Myself and my husband stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in February. We got a taxi from the airport at a price of €32. First impressions were very good. Check-in was very smooth and someone was there immediately to show us to our room. I had emailed the hotel (twice) asking for a room upgrade and a bottle of... More

Love love love this hotel, staff cannot do enough for you, rooms are fantastic will definatley be back. Modern, with a gothic touch, right in the centre and seconds walk to La Ramblas. What a little gem. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable. Can't wait for our next visit, hopefully in the summer to make use of the pool!

Nice stay there but it was a short one. Very nice breakfast! The choice was great! the pillows are a bit too big and only one pillow each. We could have 2 per person for that standard I would say. The bathroom is very nice and modern. The location is really great not far from the market and metro very... More

Taxi from airport took approx 20 mins and cost around €25. Hotel is located off Las Ramblas down a small side street. Hotel staff on reception were very welcoming and helpful. Check in was speedy. Our room was located on 3rd floor. We used both the stairs and the lift during our stay. We had a street view which did... More

I visited the Espana at possibly the quietest time of the year. The hotel is perfectly located for the tourist, just off the middle of La Rambla. The public rooms are exceptional, certainly unique in their decoration, reflecting turn of the 20th century fashion. By contrast, my bedroom, once I found it in the permanent gloomy light, was very modern... More

Nice hotel with friendly helpful staff. Location is perfect. Breakfast was too expensive & the room was "bijou" to say the least! At check-in we were asked if we wanted a king size bed so we said yes. Unfortunately the big bed meant there was very little room for anything else!

Here for a business meeting. It really is a lovely old place that has been modernised and is a great location for the traveller, tourist or business, to enjoy their stay. It has a good staff and a lovely old interior in the main areas while the rooms have all been updated and are swish and swanky. The only issues,... 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.
