The Grand Central Hotel is regarded as one of Barcelona’s finest, with a string of awards and rave reviews to its name. Built in 1926, the building has been completely renovated with 147 elegant, modern rooms flooded with natural light. The star of the show is the rooftop infinity pool and terrace bar, where holiday makers can swim a few lazy laps or sip a cocktail while admiring panoramic views over the city. The sophisticated, luxurious mood continues at the onsite Avalon Restaurant and Café, which is helmed by Michelin-starred chef Ramon Freixa.
No visit to Barcelona would be complete without a tour of the architect Gaudi’s wacky masterpieces. First stop for many is the awe-inspiring La Sagrada Familia, an immense neo-Gothic cathedral which was started in 1882 and remains unfinished to this day. Continue on to Park Güell, a fairytale garden with beautiful mosaics and great views; before rounding up the Gaudi tour at mind-bending residential buildings Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Art lovers should check out the Picasso Museum or the Miro Gallery in Montjuïc, while foodies relish the atmospheric Boqueria market. Finish the day with a stroll down Las Ramblas and a glass of sangria overlooking the ocean.
Grand Hotel Central is located in the hip El Born area of Barcelona, within walking distance of the seafront, Las Ramblas, and Barcelona’s best shopping and nightlife. The hotel is right beside Barcelona Cathedral and offers spectacular views over the Gothic district and ancient city walls.

Sitting by the rooftop infinity pool at Grand Hotel Central, Barcelona, watching the evening light disappear, we feel serene and just a little smug. Surely no one else in this crowded city can be watching the pink sun sink into water on this particular evening?
