|Reservation Information For The Avenida Palace Hotel|
Located in an up-market area of town, just a few steps from Passeig de Gràcia is the Avenida Palace Hotel Barcelona, the hotel the Beatles stayed at during their only concert in Barcelona in 1965.
This hotel rightly has the word "palace" in its name for when entering the lobby you are greeted by the sight of marble, chandeliers, gold staircases, classically upholstered furniture and yet more marble. It's like a Russian millionaire's home it's so ornate and shiny!
