Beautiful hotel, with very nice rooftop! Everyone is very nice and always tries to help you. The spaces are not very big, but you couldn't be more central in Barcelona. The food is amazing and the cocktails too! ;)

Just spent 4 days at this lovely hotel. I only wish that I had read the tips on this website. We were situated on the second floor facing the road. Although the windows do a pretty good job in muffling most of the traffic noise, during the early mornings, vehicle noise can be heard. But MORE IMPORTANTLY, there is noise... More

This hotel is very well located next to the gothic area, The rooms are nicely furnished and decorated. On the negative side: the bathroom and the toilet are in the room itself, just separated by a cupboard and a glass door, it is nice looking but not very convenient, the soundproofing of the walls is also not the best. Another... More

Stayed here for four nights with my daughter. It was quite a bit more expensive than other hotels but we chose it on the basis of the reviews - especially those of the roof top infinity pool and bar. To be fair it is not a bad place to stay, in fact many would say it was very nice, so... More

My partner and I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and found the staff so helpful and accommodating. The food was delicious and we ate in the restaurant on the last night and wished we'd visited before! We had our bed turned down each night and were left with chocolates and water. The standard of the hotel was fantastic... More

I cant recommend this hotel enough. The location is brilliant for exploring, The Gothic Quarter, the Marina, Rambles and more. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and gave the BEST restaurant recommendations. The pool on the roof was a good size but not heated, so not the best for lounging in for too long, but the rooftop view... More

This is a calm and relaxing experience, from arrival to departure. The sky bar and infinity pool is glorious: swimming at 8.30am was a great way to build up appetite for their wonderful breakfast buffet which offered eggs, bacon, sausage plus child cuts, fruit, cereal etc...

This hotel sells itself on its roof top pool bar which it is true that it has a wonderful view but what impressed me more about the Grand Hotel Central was their staff. Everyone one of them gave exceptional service, nothing was too much trouble for them, from recommending a hairdresser (I needed a wash and blow wave, the best... More

We spent 3 nights at Grand Central Barcelona. I have to admit, this is one of the best hotels I visited in Europe considering the price paid. One cannot ask for a better location. This modern gem has everything it takes to be rated a 5 stars, starting of course with the helpful, warm and smiling staff. To remember the... More

An amazing boutique hotel in a beautiful old building. The ambiance is absolutely fantastic. In a Lounge atmosphere you really feel at home. The rooms are large enough, well equiped, well designed. The lobby gives you the feeling that you are arriving in a spa....ready to be pampered and relax. The staff is smiling and welcoming. What makes this place... More
