We went on a five day city trip to Barcelona. First time there. We stayed in this hotel and had a great stay. Alonso, the doorman, was helpful every day with ideas for places to go and general tips. Justice was always willing to have a little chat about our stay and offer some water bottles. When there was an...

Stayed in an Executive room, which was a little oddly-shaped - not much space around the bed still. However, the room had everything, including free snacks and drinks in the minibar. The shower was amazing, although the extractor fan didn't appear to be working. Good choice of TV stations in many languages. My only gripe was that my room was...

Grand Hotel Central is a 5* hotel with 10* staff, 10* facilities, 10* service and 15* cocktails (!) in their lovely bar or on the stunning roof top. This was a return visit with my twin daughters for their 21st Birthday. The location is ideal for easy access to most places. The ambience of the hotel is one of calm...

The hotel is situated right in the city center and has a spectacular view from the rooftop terrace with swimming pool. However, the best part was the concierge services, especially Mauricio. He is very knowledgeable and effective in finding best tables at great restaurants and doesn't hesitate to "go the extra mile" in providing the best concierge services.

Great service and hospitality. Best hotel of any hotels we have stayed at in Europe. Received a room upgrade when we arrived. Room service was excellent and food was superb. View from top floor was magical. Right in the heart of the city.

I loved everything about this hotel - the location (right off of Gran Via, and within a 15-30 min walk of most sites), the rooftop bar (awesome drinks, beautiful views, great service, heated pool), the rooms (modern, clean, also great views), the service (super friendly staff, helpful with booking restaurant reservations and providing information about attractions). I couldn't be happier...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Grand Central Hotel for 3 nights in February... From the moment our cab pulled up outside we knew we had chosen the right hotel. Stunning contemporary design and the most helpful and friendly staff ever. We got upgraded to a superior room and was taken upstairs and shown all the great features and...

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.
