We loved our stay at El Palace. The hotel is indeed a palace - everything spotless, the staff perfect, the rooms and surroundings luxurious. Great breakfast, wonderful rooftop bar. So many touches, small and big, to make for a memorable stay. This was a crowning cap to our four week European trip. Made Barcelona special for us.

This hotel deserves a review, but I suspect it's clientele are not the usual TA readers. 1) It is the old Ritz, and lives up to the name. All class. The approach reveals an incredible facade of old world charm. The doormen friendly and helpful. Reception and concierge area are quaint but effective. After this, one enters a second smaller...

Beautiful hotel with very good service in a convenient location. For the price, the air conditioner should work/not be on a governor -- it was very hot. Also, if you are looking for a non-smoking room, look elsewhere. We had a non-smoking room but sill smelled smoke.

We were fortunate to stay at the hotel for four days the first of May. I am particular on a number of things when it comes to hotels and this one was high on most of my criteria.

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.

“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. ”
