Loved the location, so convenient . The hotel is beautiful and loved the top roof restaurant with its bar and swimming pool. Unfortunately our room was interior, not that we stayed inside that much since there is so much to do and see in Barcelona. The staff were super friendly and very helpful booking restaurants for us. I will definitely...

We stayed in H1898 in November to celebrate my husband's significant birthday. From the check in to check out the service was amazing, polite, helpful and very friendly. Our room was very comfortable, the bed a dream to sleep in and the bathroom luxurious with everything you needed, the room afforded views onto Las Rambla - perfect. Yes the noise,...

Stayed here for a few nights before a cruise. Visited a year ago as well. Hotel continues to impress. Staff is great, hotel is sharp and well maintained. Roof top bar is exceptional with incredible views of Barcelona. Will stay here anytime we are visiting the amazing city of Barcelona.

I really mean it. Do not look at another hotel. I stayed here for my 21st birthday as a present and it could not have been better. Brilliantly located, brilliant staff - always helpful, booked trips and transportation for me. Bedrooms are splendid. Lovely big beds, good air-con and big bathroom. Pool and roof-top-bar are amazing. I am very particular...

Rarely have a visited a hotel as near-perfect as this one. The facility is immaculate, yet cozy and comfortable. The rooms are beautiful and have everything you need and want. But it's the service I want to commend most highly -- professional, knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. My wife and I will stay at H1898 whenever we're in Barcelona. There is...

We stayed at Hotel 1898 for two nights in mid-December. The hotel is really attractive and comfortable, and brilliantly located slap-bang in the middle of La Rambla. The hotel is only a block away from the covered food marker, which is a great place for casual eating and in fact we took breakfast there each day, rather than bothering with...

The hotel is just off one of the busiest and loudest streets in Barcelona. We had the corner rooms on the 4th floor and could hear street noise in our room.

Regarding the peeling paint, we apologize and will be reported to the convenient department. Once again,...

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.
