Super clean rooms with a fantastic view. The top of the hotel had a bar and 360 degree seating to view the city. The best part is it's located in the center of town with walking distance to all kinds of neat places.

Stayed in the penthouse suite here and we were amazed. The sheer scale of the suite blew us away - we weren't expecting own private pool in such a fantastic central location. The bathroom was top notch, and the basement spa was incredible!! I HIGHLY recommend H1898 for a honeymoon or just a romantic getaway.

This has to be the best hotel in Barcelona..perfect location right in the heart of everything.the rooftop pool area and underground spa are amazing..and the staff are 100%.my one fault was the pricey continental breakfast at around 50euros for two but don't let it put you off there are lots of places locally with great food...

I was very surprised to read some recent reviews complaining about the noise because one of the things I will take away from my recent stay at 1898 is the sheer tranquillity and relaxation the hotel offers. We stayed on the third floor overlooking Le Meridien next door (so above the side entrance to the hotel), and heard no noise... More

Big and tastefully decorated room and bathroom (we stayed in a Privilege room, Nr 238). SPA very nice, Pool just about large enough Fantastic rooftop terrace. Very friendly reception Only Problem: Windows do Not offer enough Noise Protection. I will be back but will chose a room on the 5th floor.

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
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.
