“In tune with the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

L'Escala is amazingly beautiful yet quiet and comfortable, and it has the best anchovies in the world. People here worked in fishing many years ago, but the beaches and the Roman ruins in the nearby village make it a great tourist spot - and also an unpretentious one.

The hotel is perfect, in the sense that it fits the local profile perfectly. Comfortable but not over the top, properly maintained with a slight patina of time, The owners are overly nice and hospitable and you feel like a guest in their house. In addition, is very family friendly.The location is very convenient. The prices are very low.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our stay in L'escala. The owner was very gracious and helpful during our stay. The beach, main path, and restaurants, etc are about a 5 minute walk down the hill from the hotel. Good breakfast each morning included with the stay. There is parking behind the hotel. He told us that at night it may get full but we never had a problem. Room and bathroom were a little small but very clean and great for the price. There is air conditioning. We did have a small patio that overlooked the parking lot. Overall, great experience. There is free wif - worked well for the most part.

Nice family run hotel , good location , good service with plenty of free parking. Although the room was simply furnished it was very clean. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. There was an excellent buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. Very good value hotel well worth a visit.

Great little hotel in the middle of L'Escala, with the benefit of car parking to the rear. Rooms clean and bright, bathroom clean and shower worked. Extensive buffet breakfast and all for €50 a night B&B. Worth a visit.

I decided to book this 1 star hotel because of the good reviews I read on booking.com and tripadvisor. The hotel definitely did not dissapoint us! We came by bus from Barcelona, and the hotel is right were the bus drop us off, (good location). Check in was supposed to be at 2pm, but we got there at 11:30 and the room was ready. Even the room was a little old and basic, the room and bathroom were clean and all double rooms had a balcony!
The best things were the free breakfast (abundant) and the front desk, always willing to help guests. This 40 room hotel is family run. I heard brother and sister speaking French and English. The price we paid for one night: 50 euros (double room+breakfast).
We did not use it, but the hotel has a free car parking for about 20-25 cars.
If we come back, we will definitely book this hotel again!

Room Tip: I suppose the rooms in the back part (parking lot) are more quite. However, we stayed in the front s...

Great family-owned hotel close to the old part of L'escala. Might be a bit noisy if you have a room towards the street. Good parking opportunities in the yard, but may be occupied if you come late. Clean rooms, great breakfast buffet and extremely friendly and helpful staff makes this a great place to stay in L'escala!
