Stayed three nights at this hotel last week. The room was a bit old & dark, but the bathroom was clean & tidy. Since we went out sightseeing during daytime, we didn't demand too much. The location was super and there was a 24-hour food counter at lobby which we enjoyed so much after a tiring exploration. There was also... More

Can't beat the La Rambla location, easy access from the Airport and train station. We do not mind the activities of the street and the balcony was awesome. After a long day of exploring we could take 24hr complimentary wine/beer, espresso or even ice cream up to our room and people watch. One note WIFI signal not too strong but... More

My wife and I had a couple of extra days in Barcelona after a Mediterranean cruise, and we decided to stay in the middle of the action in Barcelona in the Hotel Continental. The location was perfect...just a short walk to everything. The Ramblas is a downtown walkway that has thousands of people, and our balcony at the hotel overlooked... More

The hotel is very old and confusing to navigate from your room to the front desk or buffet. I found it difficult to get in and out of the tub because it was so high. The buffet was not as extensive as it looked on the internet. The beds were hard and you had better like pink because everything in... More

First time in Barcelona and we were not disappointed, we stayed for 5 nights at Continental Hotel. Location was perfect whether you wanted a busy sight seeing holiday[metro outside hotel] or a beach holiday [the beach was a pleasant 1/2 hour stroll]. Lots of choice at breakfast, 24 hr buffet was convenient whether it was a quick snack or a... More

This hotel is a good home base for getting around on Barcelona by foot. We stayed in the quad room (family of 4 people). We had a room facing the back, and even from there we heard noise, but it was fine for us. The airconditioning was not working well at all, and the fan was hanging by a thread,... More

Firstly the rooms with a balcony are really noisy even with the doors closed. I mean noisy all the time. Las Ramblas never sleeps. Take a room at the back. No view but much quiter if you want to sleep at night. The pink is not as bad as reviews make out. The rooms and hotel is a bit dated,... More

Okay, the interior needs lots of updating, but the location is great, the staff super friendly, and your right near the metro and the aerobus to the airport. given the price point, i would definitely recommend in order to stay in such a great location. i would not use the food bar as a reason to stay (or not stay)...

The hotel is conveniently located on the Ramblas and adjacent to the Placa de Catalunya. The room was nothing to write home about, but it was clean, and had a mini fridge and microwave. The distinguishing characteristic is the 24/7 food bar in the lobby. You can get breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus ice cream and beverages any time you... More
