On arrival at the hotel, we were a bit perplexed at how to get into the hotel (we finally figured out that you go up to the 3rd level where the check-in desk is located). Our room had a balcony overlooking Las Ramblas and we enjoyed eating and just watching the constant flow of people up and down the street.... More

We've stayed at both this hotel and the Continental Palacete before, so we knew what to expect. It's a very nice hotel, with well-equipped rooms, a 24 hour buffet and a fantastic location. Our room was on the 3rd floor rather than the main floor, so using the lift was a bit fiddly. On the other hand, the room was... More

My husband and I have stayed three times in Hotel Continental, twice just us and once with the whole family (11 persons). We all love the kitchy atmosphere, the 24 hours buffet, the service and the location.

Barcelona isn't cheap. In saying that, this hotel is good value given it's amazing location. However, I really wasn't prepared for the decor - the hallways are floor to ceiling floral wallpaper, and the room was floor to ceiling pink. By floor to ceiling I literally mean the floor and the ceiling as well - so we had a bit... More

Absolutely perfect hotel for our needs. Located just off Las Ramblas, this hotel offered a suite with a balcony that was just off of the huge foyer. The staff was exceedingly pleasant and helpful, the room was spacious with a nice ensuite bath, and there was food and drink available all day long every day. The location and charm of... More

We had a lovely time in Barcelona, and Hotel Continental was the perfect choice. The location is fantastic- at the top of La Rambla near Placa Catalunya. Note that there are 3 hotels sharing the building. If you arrive in the evening, the right bell to buzz for entry is on the right side. Once in the elevator, look for... More
