A classic hotel with all of the modern amenities. Truly beautiful. Great rooms, modern bathrooms with great showers. Friendly staff. Great food. Perfect location. Was once the Ritz. Concierge was very helpful.

Stop and look no further. We have traveled well and the EL Palace ranks amongst the best. Barcelona is a busy and compelling city. This hotel is perfectly located and offers a top notch professional staff to assist your every need. There is a hush upon entering. Please take a moment and enter the main lobby looking to the bar...

It was our first trip to Barcelona and we wanted to take in as much of the city as possible in the week that we were there. El Palace is perfectly situated for walking to most of the well known attractions but is on a main transit route so you can easily take the bus, which is what the concierge... More

Just returned from two night stay in Barcelona following a 7 day cruise of the Mediterranean. We arrived early on a Saturday morning and only had a short wait until our room was available. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very helpful and friendly. A visit to the Mayan Spa is a must. Bed and pillows very comfortable.... More

I just returned from 5 nights in Barcelona with my husband at this hotel. We had previously stayed in the hotel two years ago and returned because we had such a pleasant stay last time. I arrived from a stay in Nice at a really bad hotel (that should have been good) so I really appreciated the El Palace. The... More

A weekend break to Barcelona was made more memorable and a truly wonderful experience due to our stay at El Palace Hotel. Set in the heart of Barcelona and walking distance to most attractions the reception received on arrival and throughout our stay was second to non. The staff bent over backwards to be as helpful as possible whenever possible.... More

We stayed in the hotel one night prior to a cruise. The staff was perfect. We waited in the grand lobby for a short time for the room to be ready. It was the perfect place to rest after a long flight. We were in the room in no time. The room was large and the bathroom was modern and... More

If you are looking for gracious hospitality and old world luxury, this is the place. Additionally, the location was safe and perfect for accessing various neighborhoods inBarcelona such as the port, Eixample, El Barri Gotic, and El Born. Staff are very courteous, attentive, and knowledgable. The rooms are quite large by European standards with nice bathrooms. Very important!

Magnificent, fully restored hotel in the heart of Barcelona. It's really a throwback to the old, grand hotels of Europe. The rooms are lovely and well-appointed. Not huge, but more than adequate. The renovations were very well thought-out, since the closet and bathrooms were fantastic. Great service! Wonderful breakfast. Walking distance to the city park, zoo, placa Catalunya, and other...

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.
