Situated 22 kilometers from Barcelona, in Castelldefels, the Best Western Hotel Mediterraneo is a charming hotel with nice rooms, pool, excellent restaurant and a friendly crowd always willing to help you. It is located at the sea walk of the beach of Castelldefels, a little village just 20 minutes south of Barcelona. The hotel is next to the train and bus stop to Barcelona Center as well as very near to Barcelona Airport (15 minutes) and Barcelona Congress Area (20 minutes). The Castelldefels beach is a very large, quiet and peaceful soft sand beach, perfect for walking, swimming and relaxing. Being the opposite of an overcrowded summer resort, Castelldefels is suitable to visit all year through. Our lovely village is popular amongst the Barcelona native people for the little high-quality restaurants and cocktail lounges. The Best Western Hotel Mediterraneo is the perfect destination to rest and relax. A tourist tax is applied in Catalonia of 1. 21 EUR per person per night.

    « Great place to overnight »

    Castelldefels turned out to be a great beach side town, and this is a nice location. I flew from Tangiers to Barca and stayed one night before my return to the states, and I had a fantastic stay here. It reminds me a lot of the Mission Beach area in San Diego. Long boardwalk with lots to see and do. Many places to stop and have a cervesa or a bite to eat. There was a little construction going on the street but it didn't bother me, no noise at night.

    « Great Hotel; Great Location »

    We just returned home to California after a seven night stay at this hotel. It is difficult to choose a hotel in such an overwhelming place as Barcelona, but after as I chose this hotel by the online descriptions, I was not disappointed. Perfect location if you like being very close to a beautiful beach and coastline; if you like to stroll down the streets and take in the many restaurants, and Catalan culture; if you like being close to a train station to Barcelona or Sitges; if you want to relax away from the busy Barcelona city center. Perfect hotel if you want attention-to-detail and if you want to be assisted by friendly helpful staff. (Ana, Sara, and Julien were especially helpful, and they upgraded us to the "suite" overlooking the beach. And the two staff members at the breakfast buffet were extraordinary.) No hotel is perfect, but Best Western Hotel Mediterraneo comes pretty close.

    « Comfortable, clean, quiet hotel with lovely staff »

    We stayed here with our 7 year old daughter in a comfortable, family room: 31 March - 5 April 2018. The room was ideal with three beds, fridge, safe, roomy wardrobe, modern ensuite bathroom and a balcony with sea view. It was also well equipped with free WiFi and TV (not that we switched it on during our stay!). If you are looking for somewhere quiet, away from the city bustle of Barcelona, with a lovely beach then don't hesitate to stay here. The hotel also has a lovely swimming pool (although not open at the time we stayed) and gym. The train station Platja de Castelldefels is only a 5 minute walk away - regular trains take you into Barcelona in approximately 20 minutes or so and regular trains will also take you in the other direction to Sitges and Vilanova il Geltru in about 20 minutes, so ideally placed. It's best to get a T10 train ticket to zone 1 in Barcelona which is better value, more convenient then buying separate tickets for each journey. You can use it on the land trains and metro for up to 10 journeys (although we managed to squeeze a few extra!). The staff here are wonderful - very friendly, helpful and obviously wanted to help make our stay as comfortable as possible. Here I must mention two members of staff in particular who, on one occasion, went out of their way to help - Alessandra & Tino. Our room was cleaned every day and we had fresh towels each day too. On the day the cleaners changed our bed linen, we came back to the hotel at about 7pm after a long day exploring Barcelona city. On entering our room, our daughter noticed one of her toys was missing from her bed - this was an IKEA white rabbit with a cotton cloth body which she'd had since she was born (Rabbity!). She instantly burst into tears and was beside herself that he was missing. We looked everywhere, pulled the beds out etc but no Rabbity could be found! She came with me down to Reception and I explained to Alessandra what had happened and I suggested he could have been mistakenly rolled up in our bed linen. She immediately spoke to Tino who said he would go through all the buckets of laundry in the basement which were waiting to go to an offsight laundry facility. The shift manager also spoke to us and assured our daughter than they would do everything possible to find Rabbity. Tino did not hesitate and started to look, asking us to give him half an hour. We returned to our room and after about 20 minutes the manager knocked on the door and delivered Rabbity! Tino had gone through all the laundry buckets and found him in the last one. Needless to say, our daughter was delighted. So a huge thank you must go to Tino and Alessandra. That evening we decided to eat in the Restaurant and had an amazing meal. My husband and I ordered Fish from the Grill (thinking it would probably be grilled catch of the day). What a wonderful surprise we had! A delicious platter of a variety of seafood arrived - salmon, hake, octopus, calamares, mussels, clams, langoustines, prawns, cray fish served with charred endive & asparagus. All wonderfully fresh. Our daughter ordered the spaghetti carbonara which was equally delicious. Desserts did not disappoint either - lovely Catalan Creme brulee, lemon sorbet and fresh fruit cake. Talking of food, a wide choice of breakfast options, buffet style were available from 7 am until 11 am every day: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, a variety of cold meats and cheeses, fresh fruit, cereals, breads, sweet danish pastries, cake and toast. Drinks included tea, coffee, various infusions, orange and pineapple juice as well as water. Definitely something for everyone. Would highly recommend and definitely stay again if we ever return to the area. Thank you for making us so welcome at Hotel Mediterraneo.

    « Quiet and away from the maddening crowds »

    My husband and our 2 friends from England stayed at BW Hotel Mediterraneo from Sept 3 - 16th, 2017. What can I say, it was perfect. Not too many rooms 62 I think, banquest rooms, convention rooms, pool, patio, indoor/outdoor dining, gym, Mediterraneo Restaurant at the front of the hotel and a half block from an amazing stretch of beach. A nice surprise was the massive buffet breakfast with hot and cold foods, home made breads and sweets and a selection of coffees/teas. All included in the price of the room. We have stayed in many BW Hotels around the world but were never offered such a wide selection for breakfast. All of the wait staff were always great. The train into Barcelona (Sants Station) was a 5 minute walk away and only 20 minutes into the City. Many restaurants, shopping and grocery stores a short walk away. The hotel staff were really amazing and always ready to help you. Marco at the front desk (during the day) would print out directions on how to get to certain out of town tourist sites and was always very pleasant. All Front Desk staff were always very helpful. The pool and patio offered waiter service :(with the best freshly maid Sangria I have ever had) till closing and the front desk had towels for the pool. The maid staff were great and if you needed extra soap, coffee, etc. there was not hesitation to oblige you. I would be remiss if I did not mention one very special person - Carmelo. He did everything, breakfast service, bar service, dinner and bar service at the Restaurant Mediterraneo (great food too), booked reservations to some tour sites for us, room service, dinner reservations. He is truly the star of the hotel. He was always making sure that the guests needs were met. Very professional and always attentive. The quiet neighbourhood location was a bonus compared to staying in the busy city. Bus es and trains ran frequently - into Barcelona or other destinations, taxis were plentiful too. Castelldefels is a small beachtown with not too many tourist is just the perfect place to stay to relax and enjoy. We can't wait to return next September Best regards Campanita and Ricardo Canada

    « Great hotel , indeed :-) »

    The Hotel is absolutely fantastic . The staff and location of this hotel is fabulous. All people are polite and really nice and helpful. Carmelo and Miquel absolutely fantastic people. all the best from Warsaw to both of you :-) . The location is very close to the beach, which is very good. I am sure I will be back some day to this hotel! Great thanks to all the hotel staff, they work hard so that we, the tourists can rest. Grande mucias gracias para todos Best Western Mediteraneo Hotel :-)

    « More than accomodating »

    The staff and location of this hotel is fabulous. Sarah and Carmello went over and above what it take for a tourist to feel at ease. The locatioin is so close to the beach. So glad I chose this location to stay.

    « Close to beach and friendly staff »

    The hotel is one street back from beach. Reception staff speak and understand English. Area is not touristy therefore most places speak very limited English. All rooms have a balcony but not really a view. Breakfast was average - have had much better. Main issue was milk is not provided in the room with coffee and tea. Had to ask reception staff each day. Would suggest asking for a small jug rather than having to ask each day. All in all, a nice casual and friendly place to take in local atmosphere. Take your own beach towel. There is a small supermarket down the road but staff do not speak English.

    « Great for a short break »

    I stayed for a weekend. The hotel is easily accessible from the aiport and is 5 min walk from the tarinline to Barcelona with a 25 minute ride. The beach is 3 minutes away and shops and restaurants are close by. The staff were very friendly, buffet breakfast adequate and I also enjoyed a good valued set dinner one night. The room itself was basic but fine for a short break and for the price. Overall very decent.

    « Lovely little find ...... »

    We booked a five night break with British Airways. What a fab find this hotel was. Lovely clean room with large balcony over looking the pool. Very clean and air conditioning was perfect. Reception staff were very friendly and knowledgeable helping us with train times and printing tickets etc. The breakfast was amazing, everything we could have wished for, most days we did not need lunch. Train station only 10 minutes walk away for a 30 minutes ride into the centre of Barcelona and 11 minutes to Sitges. Beach was one road away. Lots of very good restaurants within walking distance. A lovely little pool and a couple of days we had it all to ourselves. Will definitely return again. Thank you

    « Great welcome, nice rooms »

    You know when you worry that writing a good review will make the place too popular and spoil it.... I was lucky to pick this hotel as a base for a weeks business. I arrived at 9 in the evening January 2016. The bar and restaurant was closed for the evening, however the reception staff arranged to make a meal and even opened the bar, just for me. the hotel room had a great balcony , was very clean bright and airy. breakfast was buffet style and never a shortage. I was so impressed with the hotel and surrounding area I've decided to return for pleasure this time and will be going back in September 2017.

    « Perfect Short Stop »

    We stayed there as Flight crew for one night. Hotel is nicely situated in the second row to the Beach. The clean Rooms have a decent size,good beds as well high water Pressure in the shower which is sometimes a problem in southern countries. They also provide towels for the pool and as well for the beach. We left early, although the breakfast starts normally at 0700 we were offered the full selction half an hour earlier! Excellent service.

    « Close to the sea »

    Wonderful hotel, exceptional staff and great breakfasts. We enjoy our time in this lovely area by the sea. Boardwalk walks every morning and night. Close to small grocery store, food on the beach and a short walk to the train station.

    « Oh dear. No longer 4 star. »

    I first reviewed this hotel in 2014, giving it a high recommendation. I have had 102 'helpful' clicks for that review. Well things have changed. Upon arrival, parking on the street is difficult. However the hotel charges 15 euros per night which I thought was excessive and asked how the street parking worked. I expected to be told the best places, what the restrictions were and how much I needed to put in the machine. Instead the owner said haughtily 'well you can park on the street if you want, its up to you'. Her attitude was very poor and dismissive. Not a good start. I paid 30 euro for two nights parking. So the rest - no visible maintenance since 2014. Tired carpets. The WiFi in the room was none existent for the two days we stayed, as 4G is poor this was annoying. Remember this is promoted as a business hotel. Bathroom - no extractor and the window won't open, glass door with a 1 inch gap - not for me. Breakfast very basic. The scrambled egg looked awful - when we asked for fresh they just put it on top of the old egg, using the same spoons (not cleaned see picture). If you want a fried egg, you pay 3 euros extra! Remember this is a 4 star hotel charging us 145.00 euros per night inc parking. In the corridor there was a tray of empty glasses.bottles on a radiator for over 24 hours (see picture) Bar was closed each night when we returned around midnight - no drinks. In the room - woken each morning to the sound of an upstairs toilet flushing down a pipe inside the wall 3 feet from your bed - not a nice wake up call. Shower had variable temperature (warm to very hot) probably dependant upon other people using at the same time. Although the balcony is large there are just 2 cheap chairs and a plastic table there. Plenty of room for decent sun lounger. Although I saw the lady owner a number of times over two days, she made no attempt to speak/enquire how things were. All in all extremely disappointing. Certainly no longer 4 star and not worth the money charged.

    « Great place ! »

    Excellent hotel near the beach and restaurants. Hotel service was just the best all things were handled excellently. The best was the breakfast buffet next to the pool. The pool area was quiet and there was also a good sunbathing area. From the airport you can reach the hotel easily by train and from the hotel in Barcelona also by train really easily and quickly. The train station is about 500 meters away and 1 zone T-10 ticket is good for Barcelona journey. The rooms were comfortable and I had a balcony where the sun was shining at 2 o'clock up to sunset. Fortunately, I had calm neighbors as the toilet visits, the shower and also the speech was heard a rather tough neighbor from the room. I had early departure in the morning at the airport, hotel give me a breakfast picnic and a taxi was just ordered at the right time to drive me to the field. All the good staff and hope to see you, Thanks to all of you !

    « Great base hotel for trips into Barcelona »

    Stayed at this property for our first three nights and last night in Spain. This was an ideal location for us. Rented a car from the airport ( 15 minute drive ) then parked car in hotel garage. 15 euro.( Needed car for future travels). From the hotel, it was a 5 to 10 minute walk to the train station. The train takes you right into Barcelona and you can return by train up to 10 or 11pm. The hotel front office staff was great, helping us with all of our questions about the area and Barcelona. The beach on the Mediterranean with a boardwalk is directly across the street. ( Great morning walk!) We were there in the off season, so very few people were around which was just what we were looking for. We did have breakfast included with our room and the food on the breakfast buffet had a good selection and was fine.The breakfast staff was attentive and friendly. We did not eat any other meals at the hotel. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to the beach or into Barcelona!

    « Lovely hotel , rubbish food »

    Being a seasoned traveler stopping at Best Western hotels on numerous occasions. The location of the Hotel was brilliant with close easy access to the beach. Close links to public transport. The room 205 was fantastic a real treat, everything we could have asked for. We dined in the hotel on our first night and what a mistake!!, after 15 mins we was presented with a menu ( there was only us there )we ordered pizza in the main restaurant @ €17.50 for the two of us ( in my opinion it was worth nothing !! , it was dry and very unappetising for restaurant food ), we was asked the obligatory question how's the pizza with a response from me not very good !!. It was a shame to spoil what started off promising. Wont be having our evening meal here tomorrow night. Hope the breakfast is a better experience in the morning.

    « Nice hotel for the beach »

    We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights B & B. Location for the beach is good with only a 5 minute walk. Not such a good location if you want to spend a lot of time in the centre of Barcelona as it is a 60 minute bus ride or a shorter train ride but not as frequent as the buses. Fare is only 2.15 euro each way so not expensive. Taxi from airport will cost you 30 euro each way. Hotel is clean and comfortable and the staff are very pleasant. The room we had was a reasonable size for the money. There was a good selection at breakfast but limited hot food, only bacon, sausage and scrambled egg. If you wanted fried egg it would cost you extra. Was not too impressed with the local restuarants, was not made to feel very welcome. One place called CHI CHI told us they had stopped serving but locals were still going in an hour later. All in all a good stay and would recommend for a local stay

    « A pleasant hotel »

    A very pleasant hotel with easy reach of the airport on the coast south of Barcelona. The area seemed very quiet though my visit was in the off season so likely to be busier in the holiday period. Would visit again

    « Graet Location by the Beach »

    Was in Barcelona to attend an Expo . Good Convenient location across the beach with excellent public transportation , close to train station . Lot of restaurants nearby open quite late at night . Overall a good experience

    « Great location, great hotel »

    We have stayed at the Mediterraneo many times for the past 10 years. Each and every time, we have experienced great hospitality, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and cosy restaurant with good food. We have had different rooms, all of them of good size, very clean and well equipped, with balcony and modern bathroom. We look forward to returning to the Mediterraneo next year.

    « Great Hotel and Great Time »

    We stayed here for 3 nights prior to leaving on a cruise. The rooms are just the right size and very clean. The staff was outstanding. The lobby staff was very helpful and Carmelo especially was helpful and fun. It seems like he is there 24 hours a day. The breakfast, which was included, was always very good, with a lot of variety. The location is just across the road from the beach, and just down the street from the train to Barcelona. Dinners were good and reasonably priced.

    « rain rain go away »

    Great as not so great, was that we had to go out into the rain, to get the building where our rooms were. The breakfast was really good, and the view of the Mediterranean, right across the street was beautiful. Bus service into the city was also close by, and easy to access

    « Great hotel, great location »

    We stayed here 2 weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is in a fabulous location, 1 min from the beach, 5 mins from the train station and close to some good restaurants and supermarkets. The staff are helpful, attentive and professional (in a friendly way!). Rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast buffet is excellent.

    « Lovely hotel »

    This was on of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. The staff are very helpful and speak good English. We aske for a quiet room and got one, the rooms were very clean and in good condition. They were also very dark at night which aids a good nights sleep. The room facilities included a large bathroom with a powerful shower, kettle, large TV (which we didn't use) with mostly news channels. There was also a mini bar and the largest bed we have ever slept, even so there was still plenty of room. The balcony was large with a view of the pool area and a local castle ruin. The WIFI was a bit weak at the back of the hotel so they lent me a cable that plugged directly into the network so problem solved. The breakfast was plentiful and served every morning until 11.00am, it was mostly continental but there was bacon/ sausage/ egg. We didn't use the hotel bar and restaurant so can't comment. Locally there were loads of bars and good restaurants which do not get going until after 9:00pm. The beach was 10o metres away, and was mile upon mile of clean golden sand with a back drop of hills. There were also beach bars every few 100 metres. The local train station was 10 minutes walk away, tickets to Barcelona were 5 Euros return, get the 10 trip ticket which can be used on the metro and bus. Trains run every 30 minutes. If you are considering using this hotel don't hesitate just book it

    « Excellent, hospitable hotel »

    We spent a pleasant week at this well-run 4* best western hotel. The staff were very friendly and courteous and helpful in every way. The room was very modern and clean and we felt very much at home after a short time. The food was also very good as was the pool. The attractive, clean beach is more or less across the road as is also a food supermarket. The trip to Barcelona by L94 bus takes about 40 minutes - please note that you must have the exact 2.15€ fare otherwise you can leave the bus! An information sheet about the buses is available at reception. The taxi ride to the Barcelona Airport is ca. 30€ but ask the price first!

    « Great location and nice room! »

    We had a lovely stay at this hotel. 8 nights and the room was well equipped and comfortable. Bathroom was clean and bright.After a slight mix up about breakfast we ended up having breakfast at the hotel, a nice variety of bread, cereal, fruit etc and usually ate by the poolside. Most days we took the train into Barcelona, went sightseeing and had lunch then we came back mid afternoon ready for a nice swim in the sea opposite the hotel. Perfect for us! Our only complaint was that the last 2 nights guests on the floor above sat out talking loudly on the balcony until 1a.m. or so. We did inform the front desk.

    « Disappointed »

    First opinion was nice hotel, very polite friendly staff. Nice quiet outside pool . However once allocated our room and unpacked we could hear yapping dogs. We were unaware that pets were allowed, on further recognition as we noted another dog further along our hotel corridor, I would describe the section we were allocated as the dog section as not only did it smell of dog , it was noisy and balconys even though large were not at all welcoming or private, these ones are not shown in any hotel photo images. The hotel rooms could do with updating and they are very small. We checked out after one night. If you like sharing holidays with animals then on a positive note, staff excellent . Nice quiet pool area.

    « Nice hotel in a quiet location! »

    Was looking for a hotel near the beach not too far from Barcelona! this hotel seem to tick most boxes, it was clean,friendly and the breakfast was ok! However the restaurant is very pricey! and the pizza we ordered was not very nice, it felt like it was taken out of the freezer and cooked in the oven, very dry and had no real toppings! There are plenty of restaurants and bars located locally within walking distance which was a nice surprise, you can get the train, which is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel takes you to Sands and then take a tour bus which is an 'on and off' ride to Barcelona.

    « Always Amazing! »

    Been staying here on both business and pleasure for last few years. Ana and the team are amazing and really take a genuine interest in you as people and not just paying customers. Cannot recommend highly enough!! Rooms are clean and breakfast is varied with opportunity to sit by the pool and eat at your own pace...

    « Confortable stay »

    We stayed there for a four nights stay. The room was spacious, clean and confortable with all the amenities you would expect in a 4 star place. The rest of the hotel is also very nice and clean. The breakfast had a good selection of products and well presented, it was also possible to sit outside and eat by the pool. We arrived at 11pm on our first night after a very long journey but were not able to eat there as they were closing the restaurant. On the second night, the pool was closing early because of a wedding and the restaurant was moved to the bar for residents. The waiting staff were doing their best to serve customers as quickly as possible but having to trek to the other side of the building to reach the kitchen was not easy. The next night, we expected to be seating in the restaurant but dinner was served again in the bar. This was ok but did get busy and cramped. We had half-board and had to chose from two 3 course meals every night. The food wasn't exceptional but ok and well presented. The restaurant/bar staff were very friendly, helpful and pleasant. The reception staff however, did answer our questions but didn't go out of their way to be helpful. The hotel is situated in Castelldefels Plaja and can easily reached by train from Barcelona airport but it's important to get off at the "Plaja" stop as it's only 5 minutes from the hotel. This part of Castelldefels is very quiet as it is a residential area, there are not many tourists and mainly locals going to the beach. You will find a few bars and restaurants along the main road but don't go there if you like partying. The beach is just across the road and is nice and clean. I would go there again

    « Great hotel »

    Such a pleasant hotel, very helpful friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble. It's in a great location for the beach, train station and restaurants. Our room was a little tired but kept clean and tidy and we didn't spend much time in it. The breakfast was always fresh and plenty to choose from, and the couple of meals we had from the resturant were good.

    « Relaxing holidays »

    The hotel has built in front of the beach . The restaurant is not so good, my opinion is worth and also the prices are very high and not expensive . The old woman owner is not a kind and nice person and she uses rude manners with the guests. Surely I don't suggest is this hotel to my friends.

    « Discrete 4*Service near Barcelona »

    Friendly, helpful and efficient service in spotlessly clean hotel, a few meters from long sandy Mediterranean beach. Perfect for our family's holiday. Easy access to Barcelona by train and not far from the airport.

    « Great stay »

    Must say , we had a pleasant stay here. In a way, it felt like going back 20 years in time ... Its a family owned hotel, dont expect fancy features or design rooms, just value for money. Rooms are pleasant, bit basic ( but must admit that I have high expectations) can be warm as aico didn't work very well. Clean, safe in room, coffee/tea fridge. Furniture bit outdated. But once more, value for money. Booked half board, plenty of choice for breakfast ( self service) with half board, you can choice luch or dinner from "menu del dia" . Homecooking, no fancy dishes but surprisingly VERY good, ( great fish soup/ pulpo/fish/zarzuela/ calamares) As spanish food is not really "light" , great beach , beachwalk on block from hotel, exellent for running to burn the calories. We would definitely go back to this hotel . Castelldeffels playa is nice place to stay, laid back , very local, many good restaurants visited by locals. ( avoid , restaurant " la casa gallega" , paseo maritimo, unfriendly staff, overpriced, many bad reviews on tripadvisor, wich we discovered afterwards unfortunately....) Castelldefels, to sitges 10min by train ( be aware, 2 stations in castelldefels! , not every trains stops at castelldefels playa, other station far from hotel.) Barcelona, by bus ( nr94)(fast service/ 45min to plza cataluna via plza espana) buy T10, 1 zone ticket in advance (station or tabac shop) good for 10 viajes. ( 9.95€) or by train to barcelona Sants. Great stay in a nice hotel.

    « Not up to par »

    This in my opinion was not 4* hotel. When I arrived at my hotel all the hotel room doors and balcony doors were wide open I guess this is what the cleaners do after cleaning. So I ended up just walking straight into my room which freaked me out a bit. I had to check there was no one hiding in there (call me paranoid). The hotel was really quiet only one other couple at dinner . No buffet . I had to order from a menu with limited choices. My friend wanted to use the sauna which was closed which is the reason she booked. At breakfast the choices were again limited . I wasn't greeted and shown to a table just had to sit wherever . Finally I saw a waitress and asked for some tea . I was promptly given a demonstration of how to switch the kettle on and make it myself . In my room the previous occupants had left a half opened can in the cupboard which housecleaning did not remove . I had brought some fruits up from dinner to my room . I guess house cleaning didn't take kindly to this as they cleaned the room and left the plate there . On a positive the staff are friendly and very helpful . Location is walking distance to the beach and train station. 15 mins from airport . Just beware of those taxi drivers they will rip you off . I was quoted €40 to my hotel which I refused and went to another taxi which quoted €20-€23 . I paid €26 which was fine . On departure the hotel called a taxi for me which got me to the airport in 10 mins but charged €32. Overall I would not stay here again but that's just me

    « Excellent,excellent and excellent. »

    Excellent hotel, truly ideal for all types of travellers. Breakfast fresh and excellent choice. Staff friendly, professional and attentive. Great location for the beach. Catch a train to Barcelona city only 30 mins away for 4.50 euros return. Fantastic restaurants near by although the food at the hotel is very good. Try Tibu Ron outstanding food and reasonable price.

    « An excellent Hotel in a good location »

    This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and it meets our requirements very well. 15 minuets from the airport close to the beach and there are plenty of good restaurants within easy walking distance. Our room was on the second floor south facing and very comfortable wit a reasonable view. Depending on wind direction the hotel is on the flight path for aircraft landing at Barcelona airport although the noise is minimal. The breakfast buffet is extensive and very good quality. the hotel restaurant, which we used for the first time this visit, was also excellent with an extensive and good quality menu and the service was top class!!

    « Noisy & Pedantic staff »

    Location excellent just a two minute walk from the beach. Rooms spotless and entrance pleasant with wild birds and a jungle type setting with plants/flowers everywhere. The price wasn't cheap. €90 off season per night is expensive. Car parking is non existent and hidden underground. If you visit between Oct 1-May 1 the street parking is free so just park up and leave it nearby. There is absolutely NO soundproofing of the rooms. You can hear everything next door and I mean everything. It's not a bad place just a bit mediocre really.

    « Good location if you want to spend time on the beach. »

    There was no place to park near this hotel in order to check in and so I parked illegally outside the front door and went to the front desk. They informed me that I could park in the underground garage for an extra fee, which I did because every parking space in town was taken. If the hotel had provided a tip about the parking ahead of time it would have been very helpful, as I circled the block for half an hour. I've stayed in a lot of Best Western Hotels in Europe and they usually have a much higher standard than the ones in the U.S. This one was not that great, but it was still better than ones I've stayed at in America. The staff were very attentive and friendly. I was the only one in the dining room for lunch and thus had the undivided attention of the waiter - maybe a little more attention than I needed but still better than not getting any service. The room was clean but wifi was, as usual, weak. Drive around the hotel until you see the driveway that goes under the building. The camera allows the staff to see who wants entrance and they will open the door if you are staying there.

    « So comfortable »

    Stayed here for a few nights while working in the area. Staff were great and looked after us very well. We needed early dinners in the evening and they were very obliging. Food was great didn't want to eat anywhere else. Made our visit to the area very successful.

    « Best Western, Best Service »

    Stayed here this week while working locally. We could not have wished for better service on our return each evening. As we were setting off early the restaurant were most helpful in arranging meals as soon as they opened. The food is excellent with a number of tasty fish dishes as well good meat and veggie dishes. Can definitely recommend The Gambas and the paella. Will definitely be returning even if it is to just to have a meal.

    « charming and welcoming »

    I chose this as an alternative to overnighting in the city or right by the airport where I had flights in and out of Barcelona. I was delighted with this informal and comfortable hotel which is well positioned for the sea, the station and the airport and yet is quietly placed a few streets away from busy activity. The breakfast was excellent and I had my supper in the bar the night before which was also enjoyable. Lovely staff and lovely hotel. Warmly recommended.

    « 80's style »

    stayed at this BW for 2 nights, and choose it because I have a rewards card. You see, sometimes it works for the hotelchains to issue membershipcards and points. I regret choosing this hotel in Castelldefels, as I stayed at another hotel there before, which was booked by somebody else for me. Anyway, the stay here was not uncomfortable or something. It was ok, no complaints but the other was better. Here, the bed was good, room ok, breakfast super, staff friendly. During winter it is quiet of course. I wanted to use the sauna, but had to book that in advance as it would take 3 hours to heat up.

    « Great place »

    Fabulous hotel position, fabulous staff friendly and the restaurant well worth just staying in for. Perfect for day tripping into central Barcelona, short walk to station then direct line into main Barcelona. Or if you fancy a beach day, just cross the road and a fabulous beach.

    « Beach location with easy access to train to Barcelona »

    This Best Western is quite nice because it is small with only 67 guest rooms. The receptionists are very friendly and welcoming. We were checked in promptly with English speaking agents, Elizabeth and Arnau. They were very helpful with suggestions and directions regarding tours, trains and dining options. We stayed in Room 116. It is a corner unit with a wrap around balcony overlooking the pool. It is the end unit furthest from the main street. The bathroom has all the amenities and is fully stocked with supplies. The bar area is nice with outside seating. The breakfast buffet has a nice variety. This hotel is close to the airport and just a few shorts blocks from the train station to go to Barcelona. It is in a good location directly across from the beach with a many restaurants nearby.

    « Average four star hotel.... Good location »

    This is an average hotel with average rooms and average food. They offer room service, the staff are very helpful, the rooms are clean and the maids even waited until the afternoon for our daughter to wake up from her afternoon nap. The hotel is no thrills as it doesn't offer a great deal and variety in entertainment, unlike other best westerns. Location is on the main strip of town where you will find many good restaurants and a 1 minute walk to the beach opposite...

    « Thoroughly enjoyable stay »

    We stayed here in September for a week. Friendly staff, especially in the restaurant, good breakfast, pleasant room, near the beach and good restaurants, Easy walking distance to the station and easy access (such cheap fares) to Barcelona for sightseeing. We will definitely go back.


    value for money and near sands and sea. Super bar and hotel position near restaurants and bars. perfect for families and super pool and I cannot recommend highly enough for business or pleasure. ideal for Barcelona 20 minutes away on train. recommend to all.

    « Convenient for the airport »

    Booked in for one night on way to the airport at Barcelona (13 mins drive). Inexpensive and comfortable. The room was good, with a balcony for those smokers but not so much of a view. Very close to the beach. Best free WiFi in a long time, 30Mb down, 9Mb up and 7ms ping good for gaming. Shower was good but water temperature fluctuated due to not being thermostatically controlled - read, hot, hot, hot, cold, hot etc. Probably better outside of peak time pre-breakfast. Breakfast (included in my deal) was as expected except for the 'hot' food which had gone cold and was brought back out, microwaved and put back into the serving dishes. Too risky for me - therefore fruit/other options were consumed. Staffing out of season might be an issue - overall happy with what I experienced but probably only good for a couple of days - not for a longer duration.

    « Good choice but needs some attention to cleanliness »

    Good sized, air conditioned room which was generally clean but why do some hotels put a label on the toilet saying it has been sanitised when it has not been properly cleaned? Generally a good hotel, but small points like tis let it down.

    « Nice hotel.....but! »

    We just spent seven nights at this hotel . The hotel is very nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was expensive but very good. Breakfast cost 13 euros with a good variety of food available. Although expensive, the convenience of eating at the hotel was a determining factor. The choices to eat outside were very limited. The lunch and dinner options in town were complicated by the fact that were served much later than what we are used to in the US. Dinner was not available until 8:30 pm. Lunches began at 2:00 pm. As others have reported, the train is a 5-6 block walk and takes about 30 minutes to reach Barcelona. Following the Hotel's written flyer, we took the train to Passeig de Gracia and walked about 4 blocks to Placa de Catalunya the main Placa in Barcelona and the starting point for most tourist attractions. The return trip via train was on any train labeled "Vilanova". The hotel is a few minutes walk from the beach. Perhaps we were late in the season, but the beach chairs were limited and expensive. A chair in the shade cost 15 euros as best we could tell ( we were only interested in a few hours ). There was little to do in the evening.The hotel staff was very helpful and the maid service was as good as we have ever experienced. The problem with the hotel was with the bathroom! It was very clean and attractive. It had a glass counter top with a glass bowl sink. The tub/shower had a glass partial wall that was about 3 foot long and swiveled moved back and forth over the tub.While very stylish, it was difficult to use the sink without spraying water all over the countertop and the tub/shower was impossible to use without flooding the bathroom floor. The tub was designed for bathing, not showering, and it was very unstable when you were standing. Showering became an unpleasant and dangerous experience, particularily for anyone with balance issues. The tub was deeper than what we were used to and hard to enter and exit especially with the wet floors. Next time we will stay in Barcelona rather than here simply because we found nothing to do in town once we returned from touring.

    « my stay in 2009 »

    Nice hotel, nice breakfast , lunch, ate in their city or in Barcelona , about one and 15 minutes from my hotel to famous shopping street . Nice pool area. Get room with balcony , facing ocean ,though you don't see ocean . Block from beach. If I went back, would stay here.

    « Great find »

    Often travel on business to this area and normally stay in Gava. This time the usual hotel was full so selected this hotel instead. I arrived around 8 pm and part of the hotel was unlit. I checked in and was escorted to my room in another building....the corridor towards my room was in darkness and wondered what type of hotel I had chosen! In the morning everything seemed a lot better but my room didn't have a balcony so as I went to breakfast I checked if there was s room with s balcony available and there was. The reception staff told me to pack my case and leave it in the room and they would move me while out at work. When I came back I had s room with a balcony towards the front hotel! Wonderful!! I enjoyed my breakfast over looking the pool and as the hotel was quite small it was an enjoyable experience with a good selection of good! All the staff were very friendly and the hotel was very clean. Just across the road was the beach and a supermarket less than 100 yards away. Will definitely be booking into this hotel the next time I am in the area. Thank you to everyone at the hotel for making my stay so pleasant.

    « Great little find »

    Had a lovely 5 night break, lovely room with a balcony. Room was lovely, asked for a kettle and this was not a problem. Very attentive staff. You'd breakfast included in the price. I especially found the evening staff in the restaurant very friendly. The pool was great and no problem getting a sunned, beach was a 2 minute walk I would not hesitate to recommend
