Hotel España, considered a little jewel of Catalonian Modernism, was originally opened in 1859 with the name of Fonda de España and then went on to be refurbished by the celebrated Modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, in the early 20th Century, with the collaboration of Eusebi Arnau and Ramón Casas.
The restoration project that the hotel underwent in 2010 has brought back the spirit conceived by Domènech i Montaner. The modernist spaces have been refurbished to their original design, and at the same time the hotel has been equipped with the latest technology, design and comfort.
The restaurant is located in the Modernist dining room originally designed and decorated by Domènech i Montaner, a rich environment of historical value in which the older features enhance and inspire the new.
The hotel, located right in the centre of Barcelona, has 82 comfortable rooms, the Fonda España restaurant run by the chef Martín Berasategui (12 Michelin stars), Arnau Room and Alaire Ramblas Terrace.
Open-air swimming pool located on the roof of the hotel, from where you have a panoramic view of the Ciutat Vella. A spacious solarium with loungers which invite you to relax right in the centre of the city. Open from May to October.
Free WIFI, gym near the hotel, Business Corner and rooms for meetings and events.
Named after the celebrated sculptor, Eusebi Arnau, whose splendid alabaster fireplace is the centrepiece of the bar. It is one of the most emblematic and attractive rooms in the hotel.
It currently houses one of the dining rooms of Fonda España Restaurant, which has given the Fonda greater amplitude and exclusivity.
Barcelona is one of those European cities where most of the action starts from one central hub. Barcelon’s central hub would be Las Ramblas, which is a very long pedestrian street, very popular amongst locals and visitors, leading into Catalunya Square on one end and into the Port Vell on the other. This could be one of the many reasons it is important to have your hotel in Las Ramblas. Hotel Espanya is located in the heart of Las Ramblas, just a short walk from Plaza Catalunya and all the main city attractions.
