Hotel El Castell
Reviewed 9 October 2016

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, it is very peaceful, rooms are acceptable - they will apparently all be upgraded and redecorated this winter as well. WiFi does not work too well, but it is free. Breakfast is fine, eggs and bacon, but the toaster definitely needs replacing, as it takes far too long. Rooms are good and clean, especially if you as for a terrace, which has own private outdoor seating. Staff are friendly, and speak a bit of English as well. All in all, a good quiet location away from the bustle of Barcelona, but within easy reach by Metro.

Room Tip: Terrace rooms are very good

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 ! The staff was helpful but it;s need renovation. Last night wasn't possible to sleep at all. Not only because the A/C wasn't working but there was also two wedding parties. Noise and music till 6 AM.Outdoor pool needs to cleaned too. I wouldn't recommend this place. I am not picky and usually don't complain but this time it's impossible to leave without comments. Don't go there !

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 was not working in our room which led to a grumpy teenager but they're grumpy anyway!

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 walk to centre where you can get buses + trains to Barcelona central and Montserrat. Was blown away by Montserrat, if you're not bothered by heights, it's a must do!

Room Tip: We had the room with a terrace, lovely to sit out at night.

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 of Barcelona. Would stay again if I needed accommodations for a late arrival, layover or early morning flight.

Room Tip: For quiet, ask for a room away from the pool and patio.
