I had originally booked a hotel directly on the nearby Placa Catalunya, but I found this new hotel and changed my booking right before my trip. I am so glad I did! Although very close to Placa Catalunya, which is the center of everything, the Vincci Gala is on a much more peaceful street and was a very welcome change to the often crowded sidewalks and attractions in this busy city.
The decor is very sleek and contemporary, which I am normally not impressed by. However, I was very impressed with how this hotel was designed. The feel was much more comfortable than most minimalist, contemporary design tends to be.
The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast buffet was plentiful and delicious.
