This was such a nice hotel experience from the moment we checked in until we left. The staff always wanted to help and were extremely friendly. The room itself was lovely and super comfortable. We flew straight from the US and so the blackout shades came in really handy the first two days until jet lag eased. El Palace was... More

Beautiful, large and elegant room and top modern, large and stylish bathroom. Outstanding 360 degree view from the top terrace over the city including Sagrada Familia. Just on the floor below is the roof top pool which is heaven to cool down in after a day of excursions. Excellent service and friendly staff. We will be back!

This hotel brings back old world charm combined with all the modern conveniences you might wish for. The staff is exceptional, the grounds simply beautiful and the location assures a quiet retreat from the bustle of Lisbon. We stayed for 4 days and couldn't have been happier with everything. I highly recommend this hotel!

The new restaurant is on the 7th floor which was not here so many years ago. We ate at this restaurant by the pool last night. The food was very good,... More

My husband and I had the wonderful experience of visiting Barcelona with several other couples. Our stay at El Palace was completely perfect from start to finish. We arrived early in the day and were greeted warmly by several Hotel staff members. They welcomed us warmly and assisted us with our checkin and luggage storage needs before we ventured off... More

My husband and I spent a lovely three nights at El Palace Hotel. We especially loved the authentic classic atmosphere. Unlike other "chain" hotels that have hotels all over Europe, El Palace Hotel was unique. The service was outstanding and our room was beautiful. We had a splendid view of the city. If and when we return to Barcelona, we... More

We taxied in from Sants railway station after a train ride from Madrid. Our check-in was seamless. We asked for a higher room and had decided to take an inside room for quietness. It was a sentimental journey for us as we had stayed here over 20 years ago on our first trip to Barcelona. The room was spacious with... More

This hotel was perfect from start to finish, a true 5 star hotel. On arrival the check-in staff upgraded us to a suite as we were staying for our 10th wedding anniversary. The room was absolutely stunning with an original roman bath and super king size bed. The hotel left a bottle of cava in our room as well.. This... More

If a grand duke were seeking the ultimate grand hotel, this might be it. Starting life as the Ritz Hotel in 1919, it has now been thoroughly modernized. It still has drapes as heavy as raccoon coats, and the doormen are still dressed like field marshals. But the guests might be wearing polo shirts and sneakers. The location is ideal:... More

The hotel has a beautiful charm with its old world decor. Location is great and convenient. But it's the staff that stand out. Every member we interacted with was professional and very friendly. Nothing was a hassle and they were always keen to help.

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.
