A friend and I have just returned from a wonderful weekend in Barcelona staying at the 1898, we know the hotel and personally chose it as it is a favourite. It is in a brilliant location right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of the ramblas and Plaza Catalunya. The spa is great for a quick respite in the afternoon after walking around the city. The room was lovely, the only criticism I would have was that there was not enough drawers for clothes (one very small drawer) however that was a minor thing in what was just a lovely hotel. The rooftop pool and bar looked beautiful, although it was shut as we went out of season. The staff were friendly and helpful and there were added touches like turning down service with chocolates and strawberries served with the room service champagne, a pillow menu so you can choose which pillow you would like to sleep on that just made it that extra bit special. I would recommend and certainly go back...best hotel in Barcelona taking everything into consideration.
