The hotel is on the Rambla, about 5 to 10 minutes stroll down from placa catalunya , where the aerobus has its last stop , so easy to get to from the airport (40 minutes) and also from where the bus touristica has a stop on the blue and red routes , so a great location. Reception is very well...

Looking for a city break within a couple of hours of London and didn't want to feel like we were staying in a another corporate chain hotel. Booked the 1898 primarily on its location and the value for money via Expedia, upon arrival was hugely impressed by the atmospheric reception, an impression that only got better having been shown to...

I liked the dark wood in the lobby, the always helpful desk clerks, my large room, the eccentric fixtures in the bathroom, the strange but interesting light switches, and the great location. It was opulent.

I had seen the Reception area and the Bar at the 1898 on previous visits, but always thought it was too centrally located at the heart of La Rambla to be a serious proposition as a hotel. How wrong I was! This time, we decided to stay here and could not have found a better place. It is a large...

Believe me, the perfection is in the details. I am actually staying in this hotel, a classy one, with a spa, an outdoor swimming pool and bar, and so one. The best remembering are those you keep with you after your stay. This morning I just asked to access the upper floor to make a photograph of the raising sun...

Fabulous location right on Las Ramblas, the main walking & shopping street. Lobby was beautifully appointed. Our room was spacious & attractive, our balcony large & pleasant. The front desk staff was always attentive, friendly & helpful. All staff members were pleasant & polite. The rooftop pool & bar was wonderful with panoramic views of Barcelona.

We stayed in one of their less inexpensive rooms but it was so pretty and had a great little view out a window that opened nicely. The indoor pool is so romantic and the outdoor pool has 360 degree views. Had a nice beer/nuts in the lobby. Very nice staff.

Wow what a hotel, fantastic location situated on the main la rambla street. We spent 3 nights in this hotel and I would definitely have stayed longer. We were on the rooftop terrace every evening enjoying the night time scenery. The most fantastic part was on the day of my partners birthday we received a knock on the door and...

I had an amazing time with my closest friend celebrating our birthdays. The hotel was an easy few minutes walk from the Aerobus stop and we received a very warm welcome and an effortless checkin. We had a lovely surprise of a room upgrade. We were taken to the room and shown where everything was. All the staff were friendly,...

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.
