Casa Camper Hotel Barcelona
Travel Blogs from Barcelona
The landing in Barcelona was bumpy, bumpy, bumpy. Didn't sleep at all on the flight, fortunately only 7 hours long. Black thick clouds fill the skies threatening rain at any minute. I am going to take a nap and then hit the street. Hope the rain holds off.
After a very needed nap, we went walking along the Ramblas. This is a very wide …

Take me to my cabin please
By then it was 6.30-ish so we made our way to the Princess shuttle, hopped on it and back to the ship just before 7pm. The Liberty of the Seas and the NCL Epic had gone so it was just us. Hordes of new passengers and embarked and eaten like there was no tomorrow while ...
... along the side to become a shopping haven for visitors from all over. I got side tracked by a famous market, Mercat La Boqueria,in a side street where I was delighted by the sight of fresh produce from exotic fruit to sheep heads and intestines. I loved also seeing the artists at work at the end of the street. I stopped at the first one and witness how the artist transformed three friends in cartoon characters on paper within 15 minutes. Just enough time to have a chat ...

This is where I met Kirsten, an international uni-cycling competitor who had a bottle of bubbly, a bottle of melon of liquor and giant fiesta pastry to share. And so possibly one of the worst nights of my trip was quickly followed by one of the best, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Camper Hotel Barcelona
I'm a college student and I stayed at Casa Camper this past summer with some of my frineds. And wow, the place is amazing! first of all the design is like no other, and the size of the rooms is amazing , much larger than your large european hotel room. anyways, along with the decor and size of the rooms, the staff at the hotel was amazing. Everyone was so helpful and they alwasy went out of thier way to make our stay there amazing.
I just stayed in Casa Camper in Barcelona for a couple of nights and although I was on the run and pretty much stressed with work, the whole team of Casa Camper made my stay unforgetable and feel like a holiday!!!
Great place for a Barclelona city break
We just back from a stay in this great hotel. We stayed in one the suites which is probably better than the rooms with the living room on the other side of the corridor. Staff were friendly and very helpful. All day buffet thing they do is great. You can come back for a snack in the late afternoon to tide you through to the evening out as most resturants do not get going till gone 9pm.
Nice touch to have free internet.
Best of all - completely non smoking hotel.
Just returned from a weekend stay - superb hotel, great laid back minimalist style. THE best hotel staff I've experienced in a world of fairly extensive (& expensive) travel - truly helpful with recommendations & booking authentic & very fine restaurants, not to mention general service. Highly recommended - go for a suite - saves crossing the corridor & only a touch more expensive, excellent rooftop area to relax.
We stayed in the Casa camper for two nights in early July and found the hotel to provide a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Everything that makes your stay pleasurable is in place including very clean and well furnished rooms with extremely comfortable bed. The snacks available all day in the reception area are of very high quality and adds to the pleasure and impression that you are staying in a hotel where guests are valued. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly (and generally very attractive) with a real interest in their guests. The hotel is just off the Ramblas at the top end towards Placa Catalunya and is very convenient for access to transport and amenities. There may be better Hotels in Barcelona but not for 190 Euro a night. Enjoy.
Just back from a four night stay in the Casa Camper and couldn't fault it. The room (and separate sitting area) was immaculate and the internal view of the "garden" was one of the more interesting we've seen in our travels! The separate, private sitting area was a great idea as it meant the sleepier one in our party could call it a night while the other half could watch telly, drink whisky or just watch the world go by from the hammock next to the balcony.
Best Service Experience
We just spent 3 nights stay at Casa Camper Barcelona and just received the best service experience ever. With their unique concept of being home away from home, the staff really helped us in every single detail and made us feel special. Great idea of having a private lounge where we can eat little snacks all day complimentary. Incredible Beds and don't miss a city tour on your own with one of the bicicles. Perfect Location since everything is walking distance. Great music and amazing breakfast. Small Hotel but BIG experience.

Casa Camper Chic
A great small hotel from the owners of Camper shoes. Quirky arrangement of a seperate lounge across the corridor from your bedroom. This does not really work, however the bed and linen were fantastic, the bathroom area was beautiful, the staff were excellent, and the cafe style free snacks perfect for filling that post alcohol hunger. Situated in the narrow streets of Raval - a once no-go area in Barcelona, that is now home to plenty of good restaurants and bars - also very handy for the centre, being just off La Ramblas.
A different type of hotel that is exceptionally pleasing to stay in. Highly recommended - we have stayed in most of the top hotels in Barcelona and this compares very well.
Just returned from Casa Camper - March 7th 05, didn't have much to go on as it is a fairly new hotel (Jan 05) but we weren't disappointed.
A perfect city hotel
We have just spend a 4 day weekend in this hotel - and in short it has been one of our best hotel experiences.
The hotel has a very nice athmosphere - and the lobby with free snacks (included in the room price) is just one of the nice elements which puts this hotel in the "special" category. And please note: the snacks are not just your ordinary "5-day old snack in vacum-pack" - but real fresh tasty stuff.
All in all: A very pleasant and relaxing experience - in a perfect location with the Rambla just around the corner - but still in a quiet area. What more could one want from a city-hotel.
