Haing just travelled 30 or so miles from a llong weekend with friends in Sitges we were wondering what would be awaiting us in Casa Camper, but there was no rainbow flag welcoming us at the door.
We took one of the suites,of which there is one at the end of each floor of the hotel, allowing for a connection between the lounge and bedroom without having to cross the hall, and a little more space with a sliding door dvider which is crtical to cut out the sound of nightclubbing skateboarders making passable immiations of freight trains through the night on the cobbled streets. Whilst this noise was slightly annoying when relaxing on the excellent roof terrace, this need not concern you at night as the bedrooms are all on the quiet side.
The hotel name comes from it being owned by the Camper fashion footwear brand, which is an odd association, never properly explained, but to be fair we never really asked, and it certainly acts as an excellent flag flier for the trainer makers.
Interestingly there was no cross promotion with the Camper footwear shop a few dozen metres ayay on the corner of the calle, who could probably help out visitors with a helpful location arrrow, which the hotel could reciprocate.
Location just of Las Ramblas is perfect, with a number of good value restaurants in the surrounding alleyways offering real atmosphere and charm away from the never ending human conga that is Las Ramblas.
The 24 hour snacks are a gwelcome treat, although it would be great to see them using larger water bottes or even a purifier instead of the wasteful, and surely costly, airline miniatures which dodn't really quench the thirst generated by the Barcelona sun.
The staff are attentive without being intrusive, and the style is almost impeccably maintained....except for the bath/shower which inexplicably let the side down with poorly maintaied grouting and all the style of a Blackpool B&B. (It did work perfectly offering a genuine amzonian Rainstorm of a shower, however).
Not the cheapest hotel in Barcelona, but I woudl suggest that for all rtound performance it probably offers the best value out there.
