Luxurious, small but unique”

Interiors, staff and quality of stay

I really enjoyed by stay at the Claris. Having been at the Mobile World Congress surrounded by 80,000 other people for a week, for my last day and a half in Barcelona I wanted to move somewhere quite, clean and beautiful. The Claris was perfectly located for me; close enough to the centre of town via a 15min walk, and far enough away to be quiet in the evening. Its a stones throw from some of the famous landmarks of the city (again within walking distance - 5-6 blocks to the La Sagrada Familia for example) and its situated at a nice crossroads with plenty of cabs of you need them. The room was large and very clean with lovely, Egyptian-themed fabrics and decorations, including some in glass cases (beware of your kids!). My stay included a complimentary pass to the Egyptian museum across the road (owned by the same group apparently) which was interesting and worthwhile. The staff were very attentive and very conversational without being annoying. The only quibble I had was breakfast - while it was delicious, it was a small buffet with some a la carte choices. I enjoyed it, but I know several of my colleagues would have enjoyed a much bigger spread as they are accustomed to at larger chains. I'll definitely stay again on my next visit to Barcelona. Very happy with my stay there.

Center Stage”

Convenient location, first floor museum, helpful doormen!

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Claris but the overpowering smell of men's cologne in the lobby that was meant to entice was sometimes difficult to endure if one is sensitive to smells. The room was comfortable yet small and the breakfast was good but not great for the price. The staff was helpful, especially the doormen! The amazing artifacts on the first floor are not to be missed and the inclusion of same in the room was a nice touch. The location can't be beat to easily access all of Barcelona.

Tranquility”

The photos doesn't do this hotel any justice. It is very beautiful. The hotel in general smell clean and fresh. Its very quiet. the fitness center is small but trust me, you can burned enough cal's, and the gym has a great view of the city. I had the duplex room when I stayed, I didn't want to leave the room because I was so in love with the room I was given. I never write a review before, but I actually would love to come back to Barcelona because of the hotel. Plus, I still have more exploring to do in Barcelona. I left my glasses there, that was the only sad part, but it was my fault. Beautiful hotel. Don't let any negative comment swayed you from booking. I work in the hotel industry, and when I was reading some of the comments I can tell you that A) People usually don't give the hotel the opportunity to fixed the issues. B) They just didn't get they way. #privileged #Entitlement . I did not get paid to write this review. I just love the hotel.

Nice, cosy hotel with a relaxing layout”

Close to shopping centers/streets, easy to find, good service and near bus/metro stops

i enjoyed my stay at the claris hotel. it's easy to find, has very nice rooms with a lovely, relaxing look and feel to the hotel. the service was excellent, even if the food was slightly expensive. i also thought that the lack of free internet was a con. well, they actually had two computers that you could use to browse the internet for free, but they must be a good six or seven years old because the internet was still dial-up (!). it wasn't a major problem; just a slight inconvenience. the hotel is located in a really nice area, about five minutes walk from the main shopping street, and it is really good value for money.

stylish hotel, conveniently located”

Location

Claris G T is conveniently located just 3 minutes walk from Passeig de Gracia train station, which makes it directly accessible from the airport. The hotel is very stylish, similar to a boutique hotel, with modern art items all around. The rooms are nice and quiet (double glazed). Staff was friendly. The roof top bar is a very pleasant place to chill out on evenings. Overall we liked the place for our short stay (2 nights). Being a well travelled couple for both business and pleasure, we found it a little bit over priced, yet we didn't feel that we were in a 4 stars hotel. May be the standards in Spain / E.U are different from Asia / US.

Beautiful hotel with impeccable service”

Such a beautiful hotel just minutes on foot away from the main thoroughfares of Barcelona. The room we stayed in was beautifully appointed with tasteful sculpture and dark colours. The staff are all very professional and welcoming, from the FOH to the floor staff. Breakfast is delicious, with a good range on the buffet and a selection of cooked-to-order hot dishes. I would definitely stay here again. There's a spa which we didn't get to experience due to a shortage of time.

Fantastic. Lovely breakfast. Expensive if not included, but worth paying as there was lots of choice and was delicious....fills you up for the day! Would definitely visit again. Just around the corner from Chane and other fabulous shops. Great location. Walking distance to segrada familia, catalunya square, las ramblas and gothic quarter. If you prefer to take a taxi it was around €7. There's a stop for open top bus in catalunya square which is approx 8-10 min walk. You get complimentary visit to the Egyptian museum, lots of complimentary items in room (sleep spray, slippers, toiletries, etc. All staff were very helpful. Beds and pillows comfortable. Hotel and breakfast area extremely clean. Nice Egyptian cotton bedding. Barcelona was a great place for families, and this hotel made our stay! We paid approx £250 per night for family executive suite.

The room is great and contains pieces of art / attention to details were appreciated. the bathroom is big and has both shower and bath tub the hotel offers a small pool on top of the building and a bar open until 2am with champagne cup for a relatively cheap price! The hotel is classified as 5* GL however i found maybe a bit high : there are few details still to improve: absence of airport shuttle, only one small defective trash bin for the entire room and a water isolation in the shower cabin that is not perfect and water easily flows onto the toilets room aside.

The photos don't do justice to the attention to detail, the design and the overall finish of this place. It's in a great location too, close to the Gaudi sites like Sagrada Familia (15/20 min walk) and 5 min to Casa Batllo.

This was a wonderful experience. I would definitely recomend it to others. The hotel is trendy and in a great location to have access to everything you want to do in Barcelona.

Great deal on mini-suite, central location

Definitely more of a business-oriented hotel, but that's not to say it lacks character. The staff are helpful for anything you'll ask. There's a small outdoor pool on the roof, and a small gym. The breakfast downstairs is very expensive (~ 20 Euro pp), but you can actually get a great sandwich at the bar on the roof in the morning for a very reasonable price - and the coffee is great. The mini-suite is perfect size for a couple who just want a bit of extra space (with 2 decent-sized couches) to relax. It's more than just a bedroom without being more space than you'd use while sight-seeing. All-in-all, if you get a good deal on it, a great hotel!

Beautiful, creative, modern, and friendly staff

Beautiful boutique hotel with modern and artistic interior decorations. The staff is warm and friendly. The room size is small but adequate, but that is typical of European hotels. There's a large ceiling-to-floor window facing the front street, but it's completely sound proof when closed. The hotel is a little bit removed from the downtown, waterfront area, but it's just 1 block from the main Passeig de Gracia and is easily accessible via the metro. The only downside is that for the price, the breakfast is not included. A great hotel overall.
