“Hotel Meson Castilla, great location and furniture BUT”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

I traveled in 2011 to Barcelona to attend a conference. The university was very close to the hotel. the conference gave us a discount in the hotel so the price was great. For any tourist and traveler to Barcelona, the location of the hotel is really great. It is very close to las ramblas which is the famous street in Barcelona where you can find restaurants, souvenirs shops, the sea, the beaches, undergrounds, streets' artists and shows especially Mime artists, Carrefour where you can buy anything with good prices and La Boqueria wher you canbuy fresh fruits and fish. Moreover, the hotel is close to the square called Plaça de Catalunya where you can find hop on hop off buses and the airport bus which takes you directly to the airport.But, the hotel lobby is very small. The room is very small but I like the furniture it looks like what is found in the pic that i saw on the internet. The television set is old. The Air conditioner makes a big noise and does not work. The weather was hot in July in Barcelona and the A.C did not cool. You can hear the streets' noise at night especially that Barcelona and this area do not sleep early in summer which is something i like. The breakfast was good but i find many items in the breakfast buffet bought from Carrefour. I like the restaurant where you can take breakfast in a small balcony or indoor. I like the furniture which looks like being antiques. There is a wifi and a pc in the lobby to use the internet. I could not call Egypt from the hotel and the receptionist could not help me to make the call. I bought a ticket to watch flamenco show in a place also close to the hotel which is one of the best in las ramlas and called Tablao Flamenco Cordobés. Also, if you walk a bit you gonna find malls, and many other sites.

I booked this Hotel as a surprise 50th birthday treat for my husband, I paid for a taxi transfer from the airport as I had no idea how to get to the Hotel. Once there, we were welcomed by a lovely lady on reception. after booking in, she gave us clear directions to the local Metro and answered all my queries. all the staff were very friendly, what made it even more personal was the fact that when we came into reception the receptionist greeted us by name each time. The hotel couldn't be more central to everything, it was literally around the block from La Ramblas.and close to the local Metro.

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the back as a lot of young people gather in the nearby tapas bars in the e...

As per previous reviews I can only repeat that this hotel is centrally located,very traditional,clean and the staff very helpful. We had a very pleasant weeks stay here.The only draw back is if you are given a room at the front it can be very noisy in the evenings. We asked to move and were given a very nice room at the rear with no hassle.

Room Tip: Not a front room

Stayed here with my wife way back in 2009 so its about time I wrote a review. Locating the hotel wasn't easy but once we were checked in all was well. Rooms were spacious clean and comfy , staff that we had dealings with were very helpful nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was very good with an excellent choice of what to eat. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay .

Room Tip: Sleep quality was average as we had a room on the front and it was noisy, so if you stay here try an...

We stayed in this hotel as part of a BA holiday package. What a lucky find.
From the minute we walked in we loved it.

V friendly desk staff. Beautifully clean room and bathroom. Wonderful homely and interesting furnishings and decor.

The breakfast was excellent- meats, cheese, pastries, toast, rolls, yogurt and fresh fruit and more. We were lucky that the weather was good when we were there, and so could eat outside in the little courtyard, filled with potted plants.

The room was quite noisy, but it wasn't enough to disturb our sleep- even on the night of the big football game for the Spanish cup- Barcelona/ Madrid!

Being someone who finds sleeping in air conditioned rooms unpleasant, it was wonderful to have a room where the windows were huge and opened wide.

Lastly- as a point of convenience there was a chilled machine in the lobby , with water/coke/ chocolate etc. also a coffee machine

I loved this hotel , and would go back there in a heartbeat if I revisit barcelona

Value for money ! Very good location, easy access to La Ramblas 5 minutes walk. It's a small Hotel but clean. The service was very good and the breakfast had almost everything ! I strongly recommend it.

The hotel is in a great location, very traditionally decorated and furnished and supported by generally friendly staff. Breakfast is functional and plentiful. As with so many places, the universal constant is the inconsiderate nature of one's fellow human beings. The slightest noise from neighbouring rooms reverberates as if someone was digging up the road three feet from your ear and when you factor in the people concerned show no regard whatsoever for the comfort of others, sleep beyond about 7:30am is pretty much impossible. Fine if you're an early riser but not if you want a more relaxing start to your day.
