... was wearing flip flops. So they took a cab back so em could change her shoes and realized that they didn't have a key. Things got crazy when none of us could get in touch with them and didn't know that they didn't have a key. Ally Michaela and I got home around 5:30 and they actually figured out how to get in and then got back at like 7. Good thing we had to check out the next day by 11....
Day 6, we shockingly made it outta there by 11 but were in pretty rough shape. ...
... Back to the paella restaurant for dinner and AJG had black rice paella - that's paella coloured with squid's ink - unusual but tasty! On the way back to the hotel, AJG bought a six pack of Steinlager beer for $2.25 - he now wants to emigrate to Spain. Admittedly they were only 200 ml stubbies but that's still about a third of the price of Australian beer - and you can buy a reasonable bottle of red wine for $3!! We really do like Barcelona - it is a nice friendly and relatively cheap ...
... The Sangradia Familiria is the most beautiful building I have ever been inside. Gaudi is unlike any architectural style I have ever seen or could even have imagined.
Flamenco is badass and I am going to bust it out at every opportunity from now on.
I got to throw tomatoes at 25,000 people in the largest food fight in the world and it was like some magical, gleeful hour long messy mosh pit.

... I'd had of it being over-run by ******-up idiots didn't play out. There was an irritating Canadian guy in my dorm who kept bugging people about going out to 'party' but that was the only moronic BS I got subjected to the whole time I was there.
Great city, great people and fantastic visuals from a time when Europeans did things with style. Kinda reminded me of France in a way, which is exactly where I'll be next time you hear from me.
... one of Gaudi’s earliest works, employing many unique features like stables of parabolic arches in the cellar ventilated by street gratings, and a convertible chapel in the huge salon ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Gallery Hotel Barcelona
I had a terrible stay in this hotel, and would never stay at the Gallery again. Initially, they put me in a room on the first (U.S. second) floor, that overlooked the street. Yes, the windows are double-paned, so there is no street noise, but the hotel is located RIGHT ON TOP of one of the busiest Metro stations in Barcelona! It had been a long day, and I wanted to catch a nap before going out. About a minute after I laid down, I could hear and FEEL the metro trains rumble through. At first, I didn't know what that was until it occured again five minutes later, then ten minutes later, then 15 minutes later. I felt like the Joe Pesci character in the movie "My Cousin Vinny" when he wound up booking the cheap motel room right by the train tracks. The Barcelona Metro runs from 5 a.m. to midnight, so you can do the math about how much rest you can get.
Great value for money
In april 2004 we stayed with a group of 12 people in this hotel and enjoyed an excellend service. This modern hotel is quiet, the rooms are clean and friendly and of normal size. It is located very close to the Metro Station Diagonal and just a 5 to 10 minutes walk away from the Placa de Catalunya (down the Passeig del Gracia). There are also many nice coffeshops and restaurants near by.
Stayed here in June in the middle of the heat wave that hit the Med. No problem with AC, worked fine and the stylish rooms are very comfortable, on the small side, but you are in the most vibrant city in Europe, who wants to be in the room? The restaurant and bar had a great buzz, with the terrace for breakfast a big bonus.The staff were very helpful in providing info for restaurants, bars and really recommend a day trip to Sitges, great place!Good service, excellent location (away from over busy Ramblas) and great style!
Excellent 4* hotel to stay!
From Aug. 2 to Aug. 6 2003, we stayed 4 nights in Gallery Hotel. The hotel staff were friendly and helpfull. Our room on the fifth floor was clean, comfortable and quiet. Despite the hot weather outside, airco inside was working very well and silent. The location of this hotel is excellent; metro station "Diagonal" and the famous La Pedrera are just off the corner. Lots of restaurants, shops and facilities (e.g. Avis, AmericanExpress and Tourist Office) are nearby. We definately will stay in Gallery Hotel again, if we are in Barcelona next time.
Great hotel, fab Location
I stayed here at the weeked (28 Feb 03). This is a really well located hotel - right next to the Pedrera, the main tourist office, American Express, a metro stop and loads of fab shops. Placa de la cataluyna and La Rambla are within walking distance and the area has some really good restaurants nearby, such as Tragaluz. The hotel itself is modern clean and quiet. Roomas are average sized but done out in restful neutrals. Windows do not open but air conditioning is fine. Bathrooms are good too but could maybe do with some updating. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is wonderful. Only downside is that we did not get to try the outdoor cafe terrace as it was being renovated. Maybe next time.....
Visited this hotel in February 2003. Staff behind the reception desk was not particularly friendly, in strong contrast to the bellboys who were helpful and polite. Standard rooms are furnished adequately but extremely small (4 x 3 meters), it felt like having to sleep in a closet. Hotel is located in an extremely busy street; you will have to keep the windows firmly closed. At the same time the airco does not have the capacity you would expect (and certainly need at night!). With the windows closed you will hardly hear anything from the sounds in the street. Unfortunately the walls between the rooms seemed to be made of cardboard; we could here our neighbors favorite television programs all night, their coughs, their quarrels, all their moves and sounds. The gym is small, most exercising equipment outdated. The Gallery Hotel is not value for money; I seriously question their 4-star status!
A truly pleasant stay - the hotel staff were pleasant and efficient. the accommmodations were lovely and the price reasonable - highly recommended
