We chose this hotel for an extended weekend. It is completely in the center, so you can walk everywhere, or use a taxi. We chose the better category of the hotel and got an amazing room with a terrace, swimming pool and wonderful views. Unfortunately, the pool can no longer be used in November. The room was large and perfectly equipped. Everything was above our expectations. Unfortunately breakfast is not included and must be paid. It is quite expensive, but excellent. We will be happy to return to this hotel!
A very warm welcome from the reception staff set the tone for a lovely stay in early March 2020. Conveniently located, this hotel is clean, well maintained and is a calm oasis to the bustle of the la Rambla. The generous breakfast was a treat not to be missed. The cheese board was impressive and so was the tea selection. The staff, Ana and Vanessa, were efficient and friendly. Housekeeping was excellent at keeping our room fresh. The spa and gym, though small, were well appointed and spotless. The treadmill was was pretty new and fun to use. My husband and I most enjoyed relaxing in the lobby with after dinner drinks, snacks, listening to music, and watching the world go by. This visit is a treasured pre-COVID memory. Thank you, Hotel 1898; we hope to return.
This is a fantastic hotel. Booked direct for the best price. Upon arrival all was very efficient with the lovely reception staff. Booked some tours direct through them including a footie match between Barcelona and Arsenal which my sons loved. We had 2 superior double rooms which were spacious and very well maintained. Bathrooms were modern but traditional. Plenty of toiletries. Breakfast was superb and the rooftop bar and pool was so relaxing. After spending the day sight seeing visiting the spa is a must to relax those tired legs! The hotel is also central to all the sights. We loved this hotel. Highly recommended.
This was now the fourth time we've stayed at H1898, and we are never disappointed! All staff are always so kind, welcoming, and attentive. The rooftop bar team is led by an awesome woman (I unfortunately have forgotten her name, but not her smile!) who thoughtfully takes care of us and our little son every visit. The front desk team and valets are equally as forthcoming and helpful. The decor is modern and luxurious. The spa is excellent. The cocktails are yummy. I could go on and on. We hope to go back again soon!
Stayed here just before the Covid outbreak in March and it was a great hotel. Location was amazing being a five minute walk from Plaça De Catalunya where we TMB metro rode in and Aerobus’ed out from. Both trips about €6 and 30 mins from the airport Right on La Rambla so everything is either within a 15 min walk or a short metro ride which is only €10 for 8 tickets. Staff are amazing, reception are very helpful, restaurant staff at breakfast (particularly Anna) made us feel very welcome, room service was quick, bar staff on the roof terrace were cool and relaxed and the rooms were cleaned immaculately every day. I guess the biggest recommendation would be that we would stay here again the next time we go to Barcelona
