Fantastic hotel. Beautiful decor. Helpful, friendly staff. Superb location in the heart of the city. Stylish rooms. Excellent service. Once you've done La Rambla, turn left out of the hotel for some really good restaurants that are slightly off the beaten track.

It is almost impossible to think that such a lovely hotel exists in the Ramblas. Beautifully styled throughout. Very welcoming courteous staff. Clean comfy quiet hotel rooms ( although the air-conditioning controls are difficult to locate) excellent restaurant. The breakfast menu is simply wonderful. Excellent high quality wifi. And then you step out of the front door straight onto the... More

Went there for a family reunion, a NY eve. Being up classed was the first surprise we had from the service. The room was spacious, very comfortable, the bathroom and particularly the tube were perfect for some relaxed moments after long days shopping around the city. The spa and pool were a plus, this cave ambiance was something else to... More

Stayed here Saturday, 14th March on a business trip and it happened to be my birthday which the hotel somehow knew and delivered a lovely bottle of sparkling cava to my room straight after checking. Wonderful hotel on the Ramblas.

Been here with my girlfriend for a city break. The location is awesome, just into La Rambla, close to Plaza Catalunya and metro, easy to go anywhere. The neighborhood is fantastic, lots of taverns and restaurants. The hotel itself is great, the style and the facilities (spa, gym, pool, sauna). The personnel is amable and helpful. We had a room...

I am sitting in the super comfy bed at h1898 as I write this review. Checked in yesterday. I am travelling from Australia and we have just spent 2 weeks in Morocco. Really nice to arrive to a super cool hotel after such a long trip. I was actually booked in at hotel DO before I found this one. Went... More

I absolutely love this hotel, it has a very masculine and classy personality. One wouldn't know from the exterior but the interiors, all of them are very spacious, an amazing bar next to the lobby is a great place for meetings and lounging. The rooms are big, clean, exquisite and elegant, as I was there in winter, I didn't try... More

Perfect hotel to set up a weekend in Barcelona. Though I was alone, here for a weekend while strattling two weeks of meetings in Europe, it would have also been a great place for a romantic weekend! Far more high end than I expected for such a reasonable price. Loved the luxe bathroom with embroidered towels and dark sumptuous bar/reception... More

I reviewed this hotel well when my husband and I stayed there in May 2012. However, when we went again in October 2014 I found that I didn't like it so much. The convenient location is still good, as is the breakfast (now with a coffee machine producing better coffee), and the bedroom was still spacious and comfortable, but our... More

Just come back from a 4 day break at this hotel and found it magnificent. Such grandeur and serenity on one of the busiest streets in the world and the best location to truly get the best out of barcelona. The spa is definitely worth the money and the rooms are lovely. So the reason I've only gave 4 stars,... More

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.
