Hotel fantastic in every way. Lots of extras that many hotels no longer offer, such as robes and water and toiletries, even a turndown service and a chocolate on your pillow. Roof top bar is worth a visit for the spectacular view, it takes your breath away. Luxurious surroundings and lovely friendly staff. Amazing location and fabulous city. We would... More

Rooms were well appointed. Great towels and linens. Pillow menu! Rooftop outdoor lounge very cool with padded furniture under canopies. Good drinks but a bit pricey. Location right on La Rambla. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Overall, an excellent hotel.

Brilliant long weekend at this very classy hotel, rooftop bar & pool were a fantastic escape at the end of a hard day's sight seeing ( the pool is heated and like a warm bath in the winter) Very helpful staff, concierge spot on with restaurant recommendations. I would thoroughly recommend .

Both the rooftop bar and the lobby bar offer a welcome relief from the hectic pace of nearby La Rambla. The bartenders are expert at old fashioned cocktails. The bar snacks are good, too. Even if you don't stay here, it's worth a visit.

We stayed here several nights while in Barcelona. The location 1/2 block off LaRambla makes it walking distance from many sites and neighborhoods. A couple blocks north is Playa Catalunya with access to all types of transportation. The hotel was well kept and the staff helpful.

The 1898 is a fabulous hotel centrally located on La Rambla. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Although we didn't use it, the roof top pool looked very inviting. We will definitely stay at the 1898 on our next visit to Barcelona.

I enjoyed the hotel, the rooms are lovely, the lobby gorgeous, and the rooftop bar quite nice. The staff is top rate! The rooftop pool is very shallow, more of a wading pool for kids but pretty on the roof at night. La Rambla is "the" tourist street meaning it is loud, crowded, and the food is poor and over...

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.
