We spent three nights in the hotel as a treat and can only describe it as faultless. The staff were extremely helpful without being intrusive and the rooms superb. Yes, expensive, but great value. The hotel has retained all of its former glamour and a great way to spend a long weekend.

The lobby of the hotel will definitely leave you breathless. It's like living to a palace. The title of the hotel cannot be more representative of what you will see. The breakfast is one of the most diverse I have ever tasted. Of course, it's pricey but you have to take it at least for one day. The rooms are...

Grand and old style hotel, but in excellent condition and supported by a wonderful and able staff. Location is good...betwixt and between so many of Barcelona's best places to tour. The care and attention of the staff is outstanding. The lounge/lobby and the breakfast room are impressive gathering places. We were upgraded to a suite...tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, quiet. Impressive...

Great Hotel in a convenient location. We arrived mid day on a Friday and our room was available. A smooth check in and we settled in for 4 day of all that Barcelona has to offer. The hotel is located just @ the edge of the Bari Gotic and it certainly is the corner of walk and don't walk (very...

This was our first visit to Barcelona and we wanted location, comfort and service. El Palace's staff could not do enough for us. They guided us to the best restaurants, even the best tapas restaurants, were fabulous. We were celebrating an anniversary and were given an immediate room upgrade. The bed was extremely comfortable & the bathroom was marble, double...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

“Room was nice. Hotel was a bit stuffy. The staff was hard to communicate with as not to many people speak english. The restaurant was very over priced with a limited menu. Decided to give it a try one evening. Sat down and waited for service for almost 20 minutes. Decided to leave. ”
