Great little Hotel

My second time here now, basic it is put 5 mins walk off the Ramblas & 10 mins walk from Plaça de Catalunya the bus stopping area makes it an ideal base. Breakfast is very simple but it starts the day. Staff easy going & our room (No 124 this time) was at the front of the building with a bit of a view (not a lot to look at ). Very old world quirky gothic style interior so don't expect brand spanking premier inn style. I like it & would use it again & again simply because of its location. Noticed this time around a lot of noise at night from the bin wagons, did have the large floor to ceiling windows open though.

Fab location

Fab location, within 5 mins walk of La Ramblas, breakfast is adequate, continental, lovely coffee.good wifi connection.only problem is the beds and pillows. Beds are hard and pillow felt as if I was sleeping on a log!!! If I stayed here again I would be tempted to take my own!!! However, you couldn't get a better location for the price. Buses to the airport are within ten mins walk, along with the tourist buses,gothic quarter nearby with good shopping.

Beautiful hotel in great central location!

Just came back from 1 week stay at Meson Castilla. Great old fashioned hotel which was very clean. Stayed in very top last 2 rooms (no other rooms on 6th floor), higher up than most surrounding buildings so good views. There was a roof top garden area which only we used as no other guests were on our floor, excellent views of city from there. Very friendly and helpful staff who can all speak English if needed. Loved all the authentic furnishings/paintings etc. Patio breakfast area was lovely, had breakfast in the sun everyday. We had a triple room with fold down beds these were very comfortable, air con in rooms with television, mini bar, free wi-fi, hair dryer and telephone. I would definitely stay here again if I was going back to Barcelona. The only things I would have liked to have been different would be more breakfast selection.

The best thing about my stay was...

The views we had and the authentic furnishings etc

I'd definitely stay here again

THE HOTEL IS 2 MINS FROM LAS RAMBLAS IN AN AREA POPULATED WITH RECORD & GUITAR SHOPS & SHOE/CLOTHES BOUTIQUES, ALONG WITH LOADS OF SMALL FRIENDLY BARS. MESON CASTILLA'S ROOMS HAVE AIRCON & THE STAFF EXTREMELY HELPFUL. I'D DEFINITELY RETURN.

Fantastic Find!

We have just returned from the Meson Castilla and what a fantastic find! Quirky decor, friendly helpful staff, central location, plentiful breakfast buffet eaten on the patio, quiet spacious quad room (despite being on the front of the hotel), air con, what more can I say? Go on, give it a try - I would reccommend it without hesitation!

short break in the capital

Good location, short walk to La Rambles, Very clean, small but quaint room. retro dining room with lovely little outside patio. A great base to explore the area. HINT... In Barcelonameals are resonable, but check on the price of drinks we paid almost £12 for a large coke !!!

Clean hotel in good location

Comfortable clean adequately sized room. Ample breakfast. Reception staff extremely good and more than helpful by accomodating us for 2 extra nights when we found ourselves in difficulty and checked travel by land for us when our return flight was cancelled (volcanic ash). Very central and convenient for access to transport system and many places of interest. Convenient for bus to and from airport to Catalunya Placa, 2 minutes walk to Las Ramblas and Gothic Quarter. This was my second stay in Meson Castilla and would certainly recommend.
