There were mixed reviews that I had read before booking and I went with my gut instinct that the negative reviews were a bit picky and boy, am I glad I did. From the moment we walked through the doors the welcome we received into this fantastic place stayed throughout our stay. The ambience is amazing and I actually defy...

Beautiful, historical hotel with great central location right on La Rambla. The very helpful staff had good dinner recommendations. Rooms are well maintained and a bit small, but clean. Very nice breakfast and bar.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Espana on vacation. The general hotel was very nice and historical, however, the rooms were not of equal quality and were not very comfortable. I found that the mattress, pillows and towels were very low quality. Additionally, the walls were so thin that I could hear the guest in the next room snoring, breathing...

It's no wonder that this hotel has guided tours of the building itself.The public rooms and various stairwells and atriums are beautiful . It's about 75 metres from Las Ramblas so well located but quieter than being on the Ramblas itself. The bedrooms in contrast to the beautifully renovated traditional public rooms are modern and well equipped. Modern bathrooms and...

Stayed at Hotel Espana last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is unique with lots of character. All the reception rooms have been sympathetically restored and are beautiful.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 4 Star Superior Hotel Espana is located in the heart of Barcelona's historic centre, adjacent to La Rambla, the Gran Teatre del Liceu and the Gothic Quarter. Opened in 1859, it was later renovated by the celebrated modernist architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner. The hotel has always been considered a little gem of Barcelona modernism. Completely renovated in 2010, it combines modern interior design with the classicism of a nineteenth century building. The hotel's restaurant service is under the management of the chef Martin Berasategui. ... more   less
