Stayed for 3 nights with my partner. This is the second time we stay here as we already liked it the first time. Great location 3 min walking to Plaza Espanya metro station which provides fast links to the centre. Located in a quiet neighbourhood just out of the busier main streets, and easily accessible from the airport. You are 3 min away from the Mall Las Arenas which has shops, restaurants, cinema and a fantastic roof terrace with lovely views. The hotel has a nice bar area. We have never eaten here or had breakfast so we cannot comment on that. The standard double room is spacious and comfortable (king size bed with soft pillows), armchair, desk, tv, bathroom with bath/shower, Air-con, good wardrobes and safe box. There is small fridge. Ours was not switch on for some reason but this was not a problem for us and we did not call anyone. Any other times we have called reception, the staff has been helpful. It feels very quiet when inside, not crowded at least in December. Good deal.

The location is great of this hotel. It is near to 2 metro stops, making it easy to get to most attractions. The train from the airport stops 10mins walk from the hotel.
The breakfast is good & has enough choice, however there are a few coffee shops near the hotel that serve better coffee & could be a cheaper alternative.
The staff were friendly & helpful.
The only negative is that the bed is quite hard, even for me, who likes a hard mattress.

Myself and my wife went away for the weekend to Barcelona. We stayed at the Pestana Arena hotel, the 2 night stay was very comfortable and relaxing. The room was clean, nice bathroom, view down to the restaurant below, overall a good stay. The hotels main selling point is the location, which was very centrally located, 3mins away from Espanya Square, Montjuic Fountain and the metro.

We have only one negative which is the lack of amenities, there were no iron, coffee maker and the safe didn't work.

We spent 3 nights here during our stay in Barcelona. The hotel is perfectly located near Plaça d'Espanya and two metro stations (Tarragona and Hostafrances). The room we stayed in was at the 2nd floor, very spacious, with a big bathroom and a comfortable bed. We had a view to the backyard (where the terrace is placed) so it was very quiet. It would have been nice to have a balcony. The hotel provides free wi-fi, a safe and a minibar.
Breakfast was included but it did not exceed our expectations. Fairly good but poor.
The staff was very friendly and helpful starting from the receptionist (who recommended an awesome restaurant just around the corner) to the waiters. As we arrived in the morning, the rooms were not ready yet, so the receptionist offered to store our luggage in their dedicated room so we can go explore the city. Every staff member we encountered spoke fluent english.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and we would certainly come back here.
