The El Palace Hotel Barcelona is a true historical palace and a truly extraordinary site. Opened in 1919, the hotel has preserved the 1930s palace hotel spirit when the accent was on the indispensable elements of hospitality, luxury and impeccable service. Renovated in 2009, it now possesses all modern comforts while retaining its old fashioned charm. There is luxury everywhere from the gold colored armchairs and the spa to the opulent salons. The hotel’s 125 rooms and suites are all sumptuous and offer guests a unique experience in line with the splendor of the site. The elegant and classical décor characterizes the El Palace. The Savador Dali suite pays tribute to the painter who lived here for a while. At the Caelis restaurant, award winning chef, Romain Fornell proposes a personalized, creative and inventive cuisine, and in the AE, visitors can enjoy the atmosphere of a typical Parisian brasserie. Both restaurants are worthy of the emblematic reputation the El Palace enjoys in Barcelona.


For many people, Spain rhymes with sun, sea and fiesta. The Costa del Sol has become one of the world’s most popular destinations thanks to its climate and its magnificent beaches. But Spain is so much more. Thanks to its dynamic energy since the fall of the dictator Franco, Spain has demonstrated an economic and social vitality unparalleled in Europe. Barcelona’s cosmopolitan and animated atmosphere both day and night, is a perfect example of everything the modern traveller likes about Spain. This contemporary metropolis is nevertheless deeply anchored in its Catalonian roots. Barcelona represents a typically Spanish “art de vivre” as well as being a showcase for the country’s artistic diversity. Barcelona has logically become a highly important tourist destination. The hotel industry has developed along with the city, and since the end of the 1990s, a growing number of establishments, notably boutique hotels have appeared. Some hotels however, have stood the test of time and still offer the luxury and splendor of years gone by.

As its name indicates

The Hotel El Palace Barcelona is truly a palace. As soon as a guest discovers the majestic lobby, he knows he is in store for an exceptional stay. Opened in 1919, El Palace is reminiscent of the palaces of the 1930s, when grand hotels where hospitality, luxury and service were of paramount importance. Entirely renovated in 2009, it possesses every possible modern comfort while at the same time, retaining its charm and its sense of class. Everything is luxurious. From the armchairs to the gilded ceilings, total refinement reigns supreme. In short, it’s a dream come true.

The 125 rooms and suites are sumptuous and offer a living experience equal to the splendor of the entire building. Everything is decorated in the historic style that characterizes the hotel. You can choose between the150 square meter Salvador Dali suite, named after the painter who lived here for a while, or one of the more modest Classic Deluxe suites whose bathrooms were inspired by ancient Roman baths. The hotel has three absolutely magnificent salons the most important of which is worthy of the Versailles chateau decorated in rich fabrics, gold leaf and the highest quality rugs. To visit rooms like these is like visiting a museum! The Palace also has a starred Michelin restaurant, the Caelis. Its Chef, Romain Fornell is the only Chef with a star in both Spain and France. The AE restaurant offers guest the atmosphere of a Parisian brasserie, and the Rien de Rien bar takes its inspiration from the English and serves cocktails and the highest quality tapas.

El Palace of course, has it own spa, as exceptional as the rest of the hotel which specializes in Mayan inspired treatment.
