Ok but not perfect and close to everything

Posted May 15, 2017
I liked the location of the hotel. Walk 10/15mins and you're somewhere of interest. Also had a grocery store next door, so simply perfect. Room positives- The room was very clean and some toiletries are provided. Almost positives- Room has a thermostat- this wasn't working to it's full potential for the 1st 2days but was fixed on the 3rd day. The down sides- Room was pretty small Their Wi-Fi needs major upgrading...when it did worked, it would randomly cut off. Overall I did like my stay....but would probably look for a better place next visit...this would be my back up

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While I wish you had a better experience, we can use your feedback to improve. We regret that our free wifi in the rooms suffered a punctual failure for a few hours one of the days of your stay, and for that reason you could not stay connected longer. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case that we fell short. If you give us a chance to recover your confidence I can assure you that we will do our best to give you the great hotel experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of. Sincerely, Jose A Pamies Director Hotel Best Aranea

Dear guest, Thank you for staying at Hotel Aranea and for sharing your positive feedback. All your comments are important for us in order to improve our services. In our hotel we have both heating and air conditioning and both work according to the temperature outside. During the season changes there are always days when the outside temperature changes rapidly between day and night, which makes it difficult sometimes to meet the individual needs of each client. We regret that during your stay, the temperature was outside 20 degrees outside, but at night it went down to 10 degrees. We hope to see you soon again. Sincerely, Jose A Pamies Director Hotel Best Aranea.

Nice hotel but be prepared to walk to attractions

Posted Apr 19, 2017
Hotel was very clean and comfortable provided free shower gel, shampoo etc. Breakfast was ok. The hotel is close to sagrada Familia but be prepared to walk to all other attractions, the beach is about 1hrs walk from hotel.

Dear Carls, Thank for for staying in our hotel and for your time in sharing your experience. We are glad to know that you enjoyed your visit. All your comments are important for us in order to improve our services and premises. Barcelona is a large city, with many places of interest to visit, and they are not all together. Barcelona has a great network of public transport, buses and underground transport, both are recommend to move around easily. Or, more conveniently you can use the well-known Touristic Bus, that takes you comfortably to all the tourist places of this city. We hope to see you soon again. Sincerely, Jose A Pamies Director Hotel Best Aranea

Location!

Posted Mar 20, 2017
Let me say that this hotel has a great location near the metro, plaza Catalonia, and La Sagrada Familia. The bars around it are also prettt nice. Now, the room! So small!! BUT I paid Ana maxing price so I won't complain. I did not spend time in the room at all, just to sleep. So I didn't really mind, but if you do please be aware. I guess I also picked the cheapest one so that can also be the reason. But overall I was happy with the location, staff, and breakfast buffet!

Had a nice stay

Posted Mar 11, 2017
Pros: Great location, near Sagrada Familia. Excellent service from guys in the lobby.
Cons: Breakfast
I had a nice stay in this hotel. I sure recommend it if you are looking for nothing fancy but calm. For me and my budget it was ok. I would stay again if I went back to Barcelona.

Convenient and Free WiFi

Posted Jan 5, 2017 on Hotels
The good: Good value for what you get Clean rooms Breakfast Free solid WiFi Good location with a high walking score to shopping, restaurants, sightseeing and gay nightlife. Staff were professional and helpful and speaks English. The not so good: Standard room was small Bathroom was very cold (stayed in December) Walls are thin and you can hear every movement in the hall. Bed was a little uncomfortable and pillows were too soft.

Convenient and friendly hotel

Posted Jan 1, 2017 on Hotels
I booked the hotel for more than 2 nights in Nov 2016. At that time, there was no heating in the whole city, while it is bit cold at nights. When I talked to the receptionist, the gentleman is very considerate and offered me a portable electronic heater, which saved the nights. The room is clean and comfortable. The receptionists are friendly and decent. The location is good, easy access to public transportations and Sagrada Familia. I recommend this hotel.
