I traveled to Barcelona with a friend earlier in August. We had reserved a room at Aranea hotel on our tour manager's advice. She said it was a nice and comfortable place to stay at, and she was right! The hotel is really great! The front desk workers are really nice and friendly people, always willing to help. The room...

The good thing about this hotel is that it is very close to Sagrada Familia so you can go early before it gets too crowded. It is also *relatively* close from the main streets where everything happens. Apart from that it is really an average hotel, not bad but not incredible either. Clean and comfortable but I don't even remember... More

This was a nice hotel. It wasn't anything fancy, but it was clean, spacious for 2 very tall adults, and it had a cafe'. There was a rooftop for lounging and taking in the cityscape. It was also a 10 minute cab ride to La Rambla, which has great restaurants, shopping, and people watching.

The room was clean, the beds comfortable and the bathroom exceeded all expectations. There were even TV channels in different languages. At breakfast the choice was large, so it was definitely worth the money. The desk was always occupied and the staff was friendly and helpful. Also the hotel's location near the Sagrada Familia was perfect for a sightseeing trip.... More

Stayed here the first week of July and was impressed! We were initially disappointed to get one of the rooms with a view of a wall!! Someone has to be in those rooms, but why is it always us?! As it happened it didn't really matter as we were usually in the room when it was dark anyway. The hotel... More
