Walking into the quietly luxurious gardenia-scented ground floor sets the tone for this beautiful hotel. The staff welcome you with warmth and immediately you know that they want to make you feel like millionaires. We stayed three nights and they were successful. Our fifth floor room with private terrace was well furnished and thoroughly comfortable. The open bar and pool...

My husband and I spent out honeymoon in Barcelona at Hotel 1898, and it was absolutely perfect. Anytime we talk about taking another trip, all we want to do is come back here! The hotel was fabulous.

This is an upscale hotel right in the heart of the city. It is easy walking distance to a lot of the attractions in Barcelona. It is a little far to walk to Sagrada Familia , but you can walk it if you walk a lot. Everything about the hotel was nice. You are paying for top dollar for it.

Had a lovely stay here while visiting family in Barcelona. Centrally-located so makes for an easy walk almost anywhere. Staff was fantastic. Roof bar and pool (heated) a huge plus, especially for the view of the city. Spa is nice but somewhat small. Didn't take advantage of spa services so can't comment, but steam/sauna/pool are adequate for a smaller hotel...

We loved this hotel! We booked a "superior room" and it was a very large room. The hotel was really clean and their staff was extremely helpful and friendly. It's right on La Rambla and was in between two Metro stations and a short walk to the waterfront. We would definitely stay here again.

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.
