Past meets present in this design hotel in arty El Born, Barcelona
Elegant neoclassical columns. Stately copper doors. An impressive entrance hall featuring wrought iron lamps and sweeping staircases. When you first arrive at Grand Hotel Central, you’ll feel you’ve stepped back to the glamorous roaring twenties. As you explore further, the classic style of this boutique city retreat gives way to contemporary, urban sophistication.
Open the door to your suite to discover a pared-back, modern interior. Historic sites can be spotted out of almost every window – but no view compares to the rooftop terrace. Here you can drift in an infinity pool while gazing over the Barcelona skyline. Why not follow this up with a session in the Thermal Suite sauna, or a soothing massage? When you’ve worked up an appetite, head to City Restaurant for Mediterranean classics made from market-fresh ingredients.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
When you’re ready to see the city, grab one of Grand Hotel Central’s ‘local view’ guidebooks. But there’s plenty to be said for setting out without a map, too. With an enviable position between El Born and the Gothic Quarter, twisting streets, secret squares and ancient churches are waiting to be discovered.
Enjoy your stay!
