Chbalibar stayed here on Aug 15, 2013 during their trip titled: *cb & db's European adventure*.
... girls were stuffed by then and retired to their room at the B&B, while Greg and I popped into the closest bar for a quick drink...5 hours, two new Dutch friends and many euro later, we wobbled home. Day 3 we met a whole new bunch of people at breakfast...a lovely couple from Melbourne Florida and a US couple who are currently teaching in *****ia. We made plans to meet up that evening with the latter couple and headed off to scout the ...
... previously. As a result, we didn't spend too much time in our hotel so instead ventured out for a walk down the main road of Nice. Such a short walk to the beach as well - only 15 minutes away! We had a group dinner organised for tonight as well, which was in a cute restaurant with an open roof and colored lights in the trees. Instead of heading out for more drinks after dinner, we walked the street and got some gelato before turning in for the ...
... fair, I am talking about the tourist zone. Americans galore ( I overheard someone saying "I know right?" ) and a lot of Germans, it is a pretty short flight for them. At first I thought they were here for the big Futbol game but no, they are here on holiday. I can not even imagine trying to see the major sites of the city during the summer, but, if that is the only time you can travel, then there it is. Side note: Try hard to book sights that you ...
Waking up to another cool morning but blue sky everywhere we knew we were in for a fantastic weather day again in Barcelona. After breakfast we took the short walk to the train station to catch the train to Tarragona. This town is around 1hour by train and a return ticket is 15 Euros. This was a great way to see the outskirts of Barcelona including such things as market gardens as well as the coast line along the Mediterranean.
Tarragona is where once ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Condado Hotel Barcelona
Nice place, but service is lacking!
I do not recommend this place to anyone...
With exception of a few staff members the remaining employees were inept!
Seriously, monkeys could have provided better service...
nice area, but the walk from the city centre & nearest metro stations gets old, quick...
I'd look elsewhere before booking this place...
We stayed here twice (for three weeks in total) and had a marvellous time on both occasions. This was before the renovation, so I cannot comment on this.
Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for a long weekend. We got a good deal on the internet and for the rates we got was pretty good value considering it was 15mins walk to Las Ramblas.
Very fashionable upmarket hotel - great value!
I spent five nights at the Condado Hotel, and thought it was fantastic. Very modern sophisticated decor, beautiful rooms. Dark laminate flooring, good architecture, white modern bedding, good showers, white marble sink in dark wood pannelling, Very attractive. I was facing the street but the double glazing kept out most of the noise. I had my breakfasts at the bakery down the street. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The air conditioning worked well, and there was a free internet connection in the lobby to check your mail. The decor is beautiful. I stayed in a twin room for 98 euros per night, a fantastic value for this quality.
We were worried about staying here after reading some of the reviews here but our stay was great. They just finished a major remodeling this year (2006). The hotel was very clean and new appearing. The staff was friendly and very helpful. There are two elevators that function very well. The room was of a comfortable size and clean. There is a free internet connection in the room and also a computer in the lobby that can be used free for the internet. We were in the front of the hotel on a busy street but there are double windows with rubber gaskets around their edges resulting in a very quiet room. The heating/AC worked well. The location was pretty good if you don't mind walking a few blocks to access public transportation to anywhere. There is a nice bakery/cafe within 1/2 block and many stores around. I'd go back on my next trip. (I see the other reviews were done a few years ago. The remodeling helped.)
This hotel was described as 3 star (Expedia August 2004). However, did not come up to 3 star expectations. The rooms are large and spacious, however very basic. Our room may have had a window which opened, however it looked out against a wall of a very close adjoining building. The amenities provided by the hotel are limited/nil.
Condado a nice hotel
Stayed at the Condado Hotel in June 2004. The room was spacious and we had ample closet space as well. We were within walking distance form Casa Mila and some other Architectual wonders. The hotel was not in the main hub of things but we felt extremely safe walking to and from the hotel at night. The staff were helpful and the majority could speak adequate English. On the downside, no bar in the hotel and the hotel maids would allow doors to slam when leaving the rooms, making it very difficult to sleep in past 9 a.m. Overall the hotel was clean and in a safe area, in walking distance to many points of interest, restaurants and clubs. If budget is a concern definitely a good choice, if not then probably would prefer somewhere more posh.
Less than expected
The staff at the reception desk were unfriendly and unhelpful (my husband thought they were snooty). The air conditioning in our room didn't work. The room and bathroom were spacious, and there was lots of closet space. The location is near very upscale stores, but there are hardly any restaurants nearby.
