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.

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

Room, balcony, bathroom
Stayed for five nights, well located to metro and nice room. A "why bother" plunge pool , bar fridges that don't keep things cold, too close to other guest rooms, and an average buffet breakfast are some of the reasons I think it's overpriced.

Lovely Central Hotel

The beautiful building, the position in the city and the helpfulness of staff
Had a lovely stay, the hotel was beautiful and located just behind Las Ramblas. We did not have the breakfast though, abit too pricey and starbucks was around the corner.

Nice but not worth money

Great interior, location, and rooftop
Everything is great but I feel like this hotel is not worth the money. There are better options available around that is similar and cheaper if you travel on budget. This area is a bit loud as well at night - this is something to consider. Also I booked this hotel mainly because of its rooftop but just found out that it will open only in summer (which is very disappointing).
