Great location, room adequate but poorly ventilated and despite what the ad on Booking.com implies, no air conditioning - some rooms apparemtly have it, but not the single with shared bathroom. My real complaint though was customer service. This hostal uses a system whereby you receive keys to enter the front door of the building and your room, but must... More

Empty reception. Run out of toilet paper. tried to ring the doorbell to get the reception's attention but it didn't work. One at a time toilet! I been in shared bathrooms before. I imagined a toilet with 2-3 shower rooms and 2-3 toilet and at least 2 people can use it simultaneously. But in this hotel its only one person... More

The bathrooms are shared but are cleaned daily and kept spotless. Our room (triple share) had a lot of space and even a cute balcony. The air conditioner worked great except for making... More

The location can not be beat. The owner is very kind and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Bathrooms, down the hall, were clean and pleasant. Overall, I recommend Pension Aris for travellers on a budget.

Well where do I start! This place was utterly appalling; from the terrible service to the lack of amenities, the whole experience left me angry and disgusted. As a hotel manager myself, I was shocked at the way we were treated as customers. Myself and my friends had been camping the nights previous to arriving in Barcelona and were very... More

Up a shadowy staircase, past a door that says 'criminologie', the heart was beating. Was this the right place? But was it was as the 'Pension' sign appeared on a heavy brown painted door. The owner, a lovely girl, welcomed us and showed the room, which was colourful, clean and with a balcony overlooking the street, high enough on the... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
