I am very glad to have a good review of the El Palacio Hotel, in Barcelona ,668 Gran Via de Las Corts Catalones, (i put in address because there are a few hotels with same name).
I had actually put off a trip to Barcelona because I had such a hard time finding a Hotel that was affordable and had a little class in a good location. I read trip adviser every time before I book a hotel and the reviews seemed pretty good for this hotel.
I found my experience with this hotel to be a very good one. I got a room that was spacious and
affordable compared to the going rate of hotels in europe.
The hotel has a gorgeous lobby, very nice breakfast area, and old style regal rooms. I saw so many hotels that were just too ultra modern when I was searching for place in Barcelona.
The hotel is very centrally located. Just a few minutes to walk to Las Romblas, you can also walk to La Sagrada Familia.
I found the Employees to be efficient, and service good. I don't know why but it seems i always make friends with a nice bellman. Gleb (sp)was very helpful.
I wish so many hotels did not charge for wifi, but I was able to connect to Internet in the room.
I found Barcelona to be a beautiful city with great architecture and friendly people. Didn't have any threat of thieves at all. ANd I could not believe all teh great deals being offered in stores.
There were 75% off sales everywhere.
One thing, the beds are very hard..i was ok with that but if you don't like hard beds you might consider that.
So i say Yes to El Palacio, I stayed before a cruise and after and it worked out to be a very good experience.
