El Palace Hotel

668 Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes
Barcelona, 08010, Spain
TEL: 34-93-510-1130

Built in 1919, but renovated in 2004, this Eixample neighborhood hotel is near several major attractions: Las Ramblas, Passeig de Gràcia, The Picasso Museum, and Museum of Modern Art. Beyond the wrought iron gates, guests find a grandiose property, complete with chandeliers, gilded mirrors, and ornate patterns. The hotel’s 125 rooms feature early 20th-century décor, antique furnishings, fireplaces, marble bathrooms, and heated towel racks. Dine on Catalan cuisine at Michelin-starred Caelis Restaurant or international dishes at AE Restaurant (designed like a Parisian brasserie), and then head to the hotel's Rien de Rien bar for a drink and jazz.

Room to Book:

If you’re sensitive to noise and vibrations, book a room on a higher floor. The metro runs right under the hotel.

Insider Tip:

The hotel is two blocks from the spot where Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, who designed the Sagrada Família basilica, was struck by a tram in 1926.
