Ten minutes down hill walk to the Metro, gets you straight to Plaza Espanya in quick time and comfort. Unfortunately, getting back up the hill is quite strenuous, and its quite dangerous and slippery when wet. Getting a taxi from the hotel is very difficult in the morning, so be prepared to walk it. Once you get to the hotel,...

Moj pobyt od 31.08 do 04.09 nie zaliczam do udanych. Klimatyzacja w pokoju nie pracuje, pomimo staraniach z strony peronelu. W pokoju ukrop nie do wytrzymania. Hotel nastawiony głównie na wesela. Dzisiejsza noc nie przespałem nawet godzinę. Dwa wesela do rana. Zdecydowanie nie polecam i napewno nigdy tu nie wróce. The airconditioner at the room doesn't work, it's horrible hot...

Loved our stay, thank you El Castell. Rooms were cleaned daily and had good aircon with comfy beds and a mini fridge. Pool area had lovely views and sun all day with a little cabana for poolside cocktails. Breakfast was lovely and you could take it out on the terrace and the restaurant was top notch. 24/25 as the wifi...

Staff helpful, reception staff English speaking. Hotel needs some improvements, beds, shutters, shelf in bathroom, lick of paint, though I think some have already started. Lovely pool, with view. Near an old church that has bells ringing until about 9pm, lovely sound! Dining areas very nice, good breakfast, bacon, eggs, fruit, yoghurt, baked goods, tea+ coffee, fruit juice. 10 minutes...

Found this as an alternative to the pricey and low-quality off-airport hotels that surround BCN. Despite the 10-15 minute, 25-30 euro cab ride involved, it was still the best option. El Castell is a faded 4-star full-service hotel that still has some charm, helpful staff, and a pretty good restaurant, situated high atop the hill overlooking Sant Boi just outside...

The hotel is situated on top of the hill in sant boi so if you have small children as a a parent myself I would definitely consider how strong your legs are with a push chair before choosing the hotel . The hotel was lovely,staff friendly and rooms clean, however no facilities for tea and coffee were made available in...

We stayed here the night before we dropped off our rental car and before we visited Barcelona. You need a car or a taxi to get to this place. It was hard to find with our GPS because of one way streets, but they did have several street signs. It's not really near anyplace you can walk. The special menu...

The hotel is in a town that is the size of and has the prettiness factor of Ashford. The hotel itself is on the top of a hill which makes it a slog to get back up from the station and we didn't find a single bar that was open on our way back from days in the city. That...

Situated on a hill, not much around for eating if you don't want to eat at the hotel. Beds very uncomfortable. We ended up with a room with 3 out dated, uncomfortable twin beds. Not much to do at the hotel but works for a quick overnight if the price is right.
