Glorious time in Barcelona
We had a fabulous visit to Barcelona and the El Palace Hotel had a lot to do with it! It is a beautiful hotel that is located within walking distance (1 mile or less) to many sites - museums, squares, Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas, etc. (Note - we live in NYC so we are used to walking so our definition of "within walking distance" might not be the same as others). The hotel staff service was amazing - the concierge made reservations for us and the housekeeping addressed our request right away (such as when we needed an iron or needed extra soap). We loved the live music in the Blue Room (they play every night beginning from 8 PM to 1 AM). Our room (junior suite) was clean and spacious - there was a king sized bed and a couch. The bathroom was huge - bathtub and separate shower. We ate at Caelis for lunch - delicious! For breakfast, we ate across the street since we typically walked while eating our pastries. We had a drink one night on the rooftop bar - gorgeous view. Overall, it was an amazing trip. We'll go back to Barcelona and to the El Palace Hotel.

Excellent hotel a real 5 star
This hotel was perfect from start to finish, a true 5 star hotel. On arrival the check-in staff upgraded us to a suite as we were staying for our 10th wedding anniversary. The room was absolutely stunning with an original roman bath and super king size bed. The hotel left a bottle of cava in our room as well.. This hotel used to be the Ritz and you can see why from the luxury décor and furniture all around you. The concierge staff were extremely helpful and recommended and booked two restaurants for us. We had not booked breakfast with our room, but you can still go for breakfast and choose between a continental or full breakfast. Both options were excellent and the breakfast lounge and garden area are lovely. The hotels location is also excellent, we were approx. a 10 minute walk from the main square where you can book and pick up the tour buses or walk down ramblers area. The perfect hotel for a romantic stay in Barcelona we cannot recommend highly enough

Everything was splendid with the hotel! The breakfast was par at best and the staff in the breakfast area wash not attentive. Minor electrical issue so the power would go out ever time the hair dryer was used. All minor issues but should not occur at a 4 star hotel

Loved El Palace
The staff was so gracious, helpful and professional. The soundproof rooms were appreciated! The rooftop terrace with the winter garden, restaurant and pool was a wonderful retreat in the late day and evening from the busy atmosphere in the city.
