The Luxury Hotel of Barcelona

El Palace Hotel has been totally refurbished and opened again in late 2009 as a renovated grand luxury hotel.

The works have preserved the classic spirit that has always characterized this luxury property, distinguished as a symbol of Barcelona’s hotel tradition. Set in the heart of the city center, close to Las Ramblas and in the most prestigious shopping area, it is surrounded by boulevards, boutiques and main attractions.

First opened in 1919 with a neo-classical façade and grand public areas , considered Barcelona's most distinguished iconic hotel for over 90 years , the hotel reopened with 125 new luxury rooms , 42 of them being Suites and Junior Suites.

A new room design, a soft interior re-decoration of public areas and lounges and the realignment and optimization of the architectural infrastructure enhance the beauty , majesty and luxury  of our Hotel like in the 20’s.

The Caelis Restaurant, awarded with a Michelin Star is part of El Palace,  with a full offer of top-class cuisine. Clients can also enjoy our 19/NINETEEN Restaurant located at the Hall of the hotel and the emblematic cocktail bar Rien de Rien.

El Palace has launched the Mayan Luxury Spa and Fitness Room, a unique spa with a Temazcal Sauna, exclusive in Europe .

"A Quiet Oasis In a Bustling City"

Located in a quiet neighborhod, just off of Passeig de Gracia, on the Gran Via de les Cortes Catalanes, this wonderful hotel is a totally updated experience that still captures the magic and history of old Barcelona. Within short walking distance of the Gothic Quarter, the Sagrada Familia, and the Casa Battlo, it"s the ideal place to stay. The staff is thoroughly professional and always friendly. They jump to help you or answer any question you might have. The lobby makes you feel that you are back in the late 19th century but every room in the hotel has been totally renovated to 21st Century standards. The complimentary breakfast is a great way to start each day. The spa and gym are the perfect way to end the day before a night out on the town! I"d go back in a heart beat.

"Superb hotel with good service”
The hotel Palace, is the former Barcelona Ritz. It was revamped a few years ago and looks great. The grand salon is very impressive, with nice pieces of furnitures. Breakfast room is pleasant, and I guess it is at the air during warm days. Buffet breakfast is very nice.
The rooms are of decent size, and bathrooms are modern. Nothing fancy but it is classy.
The concierges are very helpful.
We had the chance to have a room on the inner courtyard, so it was very quiet. As the hotel is located on a major avenue of the city, it is possible that rooms facing the avenue are more noisy.

"Flawless. Stunning room and Excellent service.”

Of the three hotels we stayed at in Spain, this was our favorite. Now, you should be prepared that to get there by taxi, you have to say it used to the Ritz (lots of hotel using the word "Palace" gets the cabbies a little confused). You are warmly greeted and assisted with the heavy doors every time you enter and exit. Your hotel key is a retro key on a large tassled chain, which I liked. There"s a beautiful old-world flair to the public spaces but not stuffy. The room was beautifully appointed with an old fashioned marble fireplace (not functioning as far as I could tell), incredibly comfortable bed, TV hidden inside the mirror (I know it"s not new technology but it always seems so cool to flick on the remote and the mirror turns into a TV). Large windows overlooking the main street but rich, deep and thick silk curtains keep the noise out.

The breakfast buffet is served in a beautiful, marble floored sun room. There are heaters on in the morning to take the chill off. One of the best breakfasts ever with hot foods, some Asian foods, fabulous pastries, cheeses, meats, little tapas sandwiches, cereals, etc. Very child friendly choices I noticed as well. Full selection of newspapers when you enter. Our breakfast was included in our room rate so it was a great way to start the day and kept us going until mid-afternoon.

The staff is attentive, friendly and helpful with every tourist need. The bathroom amenities were Occitane and were refreshed every day with full bottles by the housekeeping crew. Just can"t say enough about this lovely hotel and hope I get to stay there again.

“Felt like royalty”
The title of this hotel does not disappoint. El Palace is great, the rooms are spectacular and the location is prime for those who like being near everything, but not necessarily in the loud, busy hustle and bustle. The concierge is great and the hotel maintains old-class splendor as the keys are still turn key and you can leave them with the front desk each time you leave. Only disappointment was the high price for the breakfast buffet (32 euros per person per day). This turned us away from eating at the hotels every morning, which we usually enjoy doing. The room"s facilities made up for this.
