Built in 1919 as the result of a combined project by the Barcelona politician Francesc Cambó and the Swiss hotelier César Ritz, El Palace has fascinated both locals and visitors since it opened thanks to the architectural treasures it houses. It is a living symbol of the luxury and glamour that marked an important period in the history of the city of Barcelona, the 1920s. The typical design of that era, which originated in the Belle Époque and has been adapted to the highest modern hotel standards, is today the hotel’s most distinguishing feature. Salvador Dalí, Xavier Cugat, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Paul McCartney, Camilo José Cela and many other renowned and influential guests have, during the last century, felt at home in the hotel thanks to its elegance, sophistication and prestige.
El Palace Barcelona 5*GL can be found at the crossroads of carrer Roger de Llúria and Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, in the heart of the Eixample, the most central and renowned neighborhood of Barcelona. Located at only steps away from Passeig de Gràcia, the zone around the hotel offers a great variety of restaurants, theatres, and boulevards in an excellent shopping area where you’ll find the most exclusive and luxury brands.
