Tired Hotel and Over Priced

Would not recommend Wed, Sep 2, 2015
Decor was very tired and hotel was very run down for a luxury property. Very disappointing. We were moved twice before we were given a nice room. Not what we were expecting.

Great couple escape

Would recommend Thu, Aug 29, 2013
We booked a club room but arrived after the club lounge checkin was closed. This caused a slight delay and we weren't informed about some of the facilities available to us ie free electric car hire. Apart from that the stay was fantastic.

No regrets!

Would recommend Thu, Apr 25, 2013
My fiancee and I enjoyed a corner sea view suite on the 21st floor. The view of the marina and Mediterranean Sea behind was awesome. The staff was always friendly and greeted us by name each time we encountered them. The concierge was helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations. The location was perfect with a promenade in two directions for nice walks along the beach. Room service was punctual ... often ahead of schedule. Electric blinds were nice for sleeping in. Our DVD's and iPods functioned perfectly in their audio/video system. We are already looking forward to another visit.


Visit Gaudi's Sagrada Familia and dine at Restaurante Salamanca if you want the best fresh fish with a short walking distance along the promenade from the Hotel Arts. Rent a car and drive to Cadaques to visit Gaudi's Beachfront house. Reservations to best museums required weeks in advance.

Weekend Spa and Relaxation Trip

Would recommend Mon, Jan 17, 2011
The main reason for the trip is to get spa treatments in the hotel. It was plus having the hotel right next to the beach and port. Nice options next to the hotel for restaurants. The consierge was real helpful with any questions we might have in regards to good within the area to try for whichever evening we wanted to go eat. I love this HOTEL! I can't find anything I would want better. Everything was perfect.

The best concierge service ever

Would recommend Mon, Oct 4, 2010
Hotel location is perfect for those who want to make excursions into town and have nightlife within walking distance. it is 3 minute walk from the beach which is nice and at night is full of clubs that are very busy - we didn't go in - it seemed to be a 20s & 30s scene. Easy to get to town with taxis or the hop on hop off tourist bus. Do not rent a car - it costs 35 euro to park overnight(!!!) and in town there is no parking. It costs less to take taxis everywhere. Concierge service was amazing - they helped us plan our days and dinners. Everything in the hotel is super expensive but i suppose that is to be expected.

Entertainment hint

Merce festival in september well worth it - my teens enjoyed the fire run most of all.

Best hotel in Barcelona

Would recommend Wed, Jan 13, 2010
Hotel Arts is the best hotel in Barcelona. We also stayed at the new W hotel and although it is excellent too, the Arts has the best location. The Arts is close to the Barri Gotic and you can walk. The double decker tourist bus stop is just outside the Arts and we did use on it one day. Staying at the W you will need to taxi it to go somewhere, or take a long walk along the beach to get close to the city. The breakfast buffet at the Arts is one of the best in Spain. For Americans who are used to eating breakfast with eggs and meats etc., instead of the croissant and cortado for 1.5 euro that all the locals have in the morning, it is an unusual surprise for europe. The setting is wonderful and you can eat outside under the shadow of the landmark fish sculpture. We used the concierge at the Arts to hire a car service and were very happy.

Entertainment hint

For a fun time and especially for foodies, take the Cook and Taste class. It is in the Barri Gotic and you get to make a wonderful meal and eat it. We made paella, tortillas (not what you get in a mexican restaurant), gazpacho (again not what you think), and a dessert. You can go shopping for the ingredients at the boqueria on La Rambla before the class or not. The classes are in different languages so book ahead to get the English one.
