This hotel is very expensive for what you receive. The service in the restaurant and rooftop bar was awful. Couldn't get waited on. The gym equipment is very outdated. The elliptical machine was broken.The rooms are lovely and refurbished. a couple of blocks away from las rambles so it was refreshing to get away from all the hustle and bustle....

Beautiful bedroom, sitting room and bathroom. Very helpful concierge willing to give directions, get tickets and answer any questions we might have in our 6 night stay. The Winter Garden restaurant was excellent, don't miss the gnocchi.

The room was very nice and comfortable, ample space for 3. Bedding is very comfortable. Breakfast is great, lots to choose from. The Concierge desk was really helpful in advising...

Everything about the El Palace Hotel speaks to the historical elegance and sophistication of a century ago as visited by royalty 'back in the day'. The hotel stands out on the Gran Via with its red geranium planter boxes in each window; upon entry you are met by attentive and welcoming staff, fresh flowers, and the tradition of the hotel...

El Palace hotel was originally a Ritz Hotel - many locals still refer to it as " Ritz Palace Hotel" rather than El Palace. An amazing building about 100 years old but very well maintained with no problems in infrastructure and perfectly decorated interiors - rooms giving the impression that it was renovated only a few months ago. The Hotel...

I made my reservation and requested a king size bed specifically over email more than a month before my arrival yet the staff still tried to convince me that I had to take two twin size beds and the house keeping would put a blanket over to make them a king size bed for me. After I told her that...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable 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 recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

“Room was nice. Hotel was a bit stuffy. The staff was hard to communicate with as not to many people speak english. The restaurant was very over priced with a limited menu. Decided to give it a try one evening. Sat down and waited for service for almost 20 minutes. Decided to leave. ”
