AMAZING!
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.

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.
