Clean comfortable room, friendly and very helpfull staff, pool terrace area was room and not crowded with beautifull views over the city, central position but double glazing kept city noise out of the bedroom. cafes either side of hotel entrance did a good breakfast for about 12 euros which is cheaoer then the hotel one. there is a supermarket one block along on the Rambla towards the main square which sells reasonably priced good quality food/ wine/ water etc.

The hotel is amazing, great views on rooftop pool bar, staff very polite and rooms were cleaned daily, my partner did however get pick pocketed by some girls with low tops and very touchy feely, watch out for them!!! They also pull their tops up to reveal breasts, not very nice!! When we reported this to the hotel they were very accommodating and sympathetic and wanted to help us in any way they could, although this tarnished our stay we would definitely return to the hotel!!

I have now stayed here 5 times and I hate to say it but maybe Im starting to look for negatives. The room as ever was excellent (always stay in a deluxe room with terrace) the house cleaning staff are excellent..friendly and unobtrusive and the room and terrace were spotless every day. Reception was good..friendly staff but as usual could be quicker and more of them. The problem I had with this stay was the roof terrace and new staff up there. All new faces and all poor! On the odd evening I could get a table (annoying when im a hotel guest and the place is full of non hotel guests!) the bar staff walked past me several times before taking my order then when my drink eventually arrived (with no nibbles ) i got no smile or courteousness. Hotel management need to make some changes up there. Im considering a change of hotel.

Stayed at this lovely chic hotel In beginning of July. Room was spectacular, very roomy with lots of space for luggage. Bed was super comfortable. Rooftop bar was sexy and chic a must see. Hotel was conveniently located near all attractions and right on the Rambla. Noise was never a problem.

Room Tip: High floor gave the bst views

We were immediately impressed upon entering the hotel. The front desk staff was polite and professional and spoke English very well (we could have gotten by with limited Spanish, but...) and that was helpful. We had an interior room that overlooked a red courtyard, it was quiet and peaceful. The room was small but we did not mind a bit. It had everything we needed. The bed and pillows were comfortable and everything was clean and well kept. The bar downstairs is really nice but if you go to the rooftop there is another bar and a wraparound deck overlooking the city. It was fabulous up there day or night! There are tables and lounge areas with big pillows and umbrellas. They have a swimming pool on the roof as well as one in the basement spa that is amazing. We felt the location was perfect as well. I can't imagine it getting any better. We will definitely be back!

Hotel is in a great location- close to many sights. The room was beautiful and well maintained. Many great restaurants nearby, having La Rambla right outside the door was fun. Rooftop bar/pool a nice plus when you want a break from the city. Recommend this hotel!!

Went on a citytrip to Barcelona and stayed at the H1898 for three nights. We couldn't have picked a better hotel. Friendly staff, spotless room, amazing roof top bar with swimmingpool. Booked a privilege room wich was spacious, very clean with bad and seperate shower. The room had a window facing the Rambla but heared absolutely no noise from it.
Breakfast is not cheap but was served on the roof top (only during summer I believe) and had everything you would desire, even a glass of cava.
Superb location, close to Plaça Catalunya and subway nearby.
The hotel is not among the cheapest, but worth every cent.
Will, without any doubt, stay again at the 1898 if returning to Barcelona!
