A historic stay in Barcelona's beating heart

Celebrate the culture and creativity of the Catalan capital

Located in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter on the emblematic via Layetana, the five-star Grand Hotel Central sits between bohemian El Born, glistening beaches, famous Las Ramblas, and the sophisticated shops of Paseo de Gràcia, putting the city’s cultural, gastronomic, and creative treasures within easy reach.

Housed within an imposing rationalist building from 1924, the hotel’s interiors were completely refurbished and reimagined in 2024 to offer increased comfort and style. Inspired by Catalan Noucentisme style, the new Grand Hotel Central honours the building’s history and the fascinating life of its founder, Francesc Cambó, a revered politician and patron of the arts. 

A relaxed, residential feel coupled with attentive service will ensure you feel right at home, while a range of guest experiences from morning yoga sessions on the rooftop, treatments in our urban spa and gastronomic delights at the restaurant, to a lively calendar of events, and visits to local artisans and wineries, will allow you to experience the city in your own style.
