We had pleasurable 4 days in this beach front hotel.
Check-in was very smooth and quick. The room was ready and par to our expectations. The airport is not far from the city which is a positive, but if you hate traffic you should check local jam times. The welcoming desk was very war and assisting.
The Hotel & Location:
The hotel is closer to the more gentrified beach area of the city and rather calm compared to the old city. If you are into beach walks, beach sports this is the place to stay. But Barcelona is very compact (compared to Istanbul, where I live) and a ride is generally nice and not so expensive. We figured that with two kids taking a taxi is not so much more expensive than buying tickets for the tourist buses. The tourist buses, with its many stops and covering routes can turn to long waits till you get a spot for you and your stroller.
The hotel is very clean and the room spacious and luminous. We had great sleeps. The nearby beach can be a scene for local amusement and entertainment events.
With a short walk you are in the Parc de Ciutadella, which is amazing for nature breaks and a Zoo which turns into a fun time for children.
The location is not directly in the centre, but it did not bother us. Because we tended to spend more in the city centre, was a good break from all the hassle.
The breakfasts were wonderful and very refreshing. They were very helpful with the needs for children. The option to eat in the garden or indoors is also a plus.
The garden is nicely designed with a relaxing warm water pool and a larger pool. We had fun having breakfasts outside with the children getting their steam of in the garden.
We did not make use of the other restaurants as these were not a good option for kids.
However, we ordered some food from the "Bites" restaurant which was quite good.
I have to thank the whole staff as they were always helpful and patient. The concierge was very informative. It is best to make a little bit of homework to narrow down options.
I should think we would return to Hotel Arts again.
