About Hotel Espana


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.

Pleasant Stay at Hotel Espana, Barcelona
I was very happy with the location of this hotel, right off the main street of La Rambla and being opposite to the Gothic district - the district where we wanted to explore. The hotel is close to shops & restaurant and easy access to the main streets of Barcelona, fantastic! The room is clean and spacious and the little balcony was an added feature to this establishment. Thanks to Erika at the front counter for checking us in to our room so early and not wait till 2pm, a real bonus. Staff were great and very pleasant. I already recommended this hotel to my other friends who are planning to visit Barcelona.

Perfect location but very small rooms
Breakfast and location
It is in the center of Barcelona next to the famous market. The rooms are very small. The breakfast is amazing just for it, i would come back to the hotel. Tiny pool on the rooftop with a bar which makes it agreeable but cannot be crowed.

Absolute Delight!
Position, decor, staff
What a beautiful place to stay. Everything was perfect from staff through to comfort. The decor is outstanding and what has been done to this building art wise is sympathetic to its heritage.

Small but beautiful hotel
Location, Price, Restaurant
Stayed 4 nights. The room is small but still have room to move around after fitting in our two big luggages. Bathroom is spacious, clean and comfortable. Free wifi. No free bottled water but convenient store is close by and there is Carrefour within 10 mins walk on the Main Street. The hotel restaurant is very good with reasonable price. We enjoyed our lunch. The metro is 2 mins walk which connects to major sightseeing places. The only safety concern I have is that there is a narrowed walk from elevator to room 418 direction and the steel railing/fence is so low that kids or even adult may just fall over the railing and fall down to the courtyard which looks scary and dangerous to me.
