The hotel is beautiful and the interior is gorgeous. The service was a bit tricky since the staff for room service didn't speak any English but they were very friendly. The breakfast room is great with a sun roof and very delicious. Also the location was smack in the middle of great locations (walking distance to the big shops) I would definitely recommend it!

Fantastic hotel within walking distance to most major attractions within the city of Barcelona. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are spacious, quiet and filled with amenities. The staff is extraordinary and within a very short time learned our names and seemed to anticipate our needs. Didn't get to try the spa or rooftop pool as we were so busy with exploring the city. Will definitely be back to Barcelona and will absolutely stay at El Palace

When you walk into the Palace Hotel, your first thought might be "This looks like the Ritz." Perhaps that's because it was built by Caesar Ritz in 1919 and operated under his name until 1992. Never mind the change of name and owner, because the spirit of Caesar Ritz lives on. Everything about this hotel is first class: the rooms and suites, the service (the doorman remembers your name), the food. The prices are high but worth every penny. If you long for old-world elegance, the Palace truly... Read more

It's not often that I write about hotels, especially ones in cities. They are pretty much the same with some of the big names in the big cities, to me at least, completely overrated. BUT, then there is El Palace in Barcelona. This city center hotel (formerly a Ritz and now better off not being part of that group) is a truly special experience. What makes it special? Clearly it's the staff. The entry and lobby are grand in a 1920's way. The main "living room" behind the lobby is somewhat dated,... Read more

Stayed here for 4 nights, one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The concierge and doormen were exceptionally knowledgable and helpful and made our holiday stress-free. We had adjoining rooms as my 15 year old son was with us, couldn't fault them. Only downside was breakfast, it wasn't to as high a standard as the rest of the hotel. Overall it was an amazing experience staying here and I can't wait to go back!

The positives - beautiful hotel in good location. Staff are very nice. If you get a good rate this hotel is good but I wouldn't say it's a true top of the line experience.

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 for a day of sight seeing before getting into our rooms. The entrance area was stunningly decorated with fresh flowers and lovely ornate finishes. ... Read more

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!

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 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 the perfect home base for frequent jaunts to the Born, Barceloneta, the Gothic Quarter and the beach. Even the walk from Park Guell was amazing. The staff was very friendly a...
