We spent 3 nights at Grand Central Barcelona. I have to admit, this is one of the best hotels I visited in Europe considering the price paid. One cannot ask for a better location. This modern gem has everything it takes to be rated a 5 stars, starting of course with the helpful, warm and smiling staff. To remember the...

An amazing boutique hotel in a beautiful old building. The ambiance is absolutely fantastic. In a Lounge atmosphere you really feel at home. The rooms are large enough, well equiped, well designed. The lobby gives you the feeling that you are arriving in a spa....ready to be pampered and relax. The staff is smiling and welcoming. What makes this place...

Stayed here for 3 nights in deluxe city view room with fantastics views of the Gothic Quarter. Overall experience was very good but few niggles which is why we're giving 4 stars. Room was kept clean, bed comfortable, but with a shower over the bath, with an ill fitting screen, meant the floor got covered in water after showering, also...

This was a delightful hotel right in the center of everything and in easy walking distance of the things we wanted to see. Great, comfortable room with an extremely comfortable bed. Two real highlights were the extremely helpful front desk staff who always seemed to want to be sure we were being well looked after and the roof-top bar which...

This was our second visit to the Grand Hotel Central and it did not disappoint! We first visited several years ago when the hotel was newly opened. The attention to detail in this hotel reflects what must be great management. The staff is remarkably well trained and make one feel like "regulars." Our room was SO COMFORTABLE, the perfect mattress,...

We stayed at the grand Hotel Central for six nights and loved it. The staff was superb, especially Maria and Sandrine. They were so helpful, friendly and willing to make our visit as enjoyable as possible. They guided us with restaurant reservations, attractions, shopping, transportation, whatever we needed. The breakfast here is exceptional as is the rooftop infinity pool. Make...

Three day birthday surprise break for me, and I could not have asked for better - felt guilty as I know this cost an arm and a couple of legs... and you get almost, almost what you paid for. The hotel is luxurious, and is floor upon floor of wide open, modern, flower filled spaces - wouldn't even get one...

Put simply a stunning hotel. We arrived on Monday 15th September for 4 night stay for our Honeymoon having booked for a loft suite. To our surprise we were upgraded to the Master suite which was outstanding but a smaller standard still would have exceeded our wildest expectations. The staff are amazing and very proud of their hotel which came...

We stayed for a week, and this gave us time to get to know the hotel, the staff and the city. The service given by all of the staff in the reception area was consistently of a very high standard.

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.
