Wonderful stay! Great staff! Very efficient concierge! I spent 3 nights at El Palace Hotel with my wife and parents. The experience was fantastic. Growing up in Europe, I was pleased to know that classic European hospitality still exists.

We spent 2 nights at the hotel and can safely say the service was outstanding, from the moment we arrived and were greeted by Caterina to when we left following a cheery 'adios' from the doorman. We stayed in the Junior Suite (223) which was beautiful, spacious, modern and comfortable...with a shower to die for! Breakfast was excellent and served... More

Thirty years ago, having just taken the bar exam, I celebrated by backpacking through Europe. It was late summer, 1983 when I stepped off the train and hiked my way throughout the Rambla of Barcelona. Barcelona was the last of the many cities I visited on my six week sojourn so I was now an "experienced" traveler. Nothing I had... More

It takes a huge commitment to maintain a glorious old building to this standard and a huge commitment is what you get when you stay in this wonderful hotel.

The former Ritz Hotel in Barcelona, El Palace maintains high standards of service, but is a bit faded in appearance. We had a dimly light, inner, light-well room. (I probably could have raised it as an issue, as it was listed in the "Deluxe" category. I chose not to do so, as we were spending much of our time out... More

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.
