We spent there a couple of nights around Sant Joan for just 61 euro per night. Appartment was clean, fully equipped and we felt pretty comfortable. We had room service, which we really didn't expect. At reception, I was called for my name, not usual at all! On the dark side, we felt disappointed because pool wans't going to be opened until July. As these were warm days, near 35 ºC (95 ºF) air conditioning would have been totally useful. All beds are twins,a bit hard and there's no option for king size. This opinion is written in English, because we're not allowed to do it in Catalan.

Have stayed here two years in a row, and can say I continue to be impressed. Property is very well-maintained and rooms are generally large and comfortable. Small pool onsite as well as location for massage. Restaurant is good as quality of local ingredients is so high and breakfast in other location onsite is perfectly fine. Very good location for local sports complex with much bigger pool, ice rink, gym etc, as well as all of Vielha's restaurants. Great value compared to much more expensive options closer to Baqueira with all the benefits of being in the largest town in the Vall d'Aran.

Arrived in wonderful Vielha for a quick stopover, desk asked for copies of all 3 of our passports , when i asked why i was told its for the police. what next i wonder show your passports in the shops pre purchase I think Not. the wedsite says 9.50 if you want private parking however, they fail to tell you that the locked hotel car park is free needless to say mine was the only car parked in this under ground private park.......... room was nice and comfortable however no proper bed linen for the sofa bed. the breakfast was as bad as it gets , as usual in these places raw bacon and overcooked eggs etc . when i pointed out to the waitress the bacon was uncooked she abruptly told me it WAS COOKED. the quicker these zero service hotels close the better it will be for all looking for value for money. the best part was the coffee, spain has every bit as good coffee as italy etc however this joint had 2 Vending Machines in the breakfast room , the money slot was still on the machine although no charge Yet i wonder............ bread was ex frozen and a wonderful bakery across the street such a shame as i said the room was nice and i guess valiue for money even without the sham for breakfast . Let down once again by rude staff. The hunt continues for a decent refuge in Val De Aran............................

This is a nice place not far from skiing resorts and surrounded by snow-capped mountains. The hotel is easily located in the middle of Vielha but on a quiet street not far away from most shops and restaurants. The rooms of the apartment we rented were right-sized but there was a little problem. They are ill-lit and without much idea of where the lamps should be located; so the sensation we got was that the decorator and the builder didn't work together. Other than that, the apartment was well-equipped and with adjustable heating which made our stay quite pleasant. Another positive aspect is the availability of a pool. Ok, it's not one for competitions but at least is large enough to bathe comfortably. On the other side, the restaurant should improve its variety of offer if hamburguers is not your cup of tea. Another weak point is that reception closes from 1 to 4 pm. So if you want to check in you have to wait till 4pm. As we were in a hurry we didn't use the Spa so I can't judge it.

We stayed her and loved it. Maybe the location deep in the mountains, maybe the super helpful staff, maybe the big generous room? We were ther for the Tour De France and enjoyed the quick and scenic drives to watch the race, but I reckon this place would also be great in winter months. A few things: skip breakfast it is not worth it, they need wifi to the rooms.

Déja dès qu'on arrive, c'est fleuri, genre chalet de montagne, très sympa...l'accueil très courtois et malgré la barrière de la langue ( Français-Espagnol) le personnel fait tout ce qu'il peut pour nous permettre les renseignements essentiels..ensuite découverte de la chambre retenue ( studio pour 2 personnes) c'est pratiquement une suite, grande entrée avec salle de bain super grande et bien équipée ( grande douche, bidet, wc, lavabo avec 2 shampoing et 2 gel douche + petite savonnette) puis entrée côté cuisine avec micro onde, frigo, vaisselle, table et tabouret, puis on entre dans la chambre très grande avec 2 placards très spacieux, bureau + chaise pour écrire, meuble avec tv, un meuble pose valise, 2 petits lits rapprochés mais indépendants, fauteuil...vraiment propre,et tout ça pour 50e la nuit avec la place de parking, que demander de mieux, on reviendra car très satisfait...

Apartamentos bien montados. Una pena que no funcionase nada del pequeño spa que tienen, hubiese sido perfecto. Tuvieron el detalle de cedernos un Parking cerrado para nuestras motos. Muy bien pena lo del spa

Hemos pasado tres dias en este aparthotel yo, mi marido y mis dos hijos de 9 y 13 años. No es la primera vez que quedamos en este hotel. Siempre hemos tenido buena vista desde la habitacion excepto esta vez. Nos han dado una habitacion bastante aislada con una pared delante de la ventana a pesar de que habiamos pedido una con el balcon. Lo bueno de esta habitacion? Por estar aislada no nos molestaba nada: la gente con maletas , las chicas de limpieza... no hemos escuchado nada. Todas habitaciones son iguales del tamaño , la diferencia esta en la vista que tienen. En la misma habitacion se alojan 2,3 o 4 personas. Son bastante oscuras y estan pintadas en colores oscuros. La chica de recepcion turno tarde era muy amable y nos ayudo muchas cosas interesantes sobre Vielha. Lo mas bueno del todo es la piscina. Es genial para ir despues de esquiar. Era sitio favorito de mis hijos. Volver? Si pero solo por tener posibilidad de usar la piscina.

Era la primera vez que estábamos en un apartotel, y ha sido espectacular, ha sobrepasado totalmente las expectativas. Nos hemos alojado en la 302, el dormitorio era amplio y en el salón hemos tenido todo el espacio del mundo para poder jugar y estar a gusto con nuestro hijo de año y medio. Un apartamento muy cómodo donde nos hemos sentido como en casa. La atención tanto telefónica mientras reservábamos como ya en el hotel tanto de Carmen como de sus compañeras ha sido una delicia, son personas totalmente cercanas con las que da gusto hablar. Las vistas al río con el que nos despertábamos todas las mañanas eran espectaculares. Tanto cocina como baño son totalmente funcionales, la climatización ha funcionado perfectamente, y la insonorización de las ventanas es perfecta, una vez cerradas no escuchas nada de la calle. No nos hemos enterado de nada de los vecinos (no se escuchan) y como guinda al pastel dejaron abierta la piscina climatizada una semana más, por lo que no se puede pedir más a un alojamiento. Para acabar de redondear la experiencia, tienen parking al aire libre totalmente gratuito.

Son apartamentos muy completos , cómodos , muy bien mantenidos y amplios.Tiene aparcamiento gratuito y garaje de pago. En el bajo tiene un restaurante bueno con productos de la región. Cerca de la zona de copas. Recomendables tanto para parejas como para amigos.
