Oh my, the El Palace is simply breathtaking! We arrived after disembarking from our cruise ship at 7.30am. From the moment we arrived we knew this was going to be a wonderful experience. The taxi doors were opened for us and the cases taken into the reception. Our room, even though very early, was ready! And we were upgraded to a room with a roman bath! R207.... my oh my....It was exquisite! The whole hotel is a mix of parisian opulence meets Agatha Christie. It's swags are huge but belong there, the glass mirrors everywhere reflect the lamps and textures of the sumptuous rooms, the restaurant is where you would expect Poirot to be eating his breakfast while solving a murder!! Oh and before I forget this Hotel smells utterly scrumptious! You have to have stayed there to understand this.... It's invigorating and mind teasing! I could go an and on about this hotel and I assure you all, you will not be disappointed staying here for any occasion. The staff are very friendly, polite, and obliging. The rooms are dapper and we will definitely be booking the Salvador Dali suite next time! Yes we will be returning! Our room really was fantastic, everything had been thought about. You need to see the marble fireplace and the hidden tv! The bed was HUGE and the la Ocitaine bath products were such a treat. A perfect place for a honeymoon... Not to mention the complementary bottle of fizz and chocolates! Thank you El Palace!
Everyone must stay at this hotel once in their lifetime... Barcelona is an amazing city and the hotel is fantastically positioned. Go down to the cocktail bar and have a peek in the ONLY smoking room in Barcelona. The decor down there will blow you away.
In a nut shell, stay here! It's amazing!! I just wish I'd seen Piorot! ;-)
See you all very soon!

One of the best parts of our cruise was our pre hotel stay at the El Palace Hotel!!!!!! We cannot compliment this hotel enough. Every detail was taken care of. The interior is BEAUTIFUL. The service is one of the best we have experienced. The room was immaculate. The scent through out the hotel is wonderful. Room service was excellent. The dining room food was very good. My mother, my teenage daughter and I stayed here for two nights before our cruise out of Barcelona. A girls trip. The location is perfect. We were able to walk to several locations and felt very safe. Just having coffee or tea in the lobby is an event. It's a high class hotel, but not stuffy. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel. It's expensive but so worth the splurge.

Room Tip: We chose a larger room type since there were three of us. The hotel room was not as large as some rooms we have stayed in, but it was very easy to manage. The closet and bathroom were both very spacious and that's what was important to us.

This beautiful hotel which used to be the Ritz has kept all splendor of yesteryear.

The staff was so lovely, my husband and I arrived very early in the morning after an exhausting long light from Australia and the staff went out of their way to get a room ready for us early. The breakfast buffet was awesome and the rooms extremely comfortable.

With lovely staff and it's close proximity to all the great Gaudi sites of Barcelona, the is a great hotel to book.

This hotel is very well positioned. It’s within walking distance to the Barri Gotic (15 minutes) and 20 minutes to La Sagrada Familia. We walked with a 7 year old child and he never complained about the distance.

Our very elegant room on the top floor was ready at 9:00am, when we arrived from the airport. We were taken to the room by Celine (Guest and Public Relations) who made us feel as we had arrived to a friends’ house. We loved the large room, large bathroom and the jacuzzi in the bathroom, although it took us some time to work out how to operate it. A piece of plastic with instructions how to change the water flow options, is also used to operate the jacuzzi.

While our room was on the top floor, we stayed some time at the lounge and had breakfast every day at the restaurant (both located at the ground floor) and never felt any tremors as mentioned by some reviewers. The room was very quiet, away from the main road.

During our stay we were impressed with the quick and efficient porter and valet service. We rate this hotel as the friendliest of all the hotels we stayed in Spain. This is because of the Guest and Public Relations staff (Celine and Katharina). Every time we were in the lobby, Celineor Katharina would appear and have an informal chat, while recommending sites and making sure we were happy. We don’t like using a concierge, but because we were approached informally, we listened and did take some of the advice which was useful. We really loved chatting to Celine, because she made us feel as we weren’t alone in Barcelona, but had a friend!

In room dining options were bizarre and expensive, and we found nothing for our 7 year old son.

I don’t think you can find a better and friendlier hotel in Barcelona.
