Located in the heart of Barcelona, the Grand Hotel Central is halfway from two important tourist districts of the city: the Gothic Quarter and the Born. The hotel is situated within walking distance from the cathedral, the old walls, a wide range of shops, design cafés and restaurants, the beaches of La Rambla and Plaça de Catalunya.
Hotel, staff, service, cleanliness were all excellent. We would stay at this hotel again.Comment of L. Tina , Australia the 2015-06-11
"Great hotel for a city break"
Beds large and comfortable with high thread count bedlinen. Rooms are modern and nice ambience to relax in after a busy day sight seeing. Roof top pool and bar area also great way to relax after a hot day in the city. Hotel recommended some good restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the hotel. We loved Cuine just round the corner for really fresh ingredients. If travelling in April try the calcots, a local vegetable, which are in season then. Really good location to reach key tourist attractions and rooms surprising quiet (we were on the 6th floor). All staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good - lots of fresh fruit and homemade smoothies which we like. Cooked breakfast available too. I would highly recommend this hotel.
A wonderful hotel is a good location with comfortable rooms and good food. It has a lovely rooftop 'Skybar' with a pool and loungers - great after sightseeing. Very helpful and friendly staff who kindly returned a jacket to us which we left in the hotel.
"Location, Staff great"
Had a great stay here, couldn't be a better location. The rooftop pool and bar are a wonderful way to spend the rest of the day after exploring the city. Alfonso, the door man, was especially great, very polite and professional. I would highly recommend staying here.
"Excellent choice for a city trip"
To put my review into perspective: I have lived in Barcelona before, this visit was for a 3-day business meeting. Arriving at the hotel – centrally located at Via Laietana – was already a treat. We were a couple of colleagues, so the agents took us aside and offered some coffee. In the meantime, they checked us in and we had nothing to worry about. The rooftop terrace is simply amazing. Cool views, tasty food and attentive staff. I went for a run at Barceloneta, and the doorman already told me he will have a cold water ready for me when I get back – that's what I call service! The rooms are decently sized, bright, bed is comfortable, bathroom is functional and large, amenity kit was generous, hair dryer powerful. Overall 5/5, because there simply is nothing bad you can say about this hotel!
"The ultimate Barcelona Grand experience"
Magnificent location in the centre of the city but also feels like a home rather than hotel as staff treat you like family in the bustle of Barcelona. Take to the roof top pool for the best views of the city and a pool that will make you want to come back. Highly recommend the new city bar restaurant- excellent food - it delivers a sensory experience than the previous gallery. I have visited countless times and know it's the best in barcelona
