I can’t say enough good things about this hotel. We spent 8 days here mid-September.
We had a nice room with a view of the sea.
The location was great. We had big suitcases and a carry on each and had no problem taking the train from the airport. We spent 3 very full days in Barcelona seeing the main tourist sights. The train was as fast and easy as reported. Do a little research to figure out where you want to go when in Barcelona, very good connections to busses and Metro but you have to know where you are going. It was so nice at the end of the day in the city to get back to quiet Castelldefels!!
The beach was beautiful, water was warm. We rented chairs and umbrella on the beach many days, 6 euros each (18 for 2 chairs and an umbrella). Never crowded! Great for walking.
The pool at the hotel was nice, shade under the umbrellas if you want it. The water was cool, not nearly as warm as the ocean. Great to have breakfast beside the pool.
The rooms were nice, kind of an old world charm. We liked the convenience of the 2nd floor (considered first floor in Europe), up a quick flight of stairs to the room. The bed was firm but nice linens. There is a fridge stocked with items for purchase. We took those out to put our things in. The shower had great pressure. There is no North American outlet, you need a converter/adapter for any plug ins. There is no clock in the room so bring one if you, like me, want one beside your bed.
The internet was good, and there is a computer and printer in the lobby to print boarding paqsses.
Breakfast was good, some nice pastries and fresh fruit! Good coffee.
We were thrilled with our choice, the staff was wonderful, Castelldefels felt very safe, great beach.
We took the train one stop over to the main (small, walkable) city of Castelldefels which has many stores, cafes, restaurants, a shopping centre and even a movie theatre.
I think this hotel is a best kept secret, good value too, we couldn’t be more pleased and will definitely be back. less
