Best hotel ever! Fantastic! such a great location for everything, fantastic. Great facilities, lovely pool on the roof (with great seating area and views of Barcelona) and lovely pool in the basement as well. Would thoroughly recommend.

Stayed here for two nights in January on a romantic getaway and early Valentines and it didn't disappoint. Probably one of the chicest places I've stayed and was very atmospheric. Mood lighting in rooms where the whole of the lighting system will change throughout the room with the click of a switch, pillow menus, rain showers the works. It's location right on La Rambla means that you could just walk out of the hotel and be handy for everywhere including the square to catch the airport shuttle, taxi's or the bus tours. I found Barcelona an amazing city and very easy to get around and this hotel certainly made my stay. We went in January but I would imagine the roof would come alive during the summer. There was a lovely roof top pool which was heated and bar/seating area. Any questions please ask.

On a rare child-free few days away, we opted for the 1898 in Barcelona. Passed by it lots of times before, and liked the look of it, so booked for four nights.
We were pleased with our choice. Its a gorgeous hotel. It's so good location-wise, that we couldn't go wrong.It's about five minute walk to Placa Catalunya.
I loved the room, and it was surprisingly quiet, considering its location on La Rambla.
Clean bathrooms and bedroom, with our own balcony, with plenty of toiletries.
E25 taxi fare in from the airport.
We didn't eat dinner, but had great breakfasts. We didn't use the spa or pool, not enough time this trip. Too busy eating Tapas and drinking Cerveza! Did have cocktails in the Lobby bar and could have stayed longer on all occasions. Life is tough!!!

A beautifully designed hotel with a roof top view of the city (as well as a pool and dining area) all in the center of Barcelona’s La Rambla...account for a great hotel!
We stayed at 1898 with our 1.5 year old baby girl in June 2011 and loved the hotel and service. Our room had a cute baby crib waiting upon our check in and the staff was more than happy to help out with any question we had and helped us locate some missing bags.
The hotel is located in a prime location (a 5 min walk from la Boqueria market - a must visit) as well as many other major attractions such as shopping areas, the old city, the port etc, etc. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel, especially for couples.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights - it is well located and nice to walk from through the gothic area at all hours.

We checked in here after staying our first 2 nights at Hotel Arts - everyone was professional but the Hotel lacked the warmth and service level we had just come from at the Club Leveles of Hotel Artes for the same nightly rates. we went through withdraw of our complementary drinks and food and conversational staff.

It has a beautiful rooftop with heated pool but unfortunately no service at this time of year. We also did not take advantage of the spa and indoor pool in the basement area which looked very nice.

The room was nice and comfortable - we stayed on the 5th level and had our own balcony - the parapet wall was high so it felt more like a courtyard - I could see this being much more worth it on a warm summers day. The bedding lacked down pillows and instead seemed like foam. The shower had a slow drain but was fixed promptly within 5 minutes of alerting the front desk.

The wifi was complementary - as it should be - the lobby area was very nice with lots of room to lounge.

We enjoyed being able to walk out the door into the older parts of the city and thought the hotel was beautiful - it just felt uneecessarily expensive when compared to our prior hotel.
