        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.

Hmmm...... We paid him and all piled out into the thong of Catalynians and we seemed to be going against the traffic so to speak. We had absolutely no idea where we were or where our Hotel was... Gazza said he thought we should cross the bridge, ok as good a plan as any... ...

        And so we said adios to Sitges and caught the train to Barcelona; a relatively easy affair as we transferred to the Metro which actually stopped across the street from our apartment - thank goodness, the suitcases are getting heavier! Settled we went exploring to the L'Eixample district, home to some of Barcelona's most famous (and downright elaborate) Modernista buildings. The Modernista movement was Barcelona's take on Art Nouveau, and it's leading architect, Gaudi. The ...

        ... Topless women are prevalent so I kept my eyes on the water! Apparently the done thing in Europe and no one bats an eye. We walked round the bend and to a nicer section of water and finally found a patch of sand for ourselves. The boys had told us not to bring cameras as Barcelona is one of the pickpocket areas in the world. But I really wanted to get some photos of the beach as did Kyria so we risked it. One of us was always with the stuff anyhow so it was fine. The water ...

        Why Barcelona wants to leave, really

        A travel blog entry by tatoji on May 31, 2014

        ... in a society where the markets and relations are made much more global and, especially in the EU, there is a feeling of comradery between those countries that are not doing so well with those who are. So if Barcelona were to leave Spain, and join the EU(because they wouldn’t leave if they wouldn’t be able to join the EU) then they would be pretty much in the same situation they are in ...

        ... indicated two-way traffic and three stepping stones were a major thoroughfare. There were also elevated sidewalks to hide the water pipes. My imagination kicked into high gear as I envisioned the chariots racing along the streets, the young men in their togas heading to the bar for a goblet of something potent and Mt. Vesuvius simmering and stewing in the distance ready to show everyone who was boss.


        Sorrento was not in the original plan ...
