Fodor's Review

You couldn't ask for a better location from which to explore Barcelona's Barri Gòtic—or for a bivouac more elegant—than one of the aparthotel suites in this stunning restoration. The Arai is filled with exquisite pieces of art, sculpture, and tapestry, which perfectly complement this 18th-century palace of the Quatre Rius noble family while keeping its historic character. Rooms have the original stone-and-brick walls, hardwood plank floors, exposed beam ceilings, and beds with antique spiral wooden pillars bracketing the headboards. Suites have connecting apartments that can be booked separately, with fully equipped kitchens; the "Jewel" suite boasts a private terrace with a Jacuzzi. It's perfect for family sojourns.
