“Beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. It is right on the ramblas in the center of town. During my trip I visited Paris, Madrid and Barcelona. Barcelona was my favorite city. Beautiful palm trees, sea, and such a lively city. I was sick for a night during my visit and the hotel was wonderful in doing everything they could. Hotel is very modern, great breakfast buffet, comfortable bed and wonderful staff. I visited Lasagrada Familia and Palau de la musica, both were amazing must sees. Also did open air bus tour which takes you around the olympic facilities that was great as well.

Room Tip: All of the room looked unique, clean and roomy.

1898 Hotel Barcelona was perfectly located for everything we wanted to do while in Barcelona for five days. Given its place between Liceu and Catalunya Metro stations, my wife and I moved easily to the amazing museums, Gaudi casas, church and park, opera and concert halls, and other important sights. We found excellent, reasonably priced restaurants within comfortable walking distances (15 minutes), with the assistance of computer websites and local maps. The Boqueria market was a short stroll away and we had delightfully tasty breakfasts in our room every morning after picking out fresh fruit, cheese and croissants at the stalls. The hotel itself was spotless, pretty, comfortable and quiet despite the outside noise from La Ramblas. The well equipped , complimentary business center allowed for emails back home and any research we needed to do, as well as printing out air tickets in advance. Also, with a short walk from hotel, take in a concert at the Palau Nacional and find one of the many small, superior restaurants to walk to afterwards. In summary, 1898 Hotel Barcelona is a terrific place to stay.

Room Tip: For good night sleep, get room on side street off of La Rambla.

I've been back 3 times, in different seasons and have never been disappointed.
Great location
Staff incredibly helpful and professional
Rooms very comfortable and great lighting
Bathrooms offer more-than-usual amenities
Small Spa and lovely pool in basement. Tip: if you visit during peak season, try to take time out mid-morning because it's very busy in the evenings and early mornings

Room Tip: Hotel is right on the Ramblas which can be noisy. Rooms on higher floors less noisy, but whenever s...

Really great hotel if a little expensive. Location was perfect especially for a first time visitor. Spa facilities stunning and most relaxing. Most definetly will go back, something for everyone.

Room Tip: Would opt for a Superior room for more space, preferably not overlooking La Rambla unless on the hig...

We spent Christmas week in Barcelona at Hotel 1898. I cannot say enough great things about the hotel. The room was beautiful and the bathroom spacious and lovely. We enjoyed the lobby area, reading, and enjoying the bar for snacks and drinks. The staff was always helpful. The rooftop terrace was a very pleasant and well decorated. We would not hesitate to stay there again. I wish that all the hotels that we stay in were as nice.

Spent three days with my family in Barcelona, the hotel was a great oasis and the location was perfect for exploring the city.
