With its modernist architecture and location at the heart of Barcelona's oldest district, Hotel Espana blends heritage with modern-day comfort. The hotel is situated on a quiet street, just a few minutes' walk from Las Ramblas and its attractions, while the nearby metro station provides access to the wider city. Rooms are small but comfortably furnished and feature essentials such as air conditioning, but this property is better known for its lobby and dining rooms. Designed by Lluis Domenech i Montaner, they are breathtaking examples of modernist architecture. One has sea life murals by Ramon Casas, the other magnificent floral tiling and a wood-beamed roof. Guests can enjoy a leisurely breakfast, light lunch, or evening meal in such an intimate, original ambiance.

Great Location, lovely hotel

Location is great, breakfast was good, terrace was great
The whole experience was as expected from their website. We were travelling as a group of friends and had twin rooms, the bed were a little close together, not a bit issue but worth noting. The location could not have been better and the breakfast was great value for money. Would definitely return this hotel if I visit Barcelona again.

Perfect location

Location, location, location
Great stay in a lovely hotel right in the center. Only slight disappointment was rooftop bar had screening all the way round so there were no views from it. Didn't eat at the hotel so no idea what food was like but had to fill in food section on this review.

historical location

historical landmark. location. staff service
pleasant stay. staff was very accommodating... I ordered coffee that arrived very late due to a misunderstanding with the server. And without hesitation my order wasn't charged to compensate for the minor inconvenience
