The Hotel España building originally dates from 1859 and it was first opened under the name Fonda de España. It was later renovated by the celebrated modernist architect Lluis Domènech i Montaner in the early twentieth century with the collaboration of Eusebi Arnau and Ramón Casas. The work was deservedly recognised by Barcelona City Council when, in 1904, who awarded the hotel with its Diploma of Honour for “best establishment decorated in the artistic-ornamental style” and its been always considered a jewel in the crown of Catalonian Modernism in the city of Barcelona.
Hotel España’s 2010 renovation project has recaptured the spirit that Domènech i Montaner first conceived for the hotel. The hotel’s modernist spaces have been restored to their original design, while, at the same time, installing the latest in technology, design and comfort with the principal objective of offering an exceptional personalised service and establishing the Hotel España as a 4 Star hotel of excellence in Barcelona’s Old Town.
The hotel offers 82 comfortable spacious rooms that combine modern interior design with the classicism of a nineteenth century building. The hotel’s restaurant service is under the management of the award-winning chef Martín Berasategui at the celebrated restaurant Fonda España.
