Booked 2 nights at Grand Central Hotel, Barcelona pretty last minute for my partner and I. A superb hotel with very friendly and efficient staff, great facilities and a really good location. We were walking distance from everything we wanted to see, and were big fans of the El Born area, and La Barceloneta which were both really easy to... More

We took a City break at the Grand Hotel Central and have had a superb stay. Service is excellent and the rooms are modern, clean and tidy. The hotel is located between the Gothic area and Born with easy walks to the port and beach. The Sky Bar with rooftop views over the City is nothing short of sensational. To... More

Room was noisy - drain noise from rooms above and given its a late night city it goes on all night. Get a room at the top 2. The hotel claims car parking but it's... More

This is among one of the best hotels we have stayed at. The staff was absolutely top notch, very friendly and extremely helpful. They arrange dinner at different restaurants every night, all special in its own way and delicious. The roof café with its view, was great.

Everything was perfect! Location, service and atmosphere. To start the morning with a coffee at the pool on the rooftop is priceless. There is no doubt that I want to stay here next time I visit Barca <3

Great location, clean, roomy, friendly, helpful staff; lovely rooftop bar. You can walk to many of the cities attractions from the hotel. The breakfast buffet is lovely, and the view on the rooftop bar is fantastic, as well as the drink selection.

We wanted a rest, a break and this hotel allowed us to have just that. We sat on the roof top bar and just soaked up the sun and atmosphere. Excellent staff, we were looked after well. Hotel had all the facilities we needed.

I highly recommend this hotel! We have made a weekend gateway there and really enjoyed it! The swimming pool offers a wonderful view at night. Really close to the old town, ramblas, beach and the port.

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.
