This is an incredible hotel. Do yourself a favor and stay here if you visit Barcelona. It used to be the Ritz, and the service, ambiance and decor are absolutely in line with the my fond memories of the Ritz in our hometown. I can't imagine a better place to stay in Barcelona. It was within walking distance of most... More

We spent one week in Barcelona and really enjoyed the hotel. Spacious room, caring personel, everything is designed for you to simply relax and enjoy the city. The Spa is a must go. One enhancement potentially: having coffee and tea in the room

El Palace used to be called The Ritz in Barcelona. It used to be part of the same Ritz group as Paris & London. Hence, El Palace is, by itself, an icon. Yet there are some small details which lower this hotel to my 4 star rating.. The hotel itself is a "must-see" in this amazing city. Once you enter... More

We visit the hotel in 2014. It located in a very central location, walking distance to major shopping centre. The buffet breakfast is very nice among the five star hotel we visited, it even have some Asian elements in it, which is a nice touch. When we check in, the guest relation manager, she especially welcomed us and shower us... More

My wife and I spent 5 days in el palace Barcelona (April 3-7, 2015) and although it might sound a cliché it was unforgettable wonderful experience. The location is perfect –lively but honorable and safe, 2 minutes’ walk from Placa Catalunya,and Passeig de Gracia, or in the other directions straight to Rambla and then short to the Gothic and old...

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.
