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.

great stay

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.

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.

hotel is gorgeous! decor in the main lobby is amazing and the rooms are modern and chic. the bathroom was so clean, updated and spacious. it was a few blocks from gran via main street and from the metro. my only complaint was 3/4 staff weren't friendly. it was our honeymoon and i tried not to let it get to me until our last day, one staff member gave us the wrong direction to our tour office and we got lost and we missed our tour to see Montserrat. overall, it was a beautiful hotel, very busy and booked, but staff were a bit like most of Barcelona's attitude: anti tourist
Pakteema T. Couples Thailand, July 29, 2014
Exceptional!!!!!

Excellent room, Superb Serice and Great location

It is a wonderful place to stay in Barcelona. It is simply incredible how they keep up the consistency in the level of service and attention to detail. Literally every whim was accommodated and the daily touches even on turndown service went above and beyond. They offer a free Wi-Fi through all hotel area. Yes, it may be more expensive by comparison with its peers but it is worth every penny. We really had a pleasant time and there was such a right decision we made to celebrate the birthday during our stay at El Palace. It is simply the best like an oasis of calm in a bustling art city and I would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is very lavish in style. It is centrally located and within walking distance of restaurants and attractions. Concierge help was excellent. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. A lovely gift of bottled water and chocolates awaited us upon arrival. There is turndown service nightly. The only drawback is that we had to wait over three hours to check-in. We arrived off a cruise ship and came earlier than the check-in time. It would have been nice had they offered coffe or other refreshment while we waited. However, they did get us into our room ahead of normal check-in time.
