I had a mixed purpose stay in Barcelona in May, my wife and I stayed for 9 nights in the Arts hotel which is perfectly located for city tours and great views over the city. Upon checkin we were given a room with separate beds which the team promised to rectify the next day. When we got into our room the room was not clean at all and we complained to the front desk, the lady looking after us was really great and found a solution straight away.

Stayed in club class for three nights and had a fantastic time. Every member of staff was polite, helpful and attentive. The hotel itself is spotless and looks beautiful throughout. The pool area is great and the hammocks in the grass areas are lovely. The food served is of a very high standard and I would recommend the club lounge for service & convenience. Situated towards the Olympic village it is central enough to visit everything in Barcelona with ease. The rooms have amazing views over... Read more

The service in this hotel is absolutely impeccable, beautiful rooms but a bit outdated and a small renovation is surely welcome. The one thing which bothered me immensely was the smell in the room. The previous guest smoked in the room and the smell was barely tolerable. A pity. We mentioned this at the reception desk but no action was undertaken. Here is some room for improvement, but no worries we come back and give it another try.

The Arts is right on the port and has easy access to the main sights of Barcelona. The rooms are nice a spacious. We had a sea view room with multiple windows that gave great views of the sea and the city. I would recommend staying at least 8 floors up. Hotel restaurant food was a bit pricey, even for the area, but tasted very good and service was fine. The staff was from multiple countries and pleasant to talk with.

The Hotel Arts is a beautiful hotel, but I was not thrilled with the location. It is located at the far end of the promenade and beach, but not a lot to do in the area. Everyone working there was absolutely pleasant to everyone, and very helpful. A nice little touch is the free candy in the lobby - small bags and all! Free Cava, too. The hotel is located near a large group of restaurants, and the harbor for some smaller boats. Several of the restaurants were very disappointing, and the horrib... Read more

The hotel is beautiful - crammed with amazing art and wonderfully designed.

Breakfasts are wonderful and the landscaped gardens, terraces and pool areas are very relaxing despite being in the heart of the city. The only thing to watch is the extra charges which were unexpected and annoying. For example, wifi is... Read more

The views from the rooms are spectacular but obviously you don't really spend that much time in your room Anyway. The rest of the hotel is good and nicely decorated. The staff is friendly and the breakfast ok. The real nice thing about this hotel is really the location. Just outside the hotel you have some very nice restaurants and the main attraction of Barcelona are within walking or short taxi ride.

Hotel Arts is a 5 star hotel by Ritz Carlton. The service is impeccable and everyone who works there is a joy to interact with. They never seemed put out with requests and went out of their way to please. The rooms have gorgeous views with huge windows. Walk out to the "Catwalk" /Boardwalk and in either direction and you can get a great run or walk in. Wonderful gym and steam room to enjoy also. Pool area was great too. Just a great time!

I stayed at the Hotel Arts in connection with a business convention. The rooms are very modern and generous in size. The facilities were excellent for what was a 500 people plus meeting. The layout of the hotel is excellent so whilst there was a lot of us there I don't think the other guests who were there for leisure noticed us in any real sense. The location is excellent and you have easy access to lots of cool bars and restaurants.

The Arts is a good property, perfectly located in Barcelona and certainly one of the top hotels in the city. However, there are some shortcomings that make the experience not exactly "five star". ROOMS - The rooms are good, as long as you are on a high floor and ideally facing the sea or the marina. Beware of rooms on lower floors or on the back of the building: soundproofing is decent, but you will get noise. They are well appointed and certainly five star standard.

I remember when this hotel was built, in the late 80s in pre-Olympic Barcelona. It was a different era, and this hotel is still living in it.

The Hotel location and standard is second to none. Located at the beach where all the fun , restaurants ... Etc are . Hotel itself is of highest standard as expected of a Ritz Carlton - anyway if you are paying over 400 Euro per room per night - that's what you expect. The spa is amazing . The only problem was the street noise. We asked for connecting rooms which were on the street side & very very nioisy. At a hotel of this caliber, you'd expect proper insulation but that's not the case.

The service at Hotel Arts in Barcelona was extraordinary. Natalia (Front Desk) and Alex (Manager, Bellman) were immensely courteous and professional for our entire stay. The rooms were very clean and well appointed. The entire pool staff was simply wonderful and very helpful in securing lounge chairs every day for a week no matter what time we arrived! I can't wait to go back! Thanks for a great vacation.

Great hotel .. Pricey but Worth the money... The hotel lacks a disco but just walk outside and it's all there.. Avoid eating in the hotel... Extremely expensive.. Go to the marina across from hotel and will find great restaurants with great prices...check your bill at check out many people in our group had charges they did not incur.. Pool area beautiful but a bit small.. First time in Barcelona and can't wait to go back....

Split level. Reception room on ground floor and... Read more

This may be available from other credit cards as well. As Trip Advisor readers, I would expect that people know about the... Read more
