Beautiful and cozy hotel located in the heart of Barcelona. Bustling streets filled with activities & shops all around. Rooms were clean and staff friendly and the bathroom was really nice & classy. We also rented bicycles and enjoyed this beautiful city on bike! Definitely worth staying again! Do support 1898!

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights as a treat for my birthday. It was a first rate hotel--very well appointed and run. We stayed on the 5th floor in a room with terrace, which admittedly would be more useful in warmer months. Room and bed was huge, and very comfortable. Wood floor. Great bathroom and shower. Buffet breakfast... More

We loved staying at the Hotel 1898! The women at Reception were so helpful with directions and suggestions, and all the staff people we met were friendly.

The aesthetics of this hotel are the best of any I've stayed in. It is gorgeous -- the original high and vaulted ceilings, parquet floors, enhanced by blown up black and white photos of the tobacco plantations that speak to the hotel's original use as the headquarters of the Philippine Tobacco Company. I had stayed here before and remembered the... More

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.
