the hotel is situated on an extremely busy and noisy and dirty main road. The building next door is a building site. Which starts drilling at 7am. The luxury room is really small. The bed fills the whole room. Not good value at all. The room card keys are old technology so proximity to a mobile phone wipes the magnetic...

Very nice hotel, nice and friendly staff. The hotel has an excellent location in the old part of town close to the subway and walking distance from La Rambla. Also try the Avalon restaurant, it's very good ! When we come back to Barcelona, we'll definitely choose this hotel again.

Barcelona is a great city, Grand Hotel Central has an excellent location close to Born and Gothic area. They have a beautiful roof pool and bar. Service is excellent, and the front desk staff are very friendly and helpful.

Warm welcome very friendly and good location close to Port and Las Ramblas without being too close.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your nice comments about the staff and the hotel. My deepest apologies for the incident with the tidiness of the room upon arrival. I have already spoken to Housekeeping so it does not occurred again. Best Regards, Silvia de Blas. GM

My wife and stayed at the Grand Central for a long weekend. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the staff couldn't do enough for us - friendly, welcoming and helpful. The hotel is in an excellent position for sightseeing and restaurants. Highly recommend it!

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.
