The Hotel Claris, in the heart of Barcelona’s vibrant Eixample quarter, is located in the Vedruna Palace whose preserved façade dates back to 1892. This five star hotel embodies the height of luxury as well as elegant and imposing architecture. An art collection including more than 400 works are displayed throughout the hotel. Egyptian pieces, English antique furniture, Turkish kilims (carpets), Roman statues and mosaics, Guinovart engravings and Indian and Burmese sculptures decorate the immense patio, the indoor garden and the cascading fountain on the ground floor. The 124 rooms and suites, in a more classical style of luxury, also possess original art works which harmonize perfectly with the space’s contemporary design. With its rooftop swimming pool offering guests a magnificent view of Barcelona, the East 47 tapas bar and the La Terraza del Claris restaurant, the Claris is a definite must for visitors in search of relaxation in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city.


The Iberian Peninsula is high on the list of the most frequented European tourist destinations. Thanks to its exceptional climate and varied landscapes, Spain attracts a wide range of visitors. After a deadly civil war which brought the country to its knees and years of dictatorship that followed, the country became an economic model. This vitality is visible in its artistic life with La Movida being the prime example, which began in Madrid and whose standard bearer is the work of filmmaker, Pedro Almodovar. Recent developments have also shaped a colorful and highly attractive image of the Spanish nation in the eyes of the rest of the world. The embodiment of this pop culture which combines culture, tradition and a lust for the future lies in the city of Barcelona, the epicenter of the country’s unbridled creativity. Barcelona seems to contain everything that one loves about the country. Its excess can be seen in the architecture of Antonio Gaudi, who left an indelible mark on the city. The capital of Catalonia is constantly in search of innovation, strong sensations and festivities. It’s no surprise therefore, that the hotel industry has produced some stupefying projects in recent years.

A blend of joyous and aesthetic genres

The Hotel Claris is located in the famous Eixample quarter, the vibrant center of Barcelona, just a few steps from the Passeig de Gràcia, the city’s most important avenue. The hotel’s philosophy is visible immediately by its façade dating back to 1892 when the building was called, the Vedruna Palace, and its lobby which can be seen through an impressive bay window, built with the most contemporary materials. Copper, concrete and iron demonstrate the Claris’ attachment to tradition and its desire to look at the future as openly as possible. This leitmotif can be found in the hotel’s collection of Egyptian art, one of the largest in Spain, with more than 400 statues and paintings. These works are spread throughout the hotel and the rooms, creating a link with history while at the same time blending in perfectly with the building’s contemporary design. It’s not uncommon to find an original Andy Warhol, North African mosaics and marble statues adjacent to leather couches. The lobby is both cozy and arty and a delight for lovers of art and design. The 124 rooms and suites possess a more classical luxury, but it’s important to note that each room is different. Personalization, invention and daring are the watchwords of this constantly surprising hotel. Who would expect a rooftop swimming pool with a magnificent view in the heart of a bustling city? It’s an ideal spot to relax and enjoy the activity of the city from a comfortable distance. The East 47 tapas bar and La Terraza del Claris Restaurant with its own superb view and superb cuisine!

For lovers of ancient Egypt, and lovers in general, the hotel proposes a first or a second honeymoon in the magical atmosphere of the hotel’s Egyptian museum, a truly unique experience.
