    Normally, it would be 3/5. But in Barcelona everything is below average, so Hostal Aribau was a nice surprise. It was quiet, clean, and I received my own keys (that's not obvious, there are still hotels where you will be asked to return them every...More

    Stayed here for three nights. Room was ok with en-suite. Clean and tidy and relatively inexpensive. About a ten minute walk from Plaza Catalunya and near to the Aerobus stop at Plaza Universitat. Small supermarkets nearby and the excellent La Flauta is a few metres...More

    very good location, nice staff, clean room, good value for your money. Don't expect more than you can expect from a 1 star hotel, but the friendly and helpful attitude of the owners makes your stay happy and pleasant. I'd definitely come back here.

    Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
    enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
    translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
    recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
    atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
    Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
    international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
    glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
