“Different, but Enjoyable”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Extremely well located; close to transportation, local sightseeing, shopping, restaurants,etc. Located right on Las Ramblas. Stayed 3 nights, pre-cruise. They had friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are a bit worn and quirky, and very PINK, however other then that it is all good. We would certainly stay there again. Hotel has a buffet (limited selections) and bar of soft drinks, wine and beer that is accessible 24 hours a day. Building is old, as are most all buildings in the area; but it has a nice history. From airport to hotel you can take the Aerobus; it is about a 3 minute walk from bus stop to Hotel. This is not a 5 star "Hollywood" style hotel but it has all the facilities to meet your needs. Experience Barcelona. . , experience the Hotel Continental.

Room Tip: Rooms in front overlook the street; it is more quiet away from the street. The front rooms have sma...

Traveling solo for a pre-cruise stay, hotel worked great for me. Perfect location on Las Ramblas. Grocery store across street to stock up on wine, etc. Close to airport bus stop for those able to manage luggage. Hotel room was small but comfortable, fine for me. I did not like the high bathtub..was holding on for dear life.

Free wifi available, as well as two computers in lobby and landing. High marks for the buffet. The beer was ice cold and very tasty. Didn't try the wine. The baked goods were excellent. My expectations were quite low based on some reviews but I was very pleased with the choices available. Nice areas for for lounging and hanging out with others.

Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the porter, who seemed to be everywhere.
I would definitely stay here again.

Located really close to Plaza Catalunya. You couldn't ask for a better location right on Las Ramblas. Security is really great and I had to even get buzzed in to get to my floor. Rooms are small but have everything you need except real bars of soap. They have the "lotion" available but I suggest you bring your own shampoo. The food bar was nothing to write home about but it's available and you don't get this at most hotels.

Overall, a good experience.

Reviewed November 19, 2013

we stayed in there for a week , as a family vacation in three different type of rooms:
twin beds la Rambla balcony room.
double bed interior balcony room.
single interior room.

there is a lot of advantages in such a little average hotel

PROS:

1-LOCATION!!! you are in the center of everything ... exactly on la Rambla and few steps to placa catalunya.also all the attraction are accessible by metro, and it is in the middle of the shopping area .
2-security system is great and safe.
3-the 24 hours open buffet is a good positive gesture.
4-the service is great with a super helpful staff .
5-rooms are small but well managed.
6-view from balcony on la Ramla is superb .
7-my 1st night we had to stay in an interior room which had a terrible view and the 2nd day we switched to a bigger room with a balcony overlooking the hotel patio,
8- good to have a free WI-FI

CONS:

1- i found a little tiny cockroach in the bath on the first day and another one on my last day.
2- TV is soooo high so you can't see it well. also if it is a hotel in a touristic place and you are expecting a lot of tourists so why 99% of the channels are Spanish ???
3- the bathtub is very high so i guess it is dangerous for older people.
4-the decor is not very nice at least for me... dark walls and pink furniture is not convenient with a hotel.
5- rooms overlooking La Rambla are very noisy till late night.

if i'll visit Barcelona again ,, i'll definitely choose Continental hotel again.

Dear Guest,
thank you very much for your nice feedback, we appreciated all the pros and cons of your feedback.
We are happy to hear that we will probably receive you again in the future.

Regarding the cockroaches in your bath, we would like to mention that we perform periodically the disinfection in all the internal and external areas of the hotel in order to prevent creatures as cockroaches, mice and other living beings that are part of our nature.
But unfortunately, in such a strategic place where lives people from all corners of the world, it is not always posible to ensure the success of such measures.
We would like to take this opportunity to request the help of all our future guests: please do not hesitate to contact inmediately our front desk when this type of incidence happens.(Frontdesk s available 24 hours/day just by dialing the "9" from the rooms). Your collaboration is vively requested to help us improve our service. Thank you in advance.
We will continue striving to prevent such incidents at the hotel. sorry for this inconvenience.

Always at your service,

Not a luxury accommodation but certainly comfortable and convenient. Very good location - on Las Ramblas with convenient transportation to and from airport nearby. Front desk was extremely helpful and courteous. Hotel lobby and rooms are located on 2 or 3rd floor of the building (has lift). Room was clean (pink) and bed very comfortable. Air-conditioning worked excellent. 2 hotel computers for guests to use and Wi-Fi worked great. Bathroom clean and water pressure perfect. Only disappointment was the buffet - pretty sparse. Overall, a decent place to stay in Barcelona and very convenient to everything. Price is definitely because of location... but I'd stay there again.

Situated at Las Ramblas and Placa Catalunya you are close to, restaurants, metro, bus, and walking distance to many attractions.
The rooms were clean and good sized considering central location in a large metropolitan city.
The buffet was convenient - particularly for breakfast - if not outstanding. The staff was friendly, helpful, knowlegeable and booked a great tablao for us.
Good value and location
