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...

Hotel Continental has a great location. It is easily accessible by public transport ie. Metro stations & bus stops right at its doorstep. Shops, restaurants & entertainment areas are all within walking distance. The staff is friendly, helpful and always available when needed. The 24hr free buffet is a plus point. I will definitely come back to this hotel and...

Before I start this review I confess to some bias. We love Barcelona. The place and the people are superb and we particularly love La Rambla. So we booked a superior room with balcony for our one week stay. The reviews we saw were not great but the Continental match for location, facilities and price so we ignored them went...

This is the second time I have stayed at Hotel Continental. The decor is very interesting to say the least and would normally have put me off. However, the staff are very friendly and helpful with food and drinks available all day and evening. However what makes the hotel even more attractive is the location on La Rambla. It is...

I booked this hotel after a long search. Due to several negative feedbacks that I read, I was a little sceptical regarding the service and rooms, but I booked anyway, mainly because of its location. My wife and I, and another couple of friends, arrived to the hotel and on first sight, were very satisfied with the location. On the...

This property is located on Las Ramblas which is the main street in the Gothic district of Barcelona. It is at the north (top) end of Las Ramblas at Plaza Catalunya. At the plaza are beautiful fountains, hop on/off bus, city busses, subway station, department stores, restaurants, shopping, and more. The shuttle bus from Barcelona airport stops at the plaza....

I stayed at this hotel with my wife for an overnight stay in Barcelona. I arrived at the hotel about an hour and a half before the check in time but this presented no problems and check in was quick and efficient. The hotel is a little unusual having reception / rooms on the first floor with further rooms on...

We had a nice comfortable and clean room. The beds are really nice. The staff is very attentive and can answer most questions. Great location on La Rambla. Even though La Rambla is noisy the room is quiet. Free breakfast with fruit and snacks available 24 hours. A good base in Barcelona and good value for the money. I would...
