    Our opinion

    Hotel Claris is a modern hotel in the centre of Barcelona with a unique style, having taken inspiration from the numerous pieces of art work which can be found throughout. 

    Hotel description

    Hotel Claris is a stylish five-star hotel housed within a patchwork shell of old and new architecture, located in the Eixample district of Barcelona. Facing the junction between Carrer Pau Claris and Carrer València, the original 20th century palace remains intact, oozing style and glamour. This part of the building serves as foundation for the sleek addition of a modern upwards extension made of glass. Interiors at the luxury hotel are engineered around an indoor patio that resembles a Japanese garden, and guestrooms are accessed off the corridors that wind their way around the interior walls. Contemporary in character, there is a mature sophistication about each of the 124 rooms and suites, which have a masculine air with dark materials. An intriguing feature of the design style at Hotel Claris is the addition of ancient artefacts and cultural artwork in each of the rooms, as well as the 400 items in the Egyptian Museum on the first floor. The hotel also boasts the privilege of outdoor space in the form of a rooftop terrace, where an outdoor pool enjoys lovely views over the rooftops. Here, La Terraza del Claris is open to the elements in summer, protected by awnings in the winter, and offers outstanding scenery and Mediterranean cuisine year-round. Amid the colour and vibrancy of the Warhol-inspired décor, you can also dine on light dishes at East 47 Cocktail and Tapas bar. Just minutes away from attractions like Placa de Catalunya and the the Passeig de Gracia, Hotel Claris is ideally located for a stylish city break at the heart of Barcelona.


    One street back from the buzzing Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona’s Eixample district.
