How to Get There
Cute little boutique hotel but that’s where it all ends. The hotel did not have functional air conditioning in all common areas, except for the rooms. Our room was very small even though it was listed as a an executive suite. There was barely enough room to walk around the bed. Bathroom was also very small. It had a toilet and a shower and that’s it. Shower water would run into the rest of the bathroom. Sink was right next to our bed and not in the bathroom. They do not change the towels everyday. They expect you to reuse them. Even at $200 a night!!
Walls are super thin. You. Can hear people talking in the hallway. I had to tell them to keep it down one morning at 8am when the maid was cleaning outside and moving furniture. Which woke us up. The only good thing was the front desk girl I think her name was Alex. She was very polite and helpful.
I would not stay there again and would not recommend it. You can find far better places for this price in that area. I was totally mislead but the good reviews on here. I had stayed at Suites Barcelona just up the street back in April and loved it. It cost me $560 for 4 nights at that hotel and I had a two bedroom apartment with a fully functional kitchen and laundry. Casa Mathilda cost me over $600 for 3 nights and we had a shoebox as our room. A major thumb down!!
Fabulous service and great breakfast, centrally located place with loads of charm. Apart from the fact that Barca is a fantastic place, this stay made it even better. A short walk from the hotel you'll find an alternative for breakfast if you'd rather eat out, also highly recommended. All in all, fully recommend this place and can think of coming back for sure.
We stayed in this hotel last month - the staff were lovely and really helpful and the rooms were perfect, so clean and comfortable. There are a lot of restaurants around to eat at and the metro station is very close to travel to different places and very cheap to buy a ticket. We opted for the T10 ticket which covers 10 metro journeys which you can use over several days until it is used up - it was around £12. Whilst in Barcelona we went to a beautiful beach and place called Stiges, I would really recommend visiting. If you ask at reception they should be able to give you advice on how to travel there.
The only one negative I have about this hotel is as our rooms were only cleaned once (this was not a problem as we were only there 2 full days) we did run out of toilet paper. When we asked for this at reception they said they didn’t have any to give us and we had to go to the local corner shop to buy some which we found quite strange considering we were staying in a hotel.
All in all it was amazing visit and we would definitely stay in this hotel again and recommend to others. Thank you for making us so welcome!
A hidden gem - you could easily walk right on by, if not for the excellent directions provided. On arrival we were delighted to enter an airy, cool space and the antique lift is a delight.
We had a terrace room - great to sit out and just relax after a hot morning walking around the sites; although this does back onto a school so afternoons in the week can be noisy. There is also a cool, calm seating area indoors, with books and magazines if you want to rest and recharge.
The staff are warm and friendly and any request is met with a smile - nothing was too much trouble. At reception there is a map with recommendations to eat locally but the staff were happy to advise / make a reservation for us.
For us the hotel is with in walking distance of a number of sites, although a metro map is provided at reception and they have also noted the bus number to get to Park Guell.
Whether you want to use the hotel as a base to explore the city or you want some quiet time to recover from a day's sight seeing I highly recommend Casa Mathilda.
For our first trip to Barcelona, we stayed for four nights in this charming boutique B&B to celebrate our Silver Wedding anniversary because of its good central location. On first impressions, Casa Mathilda can be described as quirky (but in a good way). It isn’t a conventional B&B in the British sense; it’s part of a block of apartments dating from the 1920s, with original frescos on the hall walls and the original lift with its ornate glass doors and seats are still in use. The B&B is located on the first floor and the other floors are occupied as flats. The staff are very helpful and friendly.
We were in an air-conditioned room with a tall shuttered window overlooking the hall and stairs and for this reason we were unable to open it, presumably for health and safety reasons. It didn’t bother us because we weren’t in the room except to sleep. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were changed daily. There was an en suite bathroom with shower, toilet, but the sink was in the room itself. There was complimentary bath and shower gel and a soap dispenser.
Breakfast was simple but varied and held in the lounge round the corner from the Reception area; there were cereals, hard boiled eggs, delicious coffee from a coffee maker you operate yourself, juices, breads (also a toaster), croissants, jams and marmalade, cheeses, yoghurt, and a variety of meats. Outside the lounge area was a terrace with comfortable seating and a prettily tiled wall.
If you choose to stay at Casa Mathilda, there are some points to note:
1. Before you go, make sure you buy a Barcelona city guide with a good street map included! Here’s why...
2. Reception is open between 8.30 in the morning and 8.30 in the evening, so if you’re coming on an evening flight and are likely to arrive out of hours, as we were, email the hotel in advance to warn them. We were sent a door code for the downstairs door and one for the hotel door and this worked well. We expected to arrive around 11 pm but unfortunately our flight was delayed by an hour and the shuttle service we’d pre-booked dropped us off in Carrer Del Bruc, round the corner from Roger de Lluria where the hotel is situated, hence the need for a good street map! We didn’t have a clue where we were and it took fifteen minutes to find the hotel; we didn’t let ourselves until past midnight! We were mortified the next morning when the receptionist told us she’d waited for us until 11! We would have been better off with a taxi transfer and giving the driver the exact address. The hotel does provide airport transfers, however
3. There is a TV in the room, but with only two English-speaking channels: Bloomberg Europe and CNBC Europe, both of which discuss business and the stock markets. The other channels are in Spanish and French
4. The hotel is in a good central location: Sagrada Familia is a seven minute walk away and if you’re feeling fit you can also walk to La Rambla in about thirty minutes. There is an excellent bus service, however; if you get the bus buy a T-10 multi-person ticket from the Metro station for 10 Euro 20, well worth the money!
All-in-all, a very pleasant stay!
