Claris Review

Acclaimed as one of Barcelona's best hotels, the Claris is a mélange of design and tradition, as is evident from the building itself: a late-20th-century glass-and-steel upper annex that seems to have sprouted from the stone and concrete 19th-century town house below. Rooms come in 60 different modern layouts, some with restored 18th-century English furniture and some with contemporary furnishings from Barcelona's playful legion of designers. Lavishly endowed with wood and marble, the hotel also has a Japanese water garden, a rooftop cocktail terrace and pool, and an Andy Warhol-esque first-rate restaurant, East 47.

    Great Location, Breakfast and Room Size

    We spent 7 nights at the Hotel Claris and we were very satisfied with the Hotel's location, breakfast buffet and room. We originally had booked the junior suite with a view, however, when we arrived we were informed that the junior suites do not have a view of the city and after seeing the tiny bedroom of the junior suite we opted to go with the standard room. Our room was a corner room with a great view. The maid service was adequate they do not like to dust, however, the bedding was always fresh. Definitely, book online and get the breakfast buffet. The Claris is in an excellent location. Enjoy your stay, we did.

    Could not fit our suitcases in the Claris' "Junior Suite". When we questioned management on the size of the suite, they said, "space in the heart of Barcelona is at a premium". We caught on after three different people used the same sentence. The free bottle of wine did not do it. NEVER AGAIN.

    Lovely hotel in excellent location

    We stayed at the Claris for 2 nights recently and found it quite nice. Our room was comfortable and well-equipped. We were given a mini-bottle of wine as a welcome gift. The staff was very professional and helpful. The location is great for upscale shopping and seeing the Gaudi buildings plus it's a pleasant 10-15 minute walk to La Ramblas.
