Hotel Arts Barcelona

Barcelona´s Ritz Carlton on the beach

Hotel Arts Barcelona

A dazzling display of contemporary architecture, Hotel Arts Barcelona (operated by the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company) is renowned the world over for its impeccable service and lavish accommodations, including 28 duplex penthouses. The latter are located on the top floors of the hotel and offer butler service and use of a MINI Cooper. The hotel has also opened an exclusive spa, 43 The Spa, located on the 43rd floor. And, of course, there's more: terraced gardens, an Infinity pool, and a Family pool; a stunning collection of Spanish art; and five restaurants, including the acclaimed two-Michelin-star Enoteca (with a wine cellar topping 700 labels).

Hotel Tip

Hotel Arts Barcelona’s amazing oceanfront location is just minutes away from the Gothic district. Book a room with stunning views of the marina and beaches. –Suzanne Perun Hollywood, Florida

The Hotel Arts Barcelona is staffed by absolutely delightful young people from Holland and other world-wide locations. Shout outs to Noah N. and Ana C. - two especially helpful and friendly staff members! All of the staff create an energetic yet luxurious experience. We splurged on accommodations on the concierge level floor - absolutely worth the extra cost!

We adored the Hotel Arts!! Having just been enthralled by the elegance of the Ritz in London and Madrid, we had high expectations. From the helpful and engaging staff who greeted us to Theo, the consummate Maitre d' at the signature 2-star Michelin restuarant, we received consistent 5 star service. The views, the ambience, the cuisine, the high level of attentiveness spoke to exquisite training and a thoroughly delightful 30th anniversary celebration for us. Either as a stopover for a Mediterranean cruise or an ultimate destination, stay there and soak up the sun and luxury!

Hotel Arts is a wonderful hotel with excellent service. While I loved my stay there, I would probably choose a hotel that is closer to the heart of the city than the beach; but that is merely a preference and should not take away from an excellent experience. I did have an issue with their reservation system as they did not initially acknowledge that I had a Virtuoso reservation. So when you check in, ask them to confirm that you have a reservation through a Virtuoso agent.

Very nice hotel. Location and view are terrific. Check in was a nightmare and air conditioning on that level was not working. The staff did the best they could do serving cold drinks and moving the crowd quickly. The concierge was great and suggested great restaurants for us.

This was our second stay at Hotel Arts. The hotel is beautiful; the suites are beautiful with wonderful ocean views; and the personnel are outstanding. You can see that they are trained to go out of their way to please the guests---thus is especially true of the front desk personnel and the concierge personnel. They have a 3 star Michelin restaurant but unfortunately it was closed during our stay. It is located on the beach which us beautiful. And the cab service is excellent and not expensive to the shopping district and restaurants.

Dirty + Smokey

By: Service123

Reviewed on: 26 Jul 2018

Following an overnight flight from Washington Dulles, we arrived to the Hotel Arts Hotel without a suitable room. The room assigned reeked of smoke, including the elevator hallways. Following a return downstairs to the Lobby, we did ask to speak to a manager on duty as we were told another room was not possible, after inquiring twice to reception. We were told the Hotel was completely full and it was high season. Upon meeting a supervisor of Guest Relations after some time of waiting in the Lobby, we received a room after waiting over 3.75 hours without a readied, clean room. Unacceptable. Hotel Arte has significant issues with smoking and the smell of smoke, in addition to, overall cleanliness. Strands of hair were found in the drawer where the hair dryer was located, in addition to, both closets. Both items were also reported to Reception, without any additional response. This was a highly frustrating and disappointing stay. We will not return and/or recommend.

People claim it’s the best Ritz in the world. I wouldn’t argue. The PH room was incredible, the butler service helping but not intrusive, and the food was outstanding, one of the best breakfast buffets I’ve had. The pool scene was very happening and service was great! Including a foot massage at the pool. Elegant but yet not stuffy.

The stay was ok. The location was great, the views were great and the staff was great. The negatives were that we felt a little anxious with some of the people lingering around the areas outside the hotel. Some of the areas were a bit sketchy. Another problem was the pool is way too small for the number of guests at the hotel. In four days we weren't able to get a chair at either pool. There wasn't any availability which was really frustrating. Lastly, the rooms are not sound proofed and we could hear the people next door very clearly.
