We really enjoyed our stay at the Aria - staff were very helpful and pleasant. Room was very nice - decent bed - great decor - loved the shower! Interesting history about this boutique style hotel. Excellent location - easy to get to metro and surrounded by shops and restaurants. Have already recommended to friends who are travelling abroad.

Historic hotel in the old quarter of the city. Easy walk to the Ramblas, the Cathedral etc. The staff were extremely helpful and told us that the building once housed the art school where Picasso studied and his father taught. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable, with a little kitchen area. Altogether a great place to stay.

Staff could not do enough, it is an energetic location and gives you a real feel for the city. The hotel is fresh and not dated but has an old world feel about it. Rooms were very clean and the sound proofing and black out curtains means not matter what's going on outside you get a great night's sleep. Again, the staff really make the place. Thank you.

Lovely Hotel in the Gothic area

5 out of 5
by from Scotland
Posted Nov 14, 2016
Pros: We loved our room, complete with fridge, crockery and seated area. The location was great for both culture and shopping. It is very close to Las Ramblas.
Cons: I don't have any negatives about this hotel. It is in the Gothic area, very near the town square where there seemed to be a couple of (very quiet) demonstrations when we were there and hence roads are very narrow with taxis struggling perhaps to access hotel door.
Location: The Cathedral, Las Ramblas, small boutiques up every avenue. We walked to Casa Batllo and Pedrera. Wonderful tapas and restaurants nearby.

Home away from home

Location: The hotel was very central, walking distance to everything. Restaurants close by.
Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and it was home away from home. We had the deluxe room at it was more than enough for the two of us. Hotel staff were the best, very accommodating. Room was clean, no complaints. Water pressure was excellent.

Superb location just off las ramblas!

5 out of 5
by from gb
Posted Oct 30, 2016
Pros: The unique character of the hotel, just stunning! Location superb and the staff so welcoming and friendly. They recommended the best tapas bar!
Cons: There is sitting in the foyer and newspapers which is nice. Perhaps a coffee/ drinks macine maybe a nice addition.
Location: Nice vintage shops and restaurants nice to be off the las ramblas as quite busy and noisy, so being situated in a fairly quiet lane just off was ideal
Room was beautifully presented. Clean and very tidy. The kichen area had everything you would need, so having breakfast in the room was nice as it gave us alittle more time to explore Barcelona! The coffee machine was a nice addition too! Beds comfortable and the fold down bed also. I would say one of the nicest hotels that we have stayed in. For a short cut break ideal!
