If you are looking for style, beach location, and a guaranteed peaceful nights sleep Hotel Arts Barcelona is an excellent choice especially if you can afford the room rates! You will benefit from a modern hotel with rooms of a high standard. You can also be rest assured that the Barcelona Arts Hotel is worthy of its 5 star Luxury hotel rating – something that cannot be said about some other 5 star hotels in Barcelona.
If you are coming to Barcelona on a special occasion like a wedding anniversary or honeymoon then the Arts hotel is ideally located in one of the most romantic areas of Barcelona (after the Cathedral area -the top romance spot). You can walk along the sea front promenade at night with soft lights, palm trees, and the sound of the sea washing up on the sand.
In summary, if you choose to stay at the Hotel Arts you will benefit from a modern hotel worthy of the 5 Star luxury rating, in a quiet location of Barcelona near the beaches and marina area.
The first is of Barceloneta beach if you are at the front or the left side of the hotel as you look at the hotel from the picture at the top of this page (Hotel Arts is the building on the left side in the picture above).
Situated in the marina area of Port Olimpico the Hotel Arts is only a few minutes walk from the beach.
The hotel location, although in the city center, is not in the very heart of the city center. For many this is not a problem as the metro is only 5 minutes walk away and you are only 4 stops (10 minutes journey by metro) to Passeig de Gràcia and the very center of Barcelona. If you want to walk along the beach to the city center you have about a 30 minutes walk, or a 10 minute journey by taxi (Approximately €5.00).
Some people prefer their hotel to be situated only minutes walk away from where all the action is. If that is what you want you may need to consider another hotel closer to the Ramblas or Plaça de Catalunya instead.
There are advantages to Hotel Arts Barcelona location apart from the beach and marina being close by. You will have a quiet room which means a peaceful night’s sleep. Before I moved to Barcelona I came here on holiday at least once per year for the past 10 years (I usually have 2 holidays per year so I always went somewhere else for the second break). As a result of those visits I stayed in hotels in many locations in Barcelona city centre. I can tell you that the very heart of the city center is noisy – especially at night when the city comes alive. If you want to be guaranteed of a quiet night’s sleep without noise from the street it’s recommended you stay in a hotel outside of the very center or at least away from busy roads. In which case the Arts hotel Barcelona is in a perfect location.
Many internet hotel reservation sites claim that city centre hotels are soundproofed however from my experience this is not always the caseand you will have to take what they say with a pinch of salt. By choosing a hotel away from all the hustle and bustle you can be sure of a quiet night’s sleep.
