I so wanted to give this four star and it's not the hotel that lets it down, it was the loud metro line that runs right underneath it. We were on the third floor and it vibrated the walls every 3 mins. I am an extremely light sleeper so the noise from the main road from tourists and the metro... More

H1898 is a charming hotel nicely located, with very accommodating , friendly staff The breakfast buffet was excellent, they had champagne on the buffet and a bottle was open every morning, nice not to have to worry about being the only one who wants it! Great comfy bed and bedding The rooftop bar/pool/lounge is a must Altogether a nice experience

Very friendly, very helpful, very comfortable room. We didn't eat here, just had drinks in the bar a couple of times and they were very well presented. Come back?... Yes!

Latin word for memorable sums up the H1898 experience. Unpretentious, efficient, friendly Receptionists in a classic style, retro lobby make a good welcome. The deep red background wall in the room is like a Cubist arty fact. Blue glass bottles of still water add to the charm of this gracious hotel. The electric heated clothes drying rack provided in the... More

The environment is nice and the restaurant quiet and cozy. We were a group of five. Starters are very creative and main courses have good quality, both fish and meat! Deserts menu is short, but ask for the Ice Cream, it surprises! Service is super nice: close, helpful and funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We came to the 1898 for a quick afternoon drink with friends - Enter the lobby, find the lift and I think its floor 7 and your at the bar. What is good about 1898 is they could have this as an exclusive bar for people staying at the hotel, so it is nice they let anyone come and enjoy... More

Its an exceptional place to eat from the roof terrace, however the night we were there was very windy and cold (blankets were provided!). Food and service was good.

I have never eaten or stayed at the hotel itself, however the rooftop patio is open to the public and it offers the quintessential Barcelona terrace experience. Drinks are expensive but if you order a Mojito (it will be the most expensive drink of your life) but it is well worth it just to soak in the views. A great... More

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.
