Forbes review:

“Originally built for the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics, this 44-story steel-and-blue-glass exposed-beam skyscraper designed by Bruce Graham on the Mediterranean has become an icon of the city. The views are stunning, either out to the sea, toward the city or in some cases, both.”

Telegraph review:

“A thoroughly modern-looking five-star hotel positioned right on the beach, the Arts is one of Barcelona’s original luxury hotels. Its traditional attitude makes for excellent service, and its eating and drinking choices are second to none. Public areas are enlivened with original artwork and huge floral displays.”

Amazing staff and location. Iconic property to enjoy and make memories.

Everything. But we were super impressed by the staff. Beautiful people with genuine smiles caring for the guests. We had an accident with our 3 year old son jumping on the bed. Immediately manager and medical staff visited us in the room, providing first aid and arranged the visit to hospital in no time. Our son got well thought gifts on the to the hospital. After coming back we had a clean room with even more gifts. Their composure and professionalism was priceless. Thank you so much. ❤️🙏🏻

Wonderful hotel, shame about the thieves

We had a lovely stay at Hotel Arts. The rooms were spacious and very well equipped and the staff were friendly and helpful. We had our passports stolen in a Starbucks ( a common occurrence it appears) and had to stay an extra night but the hotel found us a room and were very supportive

Great stay in a great location

Very well appointed property in a very good location, without being in a busy city Centre. We were upgraded to a suite and had the most beautiful views. Very comfortable suites.


21 October 2023

Comfortable but too corporate for leisure

Great staff and breakfast

Outdated rooms, uninspiring design, expensive considering what it is and how far it is


11 October 2023

Fantastic stay in an incredible setting.

It’s a great location. You are by the sea you can walk down the boulevard or rent A bike. In no time you are in the heart of the city. During the day there is a shuttle bus taking to plaza cataluña. Very easy. Loved the pools and the hotel facilities.

The breakfast was over priced in my opinion. Some corners of the hotel need refurbishment it’s starting to look a little run down.

A place to return too!!!

Location great and service was exceptional. Except for - Maybe the night staff at the desk at the Marina could show the same friendly attention to all your guests as she showed to your white guests. Breakfast staff was absolutely fantastic - Kartik the waiter and Shayne at the front desk and Alex at the Concierge were all very good.

14 September 2023

We relaxed and chilled after few days of shopping in a very crowded city of Barcelona.

Everything; including the room itself, the room's view, staff, lobby, design, and the details.

Nothing real to highlight.
