Hotel Bremon is located in a 19th century building in one of the pedestrian streets of the old town of Cardona. Before its restoration as a hotel, it was the former school run by Carmelite nuns. The original mosaic-tiled floor remains as a feature of the reception. With amply-dimensioned rooms and generous windows, there is a ambience of light and freshness that is set off by the subtle colour-schemes. At the top of the building, a big lounge with a fireplace and terrace looks out on views of the castle.
There are nineteen bedrooms in all, including two Superior Doubles and a Suite. Each one is tastefully decorated and equipped with comforts such as dressing gowns and slippers and a choice of pillows, as well as the usual facilities like telephone, television and internet connection. One complete floor is designated as non-smoking.
Although Cardona is visited mostly for its history, an excellent base for touring the Romanesque sites and ruins all around, the enduring appeal of the Spanish climate is not ignored at Hotel Bremon. Especially in summer, the pleasing sundeck is an ideal spot to relax for a couple of hours, or maybe to take an aperitif before dinner.
Cardona and its surroundings have a rich cultural and natural legacy, mostly founded on the long history of salt-mining. The wealth that salt has brought to the area over the centuries results in many fine historic buildings such as the castle and the church of San Vicente. The salt also offers other natural and industrial sites of tourist interest: the salt mountain, the old mines and the salt museum.
Cardona is not so well-known by the average tourist, so this is your opportunity to go one better than everyone else. There is mediaeval and eclesiastical history, industrial archaeology, and you can tour it all from this very comfortable base set right in the heart of the old town of Cardona.
Les Monges restaurant serves breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The menus aim to show off the best of Catalan cuisine, combining traditional recipes and local produce with touches of modern international flair. The room is decorated with photographs showing the hotel's previous life as a school.

Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|Simply a small and excellent hotel. We stayed for three days out of season, had the suite with two extra beds for the children. Everything is well kept, nice and clean. Good breakfast with a reasonable selection of cold cuts, pastry, youghurts, fruit etc. Also the restaurant was very nice with a new menu every evening. In our opinion, the restaurant was way above what is offered at the more expensive restaurant at the nearby Parador (in the beautiful castle at the top of the hill). Can only recommend Hotel Bremon.|
|We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Bremon, in Cardona, Catalunya.|
The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming, and anything they did for us was done with a smile.
Our room initially was a little small, but we chose to upgrade to a superior room for only Euro 25 and this room was lovely, light and quite spacious.
The food in the evening was very good, I would advise to book in advance, especially in high season.
We would also recommend lunch or dinner at the Parador (castle on the hill).
Walking around the streets of Cardona you really got a feel for what life is like for the locals.
