“Fantastic Location on Las Ramblas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Very new hotel, artsy, and in a fantastic location if you want to be near Las Ramblas. Design is funky by some famous local architect. Tourists stop in to see the dining room! We hear the restaurant is top notch too but didn't get a chance to try it. The rooms are very comfortable but on the small side. It had everything we needed and was very modern and clean. Definitely a recommendation if Las Ramblas is your preference. Having seen more of the City, I would now stay in the Gothic Quarter or El Born. I really liked the area near the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Mar.

Room Tip: Interior rooms that hug the central air well are fun as you get to walk the narrow and very artsy co...

I remember coming here for a very cheap lunch many years ago and being wowed by Domenech i Montaner's fabulous decorations. The prices have gone up but it's still beautiful so it's probably worth it! ... I haven't stayed here but its location just off La Rambla augers well.

We stayed 1 week at hotel España and we love it. Room was awesome, beatiful, chic, modern, clean and very calm. Close enough from La Rambla's action, and just as far to be away from its noise and sleep well. Excellent service from all the employees. Would go back anytime!

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location just off of La Rambla. The staff are very helpful and polite and the décor within the hotel is something to behold; there is a very unusual fireplace in the bar and the walls of the dining room are amazing! The rooms themselves are contemporary in design and very comfortable. We would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to visiting it again ourselves in the not too distant future!

The hotel is situated in a perfect part of town, one block from Ramblas, a few blocks from the market, five blocks from barrio Gotic, and about a ten minute walk from the ocean. Oh, and the Metro is steps from the door. Perfect. Service was spot on, and the rooms appear to be renovated and have a boutique hotel feel to them. Excellent experience overall. Will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Barcelona.

This hotel is located just a few steps away from Las Ramblas. Staff were so helpful and the hotel is really gorgeous. The one and only compliant is that huge beds are two single beds rather than a double/king size bed and even though we asked for a double bed we go two singles. Nevertheless I would recommend this hotel to all family and friends!
