We are just back from 4 nights at the Grand Hotel Central in Barcelona and really this was a fabulous hotel. It is located really well - very near the Cathedral and a very short walk to the Picasso museum. Ours was a family trip and a real plus for us was the pool on the top of the hotel. This is pretty small but an absolute treat in hot weather after a hard days sightseeing. We only ever had to wait about 15 mins to end up with a good place to sit and the kids loved it. Our family room was in fact two rooms connected via a small private hallway, great for slightly older kids, not so good I suspect for toddlers so should be checked. The rooms were modern and well furnished. I have seen other reviews complain about lack of light but the hotel is in a very old part of the town and is much overlooked so I am not sure this is really valid - certainly no problems for us. Breakfast was included in the price and as such was great - probably not worth an extra payment as you could get cheaper breakfasts which looked good outside the hotel. I would definitely return on future trips to Barcelona.
