Hotel 1898 was an excellent choice for our 3 day stay in Barcelona. Hotel is conveniently located on the Rambla. Despite being right in the middle of everything (our room was on the third floor, overlooking the busy street), the rooms are pindrop quiet. Rooms are comfortable, large (for European standards), and the bathrooms superb. Highlights include the rooftop pool... More

This hotel gives the feel of a old luxury hotel but all amenities nod rooms are modern. Very nice and efficient staff. Only bummer was the two single beds jammed together to form a king bed. Bad. I wish hotels would not do this as the guest feel cheated

This hotel is superb. Our car pulled up early evening on Monday and our bags were whisked off to our room. Check in was smooth and easy. Our superior room was large and amazingly well equipped. Our little balcony overlooking a side street was beautiful with little cafés. The bed is massive and had bathrobes and plenty of bathroom essentials.... More

This hotel is perfectly located on La Rambla making it super easy to access so many great spots! The hotel itself was very nice, comfortable & easy to navigate. The staff was impeccable & extremely accommodating - one of the best experiences we've had in all our travels. Lots of amenities in the room (robes, slippers, shaving kit, mini sewing... More

We found the room well-appointed, despite warnings it would be noisy we had no problems whatsoever. We loved spending time on the rooftop bar in the evenings, and found the advice from the concierge to be spot on regarding dining suggestions! Would love to return sometime soon!

Recently stayed at H1898. Very comfortable beds and loved the ambiance of the hotel. Located on Las Ramblas so is close to on and off buses, taxis, and restaurants. Just a walk across Las Ramblas is the Goth area which is a treasure for shopping, taking in sights and more great food. The roof top restaurant offers comfortable couches and... More

My daughter and I just returned Saturday from a wonderful stay at this hotel. It is a lovely oasis on busy La Rambla that is centrally located and within walking distance of many sites. It is not often that I can say that I can think of nothing that a hotel could do to improve my experience there, but that... 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.
