        Location, 24h free buffet & drinks, excellent staff

        A bit run down, but under renovation and no big deal anyway

      • Older travelers

        Our stay at the Hotel Continenatl was for 3 nights prior to boarding a cuise ship. The service deliverd was excellent and every wim covered. Although a little qauint and not 1 st class interiors one didn't want for anything and location was ideal. Would definitely recommend and return in future.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        We feel well at this hotel, have stayed here before and will return. Situation is perfect and the prive is ok.

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        Your staff was very helpful. After my wife went into the hospital, I really appreciated not having to move to another hotel.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Location was great

        Free buffet not that great. Strange maze-like set up of hallways and rooms. Balcony off of buffet room was in back of hotel (kind of dark and dirty) - expected to be able to view Las Ramblas from this balcony but instead view of back of other buildings. Thought hotel was expensive.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        Central location for great sightseeing, Very friendly and helpful staff (They helped rescue jacket I left and offered to ship it.). Free snacks and beverages all day. Small and intimate atmosphere. Really liked this place and would definitely stay again.

        Access is a little awkward if you have lots of luggage since there is no place to park. Therefore would not recommend having a car if you plan to stay there. Room is also small if you have lots of luggage.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Friendly helpful and attentive staff. Access to free snacks all day. Very good position along Las Ramblas to enable easy access to all city and tourist sites, close access to transport connections, restaurants, bars and entertainment on the Ramblas and the 'Old Town'.

        Generally everything was a good standard, but my wife was in an electric wheelchair. This was no problem in the hotel, or indeed in the city, as disabled access was the best we had come across anywhere in any city. However, the step from the street to the hotel meant my wife had to leave her chair while I lifted it into the entrance lobby, but this was a minor problem (except at the end of a long and tiring day when I was exhausted from all the shopping and sight-seeing).

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Location right on Las Ramblas, the main walking street of Barcelona, the balcony overlooking the Ramblas, the friendliness of the staff, the free beer and wine plus snacks 24/7, comfortable beds, quaintness.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The location was excellent with a fantastic view over the rambla, the free internet with helpful and attentive staff made this a most enjoyable stay.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The location was excellent, the hotel catered for our weekend break perfectly with pleasant, if a little quirky rooms, helpful staff and the 24hr buffet was perfect for breakfast and those little snacks you fancy during the day or before you retire. The choice of drinks available was great and would be perfect for those with children, where such drinks can prove expensive if you have to keep buying them. Overall the buffet saved quite an amount of money on our overall stay.

        The balcony doors onto La Rambla did not seal properly resulting in all the street noise coming into our room. This made it quite noisy, especially during Friday night.

      • Family with children
        6.2

        Easy to get to as right on Las Ramblas - very good location

        Totally overpriced. Small room, awful decor. Third person had mattress on floor. Offers 24 hour buffet of inedible food - grey cornflakes etc. Had to go out for breakfast even though breakfast was included in inflated price.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Staff was helpful and the beds were good.

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        Very helpful staff.But no commemoration of George Orwell's stay there during the Civil War.I Shall not return to Barcelona because of pickpockets and the authorities' refusal to deal with them

        Too dear for the facilities offerred.

      • Group of friends
        5.4

        I liked the hotel location and 24 hours buffet

        I didnot like the cleanless of the room and the buffet.

      • Family with children
        7.4

        We were relocated to Hotel Continental Palacete, whic we found better than Barcelona as location. We liked the location and the buffet which we found very convenient.
