10 minutes from the Sagrada Familia. We also walked to the top of the Ramblas in about 20 minutes. We walked to the beach in about 40 minutes. But it is also close to the metro. Rooms were clean and modern and perfectly adequate. Because it is a little way out from the city centre it is cheaper than most... More

As someone who was not familiar with Barcelona- the major downside to this hotel is that it is far away from the actual "heartbeat of the city". I would not recommend this hotel for any tourist. Yes it is close to Sagrada Familia however that's the only upside to this, and even then its not that close you still have... More

Dear brittany990, Thank you for your very interesting comment, especially on the area where you will find our hotel. It is the first time that this area is described as dangerous by a guest. This area is part of the famous Eixample district, near two main squares of Barcelona, and the Passeig de Sant Joan and Sagrada Familia. It is... More

Hotel Aranea is a great budget hotel that provides fantastic staff and nice rooms. Barcelona is packed with things to do, so we did not experience amenities outside of room and breakfast. The location is 2 blocks from Sagrada Familia (must see) and nearby a metro. There are some brilliant places to eat nearby. The Gothic Quarters is a tad... More

The location is good - Sagrada Familia, metro, supermarket and bakery are near. The hotel is nice, clean, well-equipped, but room and bathroom are small.The beds are so uncomfortable. The staff are friendly.

The Aranea hotel is an okish hotel. The location is quite good (not too far away from the metro) but take your walking shoes if you're not prepared to pay for taxis (although we found the taxis quite reasonable). The hotel itself is very clean. The rooms get cleaned everyday which is always a bonus. The bathrooms are a decent... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
