Our first floor room offered a good level of comfort (large comfortable bed, clean), but also a good level of noise from the street, from the metro system underground, and from noisy neighbours. The first two types of noise did not bother us that much, but I would not expect a hotel at these prices and in this category to have such poor insulation between rooms.
There was kind but insufficient personnel at the concierge (especially at checkout time), and some of the waiting staff in the breakfast room was indolent and distracted. Breakfast was good except for coffee.
Overall, it was not good value for money.

Excellent Choice for a Hotel in Barcelona. New, trendy, clean and in a very good location, that is perfect to explore this incredible town.
It is also very close to the Metro Station that is also helping.
Rooms are very clean and quiet. I would definitely return to this hotel.

My husband and I stayed at the Vincci Gala for three nights during our say in Barcelona. The hotel was so beautiful! From the minute we walked in we were impressed. The staff was very friendly and helpful with questions we had. The hotel also sold tickets for the city bus tour and other events, making it a lot easier for us.

Our room was even more amazing. Everything was very vibrant and comfortable. Our room had an outdoor deck which was really nice to sit and have a drink at. The room had blackout curtains which was awesome for napping during the day. The bed was super comfortable. I slept like a baby during those three nights. We had no issues with noise at night.

The hotel is located in a great location and close to the city bus tour starting point. We walked everything so it was a great central location for us.

Overall it was a great experience. We defintiely recommend this hotel to others and we would stay here again if we're evere back in Barcelona.

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...
