I've stayed with parents in a suite with sofa bed. The room was spacious and luxuriously renovated. The lobby of the hotel was also astonishing. The Michelin restaurant Caelis in the hotel was another surprise.

This hotel is truly fantastic - wonderful food and beautiful surroundings. The staff were absolutely outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and they carried out their tasks with such friendliness. The bar in the basement that has live music at the weekend was amazing.

My wife and I stayed in El Palace Hotel to celebrate our 20 year anniversary and also my wife's 'special' birthday. We underestimated the 5 star status attached to this hotel and were blown away by the excellent service and attention to small detail which we found in this hotel. The service was the best I have ever seen in...

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.

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.
