“Perfect hotel for a trip to Barcelona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

In this hotel everything was perfect! The check-in was very smoothly, our room quiet, clean, had a lot of space. The breakfast that was included in our room rate was much more than average with fresh fruits, cooked eggs etc, tortilla, nice bread and pastry and Nespresso Coffee!!! The roof terrace with the infinity pool and the view over Barcelona was perfect to relax after a day of sightseeing and shopping.We certainly will stay again here!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor and a room not going out to Via Laietana

Our overall experience was truly wonderful all around. From the time we checked in, which our room was available early until it was time to checkout, everything was simply wonderful. The staff was always helping with directions, getting cabs, making recommendations to local resturants, helping us use the local transportation like the metro, and the morning breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: The location was excellent to attractions, resturants, Las Ramblas, etc

I can not think about anything bad regarding Grand Hotel Central Barcelona. It was my second time there and if I come to Bacelona again would be my next choice as well. Breakfast are very good, bar and restaurant was very good experience as well. 5* butigue hotel itself. Not the best room view though but bear in mind it is a hotel in the city so no sea view available ;)

Fantastic stay in Barcelona made perfect with this fabulous hotel. Stayed on 6th floor, blackout blinds, comfortable bed made for perfect nights sleep. Breakfast was lovely and everything was fresh and kept stocked up. The Rooftop was ideal for relaxing drinks. Staff were all so helpful - loved it would go back tomorrow.

This hotel was picked by my husband for a surprise mini break. We were very impressed with the standard and quality of the rooms and the breakfast was outstanding - so much choice. The hotel pool and roof terrace was a definite bonus at the end of a busy site-seeing day. I am a very light sleeper and the front rooms can be a bit noisy, from the street traffic below, but the manager very helpfully found us a great room at the rear of the hotel. All staff were very helpful and so polite.

Room Tip: Quite rooms are at the back

I would say if you are looking for a clean and comfortable place to stay this would be a perfect choice. The room is modern and new. I'm allergic to dust and did not have an issue at this hotel. The staff was excellent, I had lost my credit card and they were able to find it. The hotel is central to everything which is convenient if you want to shop or visit tourist sights. My favorite part of the hotel was the rooftop bar. The view is amazing and I wish it was warm enough to swim.

A small room with an ugly view. The breakfast was very nice. The staff was very helpful and polite. We choose a superior room and found it not really superior. I just wonder what a standard room would be like. The location was good.

Room Tip: It was supposed to be a superior room, but it was very small. The king size bed took up most of the...
