COVID-19 ACTIONS

Due to the exceptional situation that the world is experiencing, Eco Hostal Grau had to close its doors last March.

Now more than ever we must think of small and independent companies.

As a family business, we are adapting to all the hygienic and safety measures that the health department requires and we are committed to maintaining the job of all our workers.

They also have families and expenses to attend to. Solidarity is essential.

We want our guest not to worry to visit us because they will be staying in a hotel that will follow all the legal hygienic measures .

The collaboration of all people, especially the one that comes from our clients and hotel staff, will be essential to be able to carried out this situation in the safest possible way.

Be patient and follow the rules.

Who doesn’t feel like traveling again?

See you very soon.
