My daughter and I just stayed at the Palace for 3 nights. It was absolutely lovely and I cannot say enough about the excellent level of service we received at the hotel. All of the staff - especially the concierges went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. The room was spotless with a very comfortable bed, great bath products, fantastic shower, etc. Even though I typically prefer more modern decor, it was fun to be in an 'old world' setting. The location is great - just a few blocks from Plaza Catalunya and the Passeig de Gracia. It was nice to be a bit out of the fray but still very close. I would stay at the Palace again and highly recommend this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: The hotel upgraded us to a junior suite - lovely, large, very quiet.

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous stay at El Palace. What a wonderful luxury hotel in the heart of Barcelona! I loved the hotel's location, which is accessible to all the major areas, eg, The Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas, Passeig de Gracia shopping, Gaudi's La Casa Mila,etc. Our room was elegant, yet comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and had every amenity including heated towels, a fabulous rain shower, sunken bathtub and bath products from L'Occitane. Also, I am a very sensitive sleeper and was pleased that I enjoyed 10 peaceful nights at the hotel. In addition, the staff at El Palace is incredible. From Mariano in reception, to Eloi, our bellman and all of the concierge staff - Xavier, Francisco, Alexis, Alex, Michael, we were treated like royalty! Their insight, knowledge, professionalism and advice really made our trip so memorable.

The El Palace is situated on a very busy main through route - the Gran Via de Corts Catalans.
We were concerned that it may be noisy from the road as our room overlooked it but the sound proofing was adequate.
The location is good for access to the City and is 15 mins away from Sagrada Familia in the other direction.
The service in the hotel is excellent but beware of the prices in the bars, mini bars and spa.
We included breakfast in our price but at €28 each if we hadn't it would have been more than we would have wanted to pay. However if cava and smoked salmon are what you want for breakfast then that price may be about right. We dined out every evening so are unable to comment on the quality of the food. There were not may eating in the restaurant so we wanted places where there was more atmosphere. In the busier summer months it may of course be rather different.
We had a great week in Barcelona and we enjoyed our experience and stay at El Palace.

My husband and I just spent 5 fabulous nights at El Palace. We were greeted with a wonderful aroma in the lobby to wonderful service. Our room and bathroom were very spacious. The location in Barcelona was absolutely perfect. The concierge Alex, Katherina and Celine with guest relations were so helpful with travel tips and restaurant recommendations. We would recommend this hotel for your stay in Barcelona. We can't wait to come back. Thank you everyone at El Palace Hotel.
