Within easy walking to Barcelona centre. Nothing was too much effort for the staff and they made the stay very enjoyable. Luxurious surroundings and the 360 degree city views from the roof top bar are lovely.

This hotel deserves every bit of praise given here on TripAdvisor. The lobby is one of the most elegant, and at the same time, inviting, places to relax (and journal as I did). The staff are fabulous: they speak good English, and are extremely attentive to the guests. Management is very meticulous, as I experienced late one morning returning to...

The most amazing hotel we have ever visited. The service is second to none, the rooms clean, comfortable and luxurious. This hotel is a real hidden gen waiting to be discovered. It reminds people of the movie 'Hotel Budapest' and has all the comfort, service and decor of that era. If you ever wanted to stay somewhere where. You are...

Excellent and very accommodating staff who remember your name. Beautiful accommodations, easy walk to most sites in Barcelona . Holiday events/ dinners beautifully executed. Several languages spoken. Garden Room breakfast presents a variety of dishes. Eating there for 12 mornings I was able to sample most everything offered. Noticed they accept group tours seamlessly. Would stay there again.

We booked for a birthday treat and we were greeted with complimentary Cava and chocolates, a lovely thought. Everything in the hotel was thoughtful and luxurious. The staff are excellent and super friendly. The downstairs bar does a wonderful G&T and has excellent service. We ordered the enormous breakfast in bed and was not disappointed...it could feed a small family!...

Based on all of the reviews, I was expecting a great experience but my expectations were exceeded. Immediately upon check-in the staff demonstrated the level of service that we could expect when I was shown to the room while my husband went to the ATM. As soon as he returned every staff member in sight greeted him by name and...

I booked El Palace for a long weekend in October hoping for something relaxing and a bit special for my wife's 40th birthday. We were not disappointed. Our room, although not one with the roman style bath I've heard about, was very spacious, stylish, comfortable and luxurious, with sofa, coffee table, walk-in wardrobe and very large bathroom with twin wash...

We stayed at El Palace in Barcelona for five days in September. This is a truly beautiful old world hotel with gracious service and impeccable surroundings. Upon arrival, we were delighted to be upgraded to a lovely room with a fireplace and one of the original roman baths with two showers, one new and the other from the 1920s. Both...

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.
