Derby Hotels Collection

Derby Hotels Collection started in Barcelona in 1968 with the opening of Hotel Derby, a real Barcelona icon.

Since then, and led by chairman Jordi Clos, the Collection has grown to include establishments in Barcelona, Madrid, London and Paris.
Why Collection? Because each one of our hotels is unique, different from the rest, a piece of art in our collection.

With an emphasis on quality, service and differentiation, more and more hotels have been added to the collection: the Gran Derby in 1983, the Astoria in 1987, the Balmes in 1989, the Claris in 1992, the Villa Real in 1996, the Urban and The Caesar in 2004, Granados 83 in 2006, the Banke, Suites Avenue in 2009, and Bagués and Arai were open in 2011.

Evolving with the needs of new guests, Derby Hotels Collection presented Barcelona Apartment, adding a new business line to the group.

The project continues with the new generations of Clos family, who share the same passion for art, design and fine hospitality.
