Set on a tree-lined street to the west of Barcelona historic centre, the Pestana Arena Barcelona is a modern hotel that offers good value for money. Plaza de España is just around the corner and there are three Metro stations within a couple of blocks.
The area is central but not overly touristy or noisy, and is especially good for visiting sights like the Magic Fountain, where there are regular evening light shows, and the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya in neighbouring Montjuïc. Las Arenas Shopping Centre, where you will find boutiques and a selection of rooftop restaurants, is also just few minutes away on foot. Guests can hire bikes from the hotel to explore the city on wheels.
After a day of sightseeing, head back for traditional tapas at the funky lobby bar or to chill out in the courtyard, which is decorated with giant cartoon flowers. The restaurant serves a very reasonable set menu for lunch (weekdays) and Mediterranean dishes at dinner. The buffet breakfast has plenty of choice, including pastries, yoghurt, fruit and cold cuts. There is also a small gym with a sauna and a steam room.
Rooms are clean and bright with free Wi-Fi and great air conditioning, along with in-room safes and mini bars. Superior Rooms are larger, while Junior Suites on the seventh floor have private terraces with outdoor Jacuzzis and views of the Montjuïc hill (home to the Barcelona Olympic Park).
