Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is a fabulous hotel, centrally located and beautifully designed. The staff was super helpful, there’s a phenomenal buffet breakfast and live music three nights a week. Also remarkably well priced. The area is very noisy at night so bring earplugs if you’re a light sleeper or turn in before midnight. Would stay again!

Hotel's Favourite
Unbelievable experience in the best possible way! From the moment we entered, we felt an aura of incredible history and rich culture: from the furniture to the small to the colors, it was beautiful. The rooms were beautiful with views and wonderfully furnished, so none of my family has any complaints about them. Everything in the hotel felt very high end and luxurious. With posh amenities like the mini bar with drinks and food throughout the rooms and hotel, to the numerous lounges and pools both indoor and outdoor that incorporate the nature, history, and qualities of Barcelona at its finest, the hotel truly felt like a resort. The Tea Time was just as superb as the people who served it. The staff was not also very amiable and accommodating, but each went above and beyond to ensure the quality of our stay. The breakfast should also be mentioned. If you are to believe that this is simply a continental breakfast, you would be mistaken, as it is a full on feast with incredible quantities of delicious food and lush furnishings around the room. The service here never quavered either: Vanessa, Tiontse, Ana, and Ewas were all incredible and so friendly. The location could not have been more central either! In the middle of La Rambla, a famous avenue in Barcelona, everything is within walking distance, including tours, shopping, culture, and history. Our stay at this wonderful hotel ended far too quickly, and before we knew it, we were gone from one of Barcelona’s finest offerings. Our stay was the epitome of a fantastic vacation, and we could not have asked for a better, more hospitable stay.

Classy little hotel with excellent staff. The room was spacious and very clean. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay great. Loved the live music in the lounge and the vibe of the place. Conveniently located near Las Rablas, and although you hear some bad things about this area, we never once felt unsafe. I would definitely stay here again!

Was Back to this hotel after many years. Great location, nice roof top, Nice rooms, but various employees need more coaching - the heart of this hotel went missing and one feels that some employees just do their job and not more a even without a smile. Employees from breakfast area are excluded - they were very nice ! And the perfume smell in this hotel is so intense that it burns you in your eyes. Less is more ! If a guest doesn’t like the smell they won’t feel at home

All in all our stay at Hotel 1898 was great! Service was excellent, the food was delicious, the hotel was elegant, clean and in a great location! I gave 4 stars as we decided to splurge for a premium room with a deck which looked spacious in the photo, however, when we arrived it was a VERY (shockingly) small room. It didn’t look at all like the photo of a specious room that made us want to upgrade. I recommend the hotel put accurate photos on its website to avoid disappointed (shocked like we were) customers.
