“Great location, fine hotel, modern design”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our two-week trip to Spain. We picked this hotel, part of the Derby chain, because of the great experience we had at the beginning of the trip staying at the Urban Hotel in Madrid. This hotel is very similar in experience, very modern, Egyptian art, rooftop deck. It is in an excellent location one block from the Passeig de Gracia and walking distance of the Rambla, the Gaudi houses, and the fancy shopping, etc. We stayed the first night in an executive room on the fifth floor facing the front of the building and asked to be switched to the courtyard side because of the traffic noises starting at seven am. They accommodated us and we slept very soundly for the next two nights! We very much liked this hotel, but I found a few things in the room didn't live up to the five star experience, such as sluggish sink and bathtub drains, burnt out lighbulb, housekeeping which didnt change the dirty glasses. Minor things but for the price, you expect more. On the upside, we really like the Derby hotel experience so would highly recommend.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, choose the courtyard facing rooms but you won't get a view of the st...

Downsides: Walls are thin, duplex apartments bizarrely have only the lounge upstairs, service at the roof-top bar is nonexistent.
Positives: clean rooms, the best location in Barcelona, friendly staff.

We had a lovely 3 day stay in Barcelona at this trendy hotel. It is within walking distance of all the Gaudi attractions, Picasso museum, shopping district, Gothic Quarter and La Rumbla. Our room was across from the Egyption museum on the first floor - interesting. The daily included breakfast was very good and satisfying. The staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 121 is a spacious Jr Suite. Very spacious, quiet and comfortable

This hotel is a lovely hotel, one that will make art lovers' hearts melt! There are original art pieces all over the lobby and in the rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless and quiet. The window shades at night drown out all light, we slept like the dead! The location was part of this great package! We were just a short walk from two of the main streets in Barcelona (Gracia and La Rambla). We had a high quality experience, but didn't pay the kind of rates you would pay on Gracia. Plus, the comfortable and attractive roof top bar and terrace gave us a great place to view the fireworks down by the port during St. Merce's festival. I highly recommend this property!

After a 10 day cruise of the Mediterranean, what a charming hotel by which to have been greeted. Beautiful rooftop with a pool, restaurant, and private dining. Friendly staff, complimentary business center, and cocktail lounge on the ground floor. HIghly recommend.

A five star hotel with five star service in the heart of Barcelona city centre. We were not disappointed with the Claris and would recommend to all. The rooms were well equipped and very tastefully decorated and the roof top restaurant and pool are a delight. Don't forget to book asap if you want to dine at the roof top restaurant as it is small and fills up very quickly. Food was excellent. Overall no complaints at all and would highly recommend.

Everything was impeccable. The surrounding neighborhood was very safe. There is a fantastic pool on the roof. This is a great way to unwind after enjoying the city. The rooms were spacious and beautiful. We were there during a heatwave but the air conditioning was excellent. They had the room ready when we arrived so we could sleep off the jet lag. The staff was friendly.
