“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

Just stayed for 4 nights at this hotel and basically got just what we expected. Good quality hotel ideal for a easy relaxing break after our 4 nights in barcelona. UNfortunately we were unlucky with the weather and were unable to spend much time by the pool. So not much else to do. My only real criticism would be that some of the staff need a bit more customer service training. Culminating in a 10 minute debate with the young female duty manager as to why I wasnt allowed to take 2 coffee cups up to my room and a prior discussion with a barman why I couldnt have 2 wine glasses for my room but if i bought 2 glasses of wine i could take them. Also the free bus service wasnt available to us because we had booked using an outside agency.

We spent 3 days in Barcelona after a trip to Salou and our hotel we originally booked in Barcelona messed our booking up so our agent chose this.
It was a bit out of the way, but the train station was only down the road so was not a major problem.
The hotel was very nice and looked far better than our original hotel so we were happy. The room and hotel were very modern, clean cut and we enjoyed our stay.
Not much to do in this small surrounding area though there was a shopping/food plaza not too far away.

This is not a "designer" hotel, but nevertheless a stylish modern interior.
The exterior is pretty bland and there are no balconies, but they may not be necessary in the summer heat anyway.
Rooms are good, clean and spacious. Common facilities are good too. My wife and I enjoyed the varied food served at breakfast. The price/value ratio was very good for the area, too.
The train station of Casteldeffels is about 15 mins walking, or if you have a car take it, because parking is free around the station. Trains to central Barcelona run every 15 mins and are only 1EUR if you buy a 10-T ticket for 10EUR good for 10 trips, including multiple persons in your party.

I have stayed here a few times now and it’s just ok. The location is kind of industrial although it’s close to the Olympic rowing lake and its not far from excellent selection of restaurants on the beach 10 minuets away by taxi. The decor is bland and the atmosphere is soleless, the few staff that there are friendly enough. When you check in they ask for the full payment up front, breakfast was included and to a reasonable standard. All other services are on a pay as you go basis. Other meals are available from a very limited snack menu from the bar. These meals are prepared by the barman and when he’s doing that there’s no barman! There are two pools at the rear outside, although not in season during our stay. There is also an outside sitting area with tables some of which had last nights half eaten sandwiches un cleared. Our room like the rest of the hotel was again minimalist in terms of decoration and facilities and was located at the front of the hotel, the quieter option as at the rear of the hotel is a noisy main highway! There is free Wi-Fi and it works!
There are shopping malls close by with fast food available which other guests were clearly using. The railway station is 20 minuets walk away and user friendly, it takes about 20 minuets to get to the centre of Barcelona and the tourist buses etc.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are quieter than those at the rear.

I stayed there only one night after departing at 11 p.m. It took about 20 minutes to get to hotel by taxi. Hotel staff is very useful, professional and english - spoken. Check-in and check-out made immediately. Room good equipped, clean with smooth working AC; worth its 4 stars. Bed wide and comfortable. Good choice in case of business meeting. Close to the beach, but we cannot use it.

We got to the hotel taking the railroad train directly from the airport, it was about 3-4 stop and drops us off at the Castelldefels stop. We decided to walk there thinking it was close from the station....boy...were we wrong. It took especially long because we didn't know where we were going, we must have asked at least 8 people for directions. It made it even more difficult to locate the hotel because the name on our confirmation ticket was different from the sign on the hotel. On one side of the hotel, the sign just says "Hotel". I strongly advise the management to correct this.

All the receptionist we encountered were very helpful, from check-in to giving directions. In fact everyone in Barcelona is very friendly towards tourist. The room is modern and clean looking, very spacious with hardwood floors. Their bathroom does not fall to short from bathrooms in Ritz Carltons. Only complaint is the lighting, I though it was a little to dark. I guess it warm in Barcelona all year round; we were offer a thin skeet of blanket in 55F temperature. There is a thicker blanket in the closet but it was not comfortable since it kept falling off the bed at night.

Walking to the train station is about 15-20 minutes. We opted to take the taxi back and forth to the train station most of the times for 5 euros. But never to Barcelona (our destination), because that would break our wallets. The railroad trains do not come as often as the metro trains serving the city center, it also stops running at midnight. The train ride to the city center is about 30 minutes.

The hotel provides guest with free wifi. However, it did not work in my room. I notify the receptionist about this but nothing was done. I think it was just that section of the hotel that had poor connection because it worked in the lobby. They do offer computer in the lobby for guest to use free of charge.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel if you are getting a stellar rate on the room. I was only there for two days so it was not worth the hassle wasting so much time commuting to the Barcelona to see the attractions.

It is a little bit out of town but I didn't mind, the bus was only 2 euros and runs 24 hours a day if I remember correctly. Hotel was lovely and staff were amazing had a great time. Would definately go there again if I went back to Barcelona
