The dominant 1920s façade of Grand Hotel Central hides a very contemporary retreat known for its stylish roof terrace complete with an infinity pool.
Barcelona just loves the concoction of historic architecture and contemporary designs and Grand Hotel Central is just another fine example.
On the outside, it is grand and worthy of its historic surroundings. While on the inside the 169 rooms have been furnished to high standards of crisp white linen, polished wooden floors and soft modern furnishing. Items such as fast internet, the latest hi-tech gadgets, and luxury bathrooms with anti-steam mirrors come as standard.
