Neighborhood
Barrio Gòtico (Barri Gòtic)
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.

We booked a family room at the Aria. It was a wonderful room. There is a small kitchen so you don't have to always eat out. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They gave recommendations for restaurants and night life. This hotel is in the heart of

Excellent if you want to enjoy the Center of Barcelona, with a lot of quality cafe‘s (for breakfast) and restaurants all-around. The room was very beautiful with „tiny balcony“ towards Plaça de George Orwell. The staff was very helpful. I will definitely stay there on my next

Amazing, cozy hotel centrally located with great service. The family room with small kitchenette was perfect for our family of four. We enjoyed looking out from the terrace to Picaso’s former school and walking to many sites and the beach daily.

Our flight arrived in Barcelona around 9:30am- I told the hotel staff we would be arriving early and asked if we could store our bags there until our room was ready. They were so accommodating and actually, our room was ready by the time we finished the check-in process (before 11:00!). I think their actual checkin is at 3:00pm. This hotel has the best customer service, they will take care of you! They also let us stash our bags after check out time until our cruise left. We loved this place!

"Get an apartment with a view of the square to see all the local activities going on."
"We stayed in Room 45, the family room overlooking the front street of the hotel and it was never noisy due to the double glazed doors."
"Room 51: bedroom, living room, two bathrooms, two terraces, two jacuzzis. Rooms facing the place subject to nightlife noise."
"Room 18: Nice layout, Sofa Room 19: Better view (a small plaza), no sofa, just chairs"
"higher up in the building"
