Wow! Such a beautiful building. The rooms are small, but not more than usual for Europe. The breakfast was outstanding and set in a light and airy room. Easy access to great restaurants and shops just minutes from the hotel. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We got upgraded to a beautiful rooms. Very spacious with excellent amenities. Staff was most helpful and they allowed us to take our tour on morning of check out and return to our room before going to our cruise ship. The breakfast buffet was pricey and not included in room price.

We stayed at the El Palace for 2 nights, pre-cruise, on 11/3. We arrived early-afternoon after exhausting flights from the west coast and were greeted by the friendly doorman who whisked our bags away and pointed us to the reception office which is tucked just off the main lobby. Fortunately, our room was available and we were escorted to our... More

This was our second stay at the palace hotel and it didn't disappoint. As we had stayed there 3 years before they upgraded our room and even sent up a box of chocolates. The room was extremely nice and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Would stay here again.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
