Decided to stay here New Year's Eve for 2 night after our earlier trips through France & Italy. Was not disappointed right in the heart of La Rambla the main strip of Barcelona which for us was central to everything. After a hard day walking seeing the sights a visit to the SPA here with heated pool, steam room &...

Dear Glenn, Thank you very much for your time on TA sharing your experience with us. We are very happy to read your good review and as you well mention our location is perfect for the plan you describe.

We stayed at Hotel 1898 for two nights in mid-December. The hotel is really attractive and comfortable, and brilliantly located slap-bang in the middle of La Rambla. The hotel is only a block away from the covered food marker, which is a great place for casual eating and in fact we took breakfast there each day, rather than bothering with...

The hotel is just off one of the busiest and loudest streets in Barcelona. We had the corner rooms on the 4th floor and could hear street noise in our room. (We were there during the week between Christmas and New Year's, admittedly, a loud festive time but still....we could hear street noise.) I live in NYC and am used...

Dear guest, Thank you very much for sharing your opinion with us on TripAdvisor. As you mentioned, we are located in the heart of the city, which has a lot of advantages but there are some external factors that are very difficult to manage. Regarding the peeling paint, we apologize and will be reported to the convenient department. Once again,...

Great location! Near the markets and great restaurants. The spa and pool located in the bottom of the hotel was amazing! Great room with a patio. Rooftop restaurant and pool with a view was spectacular! I would definitely go back!

The room was small and a little underwhelming for a luxury hotel. The outdoor pool on the roof is very small and not, as far as I could see, used for swimming. There is a better pool in the basement. It is part of the Spa and has good water pressure points. Not quite ideal for swimming but it has...

This is a really beautiful hotel in a historic building. The lobby area is spacious and cozy, with lots of little nooks to sit and relax, and smells amazing!

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.
