The history of El Palace Barcelona and the city of Barcelona have been entwined for more than a century. Since its opening in 1919, the hotel has played an important part in all aspects of Barcelonan society. The novels of Carlos Ruiz Zafón offer a carefully curated tour of Barcelona. That is why it is not surprising to find the Ritz of Barcelona mentioned in his work.

The books of Carlos Ruiz Zafón will not go forgotten. A full collection of his work, in various languages, is on display.
The sophisticated décor of the suite stands apart with its elegant turquoise touches amidst a sea of tan and beige.
The classic furnishings lend an atmosphere of elegance to this luxurious space. The difference is into details and quality.

"Barcelona is a very old city in which you can feel the weight of history; it is haunted by history. You cannot walk around it without perceiving it"
Carlos Ruiz Zafón
His love for the city is palpable
The work of Carlos Ruiz Zafón takes literature and magic and mixes them together into extraordinary adventures. In this suite, we have done the same, adding the touch of elegance that has been our trademark since the very beginning to create an unforgettable experience.
