Perfect location, lots of quality restaurants all within walking distanceComment of F. Warren , United Kingdom the 2014-09-14
Accompanied my husband on a business trip here. Barcelona is wonderful of course. A lovely hotel to stay at. Service wonderful and beautiful ambience. We had a fabulous room with a sea view. Couldn't fault the hotel everything was perfect. If you want to be in the hub of Barcelona a this is a taxi ride away.
I stayed at Hotel Arts in January for a business meeting. The service at check in was excellent and they were offering free champagne for weary travelers. My room was lovely, large and very clean. The hotel is nicely located very near the water/beach although at the time of year I was there, the weather wasn't suited to it. They have very nice food on the premises in their restaurant but I would have liked to have a bit more choice. This is the main reason for the 4-star rating instead of 5.
"Best hotel in Barcelona!"
For sure this is the best luxury hotel in Barcelona.Lovely location in the Port and just 2 min walk from the beach.Downtown(Ramblas and Ps.De Gracia) 10 min ride by taxi. The hotel is a 5 stars luxury and A Ritz Carlton category hotel without any doubts.
"Wonderful Stay, Highly Recommended"
Excellent stay. Beautiful property. Warm & welcoming staff. Spotlessly clean and spacious room. Fluffy robes and slippers provided. Lots of closet space. Black-out shade for window (awesome). One of the best bathrooms I've ever had in a hotel. In addition to the giant tub, there was a large vanity area with 2 sinks and 2 separately enclosed rooms for toilet/bidet and the shower which had 3 shower heads, one a rain-head. I found the bed to be slightly hard, but still comfortable (I prefer the Heavenly-type beds). High-quality bedding and pillows. Location is on the beach, about a 7-10 minute walk along the beach from great shopping and restaurants. My #1 favorite thing was the in-room thermostat. It actually worked at the temperature set and was not limited by the ambient temperature of the hotel at large. Many hotels DO limit the thermostats and I end up sleeping in a pool of sweat because the rooms are too hot at night. This is a big deal to me! The one very minor inconvenience was the fact that they use actual metal keys (not key-cards) but do not provide a fob. I could never find it in my purse.
"Not just luxury - fabulous service as well"
Always important when you celebrate your birthday but the Arts hotel certainly made if very special. From Arrival through to departure the staff could not do enough - Alex in the Club lounge and team were superb as were the Concierge staff at the door who even organised some Cava for the room as a special treat. The room was stunning with the most wonderful views of the coast and the City. Definitely one of the best stays for the Birthday and all due to a wonderful team of people
