Review Avenida Palace Hotel Barcelona

Page Content

Hotel Avenida Palace Barcelona
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 millionaire's home it's so ornate and shiny.

The Avenida Palace Hotel occupies a privileged location on wide, leafy Gran Via right between the popular Rambla de Catalunya and the shopping heaven of Passeig de Gràcia. Passeig de Gràcia is also where two of Gaudí's famous architectural masterpieces stand. The hotel is next to the cinema and the Passeig de Gràcia metro station is right outside the hotel. There are many nearby cash points on Passeig de Gràcia, which doesn't help with the temptation of so many high-class shops. Plaça de Catalunya and Las Ramblas are less than a 10 minute walk away. On Plaça de Catalunya you will find Corte Inglés a comprehensive department store and supermarket, and FNAC which sells English papers and magazines.
