Reviewed 12 December 2017

We stayed here in 2016 and this was by far our most memorable hotel. The architecture, the attention to detail were above and beyond. We were steps away from the local market, and got to enjoy the local food every morning. The rooftop pool had the most amazing views, it was worth the splurge for the location.

Dear guest ,

We would like to thank you for your positive feedback in regards to your stay at H1898.

It is great to see that you made good use of the terrace pool and that you enjoyed the marvelous market that is, La Boqueria.

It would be overwhelming to see you again in the near future.

Kind regards

My parents, myself and my 10 year old son visited this hotel recently for a short city break. We had stayed here 3 years ago and didn’t hesitate to book again.
The staff are simply wonderful and were fabulous with my son. They hold quiet evenings, including relaxing music and cocktails, and on one of these evenings my son was asked to help out with the ‘DJ’ ing! The staff soon named him DJ Sam, and he felt really special and spoilt! I must state that these evenings are quiet and not in any way raucous!
The rooftop pool was heated and was like a bath, with drinks and snacks served from the rooftop bar, gorgeous!
Breakfast caters for all appetites and was a wonderful start to each day, again with attentive and helpful staff who were a pleasure to chat to.
Hotel 1898 is by far the best hotel for a city break that I have ever stayed in, and we have already decided to book again for next year. I can not recommend it enough!!!

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with family

This is the best 4*+++ luxury hotel in the center of Barcelona, located directly on the Rambla and only 4 min away from Catalunia Square. The historic building is fabulous. Rooms are very big and very well kept. Bed and pillows are very very comfortable and you get an excellent night's sleep. Wifi works perfectly. The breakfast is divine, service is excellent. Very good price/quality ratio. Definitely recomend. Will go back again there.

Room Tip: Ask for room 346 with a direct balcony to the Rambla

The hotel is very central and has all the facilities you need. Also everything is very clean.
The problem is the staff which is not very well trained. The cleaners are extremely loud when they start cleaning the rooms in the morning and you can hear every noise from the corridor in your room. Also at the reception it is difficult to communicate since not many of them speak English.

However, we kindly inform you that all our reception staff speaks a good english as it is a must in our Standards for a Receptionist. Also most of them speak 2 or 3 additional languages as we do receive people all around the world and our major aim is to understand the guest and provide the best service possible following their needs.

Once again we do apologize for the impression given and thank you for writing on TA your opinion so we can improve with your feedback.

Sincerelly,
