Spain is a European tourist destination for people who like a little bit of everything. Whether one prefers beautiful beaches, majestic mountains or wild, desertlike landscapes, the Iberian Peninsula can meet any or all of these demands. In addition, if the vacationer is looking for authenticity, tradition and an ancestral “art de vivre”, Spain is still the place to go. It’s the same for visitors interested in long festive evenings in a high tech, modern environment. The Spanish city which embodies all of these aspects the best is Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia. Insolent, dynamic, lively and cosmopolitan are but a few adjectives for this effervescent city in constant motion. Impregnated by the architecture of Gaudi, the city is an original blend of historic and ultra contemporary buildings. This diversity is also reflected in its numerous hotels. Between the boutique hotels which have sprung up in the past ten years and the traditional grand palace hotels, seekers of luxury have no trouble satisfying their desires.
Located in the Villa Olimpico, a relatively new quarter of Barcelona, the Hotel Arts Barcelona is a five star establishment with 482 rooms and suites facing the Mediterranean Sea. The hotel’s very contemporary exterior immediately affirms its deluxe and ultra modern status.
The facilities of the Hotel Arts surpass the imagination. In addition to its bright and spacious rooms and suites, the hotel proposes a privileged access club with its own service loge for guests seeking total privacy. These exclusive 32 rooms and 12 suites complete the hotel’s range of lodgings. But that’s not all. The hotel also proposes 28 150 to 400 square meter apartments where one can take advantage of the hotel’s impeccable service in the comfort of his or her own flat.
And for those who think the Arts is a hotel room factory, it’s important to point out that it possesses an incredible collection of Spanish art. More than a thousand works are displayed in the hotel’s own museum and throughout the entire building, especially in the common areas, thus adding a non-artificial and special touch to the entire hotel.
And since everything is exceptional here, it’s comes as no surprise that the Arts has two restaurants each run by a Michelin guide starred Chef: Arola by Sergi Arola and Enoteca by Paco Perez. Equally impressive new "43 The Spa" which stretches over the 42nd and 43rd floors for a sensual experience as close to the sky as possible. Finally, there are the two outdoor swimming pools one of which is on the terrace facing the sea.
The building was constructed between 1991 and 1992 for the 1992 Olympic Games. Between the hotel and the beaches, there is a monumental sculpture by the famous architect, Franck Gehry entitled, The Fish.
