The Arts Barcelona hotel is a top-class establishment located in one of the two twin high-rise buildings dominating the new neighbourhood of Port Olympic near the Barceloneta beaches. One of the stylish destinations in Barcelona, with four restaurants, a swimming pool and a spa.
In the South East of Barcelona, on the seafront, in the new Port Olympic neighbourhood, near the Barcelona and Ciutadella parks. The closest underground station is Ciutadella Vila Olimpica (line 4). The sea and several beaches are nearby. Barcelona's airport is 9 mi away. Allow for a 25-minutes journey to and from the hotel.

The Arts Barcelona hotel offers many relaxing activities: besides its spa, it offers free access to its facilities: a beautiful outdoor swimming pool, a sauna, a Turkish bath, and a modern gym. A kids club takes care of your young ones in the summer; a rare service among city hotels.
Built in 1994 but renovated in 2006, the Arts Barcelona hotel has 483 rooms, installed in a small very modern glass sky-scraper on 43 levels and served by spacious elevators. Open throughout the year, it has a full accommodation capacity of 1,000 clients. There is a large, rectangular outdoor swimming pool installed on a large sundeck solarium consisting of a Jacuzzi, stylish beach chairs and sunshades. Supported by 4 wooden girders, large square hammocks await you for a well-deserved nap. As well as the bath towels, apples and bottles of water are generously supplied. You can also walk in the surrounding gardens. Close to the lobby located on the first floor, a cosy lounge with a fireplace arranged with white pebbles offers a friendly and restful atmosphere. The spa is a duplex on the 42nd and the 43rd floors, with an area of 9,687 sq ft, and has 8 rooms for massages and other treatments, a sauna and a Turkish bath.
Spacious (484 sq ft), modern and comfortable, the rooms of the Arts Barcelona hotel are carpeted and decorated simply, without any pictures or embellishments. A doorbell allows your visitors to announce their arrival. They are equipped with two separate beds or a king size bed, a desk, two armchairs, a round coffee table, a satellite plasma TV screen showing 41 channels, a CD player, a radio alarm clock, a free safe with electronic code, an ironing board and an iron, a mini-bar at extra cost (including luxury Hediard products), tea and coffee making facilities (a Nespresso machine, what else?) , discreet individual air-conditioning and mobile telephone with direct access for international calls, without forgetting the Wifi internet connection at extra cost. The windows have double glazing and offer a spectacular panoramic view of Barcelona, especially from the higher floors. However, to avoid any safety issues there is no balcony: It would be a shame to fall from such a height! The lighting is very practical. The marble bathroom is well decorated and immaculately clean. ?It contains a double sink, a bathtub, a separate tropical shower with hydro-massage jets, separate toilet, a magnifying mirror, bathrobes, slippers, a hair-dryer, tissues and elaborate welcome products, offering the Acqua di Parma Italian cosmetic brand.
