Subject: Re: Hotel Meson Castilla
Hello Graziella: We had a nice stay at the Hotel Meson Castilla. We had a corner room with a balcony and a little refrigerator which allowed for some nice sunsets with our own little tapas bar. The hotel is clean and the staff at the front desk are reserved but very helpful. The breakfast was fine, served in a great breakfast room on the top floor.

Shall we say that the Meson is in a mixed neighborhood. I never felt unsafe, but I was with my impressive husband, and we were out quite late at night (as is the custom in Barcelona). I would say that you should take a taxi if you are out alone late at night but no worries during the day and evening. Two blocks from the Meson is a wonderful, tiny restaurant named Ca La Maria which serves Catalan specialties. Absolutely the best food that we had in Barcelona.

Have a wonderful time! Chris in Lakewood, Colorado
