“All in all a great stay”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We spent a week here and enjoyed the stay. A few minutes' walk from the beach, 15 minutes from the airport in taxi (27 euro) and 1 hour in bus to the center of Barcelona (Line 94). The goal of the visit was to relax by the pool and on the beach, and the hotel was perfect for this.

The pool had ample room and obviously a lot of kids, but it was not much of a nuissance. Friendly hotel employees, and an open bar in the lobby. We were not very impressed by the restaurants in the area, but maybe we were just unlucky. We did however find a bar that we absolutely loved: http://takuabar.com/ They serve the best nachos I have ever tasted.

The hotel did not have WiFi in our room even though that was advertised on Hotels.com, and the breakfast was mediocre at best. It really doesn't take that much effort to make a decent breakfast, but it just wasn't very good. However, the breakfast did have fruit, yoghurt, cereals, scrambled eggs with sausage and bacons (inedible in our opinion, very watery eggs and seemingly boiled bacon, not crisp at all) and the usual white bread with cheese and variations of meat.

Room Tip: Floors below 2 have access to free WiFi, above and including the 2nd floor the WiFi is very unstable...

For flying out of BCN the next morning, it's perfect. Clean, great location, good breakfast spread before your flight. Wifi worked ok in the lobby, not so much in my room. A/C, fridge in room, fairly quiet even on the ground floor next to the pool!

Selected this after reading reviews on the internet. Fortunately it was a good choice and we were impressed with this hotel. Nice big and clean rooms with nice tv. We ended up staying 3 extra nights as were so happy there! Breakfast also nice with plenty options. Wi-fi good on the lower floor & first floor but not working on top floor. Staff was great and helpful. Reception area very nice and clean. Parking expensive (€14 day) but the staff helped us to find free parking just outside the hotel. Pool area looked nice but we didn't use it as the sea is just 300m from the hotel. We would love to recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: Wi-fi didn't work on top floor but the room was a tiny bit more modern than the one downstairs.

Only 15 minutes to BCN airport.

A quiet room that we slept well in. we were only here for 20 hours, so can't comment on Dinner or Breakfast service. Bar service was a bit hit & miss - but no complaints.
Reception service was fabulous, let us look at the room before we moved in & gave us a quick early check out. A few blocks away from the beach (short walk) - but for what we needed (a good night's sleep close to BCN) - this did the job really well.

One notable downside - the rooms smelled very soapy - we saw 2 rooms - both had this problem, plus my mum stayed in another room - which had the same strong soap smell - it came from the sheets, we think - but air out the room for a while and you don't notice it as much.

We had called at two or three hotels before we were directed to this one. The others were all backing on to the beach and were full. This one is a couple of blocks away from the sea and, although a three star, it felt more like a four or five star. Rooms well proportioned, nicely furnished and clean. Fantastic breakfast. and an amazingly helpful member of staff. Didn't get her name but she was on duty in reception when we arrived on the afternoon of the 10th of October. This young lady will go far! A real credit to her employers.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at this holiday. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. I must comment on the breakast, which is excellent. I had just spent 5 nights in a Barcelona central 4 star hotel, at 3 times the cost of the Ciudad de Castelldefels. The breakfast and service there was inferier to the Ciudad. There is a nice pool and plenty of sun beds. It is a bit of a walk to the station but worth the effort to stay at this gem of a hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review at TripAdvisor.

We are glad your stay in Hotel Ciudad de Castelldefels were nice and pleasant.

Castelldefels is a beach town close enough to Barcelona to spend holidays that perfectly combines city and beach at lower rates than in the city center. It is a great option with the same or even better quality!

We hope to see you soon again.

Best regards,

We stayed here on a room only basis. The room was great, and had a very large bathroom. The hotel staff are also very helpful. The wifi has to really be used in the foyer area as it doesn't reach the rooms.

The beach was a five minute walk away and it was a great beach, never too crowded. The best restaurants we found were some slightly more expensive restaurants on the beach front, but well worth it. There is a supermarket and a bakery just around the corner too, which we went to for breakfast.

The train station isn't far from the hotel, although if you have a lot of luggage it might be worth getting a taxi, but we just had hand luggage and a suitcase so we walked (approx 15 minute walk). We also used the train to get to montserrat from here, which took about 2 hours, but was about 24euros per person, including cable car up the mountain, which was well worth it. It is easy to get the train from the airport here too, just change at prat de llobregat and get a train going to platja de castelldefels. It took about 45 mins to get there and if you buy the T-10 ticket then each of your ten journeys cost less than a euro each!

We also rented bikes from the hotel for 6euros for 4 hours, which we used to go to the main town.

The surrounding area of the hotel is really just best for the beach although you could get into barcelona centre too, although I would recommend staying closer to barcelona on a metro line, if you aim just to do that. There were many watersports on the beach just near the hotel as well that you could take advantage of, although we didn't.

Overall a really nice hotel though, and I would recommend staying here.

Dear guest,

Thanks a lot for your comments about Hotel Ciudad de Castelldefels.

I am sure your tips about the area will help other users! We are glad you used our new service of bike rental, Castelldefels beach has a huge walk in front of the sea, plenty of runners, bikers, and roller skaters enjoying it through all the year.

Please, let me tell you that at this moment we are improving the wifi signal in order to reach all the rooms. The Hotel has 103 rooms and there are only a few that due to the orientation have worst signal, fortunately we are working to solve this promptly.

Hope to see you again in Castelldefels.

Best regards,
