Hotel is located off the Ramblas. Our minivan could not drive to the front of the hotel so we walked with our luggage. Not the best atmosphere to arrive at the front of the hotel. But the hotel is charming, quaint and the rooms are modern. The location is great right in the middle of the Ramblas. The terrace area... More

Hubby and I had the most amazing 3 nights here. We cannot wait to go back. The staff are lovely, the location is perfect, within walking distance to most places, and right over the road from the fantastic gothic quarter where you can meander in the streets and find quirky bars and restaurants. Also, within 5 minutes walk up las... More

Hotel is very modern with a great look to reception. Receptionist and other staff were very helpful and friendly. We found that the facilities, like the 3 bars etc all worked on different timings. The roof top terrace only opens at 3pm, so if you wish to swim before that you need to take a towel from your room. Not... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights last month before our cruise and it was a great choice. It is centrally located and close to everything. The hotel is gorgeous old world but the rooms by contrast are modern and stylish. We loved the coffee machine (the only time we came across room tea/coffee facilities in Europe) and the... More

A beautiful hotel just 100 m off las ramblas and so easy to find the restaurant was fantastic and the coffee was the nicest I tasted in Europe- the room was really nice and the rooftop bar a haven in a really hectic city

The Hotel Espana is located just off La Rambla near Placa Reial & La Boqueria so it is well situated for all of the wonderful restaurants & sights, including churches, the Goti, historic Guell House & museums. La Rambla will dazzle you but your lodging at about one block off La Rambla is quiet & serene. It is a beautiful... More

good location and a nice interior...but that's it! terrible small room (at least the standard rooms), the view in the 1st floor backside: a wall! in the night and very early in the morning: it is very loud. WiFi is very very slow. For this price you definitely will find better hotels with a similar good location
