Petit Palace Barcelona
Ranked #261 of 518 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed October 2, 2013

If you're not the very touristy type traveler this hotel is PERFECT!

It's located just a few short blocks away from Ramblas, which is akin to 42nd Street in NYC. Yes you should see it, but not eat there or stay there as everything is jacked up in price and lowered in quality. :/ Also, very near the metro and all the Gaudi sights!

The Petit Prince room we had was high up and had a darling little balcony with two french doors so we could go out and check the weather each morning and soak up the fantastic view. The hotel is modern, chic and clean. I'd say minimalist though. Beware of the unusually dark hallways. I suppose this was to set an ambiance but really just made it hard to use the hotel card key at 3am. Petit Prince- invest in some lights.

The rooms are fairly sized (for European rooms) and had large chest closets so we could actually unpack, which I appreciate on a two week vacation. There is a breakfast downstairs but overpriced in my opinion with so many amazing little cafe just around the corner. Flauta and cafe solo shouldn't be consumed in a basement restaurant.

I did appreciate the wi-fi in each room but more than once had ot go downstairs to get the new password which was minimally inconvenient. Would've liked to have had a drink at the lobby bar before heading out as it looked very inviting, but there was never a bartender to be seen :(

Overall, the hotel was really great though. Fantastic location. We'll be back for sure!

Lack of staff, not friendly nor profesional, dirty rooms (carpet and other room furniture should have been changed several years ago, they are dirty and old), rests of previous guests in the room (stains in curtains, hair in the bathroom). It must have been a 4 stars when it started but now it is completely abandoned, I would not give it even 3. The only positive thing I can say is that the location is really good.

I have to say that the average hotel quality in Barcelona is very very low and finding a good value for money place can be a challenge.
Petit palace is no exception to this.
Positive things are its superb location, very central and at walking distance to a lot of main attractions.In the room you can find the necessaire for your staying (like toothbrush, slippers, sawing kit), which is something that I definitely appreciate.
But that´s it, because rooms themselves are kind of shabby and bad smelling, and breakfast is poor.
I would not recommend it.

Lets start with the good. The hotel has a great central location and offers family rooms making travel with a family much easier and provided a reasonable breakfast in the room rate. The reception staff were also friendly and helpful.

The bad

Our room was fitted with disabled access in the bathroom which is good, except that shower unit was then positioned above it meaning you would need to be about 7 foot tall to use it properly. For example the shelf for soap was about 6 foot off the ground and built in shower jets started around shoulder height. It was just a bit ill thought out and irritating.

The Ugly

This hotel seriously needs a refit. The carpets were stained, decor out of date and walls looked damp in places.

In summary if you just want a central location at a reasonable price and don't mind staying in a hotel that is not up to 4 star standards and is a bit shabby this is fine, but don't expect luxury...

Room Tip: room 305 looks like it has seen better days and has a shower suitable for giants.

The hotel is near to the most attraction places in Barcelona, nice cafes for breakfast too, the room is very well decorated with very nice furniture, we took a quadruple room and it was comfortable with good space, bathroom is very clean.

Stayed at this hotel in May this year. 10 minute walk to La Rambla with shops, restaurants, bars and cafes en route. Enjoyed Barcelona very much and did all the typical touristy things, the open top bus, visit to Camp Nou (one ambition fulfilled!) etc. The hotel was clean, the room was large, clean and modern and the reception staff friendly and helpful. Would visit again.
