Pros: The staff was very helpful and the location was terrific - right downtown, close to la rambla and the bus. the breakfast included in our price was excellent although the eggs could have been hotter! water and softdrinks in the minibar in the room were included in the price - a nice change from most hotels.
Cons: There weren't many towels and no facecloths.

Very enjoyable and comfortable and quiet

Located right in the centre of the city, next to Barcelona’s cathedral, Grand Hotel Central Barcelona offers spectacular views of the entire Gothic district and the ancient city walls. From the hotel, the most well-known highlights can be comfortably reached, such as Las Ramblas, the shopping area around Plaza Cataluña, as well as the most visited museums and the seafront. Nearby you will find the city’s most fashionable area El Born district, full of surprising shops, designer bars and restaurants scattered throughout its narrow streets.

One of the most outstanding features of the Grand Hotel is the inviting rooftop pool with breathtaking views of the city. The building retains many of the classic elements of the original structure and combines a host of contemporary features and luxurious touches to create this timeless hotel. The Avalon Restaurant & Café, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, is the ideal place to savour real Mediterranean cuisine, created by the prestigious chef Ramon Freixa. You will have the opportunity to enjoy fresh, Mediterranean dishes that combine seasonal produce with the very best of Catalan cuisine. In addition, the hotel offers 24 hr laundry service and room service.

Each of the 147 quiet and spacey rooms in Grand Hotel Central Barcelona is the perfect combination of contemporary style and warm tones, with great attention to detail. All of them are completely soundproofed and have a DVD & MP3 player, an IHome, a work desk and a safe that can be used for a laptop.
