Why We Love This Hotel

  • A restored Art Nouveau jewel, just off Barcelona’s main boulevard
  • Restaurant serves highly regarded Catalan dishes
  • All rooms have free mini bars & Wi-Fi access
  • There's a chic rooftop pool & bar during summer months


With a rooftop pool and bar, this restored 19th-century travellers’ lodge is a surprise gem, hidden a few strides from Barcelona’s main drag, La Rambla. Look out for period features such as bronze coach lamps and Catalan inscriptions etched into the ground floor walls. The theme continues in the Fonda España restaurant, celebrated as much for its splendid Modernist murals as its Catalan cooking.

Hotel Espana Ramblas’ rooms have less architectural interest but are neat, functional and spacious enough with comfortable beds and high windows; the attractively tiled floors are their best feature. The contents of the mini bars are free, as is Wi-Fi and international and national newspapers for smartphones and tablets.

You’ll want to explore the shared spaces to get the full measure of this property’s restored Art Nouveau grandeur. Along with the cavorting mermaids in those exuberant dining room murals, don't miss the antique sculpted marble mantelpiece in the bar. A slightly creaky lift serving the four floors adds to the impression of a pleasant trip back in time to old Barcelona. From May-October, guests can head up to the rooftop for live music and cocktails or a take dip in the open-air pool.

At Fonda España, chef Xavier Sender updates Catalan classics with a lighter touch: pork trotters sit on the plate with sea cucumbers, for example, or meatballs alongside cuttlefish.

Located off a less seedy stretch of La Rambla, the hotel is within an easy walk of the Gothic Quarter, the heart of old Barcelona, and sights such as the La Boquería Market and the ornate Canaletes Fountain.
