My friend and I stayed here for 1 night at the end of February. The location is absolutely fabulous and the staff were so helpful and friendly. The rooms were fine, very clean and very comfortable. They had breakfast style buffet and beverages available 24hrs which were all included in the price. I would definitely recommend this hotel we absolutely...

We spent 4 nights here in December to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. This hotel is ideal located very close to the square with the buses and train stations in touching distance. We were surprised by 2 of our friends who joined us on our 2nd day and the hotel gave us a lovely bottle of bubbly to celebrate. A...

We spent four nights in this delightful hotel. It took us awhile to figure out the layout with winding halls and doors that mysteriously opened. Once we figured it out it was easy to get around. We ate all of our breakfasts in the free 24 hour buffet enjoying cappuccino every morning. We often ended our day with a glass...

Great location right on Las Ramblas. The staff was friendly, spoke great English and was helpful. The room was a bit small but comfortable. They also provide a food bar and beverages. Iy was great to arrive after a long flight and be able to grab a bite without leaving the property. There is a very nice outdoor area that...

We stayed here for two nights. It's a great location a block from Plaza Catalunya and on Las Ramblas. We had a balcony and could see to the square and down the street. The room itself was quirky but clean. There is a self serve continental breakfast/snack room and you could eat in or on a terrace. The food itself...

We were a little non-plussed by the entrance which involves a narrow staircase or a lift. However, upon reaching reception, any doubts were quashed. The receptionist was friendly and efficient, telling us we had the requested double room overlooking La Rambla at the front. We were shown to our rooms by a member of staff; helpful as the hotel is...

Arrived at this wonderfully located old hotel to find we had been "upgraded" to a room with a balcony! Not too big a deal in January but the little balcony did afford a great view of La Rambla. Vivianne, at the front desk, is a treat...very helpful and fun. Apparently they are remodeling with work going on directly above our...

The Hotel Continental is located steps away from Plaza Catalunya. Our room directly faced La Ramblas which gave us the perfect people-watching view from our private balcony. Our room was spotless, if a bit cramped, and there are not traditional dressers in which to store folded clothes but that would not deter us from returning. Hotel staff were very friendly...

Don't let the dated décor in the lobby fool you. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and beautifully renovated. The 24-hour beverage and snack which included beer, wine, soft drinks, juice and coffee came in very handy as did the adjacent courtyard where they could be enjoyed. The location is perfect. Right on...
