A Weekend in Barcelona

visiting barcelona

Over the last decade I have spent a lot of time in Madrid for a mixture of business and pleasure, however I have rarely visited Barcelona.

My visit in early September was a rare treat to experience my normal Spanish delights and experience a few more on offer in Barcelona. My summary in one line would be, the delights of Spanish life with the benefit of a glorious coast line and Southern European fall weather.

Where to stay

The hotel Arts is part of the Ritz Carlton group  and a must stay. Located on the edge of the beach a short taxi ride from the very center of the city it is the perfect location. You can sip cocktails on the beach, explore the unique architecture by Antoni Gaudi and given the late nature of Spanish culture you can enjoy the Spanish fashion and cuisine during the evening / early morning.

The service, and style of the hotel is exquisite. The rooms are designed with special detail and elegance and the suites offer breath taking views of the ocean and the city.
