Barcelona vacation

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Staff, location. The kids enjoyed the 24 hour buffet, we parents enjoyed sitting on the balcony taking in the street life below.
Cons: The beds could use an upgrade, on the stiff side. Also, the single room is not really big enough for four people to stay confortably.
Location: Hotel is situated in middle of town, close to everything!
The hotel is well situated in the middle of town, close to key tourist spots. Staff was extremely friendly, and very helpful. Hotel was smaller than expected, only two floors of high rise building. Room booked for four of us was billed as family size, but in actuality they put two twin cots in a normal size room and called it family. Our room was on front side of hotel, very busy and noisy street. We could see how some people would enjoy this, and frankly our teen age kids kids enjoyed the people watching.

Comfortable Hotel at the top of Las Ramblas

Posted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: The room, the staff and being able to have a cup of coffee or a piece of toast whenever you wanted to.
Cons: Some of the furniture is plastic patio wear. But, they do hide it well by using nice coverlets.
Location: It is perfectly located. It is not in the thick of Las Ramblas but at the top of it. Yet, you can walk to buses and subways. We walked everywhere.
My husband and I really enjoyed our 3 nights at Hotel Continental Palacete. The ceilings and decor are amazing. Our room had everything we needed and overlooked Las Ramblas. The bed was comfortable too. The staff were pleasant, accommodating and trustworthy. We accidentally went out one day and left the safe wide open. Everything was still in the safe, as we had left it. I would recommend this hotel for comfort and being close to everything without being in the middle of it all. It can be a little noisy at times, but didn't keep us up. The 24 hr. food and drink bar is a bonus. You don't have to rush out for a cup of coffee or a little snack. The hotel is kept immaculately clean. Good value for this charming hotel.

English speaking staff and 24 hour cafeteria

Posted Jun 1, 2014
Pros: Great staff and the cafeteria was very helpful. Not the greatest food provided BUT we were more then happy that it was provided
Cons: The hotel key is attached to a large wooden stick which was not convenient when having to leave the hotel. no shampoo/conditioner provided
Location: Right up above Las Ramblas tourist area, Great location and 25 minute walk to sagrada familia which also has other Gaudi work on the way.
Hotel staff was very friendly, helpful and spoke great english. When we first arrived we met Peter at the front desk who locked up our bags for free until we were able to check in and even showed us on a map the best way to get to Sagrada Familia and also pointed out tourist attractions on the route. One if the greatest perks of the hotel is the 24 hour cafeteria which did not have too much to eat but was nice to have for a snack, also included a cappucino machine, water, juice, wine, soda and beer which was all free! Our room was a bit on the smaller side but had everything we needed and also a small sitting area outside.

Pros: Location, Location, Location
The hotel is nice. Staff is very very helpfull. They helped in everything and always very welcoming. The bed was a bit hard, and the room was very small. However this small hotel is a nice place to stay.

Small room but nice hotel

Posted Jan 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
it's really a palace before, with spectacular interior and classic ballroom. the 24-hr buffet (don't expect anything different from a standard breakfast) is also nice for me as I worked mostly in the hotel on my stuff; location is convenient to anywhere as well

great place

Posted Dec 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
The main/meeting/dining room is really magnificent. Sitting there makes you feel you are in a museum or in some exclusive castle. Hotel staff is really friendly. An idea of 24 hour breakfast is great. You can even get some free beer or wine.

plus and minus

Posted Oct 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
1. Unfortunately there was loud music playing next door from 10 am. to 9 p.m. which made it difficult to have a siesta. Manager stated it was a new lingerie store which recently opened. 2. The hotel offered taxi service from the airport for two persons at 40Euro ... driver charged 50Euro! 3. Also taxi first stopped at the wrong Hotel Continental a few blocks away. Suggest not using this service as taxi would be cheaper and more reliable. Great location and the 24 hr lounge is a real plus.

Dear Guests, We thank you for your choice and feedback after your stay at our Continental Palacete hotel. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our location and our 24hours Free Snacking buffet! We are sorry for the noise you experienced during your stay (day time) effectively due to a new shop located in the building next to ours. Regarding the taxi fare, we also take this opportunity to inform travellers that at the entrance of any of our hotels and also at the entrance of any of the two terminals of our Barcelona airport and port, there is a taxi stop. The approximate cost to the city center from the airport and to the airport from the city center is about €.30 There is also a bus service called Aerobus that makes the same services for less than €6. (one way trip). When your travel plans bring you back to Barcelona, please do not hesitate to contact our staff should we bring any useful tips about our city. Always at your service, Viviane Komze and all the Staff.
