“Served a purpose”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

I was booked into the Don Candido for a two night whilst on a business trip in Terrassa. Approximately 45 minutes from Barcelona Airport.
Check in was quick and I was allocated sixth floor double room overlooking the road in front of the hotel.
I had an entrance lobby with a large wardrobe containing the safe, bathroom with over head shower, the bedroom was large and also contained an additional single bed.
The decor looked a bit tired around the edges as did all the furniture. The minibar was stocked with over price drinks - nearly £3 for 250ml Coke! The poorly tuned TV was watchable but the only English speaking channel listed in the hotel guide was missing.
But a least the it was quiet and the bed very comfortable.
A breakfast buffet was served in the Mun restaurant. Cold meats, bread, fruit, cereal and a poor attempt at a cooked breakfast. I did take a look at the evening menu but found the food combinations very odd and overpriced. Only a couple of local restaurants nearby, a tapas bar next door and around the corner a Chinese (which I had to myself but the food was actually quite good!). It appear the hotel once had a disco in the basement.
Would I use it again - not for a personal trip, but only for a very short return business trip as I found it very boring in the evenings.

Dear guest, thank you very much for the detailed description of your stay. We took note of your remarks to improve on the aspects discussed. You are correct that is a quiet business hotel, it would be great if the next time coincides with some of the activities we do as after works or pilates classes exclusive to hotel clients. The hotel offers a bike free of charge you can use to walk around the city center. Referring to MUN Restaurant, located inside the hotel, I would like to inform you that there is a daily menu for only € 14.50. Although combinations may seem strange, I encourage you to try it, I am convinced that will pleasantly surprise you :-). Feel free to contact us if you are planning your next visit to Terrassa and we will help you. Kind regards, Rosa Maria Sas.

The Don Candido is a pleasant hotel. Rooms are basic but comfortable. Rooms on the front can be noisy but rooms at the rear are much quieter. Dinner in the restaurant is of good standard but it generally promises more than it delivers. I had the salmon and squid which was good but not 'haute cuisine'. Breakfast is also pretty basic.
Staff are very helpful and most speak English.
Overall a comfortable and clean hotel ideally suited for business or short stay leisure travellers.

For a business trip I was with my wife in Terrassa. We stayed in hotel Don Candido a four star hotel with friendly personnel. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, fish and enlish breakfast. The restaurant offered good dinners for a good price.

The bathroom was equipped with a rainshower and was very clean. I can recommend this hotel in Terrassa. Further on there is a beautiful spa and welnesscenter in the hotel (with additional costs)

This hotel is just a 10 minute walk from the centre, has free Wi-Fi (although with some difficulties connecting our iPhones) and comfortable beds. The decoration and the amenities could use a refresh, but the staff was helpful and friendly. Overall, don't expect a real 4-star experience, but I would still be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the busy street, as it was a bit noisy in the morning with traffic.

At least we couldn't find any others in the central part of town. Any way its a very pleasant hotel , built for the occasion of the Barcelona Olympics. the Volleyball was held in Terrassa.
The prices are reasonable , staff pleasant and helpful, comfortable rooms, building is elegant modernist hotel rather well done , and has dated respectably. I found nothing to fault.
Do reviews have a date? this is 2013, because a few of the other Terrassa hotels on Tripadvisor have closed. I couldn't tell from the reviews.
Terrassa is suffering from the economic downturn, but we found much to enjoy here. Lovely market , great restaurant, La Picoteca , some interesting buildings and no tourist crush.
I'd reccomend this place to any one.
