The El Palace Hotel is the Old Ritz hotel and the style of the hotel is very grand, beautiful chandeliers everywhere and the stair case in the lobby is very grand. At the check in we were greeted with friendly service and the room key was issued by the Concierge in the main lobby of the hotel. We had room... More

El Palace knows how to treat their customers. From the moment we arrived we were pampered. Each and every staff member is attentive but not overbearing. Every request we made was addressed promptly. The concierge services, as well as all the other services, were exemplary. The hotel itself is beautiful and immaculate. Even our late lunch the day of our... More

We spent three nights in the hotel as a treat and can only describe it as faultless. The staff were extremely helpful without being intrusive and the rooms superb. Yes, expensive, but great value. The hotel has retained all of its former glamour and a great way to spend a long weekend.

The lobby of the hotel will definitely leave you breathless. It's like living to a palace. The title of the hotel cannot be more representative of what you will see. The breakfast is one of the most diverse I have ever tasted. Of course, it's pricey but you have to take it at least for one day. The rooms are... More

We arrived in the morning and our room was ready, so we took advantage of having a few hours resting in our beautful, spacious room! The best linens and towels in a spacious marble bathroom. The inviting lobby is adorned with luxurious couches , chairs, tables and chandeliers. The staff, concierge and front desk are first rate and very helpful.... More

Grand and old style hotel, but in excellent condition and supported by a wonderful and able staff. Location is good...betwixt and between so many of Barcelona's best places to tour. The care and attention of the staff is outstanding. The lounge/lobby and the breakfast room are impressive gathering places. We were upgraded to a suite...tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, quiet. Impressive... More

We stayed here as the final stop on a 2 week plus vacation. It was a great place to unwind and prepare to head for home. There are several must see locations with in walking distance. Go see the Barcelona Music Hall. La Sagrada Familia is a good walk but worth it. Several Gaudi buildings are close by. The Picasso... More

Great Hotel in a convenient location. We arrived mid day on a Friday and our room was available. A smooth check in and we settled in for 4 day of all that Barcelona has to offer. The hotel is located just @ the edge of the Bari Gotic and it certainly is the corner of walk and don't walk (very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Palace Hotel has been totally refurbished and reopened late 2009. The works have preserved the classic spirit that has always characterised this property, distinguished as a symbol of Barcelona’s hotel tradition. Set in the heart of the city centre, close to Las Ramblas and in the most prestigious shopping area, it is surrounded by boulevards, theatres and main banks. It has an excellent transport connections and it is just 20 min from el Prat Airport.After the restoration, the Hotel will have 125 rooms, 42 of which will be suites and junior suites, all equipped with last-generation technology. A new room design, a soft interior re-decoration of public areas and lounges and the realignment and optimisation of the architectural infrastructure will enhance the beauty and majesty of our Hotel like in the 20’s. ... more   less
