“Wow” is a common refrain upon entering El Palace Hotel. Interiors have a soft, sophisticated tone, while marble colonnades and crystal chandeliers sparkle like they did in the 1920s. The 120 guestrooms are classic and comfortable, with natural stone bathrooms and decorative fireplaces from a bygone era. Catch live jazz over cocktails at the Bluesman Cocktail Bar, or enjoy panoramic views at Diana’s Garden featuring a swimming pool and the brand new Gastronomic Luxury Restaurant the Winter Garden, by the house Chef Marc Mallasen. You’re a stroll away from Las Ramblas and high-end shopping.null
