The Grand Hotel Central in Barcelona, located in an elegant 1926 building just a few steps from the Santa Eulalia cathedral and the city’s ancient walls, is a classic, elegant and timeless site. Like the grand hotels of the 1920s, it offers exceptional service and great attention to detail. Efficiency, discretion and generosity are the key words of this establishment designed to enchant its clients. The spacious and luminous 147 rooms and suites are decorated with simplicity, a sense of avant-garde chic and always in good taste. The modern and hospitable Avalon Restaurant Café, directed by prize winning chef, Ramon Reixa, offers guests a highly inventive menu. On the 7th floor, the Wellbeing, with its private massage room is a wellness sanctuary, and on the roof, the magnificent infinity swimming pool has an unparalleled view of the city. The Grand Hotel, a veritable oasis in wonderfully urban Barcelona, is truly worthy of its name.


Spain is a land of exceptions. Since the return of democracy in 1975, the Iberian monarchy has become synonymous with holidays in the sun, cultural wealth, unequalled hospitality and fiestas! Geographically speaking, Spain represents a pallet of landscapes ranging from arid deserts to lush, festive coasts. From the cultural point of view, there are a multitude of languages, influences and monuments totally unique in Europe. From Andalusia, the birthplace of flamenco to the Costa del Sol, not to mention the lands in the south, visitors can find anything they want including a nightlife for which the country is famous. One of the cities with a great reputation in this domain is Barcelona, the cultural capital of Spain and a flourishing, surprising city. As the second largest city in terms of population with its five million inhabitants, Barcelona, in addition to being a major financial center, is also a city with an incredibly rich cultural heritage including the works of the renowned architect Antonio Gaudi and the vestiges of a long and fascinating past. One of the most emblematic quarters, the Barri Gotic, the oldest in the city is of particular interest since it’s here that that the city had its origins as a Roman village and also where we find the most modern boutiques and hotels.

See Barcelona and swim!
