OK this is really a small step up from a budget hotel. The facilities are limited and it's a bit tried here and there. There is also no pool. That said it's in a great location and is a good base for anyone wanting to see the city sights. It's situated right between the two main Metro station 'Stants' and... More

Having stayed at a number of Pestana properties in UK and Portugal, Pestana Arena Barcelona was not a good experience. Lack of basic facilites and staff was my main issue. There is no tea coffee making facilities in rooms, very little or no staff if we wanted room service during the day. All in all a very bleak and dull... More

Quiet centrally located hotel with nice and helpful personnel. My first stay in Barcelona was simply wonderful. The accommodation was wonderful, especially the helpful nature of Ms Johanna made it smooth and easy. Even at the busiest hour she took time to listen and provided tips and advice. The other staffs were also friendly and helpful. The room was clean... More

Stayed at this Hotel as I heard that the Pestana chain had recently opened their first Hotel in Barcelona. Although you can still see that the Hotel is in a brand change moment (it used to belong to the Vincci chain) the infrastructure and service is excellent for a 4 star Hotel. Rooms are spacious, nice bathroom, modern decor. Breakfast... More

This used to be a Vinnci Hotel, but is now part of the Pestana group. I stayed in the Vinnci Maritimo in June and found it far superior to the Arena. The Arena rooms compared are smaller and the lighting is abysmal. The management is questionable as they do not seem to have a hold on what is going on... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We chose it because of their website & the pictures looked good & the write-ups read good. We were disappointed. The service at reception was "just" ok, only helped when asked & had to wait for their service as all 4 of them were busy at computers with no acknowledgement to the client!! The... More

Very clean and convenient hotel. Rooms are a reasonable size and the bathrooms are of a high standard. Lounge area is very comfortable and service was available late. Staff are very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Wifi is good in the lounge but too weak in the room we were in. Another slight negative is that the TV reception... More
