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 walking distance, including some of the greatest works of the famous Barcelona Modernist architect Antoni Gaudí.
Occupying the Palau Vedruna, a former palace that dates back to the twentieth century, the building was remodeled in 1992 to adapt it to its new use as a hotel. The 124 newly-renovated rooms and exclusive suites are smart and soundproofed featuring stylish décor and hand-made furniture. Each one comes with LCD satellite TV, sofa and pieces of Roman, Egyptian and Hindu artwork.
The hotel also benefits from meeting rooms, venues for special functions, an outdoor swimming pool, solarium, gym, sauna, cocktail bar and gourmet restaurant, with a spectacular terrace that gives visitors a one-of-a-kind view of Barcelona.
The hotel’s Terrace Restaurant (“La Terraza del Claris“) is located next to the swimming pool on the hotel’s rooftop terrace and serves gourmet Mediterranean food overlooking the characteristic rooftops of the Eixample quarter. Signature cuisine with a variety of set menu and a la carte options are available. Located on the ground floor of the Hotel Claris there is also a cocktail and tapas bar serving snacks and drinks.
HOTEL CLARIS GRAND LUXE is just 5 minutes’ walk from Gaudí’s Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. The Ramblas is around 10 minutes’ walk away.

The Eixample, which in recognition of its status as the newer part of the Barcelona translates as “extension”, is a large area to the north of Plaça Catalunya spreading out from left to right of Passeig de Gràcia.
This area is indeed an extension to Barcelona, benefiting immensely from the ingenious urban planning of Catalan engineer Cerdes in the 1850s. Having a love for straight lines, Cerdes designed the whole area to be set out in a grid with each block having an inner courtyard. This results in an almost perfect urban layour making it is hard to get lost in and easy to find places.
More recently the Eixample is now famous for being the area to the majority of Barcelona’s art nouveau masterpieces, as well as a high-class residential and shopping area.
Passeig de Gràcia is the heart of Eixample and the line that cuts the area into two from “Eixample left” and “Eixample right”. The right beign the older side with the more impressive architecture. Here you will find most of Barcelona’s international designer shops such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton. Also along this road are two of Gaudí’s characteristically dreamlike buildings: La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.
There are plenty of fascinating art galleries in this area of the city and if art is your thing be sure to check out the Fundacion Antoni Tapies, just off Passeig de Gràcia which has a permanent collection of the Catalan artist’s work.
Whilst being a safe, residential part of Barcelona the Eixample also offers a vibrant nightlife and thriving café culture. Eixample is one of the most beautiful areas of Barcelona to wander, absorbing the fabulous architecture and then stop to observe the people from one of the many terrace cafes.
It is in the Eixample that you will find some of the best and also most expensive restaurants in Barcelona. This along with some internationally acclaimed bars such as Dry Martini making the area an extremely luxurious place to spend an evening.
Transportation links in and out of the area are excellent, being serviced by several metro stops, as well as the FGC train. However the area is very central and most other parts of Barcelona are all within walking distance.
