The building , the rooms , the staff ... they were all amazing! Best choise ever! Situated in the heart of the city, a quiet part of Paseig de Gracia in comparison to the lower part. The staff was amazing, very helpfull and always trying to meet your desires. The atmosphere from El Palauet surrounds your heart and transcends to a different time and place. It’s like you are reliving the early 20th century with all the novelty and technology from nowadays. We were truely mesmerised with the place! We will definetly return! Try it! At least once! You won’t regret it! It’s a place you’ll remember for the rest of your life! Congratulations to all the team from El Palauet and many thanks for making our short stay so amazing!
It is really an upmarket serviced apartment, more than a hotel - but the rooms are so large and beautifully designed, so Catalonian and comfortable, we wished we spent more time here to be honest. 24/7 concierge, they cooked us breakfast and bought us food on arrival after a long haul flight, staff were great. A great place to stay that really feels like you're in Barcelona, instead of some chain hotel where you could be anywhere. Had 2 kids with us and they loved it too. Easy walk to so many of Barcelonas major attractions. I'd stay again.
We just spent 5 nights right on Passeig de Gràcia, in one of the most beautiful buildings dating back to 1902. The mix is heritage and modern with all the technology at your fingertips. Our 150m2 suite was beautifully decorated with painted relief ceilings, stained glass windows, mirrored kitchens, crisp and comfortable beds, rain showers and tub and... balconies over looking the street. We couldn’t have asked for more. The service was great, from the team (and our Ed Sheehan lookalike😁) always eager to assist. Best location, super easy to get anywhere from here, what a proper spot. Barcelona you are amazing, and El Palauet...we will be back.
1. No hot water in shower 2. Phone broken 3. No one at front desk most of the time 4. Laundry returned damp Completely disorganized place - ever see Fawlty Towers? This is it. Think of it as a poorly run bed and breakfast. dd in terms of experience or recommendations and seem generally indifferent. Thanks
We stayed in the Principal Passeig de Gracia 24-271017. We would concur with the majority of the comments below. The hotel apartment concept is excellent and rare (depending on your view of Airbnb) and El Palauet does it well in Barcelona. Location, quality and size are commensurate with the cost. There are issues with the privacy of the en-suites (gaps, glass, mirrors and limited doors) and confusion over what is and what is not included in breakfast when breakfast is part of the deal, but these are subjective and solvable respectively. Sadly, our 3 night stay was marred by the major renovation works next door. The masonry drilling and jack hammers start at 0800 and continue to reverberate periodically until 1630; interspersed with deliveries of skips, building supplies and so on. Sleep is impossible beyond 0800. I would guess that this work will be going on for months if not a year given the size and scope. El Palauet just seem resigned to the disruption but I'm not sure guests paying their rates would take the same view.…
My husband and I stayed in Principal Passeig de Gracia apartment from July 16 - 20, 2017. I cannot say enough about how wonderful the staff and apartment were. They took care of every need we had -- even hand-delivering two of the jute tote bags to us at our next hotel in Barcelona! Julia, Maria, and Christian ALL were absolutely superb, providing champagne, dinner upon request, making museum reservations, booking a full-day tour with driver, buying us flowers for our anniversary, making restaurant reservations, etc. Plus the apartment! By far the most gorgeous in which we've ever stayed anywhere! We are already fantasizing about taking another trip to Barcelona and bringing friends with us to El Palauet. We cannot recommend it more highly!
Stunning building with original features, but I would say it operates more as a bed and breakfast rather than hotel. There is no dining space or bar space and breakfast is ordered the night before and prepared for you in your room-which can create some timing issues-you don't get breakfast in one go,rather dribs and drabs. Open plan en-suite with Toto toilet. And yes, the sink tap does soak you and the floor when you open it
El Palauet is just an incredibly special place. The boutique hotel is situated in the heart of the chic Gracia neighborhood in the heart of Barcelona, just a short walk from countless main attractions, including a less than a 5 minute walk to two of Gaudi's famous masterpiece buildings on the Passeig de Gracia, where the hotel sits. The design of the entire building and each suite is immaculate - classical architecture meets modern amenities, to make for the most memorable stay. Not only are there outdoor spaces inside each 1,600 sq foot suite (literally, there is no bad room in the hotel!), but the hotel also has an amazing rooftop terrace - perfect for morning breakfast and an evening cocktail. The staff is incredible and discrete - it's a perfect fusion of all the services you need without any unnecessary disturbances. This charming landmark hotel quickly became my favorite hotel of all time and I couldn't recommend it more highly!…
Stop looking you can't find better in Barcelona! It has the convenience and space of an apartment with the service of a hotel but much more personal. We stayed for a week with our teenage children in one apartment and our extended family in another apartment of the first floor. Principal Gracia and Principal Tibidabo. The rooms were beautiful original details on the walls and ornate ceilings with designer furniture and mod cons of aircon and blinds controlled by the iPad. It is in a great location central but slightly out of the busy tourist area with good restaurants nearby. It was completely quiet at night with the double glazing and shutters give complete block out the light. The staff make it really special. They are such nice people and incredibly helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. It really is a personal valet service. They made all our restaurant bookings and all their recommendations were excellent. They did a shop before we arrived from our list and even offered to make me soup when I was sick. They were wonderful. A fabulous stay. I couldn't recommend it more highly. …
We stayed at El Palauet for four nights and had a great experience. We are a family of four and the two bedroom suite was perfect. When searching for hotels in Barcelona (and Europe in general) it was very hard to find a hotel that would put a family of four in one suite. I was very happy to find El Palauet! We stayed in the Principal Tibidabo suite and it was more than enough space for four people. The living area is spacious and comfortable with a wall of beautiful stained glass windows. The dining area was also spacious and we enjoyed many meals there. We had the hotel breakfast and we also ordered room service for dinner once (the hotel doesn't have a kitchen so room service is from nearby restaurants). The service is fantastic, our concierge helped set up the food onto plates and set up the table for us. Having a kitchen is extremely helpful when traveling with kids and this kitchen was well equipped with a small range, microwave, full size refrigerator and dish washer. I think there was an oven too. Pots, pans, plates, cups were plentiful. Of course, there is also a espresso machine. There was a complimentary bottle of red as well. The details in all the rooms are beautiful. The bathtub is probably the biggest bathtub I've ever been in. My kids loved it! The beds are quite comfortable and the room faces the back so was not too noisy. One thing to note is that both bathrooms are ensuite and there is no wall separating the bedrooms from bathrooms. It was OK for us since we are a family, but might be awkward for friends traveling together. There were a couple of kinks during our stay (mainly AC related), but once we brought them to the hotel staff's attention, they were quick to address/fix the issues. The location is very convenient, close to many shops, restaurants and the Gaudi buildings. The rooftop is gorgeous as well. It was too hot for the hot tub or steam room but we enjoyed the view. My son loved the fact that it was close to many Pokestops :) Beautiful hotel in a beautiful city, would definitely stay here again.…
