From the first touch you feel welcomed. The attention and level of service made our stay easy. We stayed 1 adult, one teenager and a 10 year old in a junior suite. At arrival we were welcomed and due to early arrival offered luggage storage. The room was nice and spacious (608) and access to the rooftop terrace was close by. Rooftop terrace clubbing and pool is a big asset. Not too crowded, relaxed atmosphere and good service. I would recommend the hotel to anyone going to Barcelona. The location, the service, the atmosphere and quality gave us a fantastic stay. We will come back for sure! Best Peter

Absolutely remarkable service. The ability of the front desk and service staff at this hotel to anticipate the needs of their guests (getting cabs, transferring bags to rooms, getting drinks or towels on the rooftop, even printing event tickets and leaving them in the room) was so refreshing. This was my third time in Barcelona and I have never received service like I did at this hotel. Facilities were spectacular, but the staff truly made this experience.

This is our 4th stay at Grand Central and we have stayed at other hotels in Barcelona but we keep coming back to GC - the location is ideal, lovely rooms and roof top bar, friendly and very helpful team. The spa has been updated and extended which is a welcome addition. Highly recommend it.

From the moment we walked in the staff was professional, personable, and couldn't be more accommodating. The lobby was well appointed and the rooftop pool/lounge area had an awesome view of the surrounding area down to the Med Sea. The room is what you would expect in any city. We had a king-size bed with body pillows that made extremely comfortable. The location was perfect for us. In the Gothic Qtr close to the Picasso Museum, bars, and restaurants. We enjoyed sight-seeing in the mornings, lounging on the rooftop in the afternoons, then diner and a stroll in the evening. Perfect! Highly recommended and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th and it was a quiet room, however, it did overlook a small playground.
