Grand Hotel Central, Barcelona

Lie back in the infinity edge pool and admire the view – the wonderful skyline of Spain’s most vivacious city is at your feet. And a setting in the heart of Barcelona is just one of the reasons the Grand Hotel Central is a prime destination for people who strive to be part of the soul of the cities they’re visiting.

Stroll around the hotel - or look at the careful detailing and décor of your suite – and you’ll feel the atmosphere of a bygone age; the energy of a bright new world of innovative fashion, youthfulness, music and dancing. And you’ll understand why the Grand Central has been so unfailingly appealing to the great travellers, avant-garde thinkers and aesthetically-aware visitors to Barcelona, down through the decades.

  • We have travelled with The Ultimate Travel Company six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. Given our obvious satisfaction with Ultimate, we had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was unfortunately cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble. When travel becomes viable again we would definitely rebook with them.
