I just returned from a stay in the Hotel 1898 in Barcelona and could not fault it in any way. Effortlessly classy and contemporary and a real haven in the hustle and bustle of Las Ramblas.
We were lucky enough to have a room with a balcony over Las Ramblas and it was just magical to wake up with the natural sounds of Barcelona waking up around you. Plush rooms with lots of lovely finishing touches.
The underground pool and spa is to die for. The only downside was that the roof top pool and bar was always really crowded but that's to be expected due to the weather and number of guests so I still didn't see that as a negative to the hotel :)
I can't really comment on the food as we didn't eat in the hotel but the waiting staff always had the right level of attentiveness when needing anything done or ordering drinks.
All in all, one of my most magical city stays EVER! I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone.
