“pretty average”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Spend a week at this hotel in Barcelona with a female friend and my 3 years old boy, I known the city quite well but my friend book the place.
The hotel is pretty average, clean and modern, paying over 200 euros for a not very confortable bed for a lithe boy in a not very big room wasn't ideal, also the hotel charges about 12 euros for breakfast which I found a bit too much, you can go to any of the differents cafes close by and spend half of the money if not less for the same and also enjoy the company of the friendly locals.
I found most of the staff friendly, with a couple of grumpy unhelpfull ones but overall the staff were pleasent.
The wi-fi works well depending of which bit of the hotel you are in, good in the lobby but not access in our room, I imagine there will be other areas where the signal is better.
the AC doesn't seem to work.

The locations is ok, not really close to any metro station specially if you are with a young family.
Next time I would choose a hotel close to paseo de gracia, plaza cataluna or the areas a s a tourist you are going to visit.
Considering the price (900 euros for a week for 2 adults+3 years old) I would rather stay somewhere else, better location, better room, better facilities and breakfast.

Room Tip: ask for good wifi signal in your room rooms on the back of the hotel are quieter

Dear Sirs,
Thank you for your review which it will be very helpful for future visitors.

Unfortunately, your calculator does not work well. €900/ 7 days; the daily amount is much cheaper than one mentioned in your review.

Our triple rooms feature aprox. 25 m2. Same surface per person than a twin room.

Indeed, as in the vast majority of buildings, the wifi signal is not the same in every corner.

However, access is the minimum desired in all rooms. I would like to clarify that guest devices are important in this issue as the signal can be better or worse. Not only is the fault of the hotel's wifi coverage. At least, you did not pay for the service.

On the other hand, the air conditioning has not had any incidence throughout the year 2013. Did you ask how the control console in your room worked?

Obviously, your comment is given by your disappointment in the choice of your friend.

As you know well Barcelona's city, if you want to book a hotel near the Plaza Catalunya (I remind you that we are just four blocks from the elegant Passeig de Gràcia ) and better hotel with better facilities fix your calculator before booking .

If you want to resolve any questions or comments, please, you can easily find our email or our phone on this same site.

In any case, thanks for visiting Barcelona and I regret the disappointing choice of hotel by her friend.

Yours sincerely, Ignacio Casellas

We stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Condado in October. Our room was quiet, roomy and clean. The hotel was an easy 10 minute walk to the Metro; also there were buses within 2 minutes. Nearby, there were many bars and restaurants to choose from. The Front Desk staff were very helpful and friendly. We believe this hotel is a terrific bargain.

Room Tip: Our very quiet room was on the 7th floor, not facing the street. No view but peaceful.

We spent three nights at the Condado Hotel this September. Our room was very quiet and immaculately clean. The front staff were efficient, friendly and quit helpful in directing us on how to use public transit to get to Parc Guell. Cannot speak for the Continental Breakfast as we got up and walked each morning.

Location Location Location, this place was a real surprise. Loved my stay here....It is excellent for the money we paid and the location was amazing. Barcelona is a small city and this hotel is located in L'eixample which makes it easier to go to anywhere like Les Ramblas. It was also very close in that if we took a taxi to Port Olimpico(Can't rem the spelling), we only paid about 10 euros.
The hotel staff was extremely helpful especially with locations to places and how to use the bus service. They also helped a lot with services we requested.
The hotel is also very peaceful even though you have all those clubs that surround it. Well good thing is, you can just go party and when done, swing into your room and sleep the whole day.
Well i did not like the breakfast as much, so no need of spending 12 euros, lesson learned.
Amazing gem in the middle of Barca

We stayed here for nearly a week and enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel was in a great location if you don't mind walking a bit. We were located in between the main square and the main shopping district and each way took us 15 minutes. The hotel is very clean, modern, and quiet. They cleaned the room daily and the room had no funky stench. The beds were a bit hard, but that is expected when staying at any hotel anyway. We heard no noises coming from the passageway and no outside noise. The hotel offers free water throughout your stay which is awesome! I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to stay in Barcelona! To power up the room the hotel requires you to lock in your room key which is a bit inconvenient but that wasn't a major issue.

My son and i stayed here for a long weekend whilst visiting to see a barca game. Great hotel, and excellent value for money. Rooms are really nice, hotel is really clean, the staff at the desk are extremely helpful. I liked the location, my son and i walked about the entire city from here no problems, and about a 45 min walk to the camp nou. We're definitely going back to see more barcelona games, and we will be staying at this hotel every time. Not a bad word to say about the place. 10 out of 10 for me.
