About Arai Aparthotel

4-star stylish hotel in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter

Close to La Rambla

Set in a handsome 18th-century building in the Gothic Quarter, Arai Aparthotel is located directly opposite La Plaza de George Orwell, and a 6-minute walk from the metro. The famous bars, shops, and cafés of La Rambla are a 5-minute walk, and most are open day and night.

Art and architecture

Gaudí’s Palau Güell mansion - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - is a 5-minute walk and La Sagrada Família is a 25-minute metro trip - both big hits with visitors. The Art Nouveau Palau de la Música Catalana, which hosts dinner and dancing events, is a 10-minute walk.

Artistic inside and out

The hotel’s stunning sgraffito facade is a prime taster for the Clos Foundation artworks collection that awaits inside. You can taste Peruvian and modern cuisine at Kokka, while Palosanto tavern favors Spanish fare and tapas. Guilt-free lazy days can be enjoyed in the solarium and sauna, and you can work out at the fitness center or take a dip in the outdoor pool. Babysitting or childcare is available onsite.

Shabby-chic stone

The 31 apartments have a rustic aesthetic, with exposed stone walls and shabby-chic woodwork. Amenities include safes, free WiFi, free newspapers, LCD TVs with satellite channels, balconies, and room service (limited hours).

Arai Aparthotel
Very Good8.0
Family trip to Barcelona
Loved the hotel, very quiet but close to many attractions, had a family room it was large but two single bed were sofa type. Didn’t eat here but very good bar /tapas opposite on the corner, very unassuming but really good! Had our breakfasts in the square behind in a place called l’orwel which was very nice! Would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely go myself if back in Barcelona!! Ps roof terrace really nice too!

Beautifully decorated hotel with friendly staff
I absolutely love this hotel - this was our second stay in under 6 months. Friendly helpful staff and beautiful rooms and bathrooms. Right in the middle of the gothic quarter you literally walk out of the hotel into the alleyways of shops. Only downside is it can be a bit noisy in the evenings but the hotel has good insulation and noise has never bothered me.

An absolute gem
Went for a mini break to this stunning city, and this hotel is perfectly situated in the Gothic Quarter for sight seeing and eating out. Beautiful hotel in a beautiful city.

We loved everything
Lovely hotel, in a great location, in a wonderful city. In the heart of the gothic area, close to La Rambla and the Marina. Nice room, unobtrusive air conditioning, and the staff were friendly and helpful through. Close to many good restaurants, bars, cafes and all the main sights of Barcelona. We loved it!

Arai Aparthotel
Fantastic boutique hotel in the heart of Barcelona
Absolutely beautiful hotel full of character. Both our rooms were artistically designed, and had lovely bathrooms (with nice posh toiletries provided and bathrobes - lovely!). It is situated so well for bars and restaurants, and yet was quiet at night, with no noise to keep me awake. The service was fantastic by the staff also. I was just disappointed that I was only spending one night there!
