Grand Hotel Central Barcelona
Offering amazing city views from its sensational rooftop infinity pool, this boutique hotel combines the Art Deco grandeur of its 1920s roots with the service and facilities of a luxury, contemporary city hotel.
Rooms feature crisp white linens, spotless glass doors and luxurious bathrooms with roomy bathtubs and toiletries from Finca Serena in Mallorca. Suites are more extravagant with high ceilings and huge windows facing out onto Via Laietana and the historic Gothic Quarter. Also close by are the labyrinthine streets of El Born, home to some of the city’s coolest bars and cafes.
Aside from the Skybar on the roof, where you can nibble on tapas and sip cocktails round the dazzling 10-metre pool, facilities include a bijou spa with a sauna, hammam and fitness room, plus Bistro Helena, a smart and stylish restaurant using fresh local produce to showcase the flavours of the Mediterranean.
