“Fabulous as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Our third stay at The Arts just confirms how very wonderful the hotel is. We were on the club floor and were coddled and pampered by Maria and the rest of the wonderful, friendly staff. It is our favorite hotel in Barcelona, close enough to the action and all of Barcelona's attractions and museums, a calm oasis with the splendid pool and grounds for relaxation. Looking forward to our next visit.

nicel decorated rooms, fantasitc beds and lots of super friendly staff guarnatee a perfect and relaxted stay at a hot spot of Barcelona. Despite the size of the hotel and the large number of people at the check-in, the staff handled it excellent and with charm. The breakfast buffett is perfect as expected in a 5 star hotel. The pool service is effient and friendly. There is a vibrant night life just next door around the casino and tlots of beach restaurnats and clubs. The only negative point was the high cost of internet access (25 EUR) and it was not even working for several hours. I had a room on the 2nd flor without view which i would have complained if i not just stayed for 2 nights.

Room Tip: Ask your high-rise room!

This was my 2nd stay at the hotel and again I really enjoyed it! The rooms are large and modern and the bathrooms are excellent and clean. The pool area is very good with plenty of staff to keep an eye on the guests ( though must say the pool area could have been bigger as quite busy ). Service is excellent and the location is near the beach and right next to the Casino.

Booked a suite on the 27th floor for a weekend with my partner and we couldn't sleep between 1-5 a.m. because the nightclub noise from the beach was easily heard from our room. Staff was unconcerned about our problem. I will take my 600 euros per night elsewhere next time; I expect better from a Ritz Carlton hotel.

The Arts is an upper end hotel, but the price we got on a weekend stay was equal to that of the Marriott Renaissance in downtown Barcelona. The staff was extremely well trained and genuine in delivering the best service possible. My wife and I had a pleasant conversation with a staff (Julia) at the pool about cheeses of the world, and low and behold she arrived later that evening with a cheese plate on the house! I'll be back to this one.

Very experienced traveler. Usually stay at smaller places, but was with a group that chose Hotel Arts...lucky me!
Although it was indeed large, with numerous restaurants and a bit of walking, everything was perfect. As in perfect. Our suite was stupendous. All of the three restaurants we tried were outstanding. Staff was professional and warm. If it's in your budget, you'll be glad you stayed here!

Room Tip: On the harbor, fantastic beach, fantastic views.

We were treated like royalty here, one of the most spectacular hotels I've ever experienced ! From check in to check out seamless, fine linens, personal escort to your room so they can show you how to operate the entirely remote control room and just the most luxurious everything! Hope To go back someday! The problem is how do you stay anywhere else after this experience?
