Just spent one night here before onward journey. Been on numerous occasions to barca but not stayed here before. Location is good if you want central although nowhere is far in the city. The hotel itself does have some beautiful features - ornate staircase and dining room. The room (go higher for quieter) was decent - functional rather than grand.... More

This hotel is situated in the heart of the Ramblas. Tastefully decorated in a very modern yet comfortable style. I found the room to be a little bit of squeeze if you are traveling with more than two suite cases. Bathroom clean and more than adequate. Enjoying a cocktail at The roof top bar was the perfect ending to a... More

This was my second visit to Hotel Espana. I thoroughly enjoyed my first stay at this hotel and chose it again to spend a couple of nights at the end of an amazing tour of Spain. I was a bit apprehensive before I arrived as I had recommended it to three other people from my tour and I hoped it... More

Hotel is situated just off La Rambla, our room was very quiet. Amenities in our room were good, air conditioning, bed comfortable, bathroom also adequate. We chose the breakfast deal at the hotel which was good value for money. Roof top bar and pool was excellent. Take the time to look at the fireplace in the downstairs bar also the... More

Really easy hotel to use as a base for Barcelona. We stayed on the 1st floor with a balcony and it was surprisingly quiet. Room was very clean and nicely fitted out - lots of lighting options and good TV. We received a complimentary drink card for the rooftop bar and nice little dip pool. Overall a comfortable stay, very... More

Room was small but clean and comfortable. Unfortunately our room was over the street and the balcony doors were very thin could hear every little noise. It was in a great location close to restaurant and Las Ramblas with great shopping

We stayed here at the recommendation of our travel agent and have already sent a thank you email. What a fantastic position just off La Ramblas. Great service from all the friendly staff and enjoyable to have a quiet drink on the rooftop bar. The room was air conditioned, bed comfortable and bathroom while a little cramped in the toilet...

We stayed here for a girls trip and could not have asked for a better stay. Reasonably priced boutique hotel right in the middle of the main La Ramblas shopping area. The service friendly and attentive, staff were helpful and efficient. Rooms were on the small side but well appointed. This will be my first choice for my next trip... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood 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.
