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
"All round fantastic"
I booked this hotel for my husbands 40th celebration. 12 of us stayed and we had the best time! The staff were so friendly the rooms were outstanding and the Sky bar was awesome! I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend! One tiny comment is the breakfast was a bit lacking so we only ate there 1 out of the 3 mornings.
"Superb rooftop pool and bar"
Excellent staff, very helpful with advice. Superb views and service at the Skybar on the roof. Best mojitos ever ! Superb location, very central. Reasonably priced. Mattresses extremely comfortable, quiet efficient air-con. Breakfast overpriced. If you're here for just a few days and want to get going, there is an excellent breakfast cafe just outside and turn left.
"Loved the Grand Hotel Central"
This fabulous hotel exceeded our expectations! The staff is so friendly and accommodating. They do everything with a smile on their faces and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. The location was one of our favorite things. So centrally located - close to so many wonderful neighborhoods and attractions! The buffet breakfast had the most wonderful array of delicious food and the coffee....outstanding! The room was very comfortable - especially loved those electronic blackout shades. And the rooftop bar was our sanctuary every evening after touring the beautiful city of Barcelona. I hope to have the opportunity to return to the Grand Hotel Central - and would highly recommend it to everyone!
"Great Hotel, Great Staff, Great Location"
Having stayed in the Grand Hotel a number of times I have no hesitation in recommending it to those visiting Barcelona on business or pleasure, I have used it for both. The staff are fantastic, courteous and extremely helpful. The roof top pool is a perfect hangout and the location, on the edge of El Born next to Gothic is ideal. I recently took 5 friends and they similarly raved about it.
"Very smart hotel in the heart of the fashionable Barrio Gotic"
A first class hotel with all amenities. The rooms are functional and clean, but not luxurious. There is also a fair amount of noise from rooms around, as the floors aren't carpeted and the doors slam. However, if you want superb service, this is the place to be. We were disappointed in the standard double room we were given & said so. Immediately, the manager,Jaime, came to see us & took us around the 2 other available rooms (this place is extremely popular) & offered us a free upgrade to the room of our choice. The staff here are wonderful - the hotel ethos is that the guests' happiness comes first. The managers trained at very good London hotels and their approach to service is the best I've come across. The breakfasts are amazing & the bar & restaurant very chic. Piped music is played in the dining areas (including quite loudly over breakfast, but the staff will turn it down), in the lounge & in the roof-top pool area.
