“Grand Hotel Central”
Apr 5, 2012 hunter22
The Grand Hotel Central is in a great location that is right by the El Born district which is the hot food & nightlife district, walking distance to the beaches, the Ramblas, The Mercado(most amazing food market I have ever seen), the Barcelona Cathedral, the 5th Ave of Barcelona Placa Catalunya, the Dali, Picasso museums, and many more museums and Art galleries. The rooms are minimalist yet comfortable. One of the highlights is the rooftop lounge and infinity pool...it was incredible oasis to take a break from it all...The staff were all fantastic and were very helpful in regards to restaurants, beaches, sites etc...

This place definitely lives up to its name! With spacious and high-end amenities, the Grand Hotel Central is a fairly normal hotel and a good springboard to both the Gothic and Born neighborhoods, as well it’s right at the foot of ancient Roman walls. The prestigious chef, Ramon Freixa, runs the hotel restaurant, “Avalon”, famous for its excellent local cuisine. But where the hotel really triumphs is with its rooftop infinity pool; if not for the spectacular photo, a dip inside is quite an experience. The only downside is that Via Laietana (the main street which the hotel is on) is quite busy with traffic, so pick a room that’s high up.

As the name conveys, this hotel is right in the center of Barcelona, in the historic Gothic Quarter. It is only a ten-minute walk to Barcelona’s Cathedral and right across the street from the charming Born district with its trendy boutique shops and tapas bars. The sea is literally down the street, only five minutes away. The hotel itself is decent, although I have to mention that the dull decoration and the lack of light inside, reminded me of an office space and can be somewhat depressing. Luckily once you step onto the street, the sun is shining brightly, as it does about 90% of the time in Barcelona. The pool on the rooftop terrace is small, but the beautiful view of the harbor makes up for it.

The infinity pool on the hotel’s rooftop terrace is but one of the many intricate details that makes the Grand Hotel Central so incredible. Its 1920’s façade is complemented by the modern and sleek interior and its eco-friendly solar panels situated on the hotel roof. For smokers be sure to ask for a smoking floor, as the hotel is divided between smoking and non-smoking. I especially enjoyed the option of being able to extend the check out time, so if you think you’ll want to sleep in on the last day, ask in advance, they’re very eager to accommodate. During the evening definitely make a reservation one night at their renowned, Avalon restaurant, run by well-known, Michelin Star Chef, Ramon Freixa.

I've been to Barcelona twice and stayed in this hotel both times. It is a fantastic hotel. A bit more pricey than some of the others around but I would definitely stay here again. Staff were wonderful. Close to everything. Pool on the roof is a treat if the weather is good :-)
