We are spending three days here and it is our first time at the hotel. We knew the astonishing terrace and its view but not the hotel itself and we have to say that beside the fact that it is expensive (it is!), it really is worth it! The service is great, fast, polite and friendly. The food is good,...

We stayed at H1898 24th-26th August. I booked this through lastminute.com as a surprise weekend for my husbands 40th birthday. As we were arriving mid morning, I emailed the hotel asking if we could possibly check in early, on arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who not only checked us in early but also upgraded our room &...

This is a beautiful hotel, right in the heart of Barcelona on La Rambla. We arrived at 8am, and of course rooms were not available. Here is where the first hiccup occurred. Apparently, they are strictly TWO to a room. They saw we had our ten year-old daughter with us and right away the discussion ensued. They pulled out my...

My brother, sister and I offered 2 nights in one suite of the hotel at approximately 1000Euros per night to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our parents.

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.
