Barcelona: successful renovation for the Gallery Hotel
Magnificently located in the heart of the Catalonian metropolis, close to the Plaça Catalunya, the Passeig de Gràcia and just a stone’s throw from the Pedrera, the Gallery Hotel – which opened in 1991 – has practically completed its total transformation: the final two floors will be finished by February 2016. But, make no mistake that there will be no renovations during the summer months! This four-star hotel has also been bestowed distinction as a superior four-star establishment. It comprises of 110 bedrooms ranging from 16m2 to 5 suites at 45m2. Our favourites are the deluxe rooms, which are divided into two separate areas: contemporary style bedroom and living room covering 37m2. A sports complex and sauna are also available at the hotel. And what makes this place special? The Top, which opened in July 2013. This rooftop space, with a swimming pool, sunny terrace and second restaurant offers a sublime view over the city. The hotel restaurant “El Café del Gallery” boasts a varied menu and an intimate terrace next to the Jardins del Palau Robert. Take note: The Gallery Space, a café-bar that looks onto the street, has its own menu: breakfast, tapas and an express menu.
