Stayed here twice now. Has a 'Grand Hotel' feel about. Magnificent lounge area and really nice courtyard set up for breakfast. Rooms large, nicely furnished. Nice large bathroom. Comfortable bed. Cool bar in the basement. Room service comes quickly even at breakfast peak time. What more could you want!

It's a lovely gorgeous historical building .. Once I stepped in, I had to appreciate all the efforts made to transform the very old building - opened in 1919 - into a luxurious atmosphere. Accommodation: Comforting spacious rooms, with classic european style.. Nice equipped bathroom, with a bathtub and walk-in shower. It's wonderful, isn't ! Comments: I would appreciate if... More

Fantastic hotel in the heart of Barcelona. Classic luxury with extremely comfortable rooms. Top notch service from all members of staff. We booked this hotel based on many positive reviews on tripadvisor- and were definitely not disapointed. Check in was easy and quick- just what we needed after a 32 hour journey. We got upgraded to a suite- which was... More

Formerly a Ritz (a fact you must tell taxi drivers, because there are about five hotels in Barcelona which use the word Palace), this is a hotel in grand Old World style. My room was quite spacious and quiet, with a nicely appointed bathroom. Unfortunately all the chairs and the sofa were just not well-designed, and I couldn't relax on... More

We booked this hotel based on many positive reviews and certainly were not disappointed. This is a beautiful hotel with very professional, friendly and attentive staff. They were very accommodating and we were able to check-in early which was nice traveling from overseas. The room and the bathroom were spacious, comfortable and beautiful. Our favorite by far was the beautiful... More

I booked to celebrate my wife’s 40th birthday and I have to say we wasn’t disappointed, the facilities were spectacular, staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the hotel restaurant and Caelis (amazing see review) and drank in the Jazz & Cocktail bar. All this and Barcelona its self-made it a very memorable birthday.

All of our requests were regarded with attention and the hotel staff was also very helpful in advising us when going to touristic places (saved us allot of time). The room was very well designed, comfortable and big. Great Breakfast. We had a wonderful stay. I highly... More

With so many hotels to choose from in Barcelona, we selected El Palace Hotel for its size and location. Spacious, well appointed rooms. Extremely helpful and attentive staff. Rein de Rein Cocktail Club downstairs is a great place to wind down with a G&T at the end of the evening.

From the minute we walked in, we felt like royalty. The hotel is a true palace. The design is magnificent. Rooms are spacious and very pampering. Breakfast buffet has a very large variety and everything is simply delicious. very good location, within minutes walk from Placa Catalunya. We loved staying here and would love to come back.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable 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 recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
