This hotel should be 5 star not 4 star. From the minute I walked through the front door the service began. In fact, someone came immediately to take my luggage into the hotel. Front desk service was excellent. I got the room I had asked for. Now this room is large with a beautiful bathroom. The vanity has a basket of wonderful amenities. There is a minibar in the room with a nice size closet, electric pot with tea or coffee and condiments. FREE WIFI and it is fast. A desk with ample plugs for your computer and also to charge your phone. Tonight, I ate with my group at the TOP, a lovely dinner/Tapas restaurant and bar...under the Barcelona skies. This is also where the pool is and sauna. We had homemade Sangria, the best I have ever tasted. The waitress, Danique (spelling?) was marvelous. Don't hesitate to book this hotel. It's well worth it. And...I can't forget to mention the location which is perfect. I want to come back!

Room Tip: Go for the Superior rooms. You will be glad you did. They are wonderful. I like 216.

This hotel is very well located in that it is about 50 yds from the metro which makes it easy to get anywhere in Barcelona. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel is maintained to a very high standard of cleanliness.Barcelona is notorious in terms of thefts of handbags and pick pockets, but the area of this hotel felt safe. On a warm day the air conditioning is very effective, and the windows are at least triple glazed meaning there is very little street noise audible from the rooms.The orange juice at breakfast is freshly squeezed and excellent and the breakfast buffet has a decent selection for most tastes.
On the negative side - the pictures of the pool are misleading, it is only one to two strokes long and is more just a cooling down pool than a swimming pool. The bed was not the most comfortable I have slept in, and my husband and myself found ourselves both rolling into a dip in the middle during the night. The coffee at breakfast was always luke warm and not very good, even when my husband asked for fresh coffee, it suffered from the same problem.
It's a decent hotel in a very nice area and well located - probably better for a business trip than for a romantic weekend or family holiday.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for taking the time to give us some reviews about your stay with us. We really appreciate it and take all of them into consideration in order to avoid them again.
We are sorry to know that the pool and the breakfast coffee did not meet all your expectations. About the pool, as it is located on the rooftop, it cannot be any deeper; otherwise the building would not support its weight and it is just a way to refresh oneself while enjoying the solarium area. Furthermore, since we removed all the carpets of the rooms, we are totally aware of the beds problem and we are taking care of it in pursuance of a solution. Cleanliness and friendly staff are two of our main policies in the hotel so good reviews on them make all our hard work worth-while, thank you.
We are happy to know that you had a wonderful time in Barcelona and we are looking forward to seeing you again in your next visit.

The hotel is near metro and in the central place. There are lot of high end stores nearby. La Rambla is few blocks away. Staff is friendly and helping. Rooms were neat and clean. But the hotel is so closed that there is no view from any of the rooms. Has a nice rooftop bar and live DJ almost everyday. Gym sucks. Swimming pool is a size of hottub - lol. Overall I wouldn't mind staying there again.

Dear Mr. Ashwani,

Thank you for your comments on TripAdvisor, we really appreciate receiving feedback from our guests.
About the pool, as it is located on the rooftop, it cannot be any deeper; otherwise the building would not support its weight and it is just a way to refresh oneself while enjoying the solarium area. Moreover, we are aware that the gym may not meet everyone’s expectations and that it is not very big, however we try to keep it as comfortable as possible due to the available space.
We are also conscious that our interior rooms doesn’t have much views but an indoor patio, nevertheless all of them have natural light and you are very welcomed to stay on our rooftop bar to enjoy the views from the outdoors.
Nevertheless, we are very proud of receiving such kind comments about our staff and cleaning department, they all appreciate it and we are glad to know that you enjoyed and had a wonderful time in Barcelona.
We are looking forward to seeing you again in your next visit.

My wife and I stayed at the Gallery for four nights as part of a small tour group. Compared to many European hotels, the rooms are larger with sufficient closet/drawer space and comfortable chairs. Our room was exceptionally quiet, also. Probably another advantage is the hotel's central proximity to the city's historical venues, museums, parks with excellent access to public transportation. Our room was exceptionally clean with laminate flooring. The staff was professional and always helpful to any request. Their breakfast offering isn't as extensive as other European hotels in terms of hot cereal, fruit and some egg items, but generally adequate. We noticed that the machine brewed coffee wasn't hot, but the servers will provide small pots and certain other items upon request. We also experienced problems with the hotel's wifi service as we were unable to send outbound emails and there was network congestion and slowness at peak traffic times. There is a Starbucks just around the corner if better bandwidth is needed. Skype worked fine in the audio mode, though. Overall a pleasant hotel and we would recommend.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your comments on TripAdvisor, we really appreciate receiving feedback from our guests. We would like to apologize for both, the breakfast and the WiFi issue. We would like you to know that we are aware of the shortage of some breakfast dishes and we are already taking care of the matter in order to improve it as soon as possible. Referring to the internet connection, all our rooms are equipped as well with ADSL cable which may be faster than WiFi, anyway, our maintenance staff is checking at a regular basis all the hotel equipment and installations in the pursue of having always the best WiFi possible and we would like to apologize, again, for any inconvenience it might have caused.
Nevertheless, we are very happy to know that your overall stay and contact with the staff was pleasant and that you enjoyed all the beautiful attractions that Barcelona offers.
Thank you for your recommendation and we hope to see you soon here again.
