This hotel really was amazing, we were so glad we stayed there. Nice lobby area with a bar attached when you first walk in. Friendly and helpful staff at reception, room was beautiful and clean and very comfortable. Good location at La Rambla which was central to everything, we walked almost everywhere. Hotel also included a free 1.5hrs walking tour of the Gothic quarter which we did and it was worth it, interesting history to learn. We also spent some time on the rooftop terrace with lovely views of the Barcelona Cathedral and the city (included pic was taken on terrace). The only things that could be improved: - the perfume in the lobby is overwhelming, way too strong and should be lessened - the shower has almost no water pressure - there are no tv channels in English other than the news, which is not a nice way to relax. We were glad we brought a Mac and streamed our own Netflix whilst I was sick - the indoor pool and spa area was so hot and humid that we decided not to use it. No one else was there either. - they forgot to let us know when our room was ready despite us repeatedly stating we were waiting in the foyer, right in front of them, and would need a doctor as soon as room was ready as I was quite sick. They did however ask how I was the next day when they remembered us. The above are really small issues. The rest of the hotel experience was flawless and I’d highly recommend you stay here.

Amazing

Location: The best location for Barcelona. Everything within walking distance. Our room overlooked Las Ramblas and we never had a problem with noise.
We stayed at Hotel 1898 for 5 nights on our honeymoon and could not be more impressed. The staff, the building, the location, the room itself were all above our expectations. We loved the restaurants and facilities. We will absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to Barcelona!
