We arrived at the hotel around noon and had to wait for our room. As we waited in the hotel lounge, we were greeted by... More

Stayed here with our family of four for one night before departing on a cruise ship. Old school hotel without the stuffy atmosphere. From the moment we arrived my family was treated like a royal family. Although the room was not yet ready (we arrived around 1:00 p.m.) we were taken to the bar area and given free drinks. The...

The palatial El Palace is gorgeous with the most well done lobby ever! The location is just a 8 minute walk from the busy Plaza Catalunaya, where all the action is. The hotel comes to life with the excellent staff which was very warm and helpful each time we asked for assistance… Special mention to the ever smiling door man... More

Old world opulence with all the trimmings of today's modern world. Impeccable service from top management to porter, large rooms with decor fit for a palace. Location was perfectly placed, and very convenient for shopping or exploring. I'm thrilled we chose to end our 2 week Spain adventure here for 3 nights.

The location was convenient to everywhere we wanted to go for exploring and eating. I would recommend this hotel to the most discerning... More

Everything about this hotel is truly exceptional. It is located conveniently close to Placa Catalunya, shopping, the Gothic section and wonderful dining. From the moment we arrived, no matter who we encountered, the staff could not have been more helpful, pleasant and engaging. The hotel itself is wonderfully appointed. The first floor lounge is beautiful and we always looked forward... More
