Spain is a land of exceptions. Since the return of democracy in 1975, the Iberian monarchy has become synonymous with holidays in the sun, cultural wealth, unequalled hospitality and fiestas! Geographically speaking, Spain represents a pallet of landscapes ranging from arid deserts to lush, festive coasts. From the cultural point of view, there are a multitude of languages, influences and monuments totally unique in Europe. From Andalusia, the birthplace of flamenco to the Costa del Sol, not to mention the lands in the south, visitors can find anything they want including a nightlife for which the country is famous. One of the cities with a great reputation in this domain is Barcelona, the cultural capital of Spain and a flourishing, surprising city. As the second largest city in terms of population with its five million inhabitants, Barcelona, in addition to being a major financial center, is also a city with an incredibly rich cultural heritage including the works of the renowned architect Antonio Gaudi and the vestiges of a long and fascinating past. One of the most emblematic quarters, the Barri Gotic, the oldest in the city is of particular interest since it’s here that that the city had its origins as a Roman village and also where we find the most modern boutiques and hotels.
The Grand Hotel Central is in the heart of the historical quarter of Barcelona, in a building dating back to 1926. The hotel pays tribute to the grand hotels of the 1920s whose reputation was founded on exceptional service and great attention to detail. It represents a return to the source of luxury and a refreshing return as well. The Grand Hotel Central combines elegance, classicism and charm in a literally timeless environment. What counts here is total client satisfaction by giving guests the optimum hotel experience. Efficiency, discretion and generosity are the key worlds of this hotel, which provides a fabulous bridge between the historical side of the city and the contemporary aspirations of its visitors. Located a few steps from Saint Eulalie Cathedral with its historic murals, the hotel is designed to enchant and to welcome its guests to a true sanctuary of well being. All of the 147 rooms and suites have large windows for maximum sunshine and light. The decor is simple, chic, avant-garde and always in excellent taste. As a true oasis in wonderfully urban Barcelona, the Grand Hotel has earned its name. The ultimate attraction of the hotel however, is on the rooftop terrace with a magnificent infinity swimming pool and an equally magnificent view of the very special skyline of this picturesque metropolis.
The hotel’s Avalon Restaurant & Café is directed by the renowned chef, Ramon Freixa, and is a perfect way to prolong the sensations of the rooftop experience.
