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... More

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... More

Of the three hotels we stayed at in Spain, this was our favorite. Now, you should be prepared that to get there by taxi, you have to say it used to the Ritz (lots of hotel using the word "Palace" gets the cabbies a little confused). You are warmly greeted and assisted with the heavy doors every time you enter... More

The El Palace is absolutely spectacular with old-class grandeur. The hotel is in an excellent location, close to Placa Catalunya and within easy walking distance of most sites. The public areas, such as the large lobby, are indeed like a palace. Staff is very accommodating and helpful. El Palace offers free Wi-Fi. The breakfast buffet is served in the covered... More

The title of this hotel does not disappoint. El Palace is great, the rooms are spectacular and the location is prime for those who like being near everything, but not necessarily in the loud, busy hustle and bustle. The concierge is great and the hotel maintains old-class splendor as the keys are still turn key and you can leave them... More

Nice clean hotel with rooms recently updated. Staff was terrific. Location worked well as it is a short walk to most major sites. Only real complaint was that the fitness room was very small and didn't have great equipment. Plus, our room was at the end of the hall and there is construction going on in the building next door.... More

Th internal 1 michelin star restaurant (Caleis) is worth the money and i will not be surprised if shortly it will get a second one. Good services provided with the help of a valid concierge.
