You're in the very heart of Pas at the Catalunya but still less than 50m to the slopes. The choice of bars, restaurants, cafés and nightlife outside the front door is excellent so if you like a bit of après and love the buzz of this lively resort, you're in the right place.
The hotel has been refurbished to give a more modern feel. Natural tones with splashes of vibrant colour give off a fun and laid-back feel. Being so central, the views from the bedrooms and public areas are perfect if you fancy a bit if people watching.
For facilities in the hotel, you have a 24-hour reception, free Wi-Fi throughout and a restaurant for your breakfast and evening meals.
Couples and groups alike will love this place as the twin and triple rooms are comfortable with ensuite facilities. Plus the fact that everything Pas has to offer will suit all budgets and tastes.

As Pas de la Casa is a coach-free resort, on arrival and departure day customers will need to walk from the coach park to the hotel (max. 10 minutes away). We offer a free luggage drop service where we'll deliver luggage to/from the hotel up to around one hour after arrival, and an hour before departure pick up time.
Legendary is the word to describe 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.
