Hotel El Avenida Palace - For the Old-school cool

If it’s good enough for Joan Miró, Ernest Hemingway and The Beatles (they’ve all stayed here), it’s good enough for us. The Hotel El Avenida Palace lies on one of Barcelona’s busiest streets, Gran Via, in a historic Catalan building. But you don’t have to worry, all 151 rooms have sound-proof windows.

A small rooftop pool, classical fittings from the mid-century and a complex, golden escalator worthy of a palace are just some of the features you can expect. In the last sixty-five years, Hotel Avenida Palace has been a famous cafe – and since then it is unlikely that customer service has fallen short. Do not be alarmed if employees remember your name when your clunky key is dropped to head out at reception-that’s how the things work here.
