The luxurious, 151-room Avenida Palace Barcelona exudes fancy old-world splendor. Inside the beautiful building, chandeliers, an extravagant spiral staircase, and serous artwork channel elegance from a bygone era. The location is central: The hotel is in the heart of Eixample, between Rambla de Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia, and right by the Passeig de Gracia metro station. Rooms are simpler than the grand lobby but are comfy and include minibars, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs. There is a restaurant, a classy lobby bar, a beauty salon, and space to host conferences, meetings, or tie the knot.
