The hotel and the peaceful setting were outstanding. The food at the restaurant was some of the best that we had on our trip to Spain.
Situation and room Quality of service poor. Food abysmal
Exellent restaurant and room. The area around the pool pleasant, well taken care of and delightfully undisturbed. The staff professional and very, very kind!!
The Facilities, and restaurant L'Angle are fantastic, great to have mon st benet and alicia beside, rooms were great, and staff helpful Poor choice of menu in restaurant mon, not much available
quality on every level no
The food was very nice - the staff extremely nice - the room was nice too - and quite comfortable. It was like a barracks - no privacy on the balcony - did not like all the dark passages - the pool area was not at all nice - the village was uninteresting
nice surrounding, excellent facility, delicious food the address provided by booking.com is not be able to find by gps
I found the hotel very good for a relaxing break. The staff and food were very good. The room itself was lovely and spacious especially the balcony . The toilet was dirty when we arrived (somebody had used it before us, things stuck to toilet bowl) and the floor had not been hoovered properly. Also when we arrived at the pool there weren't any towels and my husband had to walk to reception 3 times to convince them that there weren't any towels(36 degree heat) , they kept telling him that they were there , towels were then brought by reception staff.
Phenomenal service. Gastronomical meal. First rate facility. I highly recommend this peaceful oasis Absolutely nothing
This is a 4 to 5 star hotel with a 2 to three star service. Try to get the rooms on the lower floor because the terraces are big. It is a very nice hotel, quiet and with a spectacular view over the monastery which is a must see. Great breakfast too. Perfect location to relax. The staff was not very helpful in most cases but nice nonetheless.
Its the 6th Parador that I've stayed in and 8th that I've visited. I felt completely overwhelved by the setting of the Parador within a historic building that appeared to have been carefully restored with absolutely no compromise to creature comforts and great service. I enjoyed classy accommodation that was unique to Spain that totally satisfies international standards. It motivates me to want to stay in all 93 of Spain's Paradors.
The castle and its surroundings are breath taking - a must see / do!
Lovely views and in spectacular historic setting. Excellant menu catering for vegetarians. Very good breakfast selection.
The ambiance and historical context of staying in a "castle" with a history of over a thousand years is a magical opportunity. The place is like a fantasy-come-true. None
Unique location in a historic castle, set on top of a hill with wonderful views. Our room had a 4 poster bed with a view of the old courtyard.
Loved staying in the restored castle on top of a hill with wonderful views of the countryside. Could even view the Montserrat mountains from there!
The best thing about the Parador in Cardona is the experiece of staying in a Castle and have amazing views from any part of the hotel. Friendly staff. Excelent food, both on dinner and breakfast.
Fantastic location on top of a hill overlooking all the countryside. Large bedrooms with large marble bathrooms. Tasty food in the restaurants always served with a smile. Huge breakfast choice. The walk down to the village in 38 degree heat. Very steep and hot. But can't realy fault the hotel for that.
The location was spectacular and the hotel was very nice. Their WiFi was not working
Great Hotel. Great location. Outstanding breakfast and dinner dining room. Exceeded my expectations!
In the center of the monastery of Montserrat, facing the cathedral, but it is a normal hotel.Staying at the hotel allows you to enjoy Montserrat also when it is quiet and peaceful- before and after the swarms of tourists.Breakfast O.K. You may drive to the entrance of the hotel to unload or load your baggage, but then you have to find a parking space in the parking lot, which is not so close. Saying that - there is a "train" to take you back from the parking and to it. Parking costs extra.
In the evening, after the tourists left on the last tram down the mountain, the peace was amazing. It is an experience you cannot get on a day trip. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer, since we were catching a cruise ship the next day. The room was neat, clean, and comfortable. After flying from San Diego, peace of the mountain and a beautiful mass refreshed our spirits. We look forward to staying there again, but next time we will stay 2 or 3 days so we can explore the mountain.
We just loved this hotel. The rooms were clean and had the most comfortable mattresses. Very clean bathroom and some toiletries. The breakfast was adequate, wish they had had some more fruit options. We visited the Monastery and took the funicular up to the top of the mountain, with spectacular views. The location could not be better, right next to the Monastery, and we got to stay in the "old" rooms. The rooms do not have A/C and it was quite hot in September. We left the window wide open and were able to sleep just fine. It was noisy very early in the morning, a lift truck kept going back and forth.
The room was quite big. 1. We booked in advance the room with one king-size bed (not 2 beds). Inspite of it we received the 2 beds. 2. You have to use the outside parking about 1km (not the problem but still...)
Pleasant hotel at the Abbey Square up on the mountain Montserrat. Excellent view, Restaurant with Bib Gourmand i.e. good food for a reasonable price. Buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. We visited off-season and for everybody who wants to combine a bit of contemplation in the beautiful abbey where a boys choir sings every night after verspers with enjoying nature (well marked routes) it is a brilliant place to get away too. After visting Barcelona for three days, two nights at the mountain appeared a perfect short vacation.
Clossness to trails and to the church Having a tree block view from window and construction noise that went into night
Friendly helpful multi-language staff, fabulous breakfast included, updated bath/shower, great daily menu for dinner in the restaurant, piano in lobby No drawers for storing belongings - only shelves, no wireless internet (but wired internet was ok) in rooms, no business/conference room for group meetings
An excellent experience the hotel staff could not be more friendly or helpful. plenty of parking and easy access. We used the hotel restaurant and the 30e menu del dai was superb. Best steak that I have eaten for a long time.
The location is great, ideal for a weekend retreat
It was clear that this was a conference/training centre that offered odd nights as a hotel to fill rooms. The dining arrangements were poor (eg. dinner was a buffet served only between 8:30 and 9:00 pm with very limited choice of poor quality.) Thelift was out of action when we checked out. We had hoped to use public transport into Barcelona but the hotel is too isolated for anything other than using a car to be practical.
The staff was friendly. Pool was nice. Hotel was hard to find. Apereance was too blank. Not much things to do, only for sleeping. First room that we got was not cleaned.
Nothing. We left after 1 night as we had to return home due to family emergency, but i think we would have moved from this place had we been able to stay in spain Location of hotel is wrong side of mountain to easily visit monastery in montserrat. Difficulty finding hotel.Carpets snd ceilings on 1st floor filthy with evidence of leaks.Painters and work being carried out as you try to find room. Room overwhelmingly hot as there was no air-conditioning or fan provided, therefore unable to sleep at night. No restaurant or food available when we arrived, breakfast very poor. This was the worst experience i have ever had when on holidays.
Pleasantness and helpfulness of the staff. Excellent food and price. Proximity to Montserrat. Hotel rooms generally need an upgrade. Carpets were stained, tiles missing on balcony, chips in washbasin.
Setting. Would not like to stay more then one night.
Calm quiet and peaceful setting, hills and mountains and woods around, in a suburb about one kilometer from the highway, close to the mountains and Montserrat abbye, about fourty kilometers or half an hour drive from Barcelona, ask for a room overlooking the swimming pool. If You like the atmosphere of a conference place, maintenance dating back from the 1980's, very much needing restoration, and no good restaurant in about five kilometers, and the nearest historical town about fifteen kilometers away ...
The views from the room, and the peaceful surrounding. The bathroom was not well maintained and clean. You can't open a window, as there is no A/C the room was hot during the night.
The hotel was so quiet. It felt like we had the pool just for us. The mountain in front of the balcony, the sun. You really need a good map, not a GPS to find the hotel. It's not indicated at all, but manageable to find still. The carpet was really old.
The location was very convinient,all services we were waiting of offered,pool good evenso closed on the morning, we would have used it since it was summer and we were tired visiting and travelling. There is no air condition in the rooms, the windows could not stay open because of electrical light in front of the balconies.
Quality of room, free internet in room No hotel restaurant on monday and every restaurant in the town closed on mondays - we had to travel miles to find anything at all!
Everything, could be difficult to improve n any way
Nice atmosphere, good design and good service with personal approach.
The hotel is very well located in the center of the old city and not far from the castle. It is an older building, but very well maintained, and decorated with style and good taste. The young staff is very friendly. Internet worked well. Breakfast was good. Parking is the only problem. The entry of the hotel is on a pedestrian street, there is a parking in the back street, but no access door to that street, so one needs to walk around the block. Also, that is a public parking and not a very big one. We found one of the last two or three parking places, but soon the parking was full and I do not know what other options exist in a busy old city with narrow streets.
excellent town centre location, good parking very close, hotel modern and stylish in an old building, facilities excellent restaurant closed at the time of our visit but this was simply unfortunate -- menu and prices looked interesting
Very helpful reception, with good English. Easy access/parking in Cardona once discovered. Nice lounge & terrace on 4th floor. Poor description on website on how to find hotel & where to initially park. No breakfast menu. Some restaurant dishes disappointing.
Despite the modest price and 3 star rating this hotel turned out to be much better than I expected for a small Spanish provincial town.
I stayed for just one night. The room is a good size. The decor needs updating. The restaurant is overpriced and the main dish was not good.
Friendly stall but poor breakfast arangements
Very expensive for one night. Also one of the reasons we picked this hotel was to have use of the swimming pool and this was not open!
Reception staff were very welcoming, room and bathroom a fair size The room decor was dated and tired, I would have expected a more quality interior for the price paid. It was an okay hotel for an overnight stop on the way to somewhere but I wouldn't want to stay for any length of time.
Friendly welcome, helpful staff, free WiFi, peaceful location, stylish design, good food Rather bad design of shower/bath arrangement.
beautiful location and ambience. Excellent staff and facilities.
Beautifully renewed old building! An old mill where they have obtained the rustic feeling, and yet managed to renew with the tasteful touch of modern spanish and catalan design. The surroundings of the hotel should be better, and the food was too variable in quality to make the place a real pearl amongst hotels in the area.
large comfortable room There are major problems with the electricity supply to the hotel. a generator has to be switched on by request in order to use the lift. Low voltage means the lighting is poor in the rooms (it is impossible to read at night)
pleasant, good food and service. 1 hour from the airport mosquitos
