Grand Hotel Central
Time Out says
Charming Born hotel with one of the best pools in the city on its roof
You'd hardly know you were in the heart of Barcelona once you're inside Born's most in-demand hotel: the place is wonderfully quiet, with Hitchcockian corridors opening up onto sleekly appointed rooms. The big bedrooms exhibit a contemporary edge, with modern furniture, industrial-style windows (some of which look out onto the Plaça Ramón) and nicely planned mod cons.
The real charm of the hotel lies on the roof. Here you can sip a cocktail and admire the wonderful views while floating in the vertiginous infinity pool. There's also a swish cocktail bar and Mediterranean restaurant on the ground floor.
