Hotel Gran Havana Barcelona
Reservation information for the Gran Havana Hotel
On a corner of Gran Via, in an imposing building dating from 1872 is the Gran Havana Hotel Barcelona. Contrasting with the exterior of the building is the simple modernity of the interior. This hotel is classy and popular with conventions, in fact when I was there the international motocross convention there.

Hotel Facilities

Grand Palace is the name of the hotel's restaurant that serves up mostly seasonal Catalan based cuisine. There is also a full buffet breakfast here every morning complete with a dieter's choice menu. In the lobby underneath the huge kidney-shaped skylight is the bar which has live piano music from  20:00 - 21:00 . Sopar & Blues takes place on the first Thursday of every month. It is an event which began 10 years ago and fuses cuisine with some live blues/ jazz music.

One of the best things about this hotel is its sun terrace and swimming pool. Here you can have a swim, relax and look out towards the mountains of Tibidabo whilst soaking up the sun. You can also book a range of massages at the hotel which cost  €60.00  an hour.

Business Facilities

The Gran Havana hotel Barcelona has a conventions department which can help with the organization and running of functions and business meetings. The meeting rooms are equipped with audiovisual resources and there is also a secretarial service and simultaneous translation facilities. There is Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.


The Gran Havana hotel Barcelona has 145 rooms. The rooms are all modern, with marble bathrooms and furniture made from African bubinga wood. The rooms have air-conditioning, a mini-bar, satellite TV, internet access and Wi-Fi. There are also 4 suites and 6 junior suites and 10 of the rooms have their own terrace. The hotel is situated on the corner of the wide Gran Via so enjoys direct sunlight for most of the day.

Hotel Location and Facilities

The Gran Havana hotel is in an up-market area of town, on a picturesque part of Gran Via. The hotel is in a central location, a 10 minute walk from Passeig de Gràcia where there is some varied shopping to be had, as well as 2 of Gaudí's most recognizable buildings. Las Ramblas is a further 5-10 minutes. There is a cash point 2 minutes down the road at number 637 and for good cafes I would recommend going to Passeig de Gràcia where you can sit outside and people watch whilst you have a coffee. There is a very old, beautiful pharmacy 5 minutes down the road towards Passeig de Gràcia as well.
