Great Stay

We stayed at Hotel 1898 on a Saturday before a cruise and a Sunday after the cruise. My wife and I agreed that it was the nicest hotel we've ever stayed in. The rooms were large, beautiful, and had amazing bathrooms. The staff spoke great English and the location can't be beat. The only negatives were some noise issues. In our first room, there was a strange creaking that repeated off and on consistently. The second room had a great view of Las Ramblas, but we could hear (and feel) the metro go by underground even though we were on the 3rd floor. Neither of those things kept us up, but at an expensive hotel those shouldn't happen.

Centrally-located relaxing retreat

Awesome hotel with a fantastic location in the center of everything. However, with the rooftop pool/bar/lounge area combined with the basement pool/spa it's hard to leave the hotel to go enjoy everything Barcelona has!

Don't eat on La Rambla, walk just slightly off the road to the west to find way better places much cheaper!

Perfect First Visit to Barcelona

The hotel is located in a perfect location, right on Les Rambles. You can walk to most of the main attractions or take a bus. The hotel has two pools, the outdoor pool on the 7th floor overlooks Barcelona. Gorgeous views. Recommend getting a chair early as there aren't very many. There is also a great bar (pricey) up by the pool. Check in/check out was very fast. Only complaint would be the AC did not seem to work all the time.
