    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Condestable Barcelona

    Clean / Central / Cheap


    Stayed here in may for 3 nights. Very central hotel, only 5 min walk to Las Ramblas. Triple room was large, bright, clean and had a balcony. Hair dryer was provided @ reception. We didn't avail of the breakfast - lots of nice cafes near by. Staff weren't overly friendly. Only complaint was there seems to be a function room on the second floor where non-residents gather, lots of noise from this room @ night, and there was a dog in the room next door!

    Overall very good value for money, couldn't beat the location.

    6 Nights


    Excellent 6 night stay in Barcelona, found hotel to be more than adequate for our needs, had a quad room with kids aged 12 & 7,

    Breakfast was ok for price paid & room & beds were fine, we tended to go out from 10am to 11pm so literally just used thhe room to freshen up & sleep - Only thing missing was drinks facilities in the room

    Heard one or two complaints re: Noise on a night (there were a lot of students) but we heard nothing

    Probably not the best if the weather is poor

    Very thin walls


    good location, staff and breakfast but the walls are too thin and we couldn't sleep at all.

    Great location for Barcelona break


    within easy walking distance of the centre

    good price

    pleasant receptionists


    would use again

    Excellent value.


    I have recently returned from Barcelona having stayed at the Hotel Condestable. When we first arrived I was a little worried about the exeterior of the hotel, but once inside I was really surprised at how well laid out the hotel was and it was exceptionally clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget it was excellent value and close to all amenities. Very easy to get to from the airport, only four stops on the airport bus, and it drops you off practically outside the hotel.

    The only downside was the breakfast, we did not think it was very good value, when you only have to walk a couple of yards from the hotel and get a good breakfast at half the price.

    Would stay there again.

    Ideal location


    The hotel is ideally located for Las Ramblas and Placa de Catalunya. It also has a metro station on its doorstep (Universitat). The room was basic but clean and had a hot powerful shower. The breakfast was very good, with a lot of choice and you could eat as much as you wanted.

    The roads outside are busy and there can be some noise at night in the hotel, so if you are a light sleeper, ear plugs would be useful. Renovation work is still going on, but we did not hear or see anything of this.

    I would stay here again and would recommend it.

    Excellent location, brillient budget hotel.


    went to hostel de mar. it was the most crap hotel i have ever been to in my life. then i went to this hotel via the tourist office. it was a god send. it has an excellent location. 3 mins from ramblas. good facilities. i would recommend this hotel to any budget traveller. 5 stars!

    Location, location, location


    If you don't want to spend a fortune staying in a hotel on Las Ramblas, this hotel is in the perfect location. The airport bus stops directly in front of the hotel on University square, there's also a metro station across from the hotel. Catalunya square is a short 5 minutes walk from the hotel. (Unfortunately though we had to catch the airport bus back from Catalunya square which seems more like a 15 mile hike when you're carrying a 14 kilo holdall!!) The hotel is very clean, our room was spacious with three beds (although the third bed was a camp bed). Hotel staff were more than willing to change our rooms for us but but not until the second day. At this point we persevered. Plenty of clean towels and bedding was changed twice in the 5 days we stayed. The only disadvantage to the hotel is the noise - traffic around University Square and the three student bars under the hotel. There's also an internal phone in the lobby which rings at least 3 times each and every night. Two simple steps for a perfect night's sleep - don't stay on the 2nd floor and don't have a room facing University Square.

Locals of Barcelona always refer to themselves as Catalonian, never Spanish). Güell asked local architect Antoni Gaudí to draw up plans for an estate for rich families.

    We were in Barcelona 4 years ago and really didn't see much of it so decided to get on a hop-on hop-off bus to see a lot of the city. The ship had berthed at a totally different wharf to where we were last time and we had to get a shuttle bus into La Rambla (which is the main street). We caught the bus as soon as we left the shuttle and it took us around for 2 and half hours to see a lot of ...

There were photos of the past owners over the years and the current owner from a boy to a man alongside the many celebrities that have dined there plaster all around the walls all over the restaurant. Photos of him with Tina Turner, Arnold Schwartzinegger, Mister from one of my favorite movies The Color Purple. You know.... Mrs. Celie's husband.

    ... a nap in my dorm room, that oddly enough remained empty the entire length of my stay but that I was grateful for, as I have learnt in the past that girls snore too.
    Waking up in the evening, I headed out for a quick bite up the road. I was staying in the Paral.lel area, close to a district called El Ravel, which was once very rough and tumble, but is now quite trendy and buzzing with bars and young people out at all times of the night- eating, drinking ...

    ... the Sebastian, at 9. We're on vacation :) We tried to use the washing machine, which was no cooperating with us. Who the hell can understand this!! What can be so complicated as to warm, cold, hot and then delicate, permanent press, regular. Start. It was no east, water started coming out of the bottom, not into the washer. We just gave up. Sebastian got dressed and went to get breakfast while i "got ready". I didnt think the store was so close so I secretly started posting ...
