We have just returned from a week in Calella where we stayed at this hotel. We were one of the last of the transfer bus from the airport so got to see quite a few other hotels that people were being dropped off at - when we arrived at Hotel Internacional I was more than happy. It is in an excellent location - opposite the beach, a two minute walk to the underpass (from road, underneath railway, straight on to the beach). Although the trains go past about every 20 mins, they are not invasive and definitely not heard from the hotel (our balcony had a side on view to the railway and beach). The location of the hotel has the benefit of also only being a 5 minute stroll into the heart of Calella town and the shopping district/main restaurant area.
All of the staff we encountered at Hotel Internacional were very friendly and helpful. For a two star hotel the rooms were very comfortable. Although the bed was firm, it was not uncomfortable and I slept without any problems. As we went in September the lack of air conditioning was not a problem as we slept with the balcony door open and that was sufficient.
We had paid for bed and breakfast. Some of the other reviews I have read mention that it is not very good. For the price that we paid, and the fact that the hotel is two-star - there was enough variety (both hot and cold options). They could maybe provide a little more fruit variety (they serve oranges), but this was not a problem. I am sure that all of the other basic hotels in the area probably serve a similar style breakfast. We didnt have lunch or dinner at the hotel so am unable to comment on this. The bar was reasonably priced for the area and clean, with friendly staff. A bottle of wine was €9.
The only downside was the noise on some nights. There were several school groups staying in the hotel and they would go out until the early hours and made a lot of noise on their way back. This I do not believe is the fault necessarily of the hotel, as I think a majority of the hotels in Calella experience school groups staying. The neighbouring hotels also seemed to have a lot of teenagers making noise also.
Overall, for the price, Hotel Internacional was extremely good value for money - great price, great location, clean, comfortable. If I was to visit Calella again I would definitely stay here.
