                        Excellent location. Great staff. Modern rooms and bathrooms. Great view from rooftop pool.

                        Room was a little dusty. Internet was not for free in room or shared areas. No coffee in rooms.

                        Perfectly located near Las Ramblas and the port. Brilliant staff and excellent facilities.

                        I like very lowely staff, excellent location and comfort. If I arive in Barcelona, would stay in the Grand Hotel Central.

                        The feel of the hotel is modern and cosmopolitan. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room I had was not huge but the decor and facilities were excellent. The infinity pool on the roof of the hotel was too cold to use on my visit but the terraced area is a great space for a drink are the seating is very comfortable. I did not use the gym but it had the basic equipment for a work out. I have stayed at this hotel before and consider it an excellent base from which to tour the city.

                        The friendly helpful staff, the quality of the hotel, the rooftop pool/sitting area, the gym, the breakfast.

                        The rooms are too dark. The open plan sink area lacks privacy. The shower cubicle allows water to escape on the floor via the gap in the door and also from the base (water cannot drain effectively and spills over the basin.

                        peaceful , sound proof ,blackout blinds , room decor, central location ,could not have chosen better.

                        unable to open windows, but had very effective air conditioning

                        Very well located.Quite considering the location. Staff very helpful regarding site seeing and getting around town and recommending great restaurants.

                        Too dark felt like I needed a torch sometimes. Thought wi fi should be included in tariff but can just pop next door to Starbucks!!!!!

                        Superior service and excellent location at an amazing value. From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by how hard every single staff member worked to ensure our happiness during our stay. The location can't be beat, and the rooftop pool, while small, does the trick to beat the Barcelona heat. I would recommend this hotel to anyone in a heartbeat.

                        Very strange plan of some rooms - the lavatory has not a door and is situated before a bed (the bath and the toilet have half transparent door.

                        9.2

                        Everything is very good at the hotel

                        The pool bar staff could be as nice as the front desk staff

                        9.6

                        The staff were very friendly and helpful, as I checked in I asked about the wifi in the hotel and the bell boy said it had been a little troublesome recently and gave me the 3 days for no charge even though it worked perfectly. The roof top pool is beautiful although small. The rooms are spacious and the pillows are very comfortable.

                        The roof top pool can become quite crowded and there is no where to sit. The snacks at the bar are quite pricey for what you receive.

                        Rooftop Poll and bar both excellent. Views spectacular and service very good.

                        Room cleaning service was often done pm when you may want to pop back to the room.

                        Loved this hotel, would definately recommend highly. Great location, spotless rooms, staff could not have been more helpful! Roof-top pool and bar very stylish and convenient. Would stay again.

                      • Family with children
                        7.0

                        Going to the roof top where the pool and outside bar area is. Sunning.

                        No real complaints, however, the hotel is confusing when first dropping off luggage if you have a car - no entry point or information to tell you it is okay to park in the street to unload...very confusing. No late night store to get cola's or snacks.
