“the perfect ending to our vacation”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

I don't normally write reviews or even fill out post-trip evaluations, but I had to report on this hotel. We booked this hotel for a short stay in Barcelona following a 12-dy cruise. The hotel was perfect in every way. The staff were friendly and informative and the room was quiet, large and attractive, including every amenity you could imagine. The breakfast buffet was fresh and had a variety of choices. Conveniently located in the upscale district of Eixample, it was a pleasant stroll to many of Barcelona's top attractions and a prime location for viewing Barcelona's fabulous architecture.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor, which seemed to be a perfect location.

Nice hotel and friendly staff !
Hotel is located downtown and close to shopping and restaurants (many tapas bars around the corner).
Rooms and bath are spacious and beutiful decorated. Very quite rooms even though windows are to the street.

Breakfast is very Spanish with the typical meat cuts/ham and there are toast, cerals and lots of fresh fruits and fresh orange juice.

When checking out the staff even walked me to the street and made sure I could pay with credit card in the taxi. So very customers focused !

stayed here 3 nights , hotel is right in the middle of passieg de gracia and rambla catulnya . great location , metro station next door .

rooms are clean and decent , modern business feel , some rooms overlook the central courtyards and do not have direct ventillation .

reception was always helpful for recommending restaurants , making bookings or directions .

breakfast was decent .

they need to do something about hotel beds as even the double beds are two singles joined together . these beds come with wheels and keep on moving at the slightest movement .

over all nice place to stay in barcelona , away from the crazy crowds on las ramblas !!

We stayed here for 4 nights, myself and my two daughters.
Hotel is very well positioned for quiet stay, shopping and lively night life. This is a business hotel however reception staff are helpful with 'tourist' info. Hotel is very clean. Breakfast is ok but you can find better at the price. The cafe directly opposite is great!! Disappointed in the room as we booked for 3 adults but it was only set-out for 2 with cups etc. The hotel used the excuse that it was a 2 person room with a sofa bed hence 2 cups, bath robes etc.
No tea or coffee facilities until we asked for it (even though it is stated in the brochure) so quit disappointed in the hotels preparation although it didnt lessen our enjoyment.
Russian hotel staff are not very approachable. We also sent 3 emails before our stay asking about airport transfers with no reply.
We would stay again but would sort the room from the beginning.

We booked this hotel through an on line package with Travel Zoo which included breakfast and free mini bar as well as welcome wine, we thought this was really generous for the price we paid and found the room very nice. The location is in a nice neighborhood a little farther from La Ramblas but with easy access to the metro and low cab fares in town this was not a problem. Would recommend as a nice place to stay, the breakfast was generous and the staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: try to book through a package on Travel Zoo or another discount vacation site

Located at the Diagonal Metro Stop on Carrer Del Rossello between Rambla de Catalunya and Passeig de Garcia, this hotel is in a very nice part of Barcelona. You would be within walking distant to some of the most expensive shops on Passeig de Garcia and the great open Rambla of Catalunya with it's middle of the road pathway for pedestrians looking to grab a seat of one of the many outdoor restaurants to have a pint of beer, some tapas or a nice glass of wine and watch the people stroll by. My husband and I found the Gallery Hotel to be very modern, spacious and clean. The maids who cleaned our room made a few mistakes, like forgetting to give us enough towels and refreshing the free coffee / tea service with milk etc.. but that was just a few minor errors but enough to make us give this hotel a 4 star rating. The beds were super comfy and they offer a pillow service so you can order the kind of pillow you prefer (feather or hypo-allergenic...) They also had an Tablet in our room we could use to search tourist information and hotel info. I've never seen this before and think it's a great idea.

On the downside, the hotel doesn't have a pool and breakfast is an extra 18 Euros. We opted to go to the coffee / pastry shop across the street called El Fornet. For a quarter of the 36 euros it would cost us to have breakfast at the Gallery restaurant we had great fresh pastries and sandwiches, juice and coffee. It also didn't offer movie rentals so we only had 3 English channels to choose from BBC, CNN and Skynews. Pretty boring.

We arrived early in the morning and the front desk informed us our rooms weren't ready (of course) but offered to store our luggage so we could start our sightseeing without dragging suitcases with us. Most hotels will offer this service but if you know you'll be arriving before noon at your hotel ask them if they offer this service or can provide early check-in.

NOTE... check you hotel bill thoroughly before paying your bill. We were charge 36 Euros for breakfast which we never had. Didn't realize the mistake till I was in the taxi heading for the airport. I'll contact them to see if they will refund us. I'm sure they will. If not, I'll let you know.

Room Tip: Our room on the 4th floor overlooked an interior courtyard and the backs of other buildings with the...

We booked this hotel with a city break deal through voyage prive' and were pleasantly surprised that it was so good. Unlike a few previous reviews, we could not hear the metro, in fact it was quite quiet where our room was located. We had a superior room with a free mini bar! The room was perfectly large enough and very clean and comfortable. The rest of the hotel was also very clean and tidy. There was a good choice of food at breakfast and the evening meal we had (once) was also very nice. The hotel is well located, far enough out of the main city centre, but within walking distance of La Ramblar, the Gothic Quarter and Sagrada Familia (about 20-25 mins depending on pace) and on the door step of Passage De Gracia and La Pedrera with Caso Batllo' being about 5-10 minutes further. To be honest the only thing I could fault was the three days of continuous stair rod rain and high winds!, looking forward to going some other time, hopefully in the sunshine :-)

Room Tip: Superior rooms come with free mini bar
