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

The hotel room was way larger then Paris and so was the bathroom. I never heard any conversations from other rooms or noise just once the shower next door come on. We were on... More

This was a decent place, nice for if you're on a budget but that's about it. Comfy beds. The downfall of this place is the noise, I was next to the elevator and every time someone opened there door and walked down the hall it sounded like they were walking in your room. The reception people were nice and overall... More

Good clean room. Great brekkie. Shame they couldn't accomodate a slightly early breakfast for the morning we left. Hard ish but comfortable bed. Easy walk to Sagrada and easy walk or metro into the main part of town. Plenty of good food and drink within walking distance.

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.
