My wife and I stayed here in December. It was a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. The staff was great. The spa with the underground pool was amazing. My wife like the massage she got there.

My husband and I had a great time here. We stayed in a standard room which was quite large. The rooms and hotel are spotlessly clean. The bat on the rooftop terrace make the best cocktail. And it was warm enough to swim in the pool on the rooftop in February. The spa is lovely and restful most of the...

Perfect position in the heart of the city. The room was extremely quiet given it's location. Wonderfully helpful staff. Spa is free and there is a lovely rooftop bar and heated outdoor pool. We loved our stay. We chose not to have breakfast as was expensive but there are two very good restaurants that serve breakfast next door!

Our week-long experience at Hotel 1898 was outstanding from the get-go. We checked in around 8:30 in the morning and not only was there a room ready to accommodate our very early arrival, but we were also pleasantly surprised by a complimentary upgrade. Our 6th floor room (#624) was immaculately clean and the bed was heavenly. (By the way: we...

We stayed here in September 2016. I simply cannot find fault with this hotel. If i am being ultra picky; I would say that the breakfast is on the expensive side but then again, I tend to eat a light breakfast and so never get my "money's worth". If you enjoy a long and substantial breakfast then I expect it...

Right in the centre of Barcelona, right on La Ramblas we lived this hotel. Bedroom clean and comfortable, great spa, great roof top bar and pool. Staff really helpful and breakfast more than adequate. We are not strangers to the city, we found this little gem rather than staying at our usual on the beach. This time of year it's...

Perfect location and beautiful hotel both the decor inside and out. The roof top bar and pool so spectacular and relaxing and then you can walk out the front door into the heart of Barcelona. The staff were all friendly and happy and the service through out was perfect! This is the best place to stay in Barcelona!!!

One of the best hotels I've ever visited. Great courtesy of the staff, very rich breakfast, and rooms full of peace and silence just steps away from the noisy Rambla. Price is high but adequate to the quality of the service.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
