We stayed in a room with one double bed. The room was very nice and clean and modern. It faced the front of the hotel on the main street which seems a little loud during the day, but became very quiet in the evening with the window closed. We had no problems sleeping. What we found strange about this bed and breakfast is that the price does not include the breakfast. One would assume it is included in a bed & breakfast. You are able to purchase a nice breakfast with a variety of choices for additional money. There was always someone at the desk who spoke very good English, which was a great help and we very much appreciated. Although the location is not the best, we would stay here again. The room and staff were very nice.

A newly refurbished hotel only two metro stops from Catalunya Square. The room and the bathroom were quite spacious. The only negative side - one of the cleaning ladies always forgot to replenish our soap and shower gel. Every other night we had to go down to the reception to ask for some. Quite expensive breakfast, in a cafe down the same street one could get delicious sandwiches and croissants for only 1.20 EUR/piece.

Best way to get from airport is to go to Passege de Gracia and then take metro to Tetuan.Wifi is quite bad quality.Breakfast better to take in caffeteria at the front of hotel. Very qualifite and cortesy personal (get a good info about sea food restuarant and how to get to many places).Next visit to Barsa I will stay there!!!

The best value for money hotel in my 3 week european tour. The hotel pushes to be 4 stars, the staff is very competent, the hotel always smells very nice. The rooms are very nicely decorated and have a welcoming ambience in them. Its on a main street, however did hear any noise during the night. Close to 2 subway stations and in a safe area with lots of supermarkets close by. Great hotel would be my first choice if I visit BCN again

We stayed for 4 nights. The first room w/ a queen bed was small and over the inner courtyard airconditioner so noisy. We were moved to a larger room w/ 2 beds on the street. It was larger and quieter. The front desk staff was very helpful. It is about a 25 minute walk from Las Ramblas, so quieter but not in the middle of the action.

Overall a nice hotel, conveniently situated in Barcelona, with however: - the bed was too firm, it took me two nights to get accustomed to - the buffet breakfast at 11.77Euros is too expensive for what it is (but there is an express version at 3.5Euros, and many pubs around) - the free wifi worked fine only in the lobby and lounge, not in the room I had.

But the hotel is really close to Sagrada Familia. And the room is clean and quiet, bathroom is good. Finally it is a good hotel and reasonable price, a good choice to stay here.

Abbiamo soggiornato in camera matrimoniale, un po' limitata come metratura considerando che essendoci stati 9 notti avevamo 2 belle valigie che nn sapevamo dove mettere, comunque nel complesso hotel carino e comodo come ubicazione anche se la fermata della metro nn è poi così vicina come pare dalle descrizioni dei vari siti. Consigliato sicuramente, per la colazione chi nn vuole spendere tutti quei soldi vicino c'è un supermercato dove si possono trovare merendine, biscotti, succhi di frutta e altro...conviene!!

A great hotel at the price we paid. Newly remodeled in the past few years, modern decor, large bathroom in comparison to other places we stayed in Europe. Great location. WiFi area/internet room was beautiful. A very busy street, the only drawback is the loudness of the location--if you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs. We were unable to keep our windows open at night for sleeping due to the noise. Otherwise we loved the location. Rooftop terrace has a great view of the surrounding area and even a little bit of the Sagrada Familia. Chaise lounge chairs available and even an outdoor shower. No shade, be careful of the sun. Definitely a bargain for such a nice hotel at this price.

The hotel is excellent, especially for the price. It is located in nice district; only 5min walk to Sagrada Familia and near Tetuan metro station. It's not necessary to book a breakfast for 11EUR, because there are few bakeries near the hotel and you may have a good breakfast only for 3-4EUR.

Hotel consigliabile in una buona posizione a Barcellona. Dalla stazione dei bus provenienti da Girona (Ryanair) si può fare tranquillamente a piedi in 10 minuti a passeggio. La metro è a 4-5 minuti a piedi (fermata "Monumental" linea viola) che collega in due fermate il centro della città. Camere belle, nuove e piuttosto pulite. Bagno nuovo e ben dotato, anche con un set completo di bagnoschiuma e shampoo per chi ne fosse sprovvisto data l'impossibilità di imbarcare liquidi con il bagaglio a mano. A pochi metri dall'Hotel c'è un supermarket dove poter acquistare di tutto. La colazione a 11 euro è cara e non l'abbiamo provata. Per il resto tutto ok, personale molto gentile e disponibile. Ci tornerei volentieri. Siamo coniugi di 30 anni.

Overall the our stay at the Aranea was enjoyable and offered good value for money.Myself and my girlfriend stayed fur 4 nights in early March. The first impression wasnt too good as the outside of the hotel did not look anything like the photographs on the web site. On entering the lobby though we were impressed by the bright clean decor and the girl on reception was very helpful and spoke good English. The room was slightly on the small side but clean and comfortable. The hotel is located on a quite busy road but traffic noise was not too bad ( the nearest metro is a six or seven minute walk).I would recommend the Areana for a short stay in Barcelona

Hotel was good , however, hairdryer was broken and towels not replaced. Also, we booked a taxi from the hotel on the morning of departure and they charged us €55 to the airport which was a rip off - if this is standard I think hotel should have warned us as the fare from airport to hotel was €30. But overall hotel was excellent value for money.

Beware room 202 (ditto 102, 302 etc?). We booked a double room for 2 nights... and it wasn't... a double room. It was just too small, A small double bed, hard up against a wall, in a room that was small. I complained and we were given, with no argument, a much better room (204) for the next night. It was acknowleged that 202 was small. It'd be fine for 1 person though. However, even in room 204 the hairdryer was broken and there was no hot water in the morning... Breakfast in the hotel is expensive (11 euro), but if you are hungry and like numerous cups of coffee, then it's probably worth it. And... what is said about Barcelona is true... Beware pick pockets!! Someone - a woman - had a go at my bag within 5 minutes after getting off the airport shuttle bus. Luckily, having been warned, all the 'valuables' were in the pocket closest to me... safe. Otherwise Barcelona was great. Enjoy!

It was my first time in Barcelona. The hotel was good, located near the Sagrada Familia and other interesting places, like Barrio Eixample, where the Gaudì houses are. The area is quiet and safe at night. The rooms are modern and have been cleaned every day. The staff is helpful even when you need more info about restaurants nearbys. We didn't have breakfast included in the room price so we ended up in a delicious cheap bakery which is very close to the hotel. There is also a supermarket next to it.

Camera un po' troppo piccola (dalle foto non si capiva). La colazione è veramente troppo cara per noi Italiani. La stessa identica colazione l'abbiamo pagata (2 persone) € 24,00 in hotel e € 4,10 in uno dei numerosi bar poco distanti. Il personale: se sei fortunato trovi i 2-3 ragazzi simpaticissimi. Altrimenti trovi quel demente che alla mia richiesta di chiamarci cortesemente un taxi mi ha risposto "guardi se esce in fretta ne sta per passare uno". Non il massimo della professionalità. Non fate l'errore, se arrivate alla Estaciò del Nord, di andarci a piedi pensando (come qualcuno ha qui fatto intendere) che l'hotel sia dietro l'angolo. Ci arrivere con la lingua fuori e i primi giorni di vacanza li utilizzerete per riprendervi dalla immane fatica. Ho riportato le poche note negative. Complessivamente è un buon albergo. Lo consiglierei ad un amico.

hotel in posizione strategica (2 linee diverse delle metropolitana vicine) e allo stesso tempo si può raggiungere il centro a piedi in 15 min circa. Zona molto tranquilla e allo stesso tempo sicura.Personale cortese e hotel pulito.

Otherwise a very good hotel but the rooms were not quiet, we could hear almost everything from the hallway and neighbouring rooms. About 15 minutes walk from Placa Catalunya. The nearest metro station was quite close so the location was not a problem. The hotel was very good value for money compared to e.g. hotel Nouvel near Rambla that we stayed in the last time.

L'hotel e molto carino e accogliente, anche meglio di quanto appare in foto. Non è cetralissimo, ma la metro è a 5 minuti e si arriva facilmente anche al centro (15-20 minuti a piedi). Sorprendente il rapporto qualità/prezzo, unico neo: le stanze dell'ultimo piano accanto alla centralina dell'ascensore..piuttosto rumorose

We had booked a mostly quiet room, but got one in front of a mayor road. It was nearly impossible to open the window during night for getting fresh air, because the traffic was very heavy! Nevertheless the service was excellent inside the hotel with very kind and helpful employees. So it could happen we would book the same hotel next time we come back to Barcelona!

3rd time we have booked a Hotel via Venere, and again, it met the standards set out on the web site and the various reviews/comments posted. Our 7/10 quietness of room rating was no surprise, as previous notices had warned of this; I'd put this down to the fact that night life starts off late in Barcalona. The rooms were spotless, and extremely well maintained. All staff very courteous, and breakfast excellent. I'd estimate located roughly midway from Tetuan Metro stop and Segrada Familia (The Cathedral), roughly 15 mins walk from each. Some might say a bit away from the Ramblas and the Port area, but I thought a great base, as quiet and safe at night, away from hussle, bussle and noise of the Centre. Took taxi to and from the Airport; 4 up with cases, apx 35 Euros inc the various supplements.

Vicino alla Sagrada Familia, piuttosto vicino al centro storico, metro a 10 min. Unica pecca, per chi raggiunge Barcellona con l'auto, la mancanza di garage. Ho dovuto rivolgermi ad una autorimessa molto vicina, ma cara.

Molto pulito e cortesi al nostro arrivo: il lettino in camera ce l'hanno fornito e montato subito. Servizio bar per colazione un pò caro rispetto a quanto atteso. Per il resto è vicinissimo a tutto, anche alle fermate metro.

The Hotel was very nice and in a quiet location. The room was clean and spacious but unfortualtely we had a terrible view on a wall just 1 metre in front of the window. At least the room was very quiet. Anyway good quality for good money.

The location is good because you are not in the heart of the chaos, but there are underground stops near by the hotel which are easy to use. We wanted to sleep in some mornings, and it was hard to since the whole place is hardwood floors you hear the cleaning people in the mornings. There is a grocery store right next door if you wanted to buy a cheap breakfast, and restaurants around. You are not a far walk from Las Rambas. The rooms were very clean and the staff spoken English, which was beneficial for us.

Ottimo hotel situato in zona tranquilla a circa 4 isolati (15 min a piedi) dalla fermata della linea 3 (Girona) del metro. Personale cordiale e disponibile, con buona conoscenza della lingua italiana. La colazione, 11 € da pagare a parte, è abbondante e varia, in alternativa nei pressi della struttura ci sono varie caffetterie e bar con prezzi più che ragionevoli. Dalla stazione degli autobus provenienti da Girona si impiegano circa 20 min. Consigliato

Obwohl wir etwa 4 Monate vorher unsere Zimmer reserviert hatten, wurde ein Ehepaar unserer Gruppe gezwungen in einem Einzelzimmer im Einzelbett zu übernachten. Noch nicht einmal ein zweites Kissen wurde ihnen angeboten. Bezogen auf den Preis war dies ein sehr mieser Service. Nachts mussten wir wegen elektronischen Problemen erst einige Zeit vor der Tür warten, um dann den Fahrstuhl nicht benutzend den sechsten Stock zu Fuss zu erklimmen. Dies nach einem anstrengenden Besichtigungstag in Barcelona. Entschuldigung oder Wiedergutmachung Fehlanzeige! Und wie überall im Süden werden Singles diskriminiert. Ein Einzelzimmer ist nur unwesentlich billiger als ein Doppelzimmer.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our two rooms, though not large, were comfortable and clean. The staff were helpful, informative and efficient. The restaurant breakfasts (we didn't have other meals there) were quite satisfactory, with a reasonable array of choices. There is an underground rail station about four blocks' walk away. Overall, we were very satisfied.

Das Hotel kann ich nur empfehlen. Zwar bleibt man vom Personal schon mal unbeachtet, aber das Hotel liegt zwischen der Sagrada Familia und der Altstadt, zu der man in 10 Minuten Fußmarsch gelangt. Das Hotel ist sehr sauber, unser Zimmer war mit Laminat ausgelegt und holzvertäfelt. Und das Bad war fast so groß wie das Zimmer, und vor allem sehr sauber!!!!

I stayed as 3 night offer. I liked the Cleanliness and Spaciousness of the room. The service was sufficient. And the deco of the room was nice and basic (as you can see from photo). If other people who stay at the hotel go by the corridor not laud at night, then it is very quiet. There is nearly no sounds coming out from outside. It locates local area and I liked it. There are 3 stations from Hotel on foot takes around 10min. I don’t know this called far or not, but I felt not that close to public transport. There is no breakfast included the prise, I knew that through the Venere web page, so I bought fruits and bread in a supermarket. There are lots of shops near by. So that was no problem. It is good place to stay. I am very satisfied, and I will go back there again if I visit Barcelona again.
