Hotel is a really high standard for 4 star. Panoramic views of the city. Spotless everywhere with very professional and friendly staff. Beds were so comfy and the amenities are great, especially the heated indoor spa pool for cooler days! Can't leave a review without mentioning the location - eat, drink, shop, sight see all at the doorstep of the hotel. Really recommend!

The location is ideal in the center of the city allowing for easy travel. The reception is exceptional allowing us to check in very early to get on with our day. The two pools appear to be the best in the area (comparing pictures on Booking.com) with a rooftop pool with an exquisite view and a heated indoor pool/spa with incredible lights. The rooms are spacious and of great value. We would definitely stay here again!

I heartily recommend Hotel 1898 as a first class choice for your Barcelona base. Brilliantly located in the heart of La Ramblas ( apart from a little occasional metro rumble) the hotel exudes a genteel ambiance of olde worlde charm, style and beauty. The hotel entrance is discreet and opens into a vast, exotic space with an ever present,exquisite scent, which greets you every time you enter. Formerly a tobacco factory, the hotel retains a historical grandeur and lofty feel with a relaxing colour palette of chocolate, cherry and bronze with bold striped oversized sofas at ground floor level and poolside. Yes! There is a breathtakingly beautiful, rooftop pool, with ample decking, seating, gorgeous bar and a "WOW!" 360 degree view of Barcelona. Our bedchamber was sensational as we were lucky to be allocated a balconied Rambla view room. Throughout our stay, the manager, Roberto, was outstanding; charming, kind and helpful. On our last night we had a delicious rooftop dinner looking out wistfully over Barca for the last time - until we hurry back to Hotel 1898 as our "go to" base in this vibrant city.
