Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Constanza Barcelona
Great value boutique hotel - would definitely recommend
We really enjoyed our stay here. Its a lovely hotel. We stayed in an appartment on the top (6th floor) which I would defintely recommend. The fridge and hob can be easily covered up by a sliding door. The room itself wasn't enormous, but the ample roof terrace more than made up for this. It was very tastefully done out, and all the fittings etc were of an excellent quality. We particularly liked the large shower.
The location was excellent. It's only 10 minutes walk from the Barri Gotic, and just over 5 minutes walk from Playa Catalunya. It's near Urquniona metro station for great connections around the town, including the beach.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The one minor downside was the air-con, which was quite noisy.
For a boutique hotel, it's great value and we would definitely return.
Loved the Constanza. I stayed at the hotel for 5 days - June 27-July 1 in a single room. The hotel was chic and clean and my room was very comfortable with modern accomodations. The location of the hotel was superb, within walking distance of all the sites (Catalyuna, Las Ramblas, Picasso) all about a 20 minute walk. The hotel was also quiet in the evening so you can get a good night sleep. I would definitely stay at Constanza again, but would probably get a double room to ensure some extra space.
I have just come back from a hen weekend in Barcelona where we stayed at the Hotel Constanza. The hotel were very helpful with many things such as booking restaurants, before we even arrived in Barcelona. The group pretty much took over the hotel, but regardless they were extremely accomadating and helped out where necessary. The rooms are very modern and up to date and clean too. I stayed in a room with a terrace which made the room feel much larger than it was. Unfortunately not all terraces get the sun, so no last minute sunbathing for us!! Still that isn't what we were there for. Even those with rooms with balconies had no complaints and still felt the rooms where plentiful.
Hotel Constanza is very central to the main areas for shopping and you can get there within a 10 minute walk. It also wasn't that expensive to get taxis, especially to the port which is where we spent our evenings.
I will definitely go back there again, but I think it will have to be soon, as once word gets out about this little family run, trendy hip place, the prices will rise!
We stayed two nights and were very pleasantly suprised. Upon arrival the put us in an large apartment without a terrace. I had an email confirming that were were supposed to have a terrace and we were switched promptly. The room with the terrace was smaller but having the outside patio made up for it.
The staff were all very professional, helpful, and friendly. We were trying to find a restaurant and the receptionist jumped on the internet and printed us a map to find it.
The location was great. A short walk from the Placa de Cataluna which is the hub for the Tourist Bus, which was a great way to see the city. There were plenty of small restaurants nearby as well.
Stylish and affordable hotel
We stayed at the Constanza for 3 nights in May and were very impressed.
It is perfect for travellers looking for value for money, but also wanting a hotel with an element of style and sophistication.
24 hour reception, room to store baggage if you have a late flight, safety deposit boxes and mini bar in rooms. The hotel and bedrooms were spotlessly clean, with modern stylish decor. We stayed in a 'suite' for 120 Euros per night, which was spacious compared to other city hotels we have stayed in, and even had it's own outdoor terrace. There is no hotel bar or restaurant, however, there were many cafes, shops, restaurants and bars within short walking distance of the hotel. The staff were very polite and helpful.
The hotel is well located on a quiet, safe street on the edge of the Exaimple district , yet near all of the major tourist areas. 5 mins walk from Placa de Catulyna, the Ramblas and Passege Del Grazia. 10 /15 minutes walk from the Gothic Quarter and the Born district. Nearest metro: Uriquona / Passege Del Grazia. Port Olympic can be reached in about 10 minutes via metro.
We just returned from four thoroughly enjoyable nights at the Hotel Consanza. We rented the apartment room which was a little tight for three, but the large terrace combined with wonderful weather almost doubled the size of the space. The room was clean and bright with comfortable furnishings and nice quality cotton sheets and towels. The staff was friendly and helpful. They even went out and bought us a corkscrew when we requested one.
Hotel Constanza is in a perfect location to see Barcelona. The neighborhood is clean, appeared to be safe, and is convenient walking disance to the metro, bus, and many tourist points of interest. I would definately recommend Hotel Constanza as an intimate and refreshing alternative to larger more impersonal hotels.
Stylish but uncomfortable
This hotel is in the gorgeous Eixample area, you can walk from the Aeroport bus stop in Plaza Catalunya and the Concepcio fresh food market is only 5 minutes walk away. For these reasons only would we consider staying there again.
We booked a week here in January, and confirmed a King bed apt with terrace and kitchen. The small kitchen was very well stocked with pot, wok pan, cutlery, dishes, it had a microwave, hob and sink. The terrace was a great size but stark--not a single plant but lots of sun. Bathroom and layout were very modern. CNN was advertised but not available, internet is free.
Main problems were the bed and the heating. We had confirmed a King bed as part of the price--that's what made it an attractive package with kitchen and terrace--but there was only a double bed. In fact the hotel has no King size beds. In addition, the extra blanket on the double bed was twin size, so even together they don't cover two people. It was cold at night, but it wasn't possible to have the heater on because it had been installed directly over the bed (blasting you), and the controls didn't work to stop the fan once the temperature had been reached which meant you were shocked then with cold air. Heaters/ac are directly above the beds for all the rooms and they claim it will be fixed, but that didn't help us. So it was a choice of either freezing under short blankets, or being very uncomfortable and kept awake with the force and noise of the fan or getting up and down to turn it on and off. Also, the private apt behind the bed wall was very noisy--high heel and machinery sounds while you're trying to sleep.
We loved the area but will look around for somewhere else or a holiday rental before coming back because it was a bit disappointing.
Consternation at the Constanza
All went well with the initial booking of this hotel. Transfer of emails confirmed a double room with a double bed. I emailed for confirmation 5 days before trip and received a reply that my reservation was fine.
Upon arriving things got bad. Firstly I noticed construction work being undertaken in the lobby. It didn't look bad so I thought no more of it, until 7am the next morning when I was awoken by loud banging and drilling. I went down to complain and just got excuses and no solution or apology whatsoever. Eventually a small discount was applied to our room rate, but still no apology. What is galling is that they did not mention any construction work at any point of the booking procedure, for obvious reasons, even when I wrote 5 days before arrival to confirm.
Throughout our weekend stay we had more problems, here are some:
- reserved a room with double bed - got a room with two singles pushed together and made up separately.
- hotel was noisy throughout the night with lift noise, patron noise and road noise, don't go here if you want a good nights sleep!
- Shower and sink leaked making tile floors very slippery
- Asked for ironing board and iron (we were going to a wedding) never got it. When they tracked it down they gave us the room number and told us to go get it!
This hotel is truly style over substance. The look is nice but the things that really matter are all missing.
Hotel Constanza was wonderful. Small boutique hotel with friendly staff on a quiet street that was close to everything. If you like to be near the centre of it all, but not smack dab in the thick of 'tourist central', this is a great place. Most everthing is walkable, and if not, there is a Metro station near by. Room had a terrace in back which was great. Staff was very accommodating and eager to please. Just around the corner from a Gaudi building: Casa Calvet. And for bargan hunters, there are a bunch of outlet stores on the next street over (Mango, etc). I will definitely go back.
Stayed at the newly opened Constanza in September 2004. Boutique style with apartments as well as bedrooms all with a/c . Our apartment had a kitchenette with fridge hob and microwave small sitting area with tv very comfortable beds great shower and best of all a private terrace. The hotel is in a lovely area, quiet, safe and only 5 minutes walk from Placa de Catalunya. A very very nice hotel with a handy bar/restaurant next door. Excellent value I would stay here again.

... views of the Mediterranean and slips full of ships of all shapes and sizes. We crossed over a bridge that led to a small man-made island which was home to a fairly large shopping mall and found a table on the patio of a very busy seafood restaurant to have some lunch. After nearly freezing to death in Paris it was amazing to sit outside with the sun beating down on us so to celebrate we ordered a couple local beers and some delicious fresh seafood.

We learnt of the changes in this industry over the years and know now what to look for when buying this oil. A ...

Everyone was in such a good mood (and mostly drunk) and it was easy to stay awake through the night with all this energy flowing. When we left we each got a coffee and a sandwich for breakfast and then we walked around until 7 am when we waited in the streets for the bulls! Since this entry involves two days I'll finish it ...
... Italian and perhaps English--laughs at my constant confusion of Spanish and Italian -such as confusing essere with ser, etc.
Renate--from Recife, Brazil--also laughs when I confuse Portuguese terms for Spanish. For instance--to earn is ganar in Spanish, gagner in French, ganhar in Portuguese, so it is quite easy to confuse everything! I am speaking some kind of Span-Ital-Fran-Portuges-ish, I guess.
