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.
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.
