We've stayed in this hotel a number of times and have always had a fabulous time. The rooftop pool and sky bar make this place more than an ordinary hotel - we could stay all day up there enjoying the view. There's nothing better than after some sightseeing around the city to get back to GHC and go for a... More

We didn't want to leave this hotel. Just stayed here for three nights, wished it was longer. From the moment we got out of the taxi they were there to help us, greet us & welcome us into the hotel. The rooms were new, modern & clean. The beds have been the most comfortable so far since our travels, we... More

I booked the hotel as a present for my Mother to celebrate her 60th Birthday in September. The hotel is ideally located, with beautiful buildings and architecture within close proximity and short and pleasant walks to the Plaza Catalunya, Ramblas and the aquarium. There are plenty of shops, convenience stores and restaurants near by - with some great deals to... More

We had four nights in the wonderful city of Bacelona and were very happy with Grand Hotel Central. After a lengthy drive from the South of France the check-in was friendly, efficient and helpful. Our room was great on the fourth floor although, as mentioned by previous reviewers, the slamming of bedroom doors was pretty loud. The room was spacious,... More

We stayed here for 4 days in September. It's a lovely hotel with a fantastic rooftop pool. The rooms were large and quiet. My main compliment would go to the staff - nothing was too much trouble, they always greeted you with a smile and the service from house keeping to reception to bar staff was exceptional. I would highly... More

We stayed 6 nights in this hotel. The location was great for us being close to shopping, the Gothic quarter and plenty of good restaurants. It is a very modern hotel with nice sized rooms. We found the service to be excellent, the staff always willing to help get taxis or suggest places to eat. We had breakfast included and... More

Nice hotel, great helpful staff. The road noise in the rooms at the front is a problem and should be addressed by redesign to the double glazed windows, that would minimize the problem. As a small boutique owner myself I cannot understand how the owner has not noticed slamming bedroom doors as a major issue, this is an easy fix,... More

This hotel was clean and modern. The staff was over-the-top willing to help out in whatever way possible, and it was helpful that their English was excellent. The hotel will provide a driver if needed. In our case, we needed a piece of computer equipment and it was difficult to locate; the driver drove us all over Barcelona, translating for... More

Stayed to celebrate my 60th birthday - what a brilliant choice. Fantastic location, excellent service, amazing breakfast, and the best rooftop pool. Went for a city room with 5 windows overlooking the city. Seriously could not fault this hotel apart from the fact that it's spoilt me for the future!! Thoroughly recommended.

Amazing hotel in a great location! Walking distance to everything in Barcelona, which is an amazing city. Very nice modern rooms, with no outside noise. The infinity rooftop pool is beautiful and offers great views of the city, will definitely be back. Thanks
