Spanish version of a Travel Lodge - Friendly Staff
Posted Mar 2, 2014
It's what you would expect from a low cost hotel. It's 25 - 30km outside of Barcelona so don't expect to get to the city cheaply! It's in a more industrial area so bear this in mind. There is a train station within 5 min walk though.
Staff were excellent, very friendly and helped out where they could. Rooms are again, typical of a low cost hotel. You get a bathroom, table, bed, small wardrobe and some side cabinets. Rooms are probably bigger than a Travel lodge though. Shower is very powerful which is nice after a long day. You also get some complimentary small bottles of shampoo, shower gel and lotion which is rare for a low cost hotel. So you don't need to pack those. Breakfast is (I think) 5 euro's per day if you want it. It's self service and you just eat it at one of the tables in the reception area. Typical selection of cereal, croissants, toast and juice. Randomly Chorizo and cheese as well!
I wouldn't bother with the restaurant next door though. Unlike the hotel, I found the staff quite rude. Although I was trying to speak some Spanish, it was evident they were frustrated with me and rolled their eyes when taking my order! Eat elsewhere, I don't think they like the English in there..
If you're into sports, there is a massive (I'm not exaggerating!) Decathlon store next door for every sports item you could think of. If you're going to so some walking, biking or whatever then you can buy whatever you want from there. The staff in there are great as well.
