Hotel is well situated on a main street in Barcelona, near the Cathedral and old town. The rooms are small, but well done and tight around the bed. Staff were very kind, but I did they were a bit understaffed at reception, and in a bit of a flurry when we arrived, but it's obvious they're trying hard to keep...

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Central for a 2 day stay in Barcelona. In short, we were not disappointed. The hotel is extremely central in Barcelona. As a first time visitor, everything was in walking distance, or a cheap taxi ride away. The hotel checked us into a room where the street adjoined the very busy Via Laietana. The...

Not only did the hotel staff, who were always smiling and pleasant, leave us a complimentary bottle of Cava for my finances birthday, but they left rose petals from the entrance to the bed, left...

We stayed for 3 nights. Awesome location. Reception and concierge staff were fantastic. Room was very small (especially considering price paid). Food and beverage staff were not friendly. Hotel was consumed by conference attendees, therefore if you weren't one of those, you were invisible.

We spent a long weekend in Barcelona staying at the Grand Central. We were warmly welcomed by the delightful staff. The room was comfortable and we loved the Skybar with its infinity pool. On the first evening, we ate in the hotel restaurant as we were tired after an early start. We were pleasantly surprised at the standard. The peach...

Emma and I booked the hotel based on the rooftop picture and of course the good comments posted here for our 25th wedding anniversary break. Okay so the research was a bit deeper than that and we are happy to say we were not disappointed at all. The staff are what makes a hotel, without a dedication to service quality...

Breakfast is good for European Hotels. Bar - average quality of food and service. Fitness center is too small and not enough equipment. The hotel staff is very polite and helpful. Don't understand why they turn off the Air conditioning when they come to service the room.

I have been visiting this hotel a couple of times and the service and atmosphere is one of a kind. If you are about to spend your weekend in Barcelona, this hotel is the one for you! The only negative to say about the hotel is the lack of wifi in the rooms and the roof top pool is a...

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.
