This five-star heritage hotel in Barcelona’s hip Eixample neighborhood is ideally located for shopping, barhopping and gawping at Gaudí’s masterpieces. Behind the property’s grand honey-colored façade, the marble lobby is decked out with low glass tables and oversize chocolate leather sofas. In the low-lit, midcentury-style guestrooms you’ll find polished wood floors, recessed lighting and pre-Colombian art pieces enclosed in glass cases. The marble-clad bathrooms are equally swank, with large bathtubs and walk-in rainfall showers. Head to the first floor for a peek at the hotel’s own Egyptian art museum, which showcases 70 unique pieces from the owner’s private collection. In the evening take the elevator to La Terraza del Claris, a glass-fronted Mediterranean restaurant with matchless city views. Follow that up with a glass of bubbly by the rooftop pool, or opt for tapas and cocktails at the Andy Warhol–inspired East 47 Bar.
In the Area
The hotel has a prime location in Barcelona’s Eixample neighborhood, just steps from the shopping thoroughfare, Passeig de Gràcia. Nearby you’ll find museums dedicated to such cultural heavy hitters as Antoni Tàpies and Joan Miró, as well as Plaza Catalunya and Barcelona’s lively thoroughfare Las Ramblas. For a shopping fix, you don’t have far to go, either: Luxe boutiques abound in this chic part of town, Chanel and Stella McCartney among them. For some of the best tapas in the city, look no further than the no-frills Catalan restaurant La Esquinica. Choose from chocos (creamy squid rings) llonganissa (spicy sausage) and tigres (stuffed mussels); all are delicious washed down with a glass of local vermouth.
How to Get There
Barcelona feels even better when you stay at claris hotel
we will definitely come back here and hopefully there'll be availability in this hotel
Recently stayed at this wonderful hotel - ideally centrally located just off the main avenues but within 100 metres to avoid the traffic. From the moment we arrived the reception we received from staff was so warm and welcoming. A nice glass of cava was most appreciated, prior to being informed that as our trip was a ‘special occasion’ our accommodation had been upgraded from normal rooms to junior suites! Our rooms were both beautiful, functional and individual with every amenity. Lovely roof top terrace with a small pool, (not appropriate given the time of year), restaurant and bar. From the informative doorman, the reception staff et al - thank you for making our trip so special - can not wait to return.
My wife and I visited for a few days recently for our anniversary, from the moment we arrived (including a complementary upgrade) to the moment we left we received exceptional service. Didn’t use the restaurants but the breakfast was fantastic, the location perfect only bettered by the people who work there. Loved the city and the stay, highly recommended!
We stayed at Claris for a few days and we found it impeccable. From the warm reception to the harmonious spaces, the beautiful rooms. Breakfast was to die for, I’m looking forward to the next stay! The style is unique and combines pre-colombian art with modern furniture.
