Centrally located; good value
Posted Nov 28, 2016
The Continental is often one of the cheaper hotels on Expedia, but despite that (and its very central location just 5 minutes' walk from the Eurostar terminal and a similar distance from the historic centre), it's perfectly acceptable. My room was quite spacious, clean and with a reasonably modern bathroom (albeit with a tub that is of Japanese style size). There was a large flat screen TV, internet access was a little patchy, but usable, and the bed was OK, though with sheet and blanket rather than a duvet.
The included buffet breakfast (be careful, they may not realise it's been pre-paid) was excellent for the porice range, with a good range of pastries, juices, yoghurts, fresh bread, cheese/salami, apple puree, and a wide range of herbal teas as well as coffee.
Although I was facing out across the station square, it wasn't too noisy (apart from an early morning street sweeper on Sunday morning).
