Grand Hotel Central Review

At the edge of the Gothic Quarter, very near the Barcelona cathedral, this fashionable midtown hideaway is popular with business and pleasure travelers alike. Rooms are flawlessly decorated in streamlined furniture and neutral textiles, and they're equipped with high-tech design features, from flat-screen TVs to DSL hookups. The restaurant, Avalon, is known for creative cuisine in an elegant, minimalist setting, while the roof terrace and top-floor pool offer a unique perch over the city's 2,000-year-old Roman and Gothic central nucleus. The higher the better is the rule here, as street level can be noisy, soundproofing or not.
