      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Condestable Barcelona

      Clean / Central / Cheap

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

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

      Great location for Barcelona break

      Excellent value.

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      ... we could hold off on lunch for a bit longer. To wash down our empanadas we made our way to one of the dozens of stands selling fresh squeezed juices, Bree had a delicious Kiwi juice and I tried a Strawberry, both very very good.

      We then decided to head down the length of La Rambla, enjoying the one of the busiest streets in town and soaking up more of the wonderful energy of Barcelona. After a couple hours of poking around we found ourselves at the harbor ...

That and pale Katie cannot stay out in the sun for too long (sunscreen did not make it in the carry on bags). We spent most of our time in the shade and yet we still got sunburns! It makes no sense.

      I ran into a bit of bad luck two days before the end of the trip. A man dropped his key in near Katie and me while we sat ...

      ... and around the cathedral, that make you feel as though you're wandering through a maze from another century. Because you are, I suppose. Go get lost in them. It's wonderful. And while we're talking locations, avoid Las Ramblas, that main vein running through the city. It's much less fascinating and much more of a tourist trap, so unless you really need to stock up on your fridge magnets or you simply prefer to pay double the price for your glass of wine ...

Now, put that upside down, and you have the perfect arch, with every link in perfect and equal compression if it was under load..... Simple....? Ok, ok,...I tried, but it does make sense to me....Treas was just in 7th heaven....She even put pen to paper and this is how she saw ...

      ... 8230; Lots of people! Once we had walked the length of Las Rambles, we walked around the main square of La Placa Cataluņa, and then dove into the gothic quarter with it’s narrow streets and alleyways. It was very interesting. We saw the cathedral which was decorated for Christmas, and a market set up in the cathedral square which appeared to sell only nativity scenes and hand crafted characters for them. Very interesting.
