Barcelona is home to Gothic architecture, and is the rich cultural capital of the Catalan region of Spain. To visit Barcelona is to be exposed to a wonderful tapestry of ancient streets mixed with art nouveau architecture. There’s no better way to experience this heady mix of culture and art than to stay at the historic Hotel Avenida Palace. This popular 4-star hotel offers levels of luxury and opulence in an amazing setting. It’s a hotel fit for royalty, and truly representative of one of Europe’s cultural centers.
Hotel Avenida Palace Barcellona looks like it belongs to a classical period of 19th century Europe, but it was in fact built in 1952. The 151 rooms evoke feelings of old world charm with a flavor of luxury. The moment a guest is ushered into the stylish lobby by a top hat wearing doorman, is like being transported back in time. The lobby warmly greets visitors with classically designed architecture. Beautiful columns vie for attention with dramatically sweeping staircases. The title “Palace” is well earned with chandeliers and ornate furnishings drawing the attention of prospective guests.
The rooms continue the theme of classic opulence. Each one is air-conditioned and filled with beautifully upholstered furniture, but no compromise has been taken with modern conveniences here. This may be a hotel full of classic furnishings, but the helpful English speaking owners have ensured every possible modern appliance has been provided. All rooms have satellite television, free wireless internet access and minibars.
This is the perhaps the most perfectly located Hotel Barcellona has to offer. The centrally situated hotel requires only a brief stroll from leafy Gran Via for guests to find themselves in the hub of Barcelona, The Passaig de Gracia. Another brief walk brings guests to exciting Las Ramblas, the famous Gothic Quarter. Visit http://www.venere.com/it/spagna/barcellona/ for more information.
