“Beautiful hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

Great location in the Port. Best rooms are on the highest floors with ocean views. They always seem to be sold out so I am never able to get the Platinum Amex upgrade here. Try to get a high floor corner room - those are amazing. Avoid rooms close to the ice machines which are noisy. Best for the young and hip

Room Tip: Ask for high floor - avoid room by ice machine

I and some Japanese clients arrived at the Club Level to check in and were greeted with a tray with refreshing cocktails. We shown our rooms and the Japanese chairman was kindly upgraded to a one bedroom duplex suite. The chairman was horrified with all glass suite that would have been a perfect backdrop for a Hollywood couple as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, elegant and modern. He asked to change hotels immediately. The Club concierge was dumbfounded as I was but I understood that from an earthquake proun nation, some Japanese emotionally feel frightened and insecure in an top floor all glass highrise, in a loft like suite with floor to ceiling glass walls and a sweeping staircase to an all glass bedroom. I quietly explained this to the concierge and he and I quickly inspected other rooms and I settled on an ordinary standard room where solid walls predominated and gave the chairman a secure feeling. The concierge was gracious, efficient, and professionally in control thoughout this spiraling disaster to a perfect solution. The Arts Hotel Barcelona has class. The tranquil Club Lounge with great sea views was well stocked at all times of the day, breakfast, lunch, and dinner with great delicacies and food with a wide selection of the best Spanish wines. It was so pleasant a stay that the Japanese chairman wanted to extend his stay. The professionalism of the concierge and staff of this great hotel saved my position.

The Arts Barcelona is a fantastic hotel. It is hip and fashionable. The location is great! If planning a cruise, the Arts is an excellent place to do a few pre and post nights. Even if you are not cruising, you are walking distance to the pier. lots of happenings there.
And the food..OMG.....there is a eating venue to meet every palate! A must if visitng Barcelona!

The hotel is fantastic. The views are spectacular. I personally like the city view better than the ocean view, especially at night. Service is top notch. Gym good. If you stay in a suite be informed the lighting does not work separately, so if one person wants to read or watch tv in the sitting room you cannot do this with the fancy lighting system they have installed - or at least that was the way it was in our room, #3207. Every hotel should have free Internet - they charge $25

The Club-rooms are amazing. Loved the room, the bed and excellent housekeeping-service!
The breakfast, lunch and lovely sweet snacks in the Club were delicious! Only one thing we didn't liked so much were the movies played on the Club-TV ;-). Maybe a dvd of Planet Earth will do better! Above all, it was perfect!

We stayed at the Hotel Arts. Our room was beautiful, the staff incredibly helpful and kind and the concierge desk set up everything we needed. We got a private tour guide set up by the concierge desk and it was wonderful. We would absolutely come back and stay again!

Gorgeous! Beautiful hotel, excellent service, spectacular pool, great location. LOVED IT! Avoid the touristy boardwalk and take a taxi into town. The concierges gave us excellent recommendations and there is a hop-on/hop-off bus stop a block away (sooooo touristy, but well worth it if you want to see the sites of Barcelona and get a cheap ride around town). Five Stars!
