The room (and especially the bathroom) was spotless. The bed and chair were comfortable, the staff discreet, friendly, and professional. Many thanks to the whole 1898 team, and Ana, Francisco, and their coworkers (the staff I saw most frequently, in particular) for your professionalism and general helpfulness especially in the morning before the coffee began to work.

The hotel team were very friendly and helpful but the showers were cold, the breakfast was poor and there was no one around at the bars to serve so had to wait over 30 minutes. The spa team were excellent though

Excellent position to explore the city. Premium room was absolutely perfect, big , spotlessly clean and really quiet. Indoor pool was lovely for a morning swim , which I had to myself most mornings. Breakfast was amazing . Lovely local meats , cheeses , fresh fruit and of course excellent selection of breads. My husband particularly enjoyed the cava with his scrambled eggs or omelette !,,The staff in the breakfast room were friendly , helpful and professional. A real credit to the hotel . The last night we returned to the room to find a complimentary bottle of cava , very welcoming after a busy day. I would certainly recommend this hotel for a city break , warm , comfortable and welcoming .

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and make a late check-in. The staff were kind and care for us. The room was always clean. Breakfast wasn't as good as other foods in Barcelona but was ok. Excellent place to stay. Unfortunately, We don't have time to enjoy the indoor pool but it looks very excellent and clean. Thank you

The location is very good, that was my choice appropriate for my visiting plans. The Hotel has Spa like facilities which I did not use, hence I do not evaluate those. Nicely traditionally decorated Hotel; I had a huge room with high quality mattress, but it faced the main street and despite the windows, one could hear noisy cars or street work. Breakfast was a great experience and a very pleasant way to start the day, although it had a diverse and very good quality, the outstanding feature relied on the staff friendliness (E.g.Rosa) epitomized by the welcoming Ana in charge.

I’ve coming here since 2018 and it’s slipping every year. The free glass of cava and chocolates on pillows went first. Fair enough, times got hard. Followed by the bathroom luxuries . Fair enough, we all want sustainability. Then the service went. Emails unanswered, reception got more surly. Now the maintenance has gone. The roof top decking is still wonky from last year. It’s got plastic traffic cones on it now! The spa downstairs is missing lights. The Turkish steam room closed for repairs. What used to be a variable tropical shower has a clogged head so the water is more like a wet weekend. The wooden floor and tables in our room were really scruffed and needed a good varnish. There’s no reason for the work not to be done in the quiet season. . As a repeat customer you get nothing back. The rooms are chosen at random rather than giving guests the nicest room available in that category. I always stay at this time as it’s my birthday treat.. I did get a free bottle of cava sent up ( thank you) but hours later after arrival. There was no greeting or even a smile when I checked in. No mention of a Happy Birthday . Contrast this with the previous night in a less expensive hotel ( Catalonia Born) where I was given a big welcome. They noticed from my passport I’d be waking up on my birthday which they acknowledged and within minutes of checking in they sent, not just a free bottle of cava but a large plate of fresh fruit to the room. The difference was very noticeable. Speaking of rooms we were in 445. Good size but only a small window. You could feel the metro. I thought I could do better. Moved to 505. Natural light including in the bathroom but very much smaller. Closer to the lifts which was good but neither room ideal. The positives remain purely location, the two pools and rooftop views.. Also the breakfast team Anna and Rosa who are always charming and could be bothered to remember you. The ladies in the spa and who clean are very sweet too, However sadly this hotel relies on these positives and cuts corners on everything else. Shame.

The location is a perfect place for starting a town trip. The whole stuff is extreme helpfully and friendly. In the morning time at breakfast the three ladies in the breakfast room (Ana, Rosa and Diana) will welcome you with a smile and a perfect service. The ladies at the reception are also very kind and helpful. There is only one point which could be better: The internet connection is very slow. In total we recommend this hotel to 100% and we hope that we can come back next year.
