    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.

    ... and I say "Perro Bonito"  She literally said "Ya" and turned away.  It was awkward and embarrassing all at the same time.  Either way - my dog is cuter!  And his owner has a better personality.  Not everyone was this way, in fact I would say the Spaniards were very warm and friendly.  I enjoyed Spain very much and look forward to coming back.  With this I end my stay in Spain and tomorrow it is off to Italy, the final leg of this journey. ...

    ... s sleep and Maria had prepared us some breakfast and coffee before we decided to hit the beach.

    Getting to the beach at about 11am it was already pretty busy but we found ourselves a spot and lapped up the sun and the heat, being Europe there was your standard amount of topless bathers and overly tanned individuals.

    After a couple of hours at the beach we headed back to get ready for our walking tour.

(Mendoza 418) Before marking the decline of the city with his disappearance from Barcelona, however, Bouvila benefited from extreme power and wealth. Bouvila began his career largely by passing out Anarchist pamphlets at the 1888 World Fair and earning an extremely paltry salary while doing so. He wanted ...

    May 17Today was very uneventful as we just drove from Valencia to Barcelona, but there were a couple of interesting things to note. The first is if you try to avoid the toll roads, since the charge is near 30 euro for the trip, we will drive through all of these tiny little towns and two lane roads. While normally this wouldn't have been an issue, traffic was terrible and I thought Logan was going to lose his cool driving behind the very very slow drivers ...

    ... like a hard scratch, a slight burning sensation with a little pain in certain spots. Certainly, nothing unbearable. This goes on for 30 seconds and he stops to check if I’m ok. I can’t believe that there is no pain, just slight discomfort. My entire body relaxes, the smile comes back on my face and the next 25 minutes are a breeze. I chat with Johnny and the girls and it’s done before I know it. And just like that, I have my first tattoo! It has been on ...
