El Palace Hotel
Why we like it
- Grand luxury hotel in the heart of Barcelona.
- A hotel rich in architecture and history
- Close to Las Ramblas and the city's main attractions.
- Michelin-starred restaurant The Caelis Restaurant.
- Mayan Luxury Spa with a Temazcal Sauna.
Enjoy classically British afternoon tea, with sandwiches and scones with clotted cream, at the delightful 19/Nineteen restaurant.
It’s been a pleasure working with Ailine on the past two trips (Morocco and Iceland). Her efficiency, attention to detail and prompt action have been hugely valuable and ultimately led to the delivery of two hugely successful trips which our clients have been beyond impressed by.

Best time to be there
Spain is best visited in the springtime, when the temperatures are generally warm and comfortable. Autumn is equally comfortable, though less green and the landscapes are drier. July and August are very hot.
