Reviewed 6 February 2013

about as close as you can get to the gondola. i was half board. food was OK. typical European buffet for breakfast and evening meal. nice selection but a bit repetitive. i ate herefour times in the week and twice at the Argentinean steak bar across the road. the bar is ok in the hotel but there are a few more in te town so probably better to go there.
i cant complain about much in the hotel it was a good price in a great location. would use again.
i was in the roof room which was classed as budget i think. it was fine

Stayed here for one week in Jan 2013 with Neilson Ski Holidays. The ideal location just 50 yards from the gondola station makes this a very tempting choice but I urge you to think twice. If you value a good night's sleep, comfortable beds and a hot tasty meal at the end of a long day then go elsewhere.
Breakfast was adequate with a cold continental style buffet so you could eat as much or as little as you needed. Reception was rarely manned but they are able to provide ski lockers for €10 deposit. If you have a snowboard, don't use them, my board got scratched as they aren't well made. You can also get a remote control for your tv for a similar deposit. TV's have a built in DVD player but difficult to operate due to positioning.
Dinner is hit and miss. A hot meal is definitely needed after a long day on the slopes but you won't get one in the Comapedrosa. The servery isn't used properly, even the plates stored inside only reach lukewarm. There will always be a pasta dish, a meat dish, a fish dish and some veg put out but the lids are left open so the heat escapes quickly especially in the cold dining room. Kids will have chips and pizza or chicken nuggets and the like but these are left to go cold. Desserts are bought in and defrosted though mine was still frozen in the middle. Drinks have to be paid for in cash each night and you also had to handover a meal voucher each night, very odd arrangement.
The rooms are basic. At the front of the hotel you get street noise which many complained about having suffered from disturbed nights caused by bar crowds making their way home. The back facing rooms overlook a fast flowing river which sounds like an air con unit going 24/7. The heating was sporadic, sometimes too hot to get under the bed covers or none at all when you needed to dry off clothing.
The telephone in our room didn't work and when I pulled the bed out I found there was a power and phone socket hanging off the wall.

Arinsal itself is a very friendly resort with a good but limited choice of bars and restaurants many with English speaking staff. We would definitely go back again but to a different hotel. There are free buses to different resorts and the trip to Caldea Spa was worth every euro!
If you are considering a trip here please bear in mind, you get what you pay for!

Spent a week at the Comapedrosa with my 20 year old son and his 20 year old friend. We had a fantastic time. The hotel is basic but small and cozy and clean, friendly staff, most of them english. Our room had a balcony lcd tv with dvd an usb built in an a bathroom with shower over.
Plenty of room for the 3 of us. We only slept in it anyway.
I would say it was more like a hostel than a hotel. Would definately recommend it and return if visiting Arinsal again. We where half board which was as much as you can eat with a great choice every night and the food was great. you has about 4 choices of main course at dinner plus soup, salad, bread, dessert. I can say the food was great as i had all choices every night, Well i had to keep up my energy for skiing.

Location is probably the best in Arinsal, you fall out of the front door and can through a stone and hit the ski lift.

If you want a proper 4 star hotel then pay the high price, if you want good value for money, lovely food and a great skiing experience then just book this hotel.

Beer here the cheapest in town as well and i lost count of the amount of free shots the boys got, yes i had a few as well.

We never had a problem with any noise apart from a few nights when some young lads would go to there room shouting but then you can get this in any hotel unless your the only guests, !!!!

Very disappointed with this hotel....don't go if you want to sleep! The hotel has a bar and we didn't get to sleep before 4am because of the noise. The first room we were given was the size of a box and the bathroom door was hanging off. We bumped into our neighbours as they also changed rooms. We were witness to waitresses having a daily battle to close the dining room while we were eating our breakfast and one day our son couldn't get into the dining room because of this ongoing battle. They also charge 20 Euros to use the safe in the room - extortionate! Our Neilsen rep was aware of this but chose not to get involved. Needless to say we wont travel with them again or go anywhere near the Hotel Comapedrosa!

Room Tip: Don't go there

Staying at Comspedrosa with Neilson skiing on last minute holiday.
Fantastic location about 1 min walk to gondola up to the mountain, great little bar with pool table and table football as well as a selection of après skiing places nearby.
Breakfast is cereal, rolls, ham, cheese etc, dinner soup/salad buffet followed by choice of three basic mains and a pastry/ yoghurt dessert. Food not excellent but perfectly adequate for post skiing hunger and Lucy the waitress superb.
Rooms are basic, twin beds, wardrobe, bathroom but have flat screen tv with DVD player so really all you need. In response to some reviews saying beds were uncomfy they are firm, which I prefer, so no complaints there.
Only complaint and reason for 4* not 5* review is that our room faced the road which gave us a lovely balcony with great views of the mountains, gondola, shops, etc but was right above the bar so sleep was disturbed every night at least 4 or 5 times with revellers exiting!! Also opposite a beautiful church whose bell was pretty loud every hour. Good 8am wake up call but I would suggest requesting a quiet room away from the front of the hotel.
All in all a real gem, food ok, rooms basic but location and value a complete winner. Highly recommended!

The hotel staff were very friendly. The rooms were very basic and small but kept clean. I would suggest they need to look at their evening meal as the food was ok i.e. variety but the temperature of the food was often cold and also very salty. We stayed there for a 4 day break to ski, which was great because of the position right next door to the cable car. One of the down falls was because it was so central was it was very noisy at night either from party goers or holiday makers leaving early to get flights which was a real shame. Over all we had a good time.
