"Great hotel for business or pleasure "
We hosted our Global meeting in this hotel. It's one of the most beautiful hotels I've been to. The service is wonderful. The hotel is close to the beach and the view from room is breathtaking. Food is very good. The hotel has a good variety of restaurants. It's within a 10 minute drive from Sagrada Familia. Very nice location. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I do a lot of event planning for our Global meetings and have stayed in many hotels around the world and I have to say that this hotel is excellent in every way. The staff has such attention to detail. Our meetings went smooth with no problem at all. Highly recommended.
Just stayed at this hotel (Ritz Carlton Group) in 11/2016. Here are high points: 1.Location - located near the Port Olympic by the sea, the area called Barceloneta. Several nice seafood restaurants which serve great Paella nearby. You may feel this may not be a center location but Barcelona is fairly small - this is a nice and quite place but also offers good and easy access to tourist attractions. 2. Logistics - subway station is less than 5 min. walk from the hotel. Pretty safe even at night (latest we used was around 9 to 10PM), except for pick pocketers. Taxi fare is very reasonable. It cost us 8 Euro for us to come back from the Sagrada Familia. From the airport, the fare is about 30 to 35 Euro. 3. Room - Stayed at the Club Floor with my husband and my son in a regular room. It was good size with a view of Mar Mediterrani and the Sagrada Familia! Beautiful and nice includes a separate shower and a deep tub. Free wifi included. Once a day cleaning plus a turn down every night. The club floor is 30 to 33 floor. There may be about 10 rooms per floor. The spa is located 43rd floor. 4. Club Lounge - Located on 33rd floor. Exclusive access to people who stay in club floors. Open 7AM to 11PM. Nice atmosphere with a cool jazz. Dedicated concierge team is there to help. They serve almost constantly from breakfast to night time sweets. The item they serves were mostly "cold" foods such as cheese, ham, smoke, salmon, cakes, cookies, vegetable sticks but it was convenient when you do not feel like going out. Just a few steps away from your room, you can have some nice snacks. They also serve wine and liquor. 5. Service - They are VERY nice and really try hard to make you happy! They all speak English. - Thank you for taking good care of us which we were there!! I am very picky when it comes to hotel and usually stay 5 star. I chose this hotel after reading lots of reviews. I am very happy about my decision. Highly recommend this hotel if you visit Barcelona.
"Not a 5 star hotel...more like a 6 STAR HOTEL........Just Amazing !!!!!"
My wife and I have been around the world, gratefully staying at the best hotels and resorts throughout. We decided to give the Hotel Arts (Ritz Carton) a shot and well, we did and are very thrilled about our decision. From the time we arrived the attention to detail and making us feel comfortable was the number one priority for the staff. It was amazing how in tune they were...well orchestrated and just perfect. The club level was one of the best we have experienced and the staff that took care of us there were true professionals with a flare for knowing what you needed before you even knew you needed it. Overall the hotel is one of the most beautiful designed with many beautiful public spaces. The rooms are just beautiful with the best housekeepers anywhere ...our room was spotless and remained that way for the 4 days we were there. When I tell you this is the best overall experience one can have at a hotel...trust me....Location, Service, Design, Common areas, Michelin Starred Restaurant, The staff...from the top to the bottom, Housekeeping, and they real care about you and your hotel experience. THE BEST !!!! Thank you everyone for making our stay the Best experience we have been part of.
"Only heaven can beat this"
Traveling in Europe during Thanksgiving is a great deal. Hotels are empty and there are great travel deals. Arrived at hotel Arts in BCN and was GREETED like royalty. Check in was at club level, very private and posh. Room is incredible and well maintained with partial ocean view and access to The CLUB. The team is super helpful. Very thankful for the experience. Great Job !
We loved the location of this hotel on the waterfront - so nice to be able to run and walk along the water. It is about a mile from the downtown area, and we enjoyed walking, but you should be prepared for a lot of walking or quick taxi rides (taxis are abundant). There were friendly hotel employees EVERYWHERE in the hotel, always willing to answer questions or make recommendations. Excellent exercise room for a hotel, and beautiful conference facilities.
