“Good Coffee”
Reviewed 27 November 2011

Spent 4 days here and well situated geographically within Barcelona for walking around.

Rooms were not ready when we arrived and we only managed to get changed for our business meetings at the last minute in a toilet without having the luxury to shower before changing.

Breakfast is good with Nespresso coffee, lunch service a bit laid back and bar service in the evening too slow, staff not attentive enough to recognize more drinks are required for people joining a group and we usually decided to just get up and go out.

Rooms are quite small, and bathrooms are cramped.

Stayed here for 3 nights and loved it as our last Europe stop. One of the best we came across. Amazing breakfast with great coffee pod machine and pastries !! I always grabbed some for the road- delish! Room and bathroom were gorgeous and well lit for long sleeps. Highly recommend, oh, and such a short walk to main strip!

It could've been the sunnier days in Barcelona, compared to Madrid and Sevilla, or just the lovely fancy hotel, but I was thrilled to spend my last few days in Spain at the Gallery Hotel.

The hotel is very attractive, the food was great at breakfast, and the rooms are terrific. Turn-down service (and after siesta!) was a delightful surprise. Plenty of space in a double room for me to putter, and a very comfy bed.

Only (minor) complaint is no plugs near the bedside - so I couldn't use my phone as an alarm and charge it at the same time, nor could I use my laptop in bed if the battery ran low.

Desk staff was very helpful and made a terrific dinner recommendation for our last night in Spain - incredibly pricey but worth it, and an institution. They were also especially helpful considering we wanted to eat at the absurd-to-Spaniards hour of 7:30pm. It's tough to find a restaurant even open at that hour (you can always do tapas, but we wanted a full plate of food per person by then), but they found us a great place, made the reservation, and gave us a map to send us on our way.

We did return one afternoon for siesta and find my parents' room untouched by housekeeping, but when we called down they arrived within minutes and were fast and attentive.

The hotel's location was ideal too - about a block away from Pasaig de Gracia and Gaudi's amazing apartment buildings. But on a side street, so not loud or too busy. A bit of a long walk to the Ramblas, but we never bothered venturing down there on foot further than Plaza Catalan, because really the Ramblas is just a big street filled with chain shops you can find anywhere. We preferred walking the Passaig de Gracia and looking at the fancy stores (all designer and haute-couture) and used the Barcelona Highlights bus tour for a wonderful overview of the city and all the fabulous Gaudi-ness, along with the Olympic stadium, the view from up the mountain, and the beach. Can't wait to go back to Barcelona, and will definitely stay here again!

Very convenient for all the main sights but just far enough off the beaten track to be wonderfully quiet. Decent breakfast if you can get it at a reasonable rate. Very good Thai restaurant (Thai Gracia) not very far away.

There have been some comments on this site about patchy WiFi, but I found it worked fine - the only problem is that the desk staff tend to sign you up only for a few hours or a day at a time. If you ask them to sign you up for your full stay on arrival, there shouldn't be a problem.

It was our first time in Barcelona and we were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel was in an excellent neighbourhood with all of the expensive shops - Chanel, Jimmy Choo, Armani etc within a two minute walk. There are also a number of the more famous Gaudi buildings within five minutes. The hotel though is situated about15 minutes from Catalunya square and the top of Las Ramblas and we found ourselves walking up and down a couple of times a day - yes we could have used the Metro but that seemed to take longer if you didn't hit the right train.

Breakfast and was more than adequate - cereal, bacon, scrambled egg, toast and all the usual continental cheeses and meats etc. Other comments indicated that it wasn't worth 20 euro and we would agree but that is the price that you pay in any big city. Our deal was breakfast inclusive and we paid £141 per night for a superior room which we considered to be good value.

Staff are friendly and English speaking and more than happy to assist.

Room Tip: There is an inner "courtyard" which some rooms looked out onto. It is worth contacing the...
