Sarria-Sant Gervasi, Barcelona, Spain

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A family-run boutique that is both affordable and elegant
  • Situated near Diagonal Avenue's shops and restaurants
  • Mini-fridges stocked with free bottled water on every floor
  • Modern rooms with parquet floors and flat-screen TVs
  • Bathrooms are spacious and clean
  • Superior rooms have balconies
  • Free Wi-Fi in the lobby; free wired Internet in rooms
  • Tour desk for car rentals

Cons

  • Rooms facing the front may experience street noise
  • Some bathrooms have glass doors, which means less privacy
  • The Garden Restaurant only serves breakfast
  • No pool or fitness center

Bottom Line

For those who wish to stay in an authentic Barcelona property for a decent price, the mid-range Condado Hotel will do nicely. This family-run boutique stands near the commercial hub of Diagonal Avenue, in an area that is residential and a bit removed from the main tourist action -- but not entirely devoid of nightlife. Front-facing rooms may experience street noise from late-night revelers, so light sleepers should request a room in the rear. All guest rooms offer wood floors, neutral tones, flat-screen TVs, and spacious bathrooms, while communal areas feature original moldings and classic furnishings. Great freebies -- including an unlimited supply of bottled water on all floors and Wi-Fi in the lobby -- add up to a solid value.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Outside of Barcelona's city center, near the commercial hub of Diagonal Avenue

The Condado Hotel is located near the commercial area of Diagonal Avenue, in a residential neighborhood that is a bit removed from the city center. This area is known for shopping, as well as some late-night clubs (which means front-facing rooms at the hotel may experience street noise). A Mercadona supermarket stands just in front of the hotel and various restaurants renowned for Spanish or international cuisine are within walking distance, such as Moncho's Barcelona and Casa Paloma. Some prestigious international medical centers are also nearby, including the Clínica Barraquer and Hospital Clínico. Most tourist spots are just a bit too far to easily reach on foot, but the hotel is located near bus stops and a metro station.

Barcelona is an eclectic city that is popular for its historic and remarkable architecture, vibrant club scene, and urban beaches along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The capital of the Catalan region, Barcelona speaks its own language -- literally and figuratively. Known for a frenetic pace, the city is full of modernist architecture, medieval history, quirky fashion, and endless tapas bars. Located on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, the city has a Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers.

  • 20-minute drive or 55-minute bus ride from Barcelona El Prat Airport (BCN)
  • 7-minute drive or 17-minute subway ride to Antoni Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia church
  • 9-minute drive or 16-minute bus ride to Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 9-minute drive or 27-minute subway ride to Placa Espanya public square and transportation hub
  • 14-minute drive or 40-minute ride via public transportation to the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC)
  • 15-minute drive or 25-minute ride via public transportation to Town Hall
  • 15-minute drive or 27-minute ride via public transportation to Barceloneta Beach
  • 15-minute drive or 30-minute ride via public transportation to the Barri Gótic (Gothic Quarter) for medieval architecture
  • 15-minute drive or 33-minute ride via public transportation to Columbus Monument

 Bottom Line

For those who wish to stay in an authentic Barcelona property for a decent price, the mid-range Condado Hotel will do nicely. This family-run boutique stands near the commercial hub of Diagonal Avenue, in an area that is residential and a bit removed from the main tourist action -- but not entirely devoid of nightlife.
