What's more depressed than the overcast sky in a damp, soppy winter day?
That's when you see a spectacular rooftop infinity pool with a panoramic backdrop, but cannot use it, exactly because it's an overcast, soppy winter day. :(
Well, at least we got to enjoy the great view just by ourselves, and have a good excuse to come back again to the Grand Hotel Central Barcelona.
Via Laietana, 30, 08003 Barcelona, Spain
The location at El Born district is perfect, with an artistic edge and a noble past. Once a seaside property for medieval aristocracy, this neighborhood now has a complementary mix of local vibe and artsy gems. Lots of great bars and restaurants hidden in the narrow alleys that lead you to the Museu Picasso, which hosts an extensive collection of this legendary Spanish cubist.
