El Palace Barcelona opened its doors in 1919 as Barcelona’s first five-star hotel and is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World.
Born the former Ritz of Barcelona, El Palace Barcelona embraces its rich heritage, blending timeless glamour with contemporary experiences and impeccable service, creating a truly elegant and memorable stay in one of the world’s most historic hotels.
El Palace Barcelona is only moments from Passeig de Gràcia, the historic Gothic Quarter and home to some of the city’s most prestigious boutiques and restaurants. The hotel is surrounded by prominent modernist buildings such as La Pedrera, Casa Batlló and La Boquería and is a stone’s through away from the city’s prominent cultural and tourist attractions including Plaza Catalunya, and the bustling Ramblas, allowing guests and visitors easy access to explore every aspect of Barcelona’s rich history.
All 120 rooms and suites are designed in the hotel’s signature neoclassical-inspired style. Step into one of El Palace’s six signature Art Suites inspired by a former prominent guest artist and their artistic preference including painting, dance, architecture, literature, sculpture or music and you enter the worlds of Ronnie Wood, Salvador Dali, Joan Miro and Josephine Baker. From the 1500m2 Rooftop Garden, Terrace and Swimming Pool on the seventh floor, to the Bluesman Cocktail Bar and Cigar Lounge, with its live music and renowned cocktails, as well as its award-winning afternoon tea, art, and gastronomy offering in the Great Hall, and indulgent treatments in Luxury Mayan Spa, El Palace Barcelona is the perfect destination to dine and relax in style.
