“Nice property with great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I stayed here last week of Feb. 2013 for Mobile World Congress. Great staff, exemplified by the fact that I reserved one too many nights: I called on my flight over during a layover in Miami and they said, "no problem, the room will be here for you" (NOTE: my employer paid a deposit which probably helped in this situation). I arrived after a hellish flight, tired, ready to collapse - the checkin process was quick, friendly and efficient. Room itself was large (for Europe) with nice en suite bathroom. Beds are firm (because they are thin) but again, this is normal for Europe. By European standards it was a very nice large room with modern amenities. My TV's remote's battery had run out -- I bought the remote by the front desk and a handyman came by with the remote with new battery in a matter of minutes. Same thing when I requested an iron and ironing board. My rate included breakfast, and this was definitely a highlight! Plenty of fresh Jamon, cheeses and pates of various kinds, fresh breads, croissants, eggs (scrambled and over easy), coffee (Nescafe) and fresh juices. The breakfast was awesome - and if it wasn't included I would have gladly paid for it -- it was that good! I also ate dinner twice on site -- their newer tapas style platter was very good. I ate lunch in my room twice with mixed results: Burger was not that good. But the Club sandwich was however. I also used the laundry service with excellent results. If you stay here, go to the 10th floor and check out the awesome view of Barcelona. There's a pool up there that, when there's nice weather, must be awesome to hang out at (alas, it was 20 C and cold/rainy most of the days I was there -- no pool time for me...).

As for the area itself, I wouldn't say it's run down -- it's not tourist-heavy like the Las Ramblas area, that's for sure, but that's doesn't mean it's bad or awful. It struck me as very domestic (lots of high rise apartments/condo buildings) among some industrial shops. There was also a high school and preschool nearby. Middle class is probably best way to put it. There's a very nice mall called Diagonal Mar within a 5-10 minute walk depending on how fast you walk. Very modern with all kinds of stores as well as a great Costco like grocery store where I picked up some good food (the rooms have fridges to store stuff in). The Selva del Mar metro stop is near the hotel also, and from that tram you can reach any other Metro stop in Barcelona. I was able to be at Las Ramblas in about 20 minutes. I also went all the way to Fira Gran Via where Mobile World Congress was in about 45-50 minutes. In terms of cabs, the cab drivers all knew where the hotel was and I never had to try to explain to them -- I just showed them the address on Google Maps on my iPhone and they knew where to go. Cab fare from El Prat airport is about 25 Euro.

In sum, I'd come back to Condal Mar Hotel - think it's a nice place at good price with excellent staff.

The hotel itsel is a bit out of town and it a bit of a strange area, but it is really close to the beach and metro station and we also felt safe walking round the area, even at night. We walked into the centre a couple of times - lovely walk along the beach! Room were lovely, and staff friendly, but the best thing about the hotel was definitely the breakfast - amazing buffet spread! Location is te only downside really, but with a 10-minute metro trip to all the major sights, it's no hassle.

We stayed here in December for 2 nights. We had a great room, it had everything you could need and the rooftop garden with pool was great in the evenings as you could see for miles around, including the Torre Agbar which is Spain's answer to the Gherkin, which has an amazing light show surrounding the structure in the evenings.

The staff were very helpful and offered advice on trams and things to see and do. The barman in the evenings was very pleasant and the drinks weren't overpriced.

We paid an extra 7 Euros each for breakfast (which we arranged when we arrived - cheaper than booking beforehand in most cases) and it was great. The selection was wonderful and it was good value for money.

The area is close to the beach which was really nice, clean and very accessible and we had lunch in one of the tapas bars along the promenade which was also really great.

We hired a car so the distance of the hotel to the town wasn't a problem, but it's not far from a large shopping area with clothes, food and a cinema. The trams also run close by so you could hop on one of those too.

Lots of things to see in Barcelona, it's a great place and the people are really friendly. I can't wait to go back, with my children this time!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the left hand side and you'll get a good view of the city and the Torre Agbar.

Went to Barcelona to celebrate our anniversary and new year and this amazing city did not let us down. The hotel was beautiful and i have not one complaint about my whole stay there . The rooms are cleaned daily and are moden and perfect to relax after been on your feet all day. Veiw from the top of the hotel is great perfect at night and great to sit and have a drink. New years in barcelona is not the best we struggled to find something really good to do due to not having £100's to go to an event, but ended up on the beach with the locals which i have to say was perfect in the end. Try to stay away from la rambles on new years eve as every two steps we got offored eiher drugs or beer, a key reason why we didnt stay there to see in the new year. This hotel is abit ofut of the way but is so close to transport links to the whole of barcelona and diagnal mall which is great for reastrants and only a 5 min walk away . We recomend RIBS which is in diagnal mall such a fun place with great food. overll hotal was great value for money and a holiday me and my partner will never forget :)

Room Tip: rooms are generally al the same but high up ones sometimes let you see las familaia from your room

A really pleasant hotel with some fantastic views on the top where the pool is located. About a 10 / 15 minute walk max to the beech which is clean. Walking along the beech to the centre of Barcelona takes about 20 minutes but its a nice stroll.

Rooms are clean, a little small but there modern and are comfortable.

Staff are friendly with good local advice of where to go and where not to go. Its not right in the centre but its in the new modern area of Barcelona - A great place to stay all year round for both the beech and city!

Clean modern rooms with a good breakfast provided. Staff were helpful. Located in a quiet area of Barcelona but the Metro, a large shopping mall and the beach are all within walking distance. Enjoyed the pool and the roof top patio bar. Amazing city view!
