About Us

El Palace Hotel, first opened in 1919 with a neo-classical façade and grand public areas, has been totally refurbished and opened again in late 2009 as a renovated grand luxury hotel. Considered Barcelona's most iconic hotel for over 90 years, the works have preserved the classic spirit, distinguished as a symbol of the hotel tradition and considered nowadays as the only Luxury Traditional Fresh Hotel in the city.

Location: Set in the heart of the city center, close to Paseo de Gracia and Las Ramblas. It will take only 30minutes to arrive by car to the airport and 15minutes to the port (subject to traffic conditions).

Accommodation: 120 new luxury rooms, 42 of them being Suites and Junior Suites, fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology. They are elegant, with classic luxury style combined with the most contemporary style in the bathrooms; some of them with Roman Bath decorated with different color mosaics.

Gastronomy:

L´Éclair Restaurant recently opened and located near the lobby and it is open 7/7 - from 12.00 to 11.00. p.m with a Brasserie Menu inspired by the Mediterranean flevors. A piano bar entertains our clients from 6 to 8 p.m. from Thursday to Saturday

Diana’s Romantic Garden: recently opened at the hotel’s rooftop terrace including a totally ecological swimming-pool inspired in the Roman Baths designed by Cesar Ritz. More than 50 autochthone vegetal species configure the garden full of pergolas with different kind of flowers that will make client enjoy a sensorial experience with 360º panoramic views to Barcelona. The Gastronomic Restaurant called the Winter Garden Restaurant honoring the antique hotel’s hall is completing this area.

Mayan Spa:

El Palace has launched the Mayan Luxury Spa and Fitness Room, a unique spa with a Temazcal Prehispanic Sauna exclusive in Europe. Inspired in the Maya Culture of Mexico, it becomes the ideal place where body, mind and soul are blended together

Best of the Best

“Wow” is a common refrain upon entering the El Palace hotel. Interiors have a soft, sophisticated tone, while marble colonnades and crystal chandeliers sparkle like they did in the 1920s. The 120 guestrooms are classic and comfortable, with natural stone bathrooms and decorative fireplaces from a bygone era. Catch live jazz over cocktails at the Bluesman Cocktail Bar, or enjoy panoramic views at Diana’s Garden featuring a swimming pool and the Gastronomic Luxury Restaurant the Winter Garden, by the house Chef Marc Mallasen. You’re a stroll away from Las Ramblas and high-end shopping.

Hotel Tip

Salvador Dalí once lived in his namesake suite, now adorned with Italian damask, handmade rugs from India and a roomy Roman bath.

Sorry, I got this backwards. the hotel review is in Ben's area and this is the hotel review, but I'am reviewing Ben instead. Very happy with Ben's recommendation. I've already referred him to a friend of mine. Great service from Ben. He is very quick to respond to all questions. Stays on top of everything.
