We stayed at this hotel when life was normal and travel was fun. We are now considering travelling again and Barcelona is in our path so we started looking for options and memories flooded back, so I had to write this review as a thank you note and as an encouragement for the team which may have seen better times. I just wanted you to know that we had a fabulous time with you guys in May 2019. We loved the location, the services, the food but most importantly the staff that made us feel so welcomed and cosy when spending time in the lobby drinking a cocktail after dinner. We will be coming your way very soin hopefully!

Like others have said this hotel is like an oasis just off the busy La Rambla and very chilled and relaxing. My room was quite small but perfect, beds super comfy and great shower. The rooftop bar is fabulous! If you are not familiar with the city it is a perfect location for getting around as you are between the port and passeig de gracia and 2 minutes walk from the shops. Cannot wait to return!

I had nothing but trouble since I crossed the door. I had a feeling staff disliked me because of my nationality, they were rude at best and ruined my stay Room was average and not really nice or clean. I called service desk multiple times but each time problem was resolved something else came up. Loud noise from the metro (I think) was clearly heard in the room as well as everything that was happening outside the door. Shower required instruction (no, not a joke) and took ages to get even warm. I will never again say there!

We chose this hotel for an extended weekend. It is completely in the center, so you can walk everywhere, or use a taxi. We chose the better category of the hotel and got an amazing room with a terrace, swimming pool and wonderful views. Unfortunately, the pool can no longer be used in November. The room was large and perfectly equipped. Everything was above our expectations. Unfortunately breakfast is not included and must be paid. It is quite expensive, but excellent. We will be happy to return to this hotel!

A very warm welcome from the reception staff set the tone for a lovely stay in early March 2020. Conveniently located, this hotel is clean, well maintained and is a calm oasis to the bustle of the la Rambla. The generous breakfast was a treat not to be missed. The cheese board was impressive and so was the tea selection. The staff, Ana and Vanessa, were efficient and friendly. Housekeeping was excellent at keeping our room fresh. The spa and gym, though small, were well appointed and spotless. The treadmill was was pretty new and fun to use. My husband and I most enjoyed relaxing in the lobby with after dinner drinks, snacks, listening to music, and watching the world go by. This visit is a treasured pre-COVID memory. Thank you, Hotel 1898; we hope to return.
