A wonderful hotel in a fantastic location. Decor and ambience makes you not want to leave. Attention to detail without fault. Staff were the best throughtout our 6 weeks of travels. Polite courteous friendly. Made you feel special. Went out of their way to make our 48th anniversary, my birthday special and made an effort on our departure to make us want to return. Would go out of our way to stay at H1989 on our future travels. A wonderful wonderful hotel. Special mention about Francesco (front desk) for his special efforts to make our stay so memorable. Thank you.
Great Location ”
Great location, lovely rooms with big bathrooms. Service top notch. Rooftop pool fantastic & views from the roof nice. Slightly dearer place to stay, eat & drink, but if you want to be in the thick of the action this place will suit.
Central hotel with superb service”
This is like a hidden gem in the middle of Ramblas. We did not want to book far from the center and luckily, we found this hotel. The moment you enter, you will be transported into a totally different vibe - like a men's lounge type. The rooftop terrace with pool also had amazing views of Barcelona. Staff service was excellent. Room was really nice. Would definitely stay here again!
Best Hotel in Barcelona”
Why “the best“? Because the rooms are big and comfortable, the beds are big and comfortable, the hotel is clean and professionally run, the rooftop bar is inviting and the property is well run by a professional and friendly staff. The rooms of this four star hotel are fairly priced when compared to direct competition. Even better, the rooms are priced significantly below five star hotels in the area., and just as good.
Location with friendly and knowledgeable staff”
The location is great , staff and facilities are up there with the best hotels . Not the cheapest but worth the difference as the bed , linen and bath towels alone are premium. Pool , spa and amenities like foyer are great. I have a stayed in a lot of hotels and would rate this a fantastic boutique hotel .
We would definitely stay here again. The staff are brilliant. Nothing is too much trouble. The location is spot on for getting the full impact of this amazing city. The hotel is full of character too.
We hope to go back one day”
Our Superior Double room was on the 4th floor with a small balcony looking over Las Ramblas. We could cut out any noise by closing the doors. The roof top pool and bar restaurant has great views over the city and the staff could not have been more helpful. We loved the location in the heart of the city with easy access to the Metro and to many of the sites we wanted to see.
Elegant hotel right smack in the middle of las ramblas”
The location of the hotel is great, right in the middle of las ramblas. Near the metro and there is a carrefour at the corner of the street. The design of the hotel is elegant and reeks luxury but aptly edited (leather furnitures, wooden floors, marbled bannisters and Philippine inspired decor all through out the hotel) bordering artsy. The room speaks of luxury and comfort (comfy bed, luxurious linens, pillows (with pillow selection), heated towel rack, marbled bathroom, balcony, etro bath products (glycerine soap), thick and soft towels and bathrobes, etc.). For the facilities, they have underground heated pool, spa, sauna (yes!!!), pool at the top of the hotel, lounge/bar. Really everything was well thought of. Breakfast buffet is yum and offers a great selection of food. Loved the bacon! On our second day though, we ordered omelette from a frantic male hotel wait staff and it never came. The rest of the hotel staff were amazing and helpful. Special mention to the Filipina receptionist (christine) for the attentiveness and all the help, and also the cheery elevator doorman. Will definitely be back. I am declaring this hotel as my home base in barcelona. We visited barcelona before and comparing hotel 1898 to the other hotel we stayed at, hotel 1898 really set the bar high.
The Most Fabulous Hotel in Barcelona”
1898 is everything you'll dream of !! The location can not be more central ... The Spa is brilliant with the most beautiful romantic heated pool . The service is outstanding !!! start from the little things like small water bottle for you in the spa and the lightning in the room which you can choose to fit your mood . The shower -wow ! designed for the perfect shower . They thought of every detail to make your stay magnificent . The Terrace & roof top bar is a place you would dream on coming back to . The view there is breathtaking ! And Victor and the rest of the staff are more then just nice . They are super professional and they wants to make your stay the best practically and not as a slogan . One of the best hotel i ever stayed in and far better then many 5 stars hotel i stayed in . Thank you !
One of a kind hotel ”
From the moment we arrived to the last minute everything was perfect. The rooms are beautiful, location is just on spot! The breakfast was delicious & fabiana was welcoming us every morning with her big smile. Angel and the rest of the crow in the reception was awesome. We be back ❤️
One of the best hotels in Barcelona. The staff is wonderful, especially one of the housekeepers, Harbans, and the spa was amazing (many thanks to Irina). At the front desk, everyone was really committed to help us with our trip. About the location, 3 minutes walking to La BOQUERÍA market, Granja Viader and 6 minutes walking to tube stations, department stores and nice locals where you can get wonderful Spanish food.
Good location ”

Very upscale. Had a very nice smelling lobby. Best location- grocery, drugstore, restaurants, points of interests, taxi and metro nearby. Helpful front desk and nothing went missing in our room during our stay. Breakfast had best paella.
Great hotel in a great location ”
It is a bit pricey, but definitely worth every penny. I talked to many locals after wards, they all say it’s one of the best hotels in Barcelona, close to everything, staff is very helpful, the bartenders are great) I went to the spa every single day, sauna is always hot and everything is super clean. I had a deluxe room with a terrace ) it was perfect to relax after a long day of walking around) rooms are maintained very well) when I was on my check out, the receptionist guy literary ran to get me a taxi, definitely didn’t have to do that)) but it’s all about to go one extra mile to make the guests happy) thank u so much!!!
Only good for its location ”
Pros: Good location and beautiful roof top bar. Clean room. Cons: Quite old design and interior. Staff not as friendly as other hotels that I've stayed.
Because of the convenience of the location, we were able to do a lot even though we were not staying a long time. Excellent location and hotel.
great location very helpful staff fantastic facilities
Water wasn’t hot enough for shower. Tub was slippery.
