“Friendly and easy going place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

I recently visited casa consell with a friend for a city trip. The hosts were so friendly and we're extremely helpful. We felt comfortable and at home within the hostel especially during a massive rain storm. Only thing was that it would have been nice to have been informed of a bunk bed room before arrival. They advertise as a hostel but I would say that they are closer to a classic bed and breakfast.

Stayed July 2014

Booked 3 nights in this hotel, but in the end, only stayed 2.
It's too noisy and the curtains do not block any light from outside during the night.
After two sleepless nights on a (very very) hard matress I booked another hotel.
My single room was about 4*2m in size, with a fan that had had better times.

The staff was very friendly and I guess this explains the high ratings on tripadvisor.
My score:
Quality vs price: 3/5
Quality (not taking into account the price): 1

We chose Casa Consell for our sorry break to Barcelona and were not disappointed.

Upon check out we were given a warm welcome and an overview of what was on offer in the local area.

The room was basic and clean. Worthy note us there is no safe or air conditioning in the room, but shutters and decent windows that keep the heat outside. We were given two sets of keys for the three of us which worked out well.

Finally the location is excellent, very close to the city centre with all of its offerings.

This is the only place to stay in Barcelona! Just of Passeig De Gracia it is located in the center of the city, very close to restaurants and the metro line- however as it is just tucked away it is very quiet and peaceful. Although the security in Barcelona is often questioned, here you feel that you and your belongings are safe- not worrying about leaving the windows open at night. The rooms are lovely and clean, along with the bathrooms, which although are shared, had no wait for them with three next door to our room. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge space and a lovely continental breakfast to start the day. Staff are lovely; very welcoming and friendly. Overall a brilliant place to stay- can't wait to come back!

I booked accommodation here on the basis of the reviews it received on TA. I wasn't disappointed. My husband & I stayed 5 nts in an ensuite room (Rm 6) in mid-June. I received a reminder email including directions on the metro lines. The email should've also said that CC is located on the first floor/Principal (a small elevator is available). Anyway, check-in was smooth with Stewart. So much is said of security in Barcelona - well, the suburb of L'Eixample was very kind to us - we were able to take full advantage of an open window at night for comfort & we felt secure at all times. An overhead fan was invaluable. No complaints about the bedroom or ensuite. Sleep quality was good - we may have been disturbed by some night owls returning from a night of carousing or by some folk having early showers for early departures - but that was momentary. Continental b/f is provided - tea/coffee, cereal, juice, bread & spreads. Guests have the full use of the kitchen & they are allocated space in the refrigerator as well. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfasting in the fresh air on the terrace. Only a short walk to Passaig de Gracia metro station (which links to other lines) as well as to the train station which connects with T2 at the Airport. Also a short walk to La Sagrada Familia, La Rambla, Placa Catalunya. And CC is well located - close to supermarkets as well as a couple of large markets, good restaurants & a laundromat is close by. Good wifi & a couple of computers are available for guests' use as well. But best of all, the welcoming & helpful staff members are always available/ready to assist with recommendations & advice. A fabulous finale to our Spanish holiday! Highly recommended & a huge thanks to Stewart, Luz, Francisco & the rest of the team!!

Everyone at Casa Consell makes you feel this way all the time (even after checkout!). Fab facilities incl. cooking area, fantastic common area, great location 1 minute from surface and metro, 2 minutes to La Ramblas and markets, 5 minutes to Ravell (the most interesting area for us), 10 minute walk to Sagrada Família and Gaudi stuff. Wifi could be reliable on the upper floor, but hey , we would like to recommend Casa Consell as highly as possible. Can't wait to get back ...

Room Tip: We like very much the double rooms (x2) with balconies to the street ...

We look for simple, clean, inexpensive, reliable accommodations close to where we want to be. Casa Consell fit those needs perfectly. The kitchen was easy to use and common area was peaceful. What we didn't expect was a staff that was so helpful and accommodating to our modest needs towards orientation, wifi, ticketing and the like. Thanks for the tips to Luc (?sp pronounced 'Loose') for sights and food. This location, close to the Gaudi sites and Ramblas makes sightseeing a real ease.
