You will not be disappointed with this hotel. It is old and grand, extremely clean and well laid out. The team from the manager down to the cleaners are professional, friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. If one of the team can not help you with your request they will immediately find some one who can. In room service, catering and laundry is excellent, reasonably priced and quick. It is situated on the Rambla Catalunya, where you have access to all shops markets restaurants etc. The fresh food market is a five minute walk away and not to be missed, but starts to shut down about 2.00pm. It is surrounded by many restaurants and bars, it is an amazing place. You need to go to the roof top to have a swim or visit the bar and have some Tapas, you will absolutely love the 360* view. The rooms are quiet and the beds excellent. Be aware of the "pick pockets" in the streets and cafe's they are very good at their job, do not let them get close to you so they can touch you etc., when they are touching you that's when there mates or they get into your bags pockets etc. Don't leave bags etc unattended in restaurants, they are real good at taking them. I absolutely recommend H 1898 La Rambla.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the Rambla Street.

I enjoyed this hotel last time I was here with my husband that I came back again to H1898 this time with my daughter. I didn't even look anywhere else! It is in a perfect location and is a stunning boutique hotel with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. We took advantage of the beautiful spa and treated ourselves to massages that were amazing. The staff at H1898 is super friendly and always happy to assist in any way. The front desk staff had fantastic restaurant recommendations for us as well as helped us with directions multiple times. Rooms are nicely appointed as well as spacious (bathrooms too) It was great to come back from a busy day on La Rambla and be able to relax at H1898. Will definitely return next time I am in Barcelona!

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
