Positive Reviews

A true boutique experience

If you like the feel of a boutique hotel, one that is simply chock full of charm and atmosphere, the Aria will definitely satisfy Its blend of ornate Gothic architecture with all the modern conveniences makes the entire place feel like a restored work of art There are all kinds of cool antiques and objets d’arte here.

Location great for exploring Barcelona

You can’t get much more central than this hotel If you’re looking for a memorable Barcelona visit, the Aria is right in a triangle of activity with Las Ramblas, the Cathedral and Barcelona Port making up the three corners And, of course, the Gothic Quarter is one of the best parts of Barcelona for just walking around and taking in the sights.

Plenty of nightlife

You’ll find no lack of live music and dancing venues in this neighbourhood Some world-class chefs work in this area It’s also a great place for discovering local hideaways.

Negative Reviews

Labyrinth of winding streets

If you’ve never been to Barcelona, be prepared to navigate through a labyrinth of narrow, winding cobbled streets If you’re arriving by car this may be disconcerting On the other hand, it might be seen as just part of the Barcelona experience.

Tiny swimming pool on roof

A few guests commented that the pool on the roof was about the size of a large bathtub.

No breakfast at hotel

Overall, there were very few complaints about this establishment A small number of guests mentioned no breakfast at the hotel However, since this is made well known on their website and since there are an abundance of eateries in the area, it might not be a problem for most.
