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

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.

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.

... built around a central courtyard and is very old and very Spanish/Moorish. The square outside was quiet when we arrived but when we went out for dinner a few hours later it was insane with a massive number of tourists, unpleasantly crowded and touristy. We asked at the hotel and were recommended a restaurant which was fabulous with good Sangria.

... find a buckle, it is too small but Im hoping I can make something out of it tomorrow.

I found my hostel after more walking and when asked to pay, realized I left my credit card at the store... more walking, more patience being tested and this time I was more irked. It worked out though.

I met some Brazillian people and we walked and walked and walked..... im so tired. And I had my first Tapas which are just mini meals pretty much and gelado. Some how I lost 40 euros ...

Another 7 hour flight down and I have a full blown infection of the nose, throat and head. 2 cold flu tablets later, we're waking the streets of Barcelona. Barcelona is beautiful. The streets however, are bustling with tourists everywhere you look. It's incredibly busy and particularly ethnically diverse. We were all extremely exhausted from the 2 days we have spent travelling to get here. We caught a bus from ...
