Recent guest reviews

I had not appreciated that this hotel was actually the Ritz in a former life which explains the grand lobby and stunning decor. This is a very special hotel in a perfect location just slightly away from the mayhem of Les Ramblas. We can not fault the Breakfast and recommend drinks in the roof top bar. ........definitely Worth the extra euros.

This luxury hotel is a must stay if visiting Barcelona. Service is 10 out of 10. Staff met our taxi at the door each one personally welcoming us. This hotel definitely made our stay in Barcelona very memorable.

Unbelievable Location, Staff, Amenities, etc.......I could go on and on and on and on.....Spectacular! Cannot recommend it any more!!! Take Advantage and if your going to be in Barcelona and can stay here definitely do it!!!

We were celebrating my husband's birthday and the El Palace Hotel was exceptional. From the moment we arrived we knew it was going to be a special visit. The decor is elegant and charming. The staff are exceptional and would do anything to help. We enjoyed the rooftop bar and the Winter Garden restaurant. They had the best breakfast of any hotel we have stayed in. Fabulous hotel and well worth having on your wishlist. Thank you to the staff at El Palace for our memorable visit.

This hotel is very well located, the service is very good and personalised. I was travelling with my daughter, it was just the 2 of us we both had an excellent stay.. Shall definitely come back soon..

This is hotel is very well located and easy to visit all the main tourist sites. It is beautifully decorated. All the Staff are very nice and welcoming. Facilities are old but well maintained. I will defiantly stay here again.

We really enjoyed staying in El Palace. It’s Sumptuously decorated and very elegant. The concierge were helpful with restaurant recommendations etc, very professional and polite, we couldn’t fault them. Our room was a junior suite it was spacious clean and comfortable. The shower was great, & our bed very comfortable. The breakfast was very good, catering for everyone. The roof top bar is a nice place to have a drink and chill out with a good view over the city of Barcelona. We had dinner there one night and lunch another, both were very good. Very expensive price wise, they were over the top with both food and drinks. We were told ( also in our booking) that we were entitled to a $100. usa voucher to use for food, beverages or the spa. This wasn’t taken off our account at checkout, maybe an oversight. On the whole we enjoyed our time here.

We have just returned from our 2nd visit to the beautifully elegant aveneida palace having enjoyed our stay several years ago we wanted to visit again We were definitely not dissapointed in fact it was even better 2nd time round having been upgraded to now having a roof top terrace and pool The staff are all lovely happy and welcoming Our room was superb on the 8th floor with a balcony overlooking the city Location is superb right in the middle of anywhere you choose to visit if you want a charming place to stay with quality rooms and lovely staff this is the place to be We will be returning the next time we are in Barcelona thank you for a lovely visit

The building has definitely a history which can be felt streightaway when stepped in. Lobby area is mindblowingly stunning. You can grab a seat and just look at the structure and art to enjoy for a while. Lovely room with fantastic amenities. Its big and super clean. Staff are nice and friendly. The rooftop restaurant is also a great place to eat fine-dining food and get the best from wonderful garden and the beautiful restaurant area. What they offered and positively shocked me was the free first-class transfer service to the outlet village with VIP services. The only slight disadvantage was windows facing city, which was not completely sound proof and didnt let a nice view to outside.
