A very clean and comfortable room. Excellent staff. Comfy bed. The sky bar is a great place to unwind with good snacks and fab cocktails. The breakfast buffet is so yummy. The wifi is free. My only niggle was the noise. We heard the subway all through the night. Go for a higher room and your stay will be bliss.

With a fantastic location this 5* hotel is amazing. From the moment you check-in the staff are friendly and courteous and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time in the hotel and Barcelona which is a wonderful city. The rooms are spotless and decorated tastefully, the breakfast was excellent and the roof-top bar is a must.

The service was great. The hotel is beautiful. The room was lovely but a bit small and there was noise outside at night. The lounge on the upper level at the pool was wonderful. A great place to begin your day with a morning coffee or end your evening with a drink.

Loved the hotel and its location. The hotel is around the corner from the medieval Cathedral and the view from the street are very historical. It was easy to get around from its location. The staff was very helpful and always had a smile on their faces. They easily got us entry tickets as we only had 3 days in Barcelona.

I've stayed at the Ritz 4 Seasons in Lisboa, the Carlton in Cannes, this hotel experience was on par with that, mostly due to it's unmatched rooftop view. It was rated of the the top 10 rooftop views in the world for a reason. We pretty much spent our entire time up there. You can see the whole of Barcelona from there, though it feels like you're gazing at the entire world. It's incredible. The infinity pool just makes it even better.

Very rarely do we spend an entire week in one place but this hotel was exceptional. We had a deluxe room which even by U.S. standards was spacious and ultra modern. The breakfast was fantastic ,and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The rooftop bar and pool were an added bonus and great place to relax after touring all day. The location was just as advertised "CENTRAL". Walking distance to the waterfront, Las Ramblas, Old Town and El Borne. Metro station around the corner. 4 thumbs up !!

Excellent location, yet away from the crowded la rambla. Excllent restaurants all around. As usual, international arrival from u.s. Is early morning, we request for a 10:00 am check-in: no problem, got into our room at 10:00. Room is well sound-proof and sunlight proof. Able to sleep in thru the jet-lag days.

This hotel is located in the city centre, close to all touristic highlights. Although the hotel is well equiped, it is more a 4* than a 5* hotel. Small roof terrace has a nice view, but a limited number of chairs at the pool. People in the bar were very friendly, whereas reception staff was rather neglecting.

A nice and fine hotel, 5 stars, excellence service and clean room. Beautiful pool and bar/restaurant at the roof. But it has only 6-8 tables so book the table in time if you want to eat out on the top (witch you want!) of the hotel. At the bar it easier to get a sofa to sit down and relax and take a coffee or a drink after a hard shopping day or a day in the sun at the beach. The hotel is quite near the beach but a better beach is little bit longer away near the subway T4 station Ciutadella Vil... Read more

From the moment we stepped inside this place we experienced hospitality of the highest quality. The woman at the front desk informed me that we were to be upgraded to a Master Suite, and that if we'd like to wait in the bar on the first floor or the pool, it would be about 30 minutes. They kept our luggage safe while we enjoyed a Cava at the bar.

Great hotel - arguably the best SPG option in Barcelona. It is right by the Gothic Quarter, so we could easily walk to the different museums and attractions we wanted to see. Honestly, we could have spent our entire weekend stay at the hotel - we loved the rooftop bar and pool area.

The Grand Hotel Central is in fact "Central" to everything we wanted to do. The rooms were fine and the staff was professional and attentive. There is a design quirk in the shower/tub: there is a glass door that only extends part way across the tub's rim, if you can picture it. It is impossible to keep shower water confined to the tub. WiFi was a little slow. There is a beautiful rooftop infinity pool with great views of Barcelona. In sum, a classy and well-run hotel. I would stay there a... Read more

What a fabulous hotel bang in the centre of the gothic part of the city right next to the cathedral. It's also convenient for the tourist bus! The hotel is immaculate rooms spacious and as it was so hot the roof top bar and pool were a dream although it does get busy. My only one criticism which is no fault of the hotel is that as we were on the 2nd floor we could hear and feel the Metro underneath, the room seemed to shake. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Arriving in a hotel and the first thing one has to do is to complain about the room is what no one needs. We booked a double-room and were given a single. Ok, we received a doubler after we complained but had to change again because the room would get some maintenance the next day. Well, at least reception did not know that right away. The third room was finally the one we stayed in - Hurra. The roof top bar - one of the reasons I booked the hotel - was already closed when we were there although... Read more

The Grand Central is conveniently located and the staff will bend over backwards to accommodate you. They offer free breakfast which is a great way to start your day! The roof top pool bar is a great way to relax at the end of a busy day of sight seeing and shopping however, the space/pool is not that big and finding a chair can be a challenge as people tend to claim them early and set up shop. That being said, the view is fabulous! The only drawback to this hotel is the noise. It faces a ve... Read more

We went to Barcelona in july to celebrate my husband's birthday and stayed at the Grand Hotel Central. The hotel staff were very attentive and friendly. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the buffet breakfast was amazing. Not to mention the roof top pool and bar with breathtaking views across the city.

This was my second stay at the Grand Central. I felt very welcome by the staff. No request ever seemed difficult for them. Everyone from concierge to the door man were very friendly, and always had a smile. I will be staying here for many years to come!

The hotel is run and managed by some exceptional people. Never before have I experienced such personal service. You really feel that the staff are your friends who will go to a lot of trouble to help with anything. From Saul Canal, the Front Office Manager, who, together with the lovely reception staff, was exceptionally helpful to myself and my husband with an airport transfer problem, to the housekeeping staff, this hotel exudes care and concern for its guests. I would definitely stay here... Read more

This was my 5th stay at the GHC. This time just a couple of days to round up a trip to Costa Brava with a weekend in BCN. Very warm welcome by receptionist Ingrid who gave us a room upgrade and a promotion deal for breakfast! The service at this hotel is excellent, the rooms have a modern design with a stylish bathroom, they are always clean. They serve a high quality breakfast with all you can wish for. Despite all this, the single best argument to choose this hotel is the rooftop bar with infi... Read more

Enjoyed my stay at the Grand Hotel Central. The property is very well located at the edge of the Gothic Quarter and a short walk to the Picasso Museum. The rooms are modern and comfortable and the rooftop bar and pool are a great place to unwind at the end of the day. The staff was great, always looking for a way to be helpful.

We spent three fabulous nights at the Grand Hotel Central. From check-in to check-out the service was impeccable. This is a wonderfully run hotel that is not stuffy, but seems an oasis from the crowds and bustling city right outside the front door. Breakfast buffet is beautiful with an excellent selection of fresh fruits, cheeses, meats, eggs, breads, yogurts, etc. The bar and restaurant is equally good. Great location for walking, exploring, catching the subway, etc. The GM, Jaime, was most ... Read more

Beautifully appointed. Incredible staff. All of it came together to make our stay in Barcelona a real treat. The decor with a cool gray was relaxing. The room modern well furnished but not over the top. Minimalistic. Breadsticks was a good value. The staff was helpful in every count.

We stayed a moderately priced hotel for the first few nights of our 1 week stay in Barcelona but wanted to treat ourselves for the remainder of the stay, so decided on Grand Hotel Central based on reviews from a few different sites. The very first thing that happened was that I needed to sign off on charges at the front desk that were (I think) a little over $100 more than my third-party online booking had stated. The attendant stated that I must be wrong about it, and so what was I going to d... Read more

I stayed here for 5 days while at a business conference. It's on a busy street in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, but once you walk inside, it's serene and perfect. The staff are helpful without being annoyingly solicitous. The restaurant and bar on the first floor are great. The rooftop bar is spectacular (except it closes earlier than you'd expect in Barcelona). The room is a good size and well-appointed. I'm staying here again!

This beautifully designed and decorated hotel is in a historic building adjacent to the hip Born district and the historic Gothic quarter. My stay began with a warm welcome from the front desk staff. I also spied a table with refreshments which are always a welcome sight as a weary traveler! My room was well designed and very comfortable. I was particularly impressed with the bathroom area which included the closet area. There was ample room for hanging clothes and shelving which was perfect fo... Read more

You will find what you'd expect from a 5 star property. The common areas are very clean and impeccably maintained, Our room was very comfortable, larger than the average size room you would find in Europe. The bathroom was clean and modern. Stunning view of Barcelona from the top terrace with an infinity pool. The staff did everything to make our stay pleasant and memorable. The only reason we gave it a 4 was because of a dinner at the hotel restaurant where the main course was not up to par. Th... Read more

The staff was outstanding , extremely polite and always helpful! In particular I want to mention Thomas and Agata (?) during breakfast, both fantastic, and Alonso, the doorman and Facunundo (?) , I forgot how his name was written. The design of my room was not really matching my taste, I prefer bright colours, but everything else was good , except a eletricity box which made some noises next to my head beside the bed and the windows should be openable!

A comfortable and friendly hotel in the centre of the city. Close to the Cathedral. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room is a good size, though rather dark even with all the lights on. Bathroom is modern and clean. Bed is very comfortable. Well situated within walking disgrace of many sights and restaurants. Food in hotel restaurant is also excellent. Highly recommended.

Love this boutique hotel: mohair, leather, wool, cashmere. Dark, elegant, sexy and fabulous. It's a boutique "W" City Bar is excellent, too. I had no idea it was a Starwood until I read a TripAdvisor review. Happy Travels!

I stayed at The Grand Hotel Central with my husband and six-year old daughter for three nights. We found it to be ideally located and very comfortable, with top-notch service to boot. The staff graciously remembered my daughter's birthday and gave her a lovely gift, which was a really nice touch that left a great impression. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. By far the best feature of the hotel is its awesome roof deck, offering beautiful views of the city (and a swim during warm... Read more

Thanks a lot to all the staff who are making my stay here very nice and comfortable. Special thanks to Alonso the doorman who is always very polite, smiling and was really helpful and suggested me nice places to visit and eat. Room was top notch, swimming pool with the bar on top floor has a great view. Would definitely recommend it!
