Overview

Old fashioned grandeur and elegance distinguish Hotel Palace from other ‘chain’ 5-star hotels, usually deprived of character and individuality. Unrivalled location right off the glamorous Las Ramblas area and close to the city’s historical and cultural centre makes this property an ideal base for exploring Barcelona by foot or using convenient transportation links.

The historical building housing the hotel, dating back the turn of the 20th century, still preserves its authentic spirit and charm, even though it was completely renovated in 2008 in order to cater to the needs of the modern, even the most demanding traveler. The hotel was formerly known as ‘Ritz’, which speaks for itself, as this hotels chain is associated with highest standards and luxury.

Each guestroom is a little gem of classical style, yet not lacking functionality. All of them have marbled bathrooms with exquisite toiletries and bathrobes, hairdryer and make-up mirrors, climate control, satellite TV with premium channels, direct-dial phone, Wi-Fi, radio clock, safe, and minibar. The rooms overlook a beautiful inner garden or have spectacular views on the city.

Additional amenities are countless: 8 fully equipped conference and meeting rooms, banquet facilities, business and secretarial services, 24-hour front desk, booking assistance, safe at reception, luggage storage, airport shuttle, parking and car rental, babysitting/childcare, laundry, dry cleaning and shoe shine, currency exchange and various on-site shops.

Caelis restaurant specializing in Mediterranean cuisine is beyond any comparison due to its exquisite gourmet dishes. The breakfast is served in the lovely garden with terrace. You can also enjoy snacks and drinks and take advantage in complimentary newspapers and Wi-Fi in the lounge area of the gorgeous hall.

Year renovated:   2010.  Number of rooms:   125.

Dining options

                        Nice and friendly staff. Nice design of hotel.

                        Poor room service. Bed was very hard, slept relly bad.

                        the hotel is a great location for sightseeing and shopping, very elegant atmosphere, classy hotel with very helpful staff- all rooms are attended three times a day, extremely clean;lives up to its reputation by all means-definitely worth revisiting!Overall an excellent hotel in the heart of Barcelona

                        The hotel is very elegant and beautifully furnished. Staff were generally helpful. It is a very good location for central Barcelona

                        I did not expect to be charged Euro 15 per day for WIFI. This is usually included, and would put me off staying there again.When we ordered fried eggs on the first morning at breakfast I did not realise that the hotel would need to find the chickens first. It took absolutely ages.

                        reconstruction going on during stay; spa not working;

                        Very friendly staff and location

                        Shower water smelt full of disinfectant, and did not feel clean after taking shower.

                        I liked the glamour of the hall , breakfast with salmon and champagne, special facilities of the room and the bathroom : TV in the mirror , shower from the selling . Very well situated, close to Catalunya Plaza and Paseo De Gracia.

                        friendly staff, luxury rooms, amazing location

                        9.2

                        The hotel has an excellent location. all the main touristy points easy to reach. Rooms are very spacious, quiet and comfortable. The bathroom is also very large and ours was equipped with a tropical shower and a seperate bathtub. Stylish lobby. Friendly and discreet staff, family atmosphere with a lot of delicate welcoming intention.

                        A swimming pool or a small fitness room could only improve the hotel image. Breakfast is too expensive and internet connection should be for free.

                        It is a beautiful hotel with amazing newly renovated rooms.

                        The staff were super, a very relaxing stay. Even though Hotel is on a main road - it's lovely and quiet, due to excellent double glazing!

                        No, nothing to dislike!

                        Metrd'otel and concierge

                        Having a terrible Nescafe instead of americano from the roin service

                        9.6

                        The hotel staff conbined proffesionalism, warmth and a sense of humour someing that only seems to happen in the best hotels. The rooms combine both classic comfort and style with modern faciities. Its very well situated for all parts of Barclenona and close enough to use taxis rather that public transport when one chooses not to walk. All the restaurant reccomendations given were good ones.

                        Excellent service and beautiful room, with a very large bed and exquisite decoration.

                        No negative remarks during my stay.

                        Friendly courteous staff especially the waiters at the bar and breakfast restaurant.

                        Could not get an early check in despite advising of our request months in advance.
