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.

Once of a lifetime stay at the Palace. It was hard to get out and leave the hotel. All time customer service and rooftop views. Check out our YouTube video of our trip for more sights: GoPro 2K: Running Around Spain and France HD.

We have stayed here before, and on this occasion just for the night. Beautifully decorated hotel. Good fun on the Friday night downstairs in the 'Jazz Bar' ... where we listed to live Cuban music. Breakfast was ample and the location is central.

Great hotel with a fantastic location - the service was remarkable. The attention to detail in the guestroom was amazing! Love the secret minibar behind the painting! The gold framed television went perfectly with the guestroom.

As we will be arriving in Barcelona early in the morning from a red eye flight...do you offer early check in?
Not sure. Best to email tuem and request early check in. I have done this previously at different hotels. Unless they are 100% booked , they will accommodate you.

Does the restaurant have vegan options for breakfast besides fruit, and what about dinner
I agree that the buffet has a range of options for vegetarians, some of which might be suitable for vegans, but I would ask them as they are always willing to accommodate.
