A new deluxe hotel and apartment complex has opened on Passeig De Gracia; the street to see and be seen. El Palauet boasts six exclusive spacious suites (150 square meters) with room for up to 4 people. The hotel's attempt to launch a new concept of Barcelona living includes combining the old with the new to create a contemporary modernist decor with a unified feel. The linen textured floors complement the handcrafted Corian furniture providing for a soothing and relaxed atmosphere.
The Modernista Suites are outstanding. Each one is equipped with a private bathroom, chromotherapy system, dining room, work space, fully equipped kitchen and a balcony or terrace overlooking Passeig de Gracia.

If you're looking for a unique, exclusive and extremely elegant stay in the city, then El Palauet is an excellent choice. Ideally located in the city's high-end shopping district, it's a short walk to Plaza Catlaunya and the Old City and it's right next to chic streets such as Rambla Catalunya, Enric Granados and Diagonal. You're also a stone's throw from Gaudi's Casa Batllo and La Pedrera and a quick metro ride on the green line to pretty much anywhere in town.
It's competitively priced compared to the city's 4 and 5-star hotels, and they have special deals during the off season (November, January and February). This quality new complex is a welcome addition to Barcelona's apartment and hotel scene.
