Don't know a hotel in Barcelona, but have been to Peniscola and it was very pretty. It's a small place with a large bay, you get there by bus from the train station (20 min.). Just get off at the town and ask around. Some of the places are very loud due to bands playing at night. But it's quite cheap.
You can expect a family holiday resort. It's not a backpackers place.

I believe that this is an independent third-party from www.timeout.com - - it doesn't sound like copy written by the hotel itself, and all in all it sounds pretty favorable:

The Hotel España, in the Raval just off the Rambla, is a landmark of Modernista architecture, ranking almost with the Palau de la Música in renown. The lower floors were designed by Domènech i Montaner in 1902: the main restaurant, in which a good lunch menu is available, is decorated with floral motifs in tile and elaborate woodwork, while beyond it is a larger dining room, with extravagant murals of river-nymphs by Ramon Casas, also in tiles. In the adjoining bar, there is a huge fireplace by sculptor Eusebi Arnau. After these rooms, the more modern guest rooms can be a disappointment, but several open on to a bright interior patio. Book well in advance, as it is regularly full.

Best wishes,

Rex
