El Palace is without doubt an elegant and luxurious building in a wonderful position but anyone who loves travel will know that such matters are only part of the equation. It's the people who meet, greet and respond to your needs and requests who make such a difference and the management here have got it so right. From the concierge... More

After 2 weeks touring southern France we flew to Barcelona from Bordeaux for 2 nights to get a direct flight to NY. Didn't realize we would be staying in our favorite hotel of our trip. Perfect location, beautiful decor (they upgraded us to a Jr Suite) the guest relations young lady (Julie who is a huge asset to the hotel)... More

This is my second time visiting El Palace Hotel in Barcelona. I have to say I was tempted by some good deals at other hotels, but when I called the others I was either treated rudely or found lots of extra costs added on. So I called the El Palace and found them to very nice and helpful. This hotel... More

El Palace is an elegant hotel, wonderfully located. It is like staying in a beautiful hotel of the 1800's, but with all the modern conveniences. The staff is wonderful, especially Julie the concierge, who truly made our stay magical, with directions, restaurant recommendations all of which were spot on. She also went to great effort to correct an airline reservation... More

Most luxurious and beautiful hotel we've stayed in throughout Europe. Like stepping back in time, but not in a museum sort of way, as everything is shiny and new. As if the furnishings and finishings weren't enough, the customer service was the definition of above and beyond. Have to give a special shout out to Juan Carlos, in the downstairs... More

El Palace is perfect in every facet. The hotel itself is pristine beginning with the marvelous facade and the breathtaking lobby. The classic deluxe room was incredibly spacious as well as state of the art with all new furnishings and utilities, also the WiFi was perfect. The service is nothing short of first rate from the informative and friendly bellman,... More

What a wonderful hotel in the heart of Barcelona. We stayed with our two children 7 & 9 in a junior suite and we absolutely loved it. Easy walking distance to many of Barcelona destinations. (I should add we love to walk a city). We had the breakfast buffet every morning and it was a great way to start the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the hotel, very nice and clean rooms, very helpful staff, great bar downstairs with Live Music. But our favorite part was the new rooftop pool area, the staff was very attentive and it was very relaxing with a great view of the city. Highly recommend the El Palace of Barcelona.

A first class hotel in the centre of Barcelona with a lot of ambiente and perfect service. The 5*****L was absolutely ok and well-earned by the hotel until June 2015. But now they have added a spectacular roof-garden with swimming-pool, snack aerea (a restaurant is under construction) bar and a lot of room for recreation - combined with a breath-taking... 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.
