We stayed at the Hotel Arts Barcelona, managed by Ritz-Carlton recently for a long weekend and here are some of our impressions of this beautiful property by the sea. Complimented by photos taken during our stay // See the link to our Flickr account below each image.

Great dinner in the hotel // beautiful as always. Only two minor irritations however, luggage at check in was mixed up and we waited a bit longer for delivery and our room was not ready and were shown an unmade room first plus waiting without any time indication when our room will be ready. Having said that, we could enjoy the Club Lounge in the meantime plus we enjoyed the Club Lounge even further after we checked out at 14:00pm, a 2 hour late check-out. This we found world class service, after the luggage slip and room episode we received always top notch service at the Hotel Arts.
