We stayed for two nights, hotel clean, modern and well located from Plaça de Catalunya (+ - 15 min walk). The reception at the hotel was great, the staff were extremely sympathetic and advise with the delivery of a map the best places to visit. The rooms correspond to 100% the official photos There was a concern so that everything goes well during our stay (on arrival to the room we received a call from reception asking if everything was okay). the hotel is located in a quiet area. In summary form was an excellent choice for a short stay.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ayre Hotel Caspe Barcelona
Really nice hotel
Excellent hotel. Enjoyed our stay. Helpful staff, nice rooms and good location.
Awful. Watch out for "free" internet...
Awful. Badly located, nowhere near Plaza de Catalunya, it took me a lot longer than 15 minutes to walk, and the area has no character or bars/restaurants at all. The staff were rude (one lovely gentleman on reception to the point of offensive) and not at all willing to help with anything. A supposed 4 star hotel, they watched a young girl struggle down stairs with 3 suitcases without even offering to help!
Breakfast a waste of money and room service has about 4 choices of dish.
Internet supposed to be free but BEWARE! If you plug into the wrong socket (there are no explanations as to which socket to use) you may end up with a 150 euro bill like me. The staff of course were completely unwilling to help at all, and in fact were insulting and rude, demanding immediate payment although internet service was suppposed to be free.
All in all definitely one to avoid in my opinion.
Our stay at the Hotel Caspe
The first impressions of the hotel was very modern, trendy and clean and was a great price for what our conformation said which included breakfast.
The room was also excelent, again very clean and was very impressed the bathroom, it had two showers and a bath, the showers were powerfull and soothing.
We went to the hotel restaurant on our first morning, there was very little choice, very little hot food, when i choose to have some hot food, the scrambled eggs were dried up, the sausages were ok, the bacon was smoked, but it was not hot, it just managed to stay luke warm. Thank goodness we did not have evening meal there.
The hotel is 20 minutes walk from the center, but if you like walking it is a nice strole.
After the first morning we went to hotel reception, and double checked if breakfast was included, they told us NO, we got our conformation, the person on the desk took a photocopy, and told us, thats ok.
Everything were fine untill our last day, we stayed 3 days, the hotel insisted we pay 84 Euros for our breakfast, 2 each for 3 days, 14 Euros for each one, ( personally i would not of paid 3 Euros for the breakfast ) the said they called our agent, and its between us and the agent, so we argued the toss, just paid for our film that we had watched and they said they will try to sort it out, when we returned to the hotel we collect our bags, and got a taxi to the airport.
How many people does this hotel rip off using these tactics.
Also the day before we was due to depart we asked reception if we could keep our room untill 6PM, again we was told it was fine, the next day we checked at 2pm then we was told it was 50 Euros to keep the room for the few extra hours, they never told us when we asked the first time.
So to sum up the hotel, the rooms were excelent, the staff the chef, need to be replaced.
A Nightmare Hotel
Where to start... in our 3 week trip to Spain, Hotel Fiesta Caspe stands out as the worst accomodation.
The four nights we were scheduled to be in Barcelona turned out to be the World Finals of
Formula One Car Racing. Hotel rooms were scarce
and those that were available had doubled and even tripled their rates for this week end. It turned out to be a challenge to find comfortable accomodations at a reasonable rate... Scouring the Internet we discovered the Fiesta Caspe.
The hotel is brand new ( 2 months old during our stay in May 2004) and was therefore ( so I thought) offering very reasonable rates for that time period. They are listed as a four star hotel and the photographs looked as if it was a state of the art contemporary decor type of place. I would describe it more as a Holiday Inn with IKEA furniture.
When we arrived the King bed i had requested and
had been told would be available was all of a sudden not available in a non smoking room. Furthermore, I was told that my excellent rate did not guarantee me any kind of specific room. After
moving upstairs into our room which was not new but rather poorly refurbished with "contemporary"
furnishings ( closet doors rattled, the desk wobbled it was more like a college students attempt at furnishing a first apartment-- cheap,highly styled everything! The one thing i liked was that the bathroom had both a tub and stall shower... Needing a little refreshing, I jumped into the shower, only to flood the bathroom and part of the room... ( when I reported this to the front desk, the woman shrugged and said yes, she knew this was a problem, other people had told her....Hello??)
The hotel is not particularly well located but a good
10-15 minutes walk will put you in Catalunya plaza.
Night time was fun there too. Particularly if you enjoy listening to your neighbors....well you get the picture... unfortunately our neighbors were night owls and very energetic...when they finally did settle down we were able to get a much better idea of what all the noise in the hallway was about!!
The breakfast room ( breakfast was expensive 14 euro and not particularly appealing nor lavish) was about as appealing as an institutional cafeteria....
Actually the lobby and common areas all had an institutional feel. Cold and uninviting hotel, with
a staff to match.
Wonderful modern hotel
stayed at fiesta caspe may 2004. Found it to be very modern and very clean. the staff were pleasant and helpful. The only down point was that in brochure it mentioned coffee making facilities in room..there were not any!!! however there are lots of coffee houses/ patisseries nearby..lovely. Well placed hotel for sight seeing and shopping. would stay here again.

... Barcelona. Four hours motoring through the Spanish country-side and we pulled into the beautiful Mediterranean city of Barcelona. A nice drive, but were happy to turn in the car and start our next Rick Steve's tour tomorrow. We had a tapas dinner as we walked along the "Ramblas" (a famous mile+ pedestrian mall cutting through old Barcelona). Sort of like a Champs Élysées for Spanish pedestrians. We ...
One of the main (and many) things to do in Barcelona is to look at the buildings that Antoni Gaudi, a very famous Spanish architect, designed. My family and I have seen almost all of them. This is the entry for the most amazing (personal opinion) building that he designed. A church, called the Sagrada Familia.
Probably Gaudi's most famous design is the Sagrada Familia. A church, ...
... Garcia was also really special. On the second day we embarked on a bike trip which at the beginning seemed like a tourist scam actually turned out to be the best thing ever. We biked around places that we had originally wanted to see anyway and saved on a lot of walking and asking for directions. I especially loved the Paseo a Garcia with its three architecturally famous buildings including Casa Batlló by Gaudi, the almond chocolate house, and St. George’s defeat of ...
