The hotel itself is faboulous. Interesting architecture and probably the best hotel in Barcelona. Having said that, it is a bit out of the way as it is located near the Olympic pier and is not close to anything. In order to get to the Ramblas or the shopping district, you will need to take a cab or bus. The pool has to be the best in Barcelona.

Hi
I stayed at Hotel Arts in Barcelona last year and loved it.
The location is a looong walk to Ramblas, but I liked being away from the maddening crowds. We took a $4.00 cab ride most of the time.
The Hotel itself is one of the most beautiful I have stayed at. Even if you don't stay, it is worth a trip to see the beautiful floral arrangements in the lobby, bar and restaurants.
They have a great tapas bar in the hotel. I loved the pool(except for a few unruley children). but that can happen anywhere. The restaurant poolside was great. We enjoyed the food there very much.
I would stay again in a NY minute.

Excellent rooms and service, I think it was ranked between the best 10 hotels in Europe 2 years ago. As mentioned in previous messages, is not close to ramblas or Passeig de Gracia (shopping street) but it's next to the Marina where there are a lot of clubs, bars and resturants. The resturant within the hotel is very good.
