We picked this hotel through Trip Advisor. It was elegant, fairly priced, accommodating, and very well located. The breakfasts were satisfactory. We ate our lunches and dinners elsewhere and cannot comment on the quality of the restaurant. We recommend the hotel highly.

A most relaxing and comfortable "grand" hotel with just 125 rooms in a fabulous, stylish city. We stayed in a junior suite which was of generous proportions and very well appointed. The public areas were perfect and the food good although the Michelin starred Caelis restaurant was a little disappointing. The hotel is right in the city centre as is... More

We loved absolutely everything about The Palace. It has a great location, minutes from anything you might want to see, charm, and outstanding service. You enter an elegant, beautifully maintained lobby and you're in the past--a time of quiet, calm and exquisite taste. The rooms are beautiful and I was upgraded (thanks, Leaders Club!) to a Junior Suite with couch,... More

Beautiful large bathroom. It had both a great shower and tub. Large window that opened up to get a... More

We loved this hotel. Walkable to many things in the city. Hotel was clean, food was good, service was exceptional! 20 minutes from the airport. Can walk to many restaurants. We loved Barcelona. Don't forget to go to Sagrada Familia.

This hotel is great. The staff is friendly, accommodating and speak several languages. The entire hotel is striking. The rooms are large and very comfortable. They have a great bar/lounge area in the basement with live music on certain days, which is worth a trip. They also have a restaurant in the hotel which you must check out for their... More

From the beautiful lobby to the spacious rooms, this place exudes class. The entire atmosphere is really lovely. Somehow they have managed to maintain the old world regal nature of the hotel without the stuffiness. Breakfast is served in a lovely light airy room that opens to the outside. Service is excellent. I cannot say enough about the concierge staff.... More

It was our first trip to Barcelona. Our agent at worldview travel recommended El Palace hotel to us. We stayed in the hotel for a week in July. The hotel is near the shopping district. 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

Wonderful hotel with old world charm, just up the road from the main retail area and gothic quarter. Rooms are very well appointed, staff attentive and the lounge and breakfast areas are extremely well managed and lovely to sit in. One negative item is that the 'gym' is a small room with outdated running and step machines (only 4). This... More

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
