Getting there: Take the train from terminal two to Passeig de Gràcia. From there, it's a 10-minute walk to the hotel. The journey will take 30 minutes and cost £3. A taxi will take 15 minutes and cost approximately £20. There is no parking on site.
Named after the wife and muse of Salvador Dalí, the Vincci Gala hotel has nods to the modernist painter throughout. The least subtle perhaps are the oversized black-and-white portraits on the walls, but there are also pops of gold, metal and red and the juxtaposition of old and new. Parts of the property are protected and date back to the 19th century, including a white marble staircase and the hotel’s façade.
It's well located in the Eixample district, walking distance from Las Ramblas, the Gothic Quarter and the Picasso Museum. Urquinaona Metro station and Plaça Catalunya Square are also around the corner. The Basilica of the Sagrada Familia and Casa Batlló (Gaudí modernist museum) are 30 minutes on foot or a 15-minute Metro ride.
The hotel sprays its own fragrance (which you can buy) throughout. The bedrooms are slightly more sedate than the modernist public areas but have hardwood floors, free Wi-Fi and most have small terraces. Upgrade to a Superior or Executive Room for more floor space and coffee makers. The bathrooms have frosted glass doors, which may not suit everyone.
There’s a rooftop terrace with shaded seating, and the restaurant serves food, including a varied breakfast buffet, all day. The retro theme continues in the Café Bar, which has a good cocktail list.
