Claris Hotel & Spa GL
Hotel Claris is a five-star Grand Luxe hotel located in Barcelona’s central Eixample neighborhood, just steps away from Passeig de Gràcia, a street that boasts the city’s most famous shops. Its enviable location puts the city’s biggest tourist attractions within guests’ reach, including the works of famous Modernist architect Antoni Gaudí. Occupying the Palau Vedruna, a former palace that dates back to the nineteenth century, the building was remodeled in 1992 to adapt it to its new use as a hotel. The Hotel Claris currently has 124 newly-renovated rooms and exclusive suites, meeting rooms, venues for special functions, outdoor swimming pool, solarium, gym, cocktail bar and gourmet restaurant, with a spectacular terrace that gives visitors one-of-a-kind views of the city.The impressive artwork collection displayed in each of the rooms is proof of the hotel’s close link with art; each room is decorated with one-of-a-kind pieces that create unique spaces that combine luxury and comfort. But the hotel’s most-valued collection is undoubtedly its Pre Columbian art, showcased at the hotel’s first-floor museum.
