Grand Hotel Central

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 the City Restaurant for Mediterranean classics made from market-fresh ingredients.

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!

Contemporary luxury, close (but not too close) to La Ramblas

We spent a lot of time on the roof, relaxing by the beautiful pool. There is something magical about a rooftop infinity pool with a wide view of Barcelona. Nice to have the open space considering there aren't many views from the rooms, and those with a view face a noisy boulevard. Hotel is well-situated Read more[SPLIT]Read lessabout 5 walkable blocks from La Ramblas, which is close enough to avoid the crush (although it is around the corner from the Cathedral). We loved our King room and gorgeous bathroom, but the layout felt a little cramped at times.

Exceptionally helpful before we arrived and wonderful service throughout our stay

The hotel had noted our enjoyment of rooms with views and upgraded us to a corner room on a higher floor. Everything at the hotel was beautiful and comfortable. It was obviously exceptionally well managed and all staff knew exactly how to make guests welcome.

And, with a flair for presentation, you can trust that each meal looks as good as it tastes. For laid-back dining, creative house cocktails and late night DJ sets, City Bar hits all the right notes. While SkyBar, up on the roof terrace, is fast becoming one of El Born’s hottest hangouts.

City Restaurant

Served Meals: Breakfast City Restaurant is part bistro- part gastropub. Serving market-fresh Mediterranean cuisine. The menu features traditional dishes updated with fresh local produce of the best possible quality. The food has a classical foundation- with nods to international cuisine and loads of flavour. In addition to our varied menu- every day -except at the weekend- we have a Midday set menu for those looking for a place to meet up-work- read a good book or magazine- or just enjoy the music and the views.

City Bar

Located between the Gothic and the Born neighbourhoods City Bar offers a wide offering of tapas- creative cocktails- like the Mosco and Lola with vodka- pepper and Earl Grey tea and classic fare like the Old Fashioned served in an elegant and welcoming space against the backdrop of a carefully selected musical score. The City Bar can also be reserved for private events- meetings and parties catering for up to 150 people in a customised experience.

Sky Bar

Anyone taking the lift from the Grand Hotel Central lobby and emerging into the SkyBar will be immediately struck by one of the most extraordinary outdoor spaces and views over the city that Barcelona has to offer. A rooftop bar and restaurant that is suspended within the city skyline with an infinity pool to one side and a terrace lounge area with cocktail bar on the other featuring comfortable seating and sun canopies.
