I'm staying here right now. After being out for the day we come back at 2:30 and the room isn't cleaned. The main feature of the hotel -the roof top bar- was closed last night for a private function yet nobody advised us of this when we booked or when we checked in that afternoon. When we went to go...

H1898 is first class, from the moment you enter the air conditioned lobby and are met by the friendly staff you know that they will do their very best to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. The rooms are spacious , very clean and quiet , in spite of being on the Ramblas. We didn't dine in the hotel... More

Hotel 1898 is in the perfect location especially for folks coming to Barcelona for the first time. It's only steps the older city (Barri Gotic) and has easy access to the metro. The multi lingual staff is always pleasant and helpful. The breakfast buffet is amazing--as is the bar on the roof! Plus two pools--one outside on the roof and... More

This hotel is awesome. Yes it's right in the tourist area but if you are visiting Barcelona and want to see the sights then it's perfect. The rooms are a good size, modern and clean. Breakfast buffet is fantastic. They have a nice pool on the roof which of course gets busy as it's like an oasis in the middle... More

We stayed here in early July at the end of our Spain adventure. The hotel is beautiful. Although, when first trying to locate it the pictures from the Internet are not what you'll see. I guess that view is looking back? I'm not sure but since we were driving I passed the hotel once before seeing it. After a prompt... More

I was very impressed by the level of cleanliness, the friendliness of the staff, and the overall experience from this hotel. The rooftop terrace and pool were beautiful, and we enjoyed having dinner at the restaurant downstairs. On our last morning we had breakfast up on the roof, and we were very pleasantly surprised by the value we got for... More

I was here a year ago for 3 nights total before a cruise and can not explain to you the amount of class this hotel has. The old architecture from the outside and modern edge in the inside makes for an incredible atmosphere ! The staff were friendly and helpful! The location is absolutely fantastic, & the POOLS. I cannot... More

Spent a great 4 days here with my wife. Room was spotless, rooftop bar was a joy. Discount of 20% on drinks for residents. Staff very friendly and professional. Ate in restaurant one night but was disappointed as the place was empty bar one other table. Serious lack of atmosphere but food was good.

This was our second time staying at this hotel and once again it didn't disappoint. The staff are professional, friendly and kind. We were greeted with news that we'd been given a complimentary upgrade (always a good start to a trip I find) and the positive experiences just kept coming. I cannot recommend the rooftop bar and restaurant highly enough,... More

I stayed here for three night in July with my three adult children for a well-earned city break. From the moment we entered the premises we received maximum assistance from the desk and lobby staff within seconds. This attitude was prevalent throughout the hotel and for the duration of our stay. Together with the excellent facilities, delightful rooftop eating area,... More
