“Three Trips To Barcelona "This Is The One"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Great location, rooms are first class; stayed in a room with an outside terrace that was a great place to relax and enjoy morning coffee or evening drink. The staff was very attentive. The roof top pool and bar was a great place in the evening to have a drink and over look the city. The hotel was spotless.

Room Tip: Rooms with outdoor court yards are great

Spent a few days in May 2012
Great location & Room - friendly staff & good food.
But what made the difference was the roof pool & terrace was a fantastic add on/bonus.
When the sun shines it is a great spot to relax and experience a little calm from las ramblas.
Barcelona is a super city to visit.

Magnificient hotel with first rate staff and services. Our suite was spacious and functional and the bed was SO comfortable that we found ourselves sleeping in later each day than planned. We ended every night of sight-seeing with drinks on the roof-top, open-air lounge. A must visit on any stay in Barcelona.
The spa was first rate even though the gym was small. The indoor pool, steam and sauna were all wonderful.
For the high quality of this hotel we were disappointed by the dinner menu. Service was fine and the food tasty, but we would not return for dinner. The breakfast buffet however was extraordinary.

Room Tip: Spring for a suite, worth the stretch.

The hotel is brilliantly located in La Rambla close to transport, and walking distance to the 'old wharves' where you'll find great restaurants. The hotel itself is luxurious and the service is great. Only down side is that it can be quite noisy during the night as the hotel in located on the main street.

The Hotel 1898 is a perfect spot to explore Barcelona. Being right on the La Rambla, you can explore Barcelona easily by foot. We loved the modern chic decor of the room, lobby, the comfy beds, the pillow menu, the mood lighting in the room, roof top lounge and pool. After exploring all over the city, going up to the roof top patio for a drink or two is a must. The soothing jazz tunes make you relax and rejuvenate you to explore the evening. The mojitos were delicious! Would recommend this hotel 100%.

Stayed here for a week and overall was an excellent experience once I moved rooms. The first night I had a room facing Las Ramblas which rumbled all night with the sounds from the subway, the street, and the church bells. I literally wasn't able to sleep at all.

Customer service is very good at this hotel so they were able to change my room to the other side of the hotel which was so quiet.

Breakfast was too expensive at 23Euro for the buffet but there are so many options so close by for breakfast I was able to easily find other options.

The rooftop bar/pool is defintely a highlight with some of the best views of Barcelona from there.

Pros: Rooms are good sized, well appointed, nice toiletries, and the customer service is great.

Cons: Breakfast is extremely expensive however there are great choices nearby.

If I return to Barcelona I would defintely stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms facing Las Ramblas are extremely noisy. They shake and rumble from the subway underneath. The...
