I could not recommend this hotel enough. Everything about it was ideal. Immediately upon entering the hotel, there is a lovely incense smell which I found to be very inviting. Reception was super friendly and helpful. The room was extremely spacious, especially for European standards, and spotlessly clean. The location was ideal, very close to the waterfront - a slightly...

Our stay at the Aparthotel Arai was excellent. It is in a perfect location in the Gothic area and it is very clean, quiet (they have incredibly noise blocking windows), and the staff is attentive, helpful, and very polite. Staying at the Arai made our visit to Barcelona a great experience. We recommend without hesitation.

Wish we could have stayed here longer. We were only in town for one night. The hotel was decorated really well. The staff was helpful and friendly. It was super clean and quiet. The bathroom was large and well done. We had one of the larger rooms. No complaints whatsoever.

First class service, took care of all our needs. Suggested restaurants , sites to see, minutes from all the major attractions. Just the ideal location. Our room was spotless, airy and luxurious with coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge and heat top. Roof top pool and cozy relaxing area to enjoy the evenings. We will return again.

What a great find! This hotel is off beaten path slightly but still close to everything. When locating it if you blink you’ll walk right by it. It is next door to Palosanto restaurant which has a large sign. The Arai entrance is double glass doors with the Arai name & logo on it. We arrived around 11 am on...
