Stayed for 4 nights on a city break. Ate at the restaurant one evening, and spent a day relaxing at the sky bar. The staff were brilliant from check in to check out, friendly, funny and engaging throughout.

Location: central and near the Gothic quarter and the Marina. Good for taxis.

Arrival: the hotel is modern with attractive decor, The staff are friendly and welcoming.

Rooms: various sizes but my room was a reasonable size and I have stayed in much smaller rooms. Here there was easily enough space to walk all around the big bed.

Wifi: good and free.

Wardrobes : all storage is open.

Mini-bar: free and replenished daily, including some nice small tubes of Smarties. Instant coffee + tea available, not Nespresso machines.

Eats / Drinks : the City Bar at street level offers tasty food at fair prices, but higher than some local restaurants. The real surprise is the roof bar.

Roof Bar: there is an all day bar and sofa area with lovely views over rooftops towards the sea. There is outdoor heating, rugs and a blind / sun-shade to deal with all weather conditions. After 6pm the sun-beds are removed and replaced by table for outdoor dining. The roofbar / restaurant is popular with locals, as well as hotel guests. Food and wine are same as for the ground floor restaurant. There is music and a nice buzz to the place.

Would I go back? Yes. Prices are fair and this hotel suits me.

We wanted a great hotel for the first leg of our honeymoon and this place exceeded our expectations. From the second we landed in Barcelona, the Grand Hotel Central was very accommodating to our needs. We landed earlier than expected and they arranged for early check in without hesitation (or any additional charges), treated us like royalty from the second we arrived and even hailed us a cab in the rain and told our driver what terminal at the airport to take us to upon checkout, it was unlike any service I have ever experienced. The rooftop bar is divine - amazing views and a great place for a nightcap before bed. The concierge gave us an amazing recommendation for a close and casual dinner, we can't say enough great things! We were so spoiled and hope to come back and visit again.

One night at this hotel prior to commencing a 12 day small group tour of northern Spain. Excellent location and good standard hotel. All staff were great and made us feel completely at home in every respect. Great breakfast selection. Room was compact but very comfortable. Only a stones throw to Cathedral and Catalonia Place and a fantastic food market and restaurant/bar just around the corner. Recommended.
