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
This was our 2nd stay at the Gallery Hotel, never go back to the same hotel but you cannot beat this hotel on all levels. The hotels itself is fantastic with lovely clean and well equiped rooms with the added bonus of the rooftop bar which serves delicious cocktails and food with great staff. The location of the hotel is perfect in a lovely area with many restaurants, cafes and shops. The metro and a taxi rank are very near. What makes this hotel is the staff, you always receive a warm welcome and they could not be more helpful. Wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Barcelona, the hotel made our stay, cannot wait for our third trip!
Spent my one evening after a cruise here. The solo rooms were awesome - comfy bed and lovely bedroom with bath that was on par with more expensive rooms. Area around hotel includes a fabulous tapas bar and Casa Mila which you can tour and have a fabulous meal at. Highly recommend this hotel!
The Gallery hotel is in a terrific location in Barcelona. The staff was very friendly, the property is lovely, the rooms are clean and well-equipped, and the breakfast was terrific. We ended up having dinner at the hotel on a Monday night when our other “preferred” choices were closed, and it was the best meal of our stay in Barcelona. Highly recommend!
This was a hotel recommended by our travel agent. We arrived and were greated with a refressing cold drink and things only got better from there. The staff was solicitous and friendly and oh so eager to serve our every wish. I want to give a shout-out to Falcom the bell boy, and each of the front desk staff who provided service: Ricardo, Axel, Cristina, and last but not least Matteo. Their English was good, they were full of suggestions for must-see sights, and their suggestions for good restaurants for a reasonable price were right-on. Our room was clean (by Sofia) and quite spacious by European standards. Staff even remembered our names and room number without prompting when we returned from an outing. In addition The Gallery Hotel was centrally located near sights, shopping, and restaurants. We highly recommend this hotel.
This hotel made our stay in Barcelona. The location is perfect in that the metro is beat by, there is a taxi tank round the corner and if you go out st night it feels very safe. Every recommendation from the staff was amazing and they could not be more friendly and helpful. Axel at reception was one of many who definitely did more than would be expected. The rooftop pool is lovely with great cocktails and eats. We went up on our second evening to find a fun salsa evening that was taking place - what fun! We will definitely come back.
