Casa Mathilda, a charming bed & breakfast

Only a ten minute walk from Gaudis Casa Batlló, and a 15-minute walk from La Sagrada Familia, finding this little bed & breakfast has been such a fantastic surprise.

Having only 14 rooms, Casa Mathilda has a modern but rustic spaces whist still keeping the catalan architectural roots, and many of the original features, like the wooden floors, some of the tiles, and the large wooden doors in the breakfast room.

Every room has its own ensuit, safe, and minibar. You can request a duplex that sleeps three, or ask for a crib to be put in your room free of charge. They also have some rooms that can be connected, although they are few so it’s best to reserve as soon as possible.

Asunta (the owner) decided to name her bed & breakfast after her Mother Mathilda, who loved receiving people in her home, and making sure that they felt welcome and at home. This is exactly what she has managed to do with her bed and breakfast. She has made it an extension of her home, and adapts to the needs of her loggers. They offer breakfast tea and coffee in their sitting area and terrace, however if you want to have a little picnic on the terrace, they are very lenient and understanding. (As well as will provide you with a microwave and glassware.)

When Asunta first set up her project she had a very determined idea that she wanted her rooms to be affordable, whilst still be well designed and beautiful. It took her five years to find the right place, and has now been open for two years, which she describes as a very intense relationship and learning curve.

What is nice about Casa Mathilda is that because it is a personal project, it has been carried out with a great deal of love and patience. This undoubtedly comes across when you walk down the hallways, and the staff greet you with a friendly smile, and the owner asks you if you need a hand figuring out how to get la Sagrada familia.
