Stayed here in August 2014 for 5 nights with my girlfriend and thought it was brilliant. The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. Checking in and out were not a problem, despite what I have seen in other reviews. We stayed in a Privilege room on the corner of the building, looking out onto La Ramblas. I... More

Central location on La Ramblas, the facilities are all very good - from the rooftop terrace and pool to the sub-terranean pool, gym and spa. All areas of the hotel have character - rooms are uncomplicated, yet have all of the facilities. Cleanliness is exemplary.

The hotel is well located, very handsomely appointed and very clean. It is on the very busy Las Ramblas but when you enter the property you quickly forget this. Staff is knowledgable and efficient. Beautiful basement pool/spa and great rooftop pool and lounging area. Hotel is pricey.

The Hotel 1898 is in an excellent location right off La Rambla, but seems a world away. My husband and I stayed here the night before our cruise. Front desk service was very efficient. As a room was available we were able to check in before the official check in time which is greatly appreciated when arriving from an overnight... More

Fab View, from the rooftop terrace, tucked away off The Ramblas. Wedged between The Meridian Hotel, not advertised, but well worth a bottle of vino overlooking Barcelona. Wise to book a booth if you wish to visit after 8 or you'll not get the best views.

I am usually a budget traveler, but it was my sister's birthday, so we decided to splurge. This hotel was well worth it, in every way. The thing that impressed me the most was the bottle of champagne on ice and a happy birthday card to my sister when we arrived home after a day of site-seeing. It was so... More

We had 4 nights at the hotel, right in the middle of all the attractions and all the busy night life. Very interesting hotel, the room was a little bit smaller but lovely and clean, the bathroom was great.

The location - just off the Ramblas - is great for access to some of the best spots in Barcelona. The lobby is amazing, the staff genuinely helpful and pleasant, The room was amazing with great air-conditioning. The bed was massive and really comfortable. Rooms were refreshed twice a day. The rooftop terrace, pool area was stunning with great views... More
