Review Condal Hotel Barcelona

Page Content

Hotel Condal
Hotel Condal Barcelona is a clean and affordable hotel 100 metres from the centre of the Ramblas. For a lot of people travelling to the city, this may be the ideal description of what they are hoping to find, in terms of accommodation. It is not surprising then that this is a popular hotel.

It is clean, decorated simply and lacks the seediness that some of the other hotels close to the Ramblas can display. The lobby area is bright, with light marble floors and a wooden front desk. Although the exterior is old, the interior appears to have been refurbished reasonable recently.

The corridors along which the rooms run face a bright courtyard space, allowing for much light to come through the large windows. This helps to make the small spaces feel light and makes the most of smaller spaces.

The hotel provides the basic amenities in a location that is perfect for those who wish to be at the heart of Barcelona's touristic centre.
