Fabulous hotel, great location, fantastic staff!
Posted Sep 20, 2016
My wife and I just returned from a wonderful visit to Barcelona and the Hotel Claris was a perfect host in every way! The location, not far from the Gaudi houses and the Sagrada Familia in the upscale Eixample district, is close to everything but slightly away from the craziness of La Rambla and the Gothic quarter. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms were quite comfortable. The rooftop has a spectacular bar and restaurant with an amazing rooftop view and a pool tool!
But the best part of the hotel is the fantastic staff - every person we met greeted us with a smile, switched to perfect English as soon as they realized we were Americans and volunteered to help us with directions, restaurant suggestions and reservations, printing out our tickets, getting stamps for our postcards, etc. We literally leaned on them daily for help, especially getting restaurant reservations - they were amazing!
A fantastic experience and trip and we will return to the Hotel Claris.
