The location and the amenities were great. The room was very comfortable, and the staff, great. The roof top bar and pool were a bonus. There is a Starbucks attached for morning coffee, and snacks. The shopping, and resturants are all within easy walking distance and the subway is 5 minutes.

Room Tip: Book a room to the back of the hotel, the LaRambla is vrery busy late into the night.

The Location is very central. The rooms are very nice and the colonial style applies to the buliding.
The breakfast is phenomenal with a lot of small pieces of dishes from fresh fruits to cheese to salat to ham and eggs to ….. and you can have sparkling wine, too.
The spa is also very nice and has a nice atmosphere.
From the top of the building you can see over Barcelona and on the same time you can swim in the heated swimming pool, and if you want can drink some cocktails.
The service of the hotel is also very good.

This was our first visit to Hotel 1898, but it will not be our last! Everything was first class, from the welcome and help received from the front desk staff to the amazing tapas on the incredible roof top bar, this hotel and its employees were on top of their game! Included in your stay is the spa with steam, sauna and heated pool it was a welcome at the end of a day touring this beautiful city. The hotel also offered specials evenings that included featured wines, movie nights, and a Cuban night with music, Cuban cocktails and cigar rolling! The location is in the middle of all of the action the Rambla has to offer, but it was quiet and safe. The bed and pillows were SO comfortable!!
You will not be disappointed!

This was our second visit to Barcelona and Hotel 1898. It again provided a very enjoyable and moving experience. The courtesy and friendliness of all staff at the hotel was excellent. The room provided enough space and storage. Bathroom was spacious and provided various products for shower/bath and personal grooming. We particularly liked the evening events. The playing of the harp and the gin/cocktail mixing of the smiling expert barman were unexpected highlights. The hotel is ideally located on La Rambla and the room was quiet. This meant a good night's sleep in very comfortable beds/pillows.

Great hotel in the middle of the food/shopping district. Small room in comparison to US hotels (pretty standard in Europe). Favorite part of the hotel was the spa in the basement - amazing pool and sauna room. Also enjoyed the included breakfast- not sure if I've ever seen a better spread, simply amazing and delicious. Would highly recommend.
