“50th Birthday Weekend!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

My family stayed at the Meson Castilla in March 2011 for what was an altogether fantastic fiftieth birthday celebration for yours truly. I am an avid football fan and ex-player, so to take in the La Liga game at the Camp Nou on the Saturday (19th March my actual birthday) was a dream come true, I was also lucky enough to take the museum tour on the Monday prior ro our departure back to the UK. Our hotel was perfectly situated, just of the main drag leading to Las Ramblas it was quiet enough to get some much needed sleep, yet close enough to the buzz of Barcelona itself. The bedrooms were comfortable, the food was good and the staff were very helpful, as it says in the brochure, the Hotel was very traditional which all added to the experience. A superb time was had by all, my son, brother-in-law and myself took in the football while the women went shopping

Great location, very nice staff, good breakfast, very clean and ok price. Smaller downsides were small room, window facing the wall (still not very close to the wall) and not so comfortable bed.

Very well placed - just a few minutes walk from the airport bus and the tourist bus (strongly recommended). Our room was fairly basic but spotlessly clean. Beds very comfortable. Our room looked out over the back of buildings, so no view but was amazingly quiet for a city hotel - a real bonus. There are sitting areas but no bar and only a machine for coffee. Breakfast was adequate. Staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English.
If you like to lounge around a hotel or your room for much of the day this is not the place for you. But if you want a good basic base to explore a fascinating city, this is ideal.

41 of us stayed here in February. There just was too much inconsistency in the rooms for such a large group. One room had a bathroom down the hall - not good.

However, if you're travelling as a couple there are some nice, if small, rooms to be had in this hotel. From that pt of view this is a very good 2 star hotel (almost 3 star quality).

There is a terrific breakfast room that feels like you're in back in the 30s. Basic but good breakfast.

The best thing about the hotel is the location. It may be worth slumming it for this alone.

Room Tip: Other travellers have said that rooms facing the front are noisy. This is true as skate boarders ar...

My daughter and I stayed for four nights and it was a good place to stay.The room was spotless everything was cleaned every day and the bedding and towels changed too.The room was really nice. Couldn't fault it at all. Near to amenities,great place to stay. I had requested a quiet room away from the street side and this was what we got.The staff were friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street.

This is the second visit we have made to Meson Castilla. Previously we had a family room with our children (10 years ago). This time we were with friends and it was pleasing to see that the very friendly owner is still there as are some of the senior staff. It gives the feel of a small family hotel and avoids the style of impersonal big hotels. The Hotel really scores because of its location, which is just 5 minutes from the top the Ramblas and within easy reach of the central attractions such as the Gaudi buildings. As other reviewers have mentioned, it serves a good buffet breakfast in a pleasant Catalan dining room with a small terrace if there in the summer. The only downside I picked up this time around was the street noise affecting rooms on the front, and this can go on till early hours. However when you combine price, location and the friendly staff then I have little hesitation in recommending it.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back of the hotel

I needed to stay in Barcelona one night to wait for my connecting flight. I asked at tourist information at aiport for hotel and (finding that there is a regular bus to airport) asked for a hotel in the city. They offered this one at a good price (well under list price). I am very pleased I took it. It has lots of old fashioned charm and it seems to be in a busy part of the city. The room was warm, the bed was soft, the shower worked, I couldn't hear anyone rearranging their wardrobe. Perfect. If you are obsessed about breakfasts then this wouldn't hit the mark for you because it was basic.
