We read reviews on this hotel so expected the small rooms and the alley to walk down to get to the room. None of this came as a surprise. However the location and the beauty of this hotel far outways those small issues. If you want to be on the heart of the ramblas and feel like you are staying...

We loved this hotel. We were offered an upgrade to the Ramblas Suite & it was superb with its own lounge area and large terrace. Free, fast wifi, excellent service and food together with a fabulous location. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of April. Tucked down a side street off La Ramblas, this hotel is beautiful, they have maintained the historic aspects of the building but modernised it very sympathetically. We had a boutique room which was lovely, staff were great especially the barman on the roof terrace, which is one of the...

Fabulous hotel in a perfect location just off La Rambla. Lovely boutique style rooms although the hotel is stylishly older. Rooftop bar a must for cocktails. Staff excellent. No complaints whatsoever.

Great location in the Gothic and surrounding areas of Barcelona. Many attractions can be reached by foot. The hotel is modern and well-appointed but the only real drawback of our otherwise quiet room (though a bit small for extended stays) was the awkwardly designed bathroom especially the internal glass doors and lack of fan-forced ventilation above the shower or toilet...

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 4 Star Superior Hotel Espana is located in the heart of Barcelona's historic centre, adjacent to La Rambla, the Gran Teatre del Liceu and the Gothic Quarter. Opened in 1859, it was later renovated by the celebrated modernist architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner. The hotel has always been considered a little gem of Barcelona modernism. Completely renovated in 2010, it combines modern interior design with the classicism of a nineteenth century building. The hotel's restaurant service is under the management of the chef Martin Berasategui. ... more   less
