As someone who travels very frequently and has covered a huge expanse of the globe. I have to admit I've stayed in better more reasonable 5* hotels which included a breakfast. The location could not have been bettered for which it was chosen, directly on Las Ramblas but for what was offered the room rate did not befit the experience. I attempted to book H1898 directly many weeks ago but it was full, I eventually acquired a booking through a booking agent. a week before arrival H1898 produced a special 'Summer' deal which included breakfast, dinner, a drink and some other benefits, on contacting them directly and registering my disappointment I asked that as perhaps a good guest relation exercise they could include breakfast, they said they were unable to do this and would not hear of it, but we were promised a wonderful stay with wonderful service, but in all truthfulness this never happened.
The hotel itself was clean and the decor was befitting of the building. We booked a 'superior' room which was quite small and came with a balcony. I have to say I hate bathrooms where the shower is in the bath. The beds and bedding were of nice quality and very comfortable. Some of the woodwork needed touching up as there were several chips and knocks.
The best part of the hotel and stay was the rooftop terrace with a heated pool, bar and selection of comfy chairs and loungers along with fabulous views.

Stayed here in August 2011 for five nights and loved it!

It is close to Placa de Cataluna - which is very handy for tourists as this is where the tourism branch has an office.

Lovely rooms, great atmosphere, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Aircon was impressive in the middle of the Catalan summer and the staff were very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed in Hotel 1898 in March one night only, but would come back again. Great location, room, spa, and amazing breakfast !!!!! I found a great deal £150 on one website that include breakfast in price and price was by far best, we stayed Wednsday to Thursday. Drink in hotel bar is not inexpensive but nice to have one(Guiness was 9 or 11 euro).
All staff are helpfull. My opinion that its not a big difference in what you get if you book more expensive room unless you go for the one that have a terrace , i have checked with reception at choice of hotel room option and from the plan i saw.

we stayed at hotel 1898 for four nights in april 2012 and have to say its the best hotel we have stayed in.we couldnt find any faults, hotel very clean, staff so friendly and helpful, spa very relaxing, roof top bar has got great views but can get quite windy. we didnt have breakfast at the hotel so cant comment on that as we went next door to star bucks for a light snack. (not big breakfast eaters!) our room was lovely! we booked a double room and was really pleased with it, lovely and clean! bed very comfortable!

Stayed there tuesday 17th April and the first thing that struck me was very dark and quiet, Room was lovely, aircom quiet, tv changed languages(free), lights had various settings and extras in bathroom and robes made it executive style, €215 included breakfast, buffet stlye but verything, staff couldnt do enough for you and would stay again. Prices in bar high though otherwise would get 5 rating, check out spa(free) if you go, pool very relaxing, roof top pool bit windy though
