El Palace is a wonderful hotel - well located, well maintained. Our room was large and the bathroom was well lit and modern. Breakfasts were good with lots of choices and the service was first rate. The only issue I have with the hotel was that they did not provide bottled water in the room. Every other 5 star hotel... More

The El Palace was previously known as The Ritz and the plaque on the floor is still there. We arrived quite early in the... More

I truly enjoyed staying at this hotel , which is locate don GRANVIA which is like almost like a 10-15 minute walk to LA RAMBLA. This hotel is best suited for guests who appreciate gourmet food than fast food ! It was built in 1919 and they have been successful in maintaining the look and the style , which nowadays... More

This is the last of our stays in Spain and it ain't no Langhams, Penninsula or the Ritz. If you are from Australia or America you will be disappointed. The most courteous person here is the American porter as you arrive ( he's lived here for 14 years). The service in the lobby is average. The wine list is poor.... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in Barcelona this past June. Everything about the hotel was first rate. Our room was quiet and spacious. It had all the amenities that you would expect in a 5 star hotel. The concierge staff was extremely helpful with directions and making dinner reservations for us. The included breakfast was very good and... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the palace hotel in Barcelona . The hotel is very elegant and beautiful. We were welcomed upon arrival and although it was early, our room was ready. The concierge was very helpful in recommending restaurants, sightseeing and arranging a car and driver for one trip. They showed us on the map where... More

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

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
