“El Palace Hotel in Barcelona”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

I took my wife to Barcelona for her 60th birthday. We stayed at El Palace Hotel. I cannot heap enough praise on the staff and accommodation. Talk about total opulence and splendour, it was amazing 5* The Hotel made the trip something very special and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. We will most definitely be staying at the El Palace again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Junior suite which was called the Coco Mat. The reason it was called this was because...

Very nice hotel: nice room and very well located near the most important barrios. Th internal 1 michelin star restaurant (Caleis) is worth the money and i will not be surprised if shortly it will get a second one. Good services provided with the help of a valid concierge. Just a negative poin , I would have expect some basic SPA service ( Sauna, Steam room) to be offered for free to the hotel customer and based on the high rate that you are expecting from a 5 star hotel

Our recent stay was very pleasant. Highly recommended for its very comfortable as well as quiet room, attentive service, and its beautiful old world charm. The location is also very central and convenient to explore a great city.

Wonderful stay! Great staff! Very efficient concierge! I spent 3 nights at El Palace Hotel with my wife and parents. The experience was fantastic. Growing up in Europe, I was pleased to know that classic European hospitality still exists.

We spent 2 nights at the hotel and can safely say the service was outstanding, from the moment we arrived and were greeted by Caterina to when we left following a cheery 'adios' from the doorman. We stayed in the Junior Suite (223) which was beautiful, spacious, modern and comfortable...with a shower to die for! Breakfast was excellent and served in the most fantastic garden room. Located a few minutes walk from all the major attractions, the hotel is well located in Central Barcelona. If you are looking for quiet, calm and sumptuous surroundings in a busy city then this is the place to come.

Room Tip: Junior Suites face into the inner courtyard and are very quiet

I had an amazing stay at this gorgeous hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with recommendations on things to see and places to eat. The hotel was spotlessly clean, lavish and in a perfect location!
