El Palace

Barcelona, Spain

It’s the Château de Versailles of Barcelona that has seen the who's who of history’s most celebrated icons walk through its doors.

Salvador Dali and wife Gala called it home for years, and when Josephine Baker visited the city, no hotel but this opulent grande dame would do. At the El Palace Hotel Barcelona, a sense of history is palpable around every corner, from the Versailles-style decor of the lobby that hints at the previous life of the hotel as a Ritz, to the Art Suites where history and luxury designs intertwine to take travelers on a trip back in time. Beyond its opulent stateliness, the El Palace has substance too. There are four restaurants here and a Mayan-inspired spa where traditions passed down through generations offer complete rejuvenation of mind, body and soul. But the real highlight of the hotel is its romantic roof garden where fountains, secret walkways, pergolas, and over fifty varieties of plants create an urban oasis. On those warm summer days and evenings, it’s the place to be for a glass of wine to panoramic views of the city.

    The "El Palace" is probably one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed at. That is saying a lot because I have stayed in luxury hotels all over the world. I think that your prices are very competitive as well.

    This is a superb hotel. I cannot fault it in any way. An excellent location and staff that are exceptionally well trained. Having garnered a large number of air miles over the years this hotel has to go in the very top drawer.
