Barcelona was our last stop on an 18-day tour of Spain and Portugal--a mother/daughter adventure with my adult daughter that did not end well due to one inappropriately aggressive and rude woman behind the reception desk. I would have given the hotel a better rating, but it only takes one very unpleasant experience to tarnish one's perception of a hotel--and...

El Palace Hotel is a beautiful gem of a hotel combining old world architecture, grace and service with post-modern conveniences such as HDTV, internet, roman-style tub and separate shower. All of its staff are committed to the enjoyment and comfort of their guests - service comes first, from the door man who actually opens and holds doors to the concierge...

Everything about the Palace Hotel was fabulous - the staff, the room, the location, etc. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet as well. The concierge was very helpful - both before and during our visit. We arrived at the Palace hotel after a long flight and it was the start of our vacation it couldn't have been more perfect!

A great place to stay if you're looking to holiday in style. The hotel lives up to its name - it's like being in a palace indeed. The entrance is understated but when you get past the concierge and into the saloon, it's a beautiful and spacious room and a great place to sit, have tea and just relax. The...

Stayed here for 2 nights with my husband in April. Hotel is very nice and smaller than our other Spain hotels. Location was very good-very walkable to many things. A quick taxi ride to the train station. The hotel was beautiful and had a large elegant room where you could sit and read or talk, on the main level. The...

Located in a quiet neighborhod, just off of Passeig de Gracia, on the Gran Via de les Cortes Catalanes, this wonderful hotel is a totally updated experience that still captures the magic and history of old Barcelona. Within short walking distance of the Gothic Quarter, the Sagrada Familia, and the Casa Battlo, it's the ideal place to stay. The staff...

The hotel Palace, is the former Barcelona Ritz. It was revamped a few years ago and looks great. The grand salon is very impressive, with nice pieces of furnitures. Breakfast room is pleasant, and I guess it is at the air during warm days. Buffet breakfast is very nice. The rooms are of decent size, and bathrooms are modern. Nothing...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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.
