Obviously if you're walking around the city, the location is great and you can get to everything you want to see. A few notes: I picked the place because I thought I might use the spa, but in the end, I found the prices a little over the top and I didn't even go. There's a decent salon across the... More

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Central post-cruise. The staff were all extremely helpful and efficient. The service and amenities are top-notch: Godiva chocolates at turn down, along with a large chocolate bar and cookies (all artistically wrapped); linen runners placed on the floor on each side of the bed, free bottled water and a bottle of wine was delivered...

On the rooftop is an amazing poolside area, offering a great way to relax from a long week or even work in the sun over the roofs of Barcelona. Food and Beverage service and Free Wifi available. Highly recommendable!

My boyfriend and I stayed here as we wanted to enjoy some quality time in Barcelona. The hotel is lovely and the infinity pool is wonderful. Unfortunately the design of the room is quite basic as it does not allow to have space for our suitcase and leaves little privacy when you are in the toilet (as there is a... More

Stayed for the night with my girlfriend and the hotel is very nice, staff were friendly and polite. All very good and in a great location and really enjoyed it. My only issue was the road noise. We had a room overlooking the city and the noise was constant. When I go back, I will ask for a room at... More

I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend this hotel and a Master Suite if you are travelling as a family to Barcelona. It is beautiful, efficeint, relaxed, comfortable, stylish and has a stunning roof terrace that will enhance your stay more than you might think. Location is pretty perfect too, central to everything but not too touristy. This place manages to create... 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.
