Our room was upgraded to a beautiful Junior Suite and we would like to thank Janna, Katharina and Carla and the General Manager for our gifts. We would like...

The El Palace provided a wonderful honeymoon for me and my wife. The service is impeccable, the rooms are spacious and very clean, the hotel is walking distance from almost all the great restaurants and sight-seeing areas. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel in Barcelona. Pros: Central location--walking distance to lots of eating locations, tourist sites including the...

The hotel is head and shoulders above anything else - I actually went by or had dinner at the other five stars that I was considering before spending time in Barcelona - and they weren't even close - The rooms are elegant, the breakfast room is a gorgeous veranda, and the staff, from the maid to the concierge - were...

This is a marvelous hotel in a very central location in Barcelona. The easy to use metro system is only two blocks away. Our room was spacious, spotless and perhaps most important, very quiet. And the staff was fantastic from our early morning arrival from the airport to the moment we left. Everyone seemed to go out of their way...

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.
