      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.

      ... We got the cheese biscuits to share, I got tomato and mozzarella salad, Cory got the salmon potato salad. For meats I got the teriyaki chicken and Cory got beef, the closest thing to steak. It was tasty. To drink I got sangria! Mmmmm. Sangria is all over this city. We ordered one more tapa each. Cory got the teriyaki chicken and I ordered the potato pancake. It was like a omelet with potato, would have been perfect for breakfast. We walked around our area. And checked out the ...

We went to a little Spanish restaurant that they go to a lot and the food was Devine. Spent the rest of the night after leaving them around 11pm wondering back to the hostel and trying to sort out my bag for tomorrow's early ...

After lunch we rod through the city up to two of Antoni Gaudi's creations. Gaudi is a very famous Spanish architect, he never used straight lines in his designs and his work is quite amazing. We saw his most famous work first, the Sagrada Familia. It's is a super sized and unfinished church. They have ...

We had a very informative and entertaining tour through old town in Barcelona.

      ... but for sure thrilled by the rest of our afternoon - getting a face and forearms tan (wasn't quite warm enough to make those tan lines more appealing), overlooking a beautiful city and of course being surrounded by also good looking friends. On the way back, Benny was all cute and introduced us to her Spanish lover boy. That evening after we went back to the hostel for a siesta, we attempted to meet up with them and some of their other friends at a ...
