We stayed here on our first trip to Barcelona and loved it! excellent value for money, the room was amazing! Initially we were slightly worried about our stay as we are a young couple (19 and 20 years old) but they treated us with respect and were very helpful! Hotel is a bit out from Barcelona but it literally right outside a metro stop so that was no problem at all for us! Overall a great stay and would highly recommend!

I actually stayed at this hotel in Nov of 2010 but I kept forgetting to write the review, I feel like this review will help a lot of travelers so I wanted to post it. We were here for a conference so we did not actually select this hotel but it looked great in pictures. The decor is really cool and the bathrooms in the rooms are nice and large.

The restaurant in the hotel had terrible food and the service was really poor, not because it was slow but because our waiter was rude. There were 6 of us and all 6 were disappointed. I pulled back my sheets and saw some small bugs (the bed bug thing was going on and I was freaked out). We called down to the front desk for a change of sheets. When housekeeping brought us a new set - they were dirty or had stains on them. Our next effort was to call down and ask to change rooms. The put us in a new room, so we took our key card to the new floor. We opened the door to our new room to find someone else sleeping in there. I completed freaked out and no longer felt safe. That poor person must have been terrified too. The front desk was horrible in handling this situation - they were not helpful and were quite combative. We drove back to H1898 for the remainder of our stay.

I am not the type of person who wants to give a bad review as revenge - this is merely to help out anyone thinking of staying in this hotel. If I can prevent one person from having my same experience it will be worth it. I felt like we tried to be patient by three different attempts to remedy the situation and none of them worked.

Also, the location is terrible, if you want to be close to the city center and where the action is, this is definitely not the place for you.

This hotel is a landmark in the local area, visible as you come in to land at Barcelona airport. It is a very tall tower with pristine rooms featuring a fantastically modern bathroom and very spacious sleeping areas. I have visited a couple of times now and the reception staff are always very helpful, with good instructions on how to get to the central train station using the metro system. The one down side is the hotel is not near the centre of the city, so probably not the best location for couples to head to on holiday - but for business users, it's ideal.

Nice design once you cope with the black and mirror 'permanence'.

The hotel is a very large facility. rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, bathroom is large and well-equipped.
Weirdly enough, you enter your room directly in the bath-room (probably to save sqm of a useless corridor). Nice view on illumination of the surroundings.

Common spaces and lobby are really modern design.

Reception is providing a good service.

Metro within reasonnable distance to partially overcome the "in the middle of nowhere" syndrom. It is not inside city for good and for bad - no sightseeing in the vicinity - but it doesnot have the stress - and the traffic jam - of the city centre.

Really depends on your visit purpose

Room Tip: recommend the upper levels for a better view

Stayed here for business - room was very quiet, which I much appreciated. The gym is excellent - huge, has all things you need. Breakfast was not included as such, but was quite tasty. Internet was included for me. The shower is very cool - has three settings, which are great fun. Altogether a good stay, would recommend for business. Bit far out for Barcelona city visitors though, might not be right for a weekend stay in town...

Room Tip: ask for high up - the higher, the better the views

The Hesperia tower is a great base from which to explore the fantastic city of Barcelona.
The rooms are very modern and comfortable, the facilities very good.
It is quite away outside of the city but is within 500 metres of the metro station so getting around is easy.
The restaurants in Barcelona are brilliant the influence of "El Bulli" is obvious everywhere.
If the weather's good don't miss Parc Güell and if the weather's not so good eat in Mercat de la Boqueria the seafood grill is to die for.
Food & ambiance at 41⁰ cocktail bar is amazing but you need to book from U.K, a long way in advance.

Room Tip: get a high floor the views are excellent
