    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Aranea Barcelona

    Good hotel,shame about breakfast

    from

    If your room rate does not include breakfast dont buy at the hotel. The cost of 10.70euros is not worth it. Each day we had to request milk for cereals and on both days the scrambled eggs were all gone by 8.45 and were not replenished for 25 minutes!!

    A good choice but.............

    from

    We were not disappointed by this hotel . Everything was modern and new and the bedrooms were clean & bright with wood laminate floors and nicely appointed fully tiled bathrooms. Linen and towels were changed daily.

    The Ramblas is a good 25 minute walk from the hotel ( about 1.5 miles ) , however, the Girona metro is only 200 yards away. The neighbourhood is safe and relatively quiet with many cafes and restaurants in the area.

    Our only complaint was the poor breakfast selection and the slowness of the waitress staff to replenish food which ran out on many occasions.

    Excellent hotel

    from

    We stayed at Apsis Aranea hotel for three nights in September 2004. Excellent new hotel, good accomodations, helpful staff. Very close(2 block) to metro Girona and 11 blocks to Passiage de Gracia. Nice beautiful quiet neighborhood. We would come back.

    Well worth a stay

    from

    Going on the great advice from this website, I booked this hotel directly through their own website and got the best deal (including breakfast at a 50% reduction - worth it).

    Was very pleased with this place. Convenient location, safe neighbourhood, close to sights. Found the best way to get around was by using the buses - nearer than the metro which is only 5-7 min walk anyway. Very comfortable room, just as other reviews described. Solaruim/sundeck on the roof was great, including the shower stand to cool off - no need to head to beach to touch up the tan!

    Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Great Hotel

    from

    Fantastic hotel, the staff were extremely accommodating to my needs and that of my sidekick partner. Being a soccer mad guy the hotel offered me the use of their meeting room with the large screen television for my viewing pleasure, and the bar service for added company. The Hotel is in a very nice area and indeed is very well maintained. The staff must be commended upon ther language skills and customer service. I truly reccomend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Barcelona.

    Good

    from

    The hotel is in a good area - not far from subway and bus stops. It is very clean, the room design is modern and the staff is friendly and helpful. We booked it directly through the hotel and got a cheaper rate than expedia and hotel (the hotel is relatively new).

    Excelent Service

    from

    The hotel is conveniently located close to the Sagrada Familia (10 minute walk) in a safe neighbourhood. The price was quite reasonable (79 and 99 euros for different days) and the size was decent for european standards. They even fit a small cot for our daughter. The service was excellent, I wanted to stay an extra night and as the hotel was fully booked they offered to send me to a partner 4-star hotel for the same price; in the end they managed to give me the extra night in the same hotel. The only minuses is that the breakfast buffet is a bit expensive for what it is and that we were next to rooms with smokers (in general it looks like in Spain they do not know the concept of no smoking!); but other than that the hotel is quite good.

    Safe, Quiet Neighborhood

    from

    New hotel just opened in October '03 and offering low room rates during its break-in phase. In a fairly quiet and safe yet conveniently located residential neighborhood (in the Eixample). Within walking distance of four different Metro stops and 10-15 minute walk to RENFE/FGC station Passeig de Gracia. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Free internet access. Rooms are clean and well kept. Fresh linens and towels daily and a box ful of complimentary amenities beyond shampoo and soap.

    Although the hotel offers breakfast in a lovely breakfast room, we preferred the local cafes and bars. BTW, best rate came from hotel's own website.

    ... stage space for an orchestra. The place had the similar quirky feel re its architecture as did the hospital. The tour lasted an hour.

    We headed up to the Casa Botlol to try our luck. The line up was not too bad save for those trying to claim various discounts and having to show proof. I was down to my last 50E note so paid the 64.5E freight on Visa. The tour came with a video guide.

    The house has almost no straight edges. Colours change in various ...

    ... to wrap around everything that you are seeing and to know that it all started with one man and his vision.  I think of the hours of labor, the cost of the materials, the lives lost while building this amazing structure.  'It is breathtaking.  It seems only fit that he is buried in a tomb under the structure.   The next stop was Park Guell, but before heading there I looked around the neighborhood a bit and stopped at a nearby restaurant for some ...

    ... this was going to be the newest biggest piece of gossip. They scrambled over each other to get the best view of the damage and the discussion between both drivers. The moment my grandfather's car pulled up at the house I had flash backs. Moments, memories, sounds, smells all came flooding back to me. The house steps, the ones we have a family photo on from 13 years ago, would now be missing a few members. The smell of my great grandmother which is clean like soap, she ...

Here I am in my hotel room, the third one at this hotel, the first was small with an almost non existent window overlooking another wall to the next door building, the second smelt damp with mould on the bathroom ceiling. Each time the shower was used the water poured out onto the floor from under ...

    ... sunny and the idea of being near the water was just too tempting. We arrived in Sirmione a narrow peninsula, just four kilometers long, famous since ancient times for it's healthy spa water and took a stroll along the shore enjoying the views of the mountains in the distance. Lunch and gelatto followed and then a drive to Garda, a city further up the east coast of the lake. All is all, it was a lovely day away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We ...
