“At the Top of Las Ramblas”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

If you want to be at the Las Ramblas, but not disturbed by the non-stop activities there, then choose this hotel. It is literally at the top of Las Ramblas. The hotel offers a 24-hour buffet, included in your room cost. The only drawback with this is that it is the same food ALL the time. Okay, so take a coffee or a soda instead. It is good for a midnight snack or the late riser. The staff were quite helpful. If you want to be in the 'sea of humans' that never seem to have a low tide, then just step out of the hotel and cross the street, walk maybe one block and you are now officially part of that sea!! It is an older hotel, but quite comfortable.

My wife and I stayed here in August and I have no hesitation in recommending it. Vivien on the front desk was fantastic and the free beer and wine self service was awesome. We loved coming back to the hotel for lunch and having a couple of drinks whilst sitting on the balcony watching the world go by down on the street. The Gothic quarter is only 15 minutes walk away and the Tour Bus has a stop less than 2 minutes away.

Reviewed 12 August 2014

We stayed here five nights, Aug 6-11, 2014. The location is unbeatable...just two blocks north of the Plaza Catalunya, but away from the noisiest part of the Ramblas. Three Metro stops are two - three blocks away, which was very convenient. The public parts of the hotel are beautiful and well maintained. Our room was a bit of a disappointment, but that was largely our fault as we chose the least expensive option. We were in Room 128 which had no view, except of a block wall. That made the space dark and uninviting. Next time we will definitely upgrade to a room with a view. The staff goes out of their way to be helpful. Carlos, the night desk clerk when we were there, was especially gracious. He really was terrific! The 24 hour buffet came in very handy, especially for a quick "pick me up" between meals or at lunch. The ice cream machine and draft beer were both big hits with us! We definitely recommend this place!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view. Avoid interior rooms if you can.

Stayed here for 4 nights with a friend. The location is amazing. Walking distance from bus, train, las ramblas, marina etc. Hotel itself was very clean, took was perfectly fine and very comfortable. Didn't rate the 24hr buffet so ate out each morning. Staff were generally quite helpful just not up to the usual standard here in the UK. Overall highly recommend for a short break!

The building is beautiful, the location good, the staff very helpful, but the details are a big disappointment. The bathroom door is glass so if one person gets up first to shower the other is awakened by the bathroom light. There were only two plugs in the room we could use to recharge phones, cameras and iPad, and both had something plugged in to them. The tiny chest of drawers was plastic. The chairs were plastic lawn chairs. The buffet may have been good but food sitting out all day and night doesn't sound or look appealing. The AC was inadequate even for the tiny room. We would not return or recommend.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us here and for choosing us one more time.
We are sorry to read you were a little disappointed during your stay.

Regarding Our 24 hours FREE SNACKING BUFFET, we always strive to offer best quality products (more than 50 options available between a large variety of food and drinks) to ensure our guest satisfaction but unfortunately, it did not meet your expectations.

Hoping to have the opportunity to host you soon again.

Hotel in an excellent location and affordable price!! There is a free snack bar open 24/7 and can solve any "little hungry" throughout the day and night. There is hot food, cold, sweet, fruit, and even ice cream machine (!)
The room is small, yet compact and has everything that you could need, including a fridge and micro in room.
The staff members are very kind and always ready to help. There is a printer in the reception and a computer in the lobby which is open for guest's use (in addition to WIFI in all rooms).
The design of the hotel gives the feeling of a Renaissance palace, but there is no lift.
Highly recommended!

Dear Guest;
Thank you for choosing our Hotel Continental Palacete and for sharing with other travellers your kind opinion about our cleaning, food, staff and services.
We are delighted that you enjoyed our location directly in the Elegant Rambla de Cataluña Street.
We would like to bring an amendment to your information about the fact that our hotel has no lift. Our charming hotel features an original elevator guests will find after climbing a dozen stairs from the ground floor. This lift will take you directly to the first floor where most of the rooms are.

Thank you once again for your choice.

We have just finished two stays at this lovely property. Both were fantastic and contributed to our enjoyment of our trips to the amazing town of Barcelona.

If you are wondering whether you should stay here, read every positive review and know they are telling the truth.

The convenience of this location is nice but the shining gem is the staff and experience. I had read so much about pink and was looking forward to it. I did not feel it was over pink at all.

I had the feeling I was a queen living in her palace and the people passing by on the street were looking up and wishing they were me!!

The living room area became our family meeting point and was so relaxing and convenient.

You will have other choices to stay in the city but none will compare to this one.

We are still talking about it and can't wait to return.
