Hi, we stayed 4 nights at Aranea Apsis Hotel, from 18th-22nd of March. Booked through Venere.com, payed very reasonable price, 54EUR/night, +11EUR/breakfast/person. Hotel is clean, with small but nice rooms, bathroom completely clean as well. Minibar with some soft drinks and maybe beers. Metro stations (Girona and Tetuan) within 5-8 minutes walking distance. Inmediate check-in at arrival, no problems at...

We stayed in Aranea for 3 nights in December and were disappointed. The hotel seems very nice if you look the photos from their internet site, but it's not as nice in real life. Our room was clean, but it wasn't in great condition. Both bedside lamps were loosily fastened to wall, so they were crooked, there was some traces...

We reserved well in advance a double room, but when we arrived there they gave us a large SINGLE room, telling us it was a double one.... The bed was 120cm large, and one side was next to the wall so that it wasn't possible to have access from both sides... When we complained, they told us that it was...

We booked the hotel via Venere.com for our New Years break,and had a good stay there. The room was a good size and very clean. I thought it was very reasonably priced for the location,very cheap minibar too. They put us in a smoking room without asking though, fortunately it didn't smell of stale smoke at all like they often...

Clean, modern, friendly hotel in a pleasant neighborhood. We stayed 3 nights, were very pleased and would stay here again. Our room was comfortable and had a nice view of the street. Our taxi driver from the airport got miffed when we put only our 2 wheelies in his trunk/boot and insisted on keeping our hand baggage with us. He...

The Hotel Apsis Aranea was within walking distance of the Ramblas; therefore a very good location for the money. The staff was very helpful, and stored our luggage for two weeks when we couldn’t get it all in the car. If I am ever lucky enough to return to Barcelona, I would stay there again.

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of September. On our first evening out, after checking in, we returned to find that money had been stolen from our room.Our room door hadn't been forced so entry must have been made by staff. We reported this to the girl on reception who didn't seem overly interested but eventually agreed to...

Hotel Aranea is certainly not the best hotel I have ever stayed in, but it is by no means anywhere close to the worst. I booked my stay at this hotel because of the price, location and positive reviews that I had read. All I was looking for was a clean and efficient place to stay for a decent cost,...

We just returned from a three night stay at the Aranea Hotel and would definitely return. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and very good for the price. We were in a room that faced a wall when looking out the window but it was very quiet. Location was fine for us as we are...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
