This family run hotel/house has a lot of charm, filled with interesting furniture, 2 indoor sitting rooms, many out door sitting areas in which to relax. The roof top has great views to the coast. Our room was large with a modern bathroom and quality fittings. It is only 2 minutes walk to the bus stop which takes you to the train station in 15 minutes, then a 35 minute train into the centre of Barcelona. The hotel staff, shop keepers and restauranteurs of the village where very helpful despite our lack of Spanish.

We stayed here to go to the Catalunya Grand Prix, and then have a couple of days sightseeing in and around Barcelona. Although called a Hotel, it is really a bed and breakfast, but do not let that put you off. It really is good!
The Hotel
Lovely Catalan 'Mas' in a beautiful location. The pictures don't really do it justice. Calm surroundings in a quiet location. Hotel itself restored and furnished with great taste and care, but with all mod cons included. Our room (The Barcelona room) was lovely, spacious, clean and had the biggest bed I have ever seen. There is also a lounge for guests - very comfortable with an 'honesty bar', good selection of drinks, free wifi etc. The only thing we thought was missing were tea and coffee making facilities in the room (but I'm sure drinks would have been provided if requested). That aside, everything you would expect from a top class hotel (toiletries, bathrobes etc etc all provided)
Secure free parking, swimming pool and a lovely private roof terrace for sunbathing.
Service
The patron (Fransesc) speaks English, is a very attentive host, a fount of information in relation to local restaurants and other useful info (e.g. local public transport). He also makes a very excellent Gin and Tonic!
Breakfasts were very good and substantial (cereals, fruit, cheese and hams, bread, tea and coffee)
Location
Quiet location in small town. Good local restaurants within easy walking distance (10 mins walk maximum) - our favourite was La Bodega for really tasty tapas dishes and good wine at very reasonable prices (they don't speak English, we don't do Spanish, and eeny meeny miny mo around the menu produced an amazing meal!) - Beware!! - local restaurants don't really get going until 9pm, and the only one open on a Sunday night is Pizzeria de la Hort (okay if you're starving, but rather bland food and not fantastic)
10 mins from the local beaches (Villaset de Mar) by car or bus. Barcelona easily accessible by public transport (bus to Villaset, then train station is 150m from bus stop. The return trip costs around 16 euros per person, frequent buses and trains, journey time between hotel and Barcelona around 1 hour each way)

Room Tip: From the glimpse we had of other rooms, they all look good. we had the 'Barcelona room' with...

Hotel Mas de Baix is a perfect retreat, close enough to Barcelona to make the city easily accessible but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle. The gardens and pool area are very pretty and scrupulously clean and tidy. Our room, tastefully furnished was also spotlessly clean and overlooked the gardens and pool and I have to say it is one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in! Francsesc, his family & staff are friendly & welcoming (this includes the dog who loves a good pat)! This a a great place to come if you need to relax, so calm and tranquil. It is in a great location for exploring Catalunya and you won't go hungry as Cabrils boasts a host of excellent restaurants. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel, especially to couples and we will return to sample some more of Mas de Baix's charming hospitality.

I loved this place. Actually, after driving all around Spain for three weeks, my travel partner and I both agreed Hotel Mas de Baix was our favorite place. The surrounding town of Cabrils made for a very nice tranquil backdrop to our hotel stay and served to re-energize us after a long day touring Barcelona. The breakfast was superb and the ambiance in the veranda only made you feel at home rather than a customer in some restaurant. Our rooms offered a unique view of the hills surrounding the hotel and a peek at the Mediterranean just beyond. The owner and staff were all so pleasant, helpful and friendly toward us the whole time. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others who are looking for charm, ambiance and a tranquil setting outside of the hustle and bustle of Barcelona.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the veranda on third floor.

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast. The location is outstanding and the rooms are very clean. Most notably, the owners and the people who work at this bed and breakfast are amazingly friendly and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They stayed up for our late arrival, they prepared us an early breakfast, they helped us guide the car up their steep driveway. Would definitely stay here again.

Our first impression was that of a beautiful setting of an old-style country house in between a garden of trees, flowers, plants and green grass neatly cut and cared for. A nice swimming pool added to the overall very charming atmosphere of peace and relaxation - and breakfast was served right in the middle of that wonderful surroundings. Needless to mention that this destination commanded the usual kind of services and amenities of a really great hotel, however, embedded in the style of an elegant Catalonian country house.

We never shied away from asking the landlord, Mr. Tarruella for any kind of advice, was it for an excursion destination closer or more distant from the hotel, a good restaurant, and for whatever things we sought advice from a well-minded person. The service personnel was of the same kind, i.e. always friendly and supportive. A word to those interested in the local climate: it is certainly a bit warmer than in Central Europe but by far not as hot as you might expect from Spain. Combined this with Mas de Baix and we had a perfect holiday. We will definitely return ...

Prior to booking our wedding in Mas De Baix I researched everything I could online (we never visited the hotel prior to the wedding day) and read every single review I could find. They are all true! Even more, when we arrived to the hotel a day before the wedding we were absolutely ecstatic, it looked so much more beautiful than in the photos.
We spent 5 days in Mas De Baix. This hotel has a special charm about it and a very unique, cozy feel that is impossible to describe in words. You feel like a true sybarite surrounded by comfort, sipping a glass of wine in the garden - and the beautiful smell of flowers, and the stars and the gorgeous views everywhere!
The hotel owner helped us every step of the way. He is an incredibly reliable person. He patiently and meticulously answered every one of about 1000 emails we sent him and did his best to make us feel comfortable. We were very happy with the musicians and the catering services he recommended. He is a gourmet guru and you can trust his restaurants recommendations 100 percent.
His beautiful wife...She is a lady of an impeccable taste and a master florist.
The flowers, ceremony decor, my bouquet - everything was very beautiful. I didn't have to direct her at all. I just described what I liked and let the master do her job. The flowers were my favorite part, the smell of peonies and freesia will forever remind me of my wedding day.
To summarize, we spent 5 days in the hotel, all rooms booked by close family and friends. The rest of the guests stayed in the hotel nearby. The ceremony, cocktail party and reception were in the garden of Mas De Baix. It is a perfect venue for an intimate wedding and you can completely trust the owners' recommendations.
Few words about Cabrils. It is a charming little town, very picturesque, quiet, cozy with plenty of great restaurants. You can always find something good to eat even on Sundays. It is about 20 minute drive from Barcelona center. You can also easily reach Barcelona center and the airport by public transport: bus stops right next to Mas De Baix and for 2 euro takes you to the train station in nearby city Vilassar De Mar (less then 10 minutes). Train to Barcelona, Placa Catalunia costs under 5 euro and takes about 40 minutes. To get to the airport by train is also easy, costs about the same, you just need to change trains at Barcelona Sants station. Traveling from Barcelona airport to Mas De Baix by public transport would take about 1.5 hour (40 minutes drive).
The beach in Vilassar De Mar is very nice and clean (although it is close to the train tracks).
Overall, staying in Mas De Baix is ideal for relaxation, romance or self-search, but you can easily explore Barcelona as well.
Thank you Mas De Baix for the unforgettable experience. We can't wait to go back!
