“roof top bar is AMAZING”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

wesome hotel in Barcelona, right on the very touristy strip of La Rambla, but the location is so central, you can deal with the hoards of tourists. :) The hotel is so clean and luxurious, it is a nice break from the chaos that is outside. The rooftop bar is great - obviously the drinks are a bit pricey, but worth it for the views.

Room Tip: my friend was staying in the hotel and got one of the top rooms , all good but a bit too small so i...

the hotel is on Las Ramblas and easy walking distance to most cites, great restaurants and the wharf. the staff was very helpful and the rooms were nice and clean. The roof top pool is heated in the winter and there is an enclosed pool in the spa area which resembles a Turkish bath. The area where the hotel is located is relatively safe.
The market is within 2 blocks. The high end shops are within 4 blocks and the wharf is about 6 blocks.

Everything at H1898 from arrival to departure was perfect, our second time staying here and it just gets better each time! Location is perfect, central to everything, bus tours, walking tours, the market just ideal to step out onto las ramblas. The hotel itself is trendy and comfortable, the spa outstanding and relaxing. The roof terrace is a perfect place to unwind and enjoy the city view with a cocktail or two..... The staff are amazing, and nothing is too much trouble. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

Breakfast deserves its own line - nothing compares to the choices and quality available !!!!

The location on the Rambla is excellent since many major sights are within walking distance, e.g. the street itself, the Cathedral, the fabulous Picasso Museum, Palao de Musica, Lyceu, Museum of Contemporary Art and the old town at large with its many and varied traditional shops (candles, hats, espadrilles, pastry, knives, antiques, ham). We didn't try the breakfast at the hotel, since it is was so much nicer to got out in the mild winter sun and have breakfast at the famous bocqueria market: stalls offer a huge selection of fresh fruit juices for 1 euro a glass and you can have coffee and a croissant or ham sandwich at the coffee bars around.
Don't miss the hotel's roof terrace with the pool (only 1 m deep, but large enough for a quick outdoor swim in mid winter).

4th time here and every time we like it better.
The spa is great, the staff is exceptional, every detail is classy. Bed is a very generous size and comfortable.
Location is great, you may want to have breakfast at the nearby Bar/Patisserie Escribà. Within walking distance of the Barrio Gotico, Placa Reial and the excitement of the Rambla!
Did I say we love it?
