Wonderful Stay
We enjoyed our 2-night stay at Hotel El Palace. The service was excellent. Our room was very comfortable, although Barcelona was really hot and the AC didn't blow very cold. The hotel was located well and there are lots of dining options around. The hotel breakfast was delicious. Nice rooftop terrace.

Absolutely Loved El Palace
The décor of this hotel is fantastic. It brings you back to a more elegant time where hotel guest felt like royalty. There are modern touches hidden behind period pieces, like the TV behind the mirror and a hidden mini-bar. But the most outstanding aspect is the service. The staff will just make anything happen for you. I would go back again and again and again.

4/10 Fair

Not 5 stars.
Check-in is 3:00 we arrived at 4:00 after a long travel day. We were was told our room was going to be ready for one more hour. Came back at 5:00 and was told probably one more hour. We had to complain before they actually moved us to a different room. The room was nice and very comfortable. My husband had the breakfast buffet and did not care for it at all. I ordered eggs Benedict received a single egg benny with nothing else on the plate. We sat in the main area for drinks but only received the menu. Waited over half an hour no one came back to take our order. So we just went elsewhere. The front doorman and the desk people were great. Would not be in a rush to return. 5 stars not in my opinion.

Barcelona 2022
What a hotel! I stepped up for our 25th wedding anniversary and El Palace Barcelona did not disappoint. Just a stunner from the moment you walk in and the grand lobby draws your eyes all the way through to the bar at the end. Tip top concierge service asking questions about our tastes to give us several great options to pick from. They made a few reservations for us as well. The rooms are great, well laid out with plenty of space and comfort. Design to the nines throughout the hotel. Don't miss the live music and styling of the Bluesman Cocktail Bar, great way to finish a day out in Barcelona.

Exceptional service and beautiful rooms. If you’re looking for a five star hotel this is it. Pricey but very nice. In a nice area

8/10 Very good

Five Star property, top quality service. Room was nice but needs more attention to practical considerations, e.g., no place to put things in shower (floor only), need to crawl on floor to plug in devices.
