    More about Hotel Espana

    More 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.

    City birthday break ”

    Hotel is beautiful and in a good location. Don’t expect a view because there isn’t one. Staff were helpful whenever needed. Rooms were good just not 100% clean and needed maintenance. I pre requested for something special to be left in our room for my partners birthday (which I would have paid for) the hotel acknowledged it and they didn’t do anything. Overall nice trip. I would return but with hesitation.

    Beautiful and elegant”

    An elegant experience from start to finish. All details taken care of in an understated, refined manner. Staff, always polite and at ease. The hotel, beautiful, historic yet very modern. Being that my husband is from a neighboring town it is rare that we feel so comfortable as 'tourists' at home. Thanks for the beautiful experience, we hope to come back for a longer stay in the near future.

    Great Location La Rambla Upscale”

    Great central location just off La Rambla. Our room was quiet for 4 nights. 5th night had some barking dogs and the kids (we’re 50+) in the hostel behind got a little noisy, but was short lived. King bed was awesome. Smallish room but ok. Only a couple English TV channel, but who’s there to watch TV!? Front desk staff were friendly, helpful; one helped us reserve 2 excursions by making the reservation and printing vouchers/tickets. Breakfast buffet was quite good but not exceptional. We took it only 1 day ($$) since cost was not in our room rate and lots of food in nearby market and bars. They held luggage no cost prior to our room being ready. Don’t expect early check in. It is a beautiful hotel, ornate. We did not go to roof top bar/pool. The lobby bar was never open. But no shortage of nearby bars. Taxis can come down the narrow street to the front door. Bathroom was good size and clean. Outlets are “Schuko” 220v (not North American style). Free Wifi decent speed.

    The hotel located in small alley next to metro, that's the pro. However, the room was just small and the shower room door was not quite functional and made the water leaking. The hotel did not inform in advance about extra paying for city tax €1.21 per person per night either.

    Amazing location and staff”

    The location of the hotel is ideal, just off La Rambla on a quiet street. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and the rooms are spotless. We were in a junior room, which was tiny but suited our needs perfectly since we were mostly there to sleep and shower. Is recommend one of the larger rooms if you intend to spend more time in the room.

    Great hotel a step from La Rambla”

    The hotel was ideally located for La Rambla being a short walk to Place Reial, the Market and the marina. We chose this for location and roof top terrace with pool and subbed area. The space upstairs could be used more for sun beds but not everyone is a sun worshipper like our older children, but that also added to us being out most of the time in Barcelona. The pool is a nice little chill out area with great bar staff who are a very attentive at all times. The reception staff were also available with good information, especially at the time we arrived there was a city wide taxi strike, we had to make arrangements to get to the airport by Metro which is a breeze, the Metro being 200 yards from the hotel - 2 stops away. The only bad thing was the breakfast, we were hurried out of the breakfast by the staff beginning to take everything away at 10:40. We had breakfast that morning as it was our daughters 20th birthday and the staff had. I respect to allow us Breakfast.

    Excellent Location”

    We stayed here the day after the terrorist attacks and the mood was very sad. We still enjoyed our stay and made the most of every day. The hotel is very nice but there were some inconsiderate guests talking outside the rooms in the early hours of the morning or late at night. Our room was next to the lift so I suppose we had more people passing. Other than that the terrace is lovely. The pool is very small and more for a dip than a swim, we didn't use it or see anyone using it. The staff on reception were very good. We stayed at this hotel room only. It is just off Las Ramblas and there are lots of cafes and restaurants on the street. My only warning is don't book taxi's through the hotel for the airport, use uber or the aerobus as the average taxi price is €25. We had no choice as the aerobus or the metro was closed as we travelled early morning 3am. The aerobus cost us around €5 each. The taxi driver charged us €40 back to the airport. When I questioned why so much he said sorry I don't understand English. He was talking fine when we got in the taxi and was chatting. Grrrrr! Rip off taxis.

    Small but very modern and clean room, our window was facing the next building, being in the block of them do not expect any great views. It was fine for us though, as we only used at night. Location is very good and in the middle of La Rambla with lots of shopping and eating places around. As being advised, we were careful with valets and cameras though, apparently Barcelona well known for pocket picketing. Staff is very helpful, internal hotel design is impressive, price is reasonable.

    First time in Barcelona and didn't know what to expect. However, I did stay in two different hotel including this one. So my comment will be more of a comparison between the two and what I see around the area. This is great value for the money. It's is not a run down place. However, you do see signs of wear and tear if you look close enough. It looks modern...both in the lobby and in the room. The room is a little small for what I'm used to but this appears to be typical (as I paid extra to get the biggest room there is in another hotel and that room wasn't much bigger). It resides in the middle of a stretch of a busy/main street so you can walk to most places like tourist sites, shopping, bus terminal, dock.
