TravelPod Member ReviewsCondes de Barcelona
It is a great location for shopping, sightseeing and eating. Very near a metro stop so you can get everywhere easily. The people at the hotel are very nice and helpful. The people of Barcelona have been very gracious.
The rooms are large by EU standards.

Historical Traveler Reviews Condes de Barcelona
Quite lovely--Great location
You really can't go wrong here. A big plus for us was the no smoking room (there's an entire no smoking floor). The location makes it, great neigherborhood, we felt safe (which doesn't mean not to exercise due caution as in any city). Although room service food not enthralling, otherwise service was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was well-furnished with a sleek, modern look. It faced a side-street & was very quiet, apparently a problem in many other hotels. I would gladly go back.
A pleasant stay
We just returned from a week at the Condes de Barcelona. Our executive room at 258 euros was modern and spacious, with parquet floors and a marble bath. The hotel is located on a busy upscale shopping street with a metro stop nearby. (The traffic in Barcelona is noisy so request a room facing the courtyard). There is a lovely roof top deck, also a good restaurant and bar. There is a new health club across the street with an extensive array of equipment, pool, saunas and hottub. A 2-day pass is approx $15. It is the perfect antedote to a long flight or too much walking. The hotel staff is very helpful and will recommend restaurants etc. All in all a very pleasant visit.
We loved the location of this hotel and it is delightful. Found the staff to be cordial but not overly friendly. The room was lovely. Best of all is the location. Would highly recommend the Cerveceria Catalana nearby (Mallorca, 236) for eating. We also absolutely would recommend that no one miss "Los Caracoles" restaurant near the water off La Rambla, Carrera del Escudellers 14. What a wonderful surprise that restaurant is...and a must to be experienced!!!
First choice in Barcelona
I visit Barcelona each year and this hotel has come to be my first choice. It's in a good location (the ideal location would be a little closer to Las Ramblas) in the new town near to some of Gaudi's best buildings. The hotel's rooms are of a high standard and the rooms in the back are some of the quietest in town (rooms on the street get the noise of the busy intersection.)
Enjoyed the location and the hotel
We stayed in the newer half of the Condes de Barcelona, and were fortunate to get an upgraded room at no charge. The surrounding neighborhood is quite nice, and offers more refined strolling opportunities than places closer to La Rambla. I have recommended the hotel to other friends traveling to Barcelona.
Great hotel & location
Just returned from Barcelona. I picked this hotel based on the recommendations on this site and we were very pleased. Great location on the nicest shopping street -- a very good restaurant nearby (Traguluz) and close to several Gaudi sites. Attractive rooms and friendly service. Seems to be a much safer neighbourhood than the Gothic Quarter.
Condesa at the Condes de Barcelona
Felt like a Condesa at the Condes de Barcelona...thanks to TripAdvisor's reviews...heart of Rodeo Drive in Barcelona...plus from our room we had the view of the Sagrada Familia as well as La Pedrera (another Gaudi creation). We walked to La Sagrada Familia, then took a taxi to Parque Guell and walked all the way down the hill back to our hotel...a bit of a walk, but stopped along the way at several cafes...The Condes has a super friendly staff..small rooms but super modern and clean...
Fab weekend in Barcelona
Fantastic location - especially if you're in Barcelona to shop!Staff were pleasant and helpful.Lovely room, good size, only thing missing was a coffee maker. Excellent quality food from the restaurant in the evenings although breakfast was a little limited in choice of cooked options.Overall had a lovely time and can see no reason why I wouldn't return there on my next trip.
Content at the Condes
We had intended staying in a hotel on the Rambla but, after reading reviews on Trip Advisor.Com about noise and pickpockets, changed our mind and booked the Condes. We were delighted we had. This is a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location on one of Barcelona's most chic streets. While a little expensive, it was comfortable, quiet and close to many attractions and the great subway system. Our only gripe was that there was no laundry service on the weekends.
