Excellent location. The staff at this hotel are passionate about guest satisfaction. A special thank you to Alonso the doorman who went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. He gave us directions to wherever we wanted to go and was very attentive. Next time we are in Barcelona we will definitely stay here again. Thanks to all...

The hotel is in a very good location to get to all the main sight seeing spots like the Cathedral (basically across the road) and the sight seeing bus stops just across the road so easy to hop on, can even buy a ticket for this at the hotel. All the staff are very helpful and knowledgable especially the doorman...

The Grand Hotel Central was the perfect location for our one night short visit to Barcelona before our cruise. The accommodations were perfect, our room was upgraded (without a request) and we were able to check in early in the day. Very nice waiting area, beautiful restaurant, and the location was close to any type transportation needed. Highly recommend.

Looove the attentive staff and the decor. The food and drinks are modern and old fashioned at same time because attention to the produce and excellent cooking never go out of style. I only wish you could get some fresh air. The windows are locked which means you have to go outside to get a whiff of the Med...

Dear Jelena B, Thank you for your kind comments. It is very satisfying to learn that our staff and decor was up to your standards. As we have recently refurbished many of our windows to avoid noise-related issues, some of our rooms windows cannot be open. We take your comments on board. Warm regards Jaime Estellés

We spent four nights here, booked a suite and got a master suite, it was superbly designed and extremely comfortable. The service here is unbelievable, everyone was extremely hospitable and smiling and they did everything possible to make us feel welcome.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
