Barcelona is my favorite city in the world. My best friend and I visited the city for the first time in 2008 and stayed at the Hotel 1898 and fell in love with it then. The true test to a hotel is to go back for a second stay and love it again. We went back in 2012 for our...

Due to a reservation issue, we ended up in a fantastic room on the 5th floor, with a private terrace and pool. The pool wasn't heated, which would have been a problem had we actually booked this room. The location is great, right on La Rambla, with everything you need nearby. The bed/mattress was quite comfortable. The spa was very...

A truly wonderful place to say right on Las Ramblas. A beautiful building that is managed incredibly well to deliver a wonderful guest experience. This was my second stay here with the family and we will definitely be back. A pool on the roof, amazing rooftop bar and impeccable rooms. Can't recommend it enough.

My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights. Everything was great. Most importantly, c very comfortable bed. One constructive point - if you are a lighter sleeper, do not get the room on the La Rambla street side as many people are roaming the streets all night long hooting and hollering.

For a sightseeing tour to Barcelona it would be hard to find a better located hotel as its conveniently located in the centre of the city. The hotel itself is well appointed and clean and the rooms and decor feature strong colours...to be expected in Barcelona!

I don't think we could have found a better located hotel. La Rambla is the major street in Barcelona and the hotel is located about 5 minutes from the square and 10-15 minutes from the marina. It is less than 5 minutes from the Gothic Quarter, Palau Guell, and the Mercat de Sant Josep de la Bouqueria. This hotel has...

Can't beat location! A quiet room on side street was requested and it did make a huge difference. Unfortunately the doors are so paper thin that you can hear every guest conversation or maids talking in the hallway. Front desk staff try very hard to please and couldn't be nicer! Lighting in rooms is horrible! You have a choice of...

A modern, luxurious place to retreat from the city I highly recommend Hotel 1898 for the discerning urban traveller.

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.
