I like to travel and have stayed at many hotels over the years. But if someone would ask me what my favorite hotel is that I have ever stayed in, Hotel 1898 would be my pick! I visited Barcelona for a 3 night stay. Recently single, I decided to travel on my own and explore the city for a weekend. I wanted to stay in the center of the city, but as I wanted to take advantage of beautiful August weather, I was looking for a central hotel that also provided me with a vacation feel. The rooftop at the Hotel 1898 provided exactly that. Every morning I had a smoothy on the rooftop, spent a couple of hours relaxing next to the pool before exploring the city. I also enjoyed the rooftop in the evenings, where I had a couple of delicious cocktails every night. I also loved my room, super modern and fancy, beautiful hard-wood floors, great view into a cute courtyard, and light-dimmers that allowed to adjust the light to your current mood. I also appreciated the green marble in the bathroom, which was a great modern twist to your traditional white marble bathroom. Next time I visit Barcelona, there is no doubt I will stay at the 1898 again!

Excellent hotel in terms of service, location and amenities. The bedroom we had was lovely - very spacious, extremely clean, good comfortable bed and plenty of toiletries in the bathroom. The hotel spa was also a nice treat! The roof terrace must be beautiful in the summer but we visited in January so it was too cold to make use of it. Really recommend this hotel - our stay was perfect.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking your time for sharing your high reviews regarding your recent visit.

It is lovely to read, your kind comment about service, location and amenities.

We have to agree our beds are very comfy and after a long day they are the perfect place to rest one’s head and doze off until the next morning.

There is nothing better than starting/ending the day in our Spa or our roof terrace but although the terrace is open all the year, the bar service is provided only on summer time.

Look forward to welcoming you again at the H1898!

Kind regards,

1898 is one of the best hotels in Barcelona, stayed for 4 wonderful nights and was very pleased with the service and hotel room. We stayed in a higher category room with private outdoor jacuzzi and terrace and it was a great. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and had very prompt service. The hotel is located right on La Rambla which is the most vibrant area of Barcelona. Definitely a must stay.

This hotel is in a great spot in the city. Easy walking distance to Eixample, Barri Gottc, the waterfront, shopping and public transportation. We enjoyed the hotel and our stay here was wonderful despite the hit or miss friendliness/helpfulness of the front desk staff. Some of the front desk staff were absolute gems and others were terribly rude. All the other staff we encountered in the hotel were very pleasant and helpful. Hotel 1898 is clean, comfortable, has a fabulous roof top bar/restuarant with good food and wonderful views of the city, and they put out quite the breakfast spread.
