Very nice hotel, centrally located

We stayed 6 nights in Barcelona and never regretted having chosen 1898 Hotel Barcelona. Everything was modern and clean. The room was a good size, the bathroom functional (unlike many other European hotels similarly priced), but the best part was coming back to the rooftop pool and bar at the end of each (hot) day. Only complaint at all was weak wi-fi in the room, which was often spotty.

Best Hotel We Have Stayed At

My wife and I have been blessed to do a fair amount of traveling in the US and abroad. We have stayed at some exceptional hotels, but the experience we had staying at the H1898 in Barcelona tops them all. This is a true gem, run in a manner that makes guests feel like royalty. When we return once again to Barcelona, we will stay at the H1898. We give this hotel the highest recommendation possible.

Have a meal at Caracoles, one of the oldest restaurants in Barcelona. There are numerous reasons they have been in business since 1835. You will not be disappointed!

Brilliant Honeymoon

The hotel is a quiet and luxurious oasis perfectly situated on La Rambla. Rooms are nice and quiet considering the location and staff are very helpful. The rooftop terrace and pool is the highlight of this excellent hotel with amazing views over the entire city.

Exceptional hotel

Beautiful hotel right in the heart of La Rambla, close to Metro. Spectacular subterranean pool, clean, comfortable room, excellent staff. Drinks and restaurants are pricey though.

1898 Hotel

Perfect location if you want the best of the dining/shopping/club scene. Was able to walk everywhere! The hotel rooms are small, but comfortable. Great value. Would definitely stay there again!

Excellent location and amenities

Located right on Las Rambla so you are in the middle of everything. Starbucks next door to maintain some connection to home (assuming that you are from home). Nice restaurants nearby. A very short distance from Playa Catalunya from where the metro and buses (including a direct one to and from the airport) are readily accessible. Two nice touches: tea time everyday between 5-7pm and the rooftop pool/lounge/bar. Tea time is complimentary and allows for one to just chill out in the lobby lounge on the comfortable couches. The rooftop lounge area is also a nice place to chill and is really nice on a pleasant night. Clean rooms although some are small with a king bed dominating the space. Also, rooms facing the courtyard can be dark with little sunlight and really no view.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Don't get the Barcelona card unless you plan to visit a boatload of museums and such. To get around the city, it seems the tourist bus card (can't remember the official name) is a better way to go since it has routes that are along the major sites in the city and therefore much more predictable. Unless you like unpredictability and figuring out maps...
