First time visit to Barcelona and we were extremely pleased with this Hotel. Very pleasant staff who were also very helpful. A must do is enjoying breakfast on the rooftop area as is having a relaxing swim in the rooftop pool. Would definetly recommend this hotel for its location and top notch facilities.

Stayed at Hotel 1898 after cruise for one night. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready so they offered another room type. Our room was beautiful it had a terrace where we had our breakfast which was included in the price. Best pillows I have ever slept on you also get a choice of pillows. The bathroom was spacious...

This was a great location for our first trip to Barcelona - right on Las Ramblas next to La Boqueria, with short walking distances to the Gothic Quarter sights and not far from La Barceloneta. A modern hotel and the room was extremely spacious by Europe's standards and had all the amenities you'd need and more. I mean - a... More

I really couldn't have had a more perfectly located luxury hotel right in the center of Las Ramblas and so within extremely close walking distance to the beach and the other great sites Barcelona has to offer. It is extemely dark inside the hotel but this perfectly matches the gothic spanish style. I was worried about the noise from the... More

We were booked here when our boutique hotel in Barri Gothic had an emergency. It was only a one night stay. Front desk were not very well versed at check in on our rate and what was included etc. but after some wrangling we got the price and breakfast as arranged at the price of the other hotel. 1898 is...

Great location but not worth the price. The staff is there but not super helpful. They are charging ritz prices but when you ask for ritz services (reservations at a top restaurant) they are unable to deliver and dont really care. I was really disappointed with the staff. They were average but nobody went above and beyond like you see... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay at the 1898. We had a beautiful superior room on the 4th floor overlooking La Rambla. We're glad we were there in early June as the weather was very warm and sunny. It's the beginning of the summer season, so the city was busy, but it will get alot crazier soon.The hotel... More

There is really nothing negative to say about this hotel. Nice rooms, fantastic service. The staff is very service-minded. It is situated in the city center, on the Rambla, but on the back-side you will find a little plaza with an excellent Tapas restaurant and cafées, which will make you feel like you're in a smaller spanish town. As a... More

The hotel is excellent for its location, service quality, and ambiance. Obviously, when you are ready to pay this amount you expect all these to be at minimum this level, and nothing else to disturb you. However, there were few. Wi-fi connection in the room did not work properly. When we wanted to book a massage, we have been told... More

I took my mother to Hotel 1898 to celebrate her 60th birthday in January 2012. We stayed 3 nights in a Superior room, twin beds, non-smoking. The room we were allocated was clean and pleasant, with a ‘Juliet’ balcony on the corner, overlooking the side street and La Rambla. The room was small, certainly by US standards, but fairly typical... 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.
