The hotel is located directly on The Ramblas and is therefore perfect for exploring. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the spa is the perfect place to unwind and relax after a days sightseeing. The staff are incredibly helpful.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. We had just arrived on a long overnight flight from Miami and were exhausted and fortunately our room was ready at 9:30AM.

Very happy with our choice of hotels in Barcelona. We spent 11 nights here and felt right at home with the wonderful staff and amenities. The rooftop patio, bar, and pool have wonderful views of the city. The breakfast had everything you would want including sparkling wine and made to order eggs. The room was well-appointed and the service was...

Stayed here 1st weekend of March 2017. The receptionist, Fanny, was superb first of all giving us an upgrade and then having to deal with another rude guest whilst trying to check us in. She clearly explained all about the hotel, and things todo around. The room (505), although not overly large, was ample for our 3 night stay. It...

There aren't enough great things to say about Hotel 1898. We booked this property on a whim for a quick getaway. As a person who travels frequently for work, I am a bit of a grinch when it comes to giving away 5-stars, but this property easily deserved it! The decor and presentation of the lobby, public spaces, and rooms...

After traversing through Barcelona's bustling streets you enter Hotel 1898, a true vacation oasis. From its stunning foyer to its inviting lounge, even down to the silent Charlie Chaplin classics playing within, no detail is overlooked. In regards to the room, we received a complimentary upgrade from Hotel 1898's exceedingly accommodating staff, and it was immaculate. The views from our...

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.
