10/10 Exceptional

Grand Hotel Central
Hotel was top notch in all respects; save one. Our exterior window wall faced a ground level public courtyard below, Noise from that courtyard persisted until 1 to 2AM during our stay. Windows on exterior of building would need to be improved with noise cancelling devices and/or glazing or some other noise cancelling improvements. Frankly for cost of room should be looked at by hotel owners. Disconcerting.

Wonderful hotel. Service was tip top. Reception staff so friendly and helpful and make a really special effort to decorate our room for our engagement. Carlos also made us feel very welcome and brought our bags to our room. We were delighted our room was ready 3 hours early. Pool area lovely and easy to book sunbeds. Service in restaurant on point. Food amazing. We will be back

This place is amazing. The rooftop deck is exquisite and our room was top notch. We added a night through the hotel directly and they upgraded us to a Junior Suite which was so extravagant we never wanted to leave. The only thing average about this hotel is the breakfast.

10/10 Exceptional

This is a premier property. The staff is extremely well trained, efficient but low-key. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here. Check in was great. Room 605 was amazing. Housekeeping was great — they always seemed to know whenever we stepped out, however briefly, in order to do turndown/refresh service! One note: the pool is more a visual feature than a usable one but the rooftop is gorgeous. We did not have time to actually wait for a drink as it was very busy that evening but crowd seemed to be enjoying themselves. Essentially a perfect stay. The staff and management should be particularly commended. No reason to stay elsewhere in barrio gotic. Ps. Far superior to the overpriced name brand chain hotel (about 20m away next to the market) where we stayed in September. Thank you all!

Pamper yourself in Barcelona!
This hotel is amazing. The room was beautiful, clean and extremely comfortable with automatic shades to darken the room for those of us suffering from a combination of jet lag and too many late nights in Barcelona. The front desk staff and concierge were very nice, accommodating and helpful with check in and questions about the area. The rooftop bar was understaffed and crowded. They could use a little more music to set the vibe. Overall, this hotel gets 5 stars from me. I loved my time at the Grand Hotel Central.
