Sevilla vs Barcelona Preview | 7th May | Football Hype
Barcelona, Spain, is rich in culture, from its unique Gaudi architecture to its traditional Sardana dancing. Spanish life is a spectacle to behold as it is, but as the region of Catalan is oozing with a modern Spanish flavor all its own, it's only fitting that the flashy Hotel Arts Barcelona is the place to stay to take it all in. Tied with Barcelona's Mapfre Tower, the Hotel Arts Barcelona is the city's tallest building, and while situated alongside both the beach and party-goers attraction, Port Olimpic, it offers some of Barcelona's most prized views -- and not just of the outside! Within the over-forty-story tower are 1,000 original works art to get the right side of brain in gear for enjoying the rest of Barcelona's incredible picturesque showcase. The extraordinary architecture accompanied by an amazing gigantic fish sculpture outside (not to mention that it's a Ritz Carlton ) are enough to entice you into staying there. It was the perfect home-base for Vicky Cristina Barcelona stars Scarlett Johannson, Penelope Cruz and Woody Allen. The stars, however, most likely enjoyed the private, personal concierge experience that the Hotel Arts devotes to its upper floors, which they call "The Club"; an area which doesn't include their exclusive collection of world-class designed apartments. With all of the city's magic, it only makes sense to host one of the world's most magical hotels!
