Although Hotel 1898 is on Las Ramblas, you’d never know it. Hustle and bustle outside, quiet & serene inside (our room faced a small, inner courtyard). It’s housed in a historic building (the Philippines Tobacco company). Lobby and rooms were tastefully decorated. Bathroom was a bit small, but not cramped. Etro toiletries were a nice touch. Service was wonderful. There...

We chose Hotel 1898 after checking out the reviews on trip advisor. The reviews are spot on. We had a standard room, which although fairly small, had everything we needed. Very comfortable bed and nice to have robes in the room. The position of the hotel right on La Rambla was perfect, with easy access to the buses and metro....

We were traveling with another couple and spent a lot of time researching a hotel in Barcelona that would have an excellent location, fantastic service, and nice-sized rooms (because so many in Europe are tiny).

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
