Expert review of Hotel Ubaldo
A classic, family-fun, Mediterranean pension with tremendously good value, clean rooms and friendly staff, on a hilly, cobbled street in the heart of old Cadaqués.
The Cadaqués harbour and main seafront promenade are less than a two-minute walk away. The Dalí House Museum at Port Lligat is about half an hour’s walk away along the coastal path, or about ten minutes away in a car. Figueres with its major Dalí museum is less than an hour away by car or bus.
Simple, clean, good-sized rooms with comfortable beds, TVs, air-conditioning, heating, safes and modern bathrooms. Most of the rooms have small balconies looking out either onto the narrow streets below or out to the mountains behind Cadaqués. The bedspreads and furnishings aren’t the most contemporary but you’re still getting a lot for your euro here. Some of the rooms have baths, some showers, so if you’re particularly keen on one or the other, it’s best to ask when you book your room.
Only the reception area at the entrance and corridors – all clean and simple, with white walls.
The hotel doesn't do breakfast but there are plenty of cafés and restaurants on your doorstep.
The staff are very friendly and speak English. The elderly lady who runs the hotel reminded me of a friend of mine’s granny and is a wonderful character. When I asked about Internet access, she told us at some length exactly what she thought of ‘these young people’ who come on holiday and spend all day on Facebook.
Mostly couples and some families from Europe and America.
Parking is included in the price which is very unusual for Cadaqués hotels. As the hotel is on a small, cobbled street though, it’s best to park elsewhere when you first arrive and find the hotel on foot. They’ll then direct you to the hotel carpark nearby.
