This was formerly the Ritz. And it is definitely "ritzy". We had a wonderful 4 nights at the Palace. It is beautiful. And that is an understatement. The public areas are breathtaking. And the hotel rooms are very nice and very comfortable. The bedrooms are well appointed and are wonderfully decorated. The bathrooms are modern. The breakfast buffet is excellent. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The rooftop pool is small but adequate. And the views from up there are excellent. The Palace is located centrally. Just a block or 2 from La Rambla's high fashion shopping area, We will be back next summer.
El Palace was once the emblematic Ritz Hotel in Barcelona. As of today you can admire the details from tycoon Cesar Ritz in 1919. The location is superb, the size of rooms are big and comfortable in comparison with European standards, and all the people working there were always trying to be helpful. Outstanding service and attitude from Alexis at the front desk, always willing to assist with anything. We really felt like being at home.
This elegant but yet welcoming and comfortable hotel exceeded all our expectations from the gracious helpful staff to the delicious food to the luxurious decor! Our family of 7 felt very pampered. The rooftop views are spectacular whether you were there for a swim a meal or a refreshing cocktail. Breakfast in the garden terrace was a delightful way to begin the day and the food and service in the aMar Barcelona was superb!
A beautiful hotel. Room was spacious and well-appointed. Breakfast was excellent. Concierge was very, very helpful. I highly recommend this centrally located hotel. Beautiful lobby and bar area. Well priced for the luxury that was there
Sparkling clean and luxurious rooms in a perfect location. Amiable and professional staff. Good breakfast, great coffee. Highly recommended. We were a party of 11 looking for a short 3-night stop before embarking on a cruise, and Hotel El Palace was a perfect choice.
This classic hotel has it all. perfect location, amazing staff. The rooms are spacious and super clean. They even accept dogs. The terrace is a lovely place to have some fresh meal. the pool is not big but its big enough to be fresh on the Catalan heat.
This hotel is beautiful and offers service unparalleled to any other hotel I’ve been to around the world. Prior to my stay, the hotel reached out and asked what time I’d be arriving so that my room would be ready for check in. The hotel itself is big, beautiful, and historic. The room was updated but with old school charm and was comfortable, spacious, and well decorated. Highly recommend!
Absolutely marvelous. From the moment we arrived our room was ready and the staff went out of their way to make every part of our stay spectacular. A special mention to Tatiana you was simply the best and went out of her way to make sure our stay was just perfect. I would also like to mention Hugo as well who was so nice and always had a smile on his face even when delivering room service at 7:30 in the morning. We can’t wait to return soon.
This is an outstanding hotel with an incredible service culture amongst the staff. Their level of general happiness and service quality is something I have rarely seen before. The room we were in was with modern appliances and well appointed. Overall the hotel has a charming throwback feel to a bygone era and is a lovely place to stay at when visiting Barcelona. The bar downstairs is a great meeting place. The rooftop bar too is lively and wonderful afternoon place. There is a cute pool and the new restaurant in the El Palace is to die for. There is also an elegant live band blues bar open from Thur - Sun. Very happy and will be sure to repeat my lovely experience there when we are back in Barcelona.
I had the wonderful opportunity of staying at this Hotel with my sister for a short city break. The hotel is situated in a great location for either going down to the port of seeing the sights like the Sagrada Familia and is in the heart of town for upscale shopping. From the moment we entered the hotel we were made to feel so special and all of the staff really looked after us. The concierge team were so helpful and even remembered us by name and room number when ever we went to the desk. We stayed in room 421 which was a junior suite. The room faced the interior of the hotel which meant it was so quite and peaceful. Everything in the room was so elegant and well appointed and housekeeping added all the special touches when you went out for the day making sure the room was lovely when you returned. The communal rooms are so opulent and grand you feel so special but they were also welcoming and a pleasure to use. We ate at the Rooftop terrace restaurant and bar on both nights. The food did not disappoint and we were lucky enough to be at the St Joans celebrations on our second night with live music and fireworks. The staff remembered on the second night what wine and cocktails we liked to drink and made our evenings very pleasant - they could not do enough for you. I would love to come and stay here again when I next visit Barcelona it was a real treat. Yes it is expensive but as they say you only get what you pay for.…
