“Sant Cugat who knew?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

This hotel is very modern and nice. The staff were very helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a pleasant pool and restaurant area. It is quiet for great sleep and relaxation. . The town of Sant Cugat del Vallès is charming and well worth a visit. The drawback is that the hotel is on the other side of the highway so you need to drive or take the train (train station about 5 minutes away). Much cheaper than hotels in Barcelona and totally recommendable.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Stayed here for 5 nights during July and was pleasantly surprised by the hotel as I had always steered well clear of it when it was a Novotel.

My room was pleasant enough and certainly quiet. The let down was the air conditioning which decided to turn itself on one night and I couldn't turn it off. The TV was ok but as seems common with Spanish hotels only a limited selection of non Spanish channels.

Breakfast was good with plenty of continental style choices available and some hot food as well. There were plenty of tables to eat outside on the patio area adjacent to the pool.

There is a small gym which has a couple of bikes and a treadmill and some free weights. All were very clean and in good condition. There is a pool at the hotel which has a few sunloungers around it. The pool is deep so unless you are 7 feet tall you will not be able to touch the bottom. This may be a problem for kids and there are warning notices around the pool.

The restaurant only has a limited menu and is slightly pricey (but not overly so). I tried the 19th Hole which is just round the corner by the Holiday Inn Express.

It is easy to get in to Barcelona from here as Sant Joan FGC station is just round the corner and takes about 25 minutes to get to Playa Catalunya.

Nearer by is Sant Cugat town (2 stops on the FGC) which has lots of bars and restaurants.

Checkout on a Friday morning was a bit slow as there were not enough staff on the desk. Perhaps they could do something about this.

Overall very good and will defintely stay here again.

The hotel is really nice and modern and the staff are very helpful. The rooms are spacious and very clean. There are two different shower options in the bathrooms. There is a pool, restaurant and outdoor area. It is quiet for great sleep and relaxation.

There is a train station about 5 minutes away; the S2 train takes you directly to and from Plaça de Catalunya within half hour. You can also catch a taxi and go to Centre Comercial which is 5-10 minute ride. It has a supermarket, and cheap places to eat.

It is important to note the above because there is nothing around the hotel to do or places to eat within walking distance.

I booked this hotel by mistake, but it turned out to be OK. It used to be a Novotel and was absolutly horrible, but now it has been turned in to a Marriott and been totally renovated so it is very nice. The area it is placed in is a totally uninteresting business area with absolutly nothing to do (except if you have business there), but the metro station is just around the corner, so you can be in the center of Barcelona in 30min for 2€.

Nice and clean hotel very modern. One drawback the resturant menu is very limited. Although there is a taxi rank right outside the hotel which you can visit the centre of Sant Cugat not very far away which is very good with plenty of Tapas resturants.
