The personalized service you receive from the moment the Doormen greets you is just a taste of the experience that awaits you at this fabulous hotel. All aspects exceeded expectations including size of the rooms, quality of the food, and most importantly, service, service, service! The Concierges' (Idalija, Alex, Santiago, et.al.) are the best I have ever encountered, anywhere. A... More

We have just returned from a stay at the El Palace (formelry the Ritz), and for first-time visitors to Barcelona it was worth every moment. This hotel is a snapshot of a bygone era, constructed in the early twentieth century and catering to well-heeled guests for many years it shines in this busy and modern city. Our room was a... More

After we docked in Barcelona on our cruise on the Silver Spirit, we spent 2 nights at this hotel. Very impressed. Nice modern room with king bed. Helpful staff. Located in middle of nice areas of City. Pleased with selection.

From the moment we entered the lobby, we knew we'd be pampered and well cared for guests of this beautiful newly recently rennovated hotel. As Virtuoso clients we were immediately upgraded to junior suites -- beautifully appointed, large rooms with spa-like bathrooms and L'Occitaine products. Continental breakfast was so much more than we anticiapted in a beautiful garden setting with... More

My junior suite was delightful. The concierge was knowledgeable and helpful. The gym is not great but I suppose that it is not quite that kind of hotel. The city anyway is a walking city with plenty of opportunity to walk about.

This is a lovely hotel. The rooms are large, the ceilings are high. I especially enjoyed the breakfast - the area for breakfast is very large and you always have privacy. Nice room service too. Location - very convenient - walking distance from the centre. Wifi is not good like in most hotels to be perfectly honest. Even the luxury... More

We spent 3 nights here prior to boarding our ship for a cruise of the Med. We loved this hotel. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted warmly and quickly shown to our room. I wasn't sure if I liked the room or not (we booked a privilege suite) since it didn't have a view of the city. The... More

I took my husband to celebrate his 50th birthday.I can honestly say it's one of the best hotels we visited. The attention to detail is like nowhere we've been. We got upgraded to a suite when they knew why we were there. Special thanks to Julie guest relations manager and Christina at the restaurant for their outstanding hospitality. We will... 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.
