El Palace


El Palace

Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes 668, Barcelona, Spain


Insider Tip

The World Heritage-listed Palau de la Musica Catalana concert hall is just a short walk from the hotel. Built between 1905 and 1908 in the Catalan modernist style, it is considered by many to be one of Barcelona’s most beautiful buildings. Guided tours are offered daily; advanced reservations are recommended.


El Palace Barcelona has introduced intensified hygiene and safety measures across all major
touch points in our operations, in accordance with guidelines issued by local health authorities
and the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
This includes the increased cleaning and disinfecting of common touch points, e.g. lobby areas,
public bathrooms and elevators, and the regular cleaning of all air filters and air conditioning
systems. We also continue to explore and test new technology to elevate our sanitization
methods such as electrostatic sprayers, foggers and UVC light.
Alternative check-in and check-out options will be provided to reduce the interactions between
guests and employees and to increase social distancing.
We will as well offer tailored housekeeping services to our guests to cater to their needs and
comfort. Specialized care kits will be available to all guests including face masks, disinfectant
wipes and hand sanitizer.
Social distancing will be observed throughout our hotel, with reduced capacity in relevant
locations, e.g. lobby areas, elevators, dining, fitness and spa facilities.
We have elevated our rigorous cleaning procedures for all guest rooms in compliance with our
cleaning partner experts, and introduced additional safety measures such as avoiding back-toback
usage of rooms to allow for deeper sanitation practices and changing of pillow protectors
and mattress pads between each Guest where possible.
The health and safety of our employees has been of the utmost importance. Health checks for
all employees, training on personal protective equipment and mandatory wear as per local
guidelines will be conducted, including the introduction of a manager position, to implement
and oversee all new practices, procedures and trainings.
