The 4-star Gallery Barcelona is a modern hotel in Barcelona's hip city centre, just off the Passeig de Gracia. Exceptionally well located, it's within walking distance of the cathedral, Gaudi's La Pedrera, and the shopping streets near the Plaça Catalunya. Diagonal Metro station is nearby for easy access to the seafront and beach cafés in La Barceloneta.
The efficient staff are fluent in English, making check-in a breeze, and they have won praise from Fodor's for providing "impeccable service". There's a great breakfast spread of hot and cold buffet dishes and the airy El café del Gallery is open all day for light meals, pre-dinner drinks or a shot of caffeine between sightseeing sprees.
Rooms look out over the city's rooftops and are simple but well laid out. Extras such as slippers, combs, perfume and an umbrella are always included (even the in-room hairdryer is unusually good), and some of the Superior Rooms come with handy iPads, pre-loaded with restaurant recommendations and information about local sights. The Wi-Fi is free in every room, although you will need a code from reception to access it.
Make sure you check out the brand-new pool on the terrace. While the pool is open all-year-round, The Top bar -- with views of the city and tapas on the menu -- is closed from 1 November-15 April. There is also a top-floor sauna and gym, with complimentary soft drinks.
