Great location on Las Ramblas and steps from the Mercat de la Boqueria; easy walking distance to the beach and many sights. We had an interior courtyard room and it was a great size, huge comfortable bed, complimentary tea service in the room, and nice bathroom. We were on our honeymoon and after we arrived they delivered a complimentary bottle... More

Just back from a 4 night stay and was really impressed with this hotel. Absolutely spotless, really cool design and perfect service. Was a bit unsure before I arrived due to being on Las Ramblas, but it is actually a perfect location to reach everything in the city. There is a stunning roof terrace and pool, and also a very...

We originally were booked in at the Soho Hotel but due to water problems were transferred to H1898 the very best thing that could have happened to us. This is up there with the best hotels we have ever stayed at. The location , the room ( at the back) was fabulous and the bathrooms sumptuous. The rooftop terrace and... More

Right on la Rambla so very central. Can be a bit noisy but would still recommend street facing rooms. Breakfast was excellent  as was the tapas evening menu. Fabulous 360degree roof top terrace looking out over Barcelona & the cathedral. The terrace is also good for a swim or evening cocktails & tapas. Just as well there are instructions on... More

I was looking for a chic hotel centrally located in Barcelona. Thank God a friend suggested Hotel1898! This hotel is located right on La Rambla within walking distance from most of the major tourist attractions. This was the perfect location for my first time in Barca. However, the crowds and seediness of las ramblas quickly wore on me and next... More

The rooms are very luxurious, the breakfast buffet is the largest and best I've ever seen. Make a reservation for the breakfast at the rooftop terrace though, it is exceptional. The rooftop pool is also great. It is a perfect place to explore the city.

Here are just a few....hotel is very centrally located just off the Rambla, so in shooting distance of the whole city. From the moment you step through the door, it's chic, calming and exciting. Roof terrace with its views is fabulous - relax with a beer, or take a dip in the (rather chilly) rooftop pool. Breakfast is extensive, if... More

We stayed here on our first visit to Barcelona and it really made the stay. The hotel was perfectly placed on the Rambla Catalyunya. The room was clean spacious and had dark cane furniture reminiscent of Raffles Hotel and for some evoquing the Colonnial style of the East India company. There was a nice cafe/restaurant/juice bar at the back in... 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.
