The location is PERFECT. The staff is friendly - the all day and night buffet with free wine and beer (not to mention ice cream) is really cool... the decor is OMG! PINK! and hideous wallpaper.. on EVERYTHING. After the initial shock we actually were amused by it. I'd say it;s so ugly it's pretty, but it's just ugly. Prepare... More

Dear Guest; We thank you for choosing the Continental Barcelona for your recently stay in the city of Barcelona. You are right in that our rooms are pink!

My family of four stayed at this hotel. The location was just a few steps from the metro, which was very nice since we arrived late by train. The doors are locked, and the front desk will buss you into the building, so security is really good. You make your way up by elevator or stairs around the elevator to... More

We stayed here for 1 night only (thankfully) and were encouraged by the generally positive reviews we had seen prior to visiting. I'm in no way a hotel snob but this place was nasty and my wife, who isn't particularly fussy about staying in 2* hotels, thought this was the worst hotel she'd ever stayed in. Location - this is...

This is a very pink hotel, with few frills but lots of facilities. The staff were friendly and very helpful and when i said I was cold, provided a heater.
