A relaxed and very friendly hotel that makes for a good base from which to explore Pas. It's a simple yet comfortable place to stay, and convenient too as it sits at the foot of the village near the shopping area and resort leisure centre with its large indoor pool. It's only 450m from three different lifts and the centre of this very lively resort.
It's easy to unwind here. The hotel bar has a really nice vibe after the lifts close, perfect for catching up on your day's exploits. There's a sauna and hot tub to help ease any aches, and it's free to use too. There's also free Wi-Fi throughout to keep friends and family back home jealous!

About the resort
Legendary is the word to describe the Pas de la Casa. On the mountain you have the Grandvalira as your playground; 210km of wide-open, cruisy slopes with the added bonus of dedicated beginner areas, parks for freestyle and really accessible yet challenging off-piste. And at 2100m the snow is pretty reliable too.
Off the mountain it has the party hard reputation for a reason. The main strip is full of bars all with enthusiastic signs tempting you inside. The range of nightlife is completely varied so it is possible to have an all-nighter or simply a nice relaxed and chilled out evening.
