Stayed here for 4 nights at the start of June however had booked this hotel when there was only a couple of reviews. Cannot recommend this hotel enough. Clean, spacious rooms (we stayed in a double room on the first floor). I had concerns about noise due to previous reviews however despite the fact we stayed on the first floor, next to the elevator and above reception facing the main street the noise (or lack of!) was not a problem. Slept soundly and no noise could be heard whilst in the room - only when standing right next to the hotel room door and it was minimal. We never ate in the hotel as there is a great bakery called 365 just a few doors down and is great for pastries and rolls at very cheap prices.

Central location as you can walk to just about anywhere from here and there is metro stops nearby and also is 5 mins walk from the final aerobus stop (€5.90 pp).

Would definitely stay here again, book now before it becomes too popular!!

I just had a wonderful four night stay at Vinnci Gala. The staff were wonderful without exception and did everything they could to make our stay exceptional. The rooms are well designed and very comfortable and the hotel is perfectly located to get to the major attractions. I couldn't have imagined a better experience.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of the hotel have balconies that are quiet.

The hotel is situated just 5 min walk from Plaça de Catalunya, so very convenient to reach, if you arrive with the bus from airport. You can also walk to reach the sea and the tube station is just next to the hotel. Hotel is brand new and stylish.

Rooms are big with nice interior and quite big balconies overlooking inner yard. When we made a reservation via one of the online booking engines, I left a remark that we would like to have a room on a higher floor. Exactly this was taking into consideration, and we had a room on the highest 6th floor. Rooms are clean and beds are very comfortable.

Good Wifi connection and excellent breakfast in addition to what has been said above, made our stay outstanding. I could only recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with windows towards inner yard, they are very quiet.

Decided to visit Barcelona again after a few years gap. Internet searches came up with this 'new' hotel.
Description was very appealing and ,we later found, completely accurate.
I can not recommend this hotel more highly. From the moment you enter the lobby with the amazing sight of the grand staircase to entering your room you will not be disappointed.
The bar area is very comfortable and was a great place to watch the European cup final on the tv.
Breakfast is in the well appointed restaurant, all you could possibly want to set you up for a hard day touring the sites.
As stated above try this out you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Higher floors are obviously better if you are on the front of the hotel but the distant view of The...

Lovely clean hotel and decor is modern and stylish - excellent location as only 5 mins walk to Las Ramblas. We arrived before the check in time so no surprise our room was not ready - needless to say for our inconvenience they upgraded us to a superior room and a voucher for 2 free drinks at the bar - much appreciated but when we ordered our 2nd round of drinks we were slightly stung by the $20 charge for 2 vodka and diet cokes!!!!!! The rooms were to a great spec and couldn't be faulted on the cleanliness. The staff were very helpful and friendly and i would highly recommend a stay at this lovely hotel

Great hotel in very handy location. Just open a month when we stayed. Picked it based on the 5 trip advisor reviews at the time. So close to the centre and yet so quiet. Quiet room (we are at the back of the hotel), blackout blinds in the rooms and comfy bed make for a very good night's sleep. We didn't chose the in-house breakfast option - there are a couple of cafes a few doors away and lots of other choice within a short walk - we prefer the variety of eating out. One thing I learnt on this trip - kettles are not normal in Spain! There are no kettles in the room for making your own coffee / tea - I was surprised at first as I expect this as the basic norm. But when a local explained to me that people typically don't have kettles in their home, I accepted this as just the way it is in Barcelona! Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Worth requesting a room at the back to make sure you get a quiet one. I suspect you won't get mu...

Very nice hotel in a great location for walking to many of the major tourist attractions in barcelona. we stayed in a superior room which was a nice size at the front of the hotel which had a small balcony for standing only. the bed was queen size and very comfortable, bathroom was very modern with everything you would need and the room was quiet at night with triple glazed window and door with excellent sound proofing. Breakfast was great with hot and cold options in the usual continental style. The Staff at the front desk and the bar were very nice, spoke great english and were always very helpful if we had questions about barcelona and travelling to attractions. If walking is not your thing the metro is accessible across the road and you also have the options of busses and taxis all of which we found to be very reasonably priced.
