Basic, clean accommodation but very nice and helpful staff. Good location,just round the corner from La Sagria Familia and a short walk to the old town. Decent breakfast buffet. Left luggage lockers for those leaving later than checkout.

We flew into Barcelona and had two days sightseeing before joining our cruise ship for a 12 night Mediterranean cruise. The package included two nights bed only at The Aranea Hotel. The hotel is pretty basic, part of the Best Hotels group, no frills, no pool, no bar area and only a breakfast restaurant service available. The hotel is modern... More

The hotel is almost in the center of the city. The service was good. The room was cleaned but in the early morning it was possible to hear the vacuum cleaner from nearly rooms! Anyway the price was too high!

If you are looking for a hotel, away form the hustle and bustle of the city center, and need a quiet sleep after doing the tourist thing, this is a great hotel. What it lacks in stars, the staff certainly make up with hospitality and freindly service.

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.
