This was one of the most pleasant surprises I have ever experienced in my history of traveling. I don't like crowded tourist resorts. I prefer locations where I can get into conversations and learn more about local culture. Hotel Mitus was the perfect choice for such a stay. Excellent location, three minute walk from the railway station (fifty minutes from Placa Catalunya in Barcelona, trains running every half hour), one minute walk from the best beach in the region, and just a few steps from the historical centre of a town packed with modernisma architecture. A friendly and charming multi-lingual staff takes care of their guests in this family-run hotel. Rooms are simple but very comfortable. If you need a parasol for the beach, an umbrella or a hair dryer - you can borrow it in the reception. Do you want suggestions for walking trips in the mountains, concerts, town fiestas or where to buy shoes? Just ask - and you will get answers in German, English, Russian, Spanish or Catalan. Y
Canet is a quiet town, unlike many others on the Maresme coast, and Mitus is a quiet hotel. There is practically no street noise at all.
The hotel has 10 rooms (as far as I could tell). In the whole town there are probably 20 rooms all together. If you are lucky enough to get one of them, you will spend your time in true catalan history.
I have stayed in many different hotels in the region earlier. But from now on, Mitus will be my first choice. I will definitely go again. The only problem is that the Hotel is so small that I may not recommend it to all of my friends.
Do you need a hair cut? No problem. Just across the street is a hair dresser. Do you want a dinner with esparrecs and butifarra washed down with delicious cava? A couple of minutes walk from the hotel doort throug the Carrer Aple will get you exactly that (and you will pass some amazing modernista buildings on the way). Are you temted by delicious local cured meat (fuet, longanissa, pernil etc.) just walk 100 meters straight up from the to the church and sit down at the bar where a charming couple can teach you about local wines, and point out the differences between different cured sausages.
In short Mitus is a lovely hotel, and the townspeople of Canet are welcoming you in a way that will make you feel at home from your first evening.
There is free WIFI in MItus, but the coverage is so-so. In my room, it was difficult to get a stable connection to the network. If there is one thing I could complain about, this is it. WIFI coverage in the bar is ok, though, so I read my news and checked my email there.
I cross my fingers, hoping that Canet de Mar will stay a small, quiet town where people take care of each other. It is a beautiful example of a true Catalan society. With Barcelona just a short trip away, the mountains close by (you can walk from Mitus to the mountains, for chrissakes) and the best beach I have found on the Maresme coast, Hotel Mitus is one of those few hotels that makes me want to return again and again. This was my first visit, but it will definitely not be my last.
