“A great, grand hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

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?

This is a good but expensive hotel. Stayed two times on the clubfloor where service is outstanding and quality of food and wine very good. Lunch and dinner there more or less the same food. Very good gym. Not been to the spa or outside pool área.

Fabulous hotel, staff couldn't do enough for you. Rooms exquisite, we had a stunning view of the harbour and also the city . Excellent location. Stunning poolside area, very relaxing. Only negative is the food and drinks prices - a bit pricey, but as we were eating out this didn't bother us.

I stayed with my wife for 6 nights. The hotel is beautiful, with flowers and other decorative touches everywhere. Meeting rooms and banquet facilities are very nice. I attended three catered events there and the food they served was first class.The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The beds are excellent and come with duvet covers. Bathrooms were ok, with big towels that seemed slightly rough to the touch considering the caliber of the hotel. My wife did enjoy the bathrobe provided. The view we had was superb, on the 21st floor and overlooking the harbor on he right side and city views looking o the left. The picture window has an electric blackout shade that really did the job.There is an espresso coffee machine with free coffee. Be careful though; a tiny bag of plain potato chips was 8 euro; 12 dollars US! Everything on the mini bar was expensive I think a can of Coke is 8 dollars or so. If money in no object then don't worry about it. The rooms have a great stereo, however the flat screen TV seems a bit small for the space. The room was kept impeccably clean, as well as the public areas of the hotel. Service could not be more friendly. Everyone on the internationally diverse staff spoke very fluent English. We were greeted every time we entered the parking areas and lobby, and even when exiting the lobby elevators.
The hotel is a medium walk from Las Ramblas, the Gothic Section, and the cathedral. At the harbor next to the hotel are a number of restaurants and bars. The Metro station is close by as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with city and water views. The center rooms have a more unobstructed view than s...

This is a beautiful hotel in an amazing location. Look to one side at the city, another to the marina and yet another to the beach on the Mediterranean. The service was excellent and the hotel is beautiful everywhere you look. The rooms were really nice and spacious with comfortable beds. I will say, if you are a light sleeper, I would recommend asking for a high floor because the streets get a little loud when the bars and clubs close early in the morning.

This hotel is over the top...the staff are absolutely incredible. I booked the club room...said to myself let me pay the extra, its only for a few nights and treat myself. Well...worth every penny.
You have internet included, breakfast included, drinks, snacks, a lounge- so glad I did that, otherwise, breakfast would have cost a fortune, the internet was about 25 usd a day, etc.
My room was a corner room, all the club rooms are on the high floors so everyone has incredible views, I happen to have gotten very lucky and had a view of the sea as well as Le Segrada Familia. I will be back for more of this ... They have an incredible swimming pool, and the location is wonderful, had been told it is "out of the way"- but we had no problem...walking to Picasso museum, and center of city, the city is not so large! would definitely recommend...kudos to management...your staff is priceless...
