We were very impressed with the quality and service at the Pestana Arena! We arrived very early and the staff volunteered to watch our luggage while we went out and toured. Once we returned they had the room ready and had already delivered the luggage to the room for us. Everyone was very friendly and the room was very clean... More

The rooms were very clean and very nice, the wifi worked perfectly well aswell. The breakfast could have some more food to pick from but it was still good. The location is close to a metro and a shopping mall which is good.

I recently stayed for 5 nights at the Pestana Arena Barcelona and I can't fault the hotel. It's in a really great location, about 2 minutes walk from the Espanya station and the Arena shopping centre.

We stayed at Pestana Arena Barcelona for 8 nights. This was part of our honeymoon travel (Portugal-Spain). We loved the Pestana: hotel is clean, food is good, great location (close to 2 metro line). Staff did everything they can do to make us happy. We even had a ''Congratulations gift''. What we were looking for! Thanks!

I cannot fault any one of the staff members, from front desk to housekeeping - they were knowledgeable and helpful and always wore smiles. The room was great - powerful shower, amazingly comfortable beds, wide selection of TV channels. Finally, the location was perfect.
