Hotel Aranea Barcelona

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A nice small hotel in an area of businesses and residential dwellings. An easy walk to the Sagrada Familia. We took a taxi to the Gothic Quarter. Nice clean hotel with a comfortable bed and wonderful breakfast. The hotel desk person had very good suggestions for local eateries.

Great homecoming for the 3rth time. Hotel is the most preferred for a good stay near the inner city. In the near there are good and enough bars restaurants and subway and bus stops. On the top of the hotel there is a nice place for sunbathing with a view at the segrada.

it was fine, they sugested a good restaurant close by, i had a problem with our AC unit, not working and they were not able to fix the problem that evening, a had to wait until the next day to have it fix.

The hotel was of average quality. The room was of an OK size. Upon arrival we found that the air conditioning was not working properly, when we mentioned it the next morning it had been repaired/reset by the time we came back at the end of the day. The breakfast is quite basic and they really need to invest in a new hot plate. Breakfast is between 7.00 and 10.30am but I should imagine that if you wanted everything piping hot you must get there at the start, we went down each morning of our stay around 9.30 - 10.00 am and the hot food was basically cold food!! The staff at reception are extremely helpful. Barcelona is a fantastic city and I would recommend visiting if you have not already been or visit again if you have! The hotel is quite central to the attractions but quite a way from the beach/port, when we come back we would look for a hotel nearer to these.

Stayed for 2nights in the Aranea Hotel.. We were in room 405. Nice size room and clean... Staff at reception were welcoming and helpful. Good location quite close to La Sagrade Familia. Lovely view from roof top sunset is a must over the City. Just 5mins away is a beautiful restaurant called Parrilla Alfonsins its the best steak house in Barcelona, Food is good and staff are lovely its a must... Over all the hotel is nice and great for site seening the City. I will be going back again

From the offset we throughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel.Staff at front of house in reception were so welcoming and went above and beyond in making our stay special. Rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and were left spotless!we look forward to a return visit sometime in the future and have recommended the hotel to family and friends!!

Enjoyed our stay, very comfortable, staff was extremely helpful. Enjoyed the free use of wi fi, Wish we could have stayed longer. Hotel was centrally positioned to allow for access to transport, or to walk to various sightseeing places.

Comfortable, clean rooms with spacious bathroom. Beds were comfortable too. Good location quite close to La Sagrada Familia also one of the three tourist bus routes...which tickets are cheaper at reception and the price includes all three routes! Easy to hail taxis from outside hotel and costs not too bad to anywhere else in the city. Didn't eat there though, we don't eat much for breakfast and enjoyed eating in the bar over the road. Areana may only be a three star hotel but the price was very good for what you get!

The hotel was in a good location - near one of the main streets and in walking distances of the Familia Sagrada - the famous and unfinished cathedral attributed to Gaudi - also with in walking distance to catch the Hop on Hop off - Nice eating places in St. Joan's street. The temperature in the room was very comfortable as it was quite cool outside.

This is centrally located close to Sagrada Familia. Train station is only 2 blocks and the bus stop. Staff are very nice and helpful. The hotel is clean, the bed is firm and perfect and the breakfast is great.
