Great location

Posted Aug 29, 2014
Hotel 1898 is located on a busy part of town, surrounded by dozens of restaurants, cafes, open markets, and shopping. The hotel is very well cared for, and has a beautiful rooftop bar/restaurant and pool. Although the comfort of the room was great, our room faced a popular bar/restaurant open past 2am, and the sound kept us up later than we wanted.

Great location, lacking welcome and any 'atmospher

Posted Aug 28, 2014
Check-in took 20 minutes from time of arrival at Reception! Only one person in Reception, engrossed in prickly discussion with couple checking in ! No 'welcome', apologies for delay,, or any attempt to acknowledge we were standing there !!! Could things deteriorate? Oh yes!! Attempted check-in was 8 minutes ahead of 3pm check-in time. Promised access to room in 15 minutes.....but eventually shown to room after almost an hour.. Once we'd politely expressed our disappointment we were given a voucher for two drinks as an 'apology'. This is a very elegantly furnished hotel,with a rather gloomy gentleman's club decor and hushed atmosphere in the dimly lit Lobby.. Highlights? Well located, good roof-top bar and pool area. Tips for travellers? Hotel doesn't have ironing boards etc available to guests,

Great city centre location,great roof bar !!

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Roof Terrace area /pool and bar. Location
Cons: The pool on roof could have done with slightly more heating.
Location: Excellent location for sight seeing , bars and plenty of places to eat. Lovely eateries right around the corner of the hotel.
This is a fantastic hotel with a great location for sight seeing the city. It has the added benefits of a roof pool, fantastic bar both on the roof and in the lobby and the decor and finish is fantastic. The beds were comfortable, and the rooms had everything you needed, although in the room we were in it was a slightly dark room with not much natural light but it did not really matter to us as we were out so much but if you prefer a lot of natural light I could see how some people might be bothered by it. We had great experiences with the staff , as she booked various things for us without any sign of annoyance like you can get in some places. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, a great hotel in a great city !!!!!!

Great although!

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: Everything. except!
Cons: In a tourist town like Barcelona they did it all extremely well. Except! They do not have a concierge to book and recommend how to do!
Location: Everything Spanish
The staff, the service, the food, the room, the decor all were 5 star we believe. Except!

A good hotel location with great atmosphere

Posted Aug 20, 2014
The hotel located on la rambla street which is the main shopping area in Barcelona. The hotel is so clean with a nice decoration. The only problem we faced that we discovered that the A/c is not working so we informed the reception but they couldn't fix it and there were no room available. So we stayed for that night in another hotel and returned back next day and they have us a room with a working air condition. We even heard on that night that 10 rooms have problem with the AC. Breakfast is nice but not in that extent. I recommend to visit the roof floor as they have a swimming pool and the view is amazing.

Perfect in every way

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Location: Location right off Ramblas but cross over and you're straight into the Barri Gottic areas
The location - just off the Ramblas - is great for access to some of the best spots in Barcelona. The lobby is amazing, the staff genuinely helpful and pleasant, The room was amazing with great air-conditioning. The bed was massive and really comfortable. Rooms were refreshed twice a day. The rooftop terrace, pool area was stunning with great views over the city and amazing cocktails. I've stayed in lots of hotels in Barcelona but this was by far the best

Unscale ritzy hotel in with a mint location.

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: The entire feel to the place was very upscale. It had one of the best atmospheres.
Location: Near by there are a lot of good restaurants (I recommend the Organic Market) and you can find a bunch of touristy stuff too like wine tours.
Definitely a good time. The hotel staff was super helpful. Room service was unreal, and the place was walking distance to a ton of good restaurants and bars.
