Antique, beautiful hotel which has good location. All staffs were good and kind. But one bad experience. First day, we found that the fuse box was so noisy. One staff came in and checked. He said there's no engineer at that time and no empty room as well. so it's not possible to fix it and change room. He give... More

Stayed for one night in a deluxe room. Very nice, modern, a good size room with sofa and desk. Busy area but quiet overnight. Close to all the main tourist areas. Easy walk on Las Ramblas to Placa de Catalunya, Gothic Quarter and the sea. Not easy to arrive by car, but a good parking garage is available a few... More

This was a very interesting property. Very old property, modern rooms. Lovely stay. Right off Los Ramblas. Lots of restaurants and convenient to sightseeing, etc. The gentleman at the front desk was extremely helpful today with an emergency we experienced. We needed to stay an additional night and there were no rooms at the hotel for that night. He worked... More

Good location Friendly and helpful staff Clean rooms and fairly spacious. Dreadful lighting in bedroom and bathroom, trying to apply make up was a nightmare . Breakfast good, ask the waiter for a coffee, which he fetches from kitchen, the coffee machine is very poor quality and cold. Loved the roof terrace and bar, lovely bar staff but drinks very...

The hotel is located very close to La Rambla and just a few minute walk from Mercat de la Boqueria (great breakfasts) and Placa Reial (great dinners). The room was big and clean, the service very nice. I recommend this hotel to all visitors to Barcelona, who want to spend maximum time on sightseeing, instead of commuting to the city... More

This hotel is ideally located for sightseeing Barcelona. Very clean and friendly staff. Although the building looked lovely and old all the rooms had a very modern twist. Rooms were clean and tidy but the bathroom let them down. The shower cubicle door could not be opened very wide as it hit on the very large sink basin, a very... More

Centrally located. Very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice belle epoque interior. Food good quality and fresh. Rooms airy and very comfortable. Draw backs.. Book a room not facing front as it is a noisy street until 2am. Pool is a plunge pool...small.

Clean, traditional, boutique hotel with modern rooms in a quiet street just off La Rambla. The hotel staff were helpful and polite. There are many wonderful eateries within a short walk. We did not dine at the hotel but had a very enjoyable breakfast there. Right in the middle of things but still quiet. We highly recommend this hotel.

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.

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
