“Palace Gl Hotel Barcelona Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We having been traveling all over the world for 40 years and are really very fussy.We pay for luxury and expect it.
We loved the Palace hotel in Barcelona. The Lobby is gorgeous,it has a 1 star Michelin Star restaurant in the hotel as well as a lovely breakfast room and another restaurant.
We all had mini suites that were beautiful,comfortable ,and had the most wonderful bath products. The bathrooms were beautiful marble rooms.
The location was great.Would highly recommend,but do not eat in the regular restaurant.Service was very slow,took 2 hours to get main course..we sent it back and didn't have dinner.
No other complaints and would definitely stay there again,but not have dinner.

Room Tip: We had suites and they were lovely.dont know about regular rooms Rooms were a bit dark

The hotel is 2 blocks to main street P.Gracia and the best attractions Casa Batllo, la Pedrera, etc. The rooms are small and the hotel looks like a museum,the service is good and the staff is attentive.

El palace location is central and great to explore central barcelona. We choose this hotel because it is one of the leading hotels of the world and we were not disappointed. Service was great and rooms were great. We were upgraded to a suite and the room was spacious and were were treated with chocolates and sparkling wine. The spa was expensive but the treatment were great.

Room Tip: In the city so view was not impotant to us.

My husband and I were spending a few days in Barcelona before cruising the Mediterranean. It was really hard to find a hotel that would meet our needs. We chose El Palace and were more than satisfied. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. The staff was more than helpful and went out of the way to make our stay very enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again and hope to be back in Barcelona next summer. We look forward to our stay at El Palace. Absolutely a highlight of our trip. Well worth the stay.

Room Tip: The Roman Bath was so incredible. Spa looked so nice. Wish I had more time to enjoy it.

My wife and I recently stayed at the El Palace Hotel for three nights and couldn't be happier with our decisions to stay there. We normally don’t stay at ‘5 Star’ hotels, but given this was the final stay of our three week European vacation, we decided to go for it and very glad we did.

As mentioned in many of the reviews, the property and rooms are well maintained and reasonably priced for the location and the amenities. We were upgraded to a suite upon our arrival without asking. The staff, particularly David and Tony, were very helpful, accommodating, and friendly.

In a nice and safe area, we spent the day walking to all the ‘tourist’ sites and enjoyed coming back to a clean and comfortable room at the end of the day.

For our last night in Barcelona, we had dinner at the hotel’s 19/NINETEEN Restaurant and then drinks and live music at the Bar Rien de Rien, both of which I highly recommend. The staff for both the restaurant and the bar were professional yet friendly and helped to make this experience one we won’t soon forget.

I would definitely recommend the El Palace Hotel for anyone looking for a more upscale stay in beautiful Barcelona, and hope to return some day.

We found the location of the Palace to be wonderful. It is a quick walk to the gothic quarter as well as the restaurants and shops. The Breakfast buffet was very good and the staff friendly and helpful. Only complaints were the beds were very hard and not too comfortable. Even though we faced the main street our room was very quiet. In any case, next time I am in Barcelona I will stay there again!

Although we only stayed at this Hotel on night it couldn't have been nicer. We arrived in the morning and our room wasn't quite ready. We had a lovely breakfast in the beautiful garden room which we really enjoyed. The Hotel is stately and of an older style. What I really liked was the large yet intimate lobby and the concierge desk where they couldn't wait to help us. The location is also great - you feel like you're slightly off the track (10 min from La Romba), but you aren't. You're right in the middle of everything, but it's quiet and you can walk everywhere. Our room was ready soon after we ate breakfast, so we were able to check in and take a long walk around the City. Because of this our one night in Barcelona actually felt like two full days. Thanks for a great stay.
