This place is not cheap, but one of the best hotels I have stayed in. This was my second time and I love this hotel. if you get a room on the side that faces the city and are 10 floors up or higher then the views of the city at night are fantastic. Rooms, food and drink are not cheap, so stay in the hotel but eat and drink outside of it.

Room Tip: Get a room on 10th floor or higher that overlooks the city at the back of the hotel, rather than the...

This hotel is designed to hit you with the "wow" factor from the moment you pull into its driveway. It is a beautifully designed property, dramatically set in the Port Olympic area on the Barcelona waterfront. Traveling as a family, we had a pair of connecting rooms with spectacular, sweeping views of the waterfront and city, with very comfortable furnishings and gorgeous bathrooms. The style is a light, casual modern. The staff was extremely friendly and responsive. We ate in three of the hotel's restaurants and our meals were great every time, and the service terrific.

The hotel is set in the middle of several miles of beautiful waterfront that extend north and south (great for running), with plenty of restaurants etc. all along the way in either direction We made extensive use of the ever-present taxis and the subway, which is a reasonably convenient 2-3 block walk from the hotel, to get around the city.

The only mild criticism we would have is that we found the concierge on the couple of times we looked for help to be extremely friendly but not particularly helpful or accurate for us.

Note that the area, which is known to be "touristy", has a number of waterfront bars which run quite late into the evening. Happy revelers pour out of the bars in the early dawn hours to make their way back home. Didn't bother us but it's the flavor of the area.

We would certainly choose to stay here again on a return to Barcelona.

The Hotel Arts /Ritz Carlton was a great choice for us. We are on a 18 day European adventure for or honeymoon and we loved the city of Barcelona and the hotel. The staff went out of their way to welcome us and were very friendly and accommodating. They upgraded us to an amazing 2 story suite with a killer ocean view. I would definitely stay here again upon my return to Barcelona.

This beautiful Barcelona Hotel is located near the beaches of this unique city. Our visit here was only 3 nights, but 3 delightful nights. The area is upscale & is nice for walking around the beach area. The Hop on Hop off bus is just across the street which us easy transportation around the city.

We stayed at the Hotel Arts for a long weekend and were not dissappointed. A truly 5* experience - we felt thoroughly spoilt. The service was excellent from arrival to departure with welcoming and friendly staff at every turn. The rooms were in excellent condition and kitted out with everything you could need. The pool was a real treat complete with waiter service to your sun lounger. Only negative would be that the cost of eating and drinking is very high to the extent that we were put off ordering anything after paying €30 for two beers on the first night. Overall however, a luxurious stay.

Arrived on Good Friday to a very warm welcome at the hotel. Assisted from the main door to the reception for checking in and was offered a drink while we waited. We was given the choice of 2 rooms but neither were ready. We choose a high floor room that was fantastic with a fabulous view of the city. Staff were very helpful and you were given all of the time you needed from them.
