The grande dame in luxury: Hotel Arts Barcelona

Looming over the whole of Barcelona with its cool glass facade and steel beams is the uber modern and ultra luxe five-star property that is Hotel Arts Barcelona. Managed by The Ritz-Carlton Company, Hotel Arts is the grande dame of Barcelona and one that luxury seekers should simply not overlook.

Located just steps away from Barcelona’s haven in summertime, Barceloneta Beach, Hotel Arts Barcelona offers sweeping views of the Mediterranean to one side and the bustling metropolis to the other. Upon arrival, it’s clear that Hotel Arts Barcelona prides itself in its impeccable service, with greeters ready to hold the elevator for you and guide you in the right direction. An impressive display of flower arrangements, which are changed out daily, coupled with a strikingly gorgeous chandelier front and center in the lobby, Hotel Arts is none-other than a free-standing piece of art.

With 483 guest rooms, including 32 Club Rooms, 44 Executive Suites and 28 luxurious apartments, accommodations at Hotel Arts are all decadently furnished with dark woods, modern touches and large windows with panoramic vistas. For an unforgettable retreat, the greatest gem is The Club. Club Level accommodations have access to the magnificent El Club, which is warranted by keyed-access only. With five exquisite food and beverage presentations throughout the day, guests can enjoy the privacy of their own lounge with complimentary high-speed internet access, decadent furnishings and plush sofas with access to the friendliest concierge staff around.

Furthering the indulgence that can be had at this luxurious hotel are award-winning restaurants, a Spa by Six Senses, a rooftop pool and a state-of-the-art fitness facility, which all complete this luxurious retreat. Guests should not miss the epicurean delight that is Enoteca, a gastronomic restaurant awarded with one Michelin Star.

Whether you’re mingling amongst elite business travelers or an A-list celeb, Hotel Arts Barcelona will have you feeling nothing but incredibly posh and utterly important.

    Wow this hotel looks amazing, I love Barcelona, it has such a buzz and amazing architecture and galleries. Unfortunately both times I’ve been I stayed in youth hostels- as I probably don’t qualify as a youth now maybe I’ll aim higher next time and put this hotel top if the list!
