Stayed at Hotel Aranea for 4 nights during September; prior to checking in I had to leave my luggage at the hotel because I flew for 2 days to Madrid. I was charged EUR 2/piece/day eventhough I was returning to stay at their hotel.
In general their front desk staff (except Alberto or Roberto) weren't the friendliest; speaking with an attitude and not flexible at all.
We stayed in room 207 which had a weird lay out that could barely fit 2 persons with their luggage. The room was cleaned daily and toiletries added daily, slow wifi was available in the room. The bed is a NIGHTMARE, the mattress is stiff an uncomfortable; when we asked to change our because of this the answer was: ALL OUR ROOMS ARE SAME!!
The location of the hotel is okay; close to Sagrada familia but we had to commute to reach everything else.
Didn't eat at hotel or used anything from the mini bar; plenty of cheap places around. Used to have nice breakfast @ Joan's (a nearby patisserie).
Wouldn't stay there if I visit Barcelona and nor will recommend this hotel.
