Page Content

Petit Palace Museum Hotel
Petit Palace Museum Hotel is a hotel located in the heart of Barcelona's most affluent and glamorous area - Eixample. The hotel is a four star inside a classic old building. Like other Petit Palace hotels, it provides quirks of design that add a touch of originality to the space. At the exterior, the usual plants that flank the doorway are replaced by large silver ball shapes made up of lots of small baubles. The lobby area offers fluffy brown rugs, that somehow work well next to bright red and blue couches. Clocks on the walls display the times in various international cities. There is a black piano at the centre of the lobby area, providing a focal point for the room.

The hotel will be particularly attractive to families. There are not many hotels in the city centre offering family size rooms, however these are on offer at Petit Palace Museum Hotel. There is also the added bonus of pet-friendly policies.
