What do you look for when booking a luxury hotel? Is it the location? Service? Cleanliness and comfort? Or dining options? What if I told you that you can score a hotel room with all of the above, PLUS a stunning view, in downtown Barcelona without breaking the bank? Last month when we were in Barcelona, we had the time of our life at Hotel Arts Barcelona. It has everything we needed for a luxury romantic escape and the staff went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could possibly be! If you’re looking to pamper yourself and your loved one in Barcelona, look no further than Hotel Arts Barcelona!
Discover the Best of Both Worlds at Hotel Arts Barcelona
Ever dreamt of having a relaxing beach holiday and a city break? At Hotel Arts Barcelona, you can truly have the best of both worlds. Soaring high above the Mediterranean seafront in Barcelona’s Olympic Village area, this 5-star luxury hotel is intimately connected to the buzzing city center, yet magically separated due to its beach front setting.
Towering high into the air right next to the iconic Gold Fish Sculpture by Frank Gehry, this Barcelona luxury hotel is a landmark on the city’s skyline. With 44 stories of blue glass and exposed steel, the structure exudes modern elegance. The spacious and contemporary interior does not fail to impress either, not to mention the gorgeous fresh flower displays throughout the property created by the in-house floral designer!
A Room with a View
At Hotel Arts Barcelona, no matter which room you stay in, you will be greeted with a stunning view! The main difference among the different luxury guest rooms is the views. A panoramic landscape of Barcelona city centre or the Mediterranean sea – take your pick!
Once you set foot inside the room, you’ll never want to leave. Featuring large windows and strikingly beautiful views, the bright and spacious room accommodates a functional work desk, sitting area, and a super comfortable king-sized bed to ensure you can get a decent night’s sleep.
Another highlight is the massive bathroom with a double basin countertop (no more fighting over that single sink!), a separate shower and bath tub, and a private toilet. It offers an irresistible invitation to relax and rejuvenate!
Personalized Service at The Club
The service at Hotel Arts Barcelona, especially the concierge, was above and beyond any hotel we had ever stayed. To receive a more personalized service, I would recommend upgrading to the Club. Being a Club Level guest, you will have access to the upper floors and will be pampered with extra attentive service!
As a Club Level guest, Kev and I were treated like celebrities and the exclusive perks and special touches really made our luxury romantic escape even more remarkable:
- a separate reception for check-in and check-out
- private access to the Club Lounge on the 33rd floor
- a dedicated concierge team attending to all our needs during the stay
- 5 delicious complimentary culinary offerings served throughout the day (breakfast, snack, tea time, evening hors d’oeuvres, desserts)
- complimentary Wi-Fi
- 2 complimentary pieces of ironing
With panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea and a quiet atmosphere, the Club Lounge was no doubt our favourite spot to hang out in the hotel!

World-Class Food Experience
No time to grab a bite outside the hotel? No worries. With six restaurants on-site, you have plenty of delicious options to please your palate!
Start your day with a sumptuous breakfast buffet at Café Veranda. In the summer, enjoy outdoor dining and refuel with a refreshing sea-to-table menu selection from Marina. For a quick bite on the go, stop by Bites. The chic restaurant offers a range of light dishes throughout the day. At Arola, Chef Sergi Arola presents creative tapas that pair nicely with the spectacular cocktails mixed by award-winning bartender Diego Baud. Enoteca, a two Michelin-starred restaurant, showcases Chef Paco Perez’s contemporary take on classic Mediterranean cuisine, using fresh local ingredients. The tasting menu is worth the indulgence! Before you call it a day, get whisked away by a handcrafted cocktail at Frank’s.
If you have a sweet tooth, stop by the Rocambolesc stand by the pool. Owned by Jordi Roca, the youngest of the three brothers behind El Celler de Can Roca (the world’s 3rd best restaurants), Rocambolesc’s gelato will have you coming back for more!
True Relaxation at 43 The Spa
A luxury romantic getaway is not complete without a spa treatment. Located on the uppermost floors of Hotel Arts Barcelona, 43 The Spa offers various treatments to restore balance to your body, mind, and soul. We spent a lazy afternoon at the spa unwinding and soothing away all the tensions in the body. The best part was that after the treatment, we were welcomed to use the sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi. The relaxation area even has a terrace with an amazing view!!
If you’re looking to rekindle your romance while in Barcelona, why not book a stay at Hotel Arts Barcelona. With amazing views, fantastic food and top-notch service, your significant other will surely be impressed!
