The Palace is an old extensively renovated hotel. If you like the combination of a 100 years old hotel with modern amenities , this is a good pick. The combination makes it romantic - it will earn you plenty of Kitchen passes... The staff is very friendly !!! Cons: Breakfast : Very expensive ! the coffee shop across the street... More

Classy hotel with very good service from everyone. From the public relations manager to the concierge , etc.. We got upgraded, aditional amenities, etc.The only complaint is if they do give you the upgrades they shoul include the american breakfast instead of the continental.

Most definitely the option you can find in Barcelona. My wife and I had a great time there and Would definitely stay at this hotel again. In terms of service, quality, cleanliness and attention to detail, this would be among the very best places I can remember ever staying at. I highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the El Palace in Barcelona at the end of a three week whirlwind trip through the Middle East and Mediterranean, and so were pretty wiped out. But, the hotel was wonderful - classic, old school style and rooms with updated appointments and top notch service. Location is within walking distance of many sites or from an on-off... More

Just came back from our holiday stay at the El Palace. We were there for New Year's Eve celebrations and stayed at the hotel for 6 nights (party of 3). We were kindly upgraded to a suite to accommodate for 3 people (we had requested an additional bed at time of booking). Hotel itself was charming, classic-ly old romantic. The... More

Very lovely old hotel. We had a suite which was very comfortable. Every employee at the hotel was extremely helpful, most of all the concierge. Every question was answered very completely and they went out of their way to help us have a memorable. stay.

If you're looking for a five star hotel, keep looking. The Palace is not it. We were debating between the Palace and the Hotel Arts and very much regret our choice. Pros: the Palace location (Given we were traveling in December we wanted to be close to the sites as opposed to the beach). The bathroom was modern and spacious... More

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.
