Stayed in May for 5 nights. The location was great, short walk to Placa Espanya, where there is the Arenas shopping mall, metro stop, airport shuttle stop, and the Font Màgica (magic fountain). The hotel room was great, the staff was nice and would print our tickets for us. All in all, we were very pleased with our choice.

A modern, well presented Hotel close to Place d'Espanya & Arenas (shopping centre, restaurants - in an old bullring). Stayed here for 1 week during an exhibition, sadly not at the closer of the 2 Centres or I could have walked, however the cost was really surprising, not hiked up to milk the business travellers. Breakfast is good, plenty of... More

This hotel is less than a ten minute walk from the main station (Sants) and a shorter walk from three metro stops. This means that the main attractions are accessible by metro, but it's a bit of a way from the beach. The king room that I was in had both a bath and a wooden floored shower, a walk... More

Stayed in this hotel at the end of last year. Although having prepaid the room months in advance AND having emailed in a room request (which was replied to), we arrived at the hotel after a long day of travel to be stalled at reception for around 20mins while the receptionist not-so-subtly sent someone else off to check a room,...

When I wrote my last review of a stay in this hotel I said I would not stay there again, but the location is a draw to this hotel. However I must say since my last stay 18 months ago just after the Pestana group had taken over the running of the hotel there has been improvements. The wi fi... More

we loved this hotel, near to everything but it would have beeb nice to be welcomed with a smile & hello. Some for the staff were great, but spoilt by some miserable faces. it may have been a cultural thung

For our very last night in Europe we stayed at the Pestana Arena Barcelona, fabulous choice for the purpose of our stay. We arrived into Barcelona Sants by train and were departing the next day on the aerobus, stop located on Plaza Espanya, both within an easy short walk from the hotel (we travel with packs). The receptionist checking us... More

Reception staff were very helpful. Gave us directions to good cafes etc.. Hotel is clean and modern, rooms are spacious, bathroom is large, with hairdryer and... More

I booked the Arena for my sister-in-law and me as I own a Pestana timeshare in Madeira and also stay in their hotels in Portugal. Our room was upgraded to a lovely one on 7th floor with huge balcony and Jacuzzi. It was wonderful to come back after a busy day to soak outside in the sunshine with a glass... More

Just back home from our first visit to Barcelona and spent 8 nights at this fantastic hotel. We got a room upgrade and had a fab room on the 6th floor, with outside terrace and great views. Room was massive with separate dressing area and walk in wet room. The breakfast was very well stocked and had a great selection... More
