“Basic and good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

I stayed with 2 friends at this hotel and we picked it primarily because of the location - we wanted to be as close to Ramblas as possible. It is very close to the Liceu metro in the middle of the tourist district and next to the Boqueria market. So it was a good place to have breakfast in the morning at the market before setting out for the day. We wanted a room for 3 people and they had a triple with 3 single beds which worked really well for us. The room was really basic but everything was neat and clean. The staff were very helpful too with information on places to eat and sightseeing information.

We stayed here for four nights and were not dissappointed.
In a fantastic position. Very, very close to the Metro and importantly the Mercat Bouquerio.
What a sensational place that is. Definitely take your appetite.
This hotel is great. Our room faced the narrow street in front. Staff were extremely helpful. In the most interesting art of Barcelona. Excellent value for money.

My view is in the name! I had booked this hotel through Booking.com and arrived in the evening. The night receptionist greeted us with the lead passengers name and check in was quick. However, on waking up the next day a different receptionist asked to see our booking form and said that we weren't on the system and should be in SALAMANCA... On the other side of Spain! When we questioned this and explained we had booked by searching "Barcelona" and not the specific hotel name he suddenly could not understand any english and my broken spanish did not help. Now maybe it is not the hotels fault but how would the other receptionist know the lead guests name before we had even walked into the building? I also am disappointed that they did not inform us the evening we arrived as we were in Barcelona to see friends and could have crashed with them for a night rather than pay for our room twice!! That aside the hotel was ok, if they weren't on a money spinner probably would have given them a 3. Good location near to La Boqueria and generally clean! We did have a problem with our wardrobe door, which was not fixed but nothing major that we couldn't live around.

Room Tip: The floors to the room are glass so watch out if you don't like heights etc.

I spent a couple of days and nights here as a lone woman traveller. Felt safe and secure in the hotel, and also around it because it's on a busy side-street just years from La Rambla. For the price I don't think one could do much better. It's basic but clean and when you're not spending much time there it's fine. My tv didn't work and the man in charge changed it without any fuss. The staff seemed a bit put-upon, suspect they have loads to do, but all were very helpful when they could be. If you're a couple going for a romantic weekend then this probably isn't the place for you. It did the job for what I wanted, which was to nip to Barcelona, have a look at it, then fly home. Barcelona is well worth a weekend, there's loads to see and do, it's an exciting, vibrant, safe and friendly world city.

Room Tip: Specify you'd like a quiet room - I did, and they gave me one at the back where there was no tra...

Everything was great.Only one minus is too noisy at the night.
The personal is very helpful and speak English well. Rooms are quite small however you will only sleep there that's why it is enough. Recommend!

I inadvertently ended up at this hotel after a burglary in a rented apartment nearby. It was basic, but clean and tidy, with very comfortable beds. Also, a safe was provided. There was a 24 hour manned desk, the staff were friendly and helpful, and it was right in the Gothic area, on Bouqueria, which runs off La Rambla. It isn't 5 star, but if you simply want a place to retreat to, this is well worth the cost.

Room Tip: Only downside was that the airconditioning had all been turned to heat, in readiness for cooler weat...

We have just got back from a stay at Hotel Codal. The room was basic and old fashioned but extremely clean and the location - just a few seconds walk off La Rambla and a couple of minutes from the Metro station - was worth much more than the bargain price that we paid.

The room was small and hot (the air-con seemed to push out hot air on the 'cold' setting) and with the window open it was fine but it was very noisy on the street. This didn't bother us but some people might be irritated by it. The view out of the window was the neighbouring hotel's lift, this again did not bother us.

The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke good English (as with most of the City's residents) though we didn't see the bar/cafe open once during our two night stay.

We would stay at Hotel Condal again if we ever return to Barcelona, particularly if the rates stay this low.
