About Arai Aparthotel, Barcelona

4-star stylish hotel in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter

Close to La Rambla

Set in a handsome 18th-century building in the Gothic Quarter, Arai Aparthotel is located directly opposite La Plaza de George Orwell, and a 6-minute walk from the metro. The famous bars, shops, and cafés of La Rambla are a 5-minute walk, and most are open day and night.

Art and architecture

Gaudí’s Palau Güell mansion - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - is a 5-minute walk and La Sagrada Família is a 25-minute metro trip - both big hits with visitors. The Art Nouveau Palau de la Música Catalana, which hosts dinner and dancing events, is a 10-minute walk.

Artistic inside and out

The hotel’s stunning sgraffito facade is a prime taster for the Clos Foundation artworks collection that awaits inside. You can taste Peruvian and modern cuisine at Kokka, while Palosanto tavern favors Spanish fare and tapas. Guilt-free lazy days can be enjoyed in the solarium and sauna, and you can work out at the fitness center or take a dip in the outdoor pool. Babysitting or childcare is available onsite.

Great hotel in Barcelona
Wonderful hotel. Location was great. Windows and black out curtains kept out city noise and light. Great big towels. You'll have to ask for washcloths. Very nice and helpful employees.
