“Christmas Markets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Hotel was in perfect location for getting to places interest - La Rambla, Catalunya Sq and Gothic Cathedral. Easy to pick up the Tourist Bus. Small Cafe open early morning for coffee and light breakfast and reasonably priced. Would definitely book here again.

A great location for La Rambla, but consequently incredibly noisy with the sound of street musicians and milling tourists into all hours of the night. The hotel has seemingly no sound insulation. The room was clean, but the hotel only has 2 stars, so don't expect much. If you're partying in the old town, it will suffice admirably, but it's not a hotel for a relaxing holiday.
No food in-house except a cafe open in the mornings only, but the surly receptionist suggested guests are better served sampling the ample culinary variety of the location. A fair price for a central hotel.

Room Tip: It might be less noisy in a room not facing the Boqueria street.

Travelled here with brother and mother for a long weekend in Barcelona around Christmas time.

We chose this hotel as there were 3 of us travelling and there were very few hotels in Barcelona which came up on searches for 3 people to share a room. Thank God the Condado did!

The Condado hotel is in a very good location - if I had to fault it on this I would say the metro station is a bit far (even though it's only about 10-15 minutes walk away). There are plenty of buses which stop along the road too.

Never ate there as there are so many other places to eat around the city.

The room itself was lovely and kept very clean - the cleaning staff were also very polite when we encountered them as were staff at reception.

The free internet on the computers in the lobby was a God-send when we had to check if our flight back to the UK was going ahead due to the heavy snowfall.

Also there's a supermarket called 'Mercadona' on the opposite side of the road from the hotel where you can get snacks etc. for a lot cheaper than outside tourist attractions.

It's a good hotel - not amazing just standard.

Enjoy!

OMG This was a very bad experiance for me. I travel to Barcelona this weekend and hated this hotel. This was worst then a dorm room, I should ave stayed at a hostel. I paid $65 USD a night for 2nights and even if it was free I would not go there again. The room are EMPTY!!!!!! A thin sheet n what they called a blanket. a 10inch tv on the wall that you can see at all, all channels are in SPANISH, THERE WASNT EVEN A LOCK ON THE DOOR ON THE INSIDE. I actually had to put the chair under the door know and open the closet door next to the door to make my own inside lock. The bathroom had somuch water damage n leaking stains it was horrible. To top it off the room only had sheer see through curtains. I did not feel safe and I felt cold and disgusting in that horrible bed. It was so bad I only stayed the first night . The location was actually the only good thing about this place.

Room Tip: get another hotel
