Hotel 1898

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff is absolutely fabulous, hotel is clean and perfectly situated in the area. We are staying again on March and thinking of getting one of the rooms with the heated pools.

We reached at 10am and they had our room ready and let us check in. So nice after a long journey. The location was excellent; 5 min walk from aerobus stop. The area is VERY touristy but it’s centrally located so you can walk everywhere (3 mins to la boqueria, 10mins to the beach, 5 mins to gothic quarter, 40 min walk to la Sagrada Familia). The staff were welcoming and they left little treats on our bed each day. The bathroom wasn’t my style (black marble) but it was very clean and good counter space to get ready. The only issue I had was the blow dryer seemed outdated. Overall, it had a very boutique feel.

Though I am not a fan of European showers every other aspect of this hotel was good. Good location, nice room, The bed was kind of hard but for the five days we were there it was serviceable. The location was great and lots of good spots were a short walk.

Great amenities, close to the action on Las ramblas, and fun atmosphere on the rooftop.

This was the second time we have stayed at this hotel. The staff is amazing, the location is even better. The view from the rooftop pool and lounge area is amazing and open late for drinks. The staff went out of their way to serve us things that weren't even on the late night menu because we were hotel guests. The rooms are beautiful as well.

In two weeks in southern France and Catalonia, this was our favorite hotel by far. Great location, great rooftop pool, very clean and modern rooms, and extremely comfortable beds.

Located on Las Ramblas, Hotel 1898 is incredibly centrally located. We walked to almost every major attraction in the city because the of the hotel's premier location. And even though you are situated on the busy Ramblas, the noise level was rarely ever an issue when we found ourselves napping midday or sleeping late at night. The hotel staff were amiable, organized, and truly went above and beyond to accommodate us. Every day, the concierge would print our online tickets for whatever venue we booked the night before, and sometimes they even brought them up to our room minutes after we sent them an email!! The cleaning staff were impeccable. The rooms were cleaned thoroughly and truly made us feel warm and cozy each time we came back to the room. And on the rare occasion that we came back at an awkward time missed our room being serviced, the front desk or the cleaning staff themselves would make it a point to service our room later on, even if it was in the evening when we went back out again -- service we've never experienced before :)

Wonderful rooftop terrace. Great view of Barcelona. Good breakfast. Impeccable service. Restaurant provided great meals of good value. Had an enjoyable stay.

great location, very helpful staff,close to main Metro station, within walking distance of most major attractions,many nice restaurants nearby, room was large,very comfortable- a great place to stay. would definitly stay here again.

This Hotel is located in the center of Las Ramblas. A short distance walk to many of the nearby hotspots. Our stay in this Hotel was superb. The Hotel itself is very elegant and the rooms are clean. The staff is eager to help and will do the best that they can to accommodate their customers. Even though it is rated 4 stars you feel like you are staying in a 5 star hotel. The indoor pool and spa is excellent for relaxation. If we ever return to Barcelona we will not consider staying anywhere else.

This was a very nice hotel in a great location. It was close to many restaurants/cafes and there was a music festival in the plaza within easy walking distance. The room was very nice with great staff service. The beach is within walking distance for those who want to walk - or it is easy to catch a cab and get to the beaches. Les Rambles was a beautiful location with a wide walking area between the two lanes of traffic.

The Hotel 1898 is very elegant, yet modern. It is in the best location in Barcelona, right on La Rambla. The rooftop bar and tapas is lovely. The only downsides were a very small room and that half of the rooftop bar was usually reserved for private groups- so hard to get a spot.

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.

Beautiful hotel with a great rooftop pool.. best rooftop bar in Barca.. the most amazing beds I have ever slept in any hotel!

stayed in this hotel 4 nights-very good location,comfortable rooms....Fantasticall restaurant on the 1-sf floor thanks a lot

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.

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.

Fantastic hotel in prime location, right on La Rambla. Excellent area for shopping, dining and sightseeing. Great staff, comfortable rooms, and afternoon tea!

Nice place that is close to shopping and easy walking distance to sites.

The hotel is beautiful and provides for every comfort. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Its location was perfect. Would highly recommend it to anyone.
