The Grand Hotel Central in Barcelona was devised as a tribute to the grand hotels that were home to great travellers and merchants in major cities worldwide during the 1920s. Much more than hotels, these buildings were centres of activity where visitors stayed to enjoy long periods of leisure and, above all, to experience the city. Travelling by train or staying in a grand hotel symbolized a whole way of life, where special service and quality touches made all the difference.
The hotel was built in the 1920s as one of the first structures on the Via Laietana. Most of the buildings on this avenue were erected at the very same time and were inspired by the elegant rationalist fashionable in Chicago at the time. The Grand Hotel Central offers a new concept of luxury in a five-star hotel, with a wide range of spaces in the heart of the city, unique views, an atmosphere of calm and refuge from the hectic urban surroundings, an innumerable series of special touches, and a staff dedicated to guest satisfaction and top-quality services, enabling you to get the most of your stay at the hotel.
Heading up the project is the entrepreneur Pau Guardans, creator of other luxury urban hotels like the renowned Hotel Único (Madrid) and the luxury boutique The Principal Hotel also in Madrid.
