Hotel Espanya

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 22, 2007

If you want somewhere centrally located, cheap and friendly then this is the hotel for you. Don't expect too much more though as the rooms are pretty dire. Although clean they aren't particularly nice. To access ours we had to walk along a kind of balcony which felt really unsafe and if you suffer from vertigo I would definitely advise asking for a ground floor room.

We stayed there while going to the Sonar festival and wouldn't recommend the place to being too conducive in getting ride of a hangover - you don't really want to stay in the rooms more than you have to!

However if you are looking for a place just to rest your head rather than enjoying the room then none of that will matter too much to you. The staff are incredibly friendly and the street it is on feels safe. It is seconds from la ramblas and about a 10 minute walk to the port. It is 5 minutes from placa de catalonya where the airport bus stops.

In summary if you are looking for somewhere cheap, central and not of a particularly high standard then this place will do you however if you are looking for luxury I would advise heading elsewhere.

Unique Quality: Traditionally designd restaurant
