We're chosen Barcelona as our last destination between France and Spain, yes the hotel is little bit pricy, but guess what you get what you pay for, from the moment you enter the premises you know you are in for a treat, the hotel is like no other, majestic, old and modern all in one palace. If visiting Barcelona do... More

Probably one of the best 5* hotels I have ever stayed in. It is both Elegant and sophisticated, but also welcoming. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough to make you feel comfortable. I especially want to compliment the concierge team as they are pretty outstanding. You will never open a door or carry bags or luggage because... More

We booked in here at the end of our trip to Spain as a wind down and chill out place from the hustle and bustle of Spain in the height of the tourist season. From the moment we pulled up to the door in the car, we were greeted with consummate professionalism, from the Concierge to the cleaners. The service... More

The room was luxurious! We can thoroughly recommend eating in the rooftop gastronomic restaurant, we had the taster board which they quickly adapted to... More

I happened across this hotel by chance two years ago when I was previously in Barcelona. I had lunch with a friend in their wonderful restaurant at the back of the hotel. As we left I saw the plaque on the outside that said it was previously the Ritz. So I had to bring my wife here to start of... More

We stayed 2 nights at El Palace Hotel in Barcelona and it was just amazing. The setup of the styles in the lounges there were just faboulous so it sometimes just felt like a dream there set at maybe 200 years ago in old times. The food was excellent and also there the service and staff are very friendly. Location... More

A well located hotel with a beautiful lobby that is welcoming and full of art. Modern amenities with old world grandure. Ask for a room with the Roman bath which they retained from it's former life as the Ritz but added modern marble and fixtures. The staff was friendly and helpful too. We would definatly stay there again!

Formerly The Ritz, this restored hotel is stunning. The location is excellent. Note the internet speeds were awful and unacceptable for a luxury hotel. The staff and accommodations are first rate. Highly recommend if you want to stay in the older downtown section. Also very quiet.

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.
