I stayed at this hotel for five days while I was vacationing in Barcelona. The hotel is amazing, as the other reviews will tell you, and it is well located in Barcelona, making it easy to get to where you want to be during the day. Everything about the room was a five star experience. Friendly staff, great times. If... More

The Palace, previously Ritz, offers the best of old and new. Stylish from all points of view, it underwent recently important refurbishments adding a rooftop pool and garden, luxurous new bathrooms and new rooms, all in classic style. Very well situated with an outstanding service it has everything to make your business or leisure stay a real pleasure.

This is a truly luxurious, old world hotel. Our room was very comfortable and well-appointed; the bathroom very large and modern with tub and shower. Furnished traditionally, it was a pleasure to spend two nights in this hotel.

This exquisite traditional , but totally upgraded hotel is s delight to the eye, has generously sized rooms, with every amenity and the most fabulous buffet breakfast I've seen in Europe. Extremely well located to shops and restaurants it was a find. Rates are not outrageous for what you get and the Jr. Suite is wonderful for two.

This hotel is out of this world! The entire hotel is beautiful….the reception, the lobby, the media room, the breakfast room, bar, terrace, etc! The rooms were very large and elegantly adorned! The marble bathroom had double sinks, a tub and separate shower, and a separate water closet. The entire staff was excellent! Treat yourself to this exquisite hotel!

We had an amazing time at this hotel. Staff and service were excellent. I loved the location of this hotel. Its a 10 - 15 min walk to Gaudi and Passeig de Gracia, where you have the world famous retail brands. This area is pricey compared to other neighborhoods in Barcelona.

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.
