El Palace Hotel was totally refurbished and reopened late 2009. The works preserved the classic spirit that has always characterised this property, distinguished as a symbol of Barcelona’s hotel tradition. Set in the heart of the city centre, close to Las Ramblas and in the most prestigious shopping area, it is surrounded by boulevards, theatres and main banks. It has an excellent transport connections and it is just 20 min from el Prat Airport.After the restoration, the Hotel has 120 rooms, 42 of which are suites and junior suites, all equipped with last-generation technology. A new room design, a soft interior re-decoration of public areas and lounges and the realignment and optimisation of the architectural infrastructure enhances the beauty and majesty of our Hotel like in the 20’s.

What a delightful idea for this hotel to have created this open air cinema. Amazing views, very comfortable long chairs, excellent cocktails, blankets and umbrelas provided (if needed). We had dinner earlier the jamon was amazing, the tomato salad lacked a bit of salt but it was saved by an excellent organic local red wine. Local mineral water was also available (unfortunately not sparkling). Overall a wonderful Sunday night, as good as they can get.

Hotel's Favorite
This 101-year-old hotel is outstanding in every way! It is in an excellent location in this walkable city, close to shopping, good restaurants, tourist attractions, and even the harbor. The service was outstanding by the receptionists, bellmen, and waiters. The restaurants we tried at the hotel were both wonderful, and we enjoyed checking out the Bluesman Bar too. They had live music starting at 11:00 p.m., and that was too late for us. The breakfast buffet was excellent, and in an elegant room. The hotel has been renovated, and is the utmost in elegance. Our junior suite was spacious, comfortable, quiet, had a lovely balcony in the front of the hotel with an amazing view. We loved it! Unfortunately, our visit was marred by Spain enacting a lockdown due to the coronavirus. Starting on Saturday, all restaurants and tourist attractions were closed. Still, our hotel took good care of us and stayed calm. It was the only place we were able to eat on our last day, so we appreciated them staying open for us. Thank you for making our first visit to Barcelona so memorable!

An outstanding experience despite being sick (obviously, no fault of the hotel). The breakfasts were delicious, you’re literally transported back to the 1920’s! Excellent location in quiet section of Barcelona, yet you’re so close to the hustle and bustle of downtown and all of the cool and hip shops and sightseeing. What a gorgeous and extremely comfortable hotel. Absolutely, well worth the extra money. We'll be back when in Barcelona!

Being the fact the Freddie & Montsy first met at this hotel where Freddie stayed, I was in awe. The service were kind and understanding about the reasons I and many others as tourists show up to the hotel, who are not staying there. Wonderful experience.

Well kept 100 years old hotel, located on the Grand Via and 10 mins walk to Paseig de Gracia. Superb room with fireplace and modern batrhroom. High standard in room amenities. The television in the room is cleverly placed behind a huge mirror hung on the wall and the minibar is hidden behind a painting. The decor in the room and within the hotel depicts of palaces in Europe. Breakfast was good with good spread. Service here was also impacable. There is a rooftop restaurant nicely set up and you should try it out when you are there. If you plan to shop in Barcelona, this hotel would be a great choice.
