We really loved our stay at Hotel Espana. The hotel location couldn't be better! Our favorite part was the rooftop bar / pool area. A really nice way to spend a couple hours after sightseeing all morning / afternoon! The room was clean and decor modern. Can't beat it for the price!

We received complementary water and juice everyday and on arrival a couple off mini cakes. We only had one issue with the room not being... More

I spent 4 nights at the hotel and I recommend it very much. A few walks from the ramblas street, the port and catalunia square. Main location, even the metro stop is a few walks away. The service at the hotel was great very kind people. The room was clean and very nice design.very recommended!!!

We caught a cab from the train station to our hotel, Hotel Espana, which took about 20 minutes. Our room was not ready when we got there, but they worked and had us in our room in about 15 minutes. Again the room was nice and clean, but small. This time we did ask to upgrade our room to a... More

Firstly the positives: the hotel is about 100 meters off La Rambla which is a good thing. It is also a beautiful building with really nice architectural features. The rooftop restaurant / bar, Allaire is stunning. The cheek out was efficient and friendly. Now the negatives: I followed a few hotels for a month or so on Tripadvisor and chose... More

This is minutes walk from La Rambla. You step out walk 500 ft or so and you are on La Rambla street which is the centre of activity and kind of the focal point of "visors Barcelona" Rooms are well appointed but a cramped up. When they assign a room make sure you check out the room - some rooms... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 4 nights on a long city break in August 2016. This hotel is classy and modern but has a considerable history. The room was small but very comfortable and modern. It had a big double bed, a sofa, a desk and chair. The decor was contemporary. There was a safe in the room... More

Beautiful hotel ... immaculate and very clean. All the staff are friendly and professional. There are two negatives ...the lighting is very dim in both the rooms and communal areas and the noise from outside never ever ceases. Take earplugs with you.

Beautiful building with fascinating interior. Superb rooftop bar. The bathroom was replenished daily with decent toiletries. The staff were polite and helpful and the rooftop bar staff were friendly and convivial. The bedroom was cosy to say the least!!. We had booked a twin room but they only had doubles left when we arrived. But I would return . Great... 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.

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
