The Flowers at Hotel Arts Barcelona

At 44-storeys high, the Hotel Arts Barcelona is one of the tallest buildings in Barcelona. The hotel is right by the mediterranean shore.

The two tallest buildings in Barcelona: Hotel Arts Barcelona and the MAPFRE building.

The view we had from the room was stunning.

When we first arrived early the morning, our room was not yet ready so the girls spent a good part of the morning enjoying the garden. It also had the spectacular view of Frank Gehry's fish sculpture

The room had enough space for the four of us. 

And as always, I spend the first few minutes taking pictures of all the interior details of the hotel room.

A short taxi ride brought us to the Ramblas and the old town, but we also enjoyed being by the water.

What really caught my attention though, day after day, were the fresh flower arrangements scattered all over the hotel.

We were here only for four nights but the arrangements seemed to be changing often.

Only after we left did I realize that the hotel is quite known for its celebrity florist, the Australian Donna Stain.

Had I been more clued in, I might've had a chat (and a selfie!) with her. I would've also taken pictures of each and every arrangement I saw.

I only took these pictures of the lobby on our last day.

If you happen to stay at the Hotel Arts Barcelona, stop and smell the flowers!

I received a very beautiful surprise today finding your blog and your sweet words regarding the hotel and the flowers I am passionate to display in Hotel Arts. What a shame we didn't manage a chat and a selfie :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your post! I hope our flower paths cross one day soon! Happy travels wherever you go and may flowers be near you always.
Kind regards and ranunculus, Donna

Oh my Donna, what an honor to have you stop by my blog and see my post. I truly loved the flowers and noticed them each time I walked to the elevators. On the last day I'm glad I had a chance to hang out in the lobby and observe the arrangements come together. Please continue to share the beauty of your craft, and bring joy to many! Best regards.
