Built in 1919, originally as a Ritz hotel, the exclusive boutique El Palace offers classic luxury with exquisite palatial decor throughout.

El Palace Hotel has opulent style, with a particularly impressive entrance hall that has marble colonnades, ornate mouldings, richly upholstered seating and crystal chandeliers. The hotel has seen Salvador Dali as a former resident of the Royal Suite, adding important art history to this long-standing city institution.

Relax in the lounge and salon, all with palace decor and old style furniture, or visit the contrasting contemporary gym or spa. The hotel is centrally located near the Gothic Quarter and famous landmarks such as the Picasso Museum and the Sagrada Familia are close by.

Caelis, the hotel's gastronomic restaurant, has been awarded one Michelin star and is a must for fine dining.

The spacious guest rooms maintain the royal feel, with some rooms sporting mosaic-covered Roman-style bathrooms, 19th century marble fireplaces and classic style furniture. L'Occitane en Provence luxury amenities come with your room.

Surrounded by great transport links, the hotel is 20 minutes away from el Prat airport.
