"Perfect for pre-cruise stay!"
Perfect for staying in the heart of Barcelona for a few nights. We stayed prior to departing for a cruise for one night. Hotel staff was very accomodating. Room was clean and met our expectations (we typically stay in 4.5 - 5 star hotels). The window shade is a little thin and light comes in fairly easily, but that is just a nit. Tip - highly recommend […] taking the train to the hotel from the airport. I think the cost was six or seven euros and is the most cost effective mode of transportation. The train drops you off one block from the hotel. If you take a cab, you are wasting your money. The hotel is very convenient to La Sagrada and shopping. Highly recommend staying here.

"small room big price"
Very small rooms. Price>>breakfast not includeed %10 VAT = expensiveGenuine Expedia guest review
"Construction noise and indifferent staff."
Paid extra for a 'duplex' room with extra space. Disappointing. Window looked directly in to a brick wall. I asked for a different room and was told nothing better was available...then the construction noise started. I again asked for a new room and was told that noise would stop soon. It stopped 1.5 days later. By then I was tired of asking for new […] room and just gave up. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a good deal sorry"
they offer free internet on the website and its not free only give you 12 hours per stay. Staff very rude. Staff with much attitude told me that they gave me a superior room for more space ( like if they are giving me an upgrade) I booked a superior room, so they are not giving anything extra, I know what I booked...... and Iam not asking then anything, […] just my room. Room not clean ..... nice lobby nice terrace and elevator not working sorry.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beware of the internet quality...."
Good hotel in a good location but... wifi was slow, you could only connect one device and they did not offer a cable connection for internetGenuine Expedia guest review
they were not ready for check in at designated time and you had to wait which it quite tiring when you just fly inGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great getaway hotel"
Most of the staff spoke english and were very helpful in helping us navigate our way around the city. Wonderful pool and very calming enviroment.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great people."
The staff is great, especially Kathy at reception and Adrian at the pool (restaurant). British Airways lost my luggage and she was most helpful. The hotel is perfectly located. The only downside is that they advertised having a gym which really doesn't meet minimum standards: it only has three sets of weights and two antiquated machines in a tiny rooftop […] room to the back.

"Elegance and Comfort in a Convenient Location"
The Hotel Claris is well located and with a friendly and knowledgable staff. We had a wonderful time in Barcelona and rested comfortably every evening in our well-appointed and quiet room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel Claris is centrally located, within walking distance to several sites and public transportation. The hotel and rooms are very clean and pretty. Our room, on an upper floor, was very quiet. The beds were very comfortable. One negative is that the bathtub was not easy for an older guest to get in and out of, and there was a step in our room, […] Otherwise, the room was very nice. The staff at the hotel were very nice and very helpful. Whatever restaurants they recommended were excellent. They also gave us good advice regarding our questions about site seeing. There is a lovely rooftop restaurant and bar. The website did say free wifi, but I was told it was free only for a short time. They did have computers in a room off the lobby available for guests. A friend recommended the Hotel Claris to us, and I would also recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
for a "5" star hotel, ammenities were average at best. Small things like no clock in the room, typical european showers where you need to impleement flood control, you could not easily see the tv from the bed, limited storage space. Nothing overly negativr, but annoying.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Required my memory from VENIS"
it was beautiful .the location was good we had a wonderful breakfast. the shower was very bad luckily we stayed only two nightsGenuine Expedia guest review
"We Like to Walk"
Modern hotel in upscale neighborhood. Close to Ramblas and Casa Mila. We had them valet our car, which was great. The room was very quiet because of an extra set of pocket doors. Although the room was small it was very impressive. It was a shame precious desk space was used for a large artifact display case. Perhaps that could have been on a shelf higher […] up. In all a very enjoyable stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Definitely not a 5 star hotel. However, rooms are very nice - modern decor, very clean, roomy. Can't beat location. I went alone and traveled on foot my entire time there. Saw every major site and the location was great. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worse then a 3 star"
Light in my room kept going out. Asked to change my room and they said sorry we can't. Staff was very rude. I am young and they treated me badly thinking how this kid can afford this hotel. When checking in I didn't have my confirmation printed the desk staff said you might be mistaking this hotel for another one. I went online and pulled the confirmation […] number and he never spoke after. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel- but..."
Everything about the hotel was great, except in getting a taxi to the airport early in the morning. The you guy on duty then called a friend of his with a broken down old taxi. The cab driver gave some money to the guy on staff, then when we got to the airport the taxi driver charged us 10 Euro more than he should have. From the Claris the cab ride […] should be 29 or 30 Euro plus a tip. This guy wanted 42 Euro. I gave him 40- no tip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a bad choice"
The location is great, The staff are friendly & helpful, The rooms & the interior of the hotel are nicely decorated, the bathrooms are modern although my bathroom sink was clogged, The front rooms overlooking the street are noisy but the rooms overlooking the small backyard are quite, the breakfast menu is modest and rather overpriced.Genuine Expedia guest review
I extended my stay in Barcelona and wanted to try another hotel for two nights. This hotel was very fine and I got upgraded to a more spacious room with a very elegant bathroom. The service was accommodating. I would stay here again. Central location. I walked everywhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, but they charge for WIFI"
This hotel is located in the neighborhood of Eixample, a few blocks north of Plaza Catalunya, in the heart of Barcelona. It is an easy walk to Gaudi's Casa Battlo and La Pedrera. It is approximately 10 blocks to Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona's main attraction. It is close to the metro and to Paseo Gracia, a pleasant boulevard with many shops […] and restaurants (mainly tapas). Apparently, the corporation that owns the chain does not realize that being cheapskate and petty in details is extremely bad for its image. Expensive hotels that still charge their guests to use WiFI on common gorunds should get low reviews, regardless everything else they do right. Any 2 star hotel today offers free WIFI, and why not? It costs very little to the hotel to offer a small courtesy to their guests. NOT the Claris!! They charge 15 euros/day for WIFI on the common grounds!!! As if you had not already paid the price of a 5 star hotel to get extra services. There are free computers in the business center, but they are not your computers, so they do no have your stuff stored in them. Breakfast costs 23 Euros. There are restaurants just outside the hotel where you can have a good breakfast for less than half of what the Claris will charge you. Just go across the street.

"Generally good stay"
The location of the hotel was good and the service was excellent. However, we found it to be a little pricey for the room we got.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Over-rated.... Dripping ceilings, poor service."
Was looking forward to this stay as i booked the duplex. The staff checked us in to a normal delux room. Then the staff who was supposed to bring us to our correct room forgot which room and both me and my husband ended up lugging our own lugguages to the new room while the hotel staff "watched and walked" with us. This was totally not what i expected […] from a top class hotel and more so that i booked the higher range of stay offered by the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed the Hotel Claris from the time we arrived to departing! We were greeted at the door with a hello and smile. Everyone was accommodating in every way! Very impressed with staff....... Hotel amenities were excellent. One has to love the location just a 10 minute walk to the gothic area and el born. Which is a must see in Barcelona.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good but didn't live up to it's promises/ratings"
We enjoyed our stay but wouldn't stay again. Had to move rooms 3 times due to some electrical issues in our room. Management handled this fairly well and offered us a suite for our final night (and left us a bottle of Cava), this was a nice touch however even then the aircon and sauna didn't work as the electrics didn't work (fuse tripped and no electrician […] available until the next day). Overall, I wished I had booked another hotel. On the plus side, it's clean, it's central (is a bit noisy), the roof top pool is nice (although ordering anything at the bar will cost you triple). Management did handle our issues well which left me feeling positive overall but the disruption to our trip was annoying. Personally I just felt it wasn't what I would expect from a hotel with this level of star rating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My partner and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Claris and really enjoyed it. The hotel is modern without being souless. The room was a good size and well presented. Just be careful when taking a shower though as we found the shower screen to be inadequate which resulted in a flooded bathroom! The staff were very helpful and nothing was […] too much trouble. The rooftop terrace was lovely. The hotel is situated just 2 minutes from the shops but not too near the main area for it to be noisy. We would definitely choose this hotel again and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others for both comfort and value for money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in every way!"
Room was a duplex suite and was lovely! Bed was really comfortable, had a little chill out area upstairs and the bathroom was beautiful! Wonderful housekeeping service with mints left on your pillow at night. The food on the rooftop terrace was amazing! A must try! I even proposed to my girlfriend up there on the terrace, she said yes :) It's a great […] hotel all around. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The pool area next to the terrace is a great place to relax and soak up that lovely sun aswel! You can see why it's 5stars! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was really easy to find, when we got there really friendly staff up graded our room to there top floor suite. Great recommendations every night and arranged booking in clubs and restaurants. Would definitely come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely little hotel"
We stayed for three days for a romantic city break. Hotel was lovely : big reception /lounge, excellent decor. The roof terrace always had tables for drinks though the loungers by the 'splash' pool were sometimes in short supply. The breakfast had a reasonable rather than amazing choice and the staff seemed to struggle, which may be why they were offering […] it half price €11 if we booked breakfast every day up front. My only complaints were the 'cosy' basic room size (bathroom door virtually converted the whole bathroom) and our room facing the street on the 2nd floor was noisy with traffic all night. They were happy to move us to a quieter internal room on request. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Boutique Hotel"
We arrived on an early morning flight after traveling for 14 hours. We were very pleased to go straight to our room without paying an early arrival fee. The hotel staff were very helpful with all our requests. Room service was prompt and the food was good. My only complaint would be that the breakfast was over priced. Most places don't open before 10am, […] however, there are a few close by the hotel that we found wandering around the day after check-in. The roof top bar is also expensive, but the view & atmosphere is great! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent 5 star experience in Barcelona"
Have only good things to say about the Hotel Claris. Arrived after a tiring trip there to be welcomed warmly and shown personally to our hotel room. We opted for the "loft style" suite; which had 2 levels - bed and bathroom on one and a living area above. Beautifully decorated, fantastic marble bathroom. Only slight negative was the view; or lack thereof. However […] we were out most of the day - and if we wanted a better look at the scenery from the hotel we would go up to the roof top bar and terrace. That in itself deserves a special mention, it was absolutely beautiful! Mostly quiet and serene, however on Thursdays and Fridays a DJ plays which can get a little noisy... All in all though, we had an absolutely fantastic time here. Fantastic location, would highly recommend it and would 100% stay here again when we return to Barcelona!

"Great hotel very close to metro."
The staff are one of the most helpful and friendly I have come across. They made sure my stay was very enjoyable and memorable. The fact I could only say Hello and Thank you in Spanish wasn't a problem. Plenty of information regarding places to go, see and do we're left I'm my room. I was recommended great places to eat out, all I had to do was ask […] and nothing was ever too much trouble. The staff really make this hotel great and made my stay special. I didn't spend too much time in the room so scenic views not a problem. Roof pool gets the thumbs up! Great space to relax and chill before flight home. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely Friendly Hotel In The Heart Of Barcelona"
My wife and myself stayed at the Claris for four nights from 2nd through to the 6th in an executive room no 310. upon arrival you are greeted by a friendly doorman and ushered into a very smart reception area where you are cared for by the smart and professional check in staff. Shown to our room we were given a comprehensive guide to all the features […] this room had to offer which were exactly as described on the literature. Room 310 had a great view out of the window from which you could watch the world go by should you desire. The room itself was spotlessly clean and a credit to the cleaning staff, and more importantly everything was working as it should be. Rooftop area was fantastic for chilling out whether it be swimming in the fantastic roof pool or simply having drinks served by friendly attentive staff. All in all a great place to stay.

"Hotel that pays attention to details."
My wife asked the people at reception to book a restaurant for us so that we could celebrate my birthday. We unexpectedly received a bottle of champagne from the hotel staff.

"Excellent Hotel close to everything"
Me and my son were visiting Barcelona to watch Barcelona V Atletico Madrid. The Hotel is in the Eixample district which is pretty central with the famous Las Ramblas only 15 minute walk away. The hotel was very clean, with beautiful clean cutlines and distinguishing antique style throughout. The staff were extremely friendly and polite. 5*****Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location friendly staff"
The Claris was excellent , located in a perfect location quiet but just next to everywhere we wanted to be and close to loads of great tapas bars, cafes, restaurants. Our duplex suite was a bit light on home comforts such as no music system or coffee maker, but had great bathroom, two big TV's sitting room etc. The roof bar and restaurant are lovely […] and give great views, make excellent cocktails and really enhance your stay.Breakfast was reasonable and made better by attentive and very friendly staff. We would definitely stay again but would request the non duplex suites as split floor is a bit awkward and you don't end up using the 'upstairs' sitting room much as a result. A Nespresso coffee machine would be a good bonus. We enjoyed Josphine's Brasserie directly opposite the hotel for a late night coffee and brandy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
