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

"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
"Would go back"
The hotel itself is central and looks great and is spotless. Rather expensive and the reception staff are quite ignorant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel .. good central location."
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

"Modern hotel close to everything"
Hotel is very modern and clean but with minimum facilities. Located 5 mins walk from tram stop and 25 mins from the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel = ideal location for a city break"
All the main attractions are walkable from the hotel, plenty of restaurants & bars nearby. Metro very close & easy to use. Hotel staff very helpful & friendly "Spot on"Genuine 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. Tea/coffee facilities would be a plus although there are several cafes very near by. Didn't try the restaurant facilities for breakfast or dinner so can't comment. […] Would stay again and recommend to others Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Amazing, had a great time. Hotel perfectly situated. Reception staff very helpful. Best bed I've ever slept in. Breakfast Buffett superb mostly. Not approached at all by breakfast staff on first dAy so coffee not offered. Overall excellent would stay there again and would recommend this comfortAble hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent and convenient location"
Excellent location; rooms to high standard and facilities are brilliant plus free drink on arrival. Location is very handyGenuine Expedia guest review
Just returned from a 4 day break at the Vincci Gala. It's a lovely hotel, staff were friendly & nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice & of high quality. Rooms very modern, cleaned daily & include a free safe. The only thing missing from the room was tea/coffee making facilities. I feel that's the only negative I'd give […] the hotel, as I did miss not being able to make a coffee before going down to breakfast or last thing at night before bed. They did have a mini bar but you are charged for eating/drinking anything from it. Location was ideal as it's only a 5 minute walk to La Rambla, one of the main streets in Barcelona. I would recommend this hotel & on our next visit to this great City I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"4 night stay"
Couldn't fault it, excellent location, staff couldn't do enough to help (even sorted my error in booking my return airport transfer) hotel itself is lovely, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated throughout. Can't comment on the food as I didn't eat thereGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely Hotel in city centre"
What a lovely hotel was my overall impression. Checking in and out were both really quick and easy. The staff were only too happy to help with recommending places to eat and go outside the hotel (there is a restaurant in the basement floor). The rooms were clean, the bathroom a great size with good water pressure. Air conditioning in the room worked […] well so we never had any issue with hearing traffic from the street as we didn't keep the windows open during the night. I booked the hotel for me and my partner and she absolutely loved it. The sites were all very close by, the small cafe 365 60 seconds from the main entrance was as good as everyone made it out to be. There is really very little to fault them......good job! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous hotel in superb location."
Lovely hotel, friendly staff, close to Metro and walkable to many attractions. We chose not to have breakfast at the hotel and ate at one of the nearby Cafes. The only negative point is that the air con was no cool enough for our liking. Slight road noise at night but only to be expected in a busy city.Genuine Expedia guest review
Vincci Gala is warm and welcoming and has a nice modern look to it. They have an amazing terrace we never got to use because we were too busy seeing Barcelona. Great location, very central, don't hesitate to stay hereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great find in Barca"
We stayed at Vincci Gala for 5 nights, you can tell it's a pretty new hotel-everything is imaculate! The room was cleaned everyday, staff were helpful with directions & bar is fairly priced. The hotel itself is in a great location- walking distance to La Rambla, about 20mins to the beach and 5mins from Placa Catalunya (which is where the bus from the […] airport (€5.90) drops you off). This was our first time in this beautiful city & we will definitely be returning! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel in good location but very inefficient air conditioning system.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel. 3-4 months old. Very pretty and very quiet. The bar was a great place to watch the World Cup!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great Hotel - really modern, clean, comfortable rooms. Rooms were big for european hotels. Try to get one in the back with a balcony - its quiet. Location was perfect too - close to Metro, but most attractions were in walking distance (Picasso Museum, Cathedral and Sagrada Familia) Staff was great, helped us make reservations and printed a few boarding […] passes for us. Would definitely go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed our stay at the Vincci Gala. Hotel and Room were very clean and the staff friendly and very helpful. Most of the staff also spoke very good English. We had a small landing we could sit outside on, however the views are rubbish. Just blocks of flats to look at. Breakfast was of the European breakfast type, but of a very good standard and plenty […] to select from. I would recommend you take your evening meals elsewhere, in or outside one of the many excellent places in Barcelona. The hotel does do food in the evening, but we found that you got more for less elsewhere. All in all a good place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel in great location"
First the hotel is in a great location, about 5 minutes walk from Plaza de Cataluyna and with it the Rambla. The hotel itself is very modern and our room and en-suite bathroom was excellent. The only problem we had was with the air conditioning the first few days but then it sorted itself. What really made the hotel though were the amazing staff who […] went out of their way to provide great service. It was my birthday when we staying there and they gave my friend and I complimentary cava at the bar, sweets and water which was a very lovely gesture. I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially now as I imagine the price will only increase in the next few months! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We found this hotel through other reviews on Expedia and we're not disappointed. As our first trip to Barcelona we were surprised by the excellent location - we walked everywhere and only needed a taxi to the airport. You are within walking distance to everything, Las Ramblas, la Sagrada Familia, the gothic quarter and the beach! It is also quite stylish […] and if you are lucky enough to get a room at the back of the hotel, nice and quiet. Do not bother with the breakfast, there is a lovely pastry shop 1 minute down the road which serves great food - lots of the locals go there so it trusted. We would definitely go back to this hotel, it made our short get away that much more pleasurable. Oh and there is a 24 hour convenience store opposite for anything you may have forgotten.

Great hotel within walking distance of the likes of the Ramblas and the Marina. Staff all speak great english and are very helpful. The room was clean and modern with a big comfy bed.
