Convenient, and comfy

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed May 11, 2019
Taxi to hotel from ship was quick and only $30. Elevator is very slow, but eventually gets you where you want to go. Our room was on the 2nd floor. I was worried about street noise, but there was none. Just the warbling of the pidgeons outside the window. We had an inside room and although small, it served the purpose. They provided a complimentary breakfast and lunch and dinner. Dinner was the same as the lunch. Also complimentary wine and beer and frozen yogurt. We would stay here again but upgrade the room.

OK this is a personal review so contains my views which i accept may not be the views of others, in fact i know this to be true as i have read other reviews before booking this. First impressions were not good at all, the hotel shares it's entrance, stairway and lift with 2 other establishments, at least one of which is a Hostel. This does not make it very secure but with the inclusion of Massive security doors to each floor which are controlled by reception with the help of security cameras and buzzers. These are also controlled by reception for you to leave your floor, which does feel very much like a lock down and something i was not a fan of. The smell of the corridor on the third floor is that of an old musty building. However once in the room, it is very clean and has everything you need with an amazing shower. I'm not a novice traveller at all but everything about this hotel was disappointing for the price we had paid. Our previous 2 trips to Barcelona represented much better value for money although i didn't write reviews back then. Maybe the "All inclusive buffet" will change my mind? No. plastic cups with drinks dispensers for various soft drinks, water, Red and White wines, juice and San Miguel beer. Not a fully stocked bar but it actually was adequate and grew on me as the days went by. As for the food Breakfast was a good cold selection with overcooked eggs 3 ways as the hot option, evening meal was Pasta and meatballs 2 days on the bounce. Location is excellent.

I have been coming to this hotel for a number of years and it has not disappointed yet. Its location is just perfect, a short stroll from the Aerobus arrival spot in Placa De Catalunya (less than 5 minutes to the hotel) - rooms with balcony are a must if possible but if no balcony is available its not the end of the world. Las Ramblas is right outside the door, 24 hour buffet (very minimal) but enough to get a good snack no matter how late your arrive. There is beer, wine, tea, coffee, ice cream etc on tap so not lacking for anything. Rooms are large and beds very comfortable. Rooms have a fridge if you wish to bring in your own drinks. I have seen numerous guests bringing in takeaways - snacks - etc and no problem. I have stayed in a few hotels on Las Ramblas over the years but still gravitate back to the Continental Hotel. No hesitation in recommending it just don't expect luxury.

The hotel is in a great location on La Rambles, just around the corner from the Aerobus stop on Plaza Catalunya, close to everything. We had a balcony room and enjoyed sitting and great view from above to Ramblas. Very convenient 24 hour buffet specially for late night snacks. Good air conditioning and extraordinary pleasant and friendly staff.
I have already booked my next stay for Easter holidays.

This was our first visit to Barcelona and I have to say that the hotel Continental was a great place to stay. The hotel was recommended to us by friends and this turned out to be a good recommendation.

It is really easy to get to the hotel from the airport and we used a combination of train and Metro to arrive there. There is a metro station literally right outside the hotel!

The Hotel Continental is located on the Las Ramblas which is the main strip in Barcelona and as such is a great place to stay and explore the rest of Barcelona from. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were comfortable, my wife particularly noted how comfortable she found the beds.

The deco is a little old-fashioned, but I actually found this quite endearing by the time we left. There is also an outdoor terrace which was quite nice as the weather was getting warmer when we visited.

An added bonus with this hotel is that there is a free 24-hour buffet. Having our three boys with us we found this to be a great bonus and they helped themselves to the buffet and drinks (hot drinks, soft drinks, beer, wine) any time we were in the hotel. The buffet is not overly complicated, mainly bread, cheese, ham, pastries, marmalade and jams and some cooked items for breakfast from 6am (eggs and sausage). There are toasters and microwaves, and bean to cup coffee machines.....the coffee was VERY good!!!!!

The bedrooms (we had two adjoining) were comfortable and had either a shower, or bath. If I were to choose again I’d go for the shower option.

The rooms were well equipped with TV, hair dryer, fridge and even a microwave. You can help yourself to the buffet and drinks and take up to your room if you wish.

Both of our rooms had balconies overlooking Las Ramblas, which was quite nice.

In summary I would definitely stay here again if I were to return to Barcelona as I found the location to be ideal, the rooms comfortable, the staff friendly and the buffet just an added bonus to staying here!!!!

Great location. Well equipped bedroom with a fridge which you are welcome to fill from their 24 hour buffet. The buffet was a great surprise with wine and beer on tap, salads, cold meats and fruit. We paid a little more to have a balcony, ours was overlooking the outdoor dining area at the back but we did get the opportunity to sit overlooking the Ramblas as there is a balcony off the reception. Couldn’t recommend it enough, but maybe not perfect for people with mobility issues as there are lots of corridors.

Room tip: Get a balcony, either in the front or back.
