Spent 3 nights here on a friends recommendation. This hotel is a delight. Very masculine bit very classy. Excellent multilingual staff. Helpful and attentive but not in your face. We didn't eat here but can thoroughly recommend the bar. Good knowledgeable staff who can make a cracking cocktail without instruction. Good nibbles too. Great roof terrace with heated pool tho...

I really loved this hotel for its sleek style and chic accents. It is also very well located to allow you to walk to many of the the wonderful sights and stroll around Barcelona. We stayed here for 2 nights and would definitely recommend this hotel. It is very comfortable with spacious rooms and cool balconies.

Elegance with what feels like masculine style. Superb luxurious comfort and understated excellence in the rooms, facilites and service. A bar that knows exactly how to make a proper Dry Martini. Great spa and a rooftop pool and bar area in the middle or town, but selectly away from it.

Hotel had everything you needed, bar was a bit dull at night but with so much going on around barcelona we never needed to use it anyways. Pool was lovely, really relaxing, good service and lovely staff.

Loved the location, so convenient . The hotel is beautiful and loved the top roof restaurant with its bar and swimming pool. Unfortunately our room was interior, not that we stayed inside that much since there is so much to do and see in Barcelona. The staff were super friendly and very helpful booking restaurants for us.

We stayed in H1898 in November to celebrate my husband's significant birthday. From the check in to check out the service was amazing, polite, helpful and very friendly.

Stayed here for a few nights before a cruise. Visited a year ago as well. Hotel continues to impress. Staff is great, hotel is sharp and well maintained. Roof top bar is exceptional with incredible views of Barcelona. Will stay here anytime we are visiting the amazing city of Barcelona.

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.
