Recently we visited Barcelona and we stayed at the El Palace. The place is beautiful filled with grand old world charm. Absolutely magnificent and truly lives up to its name as a palace. The rooms are very clean, well thought out and very comfortable with a huge flat screen TV (Hubby was very happy with this one). The staff are all extremely well trained, discreet, friendly and helpful. It is definitely a hotel I would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to be pampered. I would especially like to thank a very helpful waiter at the cafe. Sadly I was not feeling well when we arrived at the hotel on the first day. Unfortunately as we landed really early our room was not ready so we decided to find a quiet discreet corner of the cafe and try to rest. This waiter not only made me feel welcome and comfortable even though I'm quite sure the hotel would not really appreciate a half dead looking guest, he made the extra effort to speak with the kitchen asked them for some lovely chicken consomme so I could settle my angry tummy. I'm really sorry I didn't get his name and I didn't see him again for the rest of my visit. I do hope the management of the hotel will make an effort to find him and thank him for me.

The staff was the kindest I’ve ever encountered on my journeys to Europe. They were always there and so helpful. The hotel was so clean and the rooms were beyond amazing. We cannot say enough about how amazing our experience was.
