The 4 Star Superior Hotel Espana is located in the heart of Barcelona's historic centre, adjacent to La Rambla, the Gran Teatre del Liceu and the Gothic Quarter. Opened in 1859, it was later renovated by the celebrated modernist architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner. The hotel has always been considered a little gem of Barcelona modernism. Completely renovated in 2010, it combines modern interior design with the classicism of a nineteenth century building. The hotel's restaurant service is under the management of the chef Martin Berasategui.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.

Hello fellow traveller. Breakfast was approx. AUD$30. It was good, fresh and plentiful. Apparently you can get omelettes too, although you need to ask as they are not displayed.

We didn’t travel with small people but I’m sure they will be able to offer a cot. Lovely hotel with friendly, helpful reception! We’ll definitely be back!

As another correspondent says, it is around 15 minutes from the hotel to the main cruise port, depending on traffic. But do check which port your cruise line uses. I know Seabourn moors closer to the city centre. The English spoken in the hotel is excellent and they can call a taxi for you.
