“Highlight of a birthday weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

My friends and I have been travelling through Europe at the same time but only meeting up for a couple of occasions in a 10-week period. It was my birthday this previous weekend and decided to meet in Barcelona and splurge. One of the things we found difficult to find was a hotel in Barcelona that had two separate bedrooms as opposed to one bedroom and fold-out bed.

The hotel itself is stunning. Everything is lush. They have the most amazing lighting in the rooms, included walls and furniture that have backlighting I them that just add the most incredible touch. The bathrooms are incredible with Roca fixtures including a colour therapy shower and a Japanese electric toilet which ensures that EVERYTHING is clean after you finish.

Before we arrived, they asked if there was anything we wanted in the room. I have a mild addiction to Perrier, so was absolutely stoked when they were able to fulfil my request for about 2 litres of Perrier in the fridge. All of the staff were amazing. They provided a lot of information about the area. We had requested information about boat trips around Barcelona (which we didn't end up using) but they were all thoroughly researched with a variety of different options.

And, to top it off, they had a birthday card waiting for me with balloons! When I return to Barcelona, I will definitely staying there again.

We (family of four) just finished a two week trip to Spain and Morocco with a one night layover in Barcelona at the El Palauet. I don't often experience "hotel envy" (as in, I wish I could stay in this room longer), but we certainly did at the El Palauet. Housed in a fabulous turn of the century building on the Passeig de Gracia (the Madison Avenue of Barcelona), the common areas are stunning. The rooms are even more fantastic--soaring, gorgeously restored ceilings; chic furnishings; state of the art systems. We loved every bit of it--the butler service, the attentiveness of all of the staff (one of whom came to our room at 6:00 a.m. on the day of our departure to prepare breakfast!). Thank you El Palauet (Lorna and Alex!). We can't wait to return, for a longer stay!

This was a really nice find- thank you trip advisor! Well, where shall I start? The apartments are kept clean, the interior is very much French- Dramatic style and the location is quite good- about 20 minutes walk to the center. Me & my boyfriend had a very pleasant weekend living in a very chic place. Thank you!

We loved everything about El Palauet Living. The interior design was gorgeous - high ceilings, large windows and lots of original modernist features - and our suite was huge. We practically needed walkie-talkies to keep in touch with each other as we enjoyed the place. The rooftop area was also lovely with its garden, sauna and jacuzzi - a perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day. But the real highlight for me was just the chance to stay in such a beautiful historic modernist residence in the home of modernism, Barcelona. El Palauet Living more than deserves its place on neilsonparc's hotel lust list.

El Palauet is high quality accommodation in a very good location. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It is in the main shopping area and about a 30 min walk from the Gothic Quarter. The apartments are very high spec and there is a range of food and drink, including good wine, to buy in the kitchen. My one criticism is that design has trumped practicality particularly in the bathrooms where the modern sink fittings shoot water onto you and the bath takes a good 30 minutes to fill. Also the toilet has a glass, sliding door within the door-less en-suite bathroom which won't suit everyone.

I have just got back from Barcelona where I had an utter blast at Residence El Palauet who organised my 50th birthday party there. We took over the whole place for the weekend and they could not have been more helpful. The decor (with many additional touches brought in specially for the event, like carvel flowers, enormous balloons, a jazz band, Spanish guitarist, etc. etc.) is stunning and it is a truly magic place. The staff are exceptional.
For sure, all of this comes at a (hefty) price but, if ever you can, do try it out. The "rooms" (really they are 2-bedroom apartments) are huge and extremely comfortable. It's real 100% luxury staying there.
It was all top class.
