“Perfect location. Perfect hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

If you are coming to Barcelona for the first time ever and want to get the perfect combination of variables, Hotel Claris is it! Beautiful accommodations, utter comfort, pristine levels of cleanliness, sleek design, attentive service, wonderful breakfasts and fantastic location. By arriving at your hotel, you are steps away from reaching modernista heaven: Casa Batllo and the Illa de la Discordia, La Pedrera, Sagrada Familia are all a brief walk away. Steps away from Passeig de Gracia, you never have to schlep your many heavy shopping bags too far away. You can reach La Rambla and El Mercat de la Boqueria in less than 20 minutes walking provided, you don't get distracted by your surroundings and take many detours. The Colombus Monument and Barceloneta are about a 30 minute walk away. There are many great restaurants in the area. There are also a few convenience stores and supermarkets. I cannot think of a better location.

Room Tip: Some rooms have no exterior windows and little natural lighting (Ironically, they often tend to be l...

Our stay at the Claris Hotel in Barcelona was a blessing for first time travelers to Spain. The rooms were elegant, comfortable, unusually roomy--each having its own sitting room. All the appointments were modern and tasteful. The breakfast is the best I have ever experienced at a hotel, and the rooftop restaurant is a good lunch stop and nice way to cap off the evening. The staff at the Claris were patient and very helpful, especially the concierge, Laura, and her assistant. Every recommendation and set of directions they gave to us was spot on and worth the effort and expense. The Hotel Claris is very close to The Rambla and some of the Goudy exhibits, which are fundamental to a visit to Barcelona. When I go back, which will be soon, Hotel Claris will be my first choice.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms are quite nice.

Three nights at Pau Claris, Barcelona, were a wonderful experience. Upon check in, I was ushered to my room, which was one of the "duplex" style, meaning it has an upstairs lounge area with TV, mini bar, couch and chairs. This is a nice touch, especially if you're staying for more than a few nights or one person likes to sleep while the other works or surfs the internet. The bathroom is an absolute haven with all the amenities. Similarly, there is a very useful closet with hangars and drawers (as well as a safe) in which you can keep your clothing organized for longer stays. Staff are gracious, helpful, prompt, and capable. My laundry was returned early, magnificently presented in a lovely basket. What a wonderful touch! On the roof, you'll find a swimming pool to relax and cool off as well as a bar, gym, and meeting rooms. The location was in the center of an upscale neighborhood with all the shopping/dining options you could hope for. Since I like to walk cities, I ventured easily to the old town and the Sagrada Familia. Again, the staff are great! I will upload photos with this review to show the clever design and amenities of this hotel.

We couldn't have asked for a nicer experience on our recent stay in Barcelona. We ended up at the Claris both before and after a biking trip and enjoyed the comfortable room, helpful staff, fun terrace bar, and full breakfast. Even though the hotel is located only a block from Passage de Gracia, our room was quiet and the room darkening shades really helped to be able to sleep. We were even able to get into our room early on one of our stays. Laura and Mariane at the concierge desk were extremely helpful with dinner reservations and our visit to the Segrada Familia. Alex at the front desk was very responsive to any requests. Would definitely recommend for a centrally located stay away from the craziness down near the waterfront.

Perfect position close to passage de Gracia and all the shopping and eateries you could want.
Staff were very professional, friendly and helpful, big thank you to cleaning staff who kept the room No310 immaculate, plenty of clean sheets towels etc and also kept the hotel itself looking great, they work very hard.
Rooms were very smart and bed was large, comfortable and a delight to sleep in after a long day walking round the city.
Roof terrace, polite and courteous staff, nice seating various types, sofas etc, nice pool for a swim or just keeping cool in the sun, drinks and food available, just ask.
Our room overlooked the busy intersection but i must say that with the soundproofing on the window we did not hear a thing at night, so don"t worry just enjoy the view.
On the picky side, the shower was great but complicated to use at first, would be a problem if elderly, no kettle etc for an early or late night drink and air con could be a bit cooler as would be stuffy in mid summer.
We enjoyed our stay of four days at the hotel and would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to our friends and would like to take the opportunity to thank all the staff concerned for making our short stay an enjoyable one.

Room Tip: If you have any special requirements , inform the staff and i am sure they will sort it out, apart f...

Just some 100 meters from Pg de Gracia. You can easily access the main shopping sites and the Metro. Bus 24 goes directly to Parc Guell which is just 200-300 meters away from hotel.
Decoration is new and modern. Electronic Curtain gives us an exellent sleeping experience!
Very nice staff and we really enjoy the stay.

The Claris is part of the Derby boutique hotel group. It's centrally located, has beautifully appointed rooms, bars on ground and roof (pool) level, and all the amenities we look for. Most importantly, the entire staff was wonderful and helpful in every way.
