The hotel is located on La Rambla. A great central location, and very close to shops and the narrow streets of the old town where you can shop until your heart's content. Restaurants are nearby if you want to eat out, although we chose to travel a bit further a field. The room on the second floor was comfortable, although... More

I stayed here with my wife for two nights, having previously stayed here two times previously. It was fine until one unpleasant event at breakfast, where a waiter in spanish (assuming we could not speak the language) elected to make fun of my wife putting 'too much' fruit on her plate (for the record, it was two pinapple slices and...

Lovely place! Absolutely did not expect it as much perfect as it is. Stayed just for one night, but the intelligency, charm and classiness of the house delivered very great experience. Just right in the central of buzzling La Rambla, 10 minutes walk to the yacht harbour following by the sea coast.

My partner took me here for my birthday and I have to say it was bliss. The location is perfect to get to all the sites and has 2 metro lines right next to it. The hotel itself was beautiful. The terrace provides an great view of the city while relaxing in a heated pool or if you prefer sipping... More

I visited this hotel on a short-break with my wife. The hotel is 30 minutes from the airport and it cost 27 Euros in the taxi to take us to the front door, which is right in the heart of Las Ramblas. The hotel is immaculate but has a real authentic old fashioned feel about. The room was a little... More

Totally loved this location. So close to everything in La Rambla and a major metro station. I have stayed in "sister" hotels (same management company) before while staying in Barcelona but I think this is the best location for a traveler who doesn't mind the action and crowds of La Rambla. The rooms are standard "european" style. Small and functional... More

This hotel is simply amazing. Located directly in the middle of Las Ramblas, you couldn't beat the location. We were able to walk to most of the sites we wanted to see which was really nice. The rooms have huge ceilings and everything you need. Soft and fluffy bathrobes and slippers and a bed that you could sleep in forever.... More

We stayed at this hotel with a tour group so we didn't get the best rooms, only to the 4th floor. Beautifully decorated, tho a little dark as our room faced a light well and we only had a skinny window. Our shower didn't work so next morning we were given another room on 4th floor which had a double... More

Just come back from three nights at the H1898 and it was near faultless. We had a superior room on the 6th floor with great views over to Montjuic. The roof top bar / pool area was a fantastic place to watch the sun go down - even in November when it was still 20c. Lovely. Big bed in the... More
