Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very central well run hotel lovely rooms with all the facilities. Minutes from the beach and old town. Parking is easy on the street and they have limited secure parking available .
Rooms are really bright clean and modern and the bed comfortable.
Great value with owners that are keen that you enjoy your stay. Used it twice this year and will be back.

Amazing little hotel with even better hosts. Juan was very welcoming and helped us with our Barcelona itinerary. The breakfast served at El Pekinaire is a highlight. They offer a variety of foods every day. The hotel has a great location, you have everything you need close by and you are just a few minute walk from the beach.

It just does not get better than this hotel for the price- from the warm and friendly welcome to the modern clean comfortable snd cozy rooms to the fantastic breakfast. The service is superb with the “owner” manager always on hand - speaks multiple languages too and has a great sense of humour - £200 a night hotels don’t get this good. Highly recommended

What a perfect little hideaway, quiet, comfortable, spotlessly clean yet still close enough to old town, new town, beaches and all shop’s & restaurants.
Ester and Andraos are fabulous hosts, with lovely personalities to make your stay even funnier and better.
Can’t wait to return.

Stayed here for a few nights back in September. We just wanted a nice few late summer days in the sun, and went for El Pekinaire due to reviews on trip advisor. All the reviews are true, fantastic clean rooms. Great breakfasts. Close to beach and shops/restaurants. Great all round service. A brilliant experience.

I stayed here before many years ago and remembered how great it was back then so returned again with my wife. The entire hotel is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. I have spent twice the amount staying in hotels in neaby Pineda de mar that are not as nice as El Pekinaire. The rooms are spacious with all the facilities you need including flat screen TV and free wi-fi. There are plenty of extras in the beautiful bathrooms including toothbrushes, gels and tissues all in nicely designed El Pekinaire packaging. The rooms all have a balcony and very efficient air conditioning. I love the look of the colourful glass fronted balconies and El Pekinaire mirrors giving the hotel it's own unique branding, excellent design! The staff are friendly and efficient ensuring you are well looked after and have everything you need. The breakfast here is delicious, a good selection of nicely cooked bacon, eggs and beans. There are some delicious cheeses, meats and fruit to choose from too along with a good pastry selection. Tea, coffee, orange juice and toast is brought to your table and Andres will always ensure a top up is available if you need it. I have stayed in many hotels over the years and this is one of my favourites ever, such an amazing place and well worth the money, thanks El Pekinaire for such an amazing stay in Calella!

I stayed at El Pekinaire after reading the excellent TA reviews.
Through my work I’ve stayed at 100’s of hotels worldwide and I believe El Pekinaire (at c €50 per night B&B) represented the best value for money I’ve experienced in Western Europe.
The room (for the price) was excellent, exceptionally clean with good quality fixtures and fittings. The bed was very comfortable, the room well insulated (hence quiet) and the air con worked well. Breakfast was simple but freshly prepared and tasty.
Andres and his wife (& team) were very welcoming and happily lent me a plug adapter for the time I was there. Large chain hotels typically request a deposit or don’t offer loans.
As I booked through the website I also received free flip flops (much needed as the beach was roasting) and a beach towel during my stay.
Andres also arranged (via email) transfers to and from Calella for me.
I wouldn’t hesitate in staying again and thoroughly recommend El Pekinaire.

This place is a little gem, all new facilities, spotlessly clean, safe and secure. Run by a knowledgeable, friendly husband and wife team. Easy 5 min walk to town and beach. Hotel does a great breakfast but no evening meal, however there is a wide choice of food available in numerous restaurants within minutes walking from the door. Had a great night at La Roda. We will come back to this hotel for sure to enjoy a little late sun this year
