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.
