El Avenida Palace Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautiful hotel within walking distance to all the attractions. A half block from Las Ramblas. The lobby is beautiful. The staff was exceedingly friendly. They store your key when you leave, and cheerfully give it back when you return, so you don't have to worry about it. On the day we had to leave, it was raining and there were no cabs available anywhere. The staff gave us subway instructions to get to the train station, and all worked out well.

Great rooftop excellent for viewing city especially at night. Truly enjoyed this hotel.

Very nice hotel, close to everything, hotel staff is great, very friendly.Will stay here again.

This property is owned and operated by third generation family. Location to all major part of a tourist destination. Great Breakfast and it's worth every dollar you paid. Management and Staff are also friendly and pays attention to make customers happy.

The best hotel we could have hoped for. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, renovated bathrooms. Very quite given that it was close to center. Location was the best because it was walking distance from everything. We had an awesome time staying here and we will choose the same hotel next time visiting Barcelona. Plus there a bar and pool on a roof with a great view.

This Hotel was selected based on its central cith location and affordability. It did not disappoint. Room was large with very high ceilings. Bathroom was one of largest and nicest I have booked.

We loved our stay. The hotel is close to everything. We actually walked from the hotel to Sagrada Familia even though it several miles away. The staff was very professional and made sure all of our needs were met. They serve a very nice morning buffet breakfast with lots of selections. Would highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is right at city center. Very close to major shopping street and walking street. There are lot of good restaurants nearby. Hotel front desk is very friendly.

Room too warm. The room temperature was set at the hotel temperature and I was told it was not possible to make the room cooler.

We walked to casa Batllo Gaudi and the cathedral gothic streets and la boqueria and ramblas.love it !!!

Good experience. I enjoyed my stay. Staff were very friendly. They upgraded our room. I suggests they change their Matresses because they were not comfortable.

Avenida Palace is an elegant (but not over the top) hotel in the heart of Barcelona, on a busy street close to the Plaza Catalunya. It is a little old fashioned (e.g. a real key for your door, which you drop off at the desk when you leave the hotel) but in a good way, with high quality furnishings, lots of beautiful wood paneling, etc. The bathrooms were up to date, spacious, and easily shared by our family of 3 (two sinks, both a shower and a tub). We had a suite, and our teenage daughter could close off the living room when she wanted some privacy; we could likewise close off our bedroom when we did not want to be disturbed. There was a hallway that was large enough to serve as a third room. Amenities (toiletries, etc) were of excellent quality. The hotel breakfast, which was included in our stay, was in a bright interior room, and included both hot and cold items, with plenty of fruit. On two occasions we used the pool on the roof to cool off at the end of a hot day; the view was just beautiful. We thought this was definitely the expected quality for a four star hotel (and we have stayed in many places around the world).

This was my second time at the Avenida Palace, it's a very nice hotel, great location, very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend it.

Hotel was perfect for our stay. Great location. Comfortable room. Beautiful lobby. Only con was needed to go to lobby for wifi. Would definately stay again!

Great hotel excellent location room was huge with nice bathroom we enjoy our stay

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel, this time it was for a big family trip. Booked 4 rooms and couldn't be happier with the location and service.

Had a wonderful 3 night stay here. Location is excellent.....train stop from airport right outside main door passaige de gracia, exit catalunya plaza. Costs 4.50 euros and takes about 30 mins. Otherwise bus stop 1 block away or taxi 40 euros. Remember when booking room though that you might hear metro at night rumbling. I would book higher room ,it's 9 floors, facing the street or ear plugs if light sleeper. Lovely roof top pool and sitting area with small refreshment bar. Coffee, cava and view excellent! Great breakfast buffet, would definitely recommend as is open until 11am. We had junior suite which had 2 rooms with sofa sleeper in one with tv, and the other 2 single beds pushed together with their own bedding. Large bright bathroom. Found staff to be pleasant and helpful.

Loved the location right in the heart of all the action you are steps away from all the main atractian's its a grand old hotel but dont let the old fool you its been renovated and everything is top notch loved it

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cleanliness, location and service were great. Restaurant staff were not very friendly or helpful. Part of that was due to language

Good location, and the hotel looks good from outside. Everything else was just ok or lacking. Front desk staff was pretty cold and stingy with a smile or a "thank you". Don't ask them questions since they are busy chitchat with each other... except one guy who was helpful and offered some good tips.
