Located in the World Trade Centre building on Moll de Barcelona, Five-Star Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel offers an ideal combination of luxury accommodation, great views and an enviable business location, and incidentally it is one of the few GL Hotels in Barcelona, which stands for Gran Luxe or Great Luxury.
The whole building, which is designed to look like an ocean liner, cuts a striking figure as you look out across Port Vell, Barcelona’s old port, from the bottom of La Rambla, which is just a few minutes walk away.
It is here that you’ll Metro Drassanes, the nearest metro station, but as the Grand Marina has its own car park, you might consider hiring a car in Barcelona, when you arrive at Barcelona Airport.
The luxurious rooms and suites at the Grand Marina are decorated in warm colours with wooden floors and all are equipped with a flatscreen satellite TV, a large desk and a bathroom with whirlpool bath.
Most rooms offer great views out into to the Mediterranean or back across the city of Barcelona and you can get even more spectacular from the rooftop terrace, which has a large swimming pool.
The hotel also has a gymnasium with cardiovascular aparatus and weights and guests can also enjoy a relaxing massage.
Given its location within the World Trade Centre complex, it should be no surprise that the Grand Marina is particularly well equipped with meeting rooms, of which there are four with capacities ranging from 35 to 600.
In the Restaurante Aire de Mar, the hotel also has a top-class restaurant offering Mediterranean fusion cuisine under the guiding hand of chef Miquel Fuxà.
