The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The grocery stores and the deli. The Argentinian empanadas were uniquely delicious. I had the meatball and tuna flavors. Their Paellas were good for not being a restaurant and price was very inexpensive. I kept going back three times to get me paella especially the seafood one.

This is a large department store adjacent to the Plaça Catalunya and so is a convenient stopping point for anything you need in a large department store, and air conditioned so a welcome relief from the Barceloña heat.

However, we were totally put off by the lack of service from several members of staff... Hard to spend money with this lack of interest.

The Corte Ingles is a multi-level superstore, much like a mall with a grocery store. There are breathtaking panoramic views of the city on the top level with the cafeteria. Enjoy tapas while taking in all that Barcelona has to offer. For families with picky eaters, the cafeteria has enough options to keep everyone pleased.

Centrally located and close to public transportation - bus and metro is El Corte Ingles right on Placa Catalunya. This huge department store has several stories with shopping options for everyone. The top floor is for food although it's entirely inside with 360 views of Barcelona.

The "basement" level of the store was my favorite as it had a really great supermarket, ready made food and a gourmet store of wines and foods and this is where we purchased most of our souveniers, as well as bocadillos and pastries to go on a daily basis. The staff is very pleasant and nice. There is also a wine bar on this floor allowing you to try the top wines they sell in their wine store. A definite must for anyone visiting Barcelona.

I saw suggestions to use this store for gift baskets, but beware! Several weeks ago I paid quite a lot for a gift basket that has not been delivered, and customer service refuse to help me. They suggest that I go back into the store to speak with someone but I have returned home to the US. Highway robbery.

I bought a product on September 2023, and I never received it. After many complaints (dozens of emails, endless calls...) El Corte Inglés agreed to return me the money in February 2024. It's April 2024 and I am still waiting for it. Awful experience, which has not been solved yet.

Good store with the consistently worst customer service known to man.

While 99% of the employees are normal and even helpful, I consistently have a run in with that ridiculous employee who’s ego gets in the way of their job.

I’ve had a problem, or someone I’m traveling with has had a problem, every single time I go to Corte Ingles, throughout my 40 years of travel.

I have to learn to avoid the store like the plague.

I have been to this store on a number of occasions and I have to say that the staff are rude and mostly unhelpful. It's hard to find someone to help you, usually because they are busy doing something other than customer service. If you are lucky to find a member of staff, they hardly know anything about their products . I have been or talked down to so many times in this store, my friends also have had terrible staff attitude problems here and very upsetting experiences. If they intend to sell to international visitors, i suggest Corte Ingles train their staff in good customer service. Certainly if they are unable to learn an international language like English, to help tourists find and advice them on products, then they should at least try to be patient with people trying to speak Spanish and not talk to us like we are scum of the earth. Yes I agree with the afore said review, possibly the worst service in the world.

This is not just a department store. Its gourmet floor on the lower level is full of food options that vary from Belgian chocolate, 6000 euro whiskey, fresh fruits
to ready made food choices like paellas and fresh baked goods of every kind. It is a great place to pick up a sandwich amd enjoy it in the park next door. One also can get tax refund processed right in the store . But as an after note, i never received a refund after returning home and whatever their process was created a lots of headache at the airport customs… took me two hours to stand in different lines and still
never got a refund on my credit card.
