“Great Value”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

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.

Excellent location, friendly staff, clean and comfortable - basic, but to be expected at the very reasonable price!

The location is great, seconds from La Rambla, but if you're going to be coming back to the hotel in the early hours that can mean having to be careful to avoid some dodgy characters on the main street on the way back... heard a few people asking for directions to the police station due to pickpockets! This was my only concern, which was nothing to do with the hotel itself.

If looking for somewhere cheap, basic, very central and friendly (particularly if you'll be heading back to the hotel by midnight / 1am when still busy in the area) then definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Go for the high rooms on the side away from the main street as quieter

Dear guest,

First of all, thank you for taking the time to share your experience on you stay at the Hotel Condal.
Regarding your comments about the area, we have to keep in mind that we are in the most central place of Barcelona, ​​and as in any big city beware of pickpockets, but also in this area there are more police.

We hope we can welcome you back during your next visit to Barcelona.

This 2* hotel was recommended by a friend who stays there often. There was a relativelky 'new' chap on Reception when I arrived mid evening who could offer no price reduction at all from the steep rate I had hurriedly clicked on when I reserved a single room a week earlier. Ok, my fault, but he wasn't very helpful.
The bathroom was fine and the shower ran nice and hot quickly. The single bed was comfy and sheets good quality white cotton. Noisy people were passing a few feet below my 1st floor bedroom window, some shouting at 3am. But the sliding window was double glazed and worked well.
A very friendly man called Oscar was at Reception in the morning and he was delightfully pleasant.
