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
Loved this place from the moment we arrived. The staff were amazing throughout our stay, genuinely helpful and professional. Our room was perfect with a very comfy bed, really appreciated all extra touches; coffee machine, bluetooth speaker and soft towels. Breakfast was good and plentiful if you like a continental style.
Thanks to everyone at the hotel for making our stay so good.
I was booked to Gallery Hotel by my company for MWC as many others. The hotel got a nice vibe but not all facilities were available and the room's AC was wild, I ended up with a cold. (Not that it is too strong, but it works intermittently, so you end up too cold or too hot and the regular change in temperature got the best of my body)
All that said, my stay was absolutely wonderful thanks to the kindest staff I ever met. They went above and beyond with my odd requests, always with a smile and genuine care, they quietly left succulent chocolate treats everyday after cleaning the room, and even helped me after I left the hotel with my crazy deliveries.
I'm not so knowledgeable about Barcelona, but the location was also nice, the Sagrada Familia 5mn tube away, la rambla Catalunya with its tapas bars (Go to la Bodegueta, nothing is better around) and connections to Fira Gran Via and Las Ramblas.
Conclusion, I don't know if you will like the room or not, but the staff will make sure that you enjoy your stay like nowhere else.
I was in town for the Mobile World Congress, so rates were double their usual. This boutique hotel had good ratings so I selected it; I asked for a firm mattress, which they provided, and that was a good start to the stay. The hotel is centrally located, near subway stations and taxi stands, and there are several restaurants and cafes within 100m. Walk 5 minutes and you are on a street of high-end shops; walk another 5-10 minutes and you come across more affordable shopping. The hotel amenities were fine; the room was quiet, comfortable and clean, and the food was good at breakfast, which is the only time we ate in the hotel. The room service menu is limited but available 24 hours a day. The main distinguishing feature of the hotel is its staff: from the reception staff to the bell-boys (the ones we saw were all male) to the housekeeping staff, everyone was smiling and helpful in a proactive way. That made us feel welcome. The hotel is in a well-lit and busy area, so we felt safe walking around the area in the evening.
I arrived alone before my husband.
The hotel is in a great location just off Pg. de Gràcia where the high end shops are and Gaudí’s La Pedrera is a couple of blocks down the road, it’s newly refurbished so it’s looking great and not tired as some hotels are.
Before I’d even got through the door (which was opened for me) I was greeted by warm friendly smiles so I immediately felt safe and at home, after checking in I was offered a glass of champagne or water which was a lovely touch, we met two lots of staff on the front desk area whilst we were there, I didn’t get the first shifts names but thank you to them and Cris, Matteo and Ricardo all were extremely professional, really friendly and super helpful, nothing was too much trouble they helped find us a great place to eat nearby and directed us back to the airport on the underground which is a doddle as the entrance is just meters away from the hotel.
We like a quiet room so we had a room at the back it has double windows so we could hear no outside noise, the room was very clean and comfortable with a choice of pillows and a mattress topper that made the bed so cozy I slept well and I normally don’t in hotels!
Housekeeping do a great job on the room and it was attractive with everything we needed for our short stay.
I would stay here again.
I highly recommend staying here.
We stayed here two nights before boarding our ship for a Meditterrean cruise.Room was very clean, staff friendly and very helpful and there was a restaurant inside that was convenient. There were lots of shops to sightsee at on the boulevard.
