Solifemar Aparthotel
Ranked #8 of 17 Hotels in Castelldefels
Reviewed 13 December 2013

Astonished that this hotel is so highly rated. Admittedly its clean and the appartments are quite well equipped, also its very close to the beach..However - there is a Karaoke bar which is part of the hotel that gos on till 4am every night - if you are in one of the rooms are appartment in proximity - you will not sleep. Also the appartments are accessed by metal stairs which go past your door, you may be kept awake by drunken revellers up and down the stairs all night long. So if you want to sleep properly (as i do), amybe not a good idea. The breakfast at six euros consists of a glass of orange juice, a coffee and a croissant - take my advice and dont choose it as part of your room payment. Have fun

Room Tip: As far away from the bar as possible,

This is a convenient hotel overlooking a nice beach close to a lot of restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood. There is a free car park behind the Hotel and adjacent bar-restaurant. Room is well equipped with airco, microwave and big refrigerator. Flat screen TV is a bit too small. Bathroom with shower, toilet and bidet very efficient . Overall good sized and clean. Nice restaurant staff and very helpful and knowledgeable receptionist. All at very reasonable prices. We paid €70 a night incl. continental breakfast. What else do you need ? Maybe a car to go sightseeing in the surroundings (Begues, Villafranca, Castellet, Villanova y Geltru, Sitges). There are free bikes and a busstation to Central Barcelona is a 5 min walk away. Better is to use a RENFE train, but the train station is a long walk. A stay at the Solifemar is highly recommended.

A wonderful location overlooking the beach.Very friendly and efficient staff and excellent room service.I would say that the facilities offerred would not make for easy self catering however there are several very good beach side restaurants within 10 minutes walk and we found them to be not to expensive and very good quality food.Our apartment was on the 2nd floor and quite large, there was some noise from the unit immediately above ours.Other reviews have highlighted a noisy Karaoke but during our stay we heard no sound of this and if on one of the front apartments then these do not face the club/restaurant area.The bus for central Barcelona is about 5 mins walk away.The busses are frequent ( L9 ) and take about 40 mins to Placa Espanya however be warned we purchased a 4 day pass only to find that this was not valid for this service so had to buy additional tickets. The RENFE station from which these tickets are valid is a long walk from the hotel so is not really a realistic option.A better alternative could be the 10 trip ticket at Euros 9.80 available from tourist,metro offices and machines.These tickets are transferable and the vending machines accept UK credit and Debit cards.There are several web sites that give the conditions relating to the use of these tickets.I would recommend the Solifemar and would always use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea are by far and away the best

Front view from your terrace - what can be better? My God, I just love it all! Nice, quiet residential area. Room is very simple, well - you need just your bed and I was sleeping like a baby and the sea was "singing" its lullaby..
The kitchen has all minimum to prepare the food.
Bicycles are for free - let yourself enjoy with nice ride on wild and long boulevard by the sea and pine trees! I felt myself like a child :) Thanks a lot "Solifemar" to made my stay unforgetable!

Room Tip: Room on the 3th floors - with terrace and chaise longs - and with direct sea view.

We picked this hotel/apartment because its near the British School, but we loved staying here as it is right at the beach front, of a very wide beach, with a long boulevard for running and skating. And as a bonus it is only 20-25 minutes to the center of Barcelona by car (30 Euro taxi).
Great stay with young kids!
