The hotel is a little dated, but the location is excellent, only a block or two from Las Ramblas with nice little shops along the way. Hotel was clean and comfortable if not rather kitschy, seemed like it was still in the 50's. A nice quiet refuge for our stay.

I stayed here with teenage granddaughter and friends. Ideal location, close to the Ramblas and city centre. Lively student area. Very safe and secure.24 hour reception. Charming and informative staff. The rooms are very quirky and Spanish style. Spotlessly clean. Clean towels and linen daily. Secure safe in reception area. No restaurant, but we'll stocked vending machine in foyer. Lovely... More

This is a small old-fashioned hotel. Expect basic comfort. The room and bathroom were both small and clean. The wifi worked perfectly. The bed was comfortable. Staff are helpful, offering to make numerous calls to find me a dinner restaurant on a Sunday, when so many Barcelona restaurants are closed. The breakfast is dull, low-quality continental.

Probably the best thing about Meson Castila is it's location, 5 minutes walk from Placa Catalunya and La Ramblas. The airport shuttle bus terminates in Placa Catalunya, so it's the nearest your going to get to a door to door service, for the grand total of eur5.80 each. However, if you are going to pitch up in Barcelona after dark,... More

I chose this hotel as it was the cheapest, best rated for the dates I wanted. It is very close to La Rambla with lots of cafes, tapas bars and restaurants in the surrounding area. I felt very safe walking alone in the evening. The single room I had was a great size, but looks dated due to the yellow... More

Meson Castilla is about 50 yards from the north start of Rambla. It's next to the University square and is therefore alive but not disruptive. It's a 5 minute walk from the central stop for the airport shuttle. The foyer/lounge is just that - a small area to check in and to sit and wait as your party assemble for... More

There is always a degree of trepidation when you book a 2 star hotel, but there should be no worries with this place. Ideally placed to let you explore Barcelona it is very clean and the staff are wonderfully courteous and helpful. We stayed for three nights just before Christmas and on the first night we mentioned the late night... More

I have nothing but praise for this hotel, I was nervous when booking this hotel as I would not normally stay in a 2* hotel however the location and price was what I wanted to pay for a short weekend break. From the moment I arrived at the hotel the staff was so helpfull and nothing was too much trouble... More
