Never met a more miserable hotelier. Stayed a few times for the Benicassim festival. Yes it's central, but it's very basic. The cost of a room is ridiculous, because it's the festival a normal £30 room is £130!!! It's no more than a 2 star. The owner is totally ignorant. She barely says hello, and in fact called the police on us last year for sitting in the restaurant/bar opposite the hotel, 1pm, listening to music on a small speaker from our phone. We are not kids and the music was not loud!!!! She could have simply approached us and asked us to turn it down and we would have happily agreed. Instead we had 3 police cars turn up to tell us to turn it down!! Totally uncalled for. One of the group (5 of us!!!) asked her why she had the need to call police, she said she has same problem with hotel calling police on her for the same things!! Very, very unprofessional. Plus, the hotel insists you book 7 nights accommodation, yet the festival is only 4 nights, again a big con that has only come about over recent years. The extra nights you have to spend there are wasted as it's a ghost town pre/post festival. The town used to do so much for the festival in years gone by, such as setting up bands in the street giving a real welcome to all the visitors and such a great atmosphere, yet now they do nothing. So much so, we have decided to go find pastures new, this year we are heading to Paris for Lollapolluza, better line up, same weather, easier to get to and cheaper rooms!!! Cost us half the price. Its such a shame, we really enjoyed staying at this hotel a number of years ago, but with the managers attitude (and high prices) this has really put us off. (Unfortunately it seems many of the hotels in the town seem to be operating a similar method of high prices and a 7 night minimum, but maybe easier to swallow with a swimming pool and happy and inviting management!).
My 2 children and I needed a hotel for 1 night as we were passing through Benicassim. This hotel was very basic but clean and comfortable. The room was a little bit of a squeeze with 3 beds in there but as it was just a short overnight stay it was ok for our needs and good value. My only one negative was I felt a bit mislead regarding the parking. I selected hotels with parking in the search field and the listing for this hotel stated "free parking". However when we got to the hotel I had to enquire at reception as to where the parking was. She showed me on a map how to drive to where there was parking, which was actually just a free public car park and a bit of a walk from the hotel when you have luggage and 2 kids.
The hotel is very central, in the heart of the town, 10 minutes to the beach and 15 to the festival (FIB) campsite on foot. The rooms are not spacious but are reasonable with ample bathroom space. The rooms are air conditioned and spotless also. However the safety deposit box did not work in my room. Aside from that the price is very reasonable for what you get.
I ended up here during this year’s Benicassim Festival, we had been on the VillaCamp campsite but we'd come straight from Ibiza and had some kind of food poisoning lurgy. After my friend discovered me asleep in a bush on the campsite (It was the coolest place i could find!) we knew we had to get a hotel, so my mum in England managed to book us in the last room here for 6 nights. I'll try and review it unbiased and not in the amazing light i saw it in after the hell of spending a while being filthy, hot and sick in some fine shrubbery. Because believe me, it was like coming into the peak of luxury! We got a smoking room, which was good, we are smokers. The room itself was a bit tiny, but itself and the bathroom were spotlessly clean. The air con worked well although it broke once, the receptionist came up and fixed it immediately. My only suggestion is that the guest should have the remote to control the temperature, you couldn’t turn it down any lower than it was set and really i'd have liked it a bit cooler. Cannot fault this hotel at all, it's basic but perfectly good. The staff were absolutely amazing! One night i'd been mugged, another night I’d had my purse with all my money stolen, leaving me quite literally with nothing and they were enormously sympathetic, one of the girls on reception even offered to give me and my friend 20 euro from her own money so we could get some food and water, obviously we didn't accept, but we found that kindness hugely touching! As all of our clothes were filthy (we were literally down to our last clean pair of knickers and Desperados t-shirts we'd blagged from one of the bars) we enquired about a local laundrette, instead they offered to clean our clothes for us in the staff washing machine and dry them, even though the hotel doesn't offer a laundry service and they only charged 10 euro, for 2 suitcases full of clothes. They have shutters on the windows, which was great to keep out the sunlight enabling us to sleep all day during the festival. My only complaint it that some kind of accordion band used to play outside the hotel and wake us up, but they can’t help that. Not far from the beach or supermarket and plenty of restaurants around, one just a few doors down from the hotel on the main street, Gambrinus was amazing. We ate there 4 nights out of the 6. Delicious excellently priced Tapas and great yet cheap white wine, you really couldn’t beat it, plus one of the waiters was enormously attractive. One night when all the cash machines had gone down in the town and we couldn’t get any cash out to go up to the festival we asked them to do cash back, they said they didn’t normally do it however they would make an exception. Gambrinus also own an Irish bar further up the main street called ‘Dougels’ or something like that, again which was excellent. They played indie music and the drinks were cheap. Would defiantly check in here again if i can’t hack the campsite.
If your heading to Benicasm for the Music Festival this is the place to go. Air conditioned rooms, hot and cold water, clean towels and a courtesy disposable razor is what you need if your staying a few extra days after the festivities to wind town before heading home like me and my five mates did. After the baking sun in the Spanish desert, dehydrated and hungover this is the perfect place to scrub up and get a proper sleep. Rooms where clean, access to a fire escape for the smokers, safes in every room. Also the staff stay on reception 24 hours at peak times which is super handy for night owls. The hotel is located just of the main road and half way between the main FIB area and Lydl (essential buying) the hotel is surround by places to eat and just across the road is the local fast food chain "Pinguins" if you want to grab a quick portable bite. Also the only night clubs in town are 2 mins away. Although Its a ten/fifthteen min walk to the beach, it's virtually a straight line all the way. No mazes and asking locals for directions. Word to the wise, do not mess about, the townsfolk vanish during the main festival times but after that know that it's their town. Respect that. Try not to party to hard
Estuve con mi familia el finde semana pasado por que queríamos ir al acuarama. Es verdad que al reservar con cuatro días de antelación no encontré otro hotel para una noche. Para empezar yo compartiendo mi experiencia no me parece que sea hotel, se asemeja más a un hostal. Hacen publicidad engañosa en cuanto al parquig que dicen tener y no es del hotel es del ayuntamiento y suele estar lleno en agosto. No se puede dormir por las noches y no solo por los bares que están situados abajo, sino porque en recepción no hay nadie que se encargue de que las personas que entren a altas horas de la madrugada y posiblemente con alguna copa de más no monten escándalo. Lo mejor fue el acuarama, lo pasamos tan bien el sábado que el domingo volvimos. Esta claro que al año que viene volvemos pero eso si al hotel Canada nunca más.
Estuvimos en familia un fin de semana, la intención era tener de un sitio céntrico y limpio para dormir y acertamos 100x100. No es un hotel para disfrutar de él, pero si la intención es visitar Benicassim y estar en en centro del ambiente, sin duda es el hotel perfecto. La amabilidad y atención en recepción es excepcional. Tuvimos un pequeño accidente en la habitación y nos atendieron genial. Volvería sin duda.
Estuve alojado tres días por trabajo y destacaría la limpieza del hotel. Es un lugar bien ubicado con mobiliario es básico y personal atento. Coincido con otros comentarios que se escuchan, muchísimo, los ruidos del exterior y mejoraría la señal de Wi-Fi que, en ocasiones, brilla por su ausencia.
Nos alojamos una noche. Está muy bien situado, en una calle céntrica y a 10min a pie de la playa. La chica de recepción muy amable, nos explicó la zona y dónde comer. El hotel modesto pero limpio. Estábamos en la 2planta y no se oía ruido. La única pega que el aire no va por la noche y hacía mucha calor.
A pesar de estar en la calle mas concurrida de Benicasim, con unos buenos tapones y cerrando todo bien hemos podido dormir sin problema. Está en pleno corazón de la ciudad, a 15 mnts andando de la playa por lo que no hay que coger el coche para nada. Muy amables y sobretodo muy limpio! es lo principal para nosotros, ademas del aire acondicionado. Muy recomendado porque nos dejaron quedarnos dos horas mas después del check out y así pudimos disfrutar el ultimo día de la playa por la mañana. Calidad precio muy bien.
