“Great Charm, Comfort, and Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We stayed here for three nights in late October prior to a transatlantic cruise. The location is central, great for walking. The area is sophisticated, quite urban and elegant. The hotel itself is quite beautiful. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The room was ultra-comfortable. We did not eat at the hotel because we heard that the breakfast prices are high. There are ample fun indoor and outdoor cafes minutes from the hotel so breakfast was no problem.

The price was fantastic for the value received. Can't say enough good things about the Avenida Palace!

We stayed in The Avenida Palace over the summer and I must say that it was one of the most comfortable hotels I have ever stayed in. I had never been to Spain before, let alone Barcelona and this hotel out-performed every other hotel in every sense. Firstly, the location is amazing; pardon the over use of personification but it sits on the borders of Place de Catalunya and seems to smile warmly on the vibrant shopping distric known as Passeig de Gracia. It is also served very well by a hotel shuttle bus which stops at Catalunya and is then only a five minute walk to the hotel. If you are coming for a holiday (as we were) then you will appriciate the hotel's location in relation to the sites of Barcelona. It is about a five minute walk to Las Ramblas and is blessed with an underground/metro station right outside the doors. This leads to some amazing treats such as Las Ramblas, The Olympic Park, Barcelonetta Beach, The romantic Gothic Quarter (with the famous Carrer del Bisbe), Mount Tipidado and Sagrada Familia (boring). The hotel's facilities are excellent too. The room was massively massive and very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and spacious too with lots of toiletries and clean towels "on tap"... The breakfast was full and flavoursome with lots of choice. There was eggs, bacon, tomato ketchup and toast. There was also foreign food on offer too.
To conclusively sum up this hotel and location was simple and comfortable with lots of great things to see and drink. Do yourself a favour and book this hotel - It's a must!

We were delighted that we were able to check in at 8:30 a.m. after a long flight from the states. Room was clean, Great location. Had trouble logging into the Wi-fi. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the Hotel Avenida Palace in 2010. Rooms a little out dated and the bed a little worn, but still comfortable. Did not eat at the hotel. Very friendly, very conveniently located. Walked almost everywhere, except for Park Güell, which we took the sightseeing bus around and disembarked, and then rode rest of the way around, past olympic statium and FCB complex. Even walked home from the bull fight after taking the subway over.

Fairly good value hotel for a business trip and adequate for that purpose.
Location is the best feature of the hotel.
Rooms are slightly dated.
Air con in my room was switched off and outside my window vents to the kithchen, so the smell of cooking oil was ever present.
Cleaners in the morning ensure that you have no chance late sleep in, very noisy, shouting down the corridors.
In short if you are stuck for a hotel it's fine, but look elsewhere if you have the choice.

Arriving early at Avenida Palace after a long haul from Melbourne AU, we were delighted to be met with obliging staff who completed our check-in quickly, and directed us to our room where a nice shower revived the senses!
The location is fantastic and close to the nice section of "The Ramblas" as well as many other walkable places of interest.
I would certainly recommend this hotel.
