Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Continental Barcelona
Good value for money
The hotel has a great location and affordable room rates. Refreshments are served 24h/day for the guests, it's included in the price. Some rooms are very small with a wall view. Also try their new hotel on the other side of Placa de Catalunya, Continental Palacita: better breakfast/refreshments but bit more expensive room rates. More quiet location but still in the very center. Facilities are better. Both are quite cosy and have a friendly staff.
Good Hotel in the right location
Right at the heart of things Great Hotel on the Ramblas.All day continental breakfast,clean rooms some with balcony.Will come back again.Only down side was that the staff need to SMILE more
Most unhelpful staff
The staff know absolutely NOTHING.the blonde woman is the WORST, she refuses to look up frm her desk and keep eye-contact, cannot speak a word of english, other that 'I dont know,I dont speak english', and as it was the festival - La Merce, all the shops in barcelona were closed, hence i enquired about a mall outside barclonea which she said would be open but refused to call them to check, so we made a trip to GranVia 2 ( the mall) which was SHUT. the guy with dark hair is slightly more helpful but overall the staff lets this hotel down.
Great location - nice people
This hotel is very charming with a cosy atmosphere and very clean rooms. We stayed there end July/beginning of August during the heatwave and although there only is a tropical fan and no air condition, the fan did the job very well. We enjoyed our little balcony with a wonderful view of the Rambla with it's buzzing life night and day. Value for money!
Wonderful people watching
First time to this city, was amazed by the friendliness of the people. Hotel Continental was a well kept place. Room 241 is large, has a great balcony view of street life 40 feet below. We were serenaded over Christmas 2002 by Peruvian street musicians and birdsong in the morning. Breakfast was buffett: kiwi fruit, toast, coffee, tea,choice of cereal, hardboiled eggs, cookies. Anytime lounge with free travel books and comfy seats. You don't even have to speak Catalonian. Will definitely come back.
Hotel Continental is great!
This hotel is located about half a block from Catalunya Square. The staff was friendly and spoke english well, and the room was great - the balcony facing La Rambla could not be beaten. The room did not appear to have air conditioning though, so if you're going in mid summer it might be too hot.
Stayed here in 1999. Found it by accident. Arrived in Barcelona without hotel reservations just walked up and down Las Ramblas until we found a place at the right price with the right amenities. Very clean, very nice staff, great price, GREAT location! We will stay here again.
Great budget hotel
Hotel Continental was great! Prime location, very helpful staff. Went in Nov. so the street noise was tolerable. Small rooms but would definantly return again.
Get it in writing...
Watch out for this hotel. I cancelled my reservation a full month before my scheduled visit and they 'conveniently' had no record of my cancellation and charged my credit card for a night at their hotel. Be sure to get everything confirmed in writing from them - Don't make the same mistake I did and trust them.
Cheap, cheerful and very central
I found this hotel to be cheap, cheerful, clean and ideally situated in the very heart of Barcelona - just perfect for sightseeing and exploring this beautiful city.
The hotel is nothing spectacular, but you can't ask for a better location or a better deal.
I recommended it to a friend and they were very happy with the Hotel Continental too.
I wouldn't hesitate in staying there again, and would definitely advise anyone wanting decent accommodation, at a reasonable price, to check out this hotel. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

We arrived in Barcelona! We got here at 9:40 am local time (after leaving Miami at 7pm the evening before), took our bags to the hotel, and headed out. We got some lunch at a local cafe (by the time we got through the airport and customs and got into town it was basically lunchtime). We’re staying near Plaza Catalunya and La Rambla.

... and I was getting a little uneasy. I was pretty sure this was leading to a definite 'Taken' situation, and I politely excused myself and headed back to the hostel. He had told me, however, that he only approached me because "I looked local", so the only thing I took away from that was that I looked like the Penelope Cruz's younger sister, and almost skipped home, ignoring the fact I was pretty sure he was trying to lure me into the sex trade.
... pretty windy so we only went by the water to feel it. Freezing. And very wavy. Its a long beach, consisting mostly of old people. I'm sure during the weekend its a younger crowd. We were sitting down taking in the scenery when we saw a man taking a shower just take off his trunks and change into his dry clothes. My fellow spaniards is this normal? Lol Anyway we kept walking all down the beach. The people do seem so care free here. We saw one fellow law enforcement take two ...
... you get to the top you overlook the entire city of Barcelona. Another amazing, amazing site.
After the park we headed straight to the beach. Finally, a little bit of home! We went to Mar Bella, which was indeed bella. It was also surprisingly clean. The water was way too cold and reminded me of the Jersey Shore temperature. But I'm glad I finally got to stick my toes in the Mediterranean. At night, we went down to the beach to ...
