Avenida Palace Review

Ideally located at the bottom of the Eixample, a five-minute walk from both the airport bus and the Passeig de Gràcia RENFE stop, this hotel has an elegant and traditional style, despite dating from only 1952. The lobby is wonderfully ornate, with curving staircases spinning off in many directions. Everything is patterned, from the carpets to the plasterwork, a style largely echoed in the bedrooms. (Read: If you want contemporary minimalism, stay elsewhere.) The Beatles stayed here in 1965 and a "Beatles Suite" is enshrined with mementos and paraphernalia.
