Nice hotel 10 minutes from beach

Posted 25-May-2016
Very helpful staff, lovely restaurant. Couldn't take full advantage of roof terrace & pool due to cool wind. Only complaint would be not a lot of wardrobe space to hang 2 people's clothes for 5 days!

Executive room was toooo small!!!

Posted 23-May-2016
We were there for 2 nights. Staff was good, but did not have time to explain or help me guide where to start exploring the city. They were very accomodating with my early check - in request. Worst part was the exectuive room which is supposed to be better than their standard room was soooo small that only one person can walk through the space between the bed and the wall. We had our luggage in the walk way!!! I asked them for a bigger room but they consistently said, this is the best in the class of booking. I really cant imagine what must be a standard room. I live in brooklyn n I know how small rooms can get but this was something!!! the best part is the location, its close to everything. Public transport is minutes away, but for the price you pay, u can get many other hotels in this area.

Sehr laute Zimmer mit schlechter Schallisolierung, auch in hohen Stockwerken. Es führt eine stark befahrene Strasse direkt am Hotel vorbei. Unbedingt Zimmer nach hinten verlangen, das Hotelpersonal ist dabei leider etwas unwillig behilflich. Fenster lassen sich nur bedingt öffnen, Klimaanlage funktioniert aber gut.

Five star hotel with excellent customer service

Posted 23-Apr-2016
Pros: Everything, the staff were outstanding, hotel was amazing, music was outstanding which I didn't pic up from previous reviews. Excellent do, food fab
Cons: Nothing - everything was perfect
Location: Hotel located on the gothic quarter which was great as we loved to spend our time walking through the old town streets - lots to see
hotel and staff were outstanding. We arrived early and the hotel did everything they could to get our room ready in half an hour. We were given complimentary drinks on the roof top bar whilst we waited and the concierge brought our room key to the bar and our luggage had been taken to our room. We were celebrating my husbands birthday on the trip and the member of staff who checked us in, had the best customer service skills I have encountered. I can't believe I don't remember his name as I would have liked to mention it on the post. We got our room upgraded, complimentary breakfast, cava in the room the following day and in the bar later that night my husband got a cake with a candle in it. The background music in the hotel along with the dj on Friday and sat, just took the visit to a new level for us- outstanding. The food was exceptional and all staff in the hotel couldn't do enough to help. We plan to visit Barcelona again and this hotel will be our first choice every time

Great location, teriffic staff

Posted 05-Apr-2016
Pros: The service and its location on the edge of El Born and the Gothic Quarter
Cons: Some more lights in the room and the addition of a hand rail on the shower wall.
Location: The location of Grand Hotel Central is ideal. It is within easy walking distance of the Gothic Cathedral, the Picasso Museum, the Ramblas, etc.
We spent four nights at Grand Hotel Central. When we arrived from our cruise ship at 8:30, our room was ready. We had a deluxe room, which was a good size, very modern with a good sized bathroom. Our only complaints were that the room was quite dark, unless you had the window shades up (not an option at night) and the bed was soft. There was a shower over bath, but there was no mat or hand rail and a real danger of slipping. The staff was teriffic. They provided super guidance for diverse restaurants within walking distance. We also could rent the hotel's car and driver for tours of Montserrat and trips to the airport, both at reasonable rates. The breakfast was a pretty comprehensive buffet.
