Location, staff & clean
Very good. Staff very good,location great & clean.
Matthew K. Couples United Kingdom, June 6, 2015
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!
Matthew K. Couples United Kingdom, June 6, 2015
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
Simon P. Couples United Kingdom, June 2, 2015
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.

Lovely room, great staff and good bar.
Wonderful and the hotel was so close to the Cathederal, the Picasso museum and some of Gaudi's work. The staff are excellent ! We will definitely return and recommend his hotel to our friends !
