“With excellent position and great service, a definite place to stay in Barcelona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

We've now stayed at the Gallery several times over the years. It's position is excellent for the centre of the city and all its attractions

Staff are very friendly with great service. We were pleased to see it's updated it's food offer and we ate there more than once. This was unusual for us as we would normally eat at a nearby restaurant when staying in town

Value is good for a city centre hotel and we would strongly recommend it to anyone in that price category. The hotel is spotless

Only modest issues we had were with slightly dodgy wi-fi in our room and one toaster for breakfast as we stood in a queue ! To be fair, the staff soon sorted these modest problems

As we love this City, we will happily return to the Gallery and we look forward to that in the Autumn. Just be careful of the many beautiful shops nearby !!

Hasta luego

Dear Mark & Anne,
It is a pleasure to know that you stayed in our Hotel several times, in your visits to Barcelona. We are working to have better Wifi connection, and we take note about the toaster of the Restaurant. We are glad that we enjoy the meals in our restaurant, actually we have a daily menu (lunch and dinner time) from Monday to Friday for 18 euros.
Please let us know your next dates of your trip, we will be very pleased to welcoming you again.
Best regards,

We got a very good deal on this hotel through an offer site and sometimes when you book these offers you don't get quite the same standard, however this wasn't the case at all. From the minute we arrived, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We'd arrvied before check-in but were given a complimentary drink voucher each which meant we were able to get ourselves settled and by the time we'd finished, they had rooms ready for us. The rooms themselves are extremely clean and well equipped - we had a free stock mini-bar, an i-pad to browse local attactions, restaurants, etc and everything you could possibly need in the bathroom. Most importantly, the beds were really comfy.

We had breakfast included in our package and there was a good selection if you wanted a continental breakfast and there was eggs, bacon and sausage if you fancied something hot. The only little fault was that the hot water for making tea was in an insulated jug, so it wasn't particularly hot, but everything else was great.

The hotel is in an upmarket area with all the designer shops on the road beside it, so there was no worries being out at night. One of the stops for the hop-on hop-off tourist bus is also just around the corner, as well as a metro station on the other corner, so getting around is very easy.

There's currently a new pool and gym suite being built but although we were warned about possible noise disruption, we didn't experience any at all.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona and would happily stay there again if I ever go another time.

Room Tip: We had a room on the street side with the others in our party had a room at the back of the hotel...

Dear Guest,
We would like to thank you for taking the time to write about us! We are so glad that you enjoyed Barcelona so much! We’ve already report that the water to make the tea was not hot enough.
We hope that the new pool will be opened this summer, so if you come back you will enjoy the swimming pool.

We hope to see you soon again!!

The Gallery Hotel is an unpretentious building central to most of Barcelona's tourist delights. Very helpful & friendly staff, clean & quiet for such a central location.

Breakfast was a delightful buffet of hot & cold food my only complaint was the self service coffee machine which usually had a queue wating to use.

We received a free upgrade to our room choice & a late (2pm) check out. Our bedroom & bathroom were tastefully decorated & very clean. The beds were firm and there was even a pillow menu! We had the free use of a well stocked mini bar as well as a free bottle of cava that the hotel had very kindly left us for my wife's birthday. This was a lovely touch that my wife and our friends appreciated.

The hotel bar was well stocked & a treat as the measures were huge and served in goldfish bowl glasses.

We had a brilliant stay in Barcelona & would have no reservations about staying in the Gallery Hotel again.

We stayed at the Gallery Hotel for three nights and the overall experience was very positive.

The hotel is well-positioned, being just minutes from Diagonal station, so links to the airport and other parts of the city are all excellent. It is walking distance from Las Ramblas and Port Vell, although about 20 minutes to the latter, so the Metro might be a better option for some. Our 'superior' room (405) was facing the road, but this was fine as the road was quiet and the double glazing cut out any external noise.

Room facilities were very good, a good sized room and bathroom with a good quality mattress and pillows, robes and slippers, iPod docking, wifi and a safe. The safe was floor-level, which I found awkward, but better that than not having a safe. There was an excellent range of toiletries - possibly the most extensive I've experienced. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean, and I liked the turn-down service.

The breakfast selection was fine for us; there was limited hot food, but an excellent choice of cold meats, cheeses and fruit, what seemed to be freshly squeezed juices, and a Nespresso machine - convenient and easy to use, and having test-driven one, I now know not to buy one, so the trip has saved me money!

The Gallery Hotel has various business facilities, and seems to have a lot of business guests. We stayed Sunday to Wednesday, and on the Tuesday morning, we were woken before 7.00 by various inconsiderate guests closing their bedroom doors loudly. While there's not a lot that the hotel can do about this, I would have found it an issue had we not been leaving quite early on the Wednesday.

The one thing that keeps me from rating the Gallery Hotel as excellent was the service, which was not uniformly excellent. Check-in was speedy and efficient, but we weren't told about the complimentary wifi or newspaper, nor given any information about breakfast; of course these were all things that we could have asked about, but I do feel that the information should have been offered this information. There was also, generally, little warmth or friendliness from the front desk staff. I'm not looking to make new friends, but in particular, our welcome wasn't particularly, well, welcoming.

We booked a flight and hotel package, so I can't comment on the room cost specifically, but I found the overall package to be good value. I would certainly recommend the Gallery Hotel, and would consider staying there again when returning to Barcelona.

We stayed in the Gallery hotel for my wife's birthday.
I booked a suite and was not disappointed.
On arrival check in staff were very friendly and helpful as all the staff were for our entire stay.
The suite was absolutely top class and went way beyond our expectations it had loads of extras that we were not expecting, the complimentary whiskey& brandy was a great touch.
The neighbourhood was beautiful and within walking distance to las rambalas.
Would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Gallery hotel to stay in while in Barcelona & we will definitely be back.
I also have to mention the cafe directly across the road from hotel was absolutely delicious and very reasonable.

Stayed 2 nights in a standard room for a business meeting. In my last trip to Barcelona, I had stayed in a hotel that was technically a 4 star by local standards, but was really a glorified dormitory room complete with painted cinderblock walls, so my expectations for the Gallery Hotel were low, despite their location in Barcelona.

Check-in was very efficient, but when I was handed an old-fashioned metal key instead of an electronic card key, I was expecting (notwithstanding the hotel's website pictures) another glorified dorm room.

So I was surprised when I entered the room to see modern fixtures, modern decor, and a bathroom that did not beat me in age.

Wifi was a bit slow--I had difficulty making Skype video calls.

My room overlooked the enclosed atrium gym area, but had extra thick modern glass, so i was not even able to hear the exercise machines. On the other hand, it made for a less than glorious view.

I dined once at their restaurant and had no complaints.

Would definitely consider this place again.

Would highly recomend the Gallery Hotel. We stayed in a superior room - 405. Spacious, with absolutely no noise from the road. Good adjustable room temperature with super kingsize bed and lots of pillows. Complimentary mini bar was well stocked and an excellent aray of toiletries. Safe, bath robe, slippers, ipod docking station, tv and dvds in English to borrow from reception were excellent touches. Good maid service. Only comment - require more milk for the tea tray, but when asked for a huge jug arrived in seconds. All the staff were very helpful, friendly and courteous. The breakfast buffet had a comprehensive selection and was constantly replenished right upto 1100am. Only comment was on one morning the warmer wasnt working properly and the hot food was cold. I felt the staff could have offered us food direct from the kitchen but it may have been a language communication problem.
We went on a 6 night Travelzoo deal which for a city break was excellent value for money. We found Barcelona to be safe, relaxed and friendly.
