Spent 4 nights in this lovely hotel in mid May. It was a treat for our anniversary and really glad we decided to push the boat out and book this 5 Star hotel. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel so welcome. The rooftop bar/infinity pool is a great place to chill out for a few hours...

Great place to stay, staff warm and welcoming, from bellboys to concierges, front desk, managers, all great.....EXCEPT::: waiters and waitresses at both restaurants, both the one for breakfast and the outside restaurant, slow, bad attitude, didn't have a good time there.

From the moment we arrived, the service at Grand Hotel Central was outstanding. No surprise it has a Clef D' Or Concierge named Mauro, who was a great help. Alonzo at the front door was also very helpful as was Adriane ("Addy") and Hector. All of them remembered our names every time we saw them. We were staying for four...

This is a review purely of the rooftop as I didn't stay in the hotel - but the rooftop bar is really worth a visit. We went twice in 5 days, 3 times if you include when it was closed! It can get busy so if you want to be safe I would reserve a table. Service is good, drinks...

Grand Hotel Central is a very nice hotel on an interesting locatio. The rooftop with pool and bar is wonderful and cosy. There is a perfect hosting and a very kind staff in the hotel. When returning to Barcelona, we probably book the same hotel.

Hotel is well situated on a main street in Barcelona, near the Cathedral and old town. The rooms are small, but well done and tight around the bed. Staff were very kind, but I did they were a bit understaffed at reception, and in a bit of a flurry when we arrived, but it's obvious they're trying hard to keep...

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Central for a 2 day stay in Barcelona. In short, we were not disappointed. The hotel is extremely central in Barcelona. As a first time visitor, everything was in walking distance, or a cheap taxi ride away. The hotel checked us into a room where the street adjoined the very busy Via Laietana. The...

We stayed for 3 nights. Awesome location. Reception and concierge staff were fantastic. Room was very small (especially considering price paid). Food and beverage staff were not friendly. Hotel was consumed by conference attendees, therefore if you weren't one of those, you were invisible.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
