Everything about this hotel exceeded my expectations. The location is ideal for exploring (walking distance to the Gothic area, the medieval synagogue in the Jewish quarter, markets, Las Ramblas, Gaudi's Casa Batlo, fabulous restaurants, cafes, the big plaza, and shopping on Passeig de Gracia); the building beautifully renovated and chic, breakfast superb, and the room had all the comforts of home plus. What really makes it special however is the amazing staff. Everyone--from the front desk, doormen, bell hop, and waiters to the manager--went out of their way to be beyond helpful and genuinely kind during our four night stay. If I am lucky enough to be in Barcelona again, I will definitely stay at the Grand Hotel Central.

We are a family of six and booked three rooms at the Grand Central Hotel. The rooms were all very nice, though a bit small (like most European hotels). The reception desk personnel and concierge were all extremely helpful and informative. The hotel is very centrally located with the beach, old town and Calle Rambla within walking distance. The included breakfast is delicious and the rooftop pool and bar are also quite nice. I highly recommend this hotel in Barcelona.

The hotel staff were always very friendly and were happy to change our room on arrival from one bed to a twin room without any fuss. The rooftop pool and skybar were fantastic and a great place to while away the morning before heading out exploring. The staff were always happy to offer assistance but didn't bother you if you were just happy sunbathing which made a nice change to some hotel where you feel guilty not buying a drink. They also gave us complimentary ice lollies that were delicious. The room service/ night staff were very happy to help when we needed any help regardless of the time. Overall a great stay and we would definitely return!

Room Tip: The light switches and blind buttons in the room are a little confusing so work them out before you...

I very much enjoyed the stay in Grand Hotel Central i had a good Experience there it was very modern

And on the roof of the hotel that infinty pool was great there is a good view of the city from the top of the building

Only thing i didnt like is there is not alot of space up there on the roof to relax
You can only stay there a certain time until you have to leave
But besides that i like the Hotel the staff is very friendly and very helpful

So i def recommend that Hotel

Room Tip: The room was always clean when we left and came back again The refrigrator was filled up every day...

Great staff greets you upon arrival. We were offered a cold drink as we checked in and quickly escorted to our very stylish room. The room was very clean and the bed was comfy. The bathroom had a great rainfall showerhead and plenty of space. The free mini bar was restocked daily as an additional bonus. I would stay here again without hesitation. The staff should be recognized for there excellent hospitality. They made us feel welcome and at home from the very 1st minute. WELL DONE fellas and THANK YOU!!!
