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.
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
would use again
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.
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.

... from Paris down to Barcelona, not spending a single cent in four days. It was a really cool story and I felt a little disappointed that I could never really do that (dangerous?) Anyway we headed off on the three hour walking tour and here is me blabbing about what I learnt in my little history blog on the next page. After the walking tour on the Friday we went to the top of this hill with an Aussie/British girl we met, Jo. You are meant to get a gondola up to ...

Well, I am declaring the new title for Barcelona: Capital of Europe. Impressive in so many ways, this is the fantastic city I had not expected. Not sure why, so much is said, written and shown about the capital of Catalunya and the seat of the best soccer team in the world: F.C. Barcelona! http://www.fcbarcelona.com/

... for the monastery, aiming to stay ahead of the crowds for as long as possible. It is hard for anything actually man made to lay claim on the awe of a natural sight that looks man made. The monastery was holding services, so we couldn't enter the basilica. We walked around admiring the view and the large open atrium preceding the chapel. Rather than wait for services to end, we caught a funicular that transported us even ...
