Expectations met at Grand Hotel Central

Great service, terrific rooftop, convenient location
My friends and I enjoyed our 3 nights at the Grand Hotel Central. We spent each afternoon at the rooftop pool after a day of touring Barcelona. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location was great for us. Very convenient to shops/bars/restaurants.

In the middle of everything

location, infront of the church
We had an excellent stay in this hotel. We travelled as a group of 3 families with an infant, a toddler and 6 year old. The staff were all excellent. and the location is best for going to places.

Great location and pool

Pool, location, free wifi
Staff performance is poor at the pool bar. Slow service - probably because the pool isnt reserved for paying hotel guests, but they allow everyone in. So dont pay for the hotel, just use their pool for free!

Great pool

Roof top pool, location, wifi
Hotel is in great location, and has a great roof top pool - but unfortunately it is public and open to even non-hotel guests making it extremely busy and hard to get a bed Beer prices are steep too at 6 euro a beer

Nice hotel in great location

location, pool, sun deck
We enjoyed a couple of days at the grand hotel central very friendly helpful staff on reception but poor service on the sun deck. Hotel is well located with good amenities however I don't feel it deserves five stars as bathroom was a little tatty service on rooftop poolside was not great and breakfast food selection a little dated i.e. no fresh juices or vegetable options.
