Hotel El Castell
Reviewed 6 July 2017

We flew in for a short break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel is only fifteen minutes from El Prat Airport and although there was some room changing requested, the hotel receptionist, Roberto, was excellent and we were transferred to a first floor room with a fine view from the balcony. The weather being warm allowed some longing around the outside pool and swimming to cool down. The hotel food was acceptable although the choice not that varied. Breakfast was normal with hot or cold dishes as you would expect. The hotel is of medium size and appears popular. We certainly would return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floor with a balcony to see over the city.

Stayed here for one night/two days recently. The staff are very friendly and very helpful.

The hotel is about 10 mins drive from the airport and cost approx.20 euros each way.
We had a room overlooking the pool area with a small balcony.The room itself was nice enough with a modern style bathroom,furnished in a simple Spanish style.

The hotel offers a set meal deal in its restaurant every evening. Approx 25 Euros for 3 courses plus a drink.Its really nice food in a lovely setting.

The pool area is large enough to spend time around soaking up the sun.

Even though there were two weddings on at the hotel when we were there it didn't feel crowded at all.

We will definatly return to this hotel in the near future.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view

The hotel may be a bit old, and the rooms pretty basic, but the scenery, ambience and food make it a bit special. It sits at the top of a hill on the site of an old fort, surrounded by trees, so you can hear a distant hum of Barcelona and have wonderful views all around of the hills, Barcelona, the coast... The layout of the hotel is great, with lots of lovely places to sit and take in the scenery. The set menu was quality food, and the bar prices were very reasonable. The pool is great, surrounded by trees, and with those great views. The Metro station is just five minutes away, but watch out for that walk back up the hill: not for the unfit.

The hotel-restaurant El Castell is located at the Sant Boi ajuntamiento. The outdoor spaces are beautiful with an awesome panoramic view. Rooms are clean. It is a renowned place for wedding dinner (sometimes there could be music until late night, but there are notification on this).
The breakfast is excellent.
The restaurant is superb: chef grade dishes with incredibly cheap menu dedicated to hotel guests in a panoramic room.

Great hotel, highlights are: fantastic views, food fantastic, hotel extremely clean with clean towels and beds made. Shower powerful, room had balcony, air con, mini fridge, hairdryer. Rooms cosy and although a little tired in areas adds to the charm and character of the castle and it's history and it is refected in the price. Sant Boi is a charming town, airport is close and train station is 5 min walk away, Barcelona city and attractions are approx 15 mins away by train. Improvements could be faster service at the bar, slight update in some areas, map of Sant Boi and definetely could do with tea/coffee facilities in the room, this would not be a problem if bar was staffed all the time. Great stay altogether.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with family
