The Hotel

Hotel España is a 4* Luxury Hotel located right in the historical heart of Barcelona, next to Ramblas, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, La Boquería market…  and many other places of interest, which make Barcelona one of Europe's most cosmopolitan cities.

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.

Your hotel in Las Ramblas - Barcelona city center

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.

Barcelona, despite its size, is an easy city to navigate. As long as you have a Hotel in Barcelona city centre, you will be able to visit the main tourist attractions on foot. You can choose to use the metro or the bus system too, if you are not a great walker, as these all depart from Plaza Catalunya. Barcelona has an excellent public transport system, and when you walk out of your Hotel in Barcelona city centre the metro is easy to find.
