Myself and my husband recently stayed in Hotel 1898 for a long weekend and we would both agree that it was first class!
We were upgraded on our arrival to a superior room and although the room was quite small it was spotlessly clean and bright. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was good and spacious. We are a young couple and we appreciated the quietness and our room was looking out over the backcourt.
Breakfast was a treat. On our first morning we had our breakfast on the rooftop. Great views of the city.
I would agree that this hotel is on the upper scale of the market price wise but the location, right slap in the heart of La Rambla, the hotel, the staff could not have been more helpful. We dined on two occassions in the Isabella Restuarant and the staff were very courteous and helped up pick out different tapas from the menu.
One thing I would add is when booking be very clear if your breakfast is included in the price. We thought it was. However we were on a special break and although €25 for breakfast is steep we thought why not!
Our stay was very enjoyable and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and if we ever get the chance to go back to Barcelona this is where we will stay....
