I have stayed in the Grand Hotel before and was happy to return and see that their standards are still very high. The rooms are very clean and upscale.

The bed fills the whole room. Not good value at all. The room card keys are old technology so proximity to a mobile phone wipes the magnetic... More

Barcelona is a great city, Grand Hotel Central has an excellent location close to Born and Gothic area. They have a beautiful roof pool and bar. Service is excellent, and the front desk staff are very friendly and helpful.

Warm welcome very friendly and good location close to Port and Las Ramblas without being too close. Stayed with my daughter and room was good although could have had space for a proper table and chairs. Also would recommend venturing out for breakfast as the breakfast in the hotel was far too expensive for what you got but that was... More

My wife and stayed at the Grand Central for a long weekend. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the staff couldn't do enough for us - friendly, welcoming and helpful. The hotel is in an excellent position for sightseeing and restaurants. Highly recommend it!

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
