AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! Price for this hotel was more then we wanted to spend; however, it was our honeymoon and we wanted to take advantage of the location. This hotel....is perfectly placed on La Rambla and walking distance to everywhere. The pool is unbelievable, on the rooftop with bar and lots of seating. We didn't notice breakfast but we also...

We stayed one night at Hotel 1898 but I wish I had stayed longer. This hotel is a modern boutique hotel and is conveniently located near the center of Barcelona's Ramblas. The guest rooms and bathroom were beautiful, clean and spacious. The front desk staff was extremely helpful giving us directions and getting tickets for us. The lobby has comfortable... More

This Hotel is the one to stay in in Barca. Right in the middle of the action but still secluded. A must is the breakfast on the roof terrace, worth the money. The staff will also book any trips for you and the open top bus is great value for money. We had a 3 day stay which is just... More

This was our 1st Trip to Spain, so we weren't sure what to expect. We upgraded our original hotel to H1898 based on the roof top swimming pool. It was well worth the money. It's a super cute, ultra lux boutique hotel. No detail is overlooked. The location is fantastic, you're right in the middle of things. The rooftop terrace... More

If you want a great hotel on Las Rambles with walking distance to El Born and Barri Gothi shops and restaurants, this is the place. Particularly if you include the wonderful seventh floor roof top swimming pool, restaurant and bar with sweeping views of Barcelona! Lounging on the sofas and enjoying some wine in the afternoon or an evening after... More

Four nights at this wonderful hotel in a fabulous location. All the staff were professional, helpful and really friendly. The hotel was spotlessly clean, our room was generously proportioned and very well equipped. Food in the restaurant was first class and reasonably priced. We would not hesitate to recommend H1898.

This property was well situated on La Rambla just a couple of blocks south of the Catalunya Plaza. The hotel is very stylish and the staff very helpful. The pool is a great respite from the chaotic La Rambla below. The only issue we had involved housekeeping working until nearly midnight. While we understand that in Spain folk operate on... 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.
