Arai Aparthotel, Barcelona
Outstanding and distinctive experience
In the first five minutes I knew I was crazy about this hotel. The decor of the common areas and the room was super cool—something to distinguish this from other hotels. The staff was friendly and very helpful, and the room was extremely well appointed with every amenity. Common areas such as the gym were small but pleasant. The location in the gothic neighborhood turned out to be a real treat—easy to get around town, a short walk to the waterfront and beach, and the perfect neighborhood to wander the narrow cobblestone streets in the evenings. I only wish I had planned to stay here another couple of nights!

Great Hotel but Too limited Breakfast Service
the rooms are large and comfortable and the service people are extraordinary- helpful , knowledgeable and upbeat- it was not clear when we booked that they have no food service at all- for breakfast they will deliver to your room a very limited menu from a neighboring bakery but that's it. There is a nespresso machine in the room and the hotel is generous with the capsules but would have appreciated a more agreeable breakfast service.

Beautifully restored building
Excellent hotel with gorgeous decor in the heart of the Gothic quarter. No restaurant on site but so many all around it didn’t matter.

Great hotel, tricky location
Fantastic hotel with excellent square footage in our room for a family of 4. The only issue is accessing this hotel by rental car. Lots of one way streets and you actually have to circle around behind hotel away from waterfront to access the one way street it is on. Best to take a cab and let the locals figure it out. Traffic cones were set up in the plaza north of the hotel making it not possible to pick up family and luggage at check out. Basically they had to hike out of the Gothic Quarter to be picked up by me in rental car. Nextime will use cabs and rent car when ready to leave Barcelona and drive to other cities.
