Fantastic views of the city. Extremely polite and friendly/welcoming staff. A pool and bar area fit for a celebrity and reasonably ish priced drinks. An oasis in a bustling centre. An awesome little find

My daughter and I stayed here in the summer. It was a beautiful hotel with some of the best staff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. We wanted to go to see a flamenco show, but we didn't want a touristy one so they recommended a more authentic one for us and we could't have been more pleased. It was a fantastic experience. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to stay. This hotel is close to everything, we walked everywhere!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous, even though it's right in the middle of the action.

My husband and I went here for our honeymoon and it was wonderful! We received an upgrade for our room and even received a welcome bottle of champagne. The hotel has a spa, rooftop bar, and pool. The location was perfect....right on las ramblas! It's not nosy as some people may say about las ramblas, unless you live on a farm. It is definitely one of the more expensive hotels but you only have a honeymoon once so it was well worth it! Can't stay in hostels forever.

We stayed here for one night at the end of our trip to Barcelona. We thoroughly enjoyed the rooftop terrace and pool, and thought that the Spa was really lovely.

The rooms are small but this is usual for European standards, however the bathroom was really quite spacious and luxurious.

Hotel 1989 is located at La Rambla, the most touristy street in Barcelona.

If you want luxury, this is the hotel to stay at.
The rooftop is amazing, it was soo good we spent way too much time there instead of exploring more of Barcelona:) But you get 360 degrees view of Barcelona from the roof top (if that counts). There is always a swimming pool on the roof!
The food is amazing at the hotel, AMAZING!
Rooms are beautiful, beds are huge!
Service is exceptional.

We were really happy there!

Room Tip: Make sure you dont stay in the room above kitchen, they work late and start super early. We had to s...

This hotel is the most stylish I have visited, the decor and ambience is perfect after the hustle and bustle of the streets of Barcelona. Once back to the hotel its hard to believe you are still in the city, the location is perfect. The rooftop pool is a great place to relax , few beds but we could always get one, fresh towels and good bar staff. On an evening the roopftop is a chill out bar which overlooks Barcelona lit up- the perfect end to a busy day. Overall I couldn't fault this hotel and would definately recommend.

Room Tip: Our room was next to the elevator I would not advise this if at all possible as could hear noise alt...

This is a very nice hotel with a perfect location. Most of all; the staff and the atmosphere are perfect. We have travelled a lot, this is the hotel we allways want to come back to.
The terrace on the roof is a perfect place to relaxe, with the pool, sunbeds, lovely daybeds and something good to drink and eat.
