“Nice and central”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

The hotel is a affordable 5* Hotel in a calm relatively calm street, 150 m from Passeig de Gracia. So really god situated to the centre. Very nice and modern architecture. Excellent quality of beds. Spectacular roof top bar & pool, unfortunately not open when we stayed there. Excellent price/value, esp. for low season period in March.

The hotel is centrally placed allowing visits to most of the tourist sites on foot. It is also well positioned for upmarket shops and first class bars and restaurants. The front of house staff (especially assistant manager Maria) were exceptionally helpful. The bedroom (an executive room) was a little disappointing being quite small, with limited storage facilities and a dangerous step between the seating area and the bed. In summary I would say that its a good base for a visit but is expensive considering the limited amenities and compared with other top end hotels very close by.

This hotel is super quiet and it's in the heart of the city. No traffic noise. Love how the heavy curtains completely block out any outside light so it's easy to get a great night's sleep in the very comfortable bed. The rooms are well appointed and the staff is out-of-their-way helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite and enjoy a two-level loft experience with additional TV and sitting area.

After discussing it for far too long, this month my best friend and I finally booked the stylish city break we had been promising ourselves… to Barcelona. Having lived and worked there in the early 90s I have a love for this cosmopolitan, awe-inspiring, quirky city that is as profound as it is eternal so imagine my sheer delight when she suggested it.

We hopped on the eye-wateringly early, but short, Aer Lingus flight from Dublin and at 10.00am we landed at El Prat airport. While the other passengers were still surveying the arrivals hall for tourist information, we had already taken our seats on the Aerobus for the 5 euro, 30 minute journey right to the heart of Plaça Catalunya.

We had chosen the 5 star Hotel Claris as our base for the weekend and what a base it was… Right in the heart of the Eixample, Claris is a minute’s walk from the luminous Casa Batlló, one of Gaudí’s most recognisable buildings and on the doorstep of some of the best shopping in Barcelona – the wonderful Passeig de Gràcia.

The fairly unique style of the hotel is defined by an eclectic approach to design and, above all, the precious artwork, archaeological finds and ancient rugs found in each room and the lobby.

Our room was light, spacious and made generous use of Brazilian rosewood panelling, which contrasted with the mix of leather, silk and chrome and we even had a Philippe Starck Louis Ghost chair!

The staff are stylish and friendly and every single one we met over the weekend greeted us with a huge smile. Having stayed with my husband on previous occasions I was nervous in case this wouldn't live up to previous experiences - how wrong I was. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Claris and am already planning my next visit... For a city break with your hubby, your BFF or family Hotel Claris certainly ticks all the boxes!

Room Tip: If you can spend a little extra and go for a suite - you will feel like a star!

The Claris is located in Eixample, a very lovely part of Barcelona. It is close to many restaurants within a couple of blocks walk, and is located on an intersection of two reasonably quiet streets. We heard no street noises at all as we were facing the courtyard (which we normally like). The room was plenty big enough, shower was excellent, and furnishings were above average. The only drawback was that the Wi-Fi was a bit weak - they said they'd check it out. It's a bit on the pricey side, but most 5-star hotels in BCN are not cheap. However we found the price to be reasonable for what we got (140 Euros for a very comfortable double).

Room Tip: Take a room facing the courtyard - it's quiet and open to sunlight.

We've been to Barcelona 3 times and stayed at Claris each time. They are tremendously helpful and nice. The rooms are very nice (albeit a bit small - its worth it to book a duplex jr. suite), and the location could not be better. Best of all, they have good specials on room rates and give upgrades and small extras like free cava and wine. This is the best value for a 5 star hotel in Barcelona. However, note that breakfast is not included in the price of the room, and the 20 euro charge per person is not worth it when there are lots of close places that are great for coffee or breakfast for less.

Just returned from our family vacation in Barcelona, Spain, where we stayed at Claris Hotel on Pau Claris. 5 start hotel lives to its rating. Rooms are super comfortable and modern, staff is very helpful. The highlight of the hotel is an outside pool on the roofdeck along with a bar and an excellent restaurant. You can have a swim, then a drink, then dinner, then a cigar and a coffee all outside and in the comfort of your hotel. Location is excellent!
