"September 2014 - Best of the best - Superior Hotel"
Best hotel experience ever in 40 years traveling to Europe and Asia. Rooms, restaurant and bar were super clean, contemporary design and top notch appointments. All staff from front desk, wait staff, bartenders and maids - super friendly and helpful. Hotel was within 1 block of metro stop and 3 blocks from Placa Catalunya - main hub for all hop-on hop-off […] tour buses - bus hub for airports and starting point for La Rambla and Eixample. Lots of restaurants, bars and shopping choices right out the door. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Last minute booking"
It was unplanned but I liked the hotel. Lovely presentation, very new and modern.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Well Located Hotel"
This is a reasonably priced, extremely well located hotel right in the heart of Barcelona. The key thing is this, it has an awesome group of people working at reception - always helpful, always polite and always with a smile. The bellboy was extremely helpful too. The breakfast is excellent as well, and must be noted. The rooms, or at least the room […] we got, was a bit squeezed and the view was not great, but I suppose in the city centre, you are not likely to see more from the balcony than other buildings.... If there is a complaint, it is that the room-maid service was not great. The turnover of sheets/towels, and indifferent arranging of the room was something both I noticed instantly. If the maids who do up the rooms are trained to be as attentive to detail as the reception desk staff are, then this hotel will be a 5/5 - with an overall Excellent rating.

"very new and modern hotel"
You can smell the hotel perfume when you get in. that is very fresh and nice touchGenuine Expedia guest review
Awesome new hotel in great location. Very clean. Close to metro and shopping areas.Genuine Expedia guest review
We chose to stay at the Vincci Gala because of its excellent reviews we found online. This new hotel is well situated, within 2-5 min walk to the Urquinaona metro station and about a 8-10 min walk to the larger Metro hub, Placa de Catalunya (which has a direct line to the Estacio de Sants train station). We stayed in one of the Superior Rooms facing […] the street, and we weren't disturbed by any street noise although some light sleepers may prefer the rooms facing the back (less scenic) courtyard. The in-room safe was large enough to fit a 13" laptop. We didn't try the breakfast options at the hotel, but we did visit the cafe 365 a few doors down the street to have a quick and inexpensive coffee and pastry in the morning. Although there is no business/computer room at the hotel, the free WiFi worked fine, and the front desk staff was happy to print any documents that we emailed to them (e.g., tickets to visit La Sagrada Familia). The front desk staff was also very friendly and welcoming. The hotel was incredibly clean. Our only gripe was that the shower drain did not clear and there were other minor plumbing problems (e.g., a minor water leak from the tile in one of the bathroom walls), but the hotel likely knew about this as they had to shut off the water for a few hours one day during part of our stay. Overall we would easily recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Barcelona, especially for the first time, and we would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, and good product all in all, but.."
The walls between rooms don't isolate noise, you could actually hear the room next to you, even though they weren't shouting....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Still working out the kinks"
Pros: As others have noted, location is great. Near city center and across street from Metro. Staff friendly and helpful. Ultra modern and new. Open only a few months at the time of our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel, great location. Newly remodeled with friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel, excellent location"
The hotel is well located to sights and subway station. Many things are walkable without the noise of touristy La Rambla street. Hotel reception staff is very friendly and willing to help as much as possible. The cleaning staff needs to knock before coming in...twice they just opened the door early morning while we were sleeping or in bathroom. Overall […] the hotel is very modern and clean and I would recommend to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in good location but rooms are not at a"
The noise from the room next to mine - television and converstion - was very, very loud. You could hear everything from the next room. In addition, there was an awful smell in the elevator.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was in a great location. Everything was at a walking distance. The metro was down the block. I can't complain.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Take a travel kettle..."
Great hotel, great location and highly recommended.Loved our room with balcony. Breakfast even though discounted for us was still too expensive - and there are plenty of good coffee shops right outside. Missed in room coffee (and tea) making facilities, which although a very British tradition, and this is after all Barcelona, so would advise a kettle […] and some tea bags if you are so inclined. Otherwise this hotel is just about perfect. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short and nice stay at a modern hotel"
Hotel Location: 15 Euro taxi ride from the airport and it is 10 minute walk to central Barcelona and the hot spots. Being in its own quite area is relaxing with a cash machine, bakery, small grocery store, and other shops within 200 meters walking distance. Check in: It was fast and efficient when I got to it, however try not to arrive at 1200 as that […] is peak check out time so expect queues. I left my bag there and went out for lunch and came back to check in at 1400 which was perfect. Room: This was of medium size and well lit up. Cozy and nice style to create a good vibe. Nice electronic light system to control all settings from bed side. Room Service: Available but did not try. Gym: None. Pool: None Restaurants: Breakfast was good, nice selection of food and not crowded. Check out: very fast and they hailed a taxi for me right away. Overall Summary: Having stayed at different hotels in Barcelona, this is one of the better ones as it is quite new and modern. Will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely boutique hotel"
We stayed 2 nights at the Vincci Gala for our wedding anniversary. It was a perfect location. Only 10 mins walk to Las Ramblas & main shopping areas. Few doors up from the hotel was a lovely little coffee shop selling delicious baguettes & sweet buns! The hotel staff were friendly & helpful. Our room was very clean & the bed was really comfortable. […] I would highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The front desk staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The hotel and room were both first class. The location was perfect for walking and or catching local transport, or trains down the coast. The only suggestion we would have is to have a a coffee maker in the room. All in all a wonderful experience. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very smart hotel"
Lovely boutique style hotel, easy walking to all main sites and underground station opposite for longer trips. 10 minute walk from main bus station if arriving by coach.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very clean, Lovely hotel, Great location, Rooms are not a bad size ,Breakfast is ok, We spent 4 days there and eat in the bar lounge area very nice Dali inspired, wine was a great price, waiters very good, looked after you. But the reception staff had a funny way of talking to each other when seeing to you at check in or check out we were giving our […] room card and thank you. we have never been to that hotel before so didn't know the lay out. Small thing, but not a cheap hotel expected better Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Stayed 4 nights, had a superior room very comfortable nice sizable, breakfast good selection, easy to travel to all highlights, metro great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Brilliant hotel for sightseeing"
Fantastic hotel, great staff, super location. Breakfast selection is great,really lovely food. Rooms are spacious, clean and stylish, bathrooms are huge and very modern. Only slight issue was the rooms air con not being very good. Staff speak excellent English and are very keen to help. The location is perfect for sightseeing, many things in walking […] distance and the metro just across the street. Free wifi. The bar is very quiet and doesn't stay open really late (I think until 11pm) not really a place to spend the evening but good for a pre going out drink. La rambla is 10min walk away so many resturants and bars to choose from anyway. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Easy connection to airport via Aeorobus"
Fantastic recently opened hotel. Street scene images are old as the traffic has been diverted onto another street. The staff are very good, and helpful, but are unable to make a pot of tea! The hotel does not have a resteraunt for lunches and dinners (apart from a tapas, etc.).Genuine Expedia guest review
Great Hotel, Close to Metro, Close to City Center, 10 Minute walk to Beach Front.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful boutique hotel"
I booked this hotel for 6 friends all in our forties based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. Just the opposite. On arrival the reception staff are extremely welcoming and delightful. Our request for twin beds was met and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel had only been open for 6 months and everything was still new and fresh. It was immaculately […] clean and stylish The hotel bar had lots of different places to sit including a lovely terrace on the first floor. Carlos the bar manager was very helpful and accommodating. Again nothing was too much trouble. Overall a delightful hotel at a very good price and we would all stay there again. Highly recommended. Regarding Barcelona. We all loved it. It has everything. Culture, beach, shops. We were there for 4 days and ran out of time. Would definitely return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel well positioned in the city"
The Vincci Gala was a perfect place to stay for our first visit to this beautiful city. It is modern and well run with friendly and helpful staff. There is a lot that is within walking distance but the transport links are excellent too. Placa Catalunya is only 5-10 minutes walk and there is a metro station even nearer on Placa Urquinaona. The public […] transport system is extremely user friendly and makes the city an easy place to get around. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to where you want to be"
Great location within walking distance from many old town attractions, but far enough from busy or crowded areas. For Europe the room was comfortably large as was the washroom. Helpful, friendly staff. Would definitely stay here next time in Barcelona.Genuine Expedia guest review

Terrific ! Well located in the centre of Barcelona. Great staff. Nice rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just below par for a 4 star"
The staff were great and were as helpful as they could be, but the overall quality of the room and the fact that we were given the last room with two singles means leads me to rate it as average. Our window handle and lock assembly deteriorated on the first day so we couldn't shut the window. A repair was done but this broke again and then tape was […] used to seal it. It was finally fixed for the morning we left! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We find Barcelona a lively place with interesting mix of old and new buildings. Cathedrals and the Sagadra Famillia are amazing and a must see. (Free entry to Cathedrals but charge for Sagadra Famillia which I advised to book tickets on-line to avoid long queues. Hotel will be able to print off tickets for you - enquire at reception) WE felt generally […] its a safe place to wander, there was no threat to our safety whatsoever. Being summer, it doesnt get dark till after 9pm and many shops still open and lots of people about.. I can't vouch if you stay till the wee hours as we are usually back to the hotel by 10pm (yes we are a couple touching 60, but not quite fuddy duddy yet! ha ha) As there are a fair amount of walking, sensible footwear are recommended. All in all, an enjoyable city. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Absolutely Fantastic Hotel"
We couldn't have chosen anywhere better to stay, very well situated, close to all the sights, the port and the beachGenuine Expedia guest review
We really enjoyed staying at Vincci Gala. Vincci Gala is situated in the perfect location, very central, so we could walk everywhere. The hotel is just a few minutes away from Placa de Catalunya, where you can take a bus tour to take you around Barcelona, and busy Les Rambles, 10 minutes walk to El Born with fantastic tapas places and 20 munites to […] the beach. However if you don't fancy walking a tube station is just 2 munites away. The interior of the hotel and rooms are very modern and clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel close to all attractions"
Very nice, stylish clean hotel, very close to all attractions, rooms at the back are nice and quiet with balaconies which is great after long days sightseeing. Staff are courteous and friendly.

[…] Would stay again and recommend to others Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
