"Excellent location and helpful staff"
Great location within walking distance of the Old Town section as well as high end shopping. Close to a Hop On Hop Off bus stop which we took around the city. The bed in our room could have been a bit softer. The front desk staff were most helpful and very friendly.

"Great hotel near shopping and historic sites"
We arrived at the hotel around 11:00AM after disembarking a cruise. Our luggage was promptly removed from the taxi and placed in the hotel lobby by the doorman. As soon as we checked in, our luggage was placed in a secure holding area until our room was ready. Normal check-in time was 1600 hours (4:00PM), but when we checked back with the front desk, we learned that our luggage had already been taken to our room which was available shortly after noon. That was much sooner than we had expected and a pleasant surprise! The front desk clerk helped us identify several dining venues in the area from which to chose. The next morning, we enjoyed a buffet breakfast with fresh fruit, bakery items, assorted cereals, hard boiled eggs (already peeled), assorted cheese, and fresh orange juice. The waiter came by periodically to refill our coffee cups. We walked to Guadi's Casa Batllo building to tour his amazing design and architecture. Then we walked to the Plaza de Catalunya stopping by the El Cortes Ingles department store for some shopping. Everyone we met was courteous and helpful. We took a taxi the next morning to the Barcelona airport. All-in-all, a very enjoyable visit to Barcelona.

"Better than expected, perfect location!"
The hotel was better than expected! Room was large and on the top floor. The neighborhood was just amazing! Perfect location. 1 block away for placa cataluna. In the center of it all. The bell man was really nice. Even told me how much taxi should cost back to airport and told me to be careful if taxi driver tries to rip me off. The person who checked me in initially was a bit rude, but i was past that. Hotel was amazing!

Avenida Palace is a truly fine hotel. We were in Barcelona on holiday, and we found the personnel were helpful and courteous, the restaurant was great, and the bell staff arranged a car for a special trip we had planned to Sitges.............all done with attention to detail and on the schedule we requested.

"Avenida Palace Stay"
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who would be going to Barcelona. It is centrally located, the service was excellent and the staff great. The room was very comfortable. Upon arriving the staff greeted us and allowed us to store our luggage, as we had arrived early, thus allowing us to explore their beautiful city. Our thanks to the Avenida Palace for a wonderful stay. Yes we would stay there again should we return to the city in the future.

"Great location...BUT noisy"
First let me stay that most of the staff were wonderful. Very nice, allowed early check in and very accommodating. And, the location at the top of La Rambla was convenient to everything. Now for the bad news...first morning in the hotel NO hot water. Not lukewarm, but ice cold. The response at the front desk was it will be fixed in five minutes. Helpful if I was still in my room waiting, but I was standing at the front desk after a very cold shower. The hotel was the noisiest place I have ever stayed. I realize it was a weekend and I was in Barcelona, but both nights at 3am I was awakened by loud voices. Using their inside voices was not a familiar concept to these people. However, rudeness was a concept they were very familiar with. I decided to end Saturday evening with a cocktail at the rooftop bar. Unfortunately for me, there was a private party going on. I was asked to leave. How about some signs telling the hotel guests the rooftop bar was closed? Finally, the rooms are nice but look a little worn. The bathroom door looked like a dog had used it as chew toy.

"Beware: Bad Customer Service"
We stayed in Avenida Palace two nights. The customer service is awful at this hotel. The front desk employees are very rude. The elevators are so slow that it took us 15 minutes just to reach the lobby from 7th floor. Everything is outdated. The keys weigh close to 10 pounds maybe that is why they only give you one. Not once did the front desk acknowledge our presence. Usually people in Barcelona say "hola or buen dia/good morning" not in this hotel. I don't think that these employes like their job. Also they dont have early checkout. Their procedure is to wait until you come down with your luggage and are about to exit the hotel to check out. I found this very inconvenient because it only slows down the checking out process. So I won't be staying in this hotel again.

"NIcer than the very expensive hotels"
Our stay was outstanding after a small hiccup that was professionally and promptly taken care of. Our room was big, clean, comfortable and had an amazing view. The rooftop pool and bar area was beautiful and we were excited to invite our friends from the "Expensive,Fancy" hotel two blocks down the street to join us for a sunset with views of the whole city and sea. They did not have this luxury at Palace Hotel. The staff was friendly, helpful and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. The food and drink was very good. The location could not have been any better. The old world luxury was like a step back in time. I would recommend this hotel to any and everyone.

The most points I give to the hotel are towards central convenient location and very clean overall. The staff was very polite and smiley , yet was very short on answering my touristic related questions . and none of the staff tried to do the extra step to try and deliver extra or better info. Overall I enjoyed my stay , especially the great service at breakfast. Staff should give more attention to visitors questions and extant more info.

"A classic, with ideal location"
This trip was a little bit of business with a lot of pleasure. The business part did not justify staying overnight, but I love the city and have family there, so I did. Location is ideal: two and a half blocks away from Plaça Catalunya (which is the heart of town and also where the Airport Shuttle Bus arrives and departs), facing the very nice Corts Catalans boulevard, and also a few steps from a Metro stop. It is certainly better to stay on this side of the Plaça (and walk to Ramblas and Barri Gotic) than to stay in a hotel on the other side of the Plaça (where the tourists get noisy and, later, roudy). The hotel itself is classic, both in the positive sense (elegant, majestic) and in the negative sense (everything is old). Some people care more about those positives, and this hotel is then ideal (along with Hotel Regina, a couple blocks south). If you happen to care about the negatives (and are expecting a modern chain hotel with many modern conforts) then there are better places for you to be.

"Nice hotel close to Las Ramblas"
My room was easy 75-80 degrees, while the hall of the hotel was a comfortable temperature. Asked someone to turn on AC and was told it doesn't get turned on this time of year. Asked them to turn off the heat, came back and found both windows wide open. Couldn't sleep due to loud yelling (in English) from rooms sharing the "courtyard".

Excellent breakfast, though no items changed during our 6 day stay. Ideal location at north end of Ramblas & Barri Gotic area, 1 block from Plaza Catalunya. Easy walking north to Eixample & Gaudi places, and south to beach areas.

"Good location, dated hotel"
Hotel is "okish" but the room given (5 nights) was nothing like the images on site, for example carpets fitting a motel instead of wooden floors or 2 single beds pushed together instead of a king bed. Hotel is clean and staff are nice also location is very good but rather disappointed about the room given for the amount paid and feel like we were misled.

"Location, location, location"
The hotel is superbly placed and that is its greatest asset. Room was good size but a bit worn out (carpets, beds). Third bed was not made when we came in, water bottles not replaced when empty, room was facing into an internal chimney so although we were on the 9th floor all we could see was a concrete wall. I expected more for the price. However, it is on a very convenient metro station, 50m from a great tapas bar and on tge ramblas.

"Elegant, good location - choose room carefully"
This is a beautiful, elegant property in a good location, on a main street, somewhat between the Barri Gotic and Sagrada Familia, around the corner from the "Block of Discord" and La Pedrera (Gaudi, etc.). If you are a walker (1-5 Km., no problem) all is within reach. Otherwise, cabs are plentiful and the Metro is right there. Our room was big and lovely but had two beds (next to each other, pretty big but still separate). When booking, they said that was all that was available. That morning, we called and they said a room with one big bed ("cama matrimonial", as they call it :-))was still not available but they could make up our two beds as one ("Italian style", as they say - I'll have to think about that one.) When we got to the room, it was NOT made up Italian style and we were told they couldn't do it, but another room was available with a cama matrimonial. We had already unpacked and let it go. OK, no big deal, but make sure you check everything. Also, so rooms were very dark, others very bright. Check that as well, depending on your preference. Staff was nice, friendly and helpful.

"In the heart of Barcelona"
An older building with a small, but beautiful lobby and registration desk. The room was on the small side, with room for only a desk and chair, a low chest and a king size bed (a bonus!) Nicely appointed bathroom with granite vanity top, two sinks, French amenities, full tub and shower combo. Clean, well maintained. Buffet breakfast (extra) was very decent, within a large dining room, attentive servers, good variety of bakery items, cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, plus hot items. Scrambled eggs were fresh, potato cake, sausages and bacon (Europeans do not crisp their bacon!). The service at the desk could be spotty when they were moderately busy. No dedicated concierge, so the desk clerks had to give directions and recommendations to guests, doubling up their responsibilities. The best thing about the hotel is its proximity within walking distance to the main upscale shopping street of Barcelona, Passeig de Gracia, and the Rambla pedestrian street, a couple of blocks in one direction to Gaudi's architectural masterpieces, Casa Pedrara and Casa Battlho, and to Placa Catalunya in the other direction. A handy cab stand is at the corner. We never had to wait for a taxi.
