Couple from Prague

beautiful lobby, helpful stuff, nice room with bad view
It was very beautiful and romantic. Stuff was very nice. Great breakfast. Only thing which was annoying was the life music at the bar at night.

Overnight stay, wish it had been longer!

The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful, location fantastic and the spa, although small, was very comfortable
It was great, I wish we were there longer. Will definitely return.

Hotel facility. Foods. Service
Best building, location, cleanness. Staff attitude and service were excellent. Everthing is rather pricey but worth paying extra. Hotel towel shows aging and would be nice if newly replaced.

Paul D. Couples Australia, November 7, 2014
great stay

design and furnishings; hotel staff; restaurant & breakfast
Only one odd snag: despite the excellence elsewhere, the local music in the cocktail bar was limited to rather inexpensive performance by amateur musicians as duos only. Surely the El Palace could lift its game a little here to provide professional level live music by say, a least a 4-5 piece live band. Odd that the music didn't match up to everything else.

El Palace - great hotel and location

Location, staff, comfort
We enjoyed our stay at El Palace. The room was well appointed, the staff were very friendly and provided us with good recommendations for dinners, tapas and maps to get around Barcelona. The hotel is close to the gothic quarter and shopping areas.
