . The glass shower door which was heavy fell off the bath onto my leg . Had to call the manager to complain as the rest of the staff unhelpful. Vastly overpriced. Room was the smallest I have ever stayed in. This will be the last time I ever stay there. Was 5 star now 4 star and should really be 3 star. Had stayed many times before but not again after the last time.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Package desription on website did not explain very well that many parts of the spa were not included.
I adored being able to wear my bathrobe even while sat at the downstairs bar with my laptop enjoying lunch and wifi. The wifi in my room was terrible. It dropped my connection every few minutes because of a weak signal and there was no LAN cable to connect to.
comfort and convenience
The village, and the staff are polite. Poor value for money, not just the hotel (which is not a luxury hotel by any stretch) but also the food, which is of average quality but pricey. The atmosphere's not a relaxing one, as the staff don't control the children in the pool (even if you complain), and so it has a Port Aventura/Butlins feel. The building is enormous, monolithic and quite ugly, and the rooms are dark with tiny windows, especially on the ground floor and 2nd floor. The staff also speak no Catalan, even to their catalan clients, in a catalan area, adding to the impression of a chain which drafts in staff from the outside and makes no effort to integrate with the village, steeped in catalan history. Doesn't hold a candle to beautiful Balneari Prats, just down the road.
an excellent hotel. Beautiful, comfortable rooms. Good staff. Location on 3 out of 5. The second time I stop in the future, if you plan to arrive in Barcelona. Select this hotel. ---
Magnifique, la liste est longue : - breakfast for 4 euros possible - possibility to leave the car face the hotel - the water is treated - the mirror in the bathroom has a stuff again the moisture - hotel at 20 min from center by car directly with autoroute - air conditioning good and free, procure a good smell in the room - the window can not be open at first but you can ask for a pass at the welcome - personals for breakfast and room 300% nice at the welcome 60% 100% depending on the person - 2 dustbin on the room - useful sponge 4 shower - hair dryer - automatic water closet - gym room - the swimming pool is not too big but I realy like it a much it's very class super clean and calme and too class - internet 4 free - printer 4 free. Hotel at 20~25 min from center by car directly with autoroute - the window can not be open at first but you can ask for a pass at the welcome - you can hear when some one leave the room or enter ------------------------- other positive point there is a shopping place next to the hotel - Free parking possible
Very good.. Why not free cold water on this hotel, like hotel Maritime in Barcelona 4 stars ?
the bed room and bathroom were large The lack of an iron/ironing board was unfortunate
Het erg fris en schoon. En het personeel is zeer goed. Er zou gratis wifi zijn in het hotel, het lukten ons alleen niet om daar gebruik van te maken i.v.m. verkeerde gegevens op onze kamer.
friendly staff, very welcoming Perhaps the chice of breakfast
The hotel is recent and modern. The restaurant is good. Difficult to find. The map in Via Michelin and Bookings points to a wrong city (Sta Perpetua). On top of this the streets around the hotel are all one way, you can turn around the hotel before finding it. The hotel is actually joint with the supermarket PUNT, so better follow this direction. The car park is shared with Punt, 10 euro/night.
the rooms were excellent
It was very easy and very cheap to get into and out of Barcelona on the train/metro although the trains in the evening were only once an hour. The breakfasts were very good and they had a good menu du Jour in the evening. The hotel was spotless and good quality fittings everywhere. There is an excellent supermarket nearby and we used the mini bar to store our stuff without any complaints from the hotel. Parking was easy right outside the hotel or under cover nearby. There was not a convenient socket near a mirror for my hair stuff. The lighting was very subdued for reading. Take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper as the station is very near. The restaurant is closed at weekends and there are only 2 cafe/bars both of which allow smoking inside.
Nice room It is not finished yet. No access to pool. No iron or ironing board in hotel. Gym is 3 machines. Menu in restaurant is limited.
Modern, Clean, tidy and quiet. Pleasant room. Lack of dining facilities
free internet access and parking facilities plus easy access to transport links and quiet location No
The staffs were always keen to help and friendly .
Large room, well furnished and equipped. I had trouble following the directions, but luckily saw the neon sgn and was able to follow that.
comfort and cleanliness was professional. I couldn't use the internet in the room.
Top floor room with marvellous veiws Breakfast became a litte boring and the scrambled eggs were awful
Clean and good design of Room. Nice Area, not to close to Barcelona but nice if travel by car. There are some nice restaurants near hotel within walking distance. There could be more amenities.
Cool and clean To dull nothing happening...
Location and helpfulness of staff, free internet access, cleanliness of rooms. Breakfast too late for business travellers (07:00), restaurant shut on Sunday and opens late (20:30) in evening, very difficult to get a taxi during the morning rush hour, music in corridors can be heard in the rooms (although staff will turn off when asked if after 21:00!).
walking access to family, good restaurants and pleasant shopping area breakfast at hotel geared towards Spanish business travellers and not 'holiday' visitors from other countries
Facilities, design and comfort are excelent.Ideal for those coming to ESADE business School, which is one of the best in the world
Car Parking was very expensive considering this was not the centre of a large city
Swish, friendly hotel that makes you feel comfortable at all times. Excellent restaurant, fabulous breakfast.
Very cosy, well equipped hotel up in the hills behind Villasar de Dalt. It is located right next to a church which rings its bells every hour ; I loved that, but it may not be appropriate for light/irritable sleepers! Loved the atmosphere, good service, excellent restaurant. Spent 3 nights there and really enjoyed it!! The restaurant is very good, and open to the public (and often full). The prices however are excessive, even if the food is good. We will happily return to the hotel, but, sadly, not to the restaurant (but it is the only restaurant in the immediate vicinity, hence perhaps the too high prices?). Breakfast was listed on the hotel desk at 6 euros but we were charged 8 euros/person... we were gone when I realized this so didn't ask for an explanation. Room rates were very good for the service provided.
Special atmosphere of the building and interior. Excellent restaurant with a beautiful view. If you arrive by car, it can be very difficult to find a parking place.
Nice restaurant. Reception staff fabulously helpful in liaising with British Consulate over some documents lost elsewhere
Very comfortable rooms, good service and excellent food War perfekt
All: the service, the room, the breakfast etc... The parking for the car
We liked to be able to use the Spa and fitness facilities for free. The staff was friendly and helpful. On Saturday there was a big party with loud music that was heard in the room. It lasted past 1 AM and it was impossible to get a hold of the front desk.
We stayed twice at this modern hotel, every time for 1 night. First stay was better, we were given a more spacious room with loggia, proper for 3 adults and 1 child (2 big beds and 2 comfortable additional beds). Included facilities were good: swimmimg pools (inside and outside) & jacuzzi (incl.free towels), massage chairs, free coffee machine, PC & printer, parking. Very nice lobby and exterior. We would definitely stay here again and we reccomend it, especially for the quality-price ratio. About link with Barcelona: having a car made it easy for us. Our second stay we were given a rather small room for 4 beds, but was OK.
Excellent hotel for an overnight stay. Comfortable and very modern
the staff at this hotel where excellent and nothing was to much trouble for them. very apologetic about the way the hotel was run by senior management. Quality of the food on certain days some of the food we ordered was uncooked especially the chicken club sandwich which was unedible, i was told by at least 3 other guests that they had complained about the food and it had jkust fallen on deaf ears. we where told that we could pay for our food on termination of stay but after 2 days we where told that this was not the case and that meals had tbe paid for after each visit to the restaurant. we tried to see the manager but was told that he was not available. there was no changing facilities for the gym or swimming pools, they made more fuss of the local police who made visits to the hotel for coffees at least 4 times a day and they completly took over the coffee bar
Nice staff, beautiful view to hills and Granollers, clean and spacious room, spacious and very well furnished gym, inside and outside swimming pool There was only a wall shower in the bath. Hard to find parking place in the centre of Barcelona - use the train and subway, that's better!!!
Room accommodation is fine. Restaurant serves remarkably good food and is very well presented. Spa facilities, included within the room tariff - really great! Excessive noise from function rooms on lower ground floor - wedding receptions, etc. Ask before booking!!
the room was extremely comfortable and clean. The room had little side balcony that we opened to enjoy the sun. The design of the hotel was beautiful. And convenient location for our stay
Nice and clean rooms, spacious lobby and nice breakfast buffet In the bar they had no plastic bottles or plastic cups which could be taken to the pool area (only glass botlles which was forbidden to bring to the pool). Very few of the staff could speak English (general problem for Barcelona).
We did book 4 double rooms but when we arrived there was only twin beded rooms available, told doubles were alocated to couples first, then solo occupancy 2nd. it would be better if we were told before arriving as confirmation stated doubles were confirmed on booking receipt.
Nice location, conventient to train station
the price the parking. the price is good, but it is very small for big cars.
The helpful staff. How far away it was from the city centre.
they helped the maximum
Free ADSL, big plus with other hotels where you have to pay for. Based on a close area for where I need to work, and you can park your car in front of the hotel, although it's a footway. Internet didn't worked all the week, some problems with checking in where we were not on the list, but they solved it. They were rebuilding it, so a lot of noise
Hotel staff speakes different languages. There was always someone at the desk. Good wireless connections. acoustic isolation between the rooms is not so good.
Noise coming from the street
Nice and easy. Location is good if travelling by car.
Ok for the value. Good breakfast, nice/helpful staff, free internet. Parking place!! Quit difficult to find in the evening.
Very close to Race Circuit. A very basic hotel in industrial suburb of Barcelona but fair at the price. no non smoking rooms
Nice hotel, friendly staff. The room was good, strange arrangement with the TV - difficult to be seen staying in bed. The address is very vague. Difficult to be localised through the GPS. I had to use the geo coordinates for that.
Excellent standards all round None
Fridge and stove saved us money. Very helpful and freindly staff. Location worked but it would have been nice to be closer to the city,
Good sized rooms and fairly well equiped though needed to ask if wanted kitchen equipment. Kept very clean, with cleaners attending when it suited you. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Quite noisy - could hear lots of noise from other rooms. Restaurant disappointing - particularly for breakfast - get there early as they don't restock food - once it is gone it is gone! We chose not to eat there on several occasions for this reason.
Almost everything, though was slightly expensive price
Restaurant was not eactly super
Well-sited for trains to Barcelona, local buses and shops in Granollers. Clean, comfortable and well-appointed rooms. Good breakfasts. Helpful staff with good English.
The cleaning of the room was excellent. (thanks ladies/señoras) The beds where -at least for us- comfortable. The breakfast (desayuno) was very good/muy bien. Also very considerate of the hotel; last day, we didn't have hot water to shower, there was a problem with the watersystem. After some hours they fixed it and they did a deduction on the bill. We were very pleased with that. Also reception was kind and answered our questions adequately. Close (5 minutes walk) to the public transport railway Renfe, 20 minutes to the center of Barcelona. Parking space below a nearby building. Takes some driving skills to drive down, but it's not very difficult to park. Not negavtive, but room for improvement: Well the room was a bit cold at night, so the sheets where not sufficient. Of course there was heating (calefaccion), but sleeping with that on is not a good idea (headache). We brought one duvet ourselves (cartrip), so with that there was no problem. Maybe a waterboiler, to make coffee/tea more fast, but this is just a detail.
The room was very clean and adequate suppplies of all room essentials like shampoo bath liquid were made The staffs are very friendly
Good service, breakfast good.
Hotel staff was very friendly, near to Barcelona There was railway between the hotel and beach.
The location is very good - just some metres from the beach. And very good connection to Barcelona by train.
The greatest thing about this hotel is its location - it is only a couple of minutes from the Badalona station, and the centre of Barcelona is about 20 minutes by train. However our stay was not complication free (the air condition unit was broken first night), the reparation was made as soon as possible and the compensation was offered.
I liked the amazing view from our balcony and your beds. They are really comfortable. There was smell of sewage and there were a lot of ants in our room.
t was exactly what I had expected. The rooms were just as specified. Excellent
The view The train
Service was great,hotell staff was really kind and they helped us whenever we asked.I would choose the same hotel if I go to badalona again
the closeness of the sea
I booked room with double bed but when I entered the room there were 2 single beds. Staff said double in Spain means 2 beds. Anyway they changed the room. There were no hair dryer and second blanket in the room but you can ask for them at the reception. There was no switch for heating so we could not turn on the heating.
