My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The room was quite small and it was a challenging at times to get around. The bed was so comfortable - just what you need after a long flight and lots of walking! The location is excellent. The pool and rooftop bar were really nice. Lovely staff who always... More

Hotel 1898 was in the perfect location! We literally walked everywhere, up and down La Rambla, to the Casa Batllo, to Barceloneta (the beach) and it is only a block from the Bocqueria which is incredible! The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly when we had an inquiry but otherwise they were hands off (which was kind... More

Such a great hotel. We were upgraded as we were on our honeymoon and the room was lovely. The rooftop pool and bar was very cool, with great views in every direction of the city. Cocktails were good too! We found the location really handy as right on Las Ramblas and near many shops and restaurants. However, the customer service... More

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

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.
