Hotel's Favourite
Wow! What a hotel! We visited Barcelona last July and revisited again this July 2021 and stayed at this divine hotel. Having arrived during the night approx 12.30am we were unsure what we would be met with but thankfully we were greeted and checked in by the lovely ‘Farran’ of whom was kind, professional and incredibly helpful whilst making us laugh. He gave us everything we needed and from then on we knew this hotel was special thanks to him. The rooftop terrace and pool is stunning, spectacular views over the city and even though it was on reduced hours due to covid it was still amazing. We enjoyed many bottles of fizz on the rooftop thanks to the lovely bar team, bottle of sparkling Anna is delicious (staff recommendation) and was the perfect tipple whilst watching the sunset. Our bedroom was always kept immaculate and the team provided everything we needed during our stay. Added bonus having an indoor pool, that’s fun! We had breakfast included which had everything from cheeses, hams, fruit, fresh pastries, yogurts, hot foot to even chocolate puddings! We were greeted by a gorgeous lady called ‘Mercedes’ of whom was SO friendly and kind also, she gave us a glass of cava at breakfast and offered any assistance with covid testing etc. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to couples and can’t WAIT to return.

We stayed at Hotel 1898 in order to visit specific places in the centre of Barcelona. The hotel exceeded our expectations - on all fronts. The room was excellent, beds very comfortable, everything was clean, roof terrace was a gem.........however, the jewel in the crown was the staff, from the concierges, to reception staff, to terrace staff. All smart, friendly, well-informed, efficient and helpful. We had a great stay and will be back!

Room Tip: We had a room that was slightly larger than the basic - well worth it.

We have stayed here before and love it. The staff went way out of their way-Especially the young ladies at the front desk. The room was very clean and the roof top area was a very romantic place at night.

There’s really nothing to fault this note on. The location is perfect and it has all the facilities you could want - the roof terrace is especially good. Staff are always friendly and the building is very clean (hand sanitisers etc available in the most used areas).

We loved everything about it - we're still talking about how nice the smell is as you walk into the lobby...Management could you please tell us what aroma that is? The rooftop is lovely, perfect place to lounge. Every member of staff is very kind. The location is perfect. It's expensive but it's worth it. What more could you ask for? Go and enjoy!

Everything was amazing. Spa, beds, our terrace, rooftop area, how close it was to everything in the city was just wonderful. But definitely the staff made the trip even better. They helped us make reservations, booked the spa for us privately, gave us great advice about the city etc. When we are back in Barcelona we would only stay here!!
