Just off the Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona’s hip Eixample neighborhood, the Gallery Hotel provides a boutique base for a Barcelona city break. The contemporary lobby features striking light fixtures, modern artworks and plush purple sofas. Up on the roof you’ll find a petite pool and a sundeck dotted with colorful tables and chairs, plus a sauna (open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.). The ground-floor El Café del Gallery serves Mediterranean dishes and cocktails in a courtyard setting. All guestrooms feature soundproof windows, free mineral water, smart TVs, robes and slippers, and are decked out in shades of gray, deep purple and lime-green. The revamped Superior Rooms come with houndstooth cushions, bold wallpaper and pillow menus, and you can raid the minibar free of charge.
In the Area
The hotel is next to the gardens of Palau Robert and a short metro ride from some of Barcelona’s most iconic sights, including Gaudí’s awe-inspiring Sagrada Familia cathedral. The city’s legendary food market, the Boqueria, is a 20-minute stroll away. If you’re visiting the nearby Raval district, head to the Museum of Modern Art (MACBA) and the Museum of Contemporary Culture (CCCB); the area is also full of designer boutiques and galleries. In Barri Gòtic (the Gothic quarter), Plaça Reial is home to sophisticated bars and clubs such as Ocaña. Sunseekers should head to the waterfront, where you’ll find a bevy of beaches and seafood restaurants.
How to Get There
My wife & I stayed at hotel the night before our Holland American cruise on the Mediterranean. We arrived late at 11:20pm and were greeted by very friendly staff at front desk. We started out conversation with our limited Spanish, and they finished speaking English. Front desk recommended restaurant close by for late night tapas and drinks. Room was very nice and bathroom clean. Next morning we had a delicious breakfast buffet before cruise bus picked us up. Hotel staff very organized on bus transfer to cruise ship. Hotel was an “add on” to cruise package. Highly recommend!!
We loved the hotel so much that we booked two nights again and came back to Barcelona to stay here. The breakfast spread is good! The staff was supportive and friendly. The rooms were very clean and beds comfortable. Everything you need for a comfortable vacation is provided.
Gallery Hotel has to be one of the best hotels my boyfriend and I have stayed in. It is in a fantastic location right next to the Passeig de Gràcia and an easy 10 min metro ride (or 20/30 min lovely walk) to all the major attractions. The staff were lovely to deal with and very friendly and helpful. The room was comfy abd had all the creature comforts, plus the breakfast was delicious which is always a bonus! We will definitely be staying here again on our next venture to Barcelona.
My hotel room was upgraded both times, from a single to a standard double, without me requesting it, much appreciated.
Situation is excellent, walking distance from Placa de Catalunya and many visitor sites.
We stayed in the hotel for two nights in two double rooms. The hotel is modern in a suberb location, 2 min. from the Diagonal metero station. The service is really good in the reception, dinning room and top roof bar. The hotel serves delicious breakfast. For those of us, looking for a modern 4 star hotel, this a perfect choise. We will defently return.
