Tripadvisor locates this hotel several miles away from the city centre. In fact it could not be more central. It is opposite the Opera house.
The public areas of the hotel reflect the "Gran" in its name. The reception area is panelled with dark wood, and contains furniture from the visit of JFK in 1963. The breakfast room is like a formal ballroom. Unfortunately the buffet does not match up to its surroundings. The rooms are in need of updating and are quite tired. We stayed twice here in a "superior" room. The rooms had views out towards the Opera House, but I suspect the standard rooms would have views towards the interior of the building. Our first room was quite small. The second was larger. Both had refrigerator and air conditioning. Lighting was quite dim.
