I was a guest at Vincci for six nights and had a good experience during my vacation.
There are five primary attributes for evaluating a hotel: location, cleanliness, room quality, staff, price. Vincci scores well across all.
Location: it's in the middle of the most desirable attractions and is close to the Urquinola metro stop. I appreciated being close to Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas etc- without being directly in the commotion. My room faced Ronda Sant Pere and I was able to keep the windows open every night. And for Crossfitters- you can walk to Reebok Crossfit BCN in 10 minutes.
Cleanliness: 'A' on all fronts.
Room quality: contemporary style consistent with the Dali/artistic design cues. Not a large room but it was comfortable.
Staff: Very helpful staff! Really helped me navigate transportation, general questions and shipping packages home. I really appreciated their focus.
Price: Barcelona is a more expensive city, so I expect room rates for a higher quality to be around 150+ EU.
I did eat breakfast and it was fine... Not sure that I'd want to spend 18.5EU daily, but it's good to know its available.
Very positive experience.
