Breakfasts was very good, with plenty of choice (with champagne), and both the ground floor and roof top bar excellent. The staff were incredibly service minded !!. Reception staff were very help full, gave us many tips on our stay... More

Most of the major sights of Barcelona are within walking distance, and the bar and restaurant options right on the doorstep are fantastic. After check-in, I was assigned a room on the... More

Dear Guest, I appreciate your nice comments about the rooms and services in general and the not so positive comments about the metro and street noise. I can not deny the metro passes under the building and one can notice the rattle time to time but I did not know it was disturbing during the night, metro does not operate... More

I love this property, and have reviewed it a few times. I travel to Barcelona regularly and this has become my "home" in the city. The staff are amazing (absolutely amazing!), food is fantastic, rooms really comfortable, location unbeatable, and of course one of the best (and most photographed) rooftops in Barcelona! You cannot go wrong with Grand Hotel Central.... More

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.
