“One night was just not enough”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Loved this hotel but just didn't have time to do it justice. Definitely worth going back for a longer visit. Perfect location, just a few hundred yards away from the amazing market place on las ramblas. Great breakfast and an amazing buffet of "nibbles" serves to our party before we went out for dinner. Rooms ample in size and beds really comfy. The whole atmosphere of this hotel is classy and relaxed. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Check that your room has a full shower. I had a twin room with bath and just a hand held shower. Was...

This hotel is located in a very busy tourist part of the Barcelona. There was a very nice Baazar very close to the hotel. bus station was 2 min walk. also U are able walk to beach, I say 10 min walk. a lots of restaurant are close. Our room was very large in compare to our room in Madrid (ME hotel). It was also very clean. the front desk were very friendly and helpful. overall we liked our hotel very much and if we go back we would like to stay there again.

Room Tip: we asked the front desk and they upgrade us. U only need to ask them, if they have available I guess...

Love any Hotel that has a Pillow Menu and Starbucks next door! Spacious and Bright Corner Room on the 3rd Floor overlooking Las Ramblas was great but you did hear a bit of street noise, may want to ask for higher floor. We liked watching the hustle and bustle of Las Ramblas though. Rooftop pool and terrace, indoor spa, chocolates every night. Great location, walk to Plaza Catalunya, restaurants, sites, only 5-10 minute walk to Cathedral (loved hearing the bells each day) and 5 more to Picasso Museum. ATMs and Metro nearby. Full Breakfast was amazing. Great restaurant Luzia located on the corner near lobby, excellent food there. Tell your cab driver Le Meridien (which is right next door) otherwise they drive right past this Classic and stately hotel.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are spacious and bright, rooms overlooking Las Ramblas are fun but if you are a light s...

First of all thank you for taking your time and sharing with us your high opinion about your experience with us on TA.

We are glad that you could enjoy the city from every single corner since as mentioned by yourself we are right in centre and everything could be reach walking, with the subway or short taxi’s drive.

Look forward to welcoming you again at the H1898.

Our stay in this hotel was exceptional, the staff very friendly and knowledgeable and the room amazing (even got a free upgrade). The only thing that I would say is that the Breakfast are quite expensive (25EUR per person).

I loved this hotel. I only stayed there for 1 night as I joined my girlfriend on her business trip but I managed to check everything that hotel has to offer. Great spa, swimming pool, gym,great view from the roof terrace plus the swimming in the pool there. Everything seems to be spot on.
Can only recommend
I paid extra for the breakfast and that was a proper treat. Thing that you don't know what to choose first.

This was a wonderful hotel. The staff was extremely pleasant and very helpful. They have a fabulous free indoor pool, sauna, and steam room. I was there on my birthday. When my daughter and I returned from dinner, there was a bottle of champagne and a lovely note in our room.
In addition, it is centrally located, but not noisy. An added bonus were the delicious chocolates in our room, a TV that translated Spanish to English, and reliable wifi.
I would most definitely return.

Stayed at the Hotel 1898 for Mobile World Congress in Feb 2014. My room was quite large with all the amenities including a very good bathroom with tub and shower. Bed, linens and pillows were also very upscale. The only noisy thing about the hotel was that when the subway went under the hotel, you could feel the vibrations. The location in terms of restaurants, stores, walking is excellent. I had a lot of room service while I was there. The service was excellent, but the menu was quite limited.
