Discover a luxury hotel on the Mediterranean in one of Europe’s most dynamic cities. A blissful retreat, cultural hub, meeting space and fine dining destination rolled into one. A place where exceptional service comes as standard, and every guest is made to feel part of the family.

Designed by the distinguished architect Bruce Graham of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, the Hotel Arts is part of Barcelona’s recent cultural renaissance, and as modern as the city itself.

Built to coincide with the Olympic Games in 1992, this luxury hotel is a landmark on the Barceloneta boardwalk: 44 stories of blue glass and exposed steel soaring high above the seafront. Inside, hard edges and materials give way to an environment of elegance and refinement, filled with luxurious spaces to explore and discover at your leisure.

The hotel is ideally located on Paseo de Gracia, the main commercial artery of the city, in the heart of modernist Barcelona and opposite Gaudí’s La Pedrera. A few minutes away is Plaza Cataluña and the historic centre of the city, as well as other places of interest that make Barcelona one of Europe’s most attractive and cosmopolitan cities.

The hotel occupies one former nineteenth century palace – Casa Daurella® – which have been expanded and renovated to the highest architectural standards to create a modern, functional and first-class hotel in which art and unique historical elements coexist with the most modern comforts.
