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

The staff was very helpful. The room was very clean. It was located in a good part of town. The food was good, as was the room service. Would recommend this hotel to my friends. The only thing strange was the choice of color of our room which was black.

Wandering the streets of Barcelona brings no shortage of delights and our stop at The City Bar was a major treat! Watching Hicham create his signature cocktails was just as much fun as consuming them. He's truly a craft cocktail maestro! If you're looking for a "Grown Up" place t

Hi we are staying at this hotel next week for 4 days. It's our first time to Barcelona, is it currently warm enough for beach weather and how far a walk is the beach? Also, any recos for things to see...we don't have too long so want time to relax on the rooftop but also enjoy some of the sights. Thanks!
Dear Serpiko, Thank you for your interest in Grand Hotel Central. September is a good month to do both, sight seen and relax by the pool or beach. Temperatures are not extremely hot hence confortable to explore the city or enjoy a cocktail at the RoofTop pool. The beach is located just 10 minutes walk from us and the hotel is also close to many activities such the Gothic Quarter, El Borne district, Market of Boquería, Las Ramblas.,. You can always contact us in advance and help you with tickets, restaurants.. or simply anything you need with assistance. Warmest regards Jaime Estellés

Hotel looks amazing ! I would love to treat my husband to a 4 night stay. Im sure he would love to see a Barcelona foootball game, how would we travel to the football stadium and how long would it take ? Also, how far from the hotel are the Barcelona fountains and the shopping area El Corte Inglis ?
It is a very well located hotel, you can walk to most destinations, but the metro is really effective and fun. Taxis are also very affordable in the city, but getting back from any large event is a challenge. Also recommend the Barca stadium and museum tour if you have time.The hotel can arrange transport, but this rarely is good value.
